Historical Note

Pan Am Flight 103 was destroyed by a terrorist bomb on December 21, 1988. Onboard the plane were 35 students studying abroad with Syracuse University and they, along with 235 others, died in the skies and on the ground at Lockerbie, Scotland. Since that date anniversaries have been commemorated at various locations from the village of Lockerbie to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C. Syracuse University honors the 270 people killed each year during Remembrance Week, but particular attention was paid to the 10th, 15th and 20th and 25th anniversaries of the disaster.
