News from Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster Archives at Syracuse

For the past year the Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster Archives at Syracuse University has been accumulating a list of relevant dates relating to the tragedy of Pan Am 103. From December 5, 1988 when the Helsinki Warning was issued to U.S. government outposts in Europe, through February 25, 2013 when a contingent of U.K. and U.S. law enforcement agents visited Tripoli to continue the investigation into the bombing, The Archives has included key events relating to the bombing and subsequent investigation, the families’ continuous search for justice and airline security, and memorial events held in Lockerbie, Syracuse and Washington, D.C.

The timeline provides condensed captions summarizing each event. Most events also have a relevant image, document or video attached; these are all part of the Archives collection and provide additional information for those who would like to explore the events in detail. Also included in the timeline are lists of related collections contained in the Archives so that researchers may better understand how our materials may be used for scholarship.

The timeline will continue to be updated as new events in the Pan Am 103 saga unfold. The Archives hopes that this timeline will prove to be a valuable resource for those interested in the history of Pan Am 103.
