Thirteen years ago today I lost 16 friends when PanAm 103 was blown out of the sky by terrorists. I don't want to start a debate on the whole thing, just for those of us here and now to stop a moment and remember those no longer around. I know there are those here at A.net that don't care whether or not PanAm exists anymore, that is not the point of this, just take a moment to remember. From a former PanAmer, I thank you all.

Indeed so. At 19.03 every 21st December, I pause a moment and think of those killed both on the flight and on the ground; and the families of those affected.

I hope that those really responsible for this atrocity will one day be called to account for their actions - not the poltically expedient scapegoats who had nothing to do with it.

I think that on the last day of this earth all of us will have to account for our actions on this planet. Those responsible, no matter what will have to pay their maker for the wrongs done. Of that I am confident.

I was lying on the foredeck of a yacht in Francis Bay, US Virgin Islands watching the stars when my dad wandered up and told me there had been a 747 crash in Scotland. We discussed the possibility of terrorism. It was hard to reconcile the beauty of the Caribbean at night with the horror that must have been happening in Lockerbie, and in the homes of family & friends of the victims (later I found out a girl aboard was a college aquaintence)as the truth dawned.

Why are beautiful machines and their precious cargos ever at risk of falling victim to cowards? And that's what they are, cowards. Neither the balls to back up whatever point they're trying to sell, nor the wit to actually communicate it. Just stupid, unfeeling men. It is a small justice that, with minds so puny and empty as to commit such things, they reached Hell long before the act even happened. And Hell in its' various forms is where they'll stay.

Well said Heavymetal. I couldn't have said it better than that. May all Passengers and Crew and the families that were in their homes Rest In Peace.

I was 7 year old on that fatefull day, and i can still remember that night. I live about 10 miles away from lockerbie, and heard the blast from either the bomb or the plane crashing. I was fortunate enough to not know anyone that lost thier lives in the accident, but my father knows plenty of people that work for the fire brigade that were sent through to help out.

God bless everyone who lost thier lives, and the families of those who lost love ones.



That'll teach you

I was in Lockerbie and lost my best friend at the time so today is a very sad day for me!  Sad

I was eight years old and had just got out of surgery. When the news story came on, I heard it, but mom and dad turned it off... but I will never forget where I was when it happened.
