I remember reading a few years back, one of the F/A's aboard PA1736 who survived the Tenerife tragedy was also scheduled to fly PA103 on Dec.21 1988 (Lockerbie) but for some reason she got rescheduled or swapped shifts. I think shes retired now. Anyone know for sure or was this just a rumour?

ACDC8,

I am not sure about that one. Either way, a tragic and unnecessary accident.

As a side note, this next 27th is also my 25th birthday!

Hey - it's my 28th! I was born the very day this happened.

Also on a side note - isn't this posted just a little early....?

You're right. I must confess I did on purpose, since I will be out of my country by then, and from this Sat.

Sorry pals.

[By the way, congratulations for your birthdays!].

My 20th birthday is March 27 of this year. Strangely, I didn't know about this (I'd heard of the Tenerife accident, of course, but didn't know the date of it) when I pointed out to my girlfriend that her birthday (Nov. 12) is the anniversary of the AA587 accident in New York.
