So I just found out that one of my co-workers was booked on this flight. He was flying out of Belgium and they landed way too late to board. Plane was still on the ground but they had already retracted the walkway and they were getting ready to leave the gate. He was super pissed. Ended up staying overnight and got another flight. Had no idea what happened until he landed in the US.

He didn't do it. He was released because his appeal was due and wanted to prove his innocence. Very good two part documentary on Al Jazeera. Looks like the CIA were involved.

Bomb was planted in Heathrow airport in a CIA bag during fire alarm in baggage processing building. Iran and Saudi Arabia planed the attack in retaliation
to the US attack on Flight 655. This was released after Margaret Thatcher died.

PanAm was the original international long haul carrier, and in the early days this was with flying boats, which took off from and landed on water. This allowed for larger aircraft and more stops, as there were few airports in those early days.

And because of the slower speed of propeller driven aircraft, it could take days for a flight, with many stops for refueling. So the aircraft had sleeping berths, and was equipped to serve breakfast lunch and dinner, etc.

Thus, PanAm named their aircraft things like "Clipper of the Orient" and they kept this classical naming into the jet age on the 747s.

One of the saddest aspects of Lockerbie was this essentially ended PanAm. The negative publicity surrounding the lax security at the time led people to choose other airlines, and PanAm went bankrupt a few years later.
