On December 21, 1988, four days before Christmas, a U.S. flagged commercial passenger jetliner, flying from London to New York, exploded at 31,000 feet, scattering remains of 259 people and the Boeing 747 over 845 square miles. Neighborhoods in Lockerbie, Scotland, were set ablaze, killing 11 people on the ground. 

The bombing of Pan American Flight 103 remains the second most deadly terrorist attack against the U.S. and the deadliest terrorist attack and air disaster in the UK. Murdered in the attack were 270 people from 21 countries. Each lived with the hope and promise of what the coming holidays and future could bring. Instead, they were torn away from their loved ones in a preventable and senseless act of terrorism.
After 35 years, the victims' families stalwart activism and quest for accountability and justice pressured U.S. authorities to arrest their 1st suspect in December 2022. Alleged Libyan bomb-maker Mas'ud Kheir Al-Marimi is currently awaiting trial in DC. 

With the help of those who share our mission to commemorate and educate about this terrorist attack, the PA103LL Foundation has digitized and archived thousands of primary source documents from around the world and put a face and story to nearly all of the 270 victims.

We have exponentially increased visitor traffic to Tundergarth Remembrance Room in Lockerbie and continue to provide essential support to maintain the space as a place of tribute and education. Our unique, globally accessible, virtual Living Memorial contains 270 individual profile pages where visitors are invited to learn about the victims and to upload tributes, artifacts, and other tokens of memory. 

Every memory shared, every story told, and every artifact saved helps us fulfill our mission. 

Here’s what we accomplished this past year to commemorate, educate, and help new generations understand the loss, the aftermath, and the lessons of this attack.

For the first time in 35 years, the only collection of victim color photographs, curated by the Foundation, was unveiled on six banners.

After decades of memorial services at Arlington National Cemetery where previously attendees could only see victims’ names etched on the Memorial Cairn, generations of family members, government officials, the media, and all others in attendance were able to see the faces of the people they were honoring.

At Syracuse University’s Remembrance Week, the Foundation honored the victims by presenting the banners to Syracuse University's VP, Steven Bennett, contributing a set of the banners to the Syracuse University Pan Am 103 / Lockerbie Air Disaster Archives, and laying a wreath with flags representing the 21 victims’ nations.

A complete set of "Time for Justice" victims banners were presented to the FBI, the Scottish Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal and Police Scotland, and are now on display at the Police Museum in Dumfries, Scotland. The banners take pride of place among the many other items dedicated to the attack and can be seen by serving police officers and members of the public alike.
