25 Years After Pan Am 103, Memorials on Both Sides of the Atlantic

Share on: Share on Google+

Memorials on both sides of the Atlantic marked the 25th anniversary of the bombing of Pan Am 103.

On December 21, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was flying from London to New York, when a bomb exploded in the cargo hold, killing 270 people, including 11 on the ground in the small Scottish town of Lockerbie. Also among those killed were 35 students from Syracuse University.

Today, while the town of Lockerbie may look virtually unchanged, the events of that fateful day are still burned into the memories of the locals who were there. On the other side of the ocean, a wall stands at Syracuse University to honor those lost.

Watch Peter on CBS Saturday Morning, reporting from Lockerbie and Syracuse University, to see the memorials on the 25th anniversary of the tragic bombing.
