UTA 772 and Pan Am 103
Today being Bastille Day, it seems appropriate to provide a reminder of what may be regarded as the principal link between France and the Lockerbie disaster. This is the destruction of UTA flight 772 over Niger on 19 September 1989 resulting in the deaths of all 170 passengers and crew on board the DC-10 aircraft. References to this tragedy on this blog, dating from 7 January 2008 to 28 May 2013, can be accessed here.
