Lockerbie wreckage disposed of in Canada

[This is the heading over an item posted yesterday on the blog The View from Falling Downs. I have no idea whether the assertion contained in it is correct and no source is cited. It reads as follows:]

The Pan Am 103 that went down over Lockerbie Scotland has always been a bit of a mystery.

It was pinned on a Libyan security guy who was supposedly in the employ of the ever-evil Gaddafi. Gaddafi wrote a big fat cheque to compensate the virtuous nations for his bad, at which point he thought he was free and clear to assume a business as usual mode with his new-found "friends" in the west.

We know how that turned out.

But what I didn't know was that the actual Lockerbie wreckage met a hasty end in the blast furnaces at one of the nickel mines in Sudbury.

There has long been theorizing about Abdelbaset al-Megrahi's culpability in the Pan Am 103 disaster, with a strong case being made that Libya may not have been the guilty party at all.

So the fact that the Pan Am 103 wreckage, just like the 9/11 wreckage, is no longer available for independent perusal, shouldn't come as a complete surprise.

[RB: Yesterday at Swansea University, neither of the examiners had any hesitation following the oral examination about recommending that the candidate should be awarded the degree of PhD for his Lockerbie-related thesis. I hope to be in a position to give further details about the thesis in the not too far distant future.]


  1. I suspect and do not trust this report. There are several very serious allegations of criminality in the hands of Sir Stephen House, Chief Constable of Police Scotland, and his officers. Some of which depend upon the material remnants of 103, AVE4041 and other related forensic evidence.

    Furthermore, why would the Canadians even dream of touching this? Doesn't make sense.

    If true, the only individuals that could have dreamed it up may not be working terribly far from Chambers Street.

    Moreover, if true, I would be most surprised if The Chief Constable did not see this as a damned good reason to bash a few political heads together!


  2. I don't think it's true, but we'll see. It was good to highlight it though, even if it's only a rumour.

  3. And today another 300 or so innocent people fell out of the sky, in what looks like a re-run of IR655. When will it ever end?

  4. I asked and got the following response:

    I heard this story from a trucker who delivered shipping containers full of Lockerbie debris to Falconbridge in Sudbury, Ontario. According to the story the smelters at the nickel mines there run at higher temp than typical blast furnaces, and the higher temps are required to melt the alloys found in jet engines."


    Weird indeed. I vaguely recall something about the wreckage being moved, right. Should (parts of) it have totally disappeared, it would for sure add some credibility to this story.
