Lockerbie wreckage disposed of in Canada

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.


  1. Hi!
    Very interesting.
    As a Lockerbie-case follower I would be very interested to know if you have a source for this you can refer me to?
    Thanks in advance!

  2. Frank,
    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.
