Panel Explores Pan Am 103 Legacy at SU
On Dec. 21, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was blown up en route from London’s Heathrow Airport to New York’s JFK. Among the 270 killed were 35 students studying abroad through Syracuse University. The effects of this tragedy were felt across campus and are still present today. Though heartache and grief were the initial impetus for many of the lasting changes Pan Am 103 wrought here at SU, what has emerged from this tragedy is a legacy of hope, understanding, and commitment to always moving forward.
