268. 12/21/1988

“One of the most devastating acts of Islamic terror perpetrated against the west had been the downing of Pan Am Flight 103 on the night of December 21, 1988. When a Toshiba boom box packed with ten to fourteen ounces of Semtex (a Czech version of C-4 plastic explosives) detonated over Lockerbie, Scotland, it ripped open the Boeing 747, killing 259 passengers and crew on board. Another eleven people died on the ground.”
