The Chronology of PT/35(b): 15 September 1989

Today, I updated the page dedicated to the history of PT/35(b) since its alleged discovery on 12 May 1989.

The reader must understand that this is the official timeline reconstructed and wholly accepted by the SCCRC.

15 September 1989

Feraday sent the Lads and Lassies memo (prod 333, DP/137) dated 15 September 1989 to the SIO along with 4 Polaroid photos that he took himself (prod 334, DP/138).

According to the SIO, Henderson’s, HOLMES statement S4710J, during September 1989 he was contacted by Feraday and informed that he had recovered PT/35(b) from PI/995 and he considered it of great significance.

Following this contact, Henderson caused Williamson to liaise with Feraday and then carry out the necessary searches of the recovered property and wreckage in an effort to identify the PCB, and he was kept abreast of progress by Williamson.



To be continued.

One Response to The Chronology of PT/35(b): 15 September 1989

    Apologies, this comment is not really connected to the aforementioned post but thought the copy info and link should be shared;
    March 15, 1989

    “Dear Mr. Prescott,

    I am replying to your letters of 15 and 24 February about aviation security.

    In your letter of 15 February you refer to a story which appeared in “Today” newspaper on 15 February, which describes how a journalist gained access to a Pan Am aircraft. The Pan Am compound at Heathrow is not part of the restricted areas at the airport which are covered by the requirement of the United Kingdom aviation security programme. Aircraft which have been taken outside the restricted areas at airports (for whatever reason) are required to be checked before they are brought back into operation. I am assured that these procedures have been properly followed in relation to aircraft serviced in the Pan Am compound at Heathrow. There was no breach of the aviation security programme. There is certainly no need to call an emergency meeting of the National Aviation Security Committee.”

    Comment –
    Ever so slightly defensive………it also appears UK Government agencies had responsibility for only certain parts or areas of airports, therein allowing statements as ‘no breach’ of UK aviation security programme !

    Pan Am compound ? – Is this the same baggage shed or did Pan Am have a ‘compound’ at Heathrow ?
