“Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.” Nietzche
On 23 December 1988, the New York Times published a piece regarding PA 103. One can read:
“Frank Taylor, an aviation safety consultant and former investigator for the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, said a cockpit recording that appears normal until the end could indicate that an explosion knocked out communications, electricity and perhaps even severed the cockpit from the aircraft. Taylor made his comments in Washington before cockpit data from the Pan Am flight was released.”
On 27 June 1980, Itavia Flight 870 crashed into the Tyrrhenian Sea near Ustica, killing all on board.
Frank Taylor (one of the British investigator participants of the third technical investigation) concluded that a bomb had been planted in the rear toilet.
On 23 January 2013, Italy’s top criminal court ruled that:
“There is abundantly clear evidence that the flight was brought down by a missile.”
