Suspicious Aviation Tragedies: Introduction

“Governments lie. They do it all the time. And, much as we’d like to believe otherwise, the US government is no exception. There were times when we may have believed otherwise. But after Vietnam and Watergate, we know better.”

Ted Koppel, “The USS Vincennes: Public War, Secret War.”

Pan Am 103 — Lockerbie — 21 December 1988

The tragedies of Malaysian Airlines Flights MH-370 and MH-17 have been the source of much speculation. This is not a new phenomenon, even if the Internet makes it easier for the information – correct or false – to quickly spread over cyberspace.

Air disasters are major events which have always attracted worldwide coverage. More often than not, these tragedies have given rise to ‘Conspiracy Theories’.

Nevertheless, there is evidence that some governments will not hesitate, once in a while, to hide the truth about an airliner crash either to hide their role or to benefit from a “Noble Lie”.

In this series, I will simply tell you my feelings about a dozen airliner tragedies which I find very disturbing.

Among the airliner tragedies I intend to write about are the following:

1961 — Ndola United Nations DC-6 crash

1970 — Swissair Flight 330

1976 — Cubana de Aviacion Flight 455

1980 — Aerolinee Itavia Flight 870 (USTICA)

1983 — Korean Airlines Flight 007

1985 — Arrow Air Flight 1285

1988 – Iran Flight 655

1988 — Pan Am 103 (Lockerbie)

1989 — Avianca Flight 203

1989 — UTA Flight 772

And perhaps a few others…

Getting Started!

We shall start this series next month with the story of :

1961 — Ndola United Nations DC-6 crash

PS: These posts will be updated on a regular basis whenever new facts and information bubble to the surface…
