Looking for Lockerbie free pdf For most people, the words 'Lockerbie, Scotland' evoke one image: the iconic photograph of a battered nose cone of the Pam Am Flight103 jumbo jet surrounded by bodies, investigators, and debris on a lonely hillside. For the members of the Syracuse University community, that photography also represents the loss of 35 students, who were returning home from a semester spent studying abroad. Those students became part of the 270 lives lost in the Pan Am 103 Air Disaster on December 21, 1988, a tragedy that remained the deadliest terror attack on U.S. citizens until 9/11. Two Syracuse University professors and a group of student writers and photographers set out to expand the world's understanding of that town. Lockerbie and its residents charmed them with their generosity, their history, and their lives. So much so, they wanted to tell the world about this place and redefine it beyond the events of one fateful day.Over the course of 12 years and multiple trips, photography professor Larry Mason Jr. and magazine professor Melissa Chessher brought more than 50 students to capture this town in images and words. Through stunning photography and personal vignettes, "Looking for Lockerbie" introduces the world to some of Lockerbie's most engaging personalities and places: the last milk delivery man- its boy racers- the cheese factory- a local model- the high school and one of the area's few remaining rural schools- a Tibetan Buddhist monastery- a Burns supper- the town's annual gala- and many of the castles, ancient-stone sites, and Roman landmarks that make this borderland historically significant. The book celebrates the connection between a 'wee' town and an American university forged from the grief and sorrow of one horrific air disaster.
