Remembering Pan Am Flight 103: David Jardine
David Jardine, a firefighter with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, recalls the night the alarm sounded and he responded 30 years ago to the events on December 21, 1988, in Lockerbie, Scotland.
An image that I see from Lockerbie, I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen it, and I keep memorizing it—it’s the end house at Park Place that lost what we call the gable end. You know, the end wall and a portion of the front wall. I remember looking up to this house because we weren’t allowed to go anywhere near the fuselage at that time. There was a dresser, there was a dressing table. And on the dressing table there was an image of a vase, a white vase with two hands and a ball in the middle of it. I just … these are the kind of images that I sort of defer to or I see more often and unfortunately, there was a number of fatalities on the ground which I couldn’t pick a face out of.
But these things … I think I was maybe wondering the level of impact and you had taken a look and see what could unfortunately have happened or how lucky were we that it didn’t. Sadly, so that the 259 on the plane and the 11 on the ground at Park Place that lost their lives. My thoughts are always with them. But it could have been so much worse.
