THE LONGEST NIGHT A Personal History of Pan Am 103

by | Read by Helen Engelhardt

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Helen Engelhardt recounts with painful honesty the loss of her husband, Tony, in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988. The production style is a blend of audio drama, documentary, and audiobook, with Helen's heartbreaking narrative enhanced by sound effects and music appropriate for the scenes—from a romping New Year's party in the ‘70s to a somber memorial. Spliced within the narrative are real recorded materials, including her child's first reaction to the news and conversations with friends and family. While the segments of reality help give greater context to the plane crash, it is Helen's own narrative that ultimately delivers the heart of the story—of the full experience of loss and the steps we take to move forward again.
