Wreckage of Pan Am Flight 103.

The CIA recently released 13 million pages of declassified material online, and of the 930,000 files present, one dealt with their attempt to investigate Pan Am Flight 103 using psychic methods on June 7th, 1990, two years after the plane crash.  Pan Am Flight 103 crashed over Lockerbie, Scotland, on December 21st, 1988, killing all 259 passengers and crew on board, along with 11 people on the ground.  

The file describes how the CIA asked a psychic to describe their impressions of a photo of the reconstructed baggage carrier that held the deadly bomb.  The experiment was held as part of Project Sun Streak, the successor to their earlier Project Stargate, and expressed how they attempted to access the "Psychoenergetic" abilities of the subject--described in part as the ability to perceive things through non-sensory means.

According to the file, which includes 22 pages of scrawled notes along with a typed account of the experiment, the psychic was able to describe the subject as a “cylindrical shape that is clear and see-through” with “something inside it that seems to be moving through it and out the other end”.

The psychic continues to describe the event, referring to the cassette player in which the Semtex explosives were hidden.

“The stuff inside it is light, smooth, stringy, air, and it is moving down, making a ‘whoosh’ sound,” the psychic described. “It is speeding up as it goes down and out. It makes me want to throw up.”

This is contained in the typed notes of the session, which include the psychic describing the explosion itself.

“There is a bomb in the box and it explodes. It makes me think of a bomb blowing up a person. I can see red, fire and jagged flames. Something about the target makes my eyes burn.”
