On September 19, 1989, all 170 passengers and crew were killed when a bomb explosion caused UTA Flight 772 to break up in midair over the Sahara Desert. Twenty years later, seven American families, whose loved ones lost their lives that day, got $10 million from Libya, whose terrorists carried out the attack.

The Forgotten Flight: International Terror, Diplomacy and the Pursuit of Justice tells the story of the worldwide investigation, including diplomatic and legal efforts to bring justice to these families, through the eyes of the author and one very determined lawyer: Stuart H. Newberger.
