When Secretary-General of the United Nations Dag Hammarskjöld‘s Douglas DC-6 airliner SE-BDY went down over Andola, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) back on Sept. 18, 1961, controversy immediately swirled around the cause of the crash.
After a lengthy United Nations investigation, the final conclusion was that the crash was caused by pilot error which directly led to the accidental death of one of the world’s most sincere humanitarians. But not everyone remained convinced.
Some 50 years later, the people and the government of Sweden, home to Hammarskjöld, are asking the UN to reopen the investigation, and give complete disclosure to their fact findings on that fateful night.
