Abstract:

What really caused a C120 aircraft carrying the Pakistani leader General Zia ul Huq to tumble out of the sky on August 17, 1988? Was it mechanical failure? Could it possibly have been the result of human error? Was it perhaps the CIA brass taking a risky gambit? Some have said it had something to do with an old blind woman's curse, or the moral of that ancient proverb about star-crossed lovers whose lost love brings down a jet. Surely it was not, of all things, a most unfortunate casuality of the mango season's bursting bounty.--
