Bali Remembers – Pan Am 812: An Island Remembers its Dead 40 Years On


(4/27/2014)

A moving and memorable commemoration on the 40th anniversary of the crash of Pan American flight 812 was held on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at the Pan Am Memorial located in a quiet corner of Padang Galak in Sanur, Bali.

The event was held to honor the 107 souls from 10 nations who perished when a Boeing 707-321 crashed into the hills of north Bali near the village of Tinga Tinga.

Bali Remembers – Pan Am 812 was made possible through the generous support of its main financial sponsors Conrad Bali Resort assisted by BIMC Hospital and Siloam Hospitals. Additional sponsorship was provided by Vision 1, Bali Advertiser and Mr. Fixit Bali.

Bali Discovery Events provided production and management for the event.

Conrad Bali’s welcomed the opportunity to support the commemoration ceremony, continuing an affiliation started seven years ago when staff members of the Resort took it upon themselves to clean up the then-deteriorating monument and conduct regular clean up and ritual rites. The connection between Conrad Bali and Pan Am 812, in fact, dates back to the actual crash in which a Hilton corporate vice-president for food and beverage, Maurice Raymond, was numbered among the dead.

The highlights of the 40th anniversary commemoration of Bali Remembers Pan Am 812 that was attended by a broad cross section of the Bali community included:
  • Traditional offertory prayers offered by Guru Gede Alit Adnyana, the guardian of the Pan Am Memorial.
  • A moving rendition of “To Where You Are" performed by singing star Anton Mirzaputra. of the nationally renowned singing group "Jamaica Cafe."
  • Gamelan performance by Narwastu Art Community. 
  • Choral selections by the Bali Community Choir directed by Brendan O'Donnell.
  • Prayers by representatives of the major religions practiced in Indonesia.
  • A musical recitation of the John Gillespie Magee’s poem “High Flight.”
  • The reading of the names of the 107 victims of Pan Am 812 by survivors in attendance and staff members of the Conrad Bali, led by the Resort’s general manager, Jéan-Sebastien Kling.
  • A memorable rendering of the Indonesian song written by Chriyse “Lilin-Lilin Kecil” (The Tiny Candles) by sung Ricky Pare and the Bali Community Choir as 107 candles were lit.
A tour for survivng family member to the burial site at Tinga Tinga was provided by Bali Discovery Events on the day prior to the ceremony.
