On June 27th 1980 a DC9 belonging to the private Italian airline ITAVIA disappears from the radar screens without launching any emergency signal and crashes between the islands of Ponza and Ustica. Eightyone persons died. The hypotheses on the disappearance of the DC9 are three: structural failure, a bomb in the rear toilet of the plane, or an air-to-air missile which struck the civil aircraft by mistake during a battle between unidentified military fighters. Roberta Bellodi, a Sicilian journalist who lost her daughter on that night, and Corrado di Acquaformosa, a Deputy in the Italian Parliament, member of the Commission set up to throw light on the crash of DC 9, try to find out the truth, entangling themselves in a labyrinth of cover-ups, disappearance of proofs and key witnesses. Their researches lead them to a fourth, bloodcurdling hypothesis.
A character is said to have worked for "the then Communist regime of Albania". The Albanian Communist regime lasted until 1992. See more »
Idiotic and disgusting conspiracy theory
Conspiracy theories usually depend on a couple of logical fallacies. This film manages to deploy every logical fallacy known. It is exploitive of the victims and their families.
I suggest anyone wanting to research this bombing google: Frank Taylor Lessons from Ustica Investigation. Every single claimed inconsistency or evidence of a conspiracy this junk film contains has been long debunked.
This airliner was destroyed by a bomb placed in the rear toilet, and with a virtual certainty done so by the Abu Nidal, Hezbollah or associated group just as Mohammed Rashed.
If there was ever any "cover up" it was the Carter administration failure to acknowledged that they had bungled a number if intelligence operations in tracking several known Arab terrorist cells.
