Exclusive: Murder Most Foul And The Truth Behind The Downing Of Swissair 111 – A Lucky Escape For One – Giovanni Di Stefano
On 2 September 1998, Swissair Flight 111 departed New York, United States of America, at 20:18, on a scheduled flight to Geneva, Switzerland, with 215 passengers and 14 crew members on board. Some 53 minutes later, the flight crew smelled an abnormal odour in the cockpit. Their attention was then drawn to an unspecified area behind and above them, and they began to investigate the source. Whatever they saw initially was shortly, thereafter, no longer perceived to be visible.
