"THE ILL FATED OF SWISSAIR 111, FLIGHT"
The SwissAir plane that Patricia E. Ezell was on total 230 people in addition to her, findly totaling 231, there was two infants not recorded on the passenger list, thats why the total is 231. The delta airline had reserved some seats on swissair 111 thats why Patricia was there. Delta called Louise Brown on Sept. 9, 1998, and informed her that there will be a memorial in remerbrance of all the passengers on swissair and invited all in the family to participate, because they believe a body will-not be found. SwissAir 111, crashed in the cold waters killing all on board, most of all the people were found in pieces as-well as th plane. The place was seven miles south of Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia.
Zurich Airport, September 5, 1998, 23:00--On Saturday evening at 22:00 CET the Canadia Transportation Safety Board released a transcript of the radio contacts between the pilot of Swissair flight 111 and the air traffic ( ATC ) station at Moncton, New Brunswich.
The transcript appears below.
SR 111: Swissair one eleven heavy is declaring Pan Pan Pan. We have smoke in the cockpit, request deviate immediate right turn to a convenient place, I guess Boston.
ATC: Would you prefer to go into Halifax ?
SR 111: Affirmative for Swissair one eleven... prefer Halifax from our position.
( Note: at this point, Halifax is approximately 70 nautical miles, Boston is approximately 300 nautical miles, and the aircraft starts a descent from 33.00 feet. )
ATC: Okay, active runway at Halifax is zero six, should I start you a vector for six ?
SR 111: Yes, vector for six will be fine, Swissair one eleven heavy.
ATC: ...turn left heading zero three zero.
ATC: ...you've got thirty miles to fly to the threshold.
SR 111: We need more than thirty miles...
Controller : ...turn left...to lose some altitude...
SR 111: Roger, we are turning left.
SR 111: We must dump some fuel. We may do that in this area during descent.
SR 111: Okay, we are able for a left or right turn toward the south to dump.
ATC: Roger, turn left heading of two hundred degrees and advise me when you are ready to dump...
SR 111: We are declaring an emergency at time zero one two four...we are starting vent now We have to land immediately.
ATC: Swissair one eleven, you are cleared to commence you're fuel on that track and advise me when the dump is completed.
ATC: Swissair one eleven check you are cleared to dump.
Note: There were no futher communication from Swissair 111. Approximately six minutes later the aircraft contacted the water.
According to the Mobile Register page 7A, on 8th of Sept. 1998, it explains:
After reporting an emergency, the plane started toward the Halifax airport but made two sharp turns as it tried to descend and dump fuel.
Swissair officials say the plane couldn't have made a direct approach to Halifax because it was flying too high and was too heavy with 30 tons of fuel.
The call was made 70 miles out of Halifax, but the pilot would have needed 130 miles to make a direct landing, Swissair said. The flight-data recorder recovered by divers near the wreckage of Swissair Flight 111 contains no data from the crucial minutes before the plane crashed investigators said Monday. A Canadian navy submarine has detected a signal from the plane's other "black box"---the cockpit-voice recorder. The chief crash investigator, Vic Gerden, said the flight-data recorder retrieved Sunday was in good condition and should provide more than 100 types of information ranging from altitude and airspeed to whether the plane's smoke warning lights were on. But he said there was no data from the last six minutes before the MD-11 jumbo jet Wednesday night plunged into the ocean off Novia Scotia, killing all 229 people aboard. Gerden said the data recording stopped once the plane dipped below 10.000 feet. A strong possibility, he said, was the plane lost electrical power at that stage.
More than 1,400 military personnel are involved in the search, and more than 200 stress counselors have been assigned to support them during their often grisly work.
