AVIATION INVESTIGATION REPORT

IN-FLIGHT FIRE LEADING TO COLLISION WITH WATER

SWISSAIR TRANSPORT LIMITED

McDONNELL DOUGLAS MD-11 HB-IWF

PEGGY'S COVE, NOVA SCOTIA 5 NM SW

2 SEPTEMBER 1998

REPORT NUMBER A98H0003

 

 

The following paragraph is taken from the TSB's Report under the heading

 

3.1  Findings as to Causes and Contributing Factors

 

According to Larry Fogg,

the Boeing Investigator assigned to this investigation,

this was the earliest electrical event that the TSB could determine to have occurred.

Since the fire could never have started due to a criminal cause,

simply by default and speculation,

this short-circuiting electrical event became the source of ignition.

 

 

Note the station number 383 on the bottom of the sketch.

This point on the opposite side of the aircraft, just behind and above the window frame,

was the location of this first electrical event that the TSB established,

and by speculation determined that it was the cause of the fire.

What is of significance in the following is the first paragraph.

3.3   Other Findings

3.3   Other Findings

The RCMP closed down their 'investigation'

because the TSB had found no indication of a criminal device.

However here the TSB indicate that the RCMP found no indication of criminal involvement.

 

The following is what was written in the TSB's report about AES.

Of importance is that the described purpose of the AES testing

was for the Anderson Theory.

Its purpose was to determine the timeline for the creation of the wire melts.

According to Dr. Brown,

what is written here is not the truth of his findings.

Of more significance is that

nothing is said about the findings of the suspicious elements

Magnesium, Aluminium, and Iron,

in such quantities as to warrant a suspicion of a criminal device.

Of course, how can those elements be mentioned

while at the same time write that there was no indication of such a criminal device?

THE ROBERT DZIEKANSKI DEATH CONNECTION

THE ROBERT DZIEKANSKI DEATH CONNECTION

 

Surely it would be common sense for the Commissioner of the RCMP

to know better than to do what he did here.

To then defend his actions in this manner is disgusting.

His actions presented a conflict of interest for the RCMP's criminal investigation

and then later for any internal RCMP investigation of these four members.
