Heat damage may have been
cause of Swissair plane crash
HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) -
Investigators have detected signs of heat dam-
age on fragments of Swissair Flight 1 l's cock-
pit, evidence that could help determine why
smoke billowed around the pilots before the jet-
Vic Gerden, the chief crash investigator, said
yesterday that signs of heat stress have been
found so far only on wreckage from the cockpit,
not from the passenger cabin.
"There are some signs of heating on some of
the small pieces of the wreckage retrieved,"
Gerden said at a news conference. "The limited
amount of wreckage retrieved to date indicates
this area of heat stress is in the cockpit"
He refused to speculate on the extent of the
damage or the exact cause of it.
Gerden also expressed hopes of gaining valu-
able data from the plane's recovered flight-data
recorder, even though it stopped working during
the final six minutes before the plane crashed
into the Atlantic off Nova Scotia on Sept. 2,
killing all 229 people on board.
Flight 111 crashed more than an hour after
taking off from New York, bound for Geneva.
"The most crucial area is not the last six min-
utes, as some may think, but prior to those six
minutes," Gerden said.
The recorder, retrieved by divers 190 feet
underwater, might show how systems aboard
the plane failed between the pilots' initial dis-
tress call 16 minutes before the crash and when
the machine shut off, he said.
Investigators hope to get further information
from the plane's cockpit-voice recorder, which
is still on the sea bottom. A signal from that
recorder has been detected, but bad weather yes-
terday forced a one-day halt in diving opera-
The divers are expected to return to work
today, supported by a new arrival from the
United States - the Navy salvage and rescue
ship USS Grapple.
The Grapple helped with the undersea recov-
ery of wreckage of TWA Flight 800 off Long
Island in 1996. It has a team of more than 30
divers on board, as well as equipment for lifting
large wreckage from the seabed.
Divers are trying to confirm if three large
pieces of wreckage found near the flight data
recorder are sections of the plane's fuselage.
Also on hand is a 16-member U.S. Navy team
from Panama City, Fla., which has brought
advanced sonar and imaging equipment to pro-
vide greater detail of the ocean floor.
Gerden, a senior investigator with Canada's
Transportation Safety Board, also released a
more complete version of the last conversation
between the Swissair pilots and an air traffic
control tower in Moncton, New Brunswick.
Expanding on excerpts released earlier, the
transcript showed that the pilots reported putting
their oxygen masks on and later telling the con-
trollers they would have to fly the plane manu-
ally instead of by autopilot.
Gerden reiterated that he saw nothing in the
conversation to suggest unwise decisions or
"The crew conversation was done in a profes-
sional manner throughout." he said, stressing
that it would be premature to pass judgment
until after all evidence was examined, including
the cockpit voice recorder.
Some lawyers and relatives of victims have
suggested that the Swissair pilot, Urs
Zimmermann, should have made a direct,
though risky, descent to the Halifax airport after
reporting smoke, instead of making turns in
order to lose altitude and dump fuel.
In Zurich, Switzerland, Swissair's chief pilot-
designate, Rainer Hiltebrand, rejected those
suggestions as irresponsible.
Meanwhile, forensics experts continued the
gruesome task of identifying human remains.
They identified a second victim on yesterday,
said Dr. John Butt, Nova Scotia's chief medical
examiner. He declined to give further details
until the family was notified.
He said remains are so fragmented that DNA
technology will be the main avenue for identifi-
cation. Samples from the body parts are being
sent to police laboratories across Canada, where
the DNA will be matched with samples provid-
ed by victims' families.
Jeff Modler, a DNA specialist from the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police, said the pace of the
salvage operation is important because DNA
becomes more difficult to analyze the longer a
corpse is underwater.
A grieving relative of a passenger killed in the crash of Swissair Flight 111 wipes away tears during a
visit to the water's edge in Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia on Monday. All of Swissair Flight ill's
passengers and crew were lost when the jetliner plunged into the sea near the Novia Scotia coast.
