Swissair SR111 Crash: Supplimentary Web Site.

(Last update: 2020-September-21, 21:35)

This site is dedicated to the memory of the 229 people who lost their lives on September 3, 1998, in the crash of Swissair flight 111.

This site was off-line from May 23 of 2005 until February 1st, 2006, due to a server configuration error. \ My deepest apologies to all who use it regularly for reference purposes. \ This was an entirely unintentional error, and the server is now back on-line and has been checked for consistency and updated as much as possible. \ There are a very few images that are still missing and no longer available (I searched everywhere for them, without success), \ and many of the "useful links" have now expired, but judging by the number of hits that this site still gets, \ many people find it very useful still today, even 22 years later.
