Ugh ... this is 100% FALSE. STOP REPEATING THIS LIE AND THROWING THE GOOD PILOTS OF SWISS AIR 111 UNDER THE BUS !!!!

Page 257, paragraph 5 of "Other Findings" of the Swiss Air 111 Accident Investigation Report, Canadian Transportation Safety Board ... https://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/rappor...3/a98h0003.pdf

"From any point along the Swissair Flight 111 flight path after the initial odour in the cockpit, the time required to complete an approach and landing to the Halifax International Airport would have exceeded the time available before the fire-related conditions in the aircraft cockpit would have precluded a safe landing."

The investigators said a safe landing was impossible, why are you telling this lie?
