Swissair Flight 111

Breaking News re- Flight Swissair Flight 111 - " incendiary device may have been planted "

Edmonton Journal - Sept 15 , 2011

More than a decade after Swissair Flight 111 crashed into the waters off Peggy’s Cove, N.S., new questions have surfaced over what actually caused the plane to go down and how the investigation was conducted.

Tom Juby, a veteran RCMP forensic investigator assigned to the probe, said he uncovered evidence early on that suggested an incendiary device may have been planted on the plane but that he was prevented by his superiors from following up fully on the evidence and was even directed to alter his notes.

After trying for the past several years to get senior RCMP officials to re-examine the case, he said he decided to go public.

“My opinion is it was extremely suspicious and we should’ve continued testing,” Juby, now retired, said Wednesday in a phone interview. “I was shut down.”

Juby is scheduled to appear Friday in a documentary about the Swissair crash on the CBC’s The Fifth Estate.
