Location of Debris Field

Because of the manner in which the debris was scattered on the ocean bottom, it is impossible to identify a specific location of the initial impact of Swissair Flight 111. Below are the four coordinates of the corners of a 500 metre square box that is estimated to contain the initial impact point.

The coordinates are as follows:

Northwest corner - 63deg 58.6134' W, 44deg 24.6973' N,

Northeast corner - 63deg 58.2366' W, 44deg 24.6906' N,

Southwest corner - 63deg 58.6088' W, 44deg 24.4173' N,

Southeast corner - 63deg 58.2321' W, 44deg 24.4205' N.
