SR MD11 In Detail

Sat Jul 22, 2000 1:08 am

Does someone (I hope "hb-iqa") know specific details or stories of specific Swissair MD11's ??
For example: HB-IWD had an engine failure at LAX.

I need this infos because I love the SR MD11; and because I want to create a small book (together with 3 friends) about the Swissair MD11, to be published when they are gone.

Any details (even from the technical aspect) are welcome.

thank you very much
regards Simon

I would check and look at the detailed incident reports. This would only show major accidents, like ones with fatalities, but it has a search engine and is worth a look.

two years ago, on July 18, 1998, I had to take the flight SR 110 from Geneva to JFK, but there was a problem of engine, and we were delayed 8.00. The plane was "Fribourg" but I don't remember myself any more the registration.
I know that after the flight 110 to JFK, the plane was sent back to Zurich to be repaired.
