Atlantic Ocean where plane crashed

In the ocean on the horizon a few miles from here a passenger plane crashed in the night killing all 226 PEOPLE aboard. ( SWISS AIR flight 111 ) SEPT.2, 1998 (smoke and fire in the cockpit wiring in ceiling behind co-pilot)

This was our second visit to this beautiful site.

Eddy and lighthouse

Famous lighthouse is now a post office as tourists come here to see the monument for those who died i n the plane crash and send post cards which have a special stamp on them for PEGGY'S COVE.


A beautiful place.
