Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Air France Flight 1611 was a Sud Aviation SE-210 Caravelle III en route from the island of Corsica to Nice, France on 11 September 1968 when it crashed into the Mediterranean Sea off Nice, killing all 95 on board. According to the official report, the crash was non-survivable. Among the dead was French general Ren Cogny. The probable cause was attributed to a fire which originated in the rear of the cabin. A radio programme broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on 26 November 2007 advanced the theory that the accident was the result of a missile strike or bomb, and that the true cause has been suppressed by the French Government under secrecy laws.show more
