The communities of Peggys Cove and Blandford were central to the recovery operation following the crash of Swissair Flight 111. The Whalesback and Bayswater Beach sites were chosen for their proximity to those communities and because they have view lines to the crash site and each other.

The three sites combined — Whalesback, Bayswater and the actual crash site — make a triangular shape, which is reflected in the design of the memorials. Bayswater Beach is at the western tip of the triangle. As you stand at the monument, facing the ocean, the line on your left is a sight line to Whalesback. The line on your right leads to the crash site which lies on the horizon.

The remains of the passengers and crew are buried at this site. At the request of family and community members, the quiet, modest memorials are consistent with the coastal environment.
