Yet another passenger jet goes down as predicted



– Cover up has started already – Here we go folks – the incredulous stories about what happened have started to flow. We said immediately this happened there would be cover up and it’s in full swing already it seems. – Read this great article from a fellow blogger.

The current official line is that one pilot locked the other out and decided to crash the plane. Isn’t it funny how pilots have all become suicidal all of a sudden. They used the same ruse for the MA370 cover up. I wonder how many times they can get away with that before the public realise it is highly unlikely and something must be going on. We need to consider that the suicide scenario by a single pilot is the only one that allows them not to have to admit to both pilots being incapacitated, which is the likely cause of this and possible other similar disasters. If they admit to both pilots passing out then obviously it opens up lines of inquiry that will lead to revelations about Aerotoxic Syndrome at best, or Climate Engineering at worst, so they can’t let that happen. Rather just make up some nonsense. We look forward to hearing the recordings from the flight recorder if they dare release them !

One more point we considered at the start and which thankfully others have also picked up on is that a loud bang was heard, followed by a loud noise that continued for some time. This was reported within hours of the incident and then suddenly it disappeared from the official reporting, probably because it contradicted the story they had to create to divert attention from the fact the aircraft had likely suffered a catastrophic failure mid flight due to an explosion. Read more here.

The most reassuring thing about this entire debacle is the fact that people on the street, even those who have never heard of Climate Engineering, are extremely dubious of the official line on this. We hope this will wake a few minds up to the overall problem we face, that we can no longer trust anything that comes from the authorities; most official information is designed to make us think in certain ways so as to divert our attention from what is really going on.


– Germanwings crew refusing to fly A320sLatest reports in the Independent say that crew were refusing to fly the Germanwings A320s for “personal reasons”. Maybe they know something that is not being discussed publicly. This is actually a very important fact if true – aside the obvious assumption that they know something really serious is going on, nobody would say ‘personal reasons’ when in this type of serious situation unless they were under some kind of gagging order or confidentiality agreement. Maybe this is a clue to one of the greatest mysteries about the entire Climate Engineering phenomena – why won’t pilots speak up about it? Well maybe now we know !

We will be following up on these two points ASAP. Let’s hope this will finally bring this entire issue into the public consciousness once and for all and finally sort the media men from the boys, namely those who seek the truth and those who seek to hide the truth.


 Original Article posted on the day of the crash


Reports are saying that a Germanwings Airbus A320 has crashed near Digny in southern France. The plane, flight 4U 9525, had been en route from Barcelona to Düsseldorf with 142 passengers and six crew on board. The plane issued a distress call at 10:47 (09:47 GMT), according to sources quoted by AFP news agency. We spoke to Airbus UK who had no information on the incident and refused to speculate at this stage.



The image released by Flightradar24 already reveals some very important information. This aircraft descended quite rapidly but not suddenly while crossing a mountain range. We are guessing this would be indicative of a gradual loss of power rather than a sudden catastrophic failure, which might support the 3rd of our theories proposed below, but we don’t know at this stage so will have wait for a response from the AAIB for more information on this. The last recorded altitude was 6000ft and the decent from cruising altitude, probably of around 38,000+ft, occurred over around 100 miles approx.


Why is this relevant to Climate Engineering  ?

Those that follow us will know that Airbus A320 are the primary tool for one of the current Climate Engineering programs, and produce most of the higher altitude cloud types, or cirrus as they like us to think of them. All A320s belonging to the 3 Airline Alliances have been retrofitted with a 3-pipe aerosol delivery system used to spray substances into our skies that turns into cloud-like formations.



This is an Easyjet A320, but the same systems have been fitted to all A320s


The images below are from an identical aircraft to the one that crashed.


When we predicted this some time back, after the MA370 debacle, we stated that the reason that so many of these aircraft are going down might due to the unbalanced loading caused by storing ULD – Unit Load Devices – full of the chemicals used in the cargo holds. It is unclear still how much the pilot knows about what he is carrying. Every pilot receives a load sheet prior to take off that details the weight and distribution of the cargo. On the basis of this sheet the pilot calculates thrust and other variables in the take off and landing procedure.

  1. If the aircraft is being flown on manual  – ie by the pilots – and both pilots succumb to Aerotixic Syndrome this would probably cause the aircraft to crash. There have been countless cases pilots becoming sick, with many having to retire as a result, with this ‘mystery’ condition but we never hear about it in the press of course. Despite the mystery label we think we know exactly what the cause is. This can easily be discounted by the apparent distress call put out shortly before crashing but this is still in dispute. It also seems very suspicious that explosion type noises were heard from witnesses on the ground. Certainly if one of the containers, which are likely presurised, exploded, not only would decompression occur but crew and passengers would be swamped in chemicals likely to make them pass out or even die very quickly. This seems the most likely scenario we think.
  2. If the weight distribution changed significantly during flight without the pilot being aware of this fact, his reaction to the instruments and behaviour of the aircraft during flight would not be accurate. This situation could arise from the release of large amounts of the chemicals, obviously reducing the load at one end of the aircraft. In the case of the Airbus A320 we know this to be the font cargo hold and in the case of Boeings the rear cargo hold.
  3. We have been pondering another possibility for the last couple of years. We know that our air is saturated on most days by tiny polymer plastic fibres, as a result of one of the other 3 main programs (sprayed from Boeings). We also know that assorted other substances from the Airbus programs are also found in very high concentrations at cruising altitudes where they are sprayed. There is the possibility that these substances might be collecting in the engines, or affecting the engines in some way. Obviously the engines draw in air for combustion from the atmosphere so if the air is saturated with plastic or other substances such as Barium or Aluminium compounds this could have a significant detrimental effect on the engines performance, possibly leading to catastrophic failure over time.


This frequency of accidents in passenger aircraft seems to be increasing, which is highly unusual. Then when we consider the very suspicious circumstances of some of the more recent incidents the whole picture starts to look very shady indeed. One thing that links  several of the more suspicious events that have occurred in the last 10 years, namely the complete disappearance events such as MA370 and AF447, is the fact that secret services, MI5/CIA were all over them immediately, presumably so as to prevent any access to the wreckage by reporters. The aircraft that completely disappear are the larger 747s which we know are used to transport the chemicals. Secret services have had no role in that process at all in historical air disasters other than investigating obvious terrorist/explosive events, so this suggests they are trying to hide something… the wreckage of those aircraft.

Obviously we know why – If the wreckage of these aircraft were found we would see remnants of the ULD containers  containing chemicals used to induce cloud cover as part of the 2 primary Climate Engineering programs. There would also be a huge amount of spillage of the chemicals which would leave obvious traces at the crash site.

It will be interesting to see how this develops and to watch the attempts by the various authorities to explain what happened.


So what next?

Sadly we predict we will see more of these types of incidents. Firstly the smaller aircraft used for spraying that carry passengers. It is looking increasingly possible that the pilots may have succumbed to Aerotoxic Syndrome. We wonder how many of these incidents it will take before those in the industry start to speak up publicly about their fears rather than just silently refusing to fly.

We will also likely see more of the Tankers going down too. We think we know why they crash, and it is for very different reasons, but we can’t discuss that yet. We firmly believe those larger aircraft do not have passengers despite having passenger lists associated with them. We proved this when we filmed flights coming in from South Africa, South America and Indonesia that arrived at Heathrow. They sat at the gates and offloaded their cargo of many ULDs, but no passengers disembarked. We filmed this repeatedly last year and will be publishing the footage sometime this year as part of our film. When the next Taker crashes we will no doubt see the usual disappearing act and resulting cover-up theories about the pilot going crazy and hijacking the plane or something equally contrived and ludicrous, and once again the wreckage will never be found as in the AF447 and MA370 events.




We are still working on the section below…

Air crashes since 2000.

Below we have a list of all of the air disasters since 2000 involving Airbus or Boeing aircraft. It is cited by many that Climate Engineering programs got underway seriously in about 1997, which fits with observations and reports of the new cloud types from around Europe, if not the rest of the globe.

We will analyse the date – taken from Wikipedia – very soon. Our focus is really on Airbus and Boeing large passenger jets. We are interested in the increasing frequency of ‘unexplained’ crashes and particularly ones involving ‘unfound’ wreckage. Obviously these phenomena would appear to back up our claims that a huge cover up is occurring, so if we find a pattern that they are increasing in prevalence then this might be useful to us.

Certainly MA370 was the most unbelievable scenario to us and smacked of a cover up from day 1. It is technically completely impossible to lose an aircraft with today’s satellite tracking systems and on board broadcast systems. Obviously the press don’t tell you that. Add to this mix the fact that UK and US secret services were heavily involved with the MA370 debacle, and had apparently – though we admit this is hearsay – instructed Inmarsat not to release any data relating to the incident unless it had been cleared by them first.

There have been 238 incidents since the year 2000. We have deleted all but the large passenger jets from Airbus and Boeing and highlighted in red the ones that have broken up or disappeared mid flight. We have ignored the various flights from 9/11 for obvious reasons.

We are also very surprised by the number of TO/L – take off and landing incidents involving these aircraft. As we stated earlier if we are correct that ULD containers are being transported or used for in-flight spraying by these aircraft then it is possible that pilots are receiving incorrect data on load weight and distribution which might affect their calculations and ability to control the aircraft properly on TO/L.

We are currently looking at the patterns in this data and will update very soon. If you know of any analysis of this type that may help us please email us or use our secure contact form.
