Missing 777 or Flying Bomb?
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
March 13, 2014
The group assigned to discovering the fate of Malaysian Airlines flight 370 has concluded that the flight was hijacked. Our first direction was “crash.” Within minutes of the disappearance, we discovered the plane had been damaged while on the ground in Shanghai.
I can see the plane being crashed into a military facility in the Ukraine, to be blamed on Russia. This is me, not the group. Whatever the scenario and we have run many, the plane is slated, in our estimation, to be used in a terror attack.
Our group includes senior FBI (retired) and airline security personnel, mostly former US Air Force with background in special operations.
We looked at the pilots, found problems there, a tendency to keep the cockpit door open, too much “socializing” with female crew members, things like that.
We then looked at the plane, particularly the aeronautics bay, how many hijackers could hide there.
For those who don’t know, it is a “crew party zone” with heat and air conditioning that runs all the way to the cargo bay.
We were told there was a cargo onboard worth $400m. I list that as unconfirmed.
We then compared how to get in and out of the aeronautics bay. Some planes, you come out in First Class, others open more toward the front than that.
Our first guesses toward range put the plane down in Southeast Asia. Then we looked at the fuel loadout and we ended up with 5 hours of flight time at 550 mph. As our members tend to think of terrorism conventionally, their guess was Somalia.
I will not speculate about passengers.
I was asked to write this because there is speculation that this plane could be used in a terror attack. Israel was mentioned.
I see no reason to assume that.
With today’s revelations from Anonymous Ukraine that the US is actively involved in planning terror attacks against air facilities in the Ukraine and planning to blame it on Russia, having a “flying bomb” with this kind of capability simply disappear is even more suspicious.
For those unware of the hacked emails, this is the text from one of them:
