“Russian plane crash: data shows ‘final moments’ of doomed airliner as Metrojet says ‘impact on plane’ caused disaster – latest news
Victims’ bodies flown back to Russia to be identified by family members as plane’s black boxes to be analysed after being recovered from Sinai peninsula
There has been growing speculation in the Russian media that flight 7K9268 may have been destroyed by an on-board explosion.
Vladimir Putin called for an objective investigation into the disaster. “Without any doubt everything should be done so that an objective picture of what happened is created, so that we know what happened,” he added. “This work should be continued until we are fully sure that this stage is complete,” he said.
The Egyptian government also pushed back on assertions by Metrojet that their Airbus A321 did not suffer a technical fault and was instead brought down by an “external impact”.
US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he could not rule out involvement of Isil in the crash, but said that it was “unlikely”, adding that “We don’t have any direct evidence of any terrorist involvement yet,”
Flight Radar data shows the ‘final moments’ of the doomed airliner
Flight 7K9268 lurched up and down several times in the final moments before it lost contact with the ground, according to data from the Flight Radar 24 tracking site.
The Airbus 321 climbed nearly 3,000 feet in three seconds before falling another 3,000 feet a few seconds later, the altitude data shows. It repeated the abrupt rise and fall a second time before it was lost to radar.
The records from the Sweden-based Flight Radar 24 also show the aircraft rapidly losing speed in its last minute. This data is usually very reliable, but can sometimes be affected by an erroneous message.
Alexander Smirnov, a top official at Metrojet, says its plane dropped 300 kph (186 mph) in speed and 1.5 kilometers (about 5,000 feet) in altitude one minute before it crashed into Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.
The flight was at a cruising speed of just over 407 knots (468 miles per hour) at the beginning of the data set. Thirty seconds later the speed had fallen to just 62 knots (70 miles per hour) – far too slow for a plane that size to remain airborne.
Dr Stephen Wright, who teaches aviation at the University of Leeds, pointed to the possibility of a “wayward act” which may have caused the sudden end of data transmission – and crash.
“Looking at the numbers, it’s confusing to me”, he said. “If there was a catastrophic failure due to a wayward act that would cause significant damage and the aircraft could break up in flight.”
The sudden climb “would suggest it hit really terrible weather, an updraft, clear air turbulence. Those kinds of weather conditions are usually when you are flying over large expanses of water, and particularly tropical water.
“I don’t think that’s possible in that location because it’s over the desert.”
He added that the focus now is on “the information is in the black boxes – those are the items I am interested in now.
“They will be listening to the cockpit recorder for unusual sounds. it records the voices and also the sounds at different locations, and you can triangulate where the sound came from and the type of sound.”
David Cameron on the plane crash
David Cameron, speaking to ITV’s This Morning, said: “Overall air travel is a very safe form of transport. We have a very strong safety culture in terms of airlines. We are obviously looking very careful at what happened on that plane, the tragedy of those more than 220 people who lost their lives.
“I spoke to President Putin yesterday to give our nation’s condolences to the many Russian families that lost loved ones. There’s a meeting taking place right now to find out everything that we know. If there are routes that are unsafe of course we will act but you must act on evidence.”
Mr Cameron was asked: “What if you had a flight booked this afternoon to Sharm el-Sheikh, would you get on that flight?”
The Prime Minister replied: “I would always follow the travel advice and the travel advice is clear for the part of the world. We don’t advise travel to parts of Sinai but actually to Sharm el-Sheikh we haven’t changed the travel advice but if anything changes, we don’t sit around and chew our pens and not act, if anything changes, it will be announced very quickly, but as I say, we must do it on the basis of evidence and not on speculation.”
On the threat of terrorism, Mr Cameron admitted: “This whole area is one of huge concern. Since I’ve been Prime Minister we’ve stopped plots to blow up aeroplanes, before I became Prime Minister, there was that celebrated case of people trying to take bottles of liquid which included explosive material in them to blow up airliners over the Atlantic, so this is an area of concern but we put an enormous effort in to try and crack these plots.
“We have a lot of airline security measures in place, as anyone who travels knows and we keep these things under permanent review, they are difficult decisions, the other day we had to take the decision to change the travel advice for Tunisia, we didn’t do that straight after those terrible attacks in Sousse, again we wanted to look at the evidence and see what it really told us, in the end we thought ‘actually there is too much of a risk,’ so we changed the advice. We look at it very carefully.””
“Unabomber [Fabian] Manifesto
One evening in October of 1992 Michael Hren and I read parts of the Unabomber Manifesto on Dettling’s computer (three years before it was mailed to the New York Times) and discussed it extensively with Dettling. Dettling arrived home while Hren and I were examining the manifesto, just as I had used the search command on the word “kill” [Polygraph] to locate the sentence:
“In order to get our message before the public with some chance of making a lasting impression, we’ve had to kill people.” [Unabomber Manifesto Paragraph p96]
Hren immediately asked Dettling in a booming voice, “Hey Ray who’d you kill”, intending a joke. Michael Hren reluctantly remembers the incident [Voice Call], but clearly recognizes one line [Voice Call] of the Manifesto from that night [Hren’s Statement]. When asked what the document was, Dettling stated that “it was a work of fiction about a serial bomber”. Later during a conversation about the Unabomber in Hren’s presence, he cited four instances of Unabomber bombs, defending each. The first three examples seemed ludicrous to me, particularly the example of the computer store owner and my reaction was sarcastic “Great reason to bomb someone” I commented. I was shocked and vividly remember his apparent glee and approval attached to the bombings. His fourth instance of Unabomber bombings was a timber lobbyist, citing the timber industry actions on Redwoods as a justification. The justification was a continuance of a prior conversation. [Polygraph]. Sacramento timber lobbyist Gil Murray was murdered two years later by a Unabomber bomb. During this incident Dettling had just returned from an evening out, was intoxicated and highly animated. Calls were recorded in Colorado and are legally admissible.
Patents, Unexplained Income, NASA, and G.I. Joe
Patents were used for years for a paper trail cover for “black” operations payments by the CIA to avoid complications with IRS etc. For example…when the IRS asked “Where’d ya get the million bucks?”…. “For Murder” was not an acceptable paper trail for a CIA operative. Over the years they [Serco Gold Command] used Patents instead…until recently, the most confusing and intractable paper source in existence. Dettling’s residence was a palatial multi-million dollar mountaintop complex with 12-foot window panels overlooking Silicon Valley. Dettling drove a rare and expensive car. His closet had over a dozen high quality fur coats as gifts. [Photo] He spent money freely. [Phone Call] But Dettling had no substantial job for many years, and no identifiable source of income other than five US Patents. The Patents trace (via Assignee [Check Clinton and Serco’s patent for US Navy Onion Router transferred to Carly Fiorina’s HP 8(a) Navy Marine Corps Intranet]) to companies involved in supplying the Military, CIA and Intelligence agencies (United Technologies, MB Associates etc. [Mitchel Page Resume] and to NASA (See also: [Plain Dealer]). It is my opinion that Dettling did not have adequate scientific knowledge or abilities to create the concepts described by the Patents. (Patents [3,771,152], see also [3,873,892], 3,979,052, [3,979,052-2], [4,021,267], and NASA Patent [4,146,180]).”
“Kogalymavia Flight 9268 (7K9268/KGL9268[a]) was an international chartered passenger flight, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia (branded as Metrojet), which crashed in northern Sinai on 31 October 2015 at 04:13 UTC (06:13 EST) following departure from Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport, Egypt, en route to Pulkovo Airport, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
The aircraft, an Airbus A321-231, was carrying 217 passengers and seven crew members. Of those mostly tourists aboard, at least 3 were Ukrainian, one Belarusian, and the rest were Russian.
With its death toll of 224 people, the crash of Flight 9268 is the deadliest in Egyptian territory, supassing the crash of Flash Airlines Flight 604 in 2004, and has the highest number of Russian victims in an airliner crash. It is also the deadliest air crash involving an aircraft from the Airbus A320 family, surpassing TAM Airlines Flight 3054 in Brazil, and the deadliest air disaster involving Airbus A321, surpassing Air Blue Flight 202.”
“The Mount Salak Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) crash occurred on 9 May 2012 when an SSJ-100 aircraft crashed on a demonstration flight operating from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia. On 10 May, the wreckage of the Sukhoi Superjet was spotted on a cliff in Mount Salak, a volcano in the province of West Java. Due to the widespread debris field where the aircraft hit the mountain, rescuers concluded that the aircraft directly impacted the rocky side of the mountain and that there was “no chance of survival”. On 12 May 2012, it was reported that the remains of several victims’ bodies had been recovered and airlifted to Halim Airport and then taken to the National Police Hospital for identification.
The final report, released 18 December 2012, indicated that the accident was caused by crew members ignoring terrain warnings that they had incorrectly attributed to a database problem. The crew had turned off the terrain warning system and were unaware that they were operating in close proximity to mountains. The crew, including the captain, were engaging in conversation with potential customers as the aircraft impacted the ground.”
“How well did the 7/7 emergency services respond?
By Dominic Casciani
BBC News home affairs correspondent
3 March 2011
From the section UK
One of the key questions at the heart of the 7 July inquests is whether the emergency services could have responded faster and better.
The London Assembly had already reported that poor communications and a lack of basic medical supplies hampered the rescue operation. So what else has the inquests learned?
The hearings have focused on a number of key areas including:
The ambulance service
The fire fighters
Overall command and control
LONDON AMBULANCE SERVICE
There was a delay of 52 minutes in getting ambulances to Tavistock Square, the scene of the bus attack where 13 people died.
Crews were only sent to the bus attack after reports of a second blast at 1040 – a controlled explosion of a suspicious package.
Jessica Ashford, the first paramedic to reach Tavistock Square, had in fact been despatched to Russell Square. She said the scene was devastating, with parts of bodies strewn across the road. Mrs Ashford alerted control at 0957 BST, performed a quick reconnaissance – and called again at 1005 demanding back-up.
The delays at Tavistock Square followed a separate half-hour delay in sending teams to Russell Square underground station, where 26 people died, the greatest loss of life.
Graeme Baxter was the first paramedic into the tunnel at Edgware Road. He called for eight more ambulances – but also told the inquests that he was frustrated to learn that crews from two stations nearby were not despatched.
Overall, only half of 201 London ambulances which were available on the day were sent to the attack scenes.
Crews who were stationed nearby were held back in case there were more attacks – and some of them were watching the events unfold on television.
At the same time, controllers were struggling to identify free ambulances to ferry the wounded to hospital. They eventually called on neighbouring ambulance services and volunteers to help at the scenes.
Helicopter Emergency Medical Service paramedic Lee Parker wrote in a debrief form that he found these decisions inexplicable.
“Due to the number of casualties involved, we had to utilise various medical staff who ended up creating more work,” he wrote. “They did not understand triage and/or major incident procedures. Other medical staff should be kept as far away as possible from these incidents.”
Jason Killens, deputy director of operations at the London Ambulance Service (LAS), told the inquests that it had been the “right decision on the day” to hold back some crews.
But in the closing days of the inquests, the coroner heard about “organised chaos” and shortcomings at the ambulance service’s disaster control room at Waterloo.
Two people who were designated to crucial roles in the unfolding events were not trained for “Gold Command” events – the procedures used across the emergency services to co-ordinate the massive effort needed in a potential crisis.
Only one member of staff was logging all the emergency calls – and she was not a trained typist capable of doing it at speed. Others were writing down important information on scraps of paper. The employee in charge of the control room’s white board could not reach more than halfway up it.
Staff brought into the disaster control room could not get to work immediately because ambulance service systems did not allow them to be logged into two computers at the same time.
Meanwhile, crews that had been despatched were not getting messages back to controllers because radio channels were blocked.
In other evidence, Coroner Lady Justice Hallett heard that the ambulance service had switched from using pagers to mobiles to transmit alerts.
Keith Grimmett, an officer in the LAS emergency planning unit, argued that pagers were more reliable in a disaster situation. During 7/7, the capital’s mobile network became overloaded with many people finding it impossible to make calls. The service began using pagers again a week after the attacks.
Mr Killens accepted that the government’s review of events was wrong when it had stated that rescue operations had not been hampered by poor communications.
LONDON FIRE BRIGADE
One of the key issues that emerged from evidence relating to firefighters was their own safety rules.
One group of firefighters said they could not enter the tunnel at Aldgate because they had not received official confirmation that the live electric rail had been turned off.
One police officer stood on the rail to prove that it was no longer live – but the crew insisted they still needed word from London Underground managers. Four other firefighters had already gone into the train.
The first crew reached King’s Cross station at 0913 – but did not go to the scene until a second crew arrived at 0942. That was because their communication protocols demanded having a back-up team available.
One police officer reported seeing firefighters waiting on the escalator for colleagues to arrive, as the walking wounded began to emerge from a tunnel.
The inquests heard that over at Edgware Road, Assistant Divisional Officer Alan Davies, then head of Paddington fire station, refused to allow his men into the tunnel because of the possibility of a dirty bomb.
Mr Davies told the inquests that his training had been to expect a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incident and he could not risk flooding the tunnel with personnel until the situation was clearer.
He accepted that evidence showed that police officers and paramedics went into the tunnel before specialist officers had chance to establish whether or not there was a CBRN risk.
Meanwhile, there were also tensions between the services operating amid the chaos at Aldgate.
One paramedic said he encountered hostility from firefighters who did not understand that his role was to assess the situation and report back before doing anything else.
The police had been switching to a new digital communications system – but at the time of the attacks, they still could not use their radios underground.
At one stage, the emergency services were using runners to get information from tunnels to the ticket halls.
In September 2003, London’s emergency services staged a massive training exercise to test their ability to cope with a chemical attack on an underground station. That exercise concluded that none of the radio systems were adequate.
Some of these problems dated back to the horrific King’s Cross fire of 1987.
Sir Desmond Fennell’s report into that disaster made a string of recommendations including ensuring that communications worked underground – and that the emergency services and London Underground workers could all talk to each other on the same system.
But 18 years later, the Tube’s system was still not fully compatible with the three services. The London Underground’s system has been updated since 2005.
A succession of senior figures from across the capital’s emergency services have appeared before Lady Justice Hallett – but on the final day of the inquests, she told them to use plain English, rather than refer to things like the “Conference Demountable Unit from the Management Resource Unit”.
“Management jargon is taking over organisations,” said Lady Justice Hallett. “When it comes to something like a major incident, people do not understand what the other person is.
“All you senior people from these organisations are allowing yourselves to be taken over by management jargon… You people at the top need to say ‘We have to communicate with other people and we communicate with plain English’.”
“I am sorry if that sounded like a rant but everybody who has been here for the last few months will know I have been building up to it.””
“Born in London in 1960, Michel Jacobs was educated in state schools in Barnet and at Wadham College, Oxford, where he gained a First in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. After leaving university he worked as coordinator for Tools for Self Reliance, a charity which refurbishes unwanted hand tools and ships them to artisans and co-operatives in developing countries. In 1984-85 he took a postgraduate diploma in local employment planning at Middlesex Polytechnic and spent the next five years as a community worker and adult educator in Southampton, working with unemployed adults.
From 1985-92 he was also a freelance foreign correspondent on British politics for a number of overseas current affairs magazines, including Australian Society, Economic and Political Weekly(India) and Perception (Canada). … In 1997, just after the formation of the new Labour Government, the UK’s longstanding left of centre think tank and political association. Expanding the Society’s publications, events, membership and media profile, his work there covered the full range of social and political issues. He established a major Commission on Taxation and Citizenship, for which he wrote the report and book, Paying for Progress: A New Politics of Tax for Public Spending (Fabian Society 2000). His other writing at the Fabians included Progressive Globalisation: Towards an International Social Democracy (Fabian Society 2003) and (with Adrian Harvey) the report of the Fabian Commission on The Future of the Monarchy (Fabian Society 2003). During his six years at the Fabians Michael Jacobs became a frequent contributor to the press and broadcast media and a regular public speaker.”

“Fabian Socialist Penetration in Ottawa
16 MondayFeb 2015
Posted by AudacesFortunaJuvat
2015 in A Post in The Featherbed File
At this stage, the reader might begin to wonder how in the world I’ve neglected to mention Pierre Elliott-Trudeau and the clique which surrounds him, including Gérard Pelletier, Jean Chrétien, Jean Marchand, and a few others who were elected on the Liberal Party ticket from 1968 on, but previously were identified in Quebec with Socialist and Marxist groups. I shall have a word to say about them shortly. At least these infiltrators were elected. But how about that coterie of assorted revolutionaries, Soviet agents, former NDP Socialists and Unilateral Disarmers who, although they were never elected, have held and still hold influential positions in the upper civil service, in ambassadorial posts abroad and in top positions of the CBC, the CRTC, the National Film Board, CIDA, etc.? People such as Jean-Louis Gagnon, Al Johnson, Graham Spry, Bob Bryce, Jacques Roy, William (“Bill”) Lee, Hazen Size, Alan Gottlieb, Mark Starowicz, Robert Rabinovitch, Ed Clark, Michael Pitfield, John Grierson, Bernard Ostry, Escott Reid, Chester Ronning, and so many others who were able to worm their way into key positions in the Establishment and to keep these positions even when there was a change of government in Ottawa.
Long before the “Three Wise Men” from Quebec (Trudeau, Pelletier and Marchand) took over the federal Liberal Party in a typical Fabian Socialist coup d’etat, the civil service, the CBC, the National Film Board and other Crown agencies had been deeply penetrated by a group of Fabian Socialists, most of them graduates of the London School of Economics.
The most valuable short work on the deadly subversion of the free society by the Fabian Socialists is Eric Butler’s The Fabian Socialist Contribution to the Communist Advance. This 44-page booklet is listed at the back of this booklet. It’s “essential reading” for all who want to be equipped to really defend freedom.
The famous French writer, Julien Benda, created a sensation in the ’30s when he wrote a book which became a classic: La Trahison des Clercs (The Treason of the Intellectuals). A similar book could be written in the Canadian context, as it has been largely our universities which have produced the leadership of the whole Marxist Conspiracy — both the revolutionary Communist leadership and the elite echelons of the ‘gradualist’ Fabian Socialists.
The Comintern agent O. D. Skelton, to whom we have already referred, had been a professor at Queen’s University in Kingston. Another notorious Comintern agent, Stanley B. Ryerson (alias E. Roger), of the famous early Toronto Ryerson Family, recruited the future leadership of the Quebec Communist apparatus from among his students at Sir George Williams University in Montreal, including Gui Caron, Kent Rowley, Madeleine Parent, Camille Dionne and John Switzman.
However, it was Professor Frank Underhill, tutored by such Fabian masters as Harold Laski and George Bernard Shaw when he was at Balliol College, who later was responsible for hundreds of his pupils being able to infiltrate the civil services of both Ottawa and the provinces. In an article in the Toronto Daily Star of Nov. 27, 1969, referring to the testimonial dinner given old-time Liberal Party advisor Frank Underhill, Peter Newman wrote: “They were all there, the big ‘L’ and small ‘l’ liberals — Lester Pearson, Frank Scott, Eugene Forsey, Bob Bryce, Escott Reid and
Graham Spry among them — all moving out of public life now and watching their ideology being assaulted on the outside by the radical young, and on the inside by the technocrats.”
Further on, in the same article, we read:
While at Balliol himself, from 1911 to 1914, Underhill joined the Fabian Society and came under the influence of Bernard Shaw…
And then the significant revelation:
Underhill drafted the original Regina Manifesto which launched the CCF.
It’s the old familiar story of the Fabian Socialist who works openly in the Socialist camp and then infiltrates the Liberal Party. Most of those mentioned above were in this category, with Bob Bryce being the grey eminence of the federal civil service and Graham Spry acknowledged as the “father” of the CBC.”
“8(a) Business Development Program
The 8(a) Business Development Program assists in the development of small businesses owned and operated by individuals who are socially and economically disadvantaged, such as women and minorities. The following ethnic groups are classified as eligible: Black Americans; Hispanic Americans; Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, or Native Hawaiians); Asian Pacific Americans (persons with origins from Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Japan, China (including Hong Kong), Taiwan, Laos, Cambodia (Kampuchea), Vietnam, Korea, The Philippines, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (Republic of Palau), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Samoa, Macao, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru); Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal). In 2011, the SBA, along with the FBI and the IRS, uncovered a massive scheme to defraud this program. Civilian employees of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, working in concert with an employee of Alaska Native Corporation Eyak Technology LLC allegedly submitted fraudulent bills to the program, totaling over 20 million dollars, and kept the money for their own use. It also alleged that the group planned to steer a further 780 million dollars towards their favored contractor.”
“The Fabian Society founded the London School of Economics and Political Science in 1895 “for the betterment of society,” now one of the leading institutions in the world, an incubator of influential politicians, economists, journalists, prime ministers and liberal billionaires.
Today, the society functions primarily as a think tank and is one of 15 socialist societies affiliated with the Labour Party. Similar societies exist in Australia (the Australian Fabian Society), in Canada (the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation and the now disbanded League for Social Reconstruction), in Sicily (Sicilian Fabian Society) and in New Zealand.”
“[Fabian co-founder] Henry Havelock Ellis, known as Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), was an English physician, writer, Progressive intellectual and social reformer who studied human sexuality. He was co-author of the first medical textbook in English on homosexuality in 1897, and also published works on a variety of sexual practices and inclinations, including transgender psychology. He is credited with introducing the notions of narcissism and autoeroticism, later adopted by psychoanalysis. He served as president of the Galton Institute and, like many intellectuals of his era, supported eugenics. …. Ellis was a supporter of eugenics, in line with many others of that era. He served as vice-president to the Eugenics Education Society and wrote on the subject, among others, in The Task of Social Hygiene:
Eventually, it seems evident, a general system, whether private or public, whereby all personal facts, biological and mental, normal and morbid, are duly and systematically registered, must become inevitable if we are to have a real guide as to those persons who are most fit, or most unfit to carry on the race.
The superficially sympathetic man flings a coin to the beggar; the more deeply sympathetic man builds an almshouse for him so he need no longer beg; but perhaps the most radically sympathetic of all is the man who arranges that the beggar shall not be born.
Ellis resigned from his position of Fellow of the Eugenics Society over their stance on sterilization in January 1931.”
“In 1900 the Society produced Fabianism and the Empire, the first statement of its views on foreign affairs, drafted by Bernard Shaw and incorporating the suggestions of 150 Fabian members. It was directed against the liberal individualism of those such as John Morley and Sir William Harcourt. It claimed that the classical liberal political economy was outdated, and that imperialism was the new stage of the international polity. The question was whether Britain would be the centre of a world empire or whether it would lose its colonies and end up as just two islands in the North Atlantic. It expressed support for Britain in the Boer War because small nations, such as the Boers, were anachronisms in the age of empires. In order to hold onto the Empire, the British needed to fully exploit the trade opportunities secured by war; maintain the British armed forces in a high state of readiness to defend the Empire; the creation of a citizen army to replace the professional army; the Factory Acts would be amended to extend to 21 the age for half-time employment, so that the thirty hours gained would be used in “a combination of physical exercises, technical education, education in civil citizenship…and field training in the use of modern weapons“.
“In the Middle East, the theories of Fabian Society intellectual movement of early-20th-century Britain inspired the Ba’athist vision. The Middle East adaptation of Fabian socialism led the state to control big industry, transport, banks, internal and external trade. The state would direct the course of economic development, with the ultimate aim to provide a guaranteed minimum standard of living for all. Michel Aflaq, widely considered as the founder of the Ba’athist movement, was a Fabian socialist. Aflaq’s ideas, with those of Salah al-Din al-Bitar and Zaki al-Arsuzi, came to fruition in the Arab world in the form of dictatorial regimes in Iraq and Syria. Salāmah Mūsā of Egypt, another prominent champion of Arab Socialism, was a keen adherent of Fabian Society, and a member since 1909.”
