I have a particular interest in the Bombardier aircraft that came down on Friday 12th February on Buffalo NYC, that is Continental 3407.
I would like a focussed thread to be opened and kept open on this crash & this aircraft since it caused the death of a leading personality in The real 9/11-Truth Movement, as you probably are willing to accept. I believe this crash must, for me personally be in reciept of as much attention as the hijacked 9/11 Aircraft. That's IMHO.
On 3rd March I spoke for ~40 minutes to a former RCF (Royal Canadian Airforce) Pilot from Kamloops B.C., who had some experience of Bombardier (a Canadiancompany). I can't recall if he said he'd flown in a Dash 8 but I suspect that was the Lockheed Hercules.
He was surprised to hear that the stories of Ice-Causing the Crash didn't fit the facts of the High Spec anti-ice features of this particular aircraft.
He said that Bombardier was originally manufacturing in Montreal and they used to build in their early days the 'Skidoo' or 'Snowmobile'; that would be in the mid-1970's.
It seems the NTSB enquiry is veering towards a 'Pilot's Training' angle on this Crash, as the main contributory cause for the Nose Stall. However, that doesn't address our NO-TRANSPODERS, NO-SQUARKS, and NO-TELECOMMS issues. SO all these other factors remaining the same, YOU KNOW I CAN'T accept the official story yet.
Crash Probe Turns to Pilot Training
The Wall Street Journal.
Come on guys, I look up to you Pilot types (pun intended) & I lost someone I had a bunch invested in on this crash and I want to know one way or the other.
What do people know lately regarding Colgan/Continental 3407?
