The speed issue has been posted on P4T for well over a year in the form of
an affidavit I filed with New York District Court Southern Division in opposition
to the motion to dismiss filed by several companies to Morgan’s Qui Tam Complaint.
I don’t think I ever looked to see what the responses were.
I have attached that affidavit to this post.
The only reason I addressed the parts issue yesterday was to show the impossibility
of 2 Boeing 757’s and 2 Boeing 767’s crashing into the ground or a building without leaving
one single identifiable (by documented parts number) piece of aircraft.
I believe that there were 6 or 7 pieces of wreckage at the sites but these pieces of wreckage
were apparently traced to the American Airlines B-757 Cali, Columbia crash in 1996.
If we had a single part number and we had access to Boeings computer all we would have to
do would be to type in that number and it would give us the serial number and type of aircraft
Into which it was installed. These records are also maintained by the airline that operates that
One issue I have mentioned but not formally addressed is “the envelope”. When a commercial
airline flight is ready for pushback and the door is ready to be closed, the chief flight attendant
goes into the cockpit and the captain or first officer hands her ‘the envelope’. The envelope contains
the passenger count, the weight and balance computations, the fuel on board, fuel required, flight plan
and the captains signature verifying that he has checked all of these and the airplane is ready for flight.
If for some reason that airplane crashes the first thing the NTSB wants to see is ‘the envelope’
in order to start the investigation. That envelope is retrieved from the airlines station agent or
other responsible party. The very first thing that is checked is how many S.O.B.’s or “Souls
on Board” there where so that family notification can take plane. Sometimes the actual names
of the passengers are in the envelope, sometimes not. It depends on the company’s policy.
But what is absolutely is required is the number, including crew on board.
I have never heard this issue addressed for 911. I have heard that the security cameras at
the security check points show this or that. When in fact all they need to do is get the number
of passengers off of the envelope and compare it with the passenger check in data.
And to my knowledge the ‘envelope’ issue has not been addressed by anybody.
