Photo Taken ‘Inside’ Malaysia Flight 370

Weeks have passed and there are still no definite signs of where the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 could be. A joint search and rescue effort which includes a long list of nations, the largest in history. For the first time, we could possibly have what looks to be the first picture taken from a passenger on Malaysia Flight 370.

On Sunday, Fox Weekly received a news tip from an individual who lives in the U.S. The individual stated that he’s an ‘ex-boyfriend’ of one of the passengers who was on the missing Malaysian flight. The man who only wants to be called “Jake”, dated a 28 year old women who were one of the 227 passengers.

Jake lives in Southern California and is 29 years old. Jake is a salesman is currently in school studying business. Jake shared with us his relationship with the missing passenger, when they were dating back in 2011. Jake told us that he didn’t want to send the image directly to the loved ones of the missing passenger, but also didn’t want to have the image stored in his laptop forever.

“I was checking my Yahoo email and my mind told me to check my Gmail account which I haven’t checked in over 6 months, When I started opening my new messages, I saw one sent from a cell phone. When I opened the image, it was from my ex-girlfriend and I quickly remembered that she was one of the people who boarded the missing Malaysian plane”, Jake told Fox Weekly.

We examined the Flight 370 and found that the aircraft is designed with 3-3-3 seating, including screen monitors on the back of every seat. This will lead us to believe that this image is in fact ‘real’. Jake shared with us his Gmail account and even showed us where the email was sent from and that it was sent just off the coast of Malaysia.

If we lean on this image being the first surfacing from a passenger who boarded Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, when was this taken and why was it taken? Analyzing Jake’s Gmail account, the image was sent to Jake on March 9th, 2014 at 4:35 Pacific time. According to Jake, there is no explanation to why his ex-girlfriend would send him a picture of the flight. “We haven’t talked in a while. The last time we chatted was 5 months ago, besides that, she comments & likes my pictures on Facebook and that’s just it”, Jake says.

“It was really weird to see the image on my email from her”, Jake told Fox Weekly staff.

One theory is that the 28 year-old women passenger had seen trouble inside the plane and decided to send images to all her friends and contact on her email account?

4chan users speculate that the image taken could of been a coincidence or was sent accidently to the wrong person.

MH370 was scheduled to route from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport. The plane remains to be found and the date of the disappearance of the flight was March 8th, 2014. Until the discovery that will close this missing flight case, we will continue to look in satellite images and in the sea for the truth. - Fox Weekly

Dead Aliens or Special-Effects?????


Dead Aliens or Special-Effects?

As someone who spends a lot of time digging into stories of the distinctly strange kind, I find myself on the receiving end of a lot of correspondence from people that read my articles and books. Very often, people want to share their stories (or those of families and friends). More often than not, this process opens a lot of doors and offers greater insight into the subject at issue – whether the UFO phenomenon, Cryptozoology, or the field of conspiracy-theorizing. Sometimes, however, I find myself on the receiving end of a very different category of story…
That category is, for me at least, quite possibly the most vexing one of all. The reason being that it is filled with great and intriguing stories, but ones that I have never been able to get to the bottom of, and which languish in a realm that might accurately be titled: “Fascinating But Frustrating.” And, so, I thought I would share with you my personal favorite, one that (A) really caught my attention; (B) has eluded every single attempt to resolve it;  but (C) still make me think there is something to it.
In 1997, the U.S. Air Force published a report that suggested the “alien bodies” seen sprawled around the Foster Ranch, Lincoln County, New Mexico in the summer of 1947 were dummies used in parachute experiments. We are, of course, talking about Roswell. But there is another angle to the “alien dummies” saga.
A decade or so ago I spoke with a guy who claimed his grandfather, from the 1930s to the 1960s, worked in the world of Hollywood – specifically in the field of special-effects and model-making for horror and sci-fi movies. The grandfather also had another string to his bow: namely, a connection to the secret world of government. And that same connection surfaced in an intriguing fashion.
In 1945, the acclaimed film-maker Billy Wilder – who died in 2002 – directed the English language version of a documentary called Death Mills, which was produced by the U.S. Department of War’s Psychological Warfare Department. It was a harrowing, but acclaimed, production that graphically revealed the sheer, horrific extent of the Nazi holocaust of the Second World War.
The Pentagon describes psychological warfare as: “The planned use of propaganda and other psychological actions having the primary purpose of influencing the opinions, emotions, attitudes, and behavior of hostile foreign groups in such a way as to support the achievement of national objectives.”
It transpired that plans were afoot for Wilder to make a similar production for the PWD on the atrocities undertaken by Japan’s Unit 731 during the Second World War. It was, however, a documentary that ultimately did not come to fruition. It transpires that my source’s grandfather worked on Death Mills with Wilder and, as a result, came to know some of the PWD personnel.
Almost certainly as a result of his work alongside the PWD on Death Mills, in 1955 the special-effects expert in question was contacted by psychological warfare planners in the U.S. Air Force and offered a lucrative contract: to use his cinematic skills to create what can best be described as faked alien bodies.
Given the time-frame (namely, the mid-1950s), it would be reasonable to expect that the Air Force would want something to reflect the pop-culture of the day: the bug-eyed aliens of This Island Earth variety; the Krell of Forbidden Planet; or the “Martian mutants” of Invaders from Mars. But not so.
The man was asked to design and create exactly eight “alien bodies.” There was just one proviso: they all had to be very life-like, dwarfish, hairless and topped off with huge heads. Reportedly, so the grandson told me, his grandfather was paid very handsomely for approximately three months of work, all of which was undertaken in a specially modified trio of rooms at a military base “in southern California.”
It doesn’t take a genius to guess that the man asked why on earth the Air Force wanted him to fabricate a number of extraterrestrial corpses. He could understand the military taking an interest – and a very deep interest – in real alien bodies, but faked ones constructed by a Hollywood special-effects expert? What was the point? Well, the point, it seems, was a fascinating one.
“Scuttlebutt” and rumor that reached the man’s attention suggested a fantastic operation was at work. In fact, it was an operation that was two-fold in nature. First, there was a bizarre plan for the military to photograph the “bodies,” strategically laid out on gurneys or slabs, and then have the images sent anonymously to the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
Along with the photos would be a long and winding fabricated letter – one supposedly written by a communist sympathizer in the U.S. military, warning the Soviets that the U.S. Government had got its hands on alien bodies and technology.
In other words, it was a strange example of Cold War-era psychological-warfare proportions, an example designed to scare the hell out of the Russians and have them waste their time chasing down what were really non-existent aliens. There was, however, a second part to the story.
There were suspicions, at the time, that at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio, several employees were selling secrets to the Soviets, particularly secrets born out of the work of Wright-Pat’s Foreign Technology Division (FTD). So, a plan was formulated: carefully expose those same commie-loving characters to a couple of “alien bodies,” strategically placed in a vault or bunker, and have them believe Uncle Sam has recovered a crashed UFO, or several, along with their deceased crews.
Then, it was a case of keeping an eagle-eye on all of those under suspicion and see which of them - if any, of course - might be prompted to do something out of the ordinary, such as make a phone call to a man named Ivan, or meet in a local park with a trench-coat-wearing character with a foreign-looking appearance. It was, then, a program designed to ferret out Soviet sympathizers in the military by exposing them to a huge secret that, in reality, was a huge ruse.
Now, as I said at the beginning, I have been unable to prove any of this (the Billy Wilder/Death Mills/Unit 731 issue aside). But, while it all sounds rather bizarre, if you think about it carefully, it also makes a lot of sense. After all, what better way to mess with the Soviets – and to root out dastardly Reds in the United States – than by (a) dangling a startling carrot of the fabricated kind; and (b) reeling in the enemy without any real secrets ever being compromised?
If true, this saga may help explain some of the controversial stories where military personnel have reportedly been exposed to alleged alien bodies in underground rooms (the Hangar 18 legends), and under “convenient” circumstances that many skeptical researchers think are just to good to be true. They just might be. But not for the reasons that the skeptics think.
Megadeth - Hanger 18
Megadeth – Hanger 18
The reason: the eyewitnesses may have been set-up as a test of their loyalties. It may have been intended all along for them to see the “bodies” (or, more correctly, the dummies). If they kept quiet about what they saw, they were good soldiers and trustworthy. If they told their wives 0or girlfriends, they were potential security risks and perhaps needed to be watched carefully in future. And if they ran to a Soviet handler, it was jail-time.
This, of course, leaves us with a highly thought-provoking question: if the story told above it 100 percent accurate, does that mean all the stories of “alien bodies in the morgue” are born out of this long-gone Cold War operation/deception? Or, does the government have real extraterrestrial corpses on ice, and, if so, is it using the “dummy” angle just to confuse things even more? I wish I knew.
And one final thing for your consideration, something which takes us back to Billy Wilder. In 1970, Wilder’s movie The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes was released. In the movie, the British Government creates a faked Loch Ness Monster to hide the fact that the military is conducting secret submarine tests in the loch. The reason: to keep German spies in the dark regarding what was really afoot.
So, we have one man claiming to have made alien bodies to fool the Soviets and (in a fictional setting) we have a government creating a monster to fool the Germans. There is a Billy Wilder tie to both issues (in the sense that the source of the above-story worked with Wilder, and Wilder himself directed, produced and co-wrote The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes), and both Wilder and the man behind the “alien dummies” ruse worked with the Psychological Warfare Department on Death Mills.
Somewhere, in this convoluted saga, I suspect, there is a big secret just waiting to be uncovered…

The Mysteries of Missing Flight 370???????

Terrorism, Aliens, Vile Vortices: The Mysteries of Missing Flight 370??????? 

Malaysia Airlines B777-200ER

Mysteries love theories. Unknown gaps in data call for speculations. We are seeing it happen this weekend.
Malaysia Airlines MH370, a Boeing 777, has gone missing. Airline officials lost contact with the plane, which was carrying 239 passengers, two hours into the Kuala Lumpur-to-Beijing flight, on Saturday, March 8, at 2:40 a.m. local time (18:40 GMT). It is thought it went missing off the coast of Vietnam, but that is pure speculation.

This photo provided by Laurent Errera taken Dec. 26, 2011, shows the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER that disappeared from air traffic control screens Saturday, taking off from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in France. The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 carrying 239 people lost contact with air traffic control early Saturday morning, March 8, 2014 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, and international aviation authorities still hadn't located the jetliner several hours later.

Who was on board? A delegation of painters and calligraphers, a group of Buddhists returning from a religious gathering in Kuala Lumpur, a three-generation family, nine senior travelers and five toddlers.

Most of the 227 passengers on board missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 were Chinese, according to the airline's flight manifest. The 12 missing crew members on the flight that disappeared early Saturday were Malaysian.

Other passengers were from India, Indonesia, Australia, the United States, France, New Zealand, Ukraine, Canada, Russia and the Netherlands, the airline said.

Keller, Texas native, 50-year-old Philip Wood, was on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 when it disappeared over the Gulf of Thailand in the South China Sea. Philip Wood works as a technical storage executive at IBM Malaysia and was transferred to a job from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, where the flight originated.

A Boeing 777 goes missing on March 7th. 7777.  370-03-07. Is someone playing a numbers twilight game?
Was it terrorism? Two people named on the manifest -- an Austrian and an Italian -- whose passports had been stolen were not aboard the plane. There are questions about a third, Chinese, passport.
Freescale, Motorola, Lear, UFOs

On March 8th, the Austin, Texas-based Freescale Semiconductor confirmed that 20 employees were passengers on Flight 370. Twelve are from Malaysia and eight from China, the company said.
The history of Freescale Semiconductor is intriguing. Freescale was one of the first semiconductor companies in the world, having started as a division of Motorola in Phoenix, Arizona in 1948, according to the company's own historical data. In 1955, a Motorola transistor for car radios was the world’s first commercial high-power transistor. It was also Motorola’s first mass-produced semiconductor device. It was in 2004, a mere decade ago, when it became autonomous by the divestiture of the Semiconductor Products Sector of Motorola.
Motorola? 1948 for this division? In Phoenix? Who came up with the name Motorola? It turns out most credit for the name is given to William "Bill" Lear, in 1930, the investor/inventor who would go on to produce such items as the 8-track music cartridge and the Lear Jet. Perhaps it is only a coincidence that the mystery of UFOs date to such events as Roswell in 1947, in nearby New Mexico. 
Some folks take the notion of "Reverse-Engineering Roswell UFO Technology" very seriously. In that paper, computer company chief Jack Shulman argues that the transistor could never have been invented so suddenly at AT&T in late 1947 without input from top secret Government projects, that some have identified to him as being from alien spacecraft.
And then there is Bill Lear's son, John, who is an accomplished pilot, former CIA operative, and Ufologist. He is noted in the latter field for promoting a variety of conspiracy theories which are based, he claims, on information obtained from military contacts.
Lear is a controversial figure in Ufology, to say the least, for many of his statements.
Lear believes that any number of flying discs 'fell' into our hands when they crashed in the southwest in the late 1940's and early 50's.
Lear's scenario also includes the suspicion that the government has made secret deals with the 'aliens', actually exchanging humans for advanced technological data. Source.
Will we be hearing that aliens are behind the disappearance of Flight 370?
Ooops. I guess some sites are already writing about this form of speculation.

Missing Planes and Sanderson's Vile Vortices

Did Flight 370 vanish off Vietnam into a Devil's Triangle-like area, like the one found off Japan? Who knows, but this is not an area recognized in Fortean literature for such disappearances. Indeed, examining Ivan T. Sanderson's traditional map of "Vile Vortices" around the globe does not show one in this location.
But an airliner is missing, and answers are wanting about what happened.

Other Mysteries
As the search for the aircraft continues, the rescuers are bumping into other mysteries. Take this Sunday, March 9th, CNN report:
'Strange object' not debris from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 
The mysteries surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, and the true identities of some of its passengers, are as deep as the South China Sea waters where a multinational search team is searching for the jet.
One promising lead has turned out to be a dead end. A "strange object" spotted by a Singaporean search plane late Sunday afternoon is not debris from the missing jetliner, a U.S. official familiar with the issue told CNN on Sunday.
A U.S. reconnaissance plane "thought it saw something like debris but it was a false alarm," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

If all those on board Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are found to have died, it will rank as the deadliest airline disaster since November 12, 2001, when American Airlines Flight 587 crashed into a New York neighborhood, killing all 260 people on board and five more on the ground. Many recall that crash with horror, as it followed so closely after the events of 9/11 in New York City.
