Home Run and Global Hawk
If the supposed pilots
are impossible or unlikely prospects for flying a Boeing 757 or 767
through sharp turns and complex maneuvers, how COULD those airliners
otherwise have been flown?
In an interview with the
German newspaper Tagesspeigel on January 13, 2002, Andreas von
Buelow, Minister of Technology for the united Germany in the early
1990s, a person who first worked in West Germany's Secretary of Defense
30 years ago, told about a technology by which airliners can be
commanded through remote control.
The former Minister of
Technology said: '"The Americans had developed a method in the 1970s,
whereby they could rescue hijacked planes by intervening into the
Andreas von Buelow said
that this technology was named Home Run.
The German went on to
give his Tagesspeigel interviewer his overall perspective of the
9/11/01 attacks: '"I can state: the planning of the attacks was
technically and organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four
huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them
into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable,
without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry
... I have real difficulties, however, to imagine that all this all
sprang out of the mind of an evil man in his cave"'
devised by the U.S. military for remote control of huge airplanes is
named Global Hawk. On April 24, 2001, four months before "'9/11,'"
Britain's International Television News reported: "A robot plane has
made aviation history by becoming the first unmanned aircraft to fly
across the Pacific Ocean."
Britain's ITN continued:
"The Global Hawk, a jet-powered aircraft with a wingspan equivalent to a
Boeing 737, flew from Edwards Air Force Base in California and landed
late on Monday at the Royal Australian Air Force base at Edinburgh, in
South Australia state... It flies along a pre-programmed flight path, but
a pilot monitors the aircraft during its flight via a sensor suite which
provides infra-red and visual images."
According to the
Australian Global Hawk manager Rod Smith: '"The aircraft essentially
flies itself, right from takeoff, right through to landing, and even
taxiing off the runway."'
Now, who or what would
you trust for aerial missions as demanding as those of "'9/11'" (or
trust to fly an airliner from one airfield in California to another in
Australia): The Arab students who are described above, or the Global
Hawk or Home Run technologies?
