The clandestine arts; Australian style

The quote below was cribbed from the unspeakable web site: Frank Arouet – “Also, reading between creampuff lines points me to certain lawyer with past history with ‘firies’ and credit cards. Townsville refueller’s mates daughters uncle, reports someone has some sworn written dynamite to chuck around with this one too.” A while back now, the […]

Welcome to our New Website … It’s complete! 🙂  and more blog posts to come! … Please feel free to comment and share… We note the unspeakable Pprune web site continues it’s mindless descent into becoming a bland, politically correct, edited, moderated and censored mouthpiece for the ‘vested interest’ society.  At least on the Australian […]

Quote: Sunny: Net result of CASA corruption and incompetence will be higher insurance premiums for Australian registered aircraft compared to other developed countries. Which supports the BRB hypothesis that M&M & co seek to decimate the GA industry in this country… On a slightly different tack I noticed some interesting obs by Dougy in his […]

It’s way too early for technical theory and chest beating hypotheses; but a little operational ‘savvy’ may provide the first clues.   Finally, I found a soupcon of calm, professional analysis on Pprune. BG 47 – “If you look at the flight route that was posted above, it looks like the crew was attempting to follow the […]

How the game is played

02 Feb

The end game of the Pel-Air debacle is about to played out in the Australian courts today; they provide a demonstrated, documented and examined insight into what can happen in the aftermath of an accident investigation.  The events which have occurred and continue to generate outrage in Australia provide some unpalatable food for thought for […]

A twiddle for discussion

Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.‘ – He may well have been talking about the brouhaha surrounding MH 370.  There are as many persuasive, carefully worked out, ‘supported’ theories floating about in […]
