We have been asked for a simple method of determining if the aircraft that you are boarding has these modifications.
In order for the aircraft to receive and send signals which allow for remote operation, the aircraft must have a KU band antenna. The KU band is in the microwave frequency and is primarily used for satellite communications. When used on aircraft, it allows for in-flight entertainment and internet communication.
Below we encircled the KU band antenna on several aircraft. The jet at the very bottom, the one looking into the cockpit windows, has no KU band antenna and is what we recommend for your safety.
If you are traveling by commercial airlines, we suggest you ask the airlines if your flight contains the KU Band antenna. If enough passengers make their concerns known to the airlines, we believe the airlines will eventually remove the technology that takes away control of the aircraft from the pilot.
The technologies we have been reporting which allow the aircraft to be remotely piloted and in the case of sabotage—vaporized—are:
On 1 January 2007 Adam Air 574 was ‘vaporized’ in Indonesia in a manner exactly like McConnell's warning.
On 13 February 2007, McConnell sent a personal letter to FBI Director Mueller repeating the alert. He received no reply from the director and a few months later on 5 May 2007, Kenya Airways (B737) was ‘vaporized’ in a manner consistent with his warning.
So far the following aircraft have been ‘vaporized’
- Korean 007
- Adam Air 574
- Kenya 507
- Colgan 3407
- Air France 447
Able Danger calls on the the airline industry to ground all of the modified planes and strip out the illegal modifications before the industries fiduciaries can guarantee the safety of the crews and the passengers.
