McConnell claims Serco launched its OOOI hacking program through FAA Contract Towers in 1994 and is now able to simulate any kind of equipment or human failure between takeoff and landing of targeted aircraft and thereby extort control over carriers’ airways or protection money (SBA) from terrified manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier and Sukhoi.

“Just what happened on flight UA201 before it was forced into emergency landing in the middle of the Pacific? United faces claims passengers reported strange 'smell' BEFORE Boeing 777 took off and cockpit later filled with smoke as radar failed
Flight UA201 from Honolulu to Guam set down on remote island of Midway due to 'mechanical problem'
Island is a barely populated wildlife refuge Terrified passengers prayed for their lives Say a 'chemical or electrical odor' was noticeable before take off Smell then became worse
Announcement was made three hours into the flight they were making an emergency diversion

PUBLISHED: 02:44 GMT, 13 July 2014 | UPDATED: 06:58 GMT, 13 July 2014 Passengers aboard the United Airlines flight that was forced to make an emergency landing on one of the most remote islands in the world after an 'electrical odor' was detected in the cabin say there were problems with the aircraft before takeoff.
The pilot also made an announcement that 'there was smoke in the cockpit and the radar failed', it has been claimed.
Flight UA201 - a Boeing 777 carrying 335 passengers and 12 crews from Honolulu to Guam - was forced to set down on Midway Island, a tiny 2.4-square-mile atoll in the Pacific, on Friday.
A 'mechanical error' has been blamed for the diversion, which occurred about three hours into the flight, United spokeswoman Mary Clark told The MailOnline, however the aircraft was delayed on the tarmac before leaving Hawaii on Thursday, as airport maintenance crews reportedly worked to fix an undisclosed issue.
Passengers were told of an unidentified odor in the cockpit before the flight and some even got off, according to at least two on board.
According to Karen Von-Merveldt Guevara of Sedona, Arizona, the pilot spoke of smoke and failure to the radar and other systems during the complications.
At one point the plane is also believed to have dipped dramatically.
'The captain said there was smoke in the cockpit and the radar failed and other electronic systems were failing, so they had to land,' she told CNN.
'At one point there was one drop of about 40 feet.
'After that turbulence, it got really silent. I thought everybody was praying, and we were coming in on the wings of faith. We were all praying.'
Von-Merveldt said she, like many people, were asleep when the problems started to obviously become serious, and she awoke to hear a flight attendant having a nervous conversation with another passenger.
'When more people woke up, they made an announcement,' Von-Merveldt. 'I could understand they didn't want mutiny. First we thought it was of a storm hitting Guam.
'Then the smell got worse in the cabin, and I started to gag because of the smell of chemicals. The attendants were busy.
'In between they would communicate saying they were busy in the cockpit trying to figure things out.'
Von-Merveldt said she now believes the plane should never have left Honolulu, because they was clearly uncertainty.
'They told us they had a problem with a smell on the cockpit.
Passenger Teresita Smith, who was also traveling with several family members on the flight, told reporters a burning smell filled the aircraft.
The passengers were so terrified many were loudly praying.
'It was terribly frightening. There was no doubt, 100 per cent emotion, of the feeling that the plane was going to go down,' she told KITV.
Midway Island - an atoll 1,300 miles northwest of Honolulu - was used by the Navy as a base during the Cold War but abandoned in 1996.
It's now a national wildlife refuge, home to more than one million seabirds, green sea turtles and endangered Hawaiian monk seals.
The island's residents manage the airstrip and wildlife refuge.
They opened an old gymnasium for the passengers of UA201.
Inside, passengers sat on folding chairs and rested on the floor.
As it was the middle of the night - or early Friday morning local time - shops were opened and the passengers were given food.
After a few hours of waiting, a new flight, UA2105, flew the passengers to Guam, where they landed Saturday about 6pm local time, Clark said.
'We’re currently reviewing the mechanical issue and circumstances surrounding the diversion of flight 201 and will not be able to provide additional details until our review is complete,' Clark said.”
“Quoting justloveplanes (Reply 139): They progressively lost radar, satcom, radio comms and "other" systems (unspecified). They dumped 95 tons of fuel (which sounds high to me..., but that's what he said he heard).That's exactly what you'd expect with a failure of the equipment cooling system. One of the first things to go in the past was the colors on the displays -- hence the lost radar comment. In higher temperature areas at low pressure differential altitudes everything heats up quicker.”

“System and method of providing OOOI times of an aircraft
US 6154636 A
A method for determining the Out, Off, On, and In (OOOI) times for commercial air transport aircraft, based on parametric data routinely sampled and presented in a multiplexed data stream to the Flight Data Recorder. In a preferred embodiment, this method is used in conjunction with a system capable of recording, analyzing, and automatically forwarding recorded flight data. "Out" means out of the gate, "Off" means off the ground, "On" means on the ground, and "In" means in at the gate. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), brake pressure, magnetic heading, ground speed, flight number and flight leg, engine start/stop, and air/ground switch are currently available parameters that are sampled and presented to the Flight Data Recorder in a multiplexed data stream. These parameters are used by this method in various combinations to determine the OOOI times for a given flight. "Out" and "Off" times can be determined through analysis of these parameters and downloaded immediately after takeoff over a RF Link to a ground station. "On" time can likewise be determined through analysis of these parameters and downloaded immediately after landing over a RF Link to a ground station. "In" time can be determined from analysis of these parameters and downloaded while the aircraft is parked at the gate. These parameters can also be recorded and forwarded at the end of the flight to an analysis station where the OOOI times are subsequently computed on a different computing platform.”
“FAA Air Traffic Control contract Serco has been awarded a contract to support the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Contract Tower Program. Under this contract, Serco will provide air traffic control services at 64 sites in the United States and Pacific region. The contract is valued at approximately US$170m over 5 years. Since 1994, Serco has managed approximately 55 towers. Through this contract win, Serco will now be responsible for a total of 64 sites spread across the western United States and Alaska, including new locations in Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. Serco will provide air traffic control services in these towers to support the safety of incoming/outgoing aircraft, improve the efficiency of air traffic and provide information and support to the pilots.”
