#2076: Marine Links Serco Boeing Clock to HSBC spot-fix Vigs, Disappearing Navigators Guild

Plum City – (  United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco's use of NPL cesium slave clocks to switch Boeing passenger aircraft between decoy and drone maneuvers during war games to HSBC's apparent payment of spot-fixed vigs to the bookie who disappeared MH Flight 370 during the Cope Tiger exercise in Thailand and allegedly forced the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators to change its name to the Honourable Society of Air Pilots thereby dropping any reference to the trade of the hijackers.

"Wife of MH370 crew member shocked over missing money in bank account PUBLISHED ON AUG 16, 2014 10:46 AM 2820

PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The wife of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 crew member Tan Size Hiang is reeling in shock that money has been siphoned from her husband's bank account.

Elaine Chew, 35, said she could not believe that someone would have the audacity to prey on Tan and three other victims of the flight that went missing with 239 passengers on March 8.

"No one at the bank or the police told me about the theft. I found out from the newspapers," she said. "I then went to the bank to ask but they would not release any information to me because they said it was private and confidential. I don't even know how much was taken."

That was the second time she was turned away. Chew said she contacted the bank after the MH370 tragedy to settle her husband's credit card bills but was denied access to his account.

"I don't know what to say. I can't get into my husband's account but someone else could access it and take the money from him. I'm surprised.

"I want to thank Malaysia Airlines, which has been very concerned about me regarding this issue, especially the human resources department and my caregivers," Chew said.

Money from Tan's bank account was among four that had been siphoned, with the total loss amounting to RM110,643 (S$43,716).

The other accounts belonged to Malaysian Hui Pui Heng, 66, and Chinese nationals Ju Kun, 32, and Tian Jun Wei, 29.

Federal Commercial Crimes Investigation Department director Comm Datuk Mortadza Nazarene said Bukit Aman was hunting for two more suspects, including a Pakistani man, over the siphoning.

A HSBC Bank Malaysia officer and her husband, both 33, have already been arrested. The Pakistani is one Ali Farran in his 30s, while the other suspect is a Malaysian, known only as Raj and believed to be the mastermind.

HSBC communications head Marlene Kaur said the bank discovered the siphoning and lodged a police report.

"HSBC is deeply sorry for the incident and apologises to the families of our customers for the distress this will cause, and assures them there will be no losses on these accounts," she said."

"Guild News for the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators

EDITORIAL. THE HONORARY EDITOR WRITES: There are three important articles in this edition covering two subjects of great importance to the Guild, namely, future airport policy for the UK and eligibility of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) operators for Guild membership on the basis of their UAS experience. I would urge Guild members to read them carefully as both subjects are likely to generate much debate in the months ahead. My thanks go to the authors who have been brave enough to put their heads above the parapet and contribute. I am always happy to accept thought-provoking articles for publication, especially as the October issue is looking a bit thin as I write. ....

The IPM, Learned Clerk and I were honoured to be received by the Grand Master at Buckingham Palace immediately following my becoming Master. His Royal Highness showed great interest in the work of our Guild, as did our Patron when he received the IPM last December to discuss a working-group proposal that we should change our name when seeking a Royal Charter.

Fellow Liverymen, I am delighted to announce this evening that Her Majesty has graciously approved a proposal, made jointly by our Patron and Grand Master, that we should be known as 'The Honourable Company of Air Pilots'.

''We are not alone amongst Livery Companies in having Royal support and patronage, but we are unique in one respect. I cannot improve upon the Grand Master's own words when he explained why our Patron and he had made the proposal.

Referring to the Royal Family, His Royal Highness said: ''We are pilots. The Duke of Edinburgh was the first Royal pilot. I was a professional pilot. Prince William and Prince Harry are professional pilots. It is entirely appropriate.''
