#2262: Marine Links Serco's Black-Hand Ground-Staff Drones To ATR Flame-Out Crash

Plum City - ( United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco's global deployment of Black-Hand* ground staff for the remote-piloting of droned passenger aircraft to the "flame-out" announced by the late pilot of TransAsia GE235 – the apparent victim of a hack of the EEC (Engine Electronic Control) on his ATR 72-600 aircraft.

Black Hand* – Lloyd's Register of captains or journeymen with "Privy Seal Licenses to Kill, Burn, Bribe" for the City of London's Honourable Artillery Company 1537; Master Mariners and Air Pilots (formerly GAPAN) 1929, and The Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts 1638 – whose alumni include U.S. Presidents James Monroe, Chester Alan Arthur, Calvin Coolidge and John F. Kennedy and – perhaps – Barack 'Down Low' Obama.

McConnell alleges that in 1962, the late pedophile Lord Privy Seal and then commander of the Honourable Artillery Company, Lt. Col. Edward Heath, outsourced the U.K.'s 4-minute warning system, the NPL cesium clock and Telstar timing to Serco whose Lloyd's Register of Black Hand actors can now spot, shoot, snuff, spin and spoil drone operations in the United Kingdom and United States to within 1 μs of each other (previous efforts were only accurate to 2,000 μs).

McConnell claims that Nicholas Soames – the brother of Serco CEO Rupert Soames and former U.K. Minister of Defense – used ground staff to pilot drones to enforce no-fly zones in Iraq and conceal the production of live-broadcast snuff films financed through UN Oil-For-Food revenues paid into Serco's shareholder accounts with AXA (BNP Paribas) and JPMorgan in New York.

McConnell claims that Soames outsourced the operation of Black Hand drones to a Serco joint venture with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) while Serco's National Visa Center agents set up a ground-staff drone network at FAA Contract Towers for the al-Qaeda sleeper cells in America.

McConnell claims that Serco – the Black Hand navigator for U.S. Air Force Space Command and the world's biggest air traffic controller – stood the Air Force down for 30 hours of "Blue Air" time on 9/11 while using IAI drones and presidential ground staff to pilot the "first live-broadcast mass snuff film in human history."

McConnell claims Serco used its Black Hand ground staff at former RAF Oakhanger to hack the EEC of pilot Liao Chien-tsu's ATR 72-600 aircraft and synchronize the subsequent droned flight with images of the crash recorded by a dashcam on a car on a bridge over the Keelung River.

McConnell invites rebuttal of his allegation that Serco's Black-Hand ground staff hacked the Electronic Engine Controls of TransAsia's ATR aircraft, tricked the pilot into announcing a "flame-out" and synchronized a droned crash with snuff-film images from a dashcam.

TransAsia GE235: Taiwan crash plane 'lost engine power'
Thomas Wang from Taiwan's Aviation Safety Council said the problem with the plane's left engine was detected 37 seconds into the flight
Black box data from the TransAsia Airlines turbo-prop plane that crashed in Taiwan has revealed that power was cut to both engines, investigators say.
Taiwan's Aviation Safety Council said the engines failed to produce enough thrust for two minutes after take-off.
Data suggest that the flight crew tried to stop and restart one of the engines, without success.
Flight GE235 carried 58 passengers and crew, at least 35 of whom died when the plane crashed into a river.
Fifteen people survived the crash.
According to investigators at a briefing in Taipei, the plane ran into trouble just 37 seconds after taking off from Taipei's Songshan airport.

Thomas Wang, director of the Aviation Safety Council, said the pilot announced a "flame-out", which can occur when the fuel supply to the engine is interrupted or when there is faulty combustion.
However, Mr Wang said there was in fact no flame-out, and the right-hand engine had actually shifted into idle mode without the oil pressure having changed.
"The plane flashed a flame-out signal for one of the two engines at 10:53:28 when the plane climbed to an altitude of 1,200ft, triggering a warning," AFP news agency quoted Mr Wang as saying.
"Then the other [left] engine was shut down manually. The pilot tried to restart the engines but to no avail.
"That means that during the flight's final moments, neither engine had any thrust. We heard 'Mayday' at 10:54:35," he added.
The flight, which had been bound for Taiwan's Kinmen Island, crashed into the Keelung River just 72 seconds later.
The plane, an ATR 72-600, is able to fly with just one functioning engine. Mr Wang said it was not clear why the left engine had been shut down.
Thousands of rescue workers have been scouring the river looking for bodies, says the BBC's Cindy Sui
Preliminary findings
A more substantial report into the crash will be released within the next 30 days, ahead of the publication of a final report in the next three to six months.
The pilot, Liao Chien-tsung, has been praised by Taipei's mayor for managing to steer the plane away from apartment blocks and commercial buildings before it came down.
Taiwanese Vice President Wu Den-yih also paid tribute the 42-year-old pilot, saying he had "meticulously grasped" the flight controls in the plane's last few seconds in the air, according to the Associated Press news agency.
"In the final moments he still wanted to control the plane to avoid harming residents in the housing communities," he was quoted as saying.
Aviation authorities have ordered checks on all remaining ATR aircraft being used by Taiwanese companies
Rescue and retrieval teams say poor visibility in the river has hampered the search operation
Crash investigators told Taiwanese media that Mr Liao's hands were still on the plane's controls when his body was found, Reuters reported.
Both the pilot and co-pilot were found dead in the cockpit with their legs badly broken, according to local media reports.
Taiwan's aviation regulator has ordered thorough engine and fuel system checks on the remaining 22 ATR-manufactured aircraft currently in active service on the island.
The BBC's Cindy Sui in Taipei said search and rescue teams had been focussing their efforts downstream of the crash site, and are carrying out operations along a 15-kilometre (9-mile) stretch of the river.
The main parts of the plane, which had been submerged, have been retrieved from the water, and divers are now attempting to locate the bodies of other victims.
Search officials said on Thursday that it was extremely unlikely that any additional survivors would be found, and said that retrieval efforts had been severely hampered by poor visibility in the murky water."
ATR (Aerei da Trasporto Regionale or Avions de transport régional) is a French-Italian aircraft manufacturer headquartered on the grounds of Toulouse Blagnac International Airport in Blagnac, France.[1] It was formed in 1981 by Aérospatiale of France (now Airbus Group) and Aeritalia (now Alenia Aermacchi) of Italy.[2] Its primary products are the ATR 42 and ATR 72 aircraft.
Alenia Aeronautica's manufacturing facilities in Pomigliano d'Arco, near Naples, Italy, produce the aircraft fuselage and tail sections. Aircraft wings are assembled at Sogerma inBordeaux in western France by Airbus France. Final assembly, flight-testing, certification and deliveries are the responsibility of ATR in Toulouse, France.[3]

"The PW150A engines on the Q400 are controlled by FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control), unlike the PW127s in the ATR which are controlled by an EEC (Engine Electronic Control). The FADEC provides automatic engine protection against out-of-tolerance operations, while reducing the number of parameters to be monitored by flight crew. The FADEC also provides semi-automatic engine starting, while also providing engine long-term health monitoring and diagnostics. With the number of external and internal parameters used in the control processes increasing by one order of magnitude, a FADEC engine can deliver better fuel efficiency (relative to identical non-FADEC controlled engine)."
"These two terms are often intermingled and interchanged to the confusion of some.

Basically there are 3 ways the engine is controlled.

1) The very basic, strictly mechanical (cables, rods etc) interface between the throttle and the engines fuel control unit (I'll use the term fuel control unit or FCU as the generic fuel metering device that controls engine thrust and other related functions).

The FCU itself is a very complex hydromechanical RPM governor that utilizes engine RPM, engine pressures and temperatures to control engine thrust to the desired power setting selected by the pilot moving the throttles.

This system has few safeguards to prevent the overtemping or overspeeding of the engine.
Plus, the throttles must be adjusted to compensate for temp, barometric pressure/altitude changes to maintain a constant thrust.

2) Supervisory system controls: The next step up are engines with supervisory control capability (737-300, some 757 & 767's, some A310 & A300-600's). Essentially this system is an upgrade of the basic cable, rods and hydromechanical FCU and puts an electronic engine control in the mix. This engine control will fine tune the engines N1/EPR (though its authority is limited) to a steady thrust during changing conditions (climbs, descents etc). This system offers more exceedence protections and monitors more engine parameters than the basic hydromechanical FCU.

The control box is referred to as the EEC (electronic engine control) by RR and Pratt? And PMC (power managementcomputer (control?) by CFM.

3) FADEC: This system is the latest and most sophisticated. FADEC is essentially engine control via "fly by wire". Their is no mechanical connection between throttle and fuel control. The heart of the FADEC system is the EEC (Pratt) or ECU (engine control unit/General Electric).

Sometimes its best to understand this system in a way you can visualize. Imagine in your living room, the light bulb is the engine and the dimmer switch is the throttle. Moving the throttle forward is equivalent to turning the dimmer switch toward brighter. The difference being is with FADEC the dimmer switch goes to the ECU/PMC and they act as the middleman with lots of inputs to control the engine with far greater precision than old basic system or the supervisory system. This system has protections to guard against overboosting or overtemping (during start on some aircraft). But the main protection is the precise manner in which the engine is controlled and monitored by the EEC (PW) or ECU (GE)."

"Military pushes for killer drones
LOD, Israel - The Canadian military wants to purchase unmanned aerial vehicles that can attack targets as the U.S. military does now in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan with its hunter/killer Predator drones, a move that has sparked interest from as far off as Israel.
LOD, Israel - The Canadian military wants to purchase unmanned aerial vehicles that can attack targets as the U.S. military does now in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan with its hunter/killer Predator drones, a move that has sparked interest from as far off as Israel.
Project JUSTAS, which could cost as much as $750 million and would give the Canadian military a capability that only a handful of other countries possess, has caused a buzz at Israel Aerospace Industries and its Canadian partner, MacDonald Dettwiler of Richmond, B.C.
The Joint Unmanned Surveillance Target Acquisition System project was outlined in a letters of interest notice published by Public Works Canada this fall. The LOI sought feedback by early this month on "this forthcoming requirement ... to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, target acquisition and all-weather precision strike capabilities in support of Canadian Forces operations worldwide."
Lt.-Col. Alex Tupper, director of air requirements for UAVs in Ottawa, said that the LOI was something like "a market survey ... . Before we go before the government with this project we want a really good idea of what the industry can do about cost, schedules, risk and technical feasibility."
While the offensive-capable drones would not be in service prior to Canada's scheduled withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2011, IAI and MDA received a $100-million contract in August for an undisclosed number of Heron surveillance drones to provide intelligence to Canadian combat troops in Afghanistan. The aircraft weighs about 1,000 kilograms and can fly for about 40 hours at an altitude of 10,000 metres.
The contract followed publication of the report by former deputy prime minister John Manley which recommended that Canada withdraw its troops from Afghanistan if serious shortcomings in aerial reconnaissance were not urgently addressed.
"From micro UAVs to strategic and tactical UAVs, we don't leave any niche open," said Shmuel Falik, IAI's marketing manager, before conducting a tour of a hangar at Ben Gurion Airport, where toylike UAVs weighing only a few kilograms were parked beside others that were bigger than a Cessna. "We are looking to take care of all Canada's needs, international and domestic."
If the Canadian government approves Project JUSTAS, IAI and MDA hope to sell Canada the much larger Heron TP, a 4,650-kilogram drone with the same wingspan as a Boeing 737 and powered by a Canadian-built Pratt & Whitney turbo prop engine. The Heron TP can carry a 1,000-kilogram payload and stay aloft for 36 hours at an altitude of about 15,000 metres. As well as possessing a lethal strike capability, the aircraft could be used in a pure surveillance role over battlefields and for long-range Arctic and maritime patrols.
The Israeli and Canadian partners hope that their current Heron contract will help them to get a foot in the door before Canada formally seeks bids for an even more capable multi-purpose drone next year.
contract gives us is a lot of experience with UAVs, with the concept, the supply chain, the logistics, support," said David Hargreaves, vice-president of integrated information solutions for MDA, which is providing technical support for the drones that are being leased. "It fits with other things that we do such as radars, satellites and reconnaissance."
The main rivals for the JUSTAS contract are expected to be California-based General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, which makes the Predator, and another Israeli company, Elbit Systems.
However, Tupper said the air force expected other bidders, too, adding that "in our minds there is no front-runner whatsoever." Falik of IAI, said: "At the tactical level you have a lot of competitors because the entry ticket is a lot lower than for the strategic level. When you get to the strategic level there aren't many companies with viable solutions."
Training on the Herons that Canada leased for Afghanistan was conducted with Israeli experts and MDA technicians at CFB Suffield, Alta., and has involved troops slated to deploy to Kandahar early next year. "From all reports that I have received from a wide variety of sources, we're satisfied that the objectives have been met," Tupper said of the Herons' performance so far.
MDA is to send a team of Canadian technicians to Afghanistan to maintain the Herons. Missions will be pre-programmed by air force personnel who will then monitor the flights from computer consoles on the ground.
Missions can be changed by sending data to the UAV's on-board computers if, for example, troops as far away as 200 kilometres from technicians on the ground have something that they want looked at.

  1. Man, you guys are on the ball. Thanks a bunch for the info.

    Mainstream reports of this ill-fated TransAsia plane suddenly having major malfunctions in both engines just minutes after take-off seemed awfully suspicious to me. I figured there had to be foul play involved somewhere.
