#2264: Marine Links Serco Queen's Flight Black-Hand Drones To Northolt Buffett NetJets, United 93

Plum City - (AbelDanger.net): United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco modifications of Queen's Flight aircraft for Black Hand* drone command to the ad hoc waypoints allegedly used by Buffet NetJets ground staff at RAF Northolt to crash United 93.

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; the 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 Serco set up a Black Hand drone navigation service with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and NetJets at RAF Northolt in 1998 while its National Visa Center agents set up a ground-staff drone network at FAA Contract Towers for Bin Laden sleeper cells in America.

McConnell claims that Serco CEO Rupert Soames's brother Nicholas Soames, the former U.K. Minister of Defense, used RAF Northolt ground staff to pilot the drones which enforced no-fly zones in Iraq and back-haul images for 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 Serco – the Black Hand navigator for U.S. Air Force Space Command – stood the Air Force down for 30 hours of "Blue Air" time on 9/11 while its Northolt ground staff and aviation engineers used NetJets and IAI drones to pilot the “first live-broadcast mass snuff film in human history.”

McConnell alleges that Serco aviation engineers at RAF Northolt extorted or blackmailed Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh – the former Grand Master of the Honourable Company of Air Pilots – into merging The Queen's Flight and 32 Squadron RAF into a Black Hand drone command and authorizing the use of a Buffett NetJets aircraft to track, drone and crash United 93 on 9/11.

McConnell alleges that Serco aviation engineers provided an "expert witness" storyline for the Wag the Dog movie "United 93" where filming took place on a 20-year-old reclaimed Boeing 757 at Pinewood Studios near RAF Northolt to shield actors from Abel Danger investigators.

McConnell invites rebuttal of his allegation that Serco aviation engineers modified Queen's Flight aircraft for use in Black Hand drone command out of RAF Northolt and relayed ad hoc waypoints via one of Buffet NetJets aircraft into the United 93 autopilot for the crash of 9/11.

"United 93 is a 2006 drama film written, co-produced, and directed by Paul Greengrass that chronicles events aboard United Airlines Flight 93,[3] which was hijacked during the September 11 attacks of 2001. The film attempts to recount with as much veracity as possible (there is a disclaimer that some imagination had to be used) and in real time (from the flight's takeoff) what has come to be known in the United States as an iconic moment. According to the filmmakers, the film was made with the cooperation of all of the passengers' families.[4]


Filming took place on a 20-year-old reclaimed Boeing 757, formerly operated by MyTravel Airways, at Pinewood Studios near London from October until December 2005. The cockpit was built by Flightdeck solutions. The location was chosen both for its financial incentives and to shield actors from unwanted public scrutiny they might have received in the U.S.[8] Action was filmed with handheld cameras, chosen for their versatility on the close-quarter sets and to create a sense of immediacy. Exterior airport sequences were shot on location at Newark Liberty International Airport, while interiors were shot back in England at London Stansted Airport. A few scenes were also shot in Washington, D.C. and Boston. In addition, an opening sequence set in Afghanistan was shot in Morocco, but it was cut from the film before release.[9]""


"Located in Bellevue, Nebraska AFB. Offut is part of some interesting angles of the September 11th attack. By coincidence, some WTC executes "evacuated" to Offutt Air Force Base just prior to September 11 event: "On the morning of September 11, (CEO) Tatlock herself had just arrived with a small group of business leaders at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha for a charity event hosted by Warren Buffett. She then heard the news of the first plane hitting the World Trade Center's north tower. "There on the screen, I saw the second plane crash into my office," Tatlock recalled. ...so the supposed event these business leaders were attending, at an Air Force base of all places, was a "charity" event organized by Warren Buffet of "The terrorists are coming, the terrorists are coming" fame. Tatlock is a high CEO in the Franklin Funds group, a group that had offices in the World Trade Center. The cover story in this article for her presence at Offutt was a charity event."

"NetJets, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, offers fractional ownership and rental of private business jets.[1] Formerly called Executive Jet Aviation, NetJets Inc. was founded in 1964. It was the first private business jet charter and aircraft management company in the world. NetJets sells part ownership or shares (called fractional ownership) in aircraft, this gives the fractional owner a share in the use of the aircraft.


NetJets sells fractions of specific aircraft, chosen from several available types at the time of purchase. Owners then have guaranteed access (50–400 hours annually, depending on share size) to that aircraft with as little as four hours’ notice. If the owner's aircraft is unavailable for some reason, another aircraft of the same type, or a larger aircraft, will be provided. Fractional owners pay a monthly maintenance fee and an "occupied" hourly operating fee. The latter is charged only when an owner or guest is on board, not when the aircraft is flying to a pick up point, or flying to another location after completing a flight.

For companies or individuals that require less than the minimum 50 flight hours and the five-year commitment of fractional ownership, they can buy flight hours in 25-hour increments.
NetJets' fleet is the largest private jet fleet in the world with more than 650 aircraft worldwide."

"Originally formed in 1916 as part of the Royal Flying Corps, the squadron saw action during the First and Second World Wars with fighter aircraft, but was disbanded in 1969. The Metropolitan Communications Squadron, involved in the VIP transport role, was renamed as No. 32 Squadron at that time. In 1995, the squadron was merged with the Queen's Flight and incorporated 'The Royal' title into its name. At this time the squadron moved from RAF Benson to RAF Northolt, where it remains.

The merger ended the RAF's provision of dedicated VIP transport aircraft; the aircraft of 32 Squadron are available to VIP passengers only if not needed for military operations. Three flights within the squadron operate the British Aerospace 146AgustaWestland AW109 and British Aerospace 125."

"RAF Northolt mulls plan to boost bizav activity
 - January 8, 2008, 11:13 AM
Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) is considering plans to allow 30- or 40 percent more business aviation traffic at the Royal Air Force’s London-area Northolt base. At the same time, newly formed Northolt Business Aviation is preparing to offer unused air force hangar space to corporate operators.

The MoD is now contemplating an application to increase annual civil movements permitted at the airfield from 7,000 to 9,000 or 10,000. The basis for the increase, which has been requested by civil operators and service companies active at the airfield, is that the number of military movements at the site has declined since 10 years ago, when the current limit was set. The airport is located just 12 mi west of London, about three miles north of Heathrow Airport and close to the M25 beltway.

Local politicians and residents have been steadfastly opposed to increased civil traffic at Northolt. This opposition is being countered by the argument that modern business aircraft are significantly quieter than the military transports that have used the airfield.

Rising demand for RAF Northolt as an alternative business aviation gateway to the UK capital cannot be met by current limits, with controllers having to ration slots so as not to exceed the 7,000-movement annual quota. Operators have complained that this rationing is handled in a somewhat irrational, bureaucratic way, rather than acknowledging that business aviation traffic tends to be lighter in the vacation months of July and August and allowing the movements to be spread more evenly over the busier months. At press time the annual slots quota for 2002 had been almost exhausted, forcing some operators to use alternatives such as Farnborough.

The RAF station commander at Northolt is actively encouraged by the MoD to generate commercial revenue from the base by using "irreducible spare capacity." Crucially, he cannot increase the deployment of RAF personnel specifically to provide for civil operations. With the number of military operations progressively decreasing, this spare capacity is necessarily increasing. That said, with a possible war with Iraq looming it remains to be seen whether this might delay any plans to allow a larger civil aviation presence at the strategically located airfield.

Meanwhile, the aforementioned Northolt Business Aviation, established two years ago by Peter Riley, former director of flight operations for UK media group Granada, has leased Northolt’s Hangar 311 from the UK government's Defence Estates agency and has signed a deal that enables NetJets Europe to use the building as its forward operating base. As of early last month, the fractional provider has been operating some of its 38-aircraft fleet out of Northolt to take advantage of its proximity to central London. By July, the NetJets Europe fleet is set to rise to 60 aircraft.


Riley, a former RAF fighter pilot, told AIN that the NetJets activity should not constrain other business aviation flying at Northolt because the aircraft will rotate through the airfield as necessary, rather than being permanently based there. In fact, the total number of NetJets movements in and out of Northolt should probably decrease because the operator has previously had to resort to a lot of positioning flights to and from other London-area airports. By being nominally based at Northolt, it will benefit from preferential access to weekend slots and to the more economical civil aircraft fuel supply provided by Air BP.

NetJets is establishing its own JAR 145 maintenance operation at the base to support its own aircraft. Its overall European operation will continue to be managed from its headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Granada flight department had itself been based at Northolt until it was mothballed six months ago. The company is now trying to sell its 1987 Hawker 800.

Maintenance for other based and transient civil aircraft is available from Serco, which is bidding to provide support for the NetJets operations at Northolt. The JAR 145-certified operation already provides support for the two BAE 146s and six Hawkers operated by the Royal Air Force to transport members of Britain's royal family, as well as government ministers and officials. This operation falls under the auspices of the RAF's No. 32 (The Royal) Squadron, which was formed from the 1997 amalgamation of the Queen's Flight (then based at RAF Benson) and 32 Squadron’s government flight department.


The MoD is planning to build a new hangar next to the Northolt operations building, which doubles as a terminal for business aviation. The new building would mainly house The Royal Squadron’s aircraft, but will offer additional capacity for corporate operators.

Separately, the RAF is evaluating possible replacement aircraft for the 146s and Hawkers. Options being considered include the Gulfstream V and Bombardier Global Express, both of which could provide significantly greater range than is possible with the existing fleet.

Ground handling for business aircraft is provided by Northolt Handling, a joint venture between Regional Airports (owner of London-area Biggin Hill and Southend Airports) and Serco under a four-year license that started in July 2001. It will provide handling for the NetJets aircraft and already provides other visiting operators with ad hoc covered aircraft parking in Northolt's Hangars 5 and 6.

Slots at Northolt are available strictly by prior arrangement, with the official deadline for requests being 3:30 p.m. on the preceding day. In some instances, Northolt Handling is able to secure slots on somewhat shorter notice since it works with the RAF controllers on flight planning for civil movements.

Northolt Handling manager Robert Walters told AIN that the average number of movements each day is around 30, a number that peaked as high as 50 during busy periods last year. The FBO now has almost 150 regular customers.

The airfield’s official opening hours for civil flights are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays. Based operators can sometimes get permission for flights outside these hours and on weekends, provided the airfield is open for military operations at the time. When a slot is not available, Northolt Handling tries to redirect flights to its sister airports at Biggin Hill (12 mi southeast of London) and Southend (37 mi to the east and open 24/7).

Northolt's main runway is 5,525 ft long, which allows larger business jets such as the Falcon 900 to take off fully loaded. Larger aircraft such as the Boeing Business Jet can also use the airfield, but are limited by pavement-strength issues to around a dozen movements per year.

Landing fees go directly to the RAF and are among the most costly in the London area. A GIV operator, for example, would pay around £1,100 ($1,700). RAF Northolt currently collects almost $2 million in civil landing fees annually and is ranked as one of Britain’s most commercially viable air force bases.

Handling fees are charged in the following four mtow categories: £90 ($140) for up to 10 metric tons (22,046 lb); £120 ($186) for between 10 and 20 metric tons (up to 44,092 lb); £150 ($233) for between 20 and 40 metric tons (up to 88,184 lb); and £180 ($279) for aircraft over 40 metric tons. The Northolt landing fee covers use of a ground power unit and lavatory service for the aircraft. The handling fee covers all other ground services.

Northolt Handling currently has three staff members besides Walters, and it is about to add another. Supplementary baggage handling can be provided by RAF personnel during busy periods.
In addition to Serco, which now manages the RAF's visiting aircraft servicing operation, line maintenance and repairs can be conducted by Jet Aviation, which dispatches mechanics from its Biggin Hill operation.

Visiting aircraft generally have to purchase fuel from RAF supplies at somewhat elevated prices. For based aircraft, and by special arrangement, fuel can be supplied by Air BP."

26 January 2012

The Royal Air Force and Naval Air Command have awarded service group Serco contracts worth £130 million.
The Multi-Activity Contracts (MACs) are for a range of operational support, engineering and training services.

Serco successfully rebid its RAF Northolt MAC to provide aviation and engineering facilities and logistics support. Included is maintenance and associated support for the 32 (The Royal) Squadron, as well as at various satellite stations in and around London.

The three-year Northolt MAC starts in April 2012 and has options to extend for a further four years. Total value if extended would be around £70 million.

Also successfully rebid is the contract for aviation and engineering facilities and aircraft support at Royal Navy Air Stations Yeovilton and Culdrose. The contract "complements our maintenance and support services currently provided under a separate contract to the Merlin helicopter fleet at RNAS Culdrose", Serco said in a written statement.

The three-year Yeovilton and Culdrose contract also starts in April, with a possible two-year extension. Total value over five years would be around £40 million.

Last November, Serco won a new MAC for RAF Valley on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales, where the Navy and Air Force train jet pilots. RAF Valley is also the headquarters of the military's Search and Rescue Force and the RAF Mountain Rescue Service.

The five-year RAF Valley contract starts in April and has a total value to Serco of over £20 million.

The recent contracts extend Serco's operational support to cover 29 UK military bases, Christopher Hyman, chief executive of Serco Group, said. Services range from aircraft engineering and training programmes, as well as asset and infrastructure management.

"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.


BY THE EDMONTON JOURNALDECEMBER 12, 2008
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.


"What this 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. saya ingin berbagi cerita kepada semua teman-teman bahwa saya yg dulunya orang yg paling tersusah,walaupun mau makan itu pun harus hutang dulu sama tetangga dan syukur kalau ada yg mau kasi,semakin aku berusaha semakin jauh juga pekerjaan dan selama aku ingin berbuat baik kepada orang lain semakin banyak pula yg membenci saya karna saya cuma dianggap rendah sama orang lain karna saya tidak punya apa-apa,dan akhirnya saya berencana untuk pergi mencari dukun yg bisa menembus nomor dan disuatu hari saya bertemu sama orang yg pernah dibantu sama AKY WAHYU dan dia memberikan nomor AKY WAHYU,dia bilan kepada saya kalau AKY WAHYU bisa membantu orang yg lagi kesusahan dan tidak berpikir panjang lebar lagi saya langsun menghubungi AKY WAHYU dan dengan senan hati AKY WAHYU ingin membantu saya,,alhamdulillah saya sudah menang togel yg ke5 kalinya dan rencana saya bersama keluarga ingin membuka usaha dan para teman-teman diluar sana yg ingin seperti saya silahkan hubungi AKY WAHYU di 082 313 669 888 saya sangat bersyukur kepada allah karna melalui bantuan AKY WAHYU dan kini kehidupan saya sudah jauh lebih baik dari sebelumnya,ingat kesempatan tdk akan datan untuk yg kedua kalinya
