McConnell claims HSBC, Allianz and their fellow Serco shareholders funded Serco as operator of the National Visa Center, commander of the Base One war room and the mentor of the Small Business Travel Club (SBTC) through various Black Hand navigation/insurance frauds allegedly associated with the crashes of MH Flight 370, MH Flight 17 and QZ Flight 8501 in 2014.
"UPDATE 2-Allianz says it is lead underwriter for crashed Germanwings Airbus plane Tue Mar 24, 2015 1:44pm EDT (Reuters) - German insurer Allianz confirmed it was the lead insurance underwriter for the Airbus A320 plane which crashed in the French Alps on Tuesday.
All 150 people on board the plane, operated by Lufthansa's Germanwings budget airline, were feared dead.
"We are ready to support our client as fully and quickly as possible, working in conjunction with our co-insurers," Allianz said in a statement.
Planes are normally insured by a consortium of underwriters who share the risk.
AIG AIG.N was another of the underwriters, insurance industry sources said.
JLT and Willis were joint brokers for the insurance placement, two separate industry sources added. The plane had an insured loss of $6-$7 million, they said. (Reporting by Carolyn Cohn, Jonathan Gould and Richa Naidu, editing by Sinead Cruise and Simon Jessop)"
"UPDATE 2-Allianz lead reinsurer to missing AirAsia plane Mon Dec 29, 2014 8:58am EST
* Third major aviation accident for Allianz in 2014
* Allianz also insurer for lost Malaysia Airlines planes
* Allianz declines to give estimates of possible liabilities
* Minimum liability seen at around $100 mln (Adds broker, analyst comment)

HONG KONG/FRANKFURT, Dec 29 (Reuters) - Allianz SE could be exposed to claims of at least $100 million linked to the AirAsia jet missing off the Indonesian coast with 162 people on board, which would be the third major airline accident it has been exposed to this year.
Allianz said on Monday it was lead reinsurer on the flight, having previously been the main reinsurer to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 which disappeared over the Indian Ocean in March, as well as to flight MH17, shot down in July while flying over Ukraine.Black Hand* – HSBC's drug and arms-cache navigators with a Serco "License to Track, Film and Kill" for the City of London's Honourable Artillery Company 1537; Master Mariners and Air Pilots (formerly GAPAN) 1929, and 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 'Choom Gang' Obama.
McConnell believes that Serco shareholders, including Allianz, HSBC and HMG funds, equipped Black Hand navigators with the keys to the Base One Technologies' war room in the Bronx for their apparent use in knocking out the Pentagon's U.S. Navy Command Center on 9/11 and subsequent control of the world's aviation industry through threats, extortion and insurance frauds.

"Germanwings plane black box found as mystery surrounds Alps crash
No immediate indication as to cause of flight 4U9525 crash in which all 150 people, including two babies and school party, were killed
Rescue teams scour the Germanwings crash site in the French Alps
Kim Willsher in Paris
Tuesday 24 March 2015 19.45 GMTLast modified on Tuesday 24 March 201521.08 GMT French air investigators are urgently examining a black box cockpit voice recorder (CVR) from a Germanwings Airbus A-320 to try to solve the mystery of why the aircraft crashed into a mountain in the southern Alps, killing all 150 people on board.
Investigators are puzzled as to why the crew did not send out a mayday or distress signal as flight U49525 rapidly lost altitude for eight minutes, or why the pilot did not change course to avoid smashing into a rocky ravine at around 430mph (700kmh).
In the last 10 minutes of the flight there was total radio silence from the crew of the Barcelona–Düsseldorf flight operated by Lufthansa's low-cost subsidiary.
Tuesday's crash happened around 11am local time in calm weather. Unverified information from plane-tracking websites appeared to rule out an explosion or a mid-air stall, both of which would cause a much faster descent. Experts said planes such as the Airbus would be able to glide for some distance in the case of total engine failure.
David Learmount, the operations and safety editor of Flightglobal, said on Twitter: "German-operated A320s do not crash in the cruise. Not these days. This one is weird."
The French prime minister, Manuel Valls, said a helicopter crew had landed near the crash site and found no survivors. Aerial photos showed the plane was, in the words of one official, "pulverised". The largest piece of wreckage was little more than the size of a small car.
As the CVR was being analysed, Pierre-Henri Brandet, a spokesman for the French interior ministry in Seyne-les-Alpes, said the search for bodies and a second black box on the isolated, rocky site had been called off for the evening and would resume at dawn.
Live Germanwings search and recovery at crash site suspended overnight – live updates Debris is located as French prime minister, Manuel Valls, says he fears up to 150 people have been killed Among the dead passengers were two babies, and 16 German school pupils returning from an exchange trip to Spain with their two teachers.
Christophe Castaner, a Socialist party MP, was one of the first to fly over the barren high altitude crash site and described a scene of horror.
"It's a sharp ridge and steep slope that is difficult to access. We have seen the catastrophe and terrible things. It was clear the victims were there in the midst of the destroyed aircraft.
"We saw women, men, children, and babies. Yes, we saw babies," the visibly shocked Castaner told journalists.
Jean-Louis Bietrix, a mountain guide who accompanied the first emergency services up the mountain, said there was nothing left of the plane.
“There’s debris, but you have to look closely to see things. It's like the plane has totally disappeared," he said.
The German foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, said the crash site was "a picture of horror. The grief of the families and friends is immeasurable. We must now stand together. We are united in our great grief."
The crash site can only be accessed after a three-hour walk from the nearest road.
It is the worst air accident in France since 345 people were killed when a Turkish Airlines DC10 crashed near Paris in 1974. In 2000 an Air France Concorde crashed shortly after takeoff from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris in July 2000, killing all 100 German passengers, nine crew and four people on the ground.
Valls said "no hypothesis" could be ruled out about the cause of the tragedy.
Bernard Cazeneuve, the interior minister, said the black box had been sent to the Bureau d’Enquêtes et d'Analyses (BEA), the French air accident investigation authority, for "immediate examination".
He added that the crash zone had been secured and that a criminal investigation team would arrive to collect evidence on Wednesday.
The dead, including two pilots and four cabin crew, are believed to include 45 Spanish and 67 German nationals. The French president, François Hollande, also spoke of a Turkish national among the victims. Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, who plans to travel to the crash site on Wednesday, said the crash had plunged Germany, France and Spain into "deep mourning".
One witness, Sebastien Giroux, said he saw the plane flying very low in the southern Alps near Digne-les-Bains, near where it crashed.
"There was no smoke or particular sound or sign of anything wrong, but at the altitude it was flying it was clearly not going to make it over the mountains," he told BFM-TV. "I didn't see anything wrong with the plane, but it was too low."
The plane had taken off from Barcelona at 10.01am local time. It was just under halfway through its journey to Düsseldorf, where it had been expected to land at 11.55am, when it began to lose altitude.
The French aviation regulatory authority (DGAC) said the aircraft did not issue a distress call, as initially reported, but that its sudden drop in altitude had led air traffic controllers to implement the "distress phase". This is the third and most serious of three alerts used to help identify and coordinate rescue efforts when a plane is thought to be in difficulty.
Thomas Winkelmann, chief executive of Germanwings, told a press conference: “At 10.35am the plane had reached 38,000 feet, but after 10 minutes it was in downfall and was losing altitude. That lasted eight minutes. The contact with the aircraft with French radar was lost at 10.53am at which point the plane was around 6,000ft. The plane then crashed."
Thomas Winkelmann, Germanwings chief executive, on the plane’s final descent Afterwards, there was conflicting information over the timings. The flight tracking website FlightRadar24 claimed the plane started dropping at 10.31am, fell 31,000ft in nine minutes and vanished off the radar at 10.40am.
Aviation experts questioned Winkelmann's suggestion the plane had stalled, saying that, while its descent was rapid, the crew appeared to have some control until shortly before the crash.
Rescue helicopters located the wreckage soon afterwards in the grey, stony cleft of a mountain range high in the southern French Alps, between Digne-les-Bains and Barcelonnette.
Hundreds of gendarmes, firefighters and emergency search and rescue teams, as well as 10 helicopters and a military aircraft, were dispatched to the crash site. The French government set up an emergency centre.
Pierre Polizzi, the owner of a campsite near where the plane crashed, said he heard the plane making strange noises shortly before it disappeared.
"I heard a series of loud noises in the air. There are often fighter jets flying over, so I thought it sounded just like that. I looked outside, but I couldn't see any fighter planes," Polizzi told the Associated Press. “The noise I heard was long, like eight seconds, as if the plane was going more slowly than military plane speed. There was another long noise after about 30 seconds."
Polizzi said the plane crashed around 3-11 miles (5-8km) north of his camp. "It's going to be very difficult to get there. The mountain is snowy and very hostile."
Hollande said: "I would like to send all our solidarity to the family of the victims."
He said he was in regular communication with Merkel and King Felipe VI of Spain, who was visiting the Elysée Palace in Paris at the time of the crash, but cut short his state visit after the news broke.
"It's a new air tragedy; we must know all the causes. We are in mourning because this accident happened on our territory,” Hollande said.
The Airbus A-320-211 named "Mannheim" with the registration D-AIPX, was at the end of its commercial flying life, according to La Provence newspaper. Its first flight was on 29 November 1990 and it had been flown commercially by Lufthansa/Germanwings since 1991.
The Germanwings chief said: “The last checkup for the plane was in March at Düsseldorf by our technical teams. The last major checkup laid down by Airbus procedure was in summer 2013."
He said the captain of the plane had more than 10 years' experience with Lufthansa and Germanwings, and 6,000 hours of flight on the Airbus. A spokesperson for the British prime minister, David Cameron, said: “He has been informed of this tragic news of the aircraft that has been lost over southern France and he would wish to express how his thoughts are very much with the families and friends of all of those who were on that flight. “If there is any assistance or role that UK air accident investigators can play in response to this then of course the French and German forces will have our full support and engagement on that.""

"Lockheed Martin Awarded $292 Million Contract to Provide Support for Pentagon Networks Company to support network infrastructure for the Information Technology Agency
ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pentagon's network infrastructure will continue to receive top tier operations and maintenance support now with an award of a $292.7 million contract to Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) by the U.S. Army Information Technology Agency (ITA).
Lockheed Martin will continue to provide network operations maintenance, management, and security support for all data networks within the Pentagon and the National Capital Region. The program provides constant, round-the-clock support through the Network Infrastructure Service Center.
"We're thrilled to continue to support the critical mission of the Pentagon by ensuring top quality, secure networks," said Ron Stefano, Vice President for Information Systems & Global Service-Defense. "It is truly a testament to the solid partnership our team has with our military customer. Their mission is our mission, and we are proud to support them."
In 2000, Lockheed Martin won a 10- year contract with the U.S. Army to serve as the Pentagon's Information Technology provider under the Information Technology Agency (ITA) contract. During this period a massive Pentagon renovation effort was under way, and Lockheed Martin was responsible for providing the IT infrastructure and network management from the customers wall plate all the way out to the networks.
On March 1, 2009, the Army awarded a sole source six month contract to Lockheed Martin to bridge the gap between the previous and current contracts, consolidating two separate existing contracts at the Pentagon - the Network Infrastructure Services Operation (NISO) and the Pentagon Primary Technical Control Facility contracts.
The program recently achieved International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 20000 certification for the ITA Enterprise Transport Management program, providing the customer with the satisfaction and advantage of a third party verification that Lockheed Martin uses the best IT practices in the world to support their mission.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation reported 2008 sales of $42.7 billion.

"Opened in 1994 as the successor to the Transitional Immigrant Visa Processing Center in Rosslyn, Va., the NVC centralizes all immigrant visa preprocessing and appointment scheduling for overseas posts. The NVC collects paperwork and fees before forwarding a case, ready for adjudication, to the responsible post.
The center also handles immigrant and fiancé visa petitions, and while it does not adjudicate visa applications, it provides technical assistance and support to visa-adjudicating consular officials overseas.
Only two Foreign Service officers, the director and deputy director, work at the center, along with just five Civil Service employees. They work with almost 500 contract employees doing preprocessing of visas, making the center one of the largest employers in the Portsmouth area.
The contractor, Serco, Inc., has worked with the NVC since its inception and with the Department for almost 18 years.
The NVC houses more than 2.6 million immigrant visa files, receives almost two million pieces of mail per year and received more than half a million petitions from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) in 2011. Its file rooms' high-density shelves are stacked floor-to-ceiling with files, each a collection of someone's hopes and dreams and each requiring proper handling. ….
The NVC also preprocesses the chief of mission (COM) application required for the filing of a petition for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV).
