Dear Captain Prater:
Re: Unabomb flight box explodes, Adam Air black box expires
It appears that the recovery of the Adam Air KI-574 black boxes, located on January 21st 2007 in water depths of about 2000 meters in the Makassar Straights of Indonesia, has been carefully delayed by more than 30 days.
The staged delay has now allowed the batteries driving the locator signals to expire thereby giving the bogus FAA, Boeing and GE investigation team sent to the scene an excuse not to locate or recover the black boxes from the Adam Air Boeing 737-400 which crashed on New Year's Day.
Genuine investigators have now been denied access to the KI-574 cockpit voice and flight data recorders which might otherwise point to the racketeering use of "Unabomber" flight boxes on illegally-modified Boeing commercial aircraft.
Amongst other frauds, Boeing paid a $615 million fine last year to get the US Department of Justice to drop its investigations into illegal modifications, including the QRS11 missile gyroscopes embedded in the alleged 'Unabomber' flight boxes and incendiaries or explosives concealed in the doors of all of its passenger planes by the 'off-book' racketeering partners of Hillary Clinton and the Rose Law firm of Little Rock, Arkanasas.
We allege KI-574 was destroyed in a 'dead-peasant' life insurance fraud on its crew and passengers by a Rose Law, Axa and CAI-Carlyle Canada private-equity partnership.
To remotely steer and destroy KI-574, Rose, Axa and Carlyle agents would have had to route guidance and ignition commands through the privately-owned Iridium satellite communications systems in the same modus operandi ('M.O.') as used by 'al-Qaeda' or Unabomber air traffic controllers to sabotage Flights 11, 175, 77 and 93 on 9/11.
We assume that the Indonesian Vice President, Jusuf Kalla, was suitably bribed by Carlyle for questioning " .. the need to retrieve the black boxes at all, although experts have since said in response that the accident was of international significance as it could indicate a fault with the aircraft."
We would hate to think that you, Captain Prater, the president of the Air Line Pilots Association, International (ALPA), was being similarly rewarded for doing nothing.
Yours, with ever-diminshing respect,
28 year airline, 22 year military pilot
23,000 hours of safety
Notes: "Unabomber flight box explodes, Adam Air black box expires"
"Black boxes [Adam Air KI-574] On January 21, the flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR), colloquially called black boxes, were located off the coast of West Sulawesi by the US vessel Mary Sears. The flight data recorder is located .. at a depth of 2,000 m, while the cockpit voice recorder is located at ... a depth of 1,900 m. These positions indicate the black boxes are located approximately 1.4 km apart. The Indonesian vessel Fatahillah was reported to be traveling to the location, while Mary Sears traveled to Singapore, arriving on the 29th to return the detector equipment used to locate the devices. It did not travel immediately to Singapore because it was mapping the immediate area. The Mary Sears used its side scan sonar (SSS) unit to map an area of approximately three square nautical miles around the recorders in high resolution, an operation which required 18 passes across the area at approximately 3 knots, taking six hours per pass including lining up for the next pass. The black boxes should be able to help investigators determine how the aircraft went down. A senior Indonesian marine official said he doesn't believe the equipment which is necessary to retrieve the boxes from that depth is available in any Asian country. The black boxes have a battery life of just 30 days, after which they will be unable to emit locator signals. On January 26, a [contrived] dispute arose between Adam Air and the Indonesian government regarding the retrieval of the black boxes. Due to the depth involved, recovery will require an underwater remotely operated vehicle, but due to the cost of using this method of recovery especially since such equipment would require to be shipped in from elsewhere the government placed the responsibility for the cost of recovering the recorders on Adam Air. Vice President Jusuf Kalla went as far as to question the need to retrieve the black boxes at all, although experts have since said in response that the accident was of international significance as it could indicate a fault with the aircraft. Adam Air says that in its opinion, the black boxes should be recovered, describing the accident as being relevant on both national and international levels, but refuses to pay, saying that that is the responsibility of the government. Indonesia has however requested technical assistance from the United States, Japan and France. Talks are ongoing with these countries. Jim Hall, a former chairman of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, has said that it is essential the boxes are recovered quickly, as their 30-day battery life is about to expire. "If you lose the signal, you don't have anything to home in on," he said. "At that depth there will likely be visibility problems, currents can move sediment over the box and pieces of wreckage ... you may not be able to recover it at all... The safety of citizens that fly not just in Indonesia but across the globe depends on finding that black box [Does ALPA concur or even care?]"
