Ocean Search for Air France Jet Continues [Jun 2] http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSTRE5501PB20090602?sp=true The Air France plane flew into turbulent weather four hours after taking off from Rio and 15 minutes later sent an automatic message reporting electrical faults. A lightning strike could be to blame and that several of the mechanisms on the Airbus 330-200, which has a good safety record, had malfunctioned. But aviation experts said lightning strikes on planes were common and could not alone explain a disaster. They also said the plane could have suffered an electrical failure, effectively leaving the pilots "blind" and making the plane vulnerable in an area notorious for bad weather. [and from another] What Happened to Flight 447? [Jun 1] http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE5505BF20090602? Four hours into the flight the plane encountered heavy turbulence. Fifteen minutes later, now a long way out to sea, it transmitted an automated signal indicating the plane was in serious trouble. A succession of a dozen technical messages showed that several electrical systems had broken down, most ominously the pressurization system - a totally unprecedented situation in the plane.
The airliner did not fly into a hurricane, as none was reported, though wind shear can happen unexpectedly. Wind shear on a plane at high altitudes would not likely drive it to the ground or into the water,
nor does wind shear tear off a wing or engine. Airliners anticipate lightning strikes and are guarded against them, such that for several decades no disaster has been caused by lightning strikes alone. What
then caused the loss of the Air France airliner over the Atlantic? The sequence of events is clear. The pilot announced air turbulence. Then 15 minutes later an automatic message from the plane's computer
announced that several electrical systems had failed. Thereafter, no more messages were received, so the pilots were either too busy or unable to transmit. On the face of it, a massive failure in the electrical
systems caused the plane to go down, and prevented a last minute transmission from the pilot as to their likely location. What would cause such a failure?
We have repeatedly warned that electromagnetic disturbances could be anticipated as the charged tail of Planet X turned toward the Earth. There is increasing evidence of this, the latest unmistakable piece of evidence a blast to the Earth's magnetosphere. The number of subatomic particles in the electromagnetic spectrum, as we have noted, is beyond what mankind imagines. When failure happens on the ground, there is an outage. The lights go out, but nothing crashes to the ground. When a massive failure, however temporary, occurs in an airliner time catches up with those affected as the airliner is temporarily out of control, and in turbulent weather this can prove disastrous. Will such failure happen again? We have stressed, repeatedly, that man can expect problems with their satellites and electrical grids due to the charged tail of Planet X wafting increasingly in the direction of Earth. Air France 447 hit a tripple whammy, however, in that it was in a storm and over the Atlantic Rift, which as we have stated is a surface magnet, responsible for the twice-a-day global shudders that appear on the live seismographs.
