Hi John,

I can provide some information about this case, another one of
many J. Maussan hoaxes. The Aeromexico DC9 flight 129 from
Guadalajara to Mexico's City Intl. Airport that supposedly had a
collision with a UFO when approaching runway 05 right at
Mexico's Intl. Airport on july 1994.

I know personally the "eyewitness" Enrique Kolbeck, an Air
Traffic Controller, very close to Jaime Maussan because he is
the one who always has been invited to join the "team" of
"eyewitnesses" at all UFO conventions that Maussan has organized
since 1997.

Kolbeck was present at the Disclosure Project's May 9, 2001
National Press Club Conference. He testified as a "eyewitness"
and exposed the DC9 collision - he was not the pilot - and said
that there was a damage to the right main landing gear. That of
course, is a _big_lie_. Kolbeck is a Radar Route Controller and not
a Radar Terminal Controller where the alleged "crash" happened.

I can tell you, later, the whole story of Kolbeck's false

I invite you to visit the 1994 UFO crash investigation at:


Its in Spanish.

You can see the video of Kolbeck's "testimony" at:


The strange thing about this 'eyewitness' is that he is an Area
Route Controller, he has never been a Terminal Controller who,
in this case, would be in charge of controlling traffic on final
approach course to the runways.

Kolbeck is the conection between the pilots and Maussan. He is
always searching for pilots on the ATC frequencies.

I was a supervisor, in 1975, at the Control Tower in Guadalajara
Mexico were I worked from 1973 to 1978. I graduated from two
Approach Radar courses there and worked in Mexico's Intl.
Airport as Radar Route Controller in 1979. I supervised Enrique
Kolbeck when he graduated from 'CIAAC' - Centro Internacional de
Adiestramiento de Aviacion Civil - an ATC (Air Traffic Control)
training center in Mexico.

I know Capt. Raymundo Cervantes Ruano who was the PIC flying the
DC9 - registration number XA-AMC - the day of the "crash" (hoax).

I had many interviews with maintenance personnel about this case
and from that date I had an interview with another eyewitness,
Capt. Alejandro Luna Sotura, a retired pilot, who was sitting in
the "jump seat" (observer seat inside the cockpit) that day and
now is working in Aeromexico as Security Chief.

Best regards,

Capt. Alejandro Franz
