Hi Joe!

Although this newspaper article does not have anything directly
to do with UFOs, its very dubious claims could be used to
discount pilots as reliable witnesses should they make a UFO
sighting.

This article may have had another mischieveous disinformation
goal in mind. One of the unrelated pictures included with this
article was a picture of JFK Jr which had the following caption:
"Victim of SD: The plane John F Kennedy Jr piloted crashed into
the Atlantic Ocean". Oh really?

I guess I was wrong in suspecting that certain powerful and evil
people would do anything to prevent JFK Jr from running for
President and also to prevent him from revealing very disturbing
truths in the well researched and more credible articles
published in his magazine 'George'. Also, JFK Jr was being urged
by some to run for Senator in New York. He would probably have
won easily thereby preventing Hillary Clinton from getting this
position, a step in her ultimate goal of one day running for
President herself.

I forwarded this article to a pilot friend of mine with nearly
25,000 hours of pilot time. This friend never thought he was
sitting on the wing of an airplane or had any other spatial
disorientation experiences, including during stressful periods
while flying in poor weather.

My pilot friend didn't think JFK Jr had an SD problem either.
Although JFK Jr was an experienced and cautious pilot, and his
aircraft was well equipped with instruments, my friend told me
that he was flying nearby during that same time period JFK Jr's
aircraft went down and remembers that the visibility was lousy.
Also, having two women in the aircraft could well have caused an
added distraction.

In support of my suspicions of foul play, my pilot friend did
say he heard a report that someone near the destination Kennedy
was trying to reach, either heard an explosion, saw a flash of
light through the haze above him, or both.
