Russian investigators reveal identity of key witness in MH17 crash

Aircraft mechanic testifies that Ukraine Air Force shot down the plane.

The aircraft returned to the airfield with empty ammunition. To his colleagues, Voloshin said that the plane was “at the wrong time or in the wrong place,” said the Investigative Committee spokesman.

“Our jets were flying regularly,” Agapov said in his testimony.“When one returned, the pilot, Captain Voloshin, got out of the cockpit.” He added that, as Captain Voloshin walked away with the other pilots, Agapov heard him say: “That was the wrong plane.”


Teachers using meditation techniques to get students to focus.  Looks a lot like Zen.  This is being tried in schools and getting attention.




The new Garry Trudeau Amazon pilot is up.  I think it’s free for everyone, too.  It had me from the first scene, and I’m so glad John Goodman is in it.  Funny stuff and timely political humor.

In typical fascistic abuse of power — the TSA sent agents to the pilot’s home to intimidate and harass him, after he posted a video to Youtube exposing how ground workers at airports have extremely lax security.

Says a TSA spokesman in the ABC News piece: “It isn’t feasible to screen all the employees…”

This obvious gaping hole in security should be of major interest to the nation. All one needs is some basic knowledge of the airport and a stolen ID card to slide through a reader. That’s it, and they can enter the airfield. While paying passengers are being sexually molested in their holding area, anyone with know-how could be sabotaging aircraft through the back door.

In Orwell’s America, what you would expect to happen happened: the pilot has been persecuted for alerting the public, and his Youtube video taken down in a suppression of free speech.

‘Sich heil.’ Fly safely.
