Letter: The big hush up of a near miss at the E. T. Joshua Arnos Vale Airport
Published on December 12, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

Friday 6th December, lunch time. Whilst driving with friend to shop at CK Greaves Sunrise Super-Market in St Vincent, we witnessed a near miss at the airport. We saw an Islander aircraft abort a landing and suddenly accelerate upwards and head into the mountains. Then we saw that there was a LIAT aircraft that had pulled out of the apron aircraft park onto the runway, into the direct path of the landing light aircraft.

After making all sorts of enquiries over the last few days, including alerting media houses, who have made their own enquiries, there is a great denial that this incident happened. Had I not seen this with my own eyes I also may have offered some disbelief. But it happened.

What is going on when there is a need to enter into a conspiracy of silence, instead of an enquiry to ensure this doesn’t happen again in the future?

How many lives may have been lost if these aircraft collided and burst into flames?

A group of people must have conspired to keep this a secret, but we must have the truth.

Anyone with further information, please tell us what you saw.

Allan Standing Tall palmer:


Peter what could be the cause for this cover up? I can guess. It is probably the fault or the deadly error of one of the U.L.P hand pick appointees. From my understanding of the way things work with airport control, each flight are given a course on which they must maintain, this is plotted out in conjunction with the other craft that is using the air space within the vicinity.

In the case of aircraft taking off and landing, no one makes a move unless they are directed to do so by the control tower. To do otherwise could have serious and deadly repercussion. Pilots can be prosecuted and even have their license revoke.

So If you saw the sudden abortion of a landing and soon after that you see another aircraft enter into what would have been the part of the of the craft that suddenly aborted its landing efforts; all that means is some one give conflicting directives to both crafts. and it was the aborting pilot's quick thinking and actions that saves the lives of many and the expenses of dealing with a crash and we know that could be pretty expensive.

It is ashame that the aborting pilot cannot get the credit for his heroics and quick thinking. all be cause we are covering up the incompitences or may a genuine error of could it be a well intended person.

I am ashamed or what is happening in my country. The end is near. Just in case you missed it. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...

Peter Binose:

ALLAN, your probably right.

This regime is what may be called the 'cover-up cowboys' they cover up everything. The use of silence, lies and misinformation, deception and conspiracy are the tools of the cover-up cowboys.

It all stems from the chief haunch, the 'Cover-up Kid'

Allan all of these cover-up things are based in Marxism, the cancer within SVG's politics today.

People in the ministries and government are thieving the place down. When caught, if they are little people they are exposed and punished. If they are slightly bigger or much bigger fish, they are moved sideways into what we sometimes see as better jobs.

When jobs for the boys are created it means if they let the chief hauncho down, to expose them exposes the stupidity of the chief hauncho's choice in the first place. So its all hidden, the lies, the deceit, the silence all used to weave the rough fabric of deception in which to clothe the people.

The sooner Marxism is removed from our politics and that of CARICOM and other island nations, the better off we will all be.

Only then will we be able to get back to true Christianity, because the secret agenda of Marxism is the destruction of Christianity. The problem is that many of the ignorant that follow the chief hauncho’s in the Caribbean are just unaware of this. They pretend to be Christians, but it is just that pretence.

That is why I sometimes say ‘WAKEUP AND SMELL THE SULPHUR’.
