This lie is so bold and blatant that many have come to accept it as true, even though official documents tell another story.
Now Global Research reveals new evidence showing that the loss of life was an intentional act of sabotage. On the evening of 2 Junean RAF Chinook military helicopter slammed into a mountainside on the Mull of Kintyre in thick fog, killing all 29 onboard. The helicopter took off from Aldergrove in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland, crossed the Antrim hills and the narrow Irish Sea to the Mull of Kintyre, and was to have headed along the Scottish coast to the western end of the Great Glen, thence along it to Inverness.
But the ill-fated Chinook never made it to Fort George. About an hour into the journey, at around 6pm, the transport helicopter crashed into a hillside feet above sea level on the Mull of Kintyre. The crash was quickly understood to have been a tragic accident caused by poor visibility in bad fog — weather conditions that are a routine hazard in that part of the British Isles even in summertime.
The RAF has continued to maintain to the public that this was a simple ferry flight, passing by the Mull at low level under Visual Flying Regulations VFR ; the planning was portrayed as vague and informal and the pilots were blamed for inappropriate action upon entering Instrument Meteorological Conditions IMC near the Mull — that is, simply, that they did not carry out required and well practised procedures when they ran into fog.
The official conclusion was that the pilots had elected to fly over the Mull rather than turn away from it, and that they had set up a wrong rate of climb. Apart from this particular piece of bad airmanship, the public has to wonder how such an experienced crew ended up hitting what in reality was an isolated low hill?
This was in response to the last official inquiry into the incident chaired by Lord Philip, published the same month, which determined that there were insufficient grounds beyond reasonable doubt to make such a harsh judgment on the deceased.
That is, that the pilots made an error in trying to fly over the Mull, with the emphasis on sudden inclement weather inducing them to miscalculate. Independent investigation But a private investigation into the circumstances of the crash has now revealed exclusively to Global Research that the official account is seriously flawed.
Disturbingly, there are sound reasons and evidence to indicate that the Chinook was brought down deliberately with the intention of wiping out the counterinsurgency team. British aviation expert Walter Kennedy, who has spent the most part of 17 years independently assessing the incident, said: There have been so many lies, misrepresentations and obfuscations.
Anyone with an avionics background who looks into this will see that the official account is seriously flawed. He has also pieced together sensitive information obtained from various RAF sources .
What he has found is stunning. It is fascinating that none of the official inquiries probed the obvious questions that arise from the known flight records.
The official line seems to be determined to stick to an account that is demonstrably not supported by the data. Not only the last Lord Philip review but all other inquiries failed to make use of this data — indeed, many factors were severally rubbished, quite wrongly, when not only did they make sense on their own but together correlated into a clear picture.
In a complex scenario, when a single picture is consistent with all the known data, the probability of this picture being correct is very high — like a repeated weak signal in signal processing technology, the more you get the more it correlates.
This, Kennedy says, is an appalling misrepresentation of the actual conditions prevailing at the time of the crash.
Fog and poor visibility are features to be sure, but the weather is predictable. Also, the fog and cloud are generated from the landmass. Typically, the terrain overlooking the Mull was shrouded in a thin ground-hugging mist on the lower slopes whereas ground above feet was covered in a dense orographic cloud.
Offshore, the sea was typically not covered in fog. While the ground detail of the landmass would have been obscured by the mist and cloud, the proximity of the landmass would have been identifiable by the approaching helicopter owing to the contrast in visibility.
He points out that the official inquiries into the Chinook crash do not take into account actual weather conditions typical of the Mull of Kintyre.
The crew were not overwhelmed by sudden bad weather. As we shall, they were flying deliberately and under control towards a specific point on the Mull — albeit that the point was obscured by localized mist and cloud.
Instrument settings and flight plans verify their deliberate movements. Some other untoward factor must explain their final fatal moments. It is noteworthy that an RAF Sea King rescue helicopter arrived safely at the scene 45 minutes after the crash under the same conditions.
This underlines that the conditions were not inordinately hazardous. Also remarkably, the testimony of the rescue helicopter crew about the landing conditions was never brought to the inquiries, at least publicly.
Political motives for liquidation Before addressing further the technical evidence for sabotage here, first it is important to appreciate the political context at the time of the Chinook incident and thus provide understanding of a powerful motive for why these intelligence assets could have been liquidated.
When the final official inquiry by Lord Philip was published last July, Global Research speculated then on the possibility that the Chinook disaster could have been an inside job by the British authorities for important tactical reasons to bring about an end to the war in Northern Ireland .
But the problem for the British at that crucial time in was convincing the Irish republican movement to call off its formidable armed struggle. That was because two previous ceasefires brokered in the s had been used by the British as an opportunity to try to defeat the IRA through covert methods, such as infiltration with informers.Text for H.R - th Congress (): John S.
