They want to make sure she’s really dead
“Medical examiner dies in mysterious crash. Film at eleven.”
yeah that bullet in the head is going to be a little tricky to explain
Do they do this for non-governmental employees, or sons of martyred Presidents, in small plane crashes?
My only question is what will the federal agency created to accomplish this feat do when, ten years and 15 billion later, they finally succeed?
> They want to make sure shes really dead
And disinfect the plane. Death sure does come around 0’s administration a lot.
Well, it makes sense when you realize we're dealing with Marxists.
What evidence do we have that the plane crashed, and wasn’t scuttled?
So she was the only one?
The survivors who were aboard the aircraft and the witnesses on the ground who report they heard the loud bang which caused the engine to quit. The engine is a Curtiss Wright PT-6 turboprop design, which has been known to have some other recent failures in other aircraft that are still the subject of investigation to discover the causes. One of those causes may be EDD(Electrical Discharge damage) resulting from yet to be understood issues when repairing a failed electrical generator, accoding to an Australian air transportation agency.
Yeah, I’m sure that the other survivors who were treading water with her before she died totally wouldn’t have noticed something like that.
Maybe they want to confirm contents of her baggage.
I think that it's GREAT that the federal government has got lots of its own money laying around to spend on stuff like this, and doesn't have to tax the peasants at gunpoint to get it...
They should probably fly some TSA staff over from LAX to check the luggage as it comes off the plane.
Anytime I want someone offed, I make sure I have numerous witness, and draw media and helicopters to the scene.
<< And disinfect the plane. Death sure does come around 0s administration a lot. >>
Seriously, what’s a legitimate purpose for wanting to retrieve a useless plane? Why not just let it stay where it is? What happens in OTHER cases with normal, everyday people who ditch a small plane in the ocean? Why would the federal govt pay good money to retrieve a useless small plane?
IOW, for those who follow this type of thing, is this retrieval something “above and beyond” what is normally done? If yes, are there any legitimate reasons? Because the only thing that’s coming to my feeble little mind is to sanitize the plane before curiosity seeker scuba divers find it, and that doesn’t exactly fall under the “Legitimate” column.
So many questions...
To determine if there is a flaw in the design of the engine, bad repair parts (there are a lot of non TSO parts that are sold as TSO, fuel contamination etc. or perhaps improper maintenance. This is important to prevent future failures with this engine if this was the cause of the crash.
I put nothing beyond Obama, but this seems to be a straight up accident due to engine failure due to at this time unknown causes.
She knew too much period!
Out of 6-10 folks, I forget the exact number, she is THE ONLY dead person.
Minimally that is suspicious even to the numerous fools that would believe ANYTHING the federal government said!
A lot of those questions answered in the source article, including the cost of the plane’s recovery being billed to the airline’s insurance company, and the recovery being handled by a private company. And NTSB interest in the engine of the plane which has had a number of engine related accidents recently.
Her being the only dead person is not suspicious at all. No one was seriously injured in the crash. She, and everyone, got out of the plane. I’m far more inclined to believe she had a heart attack. Being fat, 65, and just having been in a plane crash could certainly cause a heart attack.
