Body of child found in wheel well of US military plane
ABC via kvue ^ | July 29, 2014 | ABC

Posted on 07/29/2014 4:28:40 PM PDT by bgill

The body of a male adolescent was found Sunday night in the wheel-well of a U.S. Air Force C-130 at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany after the plane had arrived from a flight that originated in Mali... The aircraft had made one other stop in Africa and another in Sigonella, Italy, before arriving at Ramstein, Kirby said. It's unclear whether this child was a stowaway or where the child had boarded the plane.

Did he do it on a lark or was it something much worse?

Was he supposed to be aboard the aircraft? No! Therefore, he was a stowaway. Case closed.

It was an airplane, not a lark. Larks are too small to transport humans.

I’d like to know what the other stop was in light of the Ebola epidemic. Probably none of my business though. In fact the whole story might be denied in short order.

The disturbing thing was that he was a stowaway on a MILITARY AIRCRAFT. What the heck is going in with their security there?

Gee I wonder if some jihadis might consider weaponizing ebola ?

All they need is one infected person with a valid passport

Are we done redefining the word: Child?

child

1.young human being: a young human being between birth and puberty

2.human offspring: a son or daughter of human parents

3.somebody not yet of age: somebody under a legally specified age who is considered not to be legally responsible for his or her actions

the age at which puberty occurs often construed legally as 14 in boys and 12 in girls

Don’t know if it’s true or not but I heard on the radio the child was infectious. They didn’t say with what.

The way things are nowadays, some enterprising lawyer may initiate a lawsuit over the fact that the boy died. Why wasn’t the wheel well sealed and pressurized to corotect him from the cold and thin atmosphere at high altitudes? Was the plane an attractive nuisance in legal terms? Was security at the airfield inadequate to keep out people wandering in such as this boy???

No case not closed!

How did he get access to one of our military planes unnoticed?

If he was a terrorist how many bombs could he have planted aboard planes?

This is a serious lapse in security.

I was writing a story and I needed an acronym for a small wheeled/tracked armed robot drone. Maybe for WOLVES if possible.

I was only discussing whether or not he was a stowaway. That case is closed. However, other issues need to be investigated and resolved; therefore, they are still open.

And at the request of Obama's friends in the Muslim world, that information has now been classified Top Secret.

But...what is the air-speed velocity of an unladen African swallow?

CBS stated the flight originated in Senegal. The same Senegal with Ebola.

I would trade an ambitious youngster willing to risk life in order to better his future over any USA 3rd generation on welfare raised youngster , wearing hoodies, smoking pot and rap sheet longer than his arm.

So the boy came from Africa? Did he die of Ebola? Will anyone bother to ask?

Was it an English Lark, or an African Lark?

This blogger has some interesting insights....

http://formerspook.blogspot.com/

USAF military transports typically carry a small security team with them while on missions in known threat areas, or regions where security may be problematic. The Pentagon won’t say if a “Phoenix Raven” team was on board the C-130 in question, but some “Herk” crews have a low opinion of them.

I’ve heard of this happening before, also a flight originating from Africa. This, and all the other illegal alien nonsense, is an unarguable voice for western countries to run these countries they’re from, so they can stay home.

Oh, Yeah...

Perhaps two European swallows could carry it on a line?
