Las Vegas Shooter Targeted Secret Government Planes In Addition To Victims Stephen Paddock might have held anti-American views, expert says. By Radar Staff Posted on Oct 5, 2017 @ 13:27PM Las Vegas Shooter Targeted Secret Government Planes In Addition To Victims thumbnail
Las Vegas madman Stephen Paddock not only targeted innocent concertgoers but also seemingly the hanger for the U.S. governments super secret JANET airlines.
Law enforcement sources exclusively told RadarOnline.com that just afield of the two massive, circular fuel tanks at which Paddock fired, lies the shadowy terminal for JANET.
JANET is essentially an airline that doesnt exist, a source told Radar. It is not affiliated with any other airline.
Insiders call it the CIAs airline, but, informally, its known as JANET because its pilots use that identifier over air traffic control frequencies.
The airline mostly uses JANET as a shuttle service for military VIPs between Las Vegas and Area 51, the source added. The joke is that the acronym stands for Just Another Non-Existent Terminal.

Its also a very intriguing angle given Paddock worked for the predecessor of Lockheed Martin, one of the U.S. governments most relied upon military aviation manufacturers.
As Radar previously reported, Paddock broke the window of his Mandalay Bay and Casino suite on the 32nd floor and fired upon the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, killing 59 and wounding more than 500 more.
But the retired 64-year-old also broke a second window and fired at two circular, white-pained fuel tanks 1,110 feet from the concert site on the edge of McCarran International Airport.
Officials have now confirmed he hit the tanks twice, although the bullets did not pierce their shells. Construction crews have already whitewashed the damage. Airport fueling has not been compromised, airport spokesman Chris Jones acknowledged. Its functional.
The tanks are owned and operated by Swissport, and used primarily to fuel numerous private airlines located around that part of McCarran. The closest airline is JANET.

In the wake of these revelations, Radar has learned JANET planes are officially owned by the U.S. Air Force and operated by defense contractor AECOM. The planes neither carry nor display an N-number, and none of the usual identifying marks common to commercial and privately owned aircraft.
But those in the know them only by the distinctive red cheat line painted prominently across the planes fuselages.
The airline is most commonly used by the U.S. government to ferry military and government VIPs, and contractors between Las Vegas and Area 51, the super secret base where the military is believed to test experimental weapons and aircraft.
JANET is based at McCarran International Airport and its hanger is just beyond a parking lot directly adjacent to those gas tankers, Radars source said.
Dawna Kaufmann, an investigative journalist and author of Final Exams, told Radar she has monitored air traffic transmissions from McCarran.
Each day many flights go from McCarran to various intelligence agency outposts, including Area 51, she said. But most flights go to Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs, 35 miles northwest of Vegas.
Creech is where a joint US/UK program is housed for identifying drone targets in Iraq and Afghanistan or any other Middle East hot spot.

All of the drone attacks that have taken out enemies have been given the go-ahead by military brass at Creech.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for Paddocks acts although authorities have discredited the groups assertion.
Kaufmann told Radar the presence of JANET near the targeted fuel tanks could provide the missing link to unraveling Paddocks madness.
Paddock might have held anti-American views that made him want to target our government. We know the Philippines is a hotbed of ISIS activity, Kaufmann said.
Its likely Paddock had two missions one for the concert goers and the second to do something anti-American, perhaps at the behest of an enemy nation.
While this may be true, there seems to be a lot of effort to make the narrative anything other than this being an attack on a mostly white, conservative-leaning crowd.
I suspect the hits on the hangar and fuel storage tanks were “golden BB’s”.
I think the tinfoil is screwed down a bit too tight!
Did he have an ax to grind with a former employer?
might have held anti-American views,
Queue the X-Files theme.
This guy sounds like he may have been privy to some interesting information, but was paranoid and went off the deep end with it.
Airlines so secret he knew about them?
The Psychic Hotline really works!
Well, its not super-secret any more....
lol... probably don’t mean to suppose there were any creepy secrets, but that he was paranoid and developed some kind of anti-secrecy agenda
Most people in Vegas know about Janet airlines, I see them fly over everyday. You can see them from Mandalay, just look for the planes with the orange stripe.
Area 51 makes a cameo....lolol
If it really was Paddock's intention to hit those tanks, he would have known enough to have brought up a Barrett .50 cal rifle with him, instead of 23 AR10s and AR15s.
Paddock was obviously unstable, who knows what he was thinking as he was shooting.
And the odor of Spook gets a little stronger.
