New documents from witness accounts reveal that Arian Prevella, a flight instructor and the owner of American Flight Academy in Hartford, struggled with flying student, Feras Freitekh. On...

    A quick search shows that it happened in October of 2013. The shooting is done by the police officer in the grey shirt. The helmet video clearly shows the officer shooting the hijacker. Note that the revolver used by the motorcycle jacker had been placed back in his pocket.  The person with the helmet video is out of the line of fire by a few feet. The officer appears to be about 15 feet from the jacker when he shoots. The revolver used by the jacker is likely a Taurus or Rossi .38 caliber. Link to video ©2017 by...

    BREAKING: A man who claimed to be wearing a suicide belt when he hijacked an EgyptAir passenger plane and forced it to land in Cyprus Tuesday morning is “not a terrorist,” but a lovestruck “idiot,” Egypt’s foreign ministry said as authorities worked to gain the release of the last seven passengers and crewmembers still aboard.

He released most of the passengers, but kept three as well as four members of...

A second Cypriot official says there "seems like there's more than one hijacker." He says there have been no demands other than that police vehicles move away from the aircraft. Another Cypriot official said that...

    Most Americans have heard of the case of DB Cooper, who is accused of pulling off the only plane hijacking in the history of the United States that has never been solved. Now, 44 years after the brazen air heist, a Michigan author has put forward a new theory linking the mystery of DB Cooper to an obscure missing person case involving a married father of four who vanished two years before the skyjacking and was never heard from again. Over the years, the facts of the skyjacking history have become the stuff of legends: on November 24, 1971, a...

On the reported failed attempt by Pakistani militants to hijack 'PNS Zulfiqar' in Karachi, Dhowan said it was indeed a "very, very serious situation" which the Indian Navy has taken "serious note of". While one report had then said that the plan of the militants was to use the hijacked ship to...

    The media narrative is on full display today. This is a narrative that the left and establishment Republicans want to spin.That spin is that the tea party is losing. The tea party lost in North Carolina and now lost in Kentucky.The tea party did not lose. But the tea party has a major problem: It is being hijacked.In 2010, the Republicans welcomed the tea party movement. The GOP was all but dead, and the tea party movement was the vehicle for a GOP resurgence. In 2012, the Republicans tried to ignore the tea party. This year, Republican consultants in D.C....

    What Pilots Think About The Crazy New Theory That The Missing Malaysia Jet Used Another Jet To HideAlex DaviesMarch 17, 2014 Not surprisingly, the disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370 with 239 people on board more than a week ago has led some people to come up with very interesting theories about what might have happened. On his Tumblr, self-identified hobby pilot and aviation enthusiast Keith Ledgerwood put forward the most elaborate and interesting suggestion we've heard yet. He argues the 777 could have flown over India and Pakistan, avoiding military radar detection by turning off its communications systems and following...

    With the authorities settling on what amounts to air piracy, the Daily Mail is reporting a theory that the pilot of MH370 may have hijacked the plane as a political protest against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's latest sodomy conviction. The British tabloid revealed that hours before he took command of the Boeing 777-200ER (9M-MRO) bound for Beijing last Saturday, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah had gone to court on March 7 for the trial and sentencing of Anwar in the sodomy case. The opposition leader was jailed for five years by the Court of Appeal which had overturned his High Court...

    OK, I know everyone has their own theories as to the motivations behind the missing 777. Let's put them in one place, give us your top 3. Here's mine. 1. Tom Clancy/Executive Orders scenario. Plane will be used later as a WMD to take out something in Washington or New York. Passengers killed/ransomed. 2. Diversion by Russia/Iran so Putin could do his thing during the distraction. Will be used later as possible unstoppable destruction device to disable or take out one of our carriers in the Med. Passengers killed/ransomed. 3. Plane was designed to climate strategic Diego Garcia near Indian...
