"You're Gonna Die Up There" Chilean Military Plane Carrying 38 People Crashes En Route To Antarctica

Chilean Military Plane Carrying 38 People Crashes En Route To Antarctica

A Chilean military plane with 38 people on board has crashed on its way to Antarctica, Chile's air force said Tuesday. Air force officials say they have not been able to locate the Hercules C-130 transport, but based on the number of hours it's been missing, have determined it likely crashed. A search and rescue mission is ongoing, The Associated Press reports. "My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the 38 crew members and passengers of the FACh (Air Force) C-130 plane," Chilean president Sebastian PiƱera wrote on Twitter. The plane took off Monday from the city of Punta Arenas in Patagonia, headed for King George Island, Antarctica. The crew had been assigned to help perform maintenance tasks at a Chilean base there, the BBC reported. Air force Gen. Eduardo Mosquiera told local media that the plane did not activate a distress signal and may have been forced to perform a water landing. He also said the pilot had extensive flying experience. The air force said it lost contact with the plane 450 miles into what should have been a 770-mile flight. On Twitter, officials posted a map of the plane's last point of contact, somewhere within the remote Drake Passage, an icy, penguin-populated stretch of ocean off the edge of the continent. The plane was carrying 17 crew members and 21 passengers, the BBC reported, including a Magellanes University student and two civilians who worked for an engineering and construction firm contracted to do work on the Antarctic base.

Sounds like a bomb detonated at 10,000ft.... Boeing 737 jet with 62 people onboard 'crashes' after 'falling 10,000ft' following takeoff from Indonesia and VANISHING off radar - as rescuers find debris in the ocean A Boeing 737 passenger jet with 62 people onboard has disappeared over the sea after plummeting 10,000 feet shortly following takeoff from Jakarta, reports claim. The Sriwijaya Air plane took off from Soekarno-Hatta international airport on Saturday afternoon when it lost contact with the control room. The usual flight time is about 90 minutes over the Java Sea between Jakarta and Kalimantan, Indonesia's section of Borneo island. But four minutes after it took off, the Boeing B737-500 plane plunged nearly 11,000 feet in less than 60 seconds, leaving it at an altitude of just 250 feet before it vanished. There are feared to be 62 people on the 26-year-old plane, including 56 passengers - seven of whom are children and three are babies - as well as two

Israel's Space Official Jew Haim Eshed "I Don't Believe That Jesus Christ Is God But I Do Believe In Space Aliens Of The Galactic Federation Who Live In An Underground Mars Base"....

  OK..... Mankind has made contact with an alien 'Galactic Federation' but it has been kept secret because 'humanity isn't ready', former head of Israel's space security program claims  An Israeli space official has claimed that aliens are real and secretly in contact with America and Israel - but are keeping their existence quiet because humanity 'isn't ready'. Haim Eshed - who was head of Israel's space security programme for nearly 30 years and is a retired general - described a so-called 'Galactic Federation' which supposedly runs an underground Mars base in a secret pact with Washington. But the aliens had to intervene to stop Donald Trump when he appeared 'on the verge' of blurting out their secrets, he told Israeli paper Yediot Aharonot. And the 87-year-old Eshed says the aliens will not come into the open until humanity can 'evolve and reach a stage where we will... understand what space and spaceships are&#
