Passengers On Frontier Flight To Philly Sprayed With 'Refreshing' Mist

CCTV Footage Shows Portia Odufuwa, 37, Shooting At Dallas Love Field Airport

In an update on Tuesday, Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia showed the members of the media some video footage of Odufuwa holding a gun in the air and firing rounds.

On July 25, 2022, at 10:57 AM, Portia Odufuwa, 37, arrived at Love Field Airport and exited a red Kia sedan. The preliminary investigation shows Odufuwa entered the terminal and walked into the restroom. About five minutes later, the suspect leaves the restroom wearing a black hoodie with the hood over her head and her hands in the front pockets. The suspect walks from the bathroom to the Southwest Airlines ticketing area and announces she has an announcement to make. Witnesses say Odufuwa starts to ramble, talking about a marriage, incarceration, and then said she was going to blow up the airport and pulls a handgun from her sweatshirt. At 11:06:44 she pointed the gun towards the ceiling and fired multiple rounds. Officer Ronald Cronin, a 15-year veteran of DPD, was in the immediate area and engaged Ms. Odufuwa, giving verbal commands to drop the weapon. At 11:06:50, Odufuwa pointed her gun at Officer Cronin and an innocent bystander. At 11:06:51, Officer Cronin took cover behind a ticket kiosk and fired his department-issued weapon, hitting the suspect multiple times. Officer Cronin held his position and other DPD officers arrived to take Odufuwa into custody. Officers started first aid and called Dallas Fire Rescue for assistance. Odufuwa was taken to a local hospital for treatment where she underwent surgery for her injuries. Source

Co-Pilot Charles Hew Crooks Has Panic Attack Jumps Out Of Plane And Plunges To The Ground - Body Found 25 Miles From Airport

The co-pilot of a aircraft died after jumping or falling out of the plane while it was preparing to make an emergency landing. 
The pilot reported that the twin-engine CASA CN-212 Aviocar lost its landing gear and requested permission to land at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. “Emergency, we’ve lost our right wheel,” the pilot told air traffic controllers in audio obtained by WRAL. “We’d like to speak to Raleigh and make an emergency landing at Raleigh.” Video showed the plane coming in for a hard landing and skidding off the runway. The pilot was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and has since been released. The body of the co-pilot, 23-year-old Charles Hew Crooks, was found several hours later in a backyard about 25 miles from the airport.

MIDAIR COLLISION: Four Dead After Two Single-Engine Planes Collide MID-AIR At North Las Vegas Airport

Four dead after two single-engine planes collide MID-AIR at North Las Vegas Airport: No one on board either craft survived after Piper aircraft landed in a field and Cessna fell into water retention pond 
A midair collision over North Las Vegas Airport has left four dead, police say, after two aircraft inexplicably collided leaving no survivors. The crash occurred at approximately noon Sunday, after two single-engine aircraft - each carrying two people - collided over an active runway. One of the aircraft crashed in a field east of the runway - with the other falling into a water retention pond. Officials say that one of the planes had been preparing to land when it struck by the other aircraft at high speeds, causing both to burst into flames. Footage circulating online shows the mangled remains of one of the planes smoldering on the sun-scorched tarmac, and a thick plume of smoke billowing up into the sky. The victims in the tragedy have yet to be named - but at least two of them had been piloting the small, personal aircrafts: a single-engine Piper PA-46 and a single-engine Cessna 172. Police Sunday confirmed the fatalities, and say that the accident is currently under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board. North Las Vegas police confirmed the crash to Sunday, saying there had been 'multiple fatalities' as a result of the collision. 'I can confirm that two planes have crashed resulting in multiple fatalities,' NLVPD Public Information Officer Alexander Cuevas said of the incident, adding that the department has since handed the investigation to federal officials. 'The NTSB and the FAA have taken over control of the investigation,' the officer said. 'We are assisting where requested.' The FAA also confirmed the midair collision Sunday in a statement, which revealed that each plane had been carrying two passengers at the time of the crash. Source

Explosions For Two Hours After Plane Carrying 12 Tonnes Of Weapons Crashes

Explosions for two hours after plane carrying 12 tonnes of weapons crashes 

Explosions were heard for two hours after the crash as locals saw a fireball light up the sky near the city of Kavala. The Antonov An-12 cargo plane took off from Nis in Serbia on Saturday and was heading to Amman in Jordan when it crashed shortly before 11pm local time. Minutes earlier, the pilot of the Soviet-era plane, which was operated by Ukrainian cargo carrier Meridian, had told air traffic controllers there was a problem with one of the engines and he had to make an emergency landing. He was directed to the nearby Kavala International Airport but never made it. Drone footage showed small fragments were all that remained of the plane, which crashed in fields between two villages and dragged a small distance on the ground.Greek media reported there were eight people on the plane and it was carrying 12 tonnes of ‘dangerous materials’, mostly explosives. Small fires and a plume of white smoke were still rising from the front end of the plane on Sunday morning. Firefighters who rushed to the scene were prevented from reaching the crash site by smoke and an intense smell which they feared might be toxic. Villagers were told to keep their windows shut all night, to not leave their homes and to wear masks. Source

British Airways Is Asking Passengers If They Can Cancel Their Trips Amid Airline Chaos

British Airways is asking passengers if they can cancel their trips amid airline chaos 
British Airways asked travellers to consider postponing their summer holidays yesterday as the airline struggle to deal with demand. The UK’s flag carrier contacted passengers set to fly before July 25 asking them if they’d reschedule their flights free of charge. It asked passengers travelling in the next fortnight if they would like to reschedule their flights for free, and that they could change their trip to another BA-operated flight within the next 12 months, subject to availability. A spokesperson for the airline said it hoped the policy would reassure customers and provide them with extra flexibility. Mr Charles said: “I said it would be a summer of stress. BA now asking those travelling before July 25 to consider changing flights, so enabling them to more easily choose which flights to cancel at short notice.” The airline, which laid off around 10,000 staff due to the pandemic, has been ravaged by cancellations and delays this summer as it struggles to get flights in the air and services running on time amid serious staff shortages.

Bomb Threat Prompts Evacuation At San Francisco Airport, Person Detained

Passengers were evacuated from the international terminal at San Francisco International Airport Friday night because of a bomb threat, authorities said. Officers assigned to the airport received a report of a bomb threat around 8:15 p.m., found a suspicious package and "deemed the item possibly incendiary," said Officer Robert Rueca, a San Francisco Police Department spokesperson. A man has been detained in connection with the incident, Rueca said. Additional police resources, including the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit, have been deployed, and an investigation is underway, he said. Airport officials confirmed shortly before 9:30 p.m. that "ongoing police activity" prompted the evacuation and told travelers to avoid the international terminal until further notice."AirTrain and BART service are suspended," the officials said. "Passenger drop-off and pick-up only at the Domestic Terminals." Several travelers took to Twitter and other social media sites to post about the evacuation, with one saying they heard an announcement that the international terminal was shut down but that no other information was provided over the airport's announcement system. Officials with the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency issued an alert at 8:50 p.m. stating that the airport station was closed "due to police activity" and that bus service was available between Millbrae and the airport in both directions. Additional information about the incident was not available late Friday. Source

Ripudaman Singh Malik, acquitted in 1985 Air India bombing, shot dead in BC

Who is Ripudaman Singh Malik?

Ripudaman Singh Malik, Founder of the Khalsa Credit Union Was Shot | Punjab Mail USA TV Channel

Ripudaman Singh Malik , Acquitted Terrorist Of Air India Flight 182 Bombing Was Assassinated

Ripudaman Singh Malik, the man acquitted in the 1985 Air India terrorist bombing, has been killed in a targeted shooting in Surrey, B.C. An employee who works at the car wash near the site of the shooting said he heard shots and ran outside to find Malik unconscious in his car. "There was three gunshots. One hit on the neck, that's it. And I just took him out. He was alive," said the man, who didn't want to be named because of safety concerns. Police arrived in about 10 to 15 minutes, he said, and an ambulance took longer. The man said he knew Malik as a customer at the car wash and because he had a business nearby. Sarj Basra, the owner of the Auto Shine Car Wash and Detail, wasn't at work when the shooting happened but said it's upsetting and scary that something like that would happen in their neighbourhood. "Someone we know has passed away to violence," 

Basra said. He described Malik as a calm, gentle man. "He was always joking. You know, always coming in here, talking to us, standing around. (He) would come here, joke around with us and say, 'You know guys get to work, they're sitting around here, here's the keys to my car.'" Basra said Malik was a customer and many of his vehicles were serviced at his business. RCMP said in a news release that a man died in what appeared to be a targeted attack on Thursday morning, but they did not name the victim. Police said a vehicle believed to be used in the shooting was found fully engulfed in fire a few blocks away. "The investigation is in the early stages and police are still looking for the suspects and a second vehicle that may have been used as getaway vehicle." Malik and his co-accused, Ajaib Singh Bagri, were found not guilty in March 2005 of murder and conspiracy in a pair of Air India bombings that killed 331 people on June 23, 1985. B.C. Supreme Court heard during the trial that a suitcase bomb was loaded onto a plane at Vancouver's airport and then transferred in Toronto to Air India Flight 182. The aircraft crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Ireland, killing 329 passengers and crew.About an hour later, a bomb destined for another Air India plane exploded prematurely at Tokyo's Narita Airport, where two baggage handlers died. Inderjit Singh Reyat, the only man convicted in the bombings, testified for the Crown at Malik and Bagri's trial and was later convicted of perjury. Source

500 Flights Are Cancelled And 1,900 Are Delayed As July Fourth Weekend 'Airmageddon' Begins

500 flights are cancelled and 1,900 are delayed as July Fourth weekend 'Airmageddon' begins: Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg 'gives up' and tells passengers to claim compensation from airlines 
Airlines have cancelled and delayed hundreds of flights in the U.S. sparking travel chaos during the busiest Fourth of July weekend since the pandemic, which has been dubbed 'Airmageddon.' Around 48 million people are expected to travel this weekend with AAA estimating 3.5million would take to the air. But the actual number of passengers flying may be dramatically higher as, the Transportation Security Administration screened more than 2.4 million travelers at airports on Thursday alone - up 17 percent from the Fourth of July Friday in 2019. Many fliers will be facing disappointment, with 421 flights canceled by 11am, and 1,942 have been delayed, according to Flight Aware, which reported that by the end of Friday, 586 U.S. flights were called off and 7,773 were rescheduled. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who previously called on airlines to get in shape before the weekend, appeared to give up on getting things under control as he told Americans to follow his lead and claim compensation over the canceled flights. 'Airlines offer miles as compensation for some travel issues, and you can often negotiate on this,' tweeted Buttigieg, who said he got back $112.07 over his canceled flight on Friday after he was initially offered about $30 back. 'Sometimes an airline will offer you points or miles as compensation, but you are entitled to a cash refund when your flight is canceled.' Leading major U.S. airlines in cancellations on Saturday was American Airlines, which canceled 80 flights and delayed 112 flights. Delta followed behind, canceling 40 flights and delaying 156. United Airlines has canceled 35 flights and delayed 84, and Southwest has yet to see a cancellation today, but has delayed 506 flights so far. Since the hectic Juneteenth travel weekend, the U.S. has seen more than 12,000 flights cancelled, according to Flight Aware. In addition to airport chaos and heavy traffic, holiday travelers will have to contend with higher prices. Average gas prices have soared 56 percent from a year ago, mid-range hotel prices have increased 23 percent, and average lowest airfares are up 14 percent. In total, AAA projects that 47.9 million Americans will travel for the Fourth this year, up 3.7 percent from last year and close to the historic peak reached in 2019, before the pandemic struck.

Our Lady Of Loreto Is The Patroness Of St Thomas Aquinas Versus NASA Blog JULY 2022

Pope St. John XXIII made a pilgrimage to the Holy House on October 4, 1962 to pray the day before the opening of Vatican Council II, to ask the Blessed Virgin's protection of the Council. Pope Benedict made the same pilgrimage 50 years later on October 4, 2012. Source

148 days after his visit to the Flying House Pope Benedict resigned.

Our Lady of Loreto is the Patroness of Aviation?

What? No, She is not. 

The Flying House of Our Lady would NEVER violate the law of God!

The Flying House NEVER flew above 29,050ft, but modern day aircraft violate this boundary 24/7.

Many Catholics are ignorant of the boundary that God has established that man must not pass over and that is 29,050 ft or 15 cubits above the mountain tops.

This 29,050 boundary is the same level that the waters of the Deluge reached in the time of Noe cleansing the world of sin.

This boundary is the same that the fires of the final conflagration will reach at the end of days to cleanse the world of sin.

Of course none of you believe a word of this, and that is where the problem lies. 

Modern man violates the boundary but nature does not.

Modern men violate the law of God with air and space travel - all commercial flights exceed 29,050 ft 24/7.

What happens when men violate God's laws?

Punishments in one form or another. 

So with this in mind I now made  Our Lady of Loreto as the Patroness of St Thomas Aquinas Versus NASA Blog

I will invoke Our Lady of Loreto during Mass to destroy the air and space industry.

Just like a few men prayed to God to destroy the tower of Babel.

Will update regularly
