Virgin Atlantic Airways to Show Loose Change 2 In-Flight

UPDATE: Confirmed by Virgin Atlantic's in flight entertainment web page. Its listed, however, under "tv" and not under "movies". So is it one of the in-flight options, but not the official turn-off-the-lights in-flight movie?

Patricia Hickey of Mercury Media has confirmed this story to me by email, copying Dylan Avery with her response. Tim Sparke of Mercury Media also confirmed the story to me, and said that the story should get some press tomorrow. Sparke said that the film will run during the month of May.

I've attached the press release and what is supposedly a page from Virgin Atlantic's May magazine. As you can see from the magazine, Loose Change is the movie Virgin Atlantic recommends people watch.

Mercury Media is a real company, apparently founded by alums of Disney, Sony Pictures, and other large media players.

Press Release:


May 1st, 2007 – MercuryMedia International announce they have licensed the 9/11 Internet hit Loose Change 2 to Virgin Atlantic Airways.

The controversial film, made for just $10,000 has attracted over 50 million downloads, and has been broadcast in 50 territories worldwide. It has featured in numerous documentaries about the circumstances surrounding 9/11, and become the film most associated with the growing 9/11 movement. It will debut on Virgin, the first airline to offer the film to its passengers in May 2007.

‘We applaud Virgin’s decision to show the film onboard’ said Tim Sparke, Managing Director of MercuryMedia. ‘Whether you agree or disagree with its thesis, it is arguably one of the most important films this century. To give passengers the opportunity to view the film speaks volumes about Virgin’s wish to connect directly with its passengers.

Rebecca Smith, Manager Acquisitions & Publishing for Virgin Atlantic:

‘Loose Change 2 has been an Internet phenomenon that continues to provoke debate and for that reason we feel it's something our passengers will want to watch so that they can draw their own conclusions.’

Good God !

Of course its a joke - why is it on the front page of


Show "?" by chad9353

I have, my colleagues have put allot of shit on this "Pomy"...

for along time because the brash Mr. Branson has taken allot from the airline industry over the years by lowering the costs of travel and the pays of workers, in what he has said is in the name of the people!

Well I will never ever deny that he is for the people and their freedom again! I will now even consider working for him!

Obviously we should not confuse entrepreneurs and CEO's they are completely different animals.

This story gets my vote for the best news since Rosie!

Yesterday as I was handing out my Deception dollars at Sydney Airport I gave a couple to a 737 captain (who's on the truth page), he said slowly the industry is waking up and he said he'll pass out a few truth dollars to other captains. This now makes about 5 QANTAS captains that I know of as truthers. I wonder how many their might be soon, I remind you, you will find no more conservative and cautious person than a Qantas Airline Captain!!

This I hope is "NO JOKE" and 911blogger is THE BEST WEB SITE in the F%$#ING WWW!!!!

I thought I had the flu and might go sick tonight at work, but now I feel great and I can't wait to post this story on the Engineering notice boards tonight at work. Excellent news!!

Kind regards John


New medicine?

'I thought I had the flu and might go sick tonight at work, but now I feel great and I can't wait to post this story on the Engineering notice boards tonight at work.'

Yes, folks, gather 'round--get 'yer 9/11 Truth cold and flu remedy! Accept no substitutes!

This is just very fake.

This is just very fake.

This does not deserve to be on the

front page. C'mon.


Well it looks like it is not a hoax. I stand corrected. If Virgin actually starts playing this on flights, (just with the idea that it may upset passengers to see a documentary about planes crashing into buildings) I will be very surprised.

The usual suspects in the MSM, when they catch wind of this, will go apeshit.

Hmmm ...

Is there a link to the material?

Isn't 'Virgin' airways owned by Richard Branson?

The man is a fearless maverick - much like Mark Cuban.

This would be a major coup. Time will tell.

Although given the subject matter, one might think broadcast of such a film might be inappropriate during airline flights.

Think about this, no Airline

Think about this, no Airline is EVER going to have as an “In Flight Movie” something to do with 9/11. What’s next “Flight 93” to add "balance" to LC? I'm sure the passengers will feel very comfortable viewing airline-hijack-terrorist films.....

I understand everyone's skepticism

and this may be a hoax.

But Mercury Media seems to distribute to airlines:

And they list Louder than Words as a producer client:

They also claim credit for the popularity of LC2: "Recent success’s include LOOSE CHANGE 2, the controversial 9/11 documentary which as swept the world" See

Moreover, my friend who gave me the tip learned of Mercury Media through Dylan Avery.

So it might be a hoax, but maybe not ...

So it might be a hoax, but maybe not ...

why post it before being sure?

Physics/Science/Mathematics do not lie, only people do.
9/11 was an INSIDE JOB

it's not a hoax

it's on the Virgin website!

Good Post.

Nothing wrong with a little optimism from time to time. We'll find out soon enough.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

I am all for truth and

I am all for truth and everything....

But I do NOT want to see this on my flight X_X


Help me shout 9/11 articles on:

Why not try to get this on

Hoax or no hoax ... it might get people interested in finding out more about Loose Change.

this is old news

24/03/07 Virgin Atlantic Pockets Loose Change

Virgin Atlantic have become the first airline to buy Louder Than Words’ controversial 9/11 documentary Loose Change 2.

The film, which has been broadcast in over 20 countries, states the official version of events that day were manufactured and that the American government was behind attacks.

Patricia Hickey, sales manager at Mercury, was delighted: “We are thrilled that Virgin Atlantic have the foresight to acquire such an important film. Hopefully more airlines will follow.”

Too good to be true...hoax.

Too good to be true...hoax. It has to be - not to mention that it's just bad business relations & PR. Imagine how mortified and shocked the sheep would be as they deplane afterwards. It would ruin their vacations and you can't have that.

Look at the post above yours...

I believe this was on their site a month ago...

It is NOT a hoax

Waiting on confirmation from Dylan

we shall see what he says

Mercury Media are involved with Loose Change Final Cut

Mercury Media is Tim Sparke's company:

And Tim is the "executive producer of Loose Change Final Cut. " It mentions this at the end of an article he had published in The Guardian not long ago:,,2011845,00.html

So this is great news, so long as Virgin Atlantic don't change their minds.

Time will tell...

But be careful. They might just be trying to flank the Movement and find another way to take control. If things like this start to happen for us we need to get LOUDER (we need to do that anyway), not rest on our laurels. No matter who is talking Truth in the MSM, we need to continue to be active, and stay in control of the Movement. Don't get complacent and think someone else has "got this" for you.

"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without." - Buddha
"What you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it." - Gandhi

Absolutely, I agree 100%

DRG is doing his thing, the Loose Change guys are doing their things, the scientists are doing their things, the families and first responders are doing their things . . .

we ALL have to do our own thing, and work as hard as we can at pushing for 9/11 truth and justice.

Think about it

An inflight movie featuring airliners crashing into buildings.

This is a non-starter. Nothing to do with the politics of it.

Confirmed on Virgin Atlantic documentary listings

Loose Change 2 in-flight has been confirmed!

Morgantown 9/11 Truth
The Eleventh Day of Every Month


What does that mean in response to my comment, which was simply confirming?


no not your comment, just the fact that its been confirmed.

whoever thinks its a good idea to entertain your airline passengers by showing a video about airline terrorism orchestrated by our own government, may have their priorities a bit skewed.

i wouldnt want to watch LC while flying. i hate flying. who thinks people actually want to think about remote controlled planes crashing into buildings while they're flying??

i just think its a terrible idea. why doesnt Virgin throw some money at Final Cut so that it can show in as many mainstream theaters as possible?

Morgantown 9/11 Truth
The Eleventh Day of Every Month

this isnt about making

this isnt about making people feel good or safe. this isnt about what people want. this is about waking people up. will LC2E make them nervous? sure, maybe some people but they sure as fuck wont forget the film. and in the end that IS the point.

I hear what you're saying but..

there's a fine line between waking someone up and just getting them mad--at YOU, the messenger.

Shocking people into action only works when they have the means to do something, or a clear idea of what needs to be done. Otherwise you WILL get the opposit effect(s)--blame the messenger, denial, etc. Shocking/scaring people without showing them what they can do actually makes matters WORSE--they feel doubly powerless and defaut to what powerless people tend to do--blame the messenger, denial, etc. And the fact they're a captive audiance in flight just reeks of manipulation.

I would feel a little less worried if I had some confidence that the movie pointed people in the direction of action, and what needs to be done at the end. But so far, the LC crew is very good at making a splash, but not so much at dirrection. Yes, we should dirrect ourselves, but it helps to have a clear idea where to start.

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

What should they show...

If they showed the typical propaganda...

I.e. muslim terrorists... 24 or many of the films currently out portraying the official line, it would probably make you more paranoid, looking around the plane for possible "non-white" arab looking suspects.

I can only speak for myself, but in the days and weeks after 9/11, the MSM propaganda did a good job on me...

Every time I heard a plane overhead, it affected me, anytime I went in a skyscraper, I wanted a parachute...

I suppose they could just show brain numbing films like "Bridget Jones" or anything by Hugh Grant...

I too am not really keen on flying, even before 9/11, but having LC available would not change a thing...

Unless of course the plane was only 25% capacity, most of the other passengers looked like spooks, there was a hi-jack drill onboard and we were being redirected to a military base for emergency landing...

If I was not in on the plan, I would be sh!^ing myself !!!

Best wishes


right on. no, i respect you guys opinion, i just wouldnt be into it at all.
actually, a part of me is kind of excited at the aspect that people will be seeing it this way.

but for the most part, i dont think its all that cool to show it on an airplane.
im conflicted.

The Eleventh Day of Every Month

you don't get it

on Virgin, you actually have a CHOICE in what to watch. Loose Change 2 will just be one option of many on your personal TV screen.

If passengers feel the movie is "not appropriate", they can change the channel.

Thanks for that clairification

I haven't flown for years, so I wouldn't know. ;-)

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

Thanks, Aaron, and

do you know the difference between "tv" and "movies" in Virgin-Atlantic's listings?

Actually, It's a great idea...

When you watch a film on a plane, with headphones on, you really take it in.

It's no worst than watching "towering inferno" in a high rise hotel room...

The truth should be able to be seen everywhere... LC2E and 9/11 Mysteries, that would cover you for about half of a London to New York trip...

What would be more worrying is taking the "red pill" on the plane :-)

Getting on non the wiser, and getting off wide awake.

As long as the title mentions it's about the 9/11 attacks, I see no problems.

Best wishes

Hey Aaron, why not

push some Infowars movies on Virgin while they are willing - hit them with TerrorStorm and Martial Law.

Keep it up Infowars! And come say hi here at the blog more often.


I had my fingers crossed on this post, but it is absolutely unbelievable and astounding that these people at Virgin Airlines etc. have the balls, guts, or whatever you call it, to show such truth bearing documentaries on their flights and to their customers. How GREAT!

We will have to follow this story as it goes and see what the reactions are. I'm still astounded though. Maybe there is hope after all. Maybe our work is paying off. And if it is paying off then I'm ready to do more!!

seriously, and not just LC2E

seriously, and not just LC2E but 9/11Mysteries AND Orwell Rolls in His Grave as well. obviously somebody at a pretty high position in Virgin has their head screwed on straight and has some real guts.

I'm blown away -

I really thought this to be a joke played on us ...

P.S. - How on earth do you edit your previous posts? I didn't see an "edit" button.


once somebody replied to your post, you can no longer change history and edit it


It sounds like Richard Branson is the real deal and answers to no one but his conscience. Cheers, Mate!

somewhat sympathetic article on Loose Change:

Burning Questions
Conspiracy videos like Loose Change have been recieving a lot of attention on the internet and other media - is it freedom of speech or harmful propaganda?

In America we have become accustomed to a life of privilege. Liberties that we consider to be the intrinsic rights of every human are not seen as such in other nations. Here we have the privilege to basically speak, write, believe or do whatever we wish.

This is what makes our country so beautiful.
There are dozens of websites, books and videos all claiming that the "official" story of what happened that fateful day is not the whole story. They range from the obviously absurd to the seemingly possible. Some claim that our own government plotted the attacks or allowed them to take place, while others focus on the questionable post-9/11 policies and actions taken by the government. All of them point to motives surrounding money and power. But it is the fact that these theories exist, and are allowed to exist, that is important. This is not about patriotism or loyalty or allegiance; or even lack thereof. This is about the freedom to ask the tough questions and the freedom to further question the given answers. Again, this is what makes America so special.

In short, Loose Change claims that 9/11 was an inside job, conceived and perpetrated by certain members of our government, all with corporate interests in mind.

Naturally this is a viewpoint that is not easy to swallow. Many feel that theories like these denigrate the people who died in the attacks. Bermas and others have been called liars, traitors and America-haters. In dealing with such a sensitive subject, criticisms like these are both understandable and expected.

Despite all this, Bermas believes in his work, as grim as it may be.

We will not dissect the individual points and claims made in Loose Change for several reasons. First and foremost, there are just far too many, each with implications far too serious to discuss in this brief forum. About this, you must make up your own mind and come to your own decisions. Even Bermas does not want you to accept his theories and claims on his word alone. He'd be a hypocrite in suggesting someone to fully and quickly subscribe to the content found in Loose Change, just as he feels is done too easily with the government/mainstream media's version of the events.
"You know, I'm just a young guy trying to do the right thing," he says. "It's good to see real academics getting behind it. Then on the other side you have these people that are pseudo-academics, basically philosophers who try to hijack the scholar movement and say stupid things like no planes hit the towers. They just discredit the actual science. So you've got to watch out for that too."

In talking with Bermas it becomes clear that his motives are genuine. Usually that is all you can ask for in talking to someone about this issue. He may be totally correct, he could be severely mistaken, or he could land somewhere in between, but the overriding sense you get from Bermas is that he only wants the truth.

So where does this all end? According to Bermas, and assuming the horrifying premise presented by Loose Change is even remotely accurate, there is a solution.

"Well I'm not in this to lose it," he says. "The first thing we need to do is we need to somehow get subpoena power into a committee of family members [of the victims] who want to ask the tough questions."

This suggestion is similar to what a group of 9/11 widows have undertaken over the last few years. Their plight has been documented in a video called 9/11: Press for Truth ( Though the views in this documentary do not completely line up with those presented in Loose Change, Avery and Bermas both endorse the video and support the women's quest.

"Hopefully we'll find the people with the stomach to do this and then basically we find and prosecute these people from within," Bermas says.
So become informed. You may decide that Bermas and Loose Change are onto something, or you may decide that they are utterly misguided. Question the conspiracy theories. Question the government. Just never stop questioning. Because when the questions stop, the caring stops, and the truth is decided for us.

If this is not a hoax...

Then Richard Branson is my new HERO!


Stand for SOMETHING...or you'll fall for ANYTHING!!
