Yukoner tackles 9/11 Korean Air 'hijackings' mystery

Yukoner tackles 9/11 Korean Air 'hijackings' mystery
2 flights that had been transmitting hijack signals landed in Whitehorse

When Max Fraser started collecting footage and stories about how Sept. 11, 2001, played out in the Yukon capital of Whitehorse, he set out to make a point-of-view documentary about the terrifying spectre of 2 supposedly hijacked jumbo jets landing in — or on — Whitehorse.

It's hard to forget the images of an American Airlines jet slamming into the World Trade Center in New York City, followed by a United Airlines jet hitting the second tower minutes later. The images were beamed to television sets around the world.

What Fraser ended up with is the mysterious tale of how Korean Air Flight 085, bound for New York City, came to land at the then-Whitehorse International Airport at 11:54 a.m. that day, instead of descending at one of the many better-equipped Alaskan runways it passed on its way.

'Nowhere else in the world on 9/11 was a community under an evacuation order and nowhere else were emergency authorities told to prepare for a mass casualty incident involving a hijacked airliner.'—Max Fraser, filmmaker

And even more mysterious is why 2 Korean planes were transmitting a hijack "squawk" (a satellite code that can be discreetly set by a pilot to alert authorities on the ground of a hostile takeover), even though all was well on board the flights.

In response, American and Canadian fighter jets were deployed to accompany those planes to the Whitehorse airport.

Fraser was one of the many parents scrambling to find their children after learning that every student in Whitehorse was being evacuated from school, and that everyone in the capital had to get away from the city.

That inspired the local filmmaker to make the 45-minute documentary titled Never Happen Here — the Whitehorse 9/11 Story. It premiered Sunday night at the Dawson City Short Film Festival.

The film was a way of answering at least some of the many questions he had in the weeks, months and years following the deadliest terrorist attack ever committed on North American soil.

"Nowhere else in the world on 9/11 was a community under an evacuation order and nowhere else were emergency authorities told to prepare for a mass casualty incident involving a hijacked airliner," Fraser said.

"What we experienced, what we went through, is a story that should be told the world over."

He began by interviewing other parents who rushed to Whitehorse Elementary School as government buildings emptied and the streets filled with people trying to get out of town.

He also filed a number of access to information requests to the Canadian and American governments, trying to piece together the timeline of what was happening in the air above.

He began with what Whitehorse residents knew that brilliantly sunny day — that 2 potentially hijacked 747 jets were headed their way.

This belief was based on reports from the RCMP, who were at the airport waiting for the airliners.

The RCMP, in turn, were working with information from North American Aerospace Defence Command, which was tracking the Korean Air passenger jets.

One of the double-decker planes first raised an alarm at 9:06 a.m. PT, three hours and 21 minutes after American Airlines Flight 11 plowed into the north tower of the World Trade Center.

That was when the United States Federal Aviation Administration was informed that a text message containing the international code for hijacking — HJK — had passed between the cockpit of Flight 085 and Korean Air's ground control at 8:09 a.m. Although it was, and still is, unclear which end was sending the message, it was remarkable as it was the only such text message sent that day.

It was also remarkable for those monitoring the plane at the time because when ground control spoke to the plane's pilot, he reported all was well.

Meanwhile in the U.S., then-vice-president Dick Cheney had authorized his country's war planes to "intercept civilian tracks of interest and shoot them down if they seem to be threatening a U.S. city. Clearance to shoot is authorized to save lives on the ground."

In other words: If the Air Force brass believed a plane full of people was going crash into another American building, they were to blow it out of the sky.

The 230 souls on board Flight 085 had no idea they were being tracked by two fighter jets with shoot-to-kill authorization, and only the crew knew what had happened in New York City to justify such an order.

In the three years Fraser spent investigating the orders and communications bouncing around North America that day, he has not discovered why the HJK texts were sent, but he did uncover an even bigger mystery: Why did the FAA order Flight 085 to squawk 7500 — an unequivocal hijacking distress signal?

Using actual audio footage obtained through his information requests to the American military, Fraser shows the incredulous Korean Air pilot asking ground control to repeat what must have been an unbelievable order.

In the weeks and months after 9/11, once everyone knew Flight 085 carried nothing more threatening than airplane food, officials said the hijack signal was the result of language barriers — the pilot didn't speak very good English, they said, and wires got crossed.

"That's not true," Fraser said bluntly at a press screening of his film last Thursday afternoon. "Anyone flying a 747 anywhere in the world speaks English."

It is not a statement based on assumption. The retired RCMP commander who interviewed the pilot once the plane was grounded says the same thing to Fraser's camera.

Fraser weaves these surprising revelations with the recollections of parents and students of Whitehorse Elementary, who describe the confusion and terror of being stuck in traffic as the planes headed toward downtown.

Fraser's movie leaves the watcher with more questions than answers about the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

Why did NORAD officials direct supposedly hijacked planes to Whitehorse when they could have ordered them to land in any number of Alaskan airfields?

Who sent the hijack text messages and why?

Why were the pilots ordered to squawk 7500?

Why have officials been so reticent to explain their actions related to the Korean Air flights?

The questions aren't answered, but they are certainly worth asking.

For me the obvious context

is that Canadian elements of NORAD are part of the false flag and the cover up. We will not find out what was deliberate until the parties are under oath with some partial amnesty for the truth.

KAL 85 possibly a "live-fly" hijack in a NORAD exercise

If you want to learn more about this highly suspicious flight, check out my previous blog entry, "Was Korean Airlines Flight 85 a Simulated Hijack in a 9/11 Training Exercise?":

Somethings stinks here to the sky.

In contrast to the pilots of all four hijacked planes (flight 11, 175, 77, 93), the pilots of Korean air flight 085 dialed the standard distress signal “HJCK” and the hijack code 7500. The reason should be, according to the pilots, that air traffic controllers in the FAA-center should have demanded that code from them.

It cannot be just a misunderstanding, because on September 6 was a training exercise, where "terrorists" hijacked a Korean Airlines Flight, a Boeing 747, flying from Seoul to Anchorage-- "in other words, a plane resembling KAL 85."
Same plane, same destination, same Airline, same incidant. These are too much coincidences.

I do not know, what conclusion I should draw.

Just another indication that we were all, willingly, duped.

To speculate again:

Perhaps these two Korean planes were "backups", or were slated to be part of the actual 9/11 "hijack" scenario.. and those who were running the show decided against going ahead with these planes' involvement.

The fact that the hijack alert was sounded without the knowledge of the pilots suggests that the alert was relayed from somewhere else, ie from neither of these two planes. This bears some similarity with the report of the transponder signal being interrupted. Would it be more likely that the transponder signals were also terminated from somewhere else?

If these were bona fide hijackings, as alleged, then it would be safe to assume that in the general melee and sense of urgency/panic in the cockpit, one of the first priorities for a hijacking team would be to control the airplane and aim it directly towards its intended target BEFORE the USAF showed up on its wingtips to intercept.... ie, a course of action that takes the standard jet-scramble procedures into account? This standard protocol not only had a very fine track record, but it was something of which the alleged hijackers would have been sharply aware.

This direct "get to the targets ASAP" approach didn't happen ..... two of the 4 planes went on a joy-ride way out west before turning back towards targets very close to their point of origin. (WTF ?!!) Did the "hijackers" want to play cat and mouse? Were they not so uncommitted to the success of their operation that they went out of their way to try and fail? But amazingly, they did, by the official account, 75% succeed.

The whole "19 hijackers" scenario makes to little sense that it is hard to acknowledge that there were *ANY* human hijackers of ANY of the planes. The "suicide bomber" explanation is so convenient, as the impacts were so violent, and the buildings' collapses made sure that the majority, if not all, the of the physical evidence was obliterated. (Then, the rest of the evidence was hastily removed or destroyed in the wake of the attacks). I have to ask the obvious question: Is there *any* VERIFIED evidence with a certifiably reliable chain of custody, which would stand up in a real US court of law, that places any fundamentalist Islamic person on any of these planes?

The fact that Muslims and Arabs have been as assigned as the US "National Piñata" since the demise of the perceived "communist threat" in the early 1990s, made the "Muslims and Arabs did it" package an easy sell to a preconditioned public by a complicit media.. and the majority lapped it up before the facts started coming in.

Just another 2c.. Now watch the negative scores come in, courtesy of that final paragraph...

the long straight run

away from the target could be indicative of a pause in the plan
on the day of 4 planes and 4 buildings
one of the planes was quite late taking off (timeline in crossing the rubicon)
perhaps the pause in the plan was to allow the plan to resume with 4 planes for the 4 buildings
not sure of times - could be a lead

All of this is very reminiscent

of the behavior of KAL flight 007 on Sept. 3, 1983, when it "went off course" while its radio transmissions were being made by a companion 747 flying to Seoul. 007 continued over Sakhalin, where the official story says, it was ruthlessly shot down by Soviet planes, killing all 269 aboard. Many questions have been asked about the strange sequence of events and absence of wreckage anywhere near where the plane is said to have crashed.
Frenchman Michel Brun wrote the most interesting book on the subject, "Incident at Sakhalin," in which he shows with substantial evidence, that the plane flew on another 400 miles unharmed and crashed off the west coast of Japan and speculates that a dozen or more American military planes were destroyed in what he concludes was a large incursion into a sensitive Soviet military area..

Controlling planes all over the place - a way to intimidate

To terrorize is to intimidate, and to intimidate on the scale of a 9/11 size inside job you need to scare the crap out a lot of powerful people who would otherwise object. I think that certain components of the events of 9/11 and subsequent events (see http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2009/10/24/nwa-pilots/) involve demonstrating to politicians, civilians and military personnel that unidentified parties can take over the flight plan of planes on a global scale. There is virtually no one of power or importance anywhere in the world who does not travel by air. Many messages were sent on 9/11 and not all were intended for the general public. A major component of those messages was "We have this power".

I think that the demonstrated remote control of commercial airliners on 9/11 is an evolution and extension of "smart bomb" technology, which had its coming out party and blatant showing off by top military brass (recall those videos shown repeatedly on national TV of bombs being delivered to precise locations) during the Gulf War. Same technology, same people, same use for the purpose of controlling oil fields and oil transportation.
