The Military Industrial Entertainment Complex™ Revealed, The Art & Craftiness Of Fake Wars: FIGHTER JETS 'R' FAKE - TOP GUN FUN

Fighter Jet Footage Is Fake!
An airplane has to use the wing flaps (called ailerons) to maneuverer.
Compare the two animated sequences below. See the problem? The Fighter Jet is a Hollywood Special effect. It has to be. The wing flaps do not move. There is no way this jet could maneuver without the ailerons moving.

This Article Questions Whether aircraft carriers are a long standing historical hoax & Just shadows on the screen, a product of the The Military Industrial Entertainment Complex™ Or Whether they are real. This is the first of a series of articles. Part Two will examine the mythic Bell Aerospace Jet Pack and the History of Jet Fighter Barrel Rolling, of course Stanley Kubrik has to be involved in this next part of the narrative we will be examining. The mythic jet pack has appeared at thee Olympics, in a James Bond Film and on Lost in Space, the old TV Series from the 1960's.

Please listen to this clip, just the part of the lecture where Alan Watts discusses the lie and myth of history.

Do You Think You Are Free From Propaganda? Do you think the NEWS and Hollywood are independent from the Government?

Ever hear about The Defense Information School? “The Defense Information School or DINFOS, is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) school located at Fort George G. MeadeMaryland. DINFOS fulfills the Department of Defense's need for an internal corps of professional journalists, broadcasters, and public affairs professionals.” This was formed in 1946! The purpose of this school is to brainwash our minds. Don’t believe us? Please keep reading or check out the article index. Please keep an open mind, everything we think we know is probably wrong, we will explain why we make this claim. This is but the tip of the proverbial iceberg.


Did you ever read or hear about any of these other absurd stories about the ‘War to End all Wars’? What we think of wars and history is more lie than not. Did you know film makers have been faking so-called real war footage for years?  Ever read or hear about the Ghost Army and all the rest? Please keep reading this article.






Please excuse any typos you may come across, we will fix them as we find them, spell check is evil, Thank You, AAMorris Staff.

Do You Want To Know Why It Is Fake?

The old 1960's television show Get Smart was telling us all what to do. Maxwell Smart works for CONTROL - a Government spy agency that exists to defeat KAOS. The secret that we must Get Smart about is that both sides are controlled opposition and work for the same Multimedia Beast that controls and dominates our lives and minds. This ages old control mechanism has taken many forms. It began a long time ago on an estate not so far away...

The first incarnation of the Yellow Beast was the Hoax of Royalty. Of course there is no such thing. This Noble lie must die!

The concept of Royalty is by definition the clear crime of protection racketeering. That's the meaning of the pirate flag and the Vampire Lords who grow fat and immortal feasting off the blood of their unwitting livestock.

When we peasants and rising middle class got tired of the royals protection hoax, the royals cooked up the controlled opposition called organized religion.

Obviously the Vatican and The Church of England are run by royalty of one kind or another from top down. This system allowed and allows the royals too mingle with us commoners. This is how we can join them and move up in rank, like in the game of chess. We pawns can get promoted!

This idea was and is always true with whatever system we are looking at.

Hollywood, The Music Industry, Government, Banking, Corporate and other institutions exist as the result of this long standing racket.

The university system and royal societies and all the museums and all the rest are the royal and elite's tools of social reinforcement,

These are the bars of our mental prison. We are supposed to be intimidated by all the art.

We are to be awed by the majesty of their great work. Yet it was artists and not the royals who would really and truly perform miracles. It's one thing to play dress up and make up languages and plays. It's another to actually engineer the electrical grid and to build great palaces and ships and create manufacturing processes and all the rest. Further the actual physical labor was performed by most of our ancestors. This gilded prison is of our own making, built with the blood and bones of our own kin.


Religion Was One of The Original Forms Of Yellow Journalism As Was The Traveling Snake Oil Sales Racket.

Another form of yellow journalism was and is The Military.

The Royalty That Runs The Show, Owns The Castle Walls

& The Costumed Robes

These Are The Ones Who Created The Idea of War In The First Place - Humans Are Not Really War Like - This is a Lie!

The Royals Become The Top Military Generals & They Run The Wars From Top Down & Still Do Today

Here is how and at what level these so-called royals mingle with us 'normals'.

They Seek To Put the Fear of The Devil Into Us So We Think We Need The Protection of The Castle Walls and Men in Theatrical Stage Robes.

We Must Contniue As Wage Slaves Working So They Can Play War-Games With Toys And Dress Up on Stages & Screens and otherwise play make believe.

All of this is yellow journalism.

Joseph Campbell defines yellow press newspapers as having daily multi-column front-page headlines covering a variety of topics, such as sports and scandal, using bold layouts (with large illustrations and perhaps color), heavy reliance on unnamed sources, and unabashed self-promotion. The term was extensively used to describe certain major New York City newspapers around 1900 as they battled for circulation.[3]

Frank Luther Mott defines yellow journalism in terms of five characteristics:[4]

  1. scare headlines in huge print, often of minor news
  2. lavish use of pictures, or imaginary drawings
  3. use of faked interviews, misleading headlines, pseudoscience, and a parade of false learning from so-called experts
  4. emphasis on full-color Sunday supplements, usually with comic strips
  5. dramatic sympathy with the "underdog" against the system.

How To Tell Yellow Journalism Lies


Are we surrounded by minions? It sure feels like it. We like them. They are really cute and designed for commercial business. These sweet little yellow products just can't help but fly off the shelves. We are lucky to have infinite supply online.

We know that at installations like the Defense Information School, the military trains agents, actors, voice over people, radio disc jockeys, comedians, journalists and behind the scenes production staff. This is where yellow journalism techniques are taught to trained agents who have security clearances. All news media is nothing but yellow journalism. We can see how things really work now. Yellow Journalism is the method for all of this. These sensationalized techniques really date back to the earliest days of religion, obviously. These are basic military style propaganda techniques designed to win a so-called war, before ever having to fire a shot.

The need or motive to fake news and wars dates back to the earliest days of our so-called civilization. Medieval castle walls were sold as protection to the mass of peasantry. The origins of our modern Mafia run global culture emerges from the shadow and into the light. We can use even wikipedia to reveal the truth. All we need to do is keep following a literal web linked trail and we will end up seeing how the United States is nothing but a corporate racket, an unlawful and unnatural front for the banking and currency industry, that represents old European moneyed interests who had originally funded this economic enterprise in the first place, or so they think. This funding was ill gotten gain in the first place of course.

We would call these people the royals. The Queen of England would seem to be the Empress of the World, at least on paper. The Treaty of Paris from 1783 makes for the proverbial eye opening read. The monarch retained more rights than you might know. The United States government is in debt to the royals. This body does not work for us. It works against us. Politicians swear an oath to defend it not us. They swear to uphold the Constitution which means the Government not the people. This is and was a simple bait and switch tactic. We The People, quickly became the Founding Fathers, and a new kind of elite. These men founded their version of a racket. We call this layer of extra governance and crime, the United States Government. Television is its most important medium and the on air talking head is the weapon of mass mental destruction that the government uses to control all of us. This same weaponized culture is online. In fact it is pretty much everywhere in our artificial world. We are so used to it we do not see it. We are like the fish in water who do now know they are in water. Better still we are the tadpole in a pot of water that is about to start boiling.

As it turns out, we are brain washed member of a cargo cult.

There will never not be a so-called National Debt clock ticking away. We get the long con now. We are all economic wage slaves in an inhumane system that is simply  built on lies. This is the racket and this is the crime. War and other false narratives are literally manufactured and promoted with the intent of creating a false impression in our minds. We have to believe we need all the layers of government to protect us from harm. This is why these bodies craft and exaggerate every event that fits this meme. The news media is state run and staffed with military trained minions with security clearances. This is how the show is run and it is run this way online too. Alex Jones is not alone. More minions lurk and the real purpose is to get us to do their job for them.

Today, the internet is filled with alt media which emulate the practices of the old. Nothing changes. Seemingly amateur web personas might be part of the show. These fellow 'truth seekers' might be no more than dis-information agents, whether on the pay roll or not. We are encouraged to play gatekeepers to ourselves and others and in this manner we are unwitting pawns of the control system.

Minion School

"The Defense Information School, or DINFOS, is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) school located at Fort George G. MeadeMaryland. DINFOS fulfills the Department of Defense's need for an internal corps of professional journalists, broadcasters, and public affairs professionals.[1] Members from all branches of the U.S. military, DoD civilians and international military personnel attend DINFOS for training in public affairs, print journalismphotojournalismphotographytelevision and radio broadcastinglithography, equipment maintenance and various forms of multimedia. The American Council on Education recommends college credit for most DINFOS courses."

"Leadership courses

The Public Affairs Leadership Department is one of four departments in DINFOS.

The Public Affairs Leadership Department offers the Qualification Course (PAQC), the Joint Expeditionary Course (JEPAC), the Joint Intermediate Course (JIPAC), and the Joint Senior Course (JSPAC). Courses are offered to military officers, senior enlisted personnel, Department of Defense civilians, and members of coalition partners from around the world who are preparing for or already in billets of public affairs leadership.

The Public Affairs Qualification Course (PAQC) provides those who are new to the public affairs field the fundamentals of public affairs to include military-media relations, the different mediums used to facilitate the flow of accurate and timely information, and how to conduct public affairs operations in support of the command's mission. In addition, the students are taught the fundamentals of news, journalism, and how to write and copy-edit in accordance with the Associated Press (AP) Styleguide.

The Public Affairs Expeditionary Course is a ten-day, intensive follow-on course to PAQC. Students are expected to have a basic working knowledge and experience in PA as the course is focused more on the application of PA skills in a field environment.

Journalism courses

Journalism classes feature basic writing skills and include a headline style known at the school as "headline-ese", a total style for writing and developing headlines. Students are taught a variety of writing styles and formats such as news, sports and feature writing.

Photojournalism courses focus on composition, exposure, and general camera operation skills. Flash photography is introduced in the basic photography course. Students learn advanced photo-editing, composition and other techniques not taught in basic photojournalism classes.

For military print journalists, DINFOS offers the 12-week Basic Public Affairs Specialist Course (BPASC), a 26-week online BPASC and three-week Editors' Course. U.S. Army students are awarded the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) designator of 46Q, and U.S. Marine Corps students are awarded the MOS 4341 Combat Correspondent.

For military Broadcast journalists, DINFOS offers the Broadcast Communication Specialist Course. Broadcasters begin by attending several weeks of BWAS - Basic Writing and Announcing Skills. If the class requirements are met, students may continue into Radio and Television broadcasting classes. U.S. Army students are awarded the MOS designator of 46R.

Students in all courses hail from all branches of the U.S. military and reserve as well as International military students.

Equipment maintenance courses

The Basic Television Equipment Maintenance (BTVEM) course includes apprentice level instruction in the repair of all types of studio and transmission equipment. Students also learn how to maintain the AVID non-linear digital editing systems. The U.S. Army MOS 25R and the Air Force AFSC 2E134 is awarded upon completion. Since December 2006 Air Force class graduated, DINFOS no longer trains Air Force personnel in the BTVEM course.

The Broadcast Radio and Television Systems Maintenance course is an advanced level course where students learn the ins and outs of American Forces Radio and Television Service (AFRTS) engineering standards and practices.

Both maintenance courses are nationally accredited by the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE). Upon completion of either course with an average GPA of at least 85%, students are certified by the SBE as broadcast technologists (CBT)."


Nothing Changes.

The Way The Military is Used Today is The Way It Has Always Been

The people who do not want to work have to get others to do the work. This is the basic pyramid scam. This is where the crime that is government and the racket it uses to run this show comes from. We are the wage slaves. We need to be managed. The people on the top play dress up and pay for art that is meant to define the boundaries of our individual minds.

These crafted artifacts define the boundaries of imagination. 

We create prisons of our own choosing and we also imprison each other. The purpose of the minion is to get us to do their work for them. We are to emulate their behavior. They are to be our shepherds and guides. Our trusted news friends and so on.

The people on top can interact with those lower down the structure through institutions like the clergy and the military. In this way the so-called social classes  mingle. It doesn't matter who has blue blood and who doesn't. It's all nonsense anyway. It is just made up.

History is a lie. We have to think we need to be protected from war. War is the lie. War has been used to confuse us and to keep us behind the proverbial castle walls trapped as wage slaves for centuries.

Humans are not warlike like we've been told. There's plenty of room for everyone and there always has been and most of us would rather be left alone. We could have been left to live out our days like the mythic Hobbits do.

Religion was once the only form of education for the masses. Then the Bible was mass produced by printing press and the so-called New World was open for business. The early colonists were free to live off they land as they desired and for a brief moment there was a Land of The Free and Home of The Brave. America was real and did mean Freedom. 

Recent history is the story about how that all came to an end, step by step.


“Stealth” (2005), directed by Mr. Cohen, is a ridiculously bad movie. The plotting, story and characters are as childish as a Chuck Norris action flick from the ‘80’s. Its central theme, the struggle between humanity and robotics, is as old as science fiction itself, and this garbage-film adds nothing to the mythology of this classic theme. But there are some really good visual effects in the picture, and with a bit of directorial restraint, the film could have easily been something unforgettable.

The most successful visual effects shots from “Stealth” are those of the futuristic stealth bombers landing, taxi’ing, and taking off from seabound aircraft carriers.

For all intents and purposes, these shots look and feel completely photoreal. There are no tip offs or visual cues to lead the audience to believe that these shots are anything other than natural, in-camera work. For all we know, the filmmakers got their hands on some amazing new military planes, and is cooperating with the military on the making of the movie. Of course, the reality is that these futuristic jets don’t exist in the real world.

Completely realistic CG planes are nothing new; however, what makes these aircraft carrier shots in “Stealth” special is that the background photography is extremely naturalistic. The camera moves effortlessly around the planes; the shots don’t ‘feel’ like effects shots, since the camera moves are part of the film. Even the shots of the fighters taking off and landing have pleasant camera choreography. Probably the single biggest advancement in the quality and plausibility of visual effects shots in the digital age is the relative simplicity of camera matchmoving complicated live-action camera moves. The ability to recover the precise placement and pan/tilt information from the film camera has allowed visual effects shots to graduate away from lockoffs and stilted motion control moves. Now, it’s completely normal for a visual effects film, even one with hundreds or even thousands of shots, to not have a single true lockoff or motion control setup.

“Lieutenant General William Wilson "Buffalo Bill" Quinn (November 1, 1907 – September 11, 2000) was a United States Army officer, who served in intelligence during World War II. Born in Crisfield, Somerset, Maryland and a 1933 graduate of West Point, Quinn retired as a lieutenant general on March 1, 1966 as the commanding general of the Seventh United States Army. He died in Washington, DC at Walter Reed Army Hospital at 92 years old.”

“Quinn participated in the Battle of the Bulge, Operation Dragoon and on January 1, 1945 he was part of Operation Northwind.

Quinn was in Korea from 1951 to 1952 and in August 1951 Quinn was wounded in Korea. While in Korea he won and was awarded the Silver Star, Legion of Merit and the Bronze Star with the "V" Device. He was also in the Battle of Inchon. While he was in Korea he was the commanding Officer of the 17th Infantry Regiment which was part of the 7th Infantry Division (the 17th Infantry was, and still is, nicknamed "the Buffalo’s”)”



"They drove their vehicles back and forth through local towns to create the illusion of heavy traffic. They visited cafés and spun fictitious stories for whatever spies lurked in the shadows. ‘We were turned loose in town,’ said John Jarvie, a corporal in the camouflage unit who went on to a career as an art director, ‘and told to go to the pub, order some omelettes, and talk loose.’ They even went so far as to create fake command posts, and against all Army regulations staffed them with counterfeit commanders."


"Who first thought of building a pyramid, or of using gunpowder as a weapon? Who invented the wheel? Who, for that matter, came up with the idea of taking a movie camera into battle and turning a profit from the horrible realities of war? History offers no firm guidance on the first three questions, and is not entirely certain even on the fourth, although the earliest war films cannot have been shot much earlier than 1900. What we can say, fairly definitely, is that most of this pioneer footage tells us little about war as it was actually waged back then, and quite a lot about the enduring ingenuity of filmmakers.

That is because almost all of it was either staged or faked, setting a template that was followed for years afterwards with varying degrees of success."

"The history of role-playing games begins with an earlier tradition of role-playing, which combined with the rulesets of fantasy wargames in the 1970s to give rise to the modern role-playing game.[1] A role-playing game (RPG) is a type of game in which the participants assume the roles of characters and collaboratively create stories. Participants determine the actions of their characters based on their characterization, and the actions succeed or fail according to a system of rules and guidelines. Within the rules, they may improvise freely; their choices shape the direction and outcome of the games.

Role-playing games are substantially different from competitive games such as ball games and card games. This has led to confusion among some non-players about the nature of fantasy gaming. The game Dungeons & Dragons was a subject of controversy in the 1980s when well-publicized opponents claimed it caused negative spiritual and psychological effects. Academic research has discredited these claims.[2] Some educators support role-playing games as a healthy way to hone reading and arithmetic skills.[3] Though role-playing has been accepted by some,[4] a few religious organizations continue to object.[5]

Media attention both increased sales and stigmatized certain games. In thirty years the genre has grown from a few hobbyists and boutique publishers to an economically significant part of the games industry, though grass-roots and small business involvement remains substantial. Games industry company Hasbro purchased fantasy game publisher Wizards of the Coast in 1998 for an estimated $325 million.

"In 16th century Europe, traveling teams of players performed a form of improvisational theatre known as the Commedia dell'arte, with stock situations, stock characters and improvised dialogue. In the 19th and early 20th century, many board games and parlour games such as the game Jury Box included elements of role-playing. Mock trials, model legislatures, and the "Theatre Games" created by Viola Spolin arose, in which players took on the roles of characters and improvised, but without the formalised rules which would characterise modern role-playing games.[7]

There is some evidence that assassin-style games may have been played in New York city by adults as early as 1920. A simple version in which an assassination was performed by saying, "You're dead," was mentioned in Harpo Marx's autobiography, Harpo Speaks!, in a section covering the 1920s.

In the 1960s, historical reenactment groups gave rise to "creative history" games, which probably originate with the founding of the Society for Creative Anachronism in Berkeley, California on May 1, 1966. A similar group, the Markland Medieval Mercenary Militia, began holding events on the University of Maryland, College Park in 1969. These groups were largely dedicated to accurately recreating medieval history and culture, however, with only mild fantasy elements, and were probably mostly influenced by historical re-enactment."


"The Pilot Who Blacks Out Last..."

Popular Science May 1941
Enter The Rat Race: Pilots Black Out When Performing Maneuvers.
How does this make any sense? First if a pilot blacked out, it’s game over.
Second, does the quote below make any sense?

"At Any Instant, He Is Likely To Pick Out A Target And Dive For It; And You've Got To Be Right There In Formation With Him."

Pilots have to be able to magically predict the future. This sounds like a literal recipe for disaster. 
This is too absurd for words. These are supposed to be high speed aircraft. This is impossible and literal cartoon thinking.

Is really the best the elite’s minions can do to keep the mass public in their place? This is for children.


Top Gun is a 1986 American action drama film directed by Tony Scott, and produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, in association with Paramount Pictures. The screenplay was written by Jim Cash and Jack Epps, Jr., and was inspired by an article titled "Top Guns" published in California magazine three years earlier.
The film stars Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, and Tom Skerritt. Cruise plays Lieutenant Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, a young Naval aviator aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. He and his Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) Nick "Goose" Bradshaw (Edwards) are given the chance to train at the Navy's Fighter Weapons School at Miramar in San Diego.
In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant"
The primary inspiration for the film was the article "Top Guns" by Ehud Yonay, from the May 1983 issue of California magazine, which featured aerial photography by then-Lieutenant Commander Charles "Heater" Heatley.[3] The article detailed the life of fighter pilots at the Naval Air Station Miramar in San Diego, self-nicknamed as "Fightertown USA". Numerous screenwriters allegedly turned down the project.[3] Bruckheimer and Simpson went on to hire Jim Cash and Jack Epps, Jr., to write the first draft. The research methods, by Epps, included an attendance at several declassified Top Gun classes at Miramar and gaining experience by being flown in an F-14. The first draft failed to impress Bruckheimer and Simpson, and is considered to be very different from the final product in numerous ways.[4]
Actor Matthew Modine turned down the role of LT Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (that went to Tom Cruise) because he felt the film's pro-military stance went against his politics.[5]
The producers wanted the assistance of the US Navy in production of the film. The Navy was influential in relation to script approval, which resulted in changes being made. The opening dogfight was moved to international waters as opposed to Cuba, the language was toned down, and a scene that involved a crash on the deck of an aircraft carrier was also scrapped.[6] Maverick's love interest was also changed from a female enlisted member of the Navy to a civilian contractor with the Navy, due to the US military's prohibition of fraternization between officers and enlisted personnel.[3] The "Charlie" character also replaced an aerobics instructor from an early draft as a love interest for Maverick after producers were introduced to Christine "Legs" Fox, a civilian mathematician employed by the Center for Naval Analyses as a specialist in Maritime Air Superiority (MAS), developing tactics for aircraft carrier defense.[7] Rear Admiral Pete "Viper" Pettigrew, a former Navy aviator, Vietnam War veteran, and Top Gun instructor served as a technical advisor on the film, and also made a cameo appearance in the film as a colleague of Charlie's.
Former Top Gun instructor pilot and Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham claimed to have been the inspiration for Pete Mitchell, although the film's producers have denied that the character was based on any specific Naval aviator.[8]

"The Navy made several aircraft from F-14 fighter squadron VF-51 Screaming Eagles (which Tom Skerritt mentions in the scene at his home) available for the film. Paramount paid as much as $7,800 per hour for fuel and other operating costs whenever aircraft were flown outside their normal duties. Shots of the aircraft carrier sequences were filmed aboard the USS Enterprise (CVN-65), showing aircraft from F-14 squadrons VF-114 Aardvarks and VF-213 Black Lions. The majority of the carrier flight deck shots were of normal aircraft operations and the film crew had to take what they could get, save for the occasional flyby which the film crew would request. During filming, director Tony Scott wanted to shoot aircraft landing and taking off, back-lit by the sun. During one particular filming sequence, the ship's commanding officer changed the ship's course, thus changing the light. When Scott asked if they could continue on their previous course and speed, he was informed by the commander that it cost $25,000 to turn the ship, and to continue on course. Scott wrote the carrier's captain a $25,000 check so that the ship could be turned and he could continue shooting for another five minutes."

Flying sequences from the movie Topgun without all the in-cockpit stuff

"Most of the sequences of the aircraft maneuvering over land were shot at NAS Fallon, in Nevada, using ground-mounted cameras. Air-to-air shots were filmed using a Learjet. Grumman, manufacturer of the F-14, was commissioned by Paramount Pictures to create camera pods to be placed upon the aircraft that could be pointed toward either the front or rear of the aircraft providing outside shots at high altitude."

"Renowned aerobatic pilot Art Scholl was hired to do in-flight camera work for the film. The original script called for a flat spin, which Scholl was to perform and capture on a camera on the aircraft. The aircraft was observed to spin through its recovery altitude, at which time Scholl radioed "I have a problem... I have a real problem". He was unable to recover from the spin and crashed his Pitts S-2 into the Pacific Ocean off the Southern California coast near Carlsbad on September 16, 1985. Neither Scholl's body nor his aircraft were recovered, leaving the official cause of the accident unknown.[11] Top Gun was dedicated to Scholl's memory.”


Air Force personal and family were seeming;y treated as lab rats for this bit of cultural conditioning. The Military base with its security protocols makes for a very good social experiment.
The military is the most propagandized and they then can spread new behavior among the mass public. The military was involved in the creation of the internet, and with it swinging porn sites.

"It seems that the original modern American swingers were crew-cut World War II air force pilots and their wives. Like elite warriors everywhere, these “top guns” often developed strong bonds with one another, perhaps because they suffered the highest casualty rate of any branch of the military. According to journalist Terry Gould, “key parties,” like those later dramatized in the 1997 film The Ice Storm, originated on these military bases in the 1940s, where elite pilots and their wives intermingled sexually with one another before the men flew off toward Japanese antiaircraft fire."




"Jet Pilot is a 1957 Cold War action film starring John Wayne and Janet Leigh. Written by Jules Furthman and co-produced by Furthman and Howard Hughes, the Technicolor movie went through several directorial changes, after Josef von Sternberg began the directing between October 1949 and February 1950. After that point, Furthman, Philip Cochran (second unit director), Ed Killy (assistant), Byron Haskin (for the model work) and Don Siegel also directed scenes (Siegel's weren't used), as did Howard Hughes himself.

Filming dragged on for nearly four years. The last day of shooting was in May 1953, but the film was kept out of release by Howard Hughes due to his tinkering with the film (something for which he was notorious) until October 1957, by which time Hughes had sold RKO. Universal ended up distributing Jet Pilot.[3]

Although Jet Pilot was publicized as showcasing the U.S. Air Force's latest jets, by the time it was finally shown most of the aircraft in the film were obsolescent or obsolete, being supplanted by more modern aircraft. In one aerial scene, the two lead characters fly a Lockheed F-94 Starfire to test a radar approach to intercept a propeller driven Convair B-36 bomber.

Jet Pilot was reportedly Howard Hughes's favorite film, one he watched repeatedly in his later years."

"Hughes intended to make a "jet-age" Hell's Angels to the extent that the flying scenes were the most important element, and led to his obsessive re-editing that stretched into years.[5] The lead actors fretted that the screenplay was "silly" with Wayne only taking on the role because he thought it would make a political statement, but soon realized it would become "one of the worst films" he would ever make.[6] Wayne would later recall, "The final budget was something like four million. It was just too stupid for words.

"Location filming took place primarily at Edwards Air Force Base and Hamilton Air Force Base, California, with full cooperation from the United States Air Force.[8]Much of the filming of flying scenes was done at Edwards using a North American B-45 Tornado bomber as a camera aircraft. Chuck Yeager, the first man to fly faster than the speed of sound, along with Charles Rayburn Cunningham, another senior jet pilot, was assigned by the U.S. Air Force to fly for the film.[9] Yeager would fly in the X-1 on its final flight, staged for the film cameras, on May 20, 1950.[10]

Jet Pilot is a 1957 Cold War romantic comedy film starring John Wayne and Janet Leigh. Written by Jules Furthman, the Technicolor movie went through several directorial changes. Josef von Sternberg directed between October, 1949 and February, 1950.

The F-86A Sabre jets depicted in the early sequences were actual operational aircraft of the 94th Fighter Squadron, the first unit so equipped in the USAF, shortly after their conversion to the type in 1949. Yeager would also fly the F-86A in a series of aerobatic maneuvers, under the direction of "air boss" Paul Mantz who coordinated the aerial sequences.[11]

Location filming for the Russian air base was done at George Air Force Base, a World War II air base with many of its wartime structures still intact, giving the base a primitive appearance. The 94th FS and its parent 1st Fighter Group were actually based at George during filming, and had just finished a deployment to Ladd Air Force BaseAlaska, as depicted in the storyline.

The "Soviet parasite fighter" that Shannon flies is actually a Bell X-1, the first supersonic aircraft design in the world. [Note 1]

The "mother ship" for the Soviet parasite fighter is actually a Boeing B-50, a development of the B-29.[Note 2] The "Yak 12" at the film's beginning is a black-painted Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star; the black fighter that appears near the finale, taxiing on the parking ramp, and the unpainted fighter that Olga is to test fly, are both Northrop F-89 Scorpions. An F-86 Sabre is used to depict a Russian chase aircraft, painted in dark colors, high visibility orange, and gray juxtaposed to obscure its actual silhouette."

Please take careful note of this highly edited and misleading footage shown below.

Keep in mind that the same companies that develop aircraft and ships and other military hardware also had a hand in developing Hollywood Special effects, computer graphics, film technology and video news as we know it. Take special notice how the tail hook line is never taut and never looks like it actually is stopping the massive jet from going overboard. This looks like clever model and photo film composite work.

Notice too: We are at sea. The camera is at sea and the ship is moving at sea and yet the horizon line remains constant and still. This is impossible. We are supposed to be rocking somewhat as we are supposed to be in the middle of an ocean!

The absurdity of the siting system that the pilots are supposed to be using to land is incredible. The premise is they can use an optical site to guide them in for a landing even though the sea makes landing on a ship near impossible as the deck is always changing angle. That’s the thing. The deck is not level and motionless it is at sea and moving about, making landing a fantasy or so it would seem. But there is a magic optical tool that the pilot uses to line themselves up with the moving ship to somehow magically enable them to land.
You have to watch/read the explanation yourselves and think about it.

"The first of the Optical Landing Systems was another British innovation, the Mirror Landing Aid invented by Lieutenant Commander H. C. N. Goodhart RN.[23] This was a gyroscopically-controlled concave mirror (in later designs replaced by a Fresnel lens Optical Landing System) on the port side of the deck. On either side of the mirror was a line of green "datum" lights. A bright orange "source" light was directed into the mirror creating the "ball" (or "meatball" in later USN parlance), which could be seen by the aviator who was about to land. The position of the ball compared to the datum lights indicated the aircraft's position in relation to the desired glidepath: if the ball was above the datum, the plane was high; below the datum, the plane was low; between the datum, the plane was on glidepath. The gyro stabilisation compensated for much of the movement of the flight deck due to the sea, giving a constant glidepath. The first trials of a mirror landing sight were conducted on HMS Illustrious in 1952.[23] Prior to OLSs, pilots relied on visual flag signals from Landing Signal Officers to help maintain proper glide path."


"An optical landing system (OLS) (nicknamed "meatball" or simply, "Ball") is used to give glidepath information to pilots in the terminal phase of landing on an aircraft carrier.[1] From the beginning of aircraft landing on ships in the 1920s to the introduction of OLSs, pilots relied solely on their visual perception of the landing area and the aid of the Landing Signal Officer (LSO in the U.S. Navy, or "batsman" in the Commonwealth navies). LSOs used colored flags, cloth paddles and lighted wands. The OLS was developed after World War II and was deployed on U.S. Navy carriers from 1955. In its developed form, the OLS consists of a horizontal row of green lights, used as a reference, and a column of vertical lights. The vertical lights signal whether the aircraft is too high, too low, or at the correct altitude as the pilot descends the glide slope towards the carrier's deck. Other lights give various commands and can be used to require the pilot to abort the landing and "go around." The OLS remains under control of the LSO, who can also communicate with the pilot via radio."

"The first OLS was the mirror landing aid, one of several British inventions made after the Second World War revolutionising the design of aircraft carriers. The others were the steam catapult and the angled flight deck. The Mirror Landing Aid was invented by Nicholas Goodhart.[2] It was tested on the carriers HMS Illustrious and HMS Indomitable before being introduced on British carriers in 1954 and on US carriers in 1955.

The mirror landing aid was a gyroscopically-controlled concave mirror on the port side of the flight deck. On either side of the mirror was a line of green coloured "datum lights". A bright orange "source" light was shone into the mirror creating the "ball" (or "meatball" in later USN parlance) which could be seen by the aviator who was about to land. The position of the ball compared to the datum lights indicated the aircraft's position in relation to the desired glidepath: if the ball was above the datum, the plane was high; below the datum, the plane was low; between the datum, the plane was on glidepath. The gyro stabilisation compensated for much of the movement of the flight deck due to the sea, giving a constant glidepath.

Initially, the device was thought able to allow the pilot to land without direction from the LSO. However, accident rates actually increased upon the system's initial introduction, so the current system of including the LSO was developed. This development, along with the others mentioned, contributed to the US carrier landing accident rate plummeting from 35 per 10,000 landings in 1954 to 7 per 10,000 landings in 1957.[3]

The LSO, who is a specially qualified and experienced Navy pilot, provides additional input to the pilot via radios, advising of power requirements, position relative to glide path and centerline. The LSO can also use a combination of lights attached to the OLS to indicate "go around" using the bright red, flashing wave off lights. Additional signals, such as "cleared to land", "add power", or "divert" can be signaled using with a row of green "cut" lights or a combination thereof."



"This condition is caused by the rocking motion of the craft.[2] Most people tend to concentrate on the inner surroundings,[clarification needed] or close the eyes and try to sleep. This will cause the worst effect of the disturbance.

The brain receives conflicting signals: while the eyes show a world that is still, our body, and in particular the equilibrium sensors located in our ears, send signals of a moving environment. This discordance causes the mind to send to the whole body a general alarm signal, in order to stop all activities, in particular the most complex of all, the digestion process."


An Irrelevant Solution to an impossible Problem:

The concept is that the gyroscopes enable the pilot to lock himself to the constantly moving deck of the ship. The problem is the moving landing surface. The aircraft carrier does not stay still and the angle is always changing. A gyroscope laser site does not address the problem and is a simply a bit of misleading propaganda nonsense. Nature does not make mistakes, people do. If this was real it would be based on a natural principle of some kind. All the real technology and scientific theories are based on natural principle and not abstract theoretical mathematical musings. The aircraft is subject to gravity and is always lined up and moves relative to the horizon. This bit of fantasy does nothing to address the underlying problem of landing on a constantly shifting surface. The angle will never be correct and the plane will never make a smooth landing at all.

If the pilot is too high or too low at one point in time, that pilot will be too low or high at the next instant of time.

"From the beginning of aircraft landing on ships in the 1920s to the introduction of OLSs, pilots relied solely on their visual perception of the landing area and the aid of the Landing Signal Officer (LSO in the U.S. Navy, or "batsman" in the Commonwealth navies). LSOs used colored flags, cloth paddles and lighted wands. The OLS was developed after World War II and was deployed on U.S. Navy carriers from 1955. In its developed form, the OLS consists of a horizontal row of green lights, used as a reference, and a column of vertical lights. The vertical lights signal whether the aircraft is too high, too low, or at the correct altitude as the pilot descends the glide slope towards the carrier's deck. Other lights give various commands and can be used to require the pilot to abort the landing and "go around." The OLS remains under control of the LSO, who can also communicate with the pilot via radio."

By their own narrative, pilots did not need any special sites during the early days of aircraft carriers. So many contradictions and shifting stories. The propaganda art of apologetics is never forgotten.

Please Notice how the men in these videos are too close to the landing and taking off planes.

This is unrealistic and ridiculous. Compare to a real airport.

Awesome video of Navy aircraft taking off and landing from an aircraft carrier in motion. CVN-65, USS Enterprise. I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU SHARING THIS VIDEO. Thank you.

The runway is way too short for a take off. But don’t believe me or the art of the apologetics without critical thought.

This stunning looking Embraer 600 Legacy Business Jet (based on the Embraer 135) is seen here at Cork Airport, Ireland on March 2nd 2013. It was on a short 40 minute fuel stop. It had arrived inbound from its home base in Bratislava, Slovakia and was proceeding on from Cork directly transatlantic to Teterboro Airport, New Jersey, USA.

A Tall Tale Hook?

A tailhook, arresting hook, or arrester hook is a device attached to the empennage (rear) of some military fixed-wing aircraft. The hook is used to achieve rapid deceleration during routine landings aboard aircraft carrier flight decks at sea, or during emergency landings or aborted takeoffs at properly equipped airports.
— https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tailhook
The Super Hornet is largely a new aircraft at about 20% larger, 7,000 lb (3,200 kg) heavier empty weight, and 15,000 lb (6,800 kg) heavier maximum weight than the original Hornet. The Super Hornet carries 33% more internal fuel, increasing mission range by 41% and endurance by 50% over the “Legacy” Hornet. The empty weight of the Super Hornet is about 11,000 lb (5,000 kg) less than that of the F-14 Tomcat which it replaced, while approaching, but not matching, the F-14’s payload and range.

Consider The Repeated Structural Stress

Wouldn't the mass and speed of the fighter jet mean that the tail hook would cause structural damage? This would be like trying to stop someone from running by grabbing the back of their collar. A fighter jet weights some 7,000lbs or so. Would this not cause damage to the aircraft? What about "equal and opposite"? Should we not expect  reaction as a result of the action? The jet would stop, but shouldn't we expect to see some kind of sling shot like effect as a result? This energy has to be dissipated somehow. It cannot magically disappear. Watch the videos of the landing and notice how slack the tail hook cable looks.

Notice how slack the tail hook line is. Consider the mass of that jet aircraft, consider how big it is supposed to be. Does that move at all like  anything but a small model?

Notice the horizon line does not move relative to the ship. In some cases, - in other films and videos, the camera, the ship and the horizon are all stable. In other words the camera is locked down too. Sometimes the camera is hand held or otherwise in motion, but in no case does the ship move (rock) relative to the sea or horizon. When you cannot see the horizon look at the sea and how it stays in the same relative position to the ship. This indicates that the footage is not from a ship at sea. It indicates an easily accomplished Hollywood Special Effect job, with or without computers.

Why a backwards 77? (look above Bush's left shoulder) The numbers should be forward, a cargo container is not an ambulance.

Whether green screen or not, this looks like a Hollywood production.

"Motion sickness is thought to be caused by the visual disorientation resulting from being on an object in motion (ship) competing against our body's natural inclination for balance. Whatever the technical cause, the majority of cruisers are familiar with how rough, rocking seas can leave us feeling less than our best."    http://www.cruisecritic.com/articles.cfm?ID=48

USS Langley (CV-1/AV-3) was the United States Navy's first aircraft carrier, converted in 1920 from the collier USS Jupiter (AC-3), and also the U.S. Navy's first turbo-electric-powered ship. Conversion of another collier was planned but canceled when the Washington Naval Treaty required the cancellation of the partially built battlecruisers Lexington and Saratoga, freeing up their hulls for conversion to the aircraft carriers CV-2 and CV-3. Langley was named after Samuel Pierpont Langley, an American aviation pioneer. Following another conversion, to a seaplane tender, Langley fought in World War II. On 27 February 1942, she was attacked by dive bombers[2] of the Japanese 21st and 23rd Naval Air Flotillas[3] and so badly damaged that she had to be scuttled by her escorts.”

“Jupiter was converted into the first U.S. aircraft carrier at the Navy Yard, Norfolk, Virginia, for the purpose of conducting experiments in the new idea of seaborne aviation. On 11 April 1920, she was renamed Langley in honor of Samuel Pierpont Langley, an American astronomer, physicist, aeronautics pioneer and aircraft engineer, and she was given the hull number CV-1. She recommissioned on 20 March 1922 with Commander Kenneth Whiting in command.”

"The Spirit of '43 is an American animated World War II propaganda film created by Walt Disney Studios in 1942 and released in January 1943. The film stars Donald Duck, and arguably contains the first appearance of the character Scrooge McDuck, although Scrooge is not named in the film. It is a sequel to The New Spirit. The purpose of the film is to encourage patriotic Americans to file and pay their income taxes faithfully in order to help the war effort. The repeated theme in the film is "Taxes...To Defeat the Axis."  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_of_%2743

Imagine how much worse it is if the seas are rough. Weather, especially sea weather, can be very dangerous & unpredictable and powerful, no?

This not does make for reliable weaponry or means of deploying force.
“The ship rocks. Constantly. It never stops rocking. No, a giant cruise ship like the Dream doesn’t get tossed violently back and forth in the waves, but it still does rock from side to side. And it never, never stops rocking unless you’re in port. You eventually get used to it—the coffee cup you have in the morning slides across the table from you and you eventually think nothing of it. But it definitely takes a while to get used to. What was really surprising was how long it took me to adjust AFTER the cruise was over: my body kept swaying back and forth trying to compensate, for a two full days after the cruise!”




"Storms are not unusual here. The Tasman Sea sits just north of the great Southern Ocean; a notoriously rough and stormy place. This ocean is unique in that no continental landmass interrupts its rushing path around the globe. In the Northern Hemisphere, if you try to sail from West to East, you’ll run smack into land eventually – California, Oregon, or Washington for example. But between us and the craggy, frozen shores of Antarctica there is only ocean, wrapping around the Earth in a massive torrent.”



So we had to call the War off due to the bad weather…

Too Many Uncontrollable Factors Make This a Poor Way To Conduct War, If You Do Not Control The Game Board You Do Not Play The Game.


Another reason why Pearl Harbor was fake. We have to think we need to pay our taxes after all. We need to think it is possible to not only project power across the globe, but that there are crazy maniacs who have the political power to do it.

"Arresting gear, or arrestor gear, describes mechanical systems used to rapidly decelerate an aircraft as it lands. Arresting gear on aircraft carriers is an essential component of naval aviation, and it is most commonly used on CATOBAR and STOBAR aircraft carriers. Similar systems are also found at land-based airfields for expeditionary or emergency use. Typical systems consist of several steel wire ropes laid across the aircraft landing area, designed to be caught by an aircraft's tailhook. During a normal arrestment, the tailhook engages the wire and the aircraft's kinetic energy is transferred to hydraulic damping systems attached below the carrier deck. There are other related systems which use nets to catch aircraft wings or landing gear. These barricade and barrier systems are only used for emergency arrestments for aircraft without operable tail hooks."


Please Notice How The Jets are Parked Like Cars on a Used Car Lot.
How could they possibly maneuver these things in any realistic way to allow them to take off and land? How could they be able to respond to an emergency in anything that would resemble a rapid response? Are airports set up like this?



Please Note: Both slower propeller based aircraft and higher speed jet aircraft make use of the same aircraft carriers with the same ranges of runway distances (about 800-1000 or so usable feet ignoring how crowded the deck would have to get as the planes all “came home to roost”), & also ignoring how they could take off or land in any realistic and safe manner, in the first place, based on what we’ve been shown over and over.  Any mistake on any pilot's part and a whole lotta expensive equipment & highly trained personal are lost.

Just a prop, above.

We are supposed to believe that magically the energy of the landing (or taking off) aircraft can be adjusted to compensate for the lack of proper distance, being that the aircraft carrier is some one fifth smaller than an airport. The aircraft carrier is also rocking at sea, making taking off and landing a seemingly impossible task.  A landing strip on a surface that does not remain motionless is an absurd idea at face value. The visual evidence & common sense, would seem to support Hollywood Special Effects over actual technology.

Compare the magic camera that can magically follow a high speed military jet while never allowing that jet to display the naturally expected perspective we’d normally see as a result of living in what we term a three dimensional world. Compare the fighter jet footage with the magic camera to the footage below of face cars. Notice how the perspective on the cars change as the computer controlled camera tracks the racing car motion. Notice how the Military Jet footage lacks this real world effect. The magic camera can somehow follow a high speed jet in cartoon fashion. This is one way to tell that the footage we have been seeing for years might be fake. We were programmed by the trusted voices in news to believe we were seeing reality instead of highly edited Hollywood production numbers. Notice too the impossible right angle turns, the medium of the air is completely ignored. This is supposed to be a huge jet. Does this move like a real world object at all? Notice too that as the jet maneuvers its steering flaps do not always themselves move. This is impossible as these flaps are how the Jet is supposed to be able to perform the rolls and ridiculous right angle turns in the first place. Jets cannot fly upside down despite what we have seen Blue Angels do on YOUTUBE.

Little Wars is a set of rules for playing with toy soldiers, written by H. G. Wells in 1913. Its full title is Little Wars: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books.


The Air Show: Radio Control Models or Life Sized Jets? 

"There were also remotely controlled cutters and experimental remotely controlled planes in the Red Army. In the 1930s, the United Kingdom developed the radio-controlled Queen Bee, a remotely controlled unmanned Tiger Moth aircraft for a fleet's gunnery firing practice. The Queen Bee was superseded by the similarly named Queen Wasp, a purpose-built, target aircraft of higher performance."

File:Winston Churchill and the Secretary of State for War waiting to see the launch of a de Havilland Queen Bee radio-controlled target drone, 6 June 1941.

U.F.O.'s & I.F.O.'s

Could They Be Just Radio Controlled Models? Smaller objects can appear larger. Smaller objects can maneuver easier in the air. Compare a bumble bee to an eagle in terms of agility. The bee can maneuver in ways the eagle cannot. Human sized jets would not be able to perform the maneuvers we see on video and especially in photography (see the end of this article for more).

"In 1894, the first example of wirelessly controlling at a distance was during a demonstration by the British physicist Oliver Lodge, in which he made use of a Branly's coherer to make a mirror galvanometer move a beam of light when an electromagnetic wave was artificially generated. This was further refined by Guglielmo Marconi and William Preece, at a demonstration that took place on December 12, 1896, at Toynbee Hall in London, in which they made a bell ring by pushing a button in a box that was not connected by any wires.
In 1898, at an exhibition at Madison Square GardenNikola Tesla demonstrated a small unmanned boat that was radio controlled. In a bit of showmanship, Tesla entertained the audience to make it seem that the boat could apparently obey commands from the audience but it, was in fact, controlled by Tesla interpreting the verbal requests and sending appropriate frequencies to tuned circuits in the boat.[1] John Hays Hammond Jr is regarded as the father of radio control due to experiments as an apprentice of Thomas Edison at the age of twelve. Hammond was a close friend of Tesla and they performed experiments together in his lab located in his castle. He learned a great deal from his exposure to Tesla. Tesla was granted a US patent on this invention on July 1, 1898.[2]In 1903, the Spanish engineer Leonardo Torres y Quevedo presented the "Telekino" at the Paris Academy of Science, and was granted a patent in France, Spain, Great Britain and the United States.[3] In 1904, Bat, a Windermere steam launch, was controlled using experimental radio control by its inventor, Jack Kitchen.
In 1909 the French inventor Gabet demonstrated what he called his "Torpille Radio-Automatique", a radio-controlled torpedo.[4] In 1917, Archibald Low as head of the RFC Experimental Works, was the first person to use radio control successfully on an aircraft.
In the 1920s, various radio-controlled ships were used for naval artillery target practice. In 1922, the obsolete, US Navy battleship USS Iowa became the first of these target ships.[5] Radio control gear, developed by the radio engineer John Hays Hammond, Jr., was installed before her sinking in gunnery exercise in March 1923.
The Soviet Red Army used remotely controlled teletanks during the 1930s in the Winter War against Finland and fielded at least two teletank battalions at the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. A teletank is controlled by radio from a control tank at a distance of 500–1,500 m, the two constituting a telemechanical group. There were also remotely controlled cutters and experimental remotely controlled planes in the Red Army. In the 1930s, the United Kingdom developed the radio-controlled Queen Bee, a remotely controlled unmanned Tiger Moth aircraft for a fleet's gunnery firing practice. The Queen Bee was superseded by the similarly named Queen Wasp, a purpose-built, target aircraft of higher performance."

"Historically, the best-known alternative to the "apparent distance" theory has been a "relative size" theory. This states that the perceived size of an object depends not only on its retinal size, but also on the size of objects in its immediate visual environment. In the case of the Moon illusion, objects in the vicinity of the horizon moon (that is, objects on or near the horizon) exhibit a fine detail that makes the Moon appear larger, while the zenith moon is surrounded by large expanses of empty sky that make it appear smaller.[14]

The effect is illustrated by the classic Ebbinghaus illusion, where a circle appears larger when surrounded by smaller circles, than it does when surrounded by larger circles.

Extensive experiments in 1962 by Kaufman and Rock showed that a crucial causative factor in the illusion is a change in the pattern of cues to distance, comparable to the Ponzo illusion. The horizon moon is perceived to be at the end of a stretch of terrain receding into the distance, accompanied by distant trees, buildings and so forth, all of which indicate that it must be a long way away, while these cues are absent from the zenith moon. Experiments by many other researchers have found the same result; namely, when pictorial cues to a great distance are subtracted from the vista of the large-looking horizon moon it looks smaller. When pictorial cues to an increased distance are added into the vista of the zenith moon, it appears larger."

The F/A designation stands for fighter/attack making this plane ideal for all types of assault missions. The F/A 18 is used by all branches of the military.

Small bodies can make abrupt changes in position, large bodies cannot. Life sized Fighter Jets cannot possibly make the kinds of maneuvers we see in video.

The small hummingbird is extremely agile. So is the bumble bee. These are small bodies, they have less mass and less air resistance. The same medium, the air,  that allows flight would also cause drag that would impede the larger bodies ability to maneuver. An eagle cannot make the abrupt turns that the smaller buble bee or hummingbird can.

This is one of my favorite bee shots. You can watch the way the feet move against the movement of the wings. I am working on a new bee series that will be a short film, 20 minutes or so on bees. I think it will be awesome with some 4K images in it also.

Compare: The Footage Below is Highly Suspicious As We Are Supposed To Believe These Are Real Life Sized Jets and Airplanes. Such feats would seem impossible.

Four US Air Force F-15E Strike Eagles perform a 1,000 ft flyby at the US Open Tennis Tournament Women's Finals.

If you ever have the pleasure of witnessing Fighter Jets fly overhead, you will experience a lot of noise and 'thunder' and you will see that these high speed aircraft keep safe distance from each other.

Could we be seeing Radio Controlled models? It is difficult to determine the size and speed of an object that is flying overhead with only the sky as background. Is it possible these jets are more illusion than not?

"Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC), is a process by a United States federal government commission to increase United States Department of Defense efficiency by planning the end of the Cold War realignment and closure of military installations. More than 350 installations have been closed in five BRAC rounds: 1988, 1991, 1993, 1995, and 2005.”










Our 13-foot USS Kitty Hawk replica launches her planes to the beach in this RapidNadion adventure. Some aircraft never make it off the deck, and others crash into the drink due to Kitty Hawk's prototype catapult system, but finally, a plane makes it through.
Two years ago, we launched R/C airplanes from the deck of our scratch-built USS Kitty Hawk replica. Ever since, a four-word challenge has echoed in the comments: "now land on it!" Today, we do just that. It took many failed attempts over 24 months to trap a single plane on this deck.

Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC),[1][2] is a process[3] by a United States federal government commission[4] to increase United States Department of Defense efficiency by planning the end of the Cold War realignment and closure of military installations. More than 350 installations have been closed in five BRAC rounds: 1988, 1991, 1993, 1995, and 2005.


"The Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 after the 1947 reorganization for establishing the National Military Establishment was passed regarding reductions of US military bases, forts, posts, and stations. The subsequent 1950s buildup for the Cold War (e.g., during the Korean War) resulted in extensive installations such as the widespread number of Permanent System radar stations and Semi Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) control centers. By 1959, plans for extensive numbers of Cold War installations were cancelled (e.g., DoD's June 19, 1959, Continental Air Defense Program reduced the number of Super Combat Center underground nuclear bunker to 7) and in 1958, US Intercontinental Missiles (ICMs) began to replace Strategic Air Command bombers. From 1960–1964, the Eisenhower and Kennedy Administrationsclosed "574 U.S. military bases around the world",[5] particularly after President John F. Kennedy was briefed after his inauguration that the missile gap was not a concern.

1961 closures

President Kennedy announced on March 28, 1961 that "73 military establishments" would be closed[6]—Congress was informed on 30 March—[7] (e.g., the Snark Missile Launch Complex's wing was deactivated on 5 June 1961),[8] and 224 closures were added later in 1973.[9][10]

1964 closures

"In December 1963, Secretary McNamara announced the closure of twenty-six DOD installations or activities in the CONUS".[11]:134

1965 closures

Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara announced 95 base closures/realignments in November 1964: 80 in the United States (33 states & DC) and 15 overseas.[5] Closures included the Portsmouth Navy Yard, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Brooklyn Army Terminal, the Springfield Armory, 6 bomber bases, and 15 Air Defense Command radar stations—a realignment transferred Highlands Air Force Station to the adjacent Highlands Army Air Defense Site.[5]

1968 Project 693

Project 693[12] was established by Secretary Clark Clifford during the Vietnam War for reducing programs and personnel, and the project also closed several military installations.[13]

1969 realignments

The DoD realigned "307 military bases" beginning with an announcement in October 1969.[14]

1974 Project Concise

Project Concise eliminated most of the Project Nike missile locations which generally each had 2 sites, a radar station on an elevated landform for guidance and command/control, and a launch area that had launch rails and stored missiles and warheads. A 1976 follow-on program to Concise closed additional installations.

Grace Commission

The Grace Commission was President Ronald Reagan's "Private Sector Survey" on cost control that "concluded in 1983 that savings could be made in the military base structure" and "recommended establishing an independent commission to study the issue." "Public Law 100–526 endorsed the review" in October 1988 and authorized the "special commission to recommend base realignments and closures to the Secretary of Defense" and provided relief from NEPA provisions that had hindered the base closure process.[11]:156

1988 Carlucci Commission[edit]

The Carlucci Commission was chartered by Secretary of Defense Frank C. Carlucci on 3 May 1988[11]:156 and in December 1988 recommended closure of 5 Air Force Bases (Chanute in Illinois, George, Mather and Norton in California, and Pease in New Hampshire).[11]:161

Defense Base Realignment and Closure Act of 1990[edit]

The Defense Base Realignment and Closure Act of 1990 provided "the basic framework for the transfer and disposal of military installations closed during the base realignment and closure (BRAC) process".[3] The process was created in 1988 to reduce pork barrel politics with members of Congress that arise when facilities face activity reductions.[15]

The most recent process began May 13, 2005, when Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld forwarded his recommendations for realignments and closures to the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission. The BRAC is an independent nine-member panel appointed by the President. This panel evaluated the list by taking testimony from interested parties and paying visits to affected bases. The BRAC Commission had the opportunity to add bases to the list, and did so in a July 19, 2005 hearing. The Commission met its deadline of September 2005 to provide the evaluated list to the President, who approved the list with the condition that the list could only be approved or disapproved in its entirety. On November 7, 2005 the approved list was then given to Congress which then had the opportunity to disapprove the entire list within 45 days by enacting a resolution of disapproval. This did not happen and the BRAC Commission’s recommendations became final."

Fun With A Gun That Tops All Other Gifts: 

It's ALL FUN & GAMES Until Someone Loses An Eye! 

"Drawing inspiration from Chess, Helwig, Master of Pages to the Duke of Brunswick created a battle emulation game in 1780. According to Max Boot's book War Made New (2006, pg 122), sometime between 1803 and 1809, the Prussian General Staff developed war games, with staff officers moving metal pieces around on a game table (with blue pieces representing their forces and red pieces those of the enemy), using dice rolls to indicate random chance and with a referee scoring the results. Increasingly realistic variations became part of military training in the 19th century in many nations, and were called "kriegsspiel" or "wargames". Wargames or military exercises are still an important part of military training today.

Wargaming moved from professional training to the hobby market with the publication of Little Wars, children's toy soldier game, by H.G. Wells in 1913.[8] A niche hobby of wargaming emerged for adults that recreated model games around actual battles from the Napoleonic period onward. Although a single marker or miniature figure typically represented a squad of soldiers, some "skirmish level" or "man to man" games did exist where one figure represented one entity only.

The board wargame Diplomacy, invented by Allan B. Calhamer in 1954 and released in 1959, made social interaction and interpersonal skills part of its gameplay. A live-action variant of Diplomacy named Slobbovia was used for character development rather than conflict.

In the late 1960s, fantasy elements were increasingly used in wargames. Linguist M. A. R. Barker began to use wargame-like sessions to develop his creation Tékumel.[7] In 1970, the New England Wargamers Association demonstrated a fantasy wargame called Middle Earth at a convention of the Military Figure Collectors Association.[9] Fantasy writer Greg Stafford created the board wargame White Bear and Red Moon to explore conflicts in his fantasy world Glorantha, though it did not see publication until 1974.

Chainmail, c. 1975

Gary Gygax of the University of Minnesota's wargaming society developed a set of rules for a late medieval milieu. This unusual wargame saw publication in 1971 under the name Chainmail. Although Chainmail was a historical game, later editions included an appendix for adding fantasy elements such as wizards and dragons.

A wargame session was held at the University of Minnesota in 1969, with Dave Wesely as the moderator, in which the players represented single characters in a Napoleonic scenario centering on a small town named Braunstein. This did not lead to any further experimentation in the same vein immediately, but the ground had been laid. It actually bore greater resemblance to later LARP games than what would conventionally be thought of as a role-playing game. Wesely would, later in the year, run a second "Braunstein," placing the players in the roles of government officials and revolutionaries in a fictional banana republic. The two games would be used partially by Dave Arneson who was a participant, to focus his ideas regarding a fantasy realm known as Blackmoor, and by 1971, Arneson would be running what could be conventionally recognized as a role-playing game based on his Blackmoor world.

Blackmoor contained core elements that would become widespread in fantasy gaming: hit pointsexperience points, character levels, armor class, and dungeon crawls. Like the wargames it grew from, Blackmoor used miniature figures and terrain grids to illustrate the action. The key difference with the Blackmoor games, which allowed it to become a game distinct from the wargame-based Braunsteins, was the ability of the players to set their own character goals, in addition to the scenario goals set by Arneson. Arneson and Gygax then met and collaborated on the first Dungeons & Dragons game.


"In a surprise announcement today, the US Navy announced that the Blue Angels will transition from their current F-18 Hornets to unmanned F-47 aircraft for their 2018 airshow season. The team will still fly a full ‘delta’ aerobatic routine, including tight formations, using six of the cutting edge drones. The only difference is that the pilots will never leave the ground and will instead monitor the pre-programmed flight routines from special trailers set up at each show site. Since the aircraft are unmanned, the team will no longer offer media rides but will allow selected media representatives to ‘sit in’ on practice demonstrations using a virtual reality headset that will be known as Blue Angel 7, the same callsign as the team’s current two-seat media jet. The pilots will also be expected to post to social media during the routine to increase their interaction with fans."

“This is a tremendous opportunity for the Navy to showcase our advanced technology and cutting edge aircraft,” said Jack Herndon, the Navy’s Chief of Public Outreach. “Honestly, the Hornets are getting to be quite old and worn out. We saw the need to replace them and decided to take advantage of the timing by leaping straight ahead to our very newest fighter aircraft, the F-47. The Blue Angels’ primary mission is to inspire America’s young people to join the Navy, and with this transition we are able to demonstrate that even young men and women who only want to sit at a computer all day can have a successful Navy flying career. Those are exactly the people we are looking to recruit in the future.”"


Is this Blue Angels story just an April Fool's prank or this story more real than you might think. Does the Truth hide as an April Fool's Prank? Could this news story be a multi layered prank and the real prank be that the story is already true? Layers of lies protect the truth. The military are experts in the art of deception after all. What secrets are really kept 'classified' and what so called 'classified' secrets are really just lies?

“Navy Secretary Ray Mabus really likes drones. He now has a whole deputy assistant secretariat for them. In contrast to the U.S. Air Force, his people aren’t yet burned out from operating them around the clock for over a decade. This April Fool’s Day even brought the annual joke about another aerial demonstration team—this time the Blue Angels—going unmanned. Except that if Cirque de Soleil can do it already, maybe the idea just isn’t that far-fetched. For those X-47B UCAS-Ds—Unmanned Combat Air System Demonstrators—bought from Northrop Grumman have been taking off from carriers, landing on carriers, and refueling from 707s. That bodes well for the forthcoming UCLASS—Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike—competition. But for all that the secretary likes those drones from Northrop, further tests and evaluations of the airplane will proceed judiciously, so as not to give “the people that made UCAS a huge advantage over what the next iteration is.” And that may be a mistake.

For background, the UCLASS competition is intended to provide each carrier with a squadron of long-endurance drones for scouting out and bombing things hundreds of miles away. Four companies will bid: Northrop Grumman with a further development of that X-47B ‘Iron Raven’ (excellent), Lockheed Martin with its Sea Ghost, Boeing with its Phantom Ray, and General Atomics with its Sea Avenger. As I wrote last August on Real Clear Defense, “that structure is a long way from the monopolization of the [combat aircraft] business that Lockheed Martin was presumed to have inherited by winning the Joint Strike Fighter contract some thirteen years ago.” Now, however, the SecNav is concerned that Northrop may have an advantage from the past four years of flight testing with the Navy.

Of course it does. Lockheed has an advantage in stealth aircraft design and manufacturing from its past 18 years of building F-22s and F-35s. Boeing has an advantage in naval aircraft as the producer of most of the world’s currently serving carrier-based fighters. General Atomics Aeronautical has an advantage in drones from having focused almost solely for the past 20 years on designing and building Predators and Reapers. Every incumbent brings inalienable advantages to the next competition. For as Mark Lorell and Hugh Levaux wrote in their seminal study The Cutting Edge: A Half Century of U.S. Fighter Aircraft R&D (RAND, 1998), “experience matters, because of the tendency to specialize and thus to develop system-specific expertise.”

But they also wrote that “the most dramatic innovations and breakthroughs came from secondary or marginal players trying to compete with the industry leaders.” Depending on one’s perspective, that might be a description today of General Atomics, with its focus on relatively low-performance aircraft, or Boeing, with its relative limited track record in operational drones. Secondary and marginal really don’t describe Lockheed Martin in any way, but that just confirms that the company is an under-dog to no one in combat aircraft competitions. The beauty of the UCLASS program is that it will pit four rather dissimilar organizations against one another for a most prestigious contract.”


Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync.


Compare the magic camera that can magically follow a high speed military jet while never allowing that jet to display the naturally expected perspective we’d normally see as a result of living in what we term a three dimensional world. Compare the fighter jet footage with the magic camera to the footage below of face cars. Notice how the perspective on the cars change as the computer controlled camera tracks the racing car motion. Notice how the Military Jet footage lacks this real world effect. The magic camera can somehow follow a high speed jet in cartoon fashion. This is one way to tell that the footage we have been seeing for years might be fake. We were programmed by the trusted voices in news to believe we were seeing reality instead of highly edited Hollywood production numbers. Notice too the impossible right angle turns, the medium of the air is completely ignored. This is supposed to be a huge jet. Does this move like a real world object at all? Notice too that as the jet maneuvers its steering flaps do not always themselves move. This is impossible as these flaps are how the Jet is supposed to be able to perform the rolls and ridiculous right angle turns in the first place. Jets cannot fly upside down despite what we have seen Blue Angels do on YOUTUBE.

Jet Planes cannot fly upside down. What you see below makes no sense. The jets are too close together. Again the medium of air is ignored. The very real medium of air is what makes the aircraft appear to be free from gravity in the first place. If it were not for the interaction of the moving wing and the medium of air, there’d be no flight in the first place. 

This medium of the air would prevent large sized aircraft from maneuvering like bumble bees or humming birds. What we see is impossible and the fact that we see these aircraft acting like a flock of geese is another tell.
Even if you accept the absurd concept that these Military Jets could fly that close together in the first place, One sneeze and millions of dollars in equipment and highly trained and valuable military personal are lost for ever.

Look at the footage of the Blue Angels on YOUTUBE and notice that like the photo below, the jets are the same size and too close together to be believable. Its not a trick of perspective. The wings would crash into each other. Notice too that the YOUTUBE clips are highly edited and have magic cameras that can somehow follow high speed aircraft without allowing the aircraft to ever show any real signs of being an actual 3d object. In other words we never see the effect of perspective as the jet approaches and flies away from the camera. The camera can magically follow the aircraft no matter how it impossibly turns.

How can these jets be this close to each other? This does not look like some kind of perspective trick as the jets are all the same size. It Looks like a special effect job.

NAF El Centro, CA Saturday February 20th, 2016 8:30am - Practice #1 simulating a "low show" demonstration. One of the 6 jets bailed out toward the end, not sure what plane or why? 1:00pm - Practice #2 - simulating the usual "high show" demonstration.
On Jan. 23, China's state broadcaster, CCTV, ran a story about an air force training exercise that contained some suspicious footage. Around the segment's one minute 12 seconds mark (see above), as the China-U.S.-oriented blog Ministry of Tofu pointed out, "the way a target was hit by the air-to-air missile fired by a J-10 fighter aircraft and exploded looks almost identical to a cinema scene from the Hollywood film Top Gun."

Bees & Drones
“The life of the bee will be the life of our race, says Nikola Tesla, world-famed scientist.”
"You will communicate instantly by simple vest-pocket equipment.  Aircraft will travel the skies, unmanned, driven and guided by radio.  Enormous power will be transmitted great distances without wires.  Earthquakes will become more and more frequent.  Temperate zones will turn frigid or torrid.  And some of these awe-inspiring developments, says Tesla, are not so very far off.”
Nikola Tesla

Cartoon Physics Warning! 


It would be absurd to fly this expensive machinery so close together as a sneeze could cause a horrible accident. Each Jet costs some $21 million not including the life (or training costs) of the pilot.  

"The basic acquisition price of a single F/A-18 A Hornet is approximately $21 million. The cost of additional weapons-related equipment varies according to the configuration, and use of each aircraft can significantly increase the total price."


How can a Jet fly straight up like a rocket? How can a jet really fly upside down? Can human sized aircraft really perform such seemingly amazing feats? Are we seeing Hollywood photo composite work or are we seeing some kind of radio control device that is capable of performing fantastic maneuvers? Can a human really withstand such drastic changes in motion? 

In 1898, at an exhibition at Madison Square GardenNikola Tesla demonstrated a small unmanned boat that was radio controlled. In a bit of showmanship, Tesla entertained the audience to make it seem that the boat could apparently obey commands from the audience but it, was in fact, controlled by Tesla interpreting the verbal requests and sending appropriate frequencies to tuned circuits in the boat.[1] John Hays Hammond Jr is regarded as the father of radio control due to experiments as an apprentice of Thomas Edison at the age of twelve. Hammond was a close friend of Tesla and they performed experiments together in his lab located in his castle. He learned a great deal from his exposure to Tesla. Tesla was granted a US patent on this invention on July 1, 1898."


Could we be seeing the mythic Nikola Tesla flying machine technology? This is pure speculation of course. But for the sake of completeness, below are some quotes from the man himself. Nikola Tesla was a pioneer in the field radio control after all. An electrical field could explain the tight formations. Of course this would be some kind of "Top Secret" (occulted or hidden) technology. This is very speculative of course as we have nothing to examine but some old quotes. The above photos look like Hollywood magic to me, but I've only seen fighter jets fly over head. I've never seen any stunt air shows.

The videos I have examined look like they are fake as the camera seems to follow the jets in a way that would be impossible. The jets also perform maneuvers that are fantastic and unbelievable based on demonstrable physical principle. The jets tend to turn and roll and do all sorts of a agile stunts without any visible means to do so. The wing flaps do not seem to move at all, at least in many of the videos I have watched. There is no visible mechanism for steering at work when the jets tumble and roll. The jets seem capable of genie like performance, at least on video.

When Tesla was 82, instead of speaking at a dinner party, he issued a written statement:

“I have worked out a dynamic theory of gravity in all details and hope to give this to the world very soon. It explains the causes of this force and the motions of heavenly bodies under its influence so satisfactorily that it will put an end to idle speculations and false conceptions, as that of curved space. According to the relativists, space has a tendency to curvature owing to an inherent property or presence of celestial bodies.

“Granting a semblance of reality to this fantastic idea, it is still very self-contradictory. Every action is accompanied by an equivalent reaction and the effects of the latter are directly opposite to those of the former. Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curvature of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies and, producing the opposite effects, straighten out the curves.

“Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible -However, even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for them and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion.”

(2014/7/23) Here is Next Levitation Project! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLgD3EtxwdY Three-Dimensional Mid-Air Acoustic Manipulation (2013,2014-) Yoichi Ochiai / 落合陽一(The University of Tokyo / 東京大学) Takayuki Hoshi / 星貴之(Nagoya Institute of Technology / 名古屋工業大学) Jun Rekimoto / 暦本純一 (The University of Tokyo / Sony CSL) http://96ochiai.ws/3DOFacoustic contact: ochyai_manage@orange-p.co.jp The essence of levitation technology is the countervailing of gravity.

Nikola Tesla and Acoustic Levitation Myth or Reality?

"Acoustic levitation (also: Acoustophoresis) is a method for suspending matter in a medium by using acoustic radiation pressure from intense sound waves in the medium.

Sometimes sound waves at ultrasonic frequencies can be used to levitate objects, thus creating no sound heard by the human ear, such as was demonstrated at Otsuka Lab,[1] while others use audible frequencies. There are various ways of emitting the sound wave, from creating a wave underneath the object and reflecting it back to its source, to using a (transparent) tank to create a large acoustic field.

Acoustic levitation is usually used for containerless processing which has become more important of late due to the small size and resistance of microchips and other such things in industry. Containerless processing may also be used for applications requiring very-high-purity materials or chemical reactions too rigorous to happen in a container. This method is harder to control than other methods of containerless processing such as electromagnetic levitation but has the advantage of being able to levitate nonconducting materials.

By 2013, acoustic levitation had progressed from motionless levitation to controllably moving hovering objects, an ability useful in the pharmaceutical and electronics industries.[2] A prototype device involved a chessboard-like array of square acoustic emitters that move an object from one square to another by slowly lowering the sound intensity emitted from one square while increasing the sound intensity from the other, allowing the object to travel virtually "downhill".[2]

Current systems have lifted at most a few kilograms.[3] Acoustic levitators are used mostly in industry. However, some products are commercially available to the public."



“Excerpt from “My Inventions” by Nikola Tesla, Chap. VI, last page:

“As stated on a previous occasion, when I was a student at college I conceived a flying machine quite unlike the present ones. The underlying principle was sound (acoustic levitation) but could not be carried into practice for want of a prime-mover of sufficiently great activity. In recent years I have successfully solved this problem and am now planning aerial machines devoid of sustaining planes, ailerons, propellers, and other external attachments which will be capable of immense speeds and are very likely to furnish powerful arguments for peace in the future. Such a machine, sustained and propelled entirely by reaction, is shown on page 108 and is supposed to be controlled either mechanically or by wireless energy.

By installing proper plants, it will be practicable to project a missile of this kind into the air and drop it almost on the very spot designated, which may be thousands of miles away.”

Tesla’s new self-propelled aerial tel-automaton. Devoid of propeller, sustaining wings and other means of external control. Could attain an speed of 350miles per hour (3600 m.p.h in another source), and will reach a determined point a thousand miles away accurately within a few feet.


Tesla explained that his “flying machine” would fly through the rarefied medium above the stratosphere at a height of 8 miles to reduce friction. With such conditions he stated that the velocity would be 3600 m.p.h. It also would be able to remain absolutely stationary in the air. He described the engine as having 1000 horse power, and weighing only 100 pounds. To make a comparison, one of the most powerfull turbine engine of the modern comertial aviation, a single GE90-115B puts out over 110,000 horsepower (the double of Titanic’s engines), weihging 16.644 lb in empty condition.

Tesla Promises Big Things - New York Sun - September 12, 1911:

“How about aerial navigation?” Dr. Tesla was asked. He considered for a moment or two and then replied with great deliberation:

“The application of this principle will give the world a flying machine unlike anything that has ever been suggested before. It will have no planes, no screw propellers or devices of any kind hitherto used. It will be small and compact, excessively swift, and, above all, perfectly safe in the greatest storm. It can be built of any size and can carry any weight that may be desired”

Tesla’s New Engine - New York Times - September 13, 1911

“Mr. Charles Wilson Price, editor of the Electrical Review, does not say that Nikola Tesla’s latest invention of a rotary engine operated by steam or gases will save most of the 30,000,000 horse power wasted annually by manufacturing plants in this country, power that is worth upward half a billion dollars. He has not said, as Mr. Tesla is reported saying, that the new engine will give the world a flying machine that, without planes or screw propellers, ‘excessively swift, and, above all, perfectly safe in the greatest storm, will be small and compact compared with present machines, but capable of carrying shiploads of passengers.”

The boy’s book of new inventions - Maule, Harry E. (Harry Edward) - The Tesla Turbine” - 1912 - Pg. 268:

”I was a mechanical engineer before I was an electrical engineer, and besides, this principle was worked on in the course of my search for the ideal motor for airships, to be used in conjunction with my invention for the wireless transmission of electrical power. For twenty years I worked on the problem, but I have not given up. When my plan is perfected the present-day aeroplanes and dirigible balloons will disappear, and the dangerous sport of aviation, as we know it now with its hundreds of accidents, and its picturesque birdmen, will give way to safe, seaworthy airships, without wings or gas bags, but supported and driven by mechanical means”.

“As I told you before when we were talking of the wireless transmission of power, the mechanism will be a development of the principle on which my turbine is constructed”.

”It will be so tremendously powerful that it will make a veritable rope of air above the great machine to hold it at any altitude the navigators may choose, and also a rope of air in front or in the rear to send it forward or backward at almost any speed desired. When that day comes, airship travel will be as safe and prosaic as travel by railroad train today, and not much very different, except that there will be no dirt, and it will be much faster. One will be able to dine in New York, retire in an aero Pullman berth in a closed and perfectly furnished car, and arise to breakfast in London.”

Tesla’s New Monarch of Machines - New York Herald - Oct. 15, 1911:

”With a thousand horse power engine, weighing only one hundred pounds, imagine the possibilities in automobiles, locomotives and steamships. In the space now occupied by the engines of the Lusitania twenty-five times her 80,000 horse power could be developed, were it possible to provide boiler capacity sufficient to furnish the necessary steam”.

And it makes the aeroplane practical,— I suggested.

”Not the aeroplane, the flying machine,— responded Dr. Tesla. —Now you have struck the point in which I am most deeply interested—the object toward which I have been devoting my energies for more than twenty years—the dream of my life. It was in seeking the means of making the perfect flying machine that I developed this engine”.

”The aeroplane is fatally defective. It is merely a toy—a sporting play-thing. It can never become commercially practical. It has fatal defects. One is the fact that when it encounters a downward current of air it is helpless. The —hole in the air— of which aviators speak is simply a downward current, and unless the aeroplane is high enough above the earth to move laterally but can do nothing but fall”.

”The flying machine of the future—my flying machine—will be heavier than air, but it will not be an aeroplane. It will have no wings. It will be substantial, solid, stable. You cannot have a stable airplane. The gyroscope can never be successfully applied to the airplane, for it would give a stability that would result in the machine being torn to pieces by the wind, just as the unprotected aeroplane on the ground is torn to pieces by a high wind”.

”You might see it on the ground and you would never guess that it was a flying machine. Yet it will be able to move at will through the air in any direction with perfect safety, higher speeds than have yet been reached, regardless of weather and oblivious of —holes in the air— or downward currents. It will ascend in such currents if desired. It can remain absolutely stationary in the air, even in a wind, for great length of time. Its lifting power will not depend upon any such delicate devices as the bird has to employ, but upon positive mechanical action”.

You will get stability through gyroscopes? I asked.

”Through gyroscopic action of my engine, assisted by some devices I am not yet prepared to talk about”, he replied.

”Powerful air currents that may be deflected at will, if produced by engines and compressors sufficiently light and powerful, might lift a heavy body off the ground and propel it through the air, I ventured, wondering if I had grasped the inventor’s secret”.

Dr. Tesla smiled an inscrutable smile.

”All I have to say on that point is that my airship will have neither gas bag, wings nor propellers, he said. It is the child of my dreams, the product of years of intense and painful toil and research. I am not going to talk about it any further. But whatever my airship may be, here at least is an engine that will do things that no other engine ever has done, and that is something tangible”.

Tesla’s new device like bolts of Thor - New York Times - December 8, 1915:

”He is not yet ready to give the details of the engine which he says will render fruitless any military expedition against a country which possesses it. Suffice it to say that the destructive invention will go through space with a speed of 300miles per second, a manless airship without propelling engine or wings, sent by electricity to any desired point of the globe on its errand of destruction, if destruction its manipulator wishes to effect.”

Tesla Tells How We May Fly 8 Miles High At 1000 Miles An Hour - Reconstruction - July 1, 1919

”The idea is to fly at a great height where the air is rarefied, and therefore much less power is required to propel the machine through it”.

”At a height of eight miles the decrease of oxygen can be overcome for both engine and aviator”.

”The application of wireless power for aerial propulsion will do away with a great deal of complication and waste, and it is difficult to imagine that a more perfect means will ever be found to transport human beings to great distances economically. The power supply is virtually unlimited, as any number of power plants can be operated together, supplying energy to airships just as trains running on tracks are now supplied with electrical energy through rails or wires”.

”In the future nations will fight each other thousands of miles apart. No soldier will see his enemy. In fact future wars will not be conducted by men directly but by the forces which if let loose may well destroy civilization completely. If war comes again, I look for the extensive use of self-propelled air vehicles carrying enormous charges of explosive which will be sent from any point to another to do their destructive work, with no human being aboard to guide them. The distance to which they can be sent is practically unlimited and the amount of explosive they can carry is likewise practically unlimited. It is practicable to send such an air vessel say to a distance of four or five thousand miles and so control its course either gyroscopically or electrically that it will land at the exact spot where it is intended to have it land, within a few feet, and its cargo of explosive can there be detonated. “This cannot be done by means of the present wireless plants, but with a proper plant it can be done”

Tesla, 75, Predicts New Power Source - New York Times - July 5th, 1931

”Mr. Tesla added he has devoted a great deal of time to experimentation with rocket-propelled ships and has designed a number of machines “with practical objects in view.”

”A great development in this field may be confidently expected,” he said. “With such machines it will be practicable to attain speeds of nearly a mile a second through the rarefied medium above the stratosphere.

”I anticipate that such machines will be of tremendous importance in international conflicts of the future. I foresee that in times not too distant wars between various countries will be carried on without a single combatant passing the border. At this very time it is possible to construct such infernal machines which will carry any desired quantity of poisoned gases and explosives, launch them against a target thousands of miles away and destroy a whole city”.

Radio Power will Revolutionize the World - Modern Mechanics - July, 1934

”Future rocket planes may circle the globe in 5 1/2 hours. At 3600 m.p.h the plane travels about 19,500 miles. Earth’s rotation adds 5500 to the total”.

Moving objects by sound ( The sound Carousel ) is an illustration of the power of "Helmholtz Resonance". To learn more about Sound and vibration visit www.soundandvibration.se
In 1863, Helmholtz published On the Sensations of Tone, once again demonstrating his interest in the physics of perception. This book influenced musicologists into the twentieth century. Helmholtz invented the Helmholtz resonator to identify the various frequencies or pitches of the pure sine wave components of complex sounds containing multiple tones.[11]
Helmholtz showed that different combinations of resonator could mimic vowel sounds: Alexander Graham Bell in particular was interested in this but, not being able to read German, misconstrued Helmholtz’ diagrams as meaning that Helmholtz had transmitted multiple frequencies by wire—which would allow multiplexing of telegraph signals—whereas, in reality, electrical power was used only to keep the resonators in motion. Bell failed to reproduce what he thought Helmholtz had done but later said that, had he been able to read German, he would not have gone on to invent the telephone on the harmonic telegraph principle.

Helmholtz studied the phenomena of electrical oscillations from 1869 to 1871, and in a lecture delivered to the Naturhistorisch-medizinischen Vereins zu Heidelberg (Natural History and Medical Association of Heidelberg) on April 30, 1869 titled On Electrical Oscillations he indicated that the perceptible damped electrical oscillations in a coil joined up with a Leyden jar were about 1/50th of a second in duration.[17]
In 1871, Helmholtz moved from Heidelberg to Berlin to become a professor in physics. He became interested in electromagnetism and the Helmholtz equation is named for him. Although he did not make major contributions to this field, his student Heinrich Rudolf Hertz became famous as the first to demonstrate electromagnetic radiation. Oliver Heaviside criticised Helmholtz’s electromagnetic theory because it allowed the existence of longitudinal waves. Based on work on Maxwell’s equations, Heaviside pronounced that longitudinal waves could not exist in a vacuum or a homogeneous medium. Heaviside did not note, however, that longitudinal electromagnetic waves can exist at a boundary or in an enclosed space.[18]
There is even a topic by the name “Helmholtz optics”, based on the Helmholtz equation.

Observe a demonstration of Helmholtz Resonators from the Physical Science Collection at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. This is a set of 16 Helmholtz resonators. Made from sections of brass that were spun on a lathe, they are wonderfully light and easy to hold.
The perfection of tuning, considered as an art, can be carried forward indefinitely…
tuning is my specialty, and it is very likely that I might have done better than many others,
yet I felt that I ought to still further improve in the knowledge of the same and in the skill of applying it.

In some occasion Tesla also suggested to use helium for de zeppelin designs instead of hydrogen which is inflammable and extremely explosive.

Can Radio Ignite Balloons? - by Nikola Tesla - Electrical Experimenter - October 1, 1919

”Why do the naval and other authorities allow such forms of aircraft to use an ex- plosive gas like hydrogen? A short time ago the press was filler? with the wondrous stories of how the U. S. Government experts had perfected the manufacture of the new! and non-inflammable balloon gas-heliumlium, to such an extent that it was very cheap and readily obtainable in quantities. Funny, how these “new” inventions require so long a time to reach the public and those who need them. Helium, extracted from illuminating gas, is not new or wonderful at all”.

Please watch the video below, the work of Helmholtz (audio resonance)  leads to Hertz and to then to Nikola Tesla and the demonstration of radio control and radio.

This demonstration with sound waves demonstrates the wireless transmission of energy, here by way of the medium of the air itself.

In 1898, at an exhibition at Madison Square Garden, Nikola Tesla demonstrated a small unmanned boat that was radio controlled. In a bit of showmanship, Tesla entertained the audience to make it seem that the boat could apparently obey commands from the audience but it, was in fact, controlled by Tesla interpreting the verbal requests and sending appropriate frequencies to tuned circuits in the boat.[1] John Hays Hammond Jr is regarded as the father of radio control due to experiments as an apprentice of Thomas Edison at the age of twelve. Hammond was a close friend of Tesla and they performed experiments together in his lab located in his castle. He learned a great deal from his exposure to Tesla. Tesla was granted a US patent on this invention on July 1, 1898.

The Ghost Army & Deceptive Sounds


"Imagine being assigned to create a massive trompe l’oeil, and not just a painting, but a complex, 3-D, multimedia installation spread out over many kilometres. Imagine that it must convince an attentive and discerning audience to believe in and interact with something that is not really there. Further imagine that your workspace is in the middle of a war zone, and that thousands of lives depend on your success. Also, imagine that next week you will be asked to do it again. That, in a nutshell, was the mission given to the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, also known as the Ghost Army, one of the most unusual units to serve in the United States Army during the Second World War. Included in its ranks were art students, sound engineers and Hollywood writers, and its ultimate goal was to use creativity, performance, and sleight of hand to save lives and help win the war."

"To complete the experience, the Ghost Army also used sonic deception, helped by engineers from Bell Labs. The team recorded sounds of various units onto a series of sound-effects records, each up to 30 minutes long. The sounds were recorded on state-of-the-art equipment, and then played back with powerful amplifiers and speakers that could be heard 15 miles (24 km) away. Wind speed and direction had to be factored in, so the army created a mobile weather station to accompany the sonic unit. (Photo courtesy of the US National Archives.)"

"Hollywood and the United Kingdom are connected via the American industry's use of British source material, an exchange of talent, and Hollywood's financial investment in British facilities and productions. The American studios have had their own bases in the UK in the past, such as MGM-British, and Warner Bros.owned shares in British distributor Warner-Pathé, once part of the Associated British Pictures Corporation."

Hollywood and the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The United Kingdom has had a significant film industry for over a century. While film production reached an all-time high in 1936,[6] the "golden age" of British cinema is usually thought to have occurred in the 1940s, during which the directors David Lean,[7] Michael Powell, (with Emeric Pressburger)[8] and Carol Reed[9] produced their most highly acclaimed work. Many British actors have achieved international fame and critical success, including Maggie SmithMichael Caine,[10] Sean Connery[11] and Kate Winslet.[12] Some of the films with the largest ever box office returns have been made in the United Kingdom, including the second and third highest-grossing film series (Harry Potterand James Bond).[13]

The identity of the British industry, and its relationship with Hollywood, has been the subject of debate. The history of film production in Britain has often been affected by attempts to compete with the American industry. The career of the producer Alexander Korda was marked by this objective, the Rank Organisation attempted to do so in the 1940s, and Goldcrest in the 1980s. Numerous British-born directors, including Alfred Hitchcock and Ridley Scott,[14]and performers, such as Charlie Chaplin[15] and Cary Grant, have achieved success primarily through their work in the United States."

Both used as ‘theaters” of war. Both nearby the capitals of the film industry. London and Hollywood. Both were obviously used as sets for the fake footage everyone watched in theater chains as ’news’ back then and what we see on all the screens we can watch now.

The Channel Islands- Used For Location Filming for Fake War Footage of the Pacific “Theater” of War? There’s a good chance this is exactly the case.

The United States Navy controls San Nicolas Island and San Clemente Island, and has installations elsewhere in the chain. During World War II all of southern California’s Channel Islands were put under military control, including the civilian-populated Santa Catalina where tourism was halted and established residents needed permits to travel to and from the mainland.[11] San Miguel Island was used as a bombing range[12] and Santa Barbara Island as an early warning outpost under the presumed threat of a Japanese attack on California.[13] San Clemente Island was used to train the Navy's first amphibious force to prepare for Pacific combat against the Japanese in World War II.[14] San Nicolas Island has been used since 1957 as a launch pad for research rockets. San Nicolas was considered out of eight possible locations as the site of the Trinity nuclear test.[15] Santa Rosa Island was used in 1952 as a base for the USAF 669th AC&W Squadron and they operated two Distant Early Warning FPS-10 radars from the hilltops there. In 1955 another FPS-3 search radar was added, and in 1956, a GPS-3 search radar was installed. A new MPS-14 long-range height-finder radar was installed in 1958. The base was shut down in March 1963, when the 669th was moved to Vandenberg AFB In Lompoc, California. The islands still house US Navy SEALs training facilities and continues to use the Naval Auxiliary Landing Field located on San Clemente Island.”


The Channel Islands- Used For Location Filming for Fake War Footage of the Atlantic “Theater” of War? There’s a good chance this is exactly the case.

"The Channel Islands (NormanÎles d'la MancheFrenchÎles Anglo-Normandes or Îles de la Manche[note 1]) are an archipelago in the English Channel, off the French coast of Normandy. They include two Crown dependencies: the Bailiwick of Jersey, consisting of Jersey, the largest of the islands; and the Bailiwick of Guernsey, consisting of GuernseyAlderneySark and some smaller islands. They are considered the remnants of the Duchy of Normandy, and although they are not part of the United Kingdom,[1] it is responsible for the defence and international relations of the islands."

"The islands were the only part of the British Commonwealth to be occupied by the German Army during World War II.

The British Government demilitarised the islands in June 1940 and the Lieutenant-Governors were withdrawn on 21 June, leaving the insular administrations to continue government as best they could under impending military occupation.[12]

Before German troops landed, between 30 June and 4 July 1940, evacuation took place (many young men had already left to join the Allied armed forces): 6,600 out of 50,000 left Jersey while 17,000 out of 42,000 left Guernsey.[13] Thousands of children were evacuated with their schools to England and Scotland.

The population of Sark largely remained where they were;[12] but in Alderney, the entire population, save for six persons, left. In Alderney, the occupying Germans built four camps in which over 700 people out of a total worker population of about 6,000 died. Due to the destruction of documents, it is impossible to state how many forced workers died in the other islands.[12] Alderney had the only Nazi concentration camps on British soil.[14][15]

The Royal Navy blockaded the islands from time to time, particularly following the Invasion of Normandy in June 1944. There was considerable hunger and privation during the five years of German occupation, particularly in the final months when the population was close to starvation. Intense negotiations resulted in some humanitarian aid being sent via the Red Cross, leading to the arrival of Red Cross parcels in the supply ship SS Vega in December 1944.

The German occupation of 1940–45 was harsh: over 2,000 Islanders were deported by the Germans,[12] some Jews were sent to concentration campsPartisanresistance and retribution, accusations of collaboration, and slave labour also occurred. Many Spaniards, initially refugees from the Spanish Civil War, were brought to the islands to build fortifications.[16][17] Later, Russians and Central Europeans[who?] continued the work.[17] Many land mines were laid, with 65,718 land mines laid in Jersey alone.[18]

There was no resistance movement in the Channel Islands on the scale of that in mainland France. This has been ascribed to a range of factors including the physical separation of the Islands, the density of troops (up to one German for every two Islanders), the small size of the Islands precluding any hiding places for resistance groups, and the absence of the Gestapo from the occupying forces. Moreover, much of the population of military age had joined the British Army already.

The end of the occupation came after VE-Day on 8 May 1945, Jersey and Guernsey being liberated on 9 May. The German garrison in Alderney were left until 16 May, and it was one of the last of the Nazi German remnants to surrender.[19] The first evacuees returned on the first sailing from Great Britain on 23 June,[12] but the people of Alderney were unable to start returning until December 1945. Many of the evacuees who returned home had difficulty reconnecting with their families after five years of separation."
