Recently I came across a 9/11 Truth Action Project article (otherwise known as TAP) tweeted by one of its organizers Dwayne Deets of San Diego, also a member and head of the 9/11 Truth group there. The article is entitled “Flight 93 and the Fake Crash of PSA 1771 which Presaged It“.
For myself, I am well-read, when it comes to the incident involving, Pacific Southwest Airlines Flight 1771, and only having to glance the title, I was excited to read it thinking that this was going to be a fair comparison to demonstrate that United Airlines Flight 93 did crash in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Unlike what is commonly believed by conspiracy theorists and even people outside the Truth movement, in which, that it was shot down rather than the passengers attempting to take control back of the plane, essentially thwarting the hijacker’s mission. Which, unfortunately, that theory alone is not “sensational” enough for some Truthers, who would rather claim all of Flight 93 crash scene was a fabricated hoax fully complicit by the United States Government.
But the TAP article, which was written by Alison Maynard, is a name I did not recognize at first, and it was not about diminishing any doubt that Flight 93 hadn’t crashed in Shanksville with comparison to PSA 1771, in fact, completely the opposite.
In the first part of the article, it says that in the beginning, she did not believe an airplane had crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Along with doubting of the scenario involving Todd Beamer’s “Let’s Roll” while only by picking 2 passenger phone calls out of many other calls that were made affirming that the hijacking took place. But she instantly proves her insanity doubting that planes could bury itself or “melt” into the sides of the Twin Towers.
Maynard’s approach to the matter of Flight 93 is not only incomplete but dishonest as one would expect because from the beginning she states that her initial problem was that there was no plane, which is the same thing we’ve heard over and over again, as a response to the fine and small pieces of debris found.
This initial problem detected with the anomalous looking crash site at Shanksville didn’t come from her naturally it came from the mainstream media, mostly CBS and CNN, reporting on scene and days after, asserting that NORAD may have possibly intercepted Flight 93 and shot it down, that the military and White House were being quiet about it.
But of course, how could the media have avoided such odd details about Shanksville not to mention and compare it to all plane crashes they have covered, without having known what occurred on the final moments of the flight regardless of passenger phone call details was unavailable at the time. When also none of the black-boxes or flight data recorders had been recovered yet, in order to produce the final read-out of what flight path and speeds flight 93 was traveling at before crashing.
According to Maynard’s incredulity, all of it doesn’t matter. Only because she has already ruled out any technical reading, assuming that the flight, through a data recorder that was found, had no identification number and its contents were never released. Which is not true at all, as well as asserting that only one hijacker passport was found, when there were actually two hijacker passports discovered.
Arrogantly, her accusations of altered and coerced coverage just on the planes that struck the Twin Towers, it’s obvious that Maynard would want to avoid who initially instigated skepticism about Flight 93. As it would seem she would already be implicating the media as being part of the grand conspiracy and cover-up, in which she does not want to give the press any credit or thankful acknowledgment to their foresight on Flight 93 in Shanksville.
She states in her article that she has more still to write about flight 93 In the future, in which I would certainly tell her, don’t bother, because you haven’t even gotten the stats right so far.
But what does she say will be a teaser when she does write more about Flight 93?
She states that as of September 2019, Flight 93 passengers Todd Beamer, Sandy Bradshaw, and the pilot, Jason Dahl; still have listings and current addresses in whitepages.com which looks to be a basic People Finder website. Data-driven sites such as White Pages, will not always be up to date, however, considering that the deceased cannot correct or delete the profile themselves, something as obvious as this seemingly never crossed Maynard’s mind at the time of her constructing this “article”.
Regardless that she’s wrong assuming that all Flight 93 passenger calls were done by cell phones, or that she’s not entirely addressing or even throwing away all other physical and eyewitness evidence to Flight 93 having been hijacked and crashing. Does just looking into people-finder website sound like the normal angle or route of inquiry a real investigator would practice confirming such a claim of pseudocide?
Carrying on with the article, as to the absence of identifiable plane parts or bodies, in contrast with Flight 93 in Shanksville, she states that two other 9/11 researchers in recent have brought up an LA Times news article and photo of the crash site to the suicide hijacking of Pacific Southwest Airlines flight 1771 in San Luis Obispo California.
Maynard says she was only directed to one photo, but then found a few more ones in blurry detail.
But unlike Maynard’s article, to get a fuller scoop on what happened; PSA Flight 1771, it was a scheduled flight along the West Coast, from Los Angeles to San Francisco. It departed from LAX at 15:31 PST, scheduled to arrive at SF International Airport at 16:43. On December 7, 1987, it crashed in San Luis Obispo County near Cayucos, after being hijacked by passenger David A. Burke, a disgruntled former employee of USAir.
USAir had recently purchased Pacific Southwest Airlines and terminated Burke, who was a ticketing agent, for petty theft of $69 from in-flight cocktail receipts; he had also been suspected of involvement with a narcotics ring. After meeting with his manager Ray Thomson in an unsuccessful attempt to be reinstated, Burke purchased a ticket on PSA Flight 1771; a daily flight from LAX to SF. Thomson was a passenger on the flight, which he regularly took for his daily commute from his workplace at LAX to his home in the SF.
All 43 passengers and crew aboard the plane died, five of whom, including the two pilots, were presumably shot dead before the plane crashed with a Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44 Magnum revolver that Burke had borrowed from a coworker, and was able to bypass the normal passenger security checkpoint at LAX. After boarding the plane, Burke wrote a message on an airsickness bag, but it is not known if he gave the message to Thomson to read before shooting him. The note read:
“Hi Ray. I think it’s sort of ironical that we end up like this. I asked for some leniency for my family. Remember? Well, I got none and you’ll get none.”
There’s a lot more to the story, but Maynard is somehow confused by the LA Times article, where the subsequent discovery of the Magnum revolver found at the crash site also had a small piece of skin wedged between the trigger and barrel. They were able to determine by fingerprints two days later, proving that it belonged to David Burke who already had a criminal record, and also too easy to find on the flight manifest.
The reason for Maynard’s confusion is that she hasn’t done any basic research on the crime itself and doesn’t bother addressing what authorities believed took place on board PSA 1771.
Instead, she refers to an obnoxiously anti-Semitic Christian conspiracy blog “Fathers Manifesto” where it states “the crash of PSA 1771 was the end of Pacific Southwest Airlines”, which was obviously untrue.
PSA agreed to merge with USAir which was completed in 1987 after competitors Western and AirCal Airlines were purchased by Delta Airlines in America in 1986, a year before the crash of PSA Flight 1771. PSA’s last flight was in April of 1988.
In fact, PSA had a rather interesting history being exclusive to the West Coast, known as “The World’s friendliest Airlines”, where it’s pilots and stewardesses were encouraged to joke with the passengers. As well as its flight attendants, who were known for wearing brightly colored uniforms in miniskirts and hot pants. The airline had operated from 1949 till 1988.
PSA 1771 wasn’t just the last and only accident or crash to have occurred from the long-defunct airline. There had been three other incidents during the ’60s and 70’s prior, as well as 3 hijackings, one of which being PSA Flight 710 that was thwarted while on the ground in San Francisco by FBI agents who stormed the plane killing both hijackers and a passenger by accident, as well as wounding two other passengers, one being the actor Victor Sen Yung, who was a character known as ‘Hop Sing’ on the television western series, Bonanza.
But what does Maynard do once again?
She refers to the White Pages site because now she’s been put on a doomed path looking for insider trading based on this “Father’s Manifesto” myth without any mention of ownership and competing Airlines. Instead, she’s looking at the passengers in what she already perceives in comparison to Flight 93 as hoax theories. Again, inventing a hoax to support another invented hoax that’s never been proven, and can never be a realistic possibility.
She brings up the fact that that there were four Chevron executives officials and claims that they all have current addresses as if they were alive, or had lived till after the incident claiming that she cannot find any obituaries, without any indication of what her limitations are for finding such things.
Maynard even brings up the PSA 1771 pilot, Capt. Gregg Nelson Lindamood and states she wasn’t able to find an obituary but that there was no White Page listing for him, nor any military listing under his name in ancestry.com.
She claims that the pilot was decorated in 1988, the following year after the crash, but of course, these things are easily explainable as inaccurate data, particularly when dealing with age-old archives well before the invention of the internet. She makes a wild accusation that this was all part of scamming the airlines for 3.9 million dollars he and his family got for their lawsuit.
She instantly calls this incident with PSA flight 1771 a hoax insinuating that it’s a common “psy-op”? Well, where has there ever been a proven hoax of mass murder in the past, to suggest psyops are often?
And she can’t even make up her mind as to what this supposed hoax, it’s all internally contradicting theories because in addition to asserting Burke was a participant in his own pseudocide (even while bothering to look at his relatives current status), is that when addressing Burke as the shooter bringing the gun on board, Maynard says “the point of the psy-op is thus: more security is necessary so we won’t get these crazies with guns on planes”. That it had to do with travel restrictions, which is absolutely ridiculous on multiple levels and again reiterates her not just looking at the basic information that’s out there.
The main thing that resulted in the incident of PSA 1771, had prompted many large corporations to create policies to forbid travel by multiple executives on the same flight. Several federal laws were passed after the crash, including a law that required the immediate seizure of all airline and airport employee credentials after an employee’s termination from an airline or airport position, due to the likelihood that Burke still had unrestricted access of LAX after being fired and was able to bring the weapon onboard PSA 1771 evading any security measures. And the policy was also implemented stipulating that all airline flight crew and airport employees were to be subject to the same security measures as airline passengers.
But past all the passenger crisis actor nonsense, Maynard claims she has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for all the information regarding the investigation of PSA 1771 from the FBI, and that she is still awaiting a response. Which begs the question, why even write an article on this ordeal if she hasn’t completed accessing the information she’s looking for?
She also says that she has filed FOIA to the National Transportation Safety Board because it does not show up an accident docket on their website as an accident, which could likely be because the incident with the PSA 1771 was no accident. But the NTSB responded to her, assuring that everything was available on the website where she acknowledges it and that there is one five-page report about PSA 1771 on the website, but it does not satisfy her, because she expects hundreds of photos and scientific analysis of the crash, even expecting an analysis of the flight path and cockpit voice recording.
But you see, those sorts of inquiries (or really irrational skepticism) would be unnecessary if she watched two basic documentaries that have thoroughly documented the case.
A UK Channel 4 television series called ‘Black Box’ which was first TV program to recount air crashes, in the last episode called “Sky Crimes” on July 22, 1998, covers PSA flight 1771 plus the attempted hijacking of FedEx Flight 705, plus even Pan Am Flight 103 briefly.
The other is ‘Mayday’, also known as ‘Air Crash Investigations’ outside of the U.S. and Canada and also known as ‘Air Emergency ‘or ‘Air Disasters’ (Smithsonian Channel) in the U.S., it’s a Canadian documentary series that also recounts air crashes, near-crashes, fires, hijackings, bombings and other mainly flight-related disasters and crises. Their episode “I’m the Problem”, from February 10, 2012, is on PSA Flight 1771
Adam Fitzgerald, a 9/11 writer I often work with, has also written an article addressing all the circumstances with Flight 93, as well as TAP and also Maynard which I refer everyone here to read in case they need to refresh their memory about Flight 93 and Shanksville and still have doubts.
But after having viewed those documentaries on PSA 1771 already recognizing what would be considered the anomalous looking official account of Flight 93, apply this quiz and ask yourself if the answers regarding PSA 1771 are in the same or similar conditions found with Flight 93 at Shanksville:
- What kind of aviation accident or incident was PSA Flight 1771?
Answer: suicide hijacking, just like Flight 93
- What was the average size of the debris from PSA Flight 1771?
Answer: small, handheld size, just like what was found in Shanksville with Flight 93
- What direction did PSA Flight 1771 crash into the ground?
Answer: straight down in a nosedive, just like Flight 93
- How fast was the PSA Flight 1771 going when it crashed?
Answer: 720 miles per hour, breaking the sound barrier, where Flight 93 crashed at 563 to 580 miles per hour, nearly breaking the sound barrier.
- How big was the impact hole that PSA Flight 1771 made?
Answer: about the size and shape of the plane widthwise of PSA 1771, just like it’s size with Flight 93 in Shanksville
- How far did the NTSB and FBI find debris from PSA Flight 1771’s crash site?
Answer: 7 to 8 miles away, where some of the same types of light insulation debris were found about 2 miles away near Indian Lake in Shanksville.
As one of my longtime fellow co-activist confidants, Ed Brotherton of We Are Change Los Angeles has put it, you couldn’t get any more of an “Apples to Apples” comparison between Flight 93 and PSA 1771. And that is essentially all that was ever needed for anyone who ever doubted Flight 93 had ever crashed there, rather that it was shot down or in the most idiotic conclusion, it being a mock plane crash hoax. Of course the newscasters of CNN and CBS like anyone else, we’re likely unfamiliar with the case of PSA 1771.
And anyone who’s been a really long time committed 9/11 Truther would already know that the San Luis Obispo area, in the Central Coast of California where PSA 1771 crashed, had already gained some notoriety in the Truth movement being the first city to ever housed an entire Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth billboard. Which even for myself having known and networked with different activist throughout the state of California, I’ve actually been acquainted with the head of Central Coast 9/11 Truth which became We Are Change San Luis Obispo as well as SLO 9/11 Truth, longtime resident Rich Besco, where in the past several years after being familiar with PSA 1771 I had notified him about the incident and had already asked him if he had been familiar with it. And it turns out he was.
Besco who was never thoroughly aware of all the circumstances regarding the hijacking of PSA 1771 and never dawned on him to consider the anomalous similarity with the Flight 93 in Shanksville years later, has told me, particularly in reaction to also reading Maynard’s TAP article, that his gut reaction after physically seeing the PSA 1771 crash site for himself, was that it was legit, but it did seem weird that there were no visible bigger pieces like engine rotors. He stated “just a shitload of random little bits of aluminum skin scattered very widely like confetti”.
But the most pathetic thing Maynard addresses at the end of her article adding that she thinks PSA 1771 was fake is that a real plane crash “would look like Pan Am 700 at Lockerbie”
This is wrong on so many levels, first of all, what she meant and also linked, was images of Pan Am flight 103, not Pan AM 700, (there is no PA 700). But PA 103 is not a plane crash at all. It is known as the bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie Scotland, which was a tragic incident that I continually research and have been for the last 2 years, in which case, there is a legitimate cover-up that’s been known ever since, which the bombing has basically been framed on Moammar Gaddafi and Libyan intelligence for being the masterminds.
Unlike PSA 1771, PA 103 was a real crime that had foreign policy ramifications, likely an attempted pretext for war against Libya, which I don’t have time to get into all the specifics. But again, it is not a plane crash, it is a bombing of a jumbo jet passenger airliner that occurred over 30,000 ft above Scotland on December 22nd, 1988, in which the plane basically broke up into 5 large sections in midair, with other debris even found hundreds of miles away. All 259 passengers were killed, as well as 11 people in their homes in the town of Scotland where large sections of debris fell onto there homes and neighborhood in Lockerbie, being engulfed in flames.
But If we are going to use Maynard’s logic of Flight 93 as a hoax, which we all know that ultimately 9/11 has been used as a pretext for the war on terrorism, why not also outlandishly suggest Pan Am 103 was fake or a hoax if she can already retroactively attempt to imply that PSA 1771 was a hoax which only happened almost exactly a year before it when PSA 1771 has nothing to do with foreign policy.
Also with the bombing of PA 103, it’s what also drastically changed in upgrading and adding extra airport security measures (as did 9/11 thirteen years later) unlike what she has asserted with PSA 1771. These measures we’re even extendedly exercised all the way up into the Gulf War, unlike Maynard’s pathetic attempt to try to suggest PSA 1771 was alleged insider trading and cases of life insurance fraud. You can see this very well dramatized in an HBO movie from 1990, where Pan Am’s security concerns before the bombing of Pan Am 103, we’re projected towards European travel and terrorist threats coming from the Middle East.
But ultimately this begs the question just what kind of credentials does Allison Maynard have in the 9/11 truth movement and why would someone emphasize and spend so much time chasing after the victims’ names and families (crisis actor hunting), rather than viewing all the public information about PSA 1771 that’s already out there like the documentary I’ve already addressed?
Well just having done some basic searching for her name on Facebook she does come up, but not with her own profile. Rather from several posts for the Facebook page ‘Sandy Hook facts.com’ a website dedicated to exposing the frauds of the Hook hoax theories, the garbage fringe which has not only destroyed the credibility of many in the 9/11 Truth movement who ascribe to such an asinine conspiracy theory but has also jeopardized the genre of conspiracy theories throughout YouTube and social media, as a consequence with the de-platforming and ongoing lawsuits against long-time Judas goat and now snake-oil supplement salesman, Alex Jones.
So without having to explain what were the Sandy Hook Facts.com page posts indicating, by simply doing a Google search of Allison Maynard and Sandy Hook, the second search result is a website called ‘Social Media’s Most Wanted’.
Maynard is a disbarred and disgraced attorney who had been helping both senile Wolfgang Halbig and Jim Fetzer, two of the other prominent Sandy Hook propagandists who have already deservingly lost a great deal in lawsuits from the Sandy Hook parents while there are still currently other in pending cases against them.
Maynard has practiced law without a license, she isn’t registered with any state. She has continued to write for Jim Fetzer’s blog on Sandy Hook. The Social Media’s Most Wanted link provides enough information proving Maynard is an out and out, fraud.
So this is what TAP has recruited in their ranks,? People who have helped purport Sandy Hook conspiracy theory content all over social media such as Facebook and YouTube, which have only created a greater obstacle now for the entire 9/11 Truth Movement and legitimate conspiracy theories?
So I ask. Is this TAP, or CRAP?
