Air France tells its pilots like it is regarding AF447

AF A330 fin.jpgIn a quintessentially French document, Air France’s heads of flight ops and safety have written to the carrier’s pilots telling them what the company thinks about the AF447 situation. In a lengthy analysis of the current position, bordering on the philosophical, Pierre-Marie Gauron and Etienne Lichtenberger basically say the public debate in the media and elsewhere is misguided, pilots should rise above it, nobody knows exactly what happened and may never do, and AF and Airbus are doing everything reasonable in the circumstances.

Here’s the French version, released to Le Point magazine at least, following the leaking of parts of the document. Sorry, but I don’t have time right now to translate it myself, so here’s a Google translation which is not too bad.

The French attitude to this kind of horrific affair is roughly: these are serious matters deserving a serious response; let’s be grown-up about it; and let’s rise above the public debate. As a journalist I like dealing with French industry more or less for those exact reasons. But French interests often come unstuck in the English-language media which doesn’t really view things the same way.

    Looks like an outstanding document for sure…

    (disclaimer: I am not an expert at all in the field. But I second Kieran’s opinion about the philosophical tone of the memo. I really whish everybody who can read French will give a look at it.)

    Dear Sirs:

    One month before that terrorist attack happened, a fake warning on terrorist threat against the airport of Buenos Aires was aired on TV channels of South America, specially Argentine and Brazil. Three weeks later the Federal Police of Brazil chased a member of al-Qaeda in São Paulo, the rotten mula (mule) known as president Lula (a decent president would not make question to be called by such nickname) ordered the minister of in-Justice who has ever been a communist terrorist and communist executive for the establishment of communism in Brazil, Tarso Genro, to release the member of al-Qaeda. Three days later the aircraft exploded into the air.

    The corpuses were never mentioned if they were putrified by water or carbonized. Some officers from Air Force state that they all were carbonized.

    The fact is that the conservative citizens of Brazil have discovered the story of up to 40 years of international and local conspiracy for the establishment of communism in Brazil and the people are revolted, but most of them feel fear to react. So to represent the real Brazilian citizens, the monarchs started making a simple movement to reestablish the real political system in Brazil, the catholic monarchy of the Orleans & Bragança, a very beautiful royal family that made Brazil to be the huge country it is and now that is being destroyed by Lula, Fidel, Chávez and their FARC. Brazil is in the middle to the end of the way to be a communist country worse than China, because their intention is to make Brazil a continental Colombia, and they have gotten that feat.

    So who could be the strong name to change Brazil back to its origin the Catholic monarchy? The current young prince who was in that aircraft. He was the target.

    It is not strange, but it is fact, when a huge scandal of Lula’s crimes come out to the stage, an aircraft is dismantled in the air or forced to be operated with engines faulty and overweight. In the case of TAM’s A320, several pilots were forced to operate that aircraft with several defects and one reverse blocked. What many people say is that the brakes of the A320 seemed very inefficient during the way to death. Inside of that aircraft was a deputy that was investigating Lula for co-participation in the sabotage against GOL’s 737-800 that was carried with many scientists and executives, just worker people of high level of skill. Lula was almost going to loose the elections, so the way was to create a way to turn the minds out of Geraldo Alckmin, his competitor. Although Alckmin had corroborated with Lula to hide his crimes (murdering of mayors Celso Daniel and Toninho do PT) and being accused for the creation of narco-terrorist factions in Brazil which are all linked to Lula’s political party the PT (Partido dos Trabalhadores) that co-work to FARC in Brazil (the result is the violence in Rio de Janeiro City, 50% the number of assassinations in the USA annually happen in the City of Rio). Lula is the “devilfather” (to not say godfather) of FARC in Brazil. The country has lost the respect to the right of private ownership, Lula pay FARC-linked terrorists from MST to invade farms, hijack farmers and their employees, and make strikes to block roads, make sabotages, and the Ministry of Justice that is filled with communists do absolutely nothing to protect the tax payers of Brazil.

    We are close to a generalized civil war, the Christian people want the country back to order and peace, and not being poured in a criminal system that will steal the right to private ownership to the criminals of the new world disorder.

    For my information, please visit my blog or Google for Nota Latina, Olavo de Carvalho, Farol da Democracia Representativa, Anti-Foro de São Paulo. You will find information that will make you feel shocked about today’s Brazil.

    Sincerely,

    A Língua! (The Tong!)

    Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m

    resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    Many thanks!
