- Official Assessment Supports NewsHawk on KEY
- FBI to Take EgyptAir Probe
- © 1999 NewsHawk® Inc. 11-16-99
- It's now being officially acknowledged that neither mechanical
failure nor pilot error was responsible for the destruction of EgyptAir
- Just TWO days AGO, the NTSB and other officials said
that the cockpit voice recorder had TOTALLY invalidated the possibility
of a hijacking or "suicide" attempt as causing the crash.
- Yet NOW, the NTSB is turning the investigation over to
the FBI as a criminal matter. So, what kind of criminal act are they talking
about, if no hijacking, suicide or the like occurred? It would stand to
reason that the only likely remaining possibility is that some external
agency targeted the jet. But with what?
- If an onboard bomb or missile punched a hole in the jet
at it's original cruising altitude, causing immediate decompression but
relatively little structural damage, aviation experts across the boards
state that IF the jet had to dive rapidly and suddenly to counteract decompression
it would have descended to around 10,000 feet: well below the 17,000 feet
the jet leveled off at before it climbed again to 24,000 feet. Furthermore,
to a one, professionals state there is NO conceivable reason why the jet
WOULD ascend at ALL if it had suffered decompression. The pilot and co-pilot,
cited as among the best in Egypt, OBVIOUSLY would know this elementary
fact. OBVIOUSLY, the jet did NOT suffer decompression prior to it's first
precipitous descent. Then WHY did the crew initiate the descent??
- If the jet were struck by a EM pulse, particle beam,
laser or positron ray, temporarily knocking out the primary computer system
which in turn caused the jets to sputter and misfire, then the crew did
EXACTLY what they should have done. They got to a lower altitude where
the air is thicker (more supportive) as quickly as possible and attempted
to reboot the craft's control computer, while SHUTTING DOWN the engines
so they could be restarted and operated properly.
- To quote from the Reuters article below: "...the
plane began a steep descent.... The final seconds of the tape then showed
the ENGINES BEING TURNED OFF AS THE PLANE BEGAN LEVELING OUT. Radar information
shows the plane then climbed for a brief period before making a final plunge
to the sea.
- "The final minutes of EgyptAir 990 have baffled
experienced pilots as it does NOT seem to be a rational response to any
CONCEIVABLE MECHANICAL PROBLEM with the plane.
- "If the dive from 33,000 feet (10,000 meters) was
in order to combat loss of cabin pressure, then the plane should have gone
down to 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) rather than climbing again at 16,700
(5,100 meters), the experts said.
- " 'This one is a real baffler,' said a 767 pilot
with a major airline." <snip
- Yeah it is, if you don't know the TRUE FACTS. There is
literally no other scenario which FITS THESE FACTS but the one NewsHawk
has made public.
- Obviously, they began to climb again after reaching 17,000
feet BECAUSE they were able to reboot the flight computer and restart the
engines, just as we reported. How else could the massively heavy jet begin
to climb again if the engines, which everyone says had been SHUT OFF, were
restarted? Peter Pan or Tinkerbelle helped out, maybe? Unlikely. THINK
ABOUT IT, people.
- Then at 24,000 feet almost the exact same sequence is
repeated, except this time the pulse, laser or particle hit was either
more severe or hit it's mark more accurately, rendering the primary onboard
computer system permanently inoperable.
- So the NTSB was really painted tightly into a corner,
because though they're saying now that apparently a "criminal act"
brought down the jet, any TYPICAL criminal act--EVEN a missile or onboard
explosive--which occurred at 33,000 feet when and where the trouble obviously
began, would almost certainly have caused decompression and WITHOUT DOUBT
the crew WOULD have responded quite differently than they in fact DID respond.
- The KNOWN actions of the crew fit to a "T"
the scenario laid out by NewsHawk in our article "Fl 990--What We
Know But Gov't, Media Won't Say".
- So, as for "criminal acts"--yes, there were
several, just as we reported. These criminal acts DID include the jet being
struck by a missile, but that was near the end of the entire sequence of
events, obviously NOT at the outset. The missile was the final blow, the
coup de grace, to ensure the absolute, total destruction of the craft.
- Certainly no "terrorist" group is operating
particle or pulse weapons in our country. Logical and careful reasoning
and analysis of the FACTS will show conclusively that the criminal acts
which it's now acknowledged DID cause the crash of EgyptAir Fl. 990 were
perpetrated by factions of the U.S. government, operating at Montauk.

- The posting titled "Controversial Explanation Of
Flt 990's Destruction Hits The Net" is not credible. John A. Quinn
bends facts on things generally known:
- "Just TWO days AGO, the NTSB and other officials
said that the cockpit voice recorder had TOTALLY invalidated the possibility
of a hijacking or "suicide" attempt as causing the crash."
- * Not true. There was no official statement at that time
from the NTSB, FBI, Boeing, EgyptAir or anybody else. There was a lot of
speculation by a lot of semi-official but unnamed people connected and
not connected with this crash, but no hard conclusions on anything.
- John A. Quinn gives incorrect information on the things
- "Obviously, they began to climb again after reaching
17,000 feet BECAUSE they were able to reboot the flight computer and restart
the engines, just as we reported. How else could the massively heavy jet
begin to climb again if the engines, which everyone says had been SHUT
OFF, were restarted? Peter Pan or Tinkerbelle helped out, maybe? Unlikely.
THINK ABOUT IT, people."
- * First, I have heard of no one who has said that the
engines were restarted. I'm guessing that an engine restart would be noted
on the flight data recorder, since an engine shutoff is recorded. There
is no evidence of a restart. Second, it is possible to have the aircraft
climb after an engine shutoff, given that the aircraft was going at near
supersonic speed. The aircraft is inherently a lifting body. The faster
the air passes over the wings, the greater the lift. Given the velocity
of the aircraft, no more air speed was needed. What was required was for
the pilots to "pull up" on the yoke.
- Given the "loose" treatment of the known facts
in this case, how can I believe Quinn's unconfirmed assertions?
- I speak as someone who believes that TWA Flight 800 was
shot down by a missle. In my eyes, a convincing case was made for this.
In the case of EgyptAir 990, I am not saying a third party did not bring
this plane down. I am saying that John A. Quinn has thus far not made a
credible case for it.

- WIRE:11/16/1999 12:13:00 ET FBI to Take EgyptAir Probe;
Criminal Act Suspected
- WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI will take control of the
EgyptAir Flight 990 crash investigation after the cockpit voice recorder
threw up information suggesting "a criminal act" may have caused
the disaster, officials said Tuesday.
- The National Transportation Safety Board, which had led
the probe into the Oct. 31 crash so far, will pull back to a supporting
role. Careful examination of the recorder tape showed someone making a
religious comment about death -- before the plane began its unusual plunge,
investigation sources said.
- The Cairo-bound Boeing 767 plane crashed in the Atlantic
Ocean off the Massachusetts coast, killing all 217 people on board. Its
dive from 33,OOO feet (10,000 meters) failed to fit mechanical emergency
- A government official said one of the two pilots appeared
to have left the cockpit when the religious utterance was made by a crew
- "One person may be involved in some criminal act,"
the official said.
- An official announcement of the probe's handover to the
FBI would likely come on later Tuesday, officials said.
- In Cairo, Ashraf Hussein, an EgyptAir pilot since 1985
who knew the pilots on Flight 990, discounted the possibility that the
pilots would have deliberately caused the crash.
- He said co-pilot Adel Anwar was 37 and due to get married
two days after the flight. "It had all been arranged. He had an apartment
ready. So it's out of the question he would kill himself or sabotage (the
- Hussein described the captain, Ahmed al-Habashi, as a
"very decent man."
- NTSB chairman Jim Hall had raised the possibility at
a news conference Monday that the probe might be handed over to the FBI.
- "We are concentrating our efforts on determining
from the evidence, including the cockpit voice recorder, whether or not
this investigation is to remain under the leadership of the National Transportation
Safety Board," he said.
- Although the FBI began conducting interviews and following
tips from the day of the crash it has so far publicly said it has had no
clear evidence of criminal wrongdoing.
- The cockpit voice recorder that has shed new light on
the crash was brought up from the ocean 60 miles (100 km) south off
- the island of Nantucket over the weekend.
- The flight data recorder, retrieved earlier last week,
showed the plane's autopilot being disengaged about 30 minutes after EgyptAir
990 left New York's John F. Kennedy Airport.
- About eight seconds later the plane began a steep descent
that exceeded the design speed of the plane. The final seconds of the tape
then showed the engines being turned off as the plane began leveling out.
Radar information shows the plane then climbed for a brief period before
making a final plunge to the sea.
- The final minutes of EgyptAir 990 have baffled experienced
pilots as it does not seem to be a rational response to any conceivable
mechanical problem with the plane.
- If the dive from 33,000 feet (10,000 meters) was in order
to combat loss of cabin pressure, then the plane should have gone down
to 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) rather than climbing again at 16,700 (5,100
meters), the experts said.

article are those of NewsHawk and do not necessarily represent those of
- The time has come for NewsHawk to break our silence on
the REAL causes of the demise of EgyptAir Flight 990.
- Our disgust and outrage at the continuing official state
terrorism perpetrated by covert of the U.S. government and at the sickening
disinformation and blatant lies spewed by government liars and their mass
media cohorts compels us to release this CRUCIAL information NOW.
- We've spent the past few days researching and investigating
what caused the jet to go plunging into the Atlantic Ocean early AM Oct.
- We've pieced together the picture with information from
a variety of different sources, all with a solid record or reliability
and integrity. There are certainly still some important pieces of the puzzle
missing--such as WHAT HAPPENED TO 217 BODIES--but the emerging picture
is becoming quite clear.
- At the outset we'll say this unequivocally. Flight 990
was INTENTIONALLY DESTROYED by elements of the federal government: in particular,
the U.S. Navy. To be more precise, the Boeing 767 jet was targeted and
hit TWICE, reportedly with a particle beam, by pro-New World Order Navy
factions in control of the Montauk Pt. clandestine underground base, and
then finished off with a missile, which blew the tail off the jet.
- It's also a FACT that BOTH flight recorders were recovered
within 48 hours of the crash by underwater recovery vessels from the Woods
Hole Oceanographic Institute in Woods Hole, Mass.
- Nearly everything being told the public about the recovery
of the recorders and most other aspects of the disaster by the government
via mass media outlets is nothing but a dog and pony show intended to buy
official liars time to come up with a "big lie" that will fly.
So far, every bullshit story they've tried to launch has NOT gone over.
- Over 200 pictures of the wreckage in the ocean floor
were taken by the Woods Hole vessel, NONE of which have been made public.
The pictures show the fuselage of the jet is in MANY, many pieces. None
of the jet's wings or engines are there, and NO bodies are visible. The
tail section in particular is utterly destroyed. These pictures have been
viewed by several of our sources who have no contact or connection to each
other at all. Their statements match completely. The nose of the jet is
said to be relatively intact, with the front windshield completely blown
- Now, for some background information. The MASSIVE clandestine
base underneath defunct, "abandoned" Montauk Air Force Station
with it's extensive inventory of ultra-high-tech, highly advanced technologies
and systems has been controlled by firmly pro-New World Order U.S. Navy
factions for over two years now. The prior occupants of the base were Omega/Faction
3 elements of the U.S. Air Force, who locked up and took the keys when
they vacated the premises in mid-1997. The base was subsequently FORCIBLY
entered and taken over by aforementioned Navy contingents in short order.
This subject was covered in great detail in our book PHOENIX UNDEAD, published
- On Nov. 3 NewsHawk published an article entitled "Fl.
990--One version of what happened", which brought out some speculative
information on WHY the jet was destroyed. THAT article precipitated the
most severe cyber-goon hack attack upon NewsHawk's email news service to
date, surpassing even the extensive harassment we incurred from our published
investigative reports on the crash of JFK Jr.'s plane. (The two air disasters
have more than a few things in common, as we shall explain.)
- The Nov. 3 article, included at the end of this article,
covered highly intriguing information and OBVIOUSLY hit quite close to
the mark due to the response it engendered from the cyber-goons; but in
this article we're putting aside such speculation and focusing on what
is known. We DO urge reading the Nov. 3 article, however.
- Regardless of the exact reasons why Flight 990 was targeted
for destruction, here is what we KNOW. Slightly over a half-hour after
leaving New York, while cruising at 33,000 feet, the jet was hit for the
first time, most likely by a particle beam or high-powered laser. The firing
of the beam was verified by a surveillance team monitoring covert Navy
operations at Montauk. (This same team verified the particle beam was fired
THREE times the night JFK Jr.'s plane was destroyed off Martha's Vineyard
at 9:40 PM, July 16.)
- The first beam hit was NOT catastrophic, but among other
things it may have glitched the plane's PRIMARY computer system, causing
the jet's two computer-controlled engines to malfunction: as well it may
have punched a hole in the jet, causing instantaneous decompression. The
- The pilot and co-pilot, KNOWN to be some of the very
best pilots around and CITED as such by the Egyptian government and EgyptAir,
responded immediately and correctly to the emergency by taking the jet
down QUICKLY in a controlled dive while trying to reboot the computer control
system. As the engines are computer-controlled, they can NOT be left sputtering
and misfiring but MUST be SHUT DOWN before they can be restarted.
- The pilots WERE able to reboot the computer, shut off
AND restart the engines after leveling off at approximately 17,000 feet
and regained control of the craft. They then initiated an ascent, climbing
back up to 24,000 feet. At THAT point we're told the jet was hit yet AGAIN
by a particle beam; this time a much more severe hit which completely destroyed
the primary computer control system and almost certainly punched a hole
in the craft.
- The top-notch pilots AGAIN sought desperately to regain
control of the craft, being of course aware that ALL these craft have a
BACKUP computer system on a separate power supply. They initiated the same
kind of maneuver as before, but there was one crucial difference this time.
The craft was almost certainly decompressing at this point, and it would
have been IMPERATIVE to get the jet down to a much lower altitude FAST
- This brings up another aspect, which is that with both
engines out such a large craft can't get much below 7-8,000 feet and be
pulled out of a dive. There's just not enough room--it's too heavy and
DEFINITELY NOT a glider. Nevertheless the pilots struggled valiantly to
bring the plane lower in a controlled fashion and get the secondary, backup
computer system online-- fighting against time, gravity and panic.
- Incredibly, they might have been able to do it... except
for one thing. As the diving jet reached about 8,000 feet it was hit by
a missile which ripped the entire tail section apart, rendering it completely
uncontrollable and ensuring it's utter destruction. The jet spun wildly
out of control, both main wings being ripped off by the extreme air speed
and centrifugal forces and the fuselage plunged into the ocean.
- This scenario, as we've said, has been put together by
correlating information received from a number of different sources INCLUDING,
in an astonishing twist of fate, AN EYEWITNESS TO THE ENTIRE EVENT!!
- At this very time German national citizen was piloting
a small business jet along the northeast coast in this exact vicinity that
night, somewhat behind Fl. 990. He witnessed BOTH controlled, emergency
dive maneuvers executed by the pilots, although he wasn't completely certain
at first what was going on. He became aware however that the craft was
apparently in some distress, and changed his course slightly to maintain
closer proximity to Fl. 990 and a good view of what was happening. This
individual then picked up a VERY fast-moving blip on his radar screen coming
right towards both his plane AND the EgyptAir jet. Immediately concerned,
he performed some evasive maneuvers and watched as a missile passed his
plane and struck Fl. 990 in the aft/tail section, blowing the rear of the
jet to smithereens. He saw the jet plunge into the sea.
- This person returned to Germany soon afterwards and made
a statement there to Reuters news agency about what he had seen. It seems
clear he was terribly shaken by what he'd seen and afraid to make any statements
until back in his native Germany. This person was then visited by three
U.S. government agents, who told he that he DID NOT see what he saw, and
Reuters was ordered to NOT publish this witness's account.
- Furthermore, one of our primary sources, who provided
much of the information in our Nov. 3 article "Fl.. 990--One version
of what happened", which is reprinted below, received an email last
week which advised our source in no uncertain terms to cease and desist
in his investigation into the crash of Fl. 990 if he valued his health;
it was also stated that our sources actions were being monitored.
- Using sophisticated, classified computer programs, our
source and some associates were able to track that email back to it's starting
- The email was sent from a "George Mason".
- It was sent from the clandestine base at MONTAUK, through
a dedicated server in Washington D.C.!! BINGO!!
- This source has direct contact with the surveillance
team on duty monitoring Navy operations at Montauk. He has just received
word that a strike team forcibly removed the Navy from the subterranean
base at Montauk as of several days ago. There tenancy there at this point
has been TERMINATED. Too late, unfortunately, for Flight 990.
- We doubt that the criminally insane, vicious and psychopathic
elements responsible for destroying the jet do these things strictly for
fun. There were most assuredly definite reasons what the jet was destroyed,
although NewsHawk currently has no solid confirmation on what those reasons
were. One of the possible reasons was discussed in our Nov. 3 article.
Basically, this revolves around some exceptionally highly classified, ultra-advanced
technology being transported to the Giza Plateau in Egypt. This device
was urgently needed by anti-NWO forces who control at least part of the
MASSIVE, five-mile-deep underground facilities beneath Giza, as discussed
in our previous article.
- Other plausible reasons brought forth have to to with
attempts by New World Order elements to drastically impact the Mid-East
summit which got underway days after Fl. 990 went down.
- Yet others feel the jet was brought down as some kind
of ritualistic Masonic/Illuminati sacrifice. Knowing the penchant these
demented, inhuman lunatics have for killing several birds with one stone,
we'd say probably ALL THREE theories are most likely valid to some degree
- It's safe to say in a general way that some agency was
determined that SOMEONE or SOMETHING on the jet was NOT going to make it
back to Egypt. Yet as we've reported previously, several of our sources
say the urgently needed device DID make it to Giza, despite the destruction
of the jet.
- There are still some major unexplained mysteries about
- For one thing, this commercial airliner DEFINITELY made
at least one unscheduled stop at Edwards Air Force Base east of Los Angeles,
and according to sources, landed at one, perhaps even two OTHER military
facilities. The jet almost certainly stopped at ANDREWS AFB outside Washington,
D.C. before going on to N.Y. We've also been told that the jet landed at
White Sands missile base in New Mexico after leaving Edwards. Even ONE
such landing by a (foreign at that) commercial airliner at a military base
is literally unheard of unless there were a dire emergency: two or three
is completely beyond any and all bounds of normalcy.
- What's more, there were undeniably an extraordinary number
of foreign military personnel aboard this commercial flight: not ONLY 33
Egyptian officers but also military personnel from a number of OTHER Arab
- Then, there's the truly unusual issue of FBI psychologist
Ed McLaughlin, a specialist in grief counseling families of crash victims,
who got off the plane in N.Y.... just before it crashed. This individual
was standing in front of microphones discussing how he and EgyptAir were
going to handle notifying victims' families mere HOURS after he disembarked
and the flight crashed: an undeniably bizarre and suspicious aspect.
- What makes this even MORE suspicious is that in his initial,
EXTREMELY brief statement to the press, McLaughlin NEVER ONCE mentioned
that he had JUST BEEN ON THE FLIGHT!! CNN discovered the fact when going
over the passenger list and THEY were the ones who publicized this extraordinarily
odd fact, which was subsequently confirmed by all relevant parties and
agencies. WHY did McLaughlin avoid mentioning he had just gotten of the
doomed plane? Several sources have suggested to us McLaughlin may have
planted an onboard explosive before disembarking, which MAY have been a
factor in the disaster. (As we noted in our articles of the JFK Jr. crash,
agencies implementing such events have backup systems in place ready to
be deployed as insurance that one way or another, the bird is going down,
no matter what, even if one of the systems or devices of destruction were
to fail or just to make triply sure the target is completely destroyed.)
- There's yet ANOTHER massively bizarre aspect to the crash.
WHERE ARE THE 217 BODIES? Not only were NO bodies visible in classified
photos of the plane wreckage on the ocean floor, after 2 weeks it's INCONCEIVABLE
that bodies would not float to the surface. Only ONE body has supposedly
been recovered to date, and suspiciously, that body has NEVER BEEN IDENTIFIED.
Our sources speculate the jet may have been divested of most or all of
it's passengers before leaving N.Y., and perhaps of the top-secret device
it was transporting ALSO. However it happened, this device is said to have
made it to Egypt... one way or another, as we've reported,
- Other strange aspects of this case have been discussed
in several of our other articles, and the Boston Herald reported last Friday,
Nov. 12 -- http://www.bostonherald.com/bostonherald/nat/plan11121999.htm
-- that "federal criminal investigators probing the fatal crash of
EgyptAir 990 are focusing on UNUSUAL pre-flight BEHAVIOR by the plane's
FLIGHT CREW and are actively pursuing leads that suggest the disaster 'was
NOT AN ACCIDENT,' a source close to the investigation said yesterday."
- Public statements made by compromised or bought-off professional
(so-called) pilots, to the effect that the controlled dives and intentional
switching off of the two engines don't make sense, are utter lies. These
actions are EXACTLY what a well-trained pilot WOULD do in the eventuality
the plane experienced decompression and/or the main computer system glitched
or failed, causing the engines to malfunction.
- After preliminary analysis of both the data and voice
recorders, government agencies have effectively ruled out anything like
hijacking, "suicide" or any conceivable mechanical failure (like
the "thrust reverser" fairy tale they attempted briefly to propound),
although they and the U.S. press have been VERY reluctant to say that intentional,
"terroristic" destruction of the plane is the most likely--indeed
the ONLY--remaining credible possibility. This is in stark contrast with
the press in rest of the world.
- There's a reason WHY this is NOT being discussed by the
government and mass media in the U.S. Because it was "official"
U.S. government- implemented "terrorism" which destroyed the

the extraordinary, outrageous incident of official state-sponsored terrorism
and to bring the truth TO LIGHT as the story develops further.

kind of decoy capacity, were reportedly transporting said parts back to

and the planetary defense apparatus has been activated... successfully,
- If this IS the basic outline of what's really going on,
then it would seem MOST likely that Fl. 990 was terminated by the criminally
insane fascist lunatics at the helm of the monstrous, totalitarian New

diverted through a dimensional portal or wormhole as a means of protecting
it's immeasurably important "cargo" from the inhuman, ANTI-human
psychopaths in the New World Order. If so, we hope all those missing are
in some way or other "okay"...
- As noted, the extremely ancient planetary defense/stargate
apparatus which exists WAY beneath the Giza plateau was missing some crucial
parts pilfered by some "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-type hombres
and turned over to covert factions of the federal government.
