Royal Navy whistleblower William McNeilly leaked details about a number of serious test fire issues aboard Britain’s Trident nuclear submarine
fleet a whole year before the June 2016 misfire that sent a missile careening towards the US.
All im saying is, that 2010 incident still looks like a missile launch to me.
The compensation tests weren't actual firings, they were simulated. And the other test was just to test the doors. Submarines frequently come back
with problems that need fixing. I've known many people that served on subs and some of the stories they told about events both during their cruise and
what the boat was like when it got back were scary.
The US has successfully fired the same missile 157 times since the Trident II was developed. There were a few failures, but that's normal for any
Think about it? If it was a missile launch off California then where are all the reports from airliners and passengers?
Do you not think that pilots would have observed this claimed huge great vertical plume and reported it? That is why perspective comes into play here.
Any pilot viewing that trail (contrail) would have seen it as horizontal. No pilot has reported seeing a vertical plume. It was misinterpreting
perspective that made many cry missile!
Nothing unusual on radar, nothing reported by pilots or ground observers. Why didn't the LAX Air Traffic Controllers in the tower report anything
unusual? No reports from mariners and no reports from the Islanders off the coast.
