A large facility like an airport, Medical center, shopping mall, have More than one high voltage power feed, usually a loop feed system from more than one substation. So that if a part of the system fails it can be switched out by rerouting power around the fault. Example:, An auto hits a power pole. Open switches on both sides of the accident and close the nearest bypass to feed the circuit from both ends.

The emergence lighting is usually feed from batteries or more than one generator system depending on the use of the facility.

Typically only 1 light fixture in 10 is on the generator and 1 in 3 of the elevators. UPS systems are reserved for computer systems and some life safety equipment or emergence life support.


ATL airport has at least 2 or more high voltage feeds. To route them in the same enclosure would be careless and very unusual.
I don't this we are being told the whole story.

Does anyone know if Atlanta Center Air Traffic Control went down, or even where it's located?

Probably more like an Axe EMP...

They are a lot easier to get a hold of and are just as effective. A wooden handled axe could play hell on a power structure...Especially if you cut the big cable..




And the backup power and emergency lighting?


That part is interesting. These facilities have UPS systems that rival anyone's. The fact that it did not kick over is something more sinister as even the most advanced setups at the end of the day simply transition from one to the other when the primary fails.

The fact that there was zero power/no transition instantly to the new source of power...this should have the eyebrows raised for everyone.


Meh, even with UPS's an outage can occur.

I used to work at a REALLY large manufacturing facility in the city. It was so big it had it's own train yard. Anyways, the electric company used to have to shut us off once every few years to test their systems and I remember on one occasion even our generators and UPS's for the site had to be powered off because of the way they tied into the grid. These were extremely large, turbine-powered generators which became completely useless because of this one scenario.

It's like people WANT everything to be terrorism these days.

A "source", yeah that's legit.

11 hours without power? Woah the terror!

First I'm hearing of this. I wonder you're using a biased right wing "news" source?



Investigative journalist and former Project Veritas operative Laura Loomer shared a message from one of her sources, who cited an airport employee to state that it was a “suspected terrorist attack,” though that theory was not definitively confirmed.


Yup.



Project Veritas operative Laura Loomer


Not only biased but apart of a propaganda machine to make conservatives feel better.

here is an update www.dailymail.co.uk...

they are saying a gear switch failed (which is really rare) that caused the fire and caused the outage.....they don't know or are not commenting on what CAUSED this rare event..oh and a fire broke out next to the equipment for the backup system

I don't think it is that outlandish to think of terrorism was behind it......it is a possibility since gear switch fail is really rare...we wonder whast caused it....

they are also saying the main power and the backup power were both wired through the same spot in the tunnel the fire happened.

I can never quite trust your sources, O.P. Let's assume that it was a terrorist attack, well that is a strange one, as it didn't hurt anybody. Maybe the terrorist was trying to test out new methods.

I don't think they needed an EMP, wasn't the cause an actual fire at one of the underground electrical centers?

Well at this point, you can say it was anything, mechanical failure, disgruntle employee, or someone radicalized by ISIS via their YouTube channel. My point is, the only one calling it terrorism is a right wing blog whose source is completely deplorable and full of lies and manipulation.

There was a plane that took off during the blackout which has caused more speculation. Some interesting connections have been made.

Flight Log Link

The plane in question is the 4X-ICB which is owned by CAL Cargo Airlines which owns another company called LACHS. They (LACHS) are known for having the ability to load and unload without the presence of a customs agent.

Link to detective work

Now, it may be that a power outage accident occurred which shut down one of the busiest airports in the world for about 12 hours. Or, maybe something else went down. We won't ever know because whatever the MSM says is the truth we are expected to accept. Either way, there are some interesting details and at the least the plane that left is suspicious.

Props to VOTL on twatter.

The plane in question 4X-ICB, is a cargo plane that arrived in Atlanta from Mexico City at 1:00 PM, just literal minutes before the alleged power problems began to make the airport go dark. The plane would then go on to leave for its next destination at 6:27 PM, right in the middle of the blackout that ran from about one to midnight. With the official record indicating that the first flight post blackout was not allowed to take off from the airport until 12:56 AM the next day, how then how do we account for our mystery flight?


Someone was moving something that was a secret. Obv Isreal were involved.

To move secret cargo use the busiest airport and a power failure versus a smaller one. Also do it with a plane turned around from a flight from Mexico.

That idea of the downed nuclear detectors fits into the same doing it the hard way theme.

Very interesting and plausible theory.



Although we will never know the truth

Given the info on the flight, the destination is left out. Wonder why. Maybe not going to Israel?

Looks like it does get to Tel Aviv in a roundabout way.

Sounds like STUXNET... but for what did they need the airport clear and offline for a period of time for?

You leave a few key words out of the subject and those words are "may have been" which read substantially different then the definitive statement you make .

Knowing that you seem to jump to a conspiracy first on everything I guess that makes sense but igfwe are still trying to deny ignorance on this site seems like you should clarify that a bit.
