Did anyone hear the radio interview that Jeff Rense and Peter Davenport did with a United aircraft taxi mechanic? If memory serves me right, this
witness said that he saw the object while taking an aircraft to the hangar. It was still there when he was on his way back to the terminal close to 20
min. later. So depending on when people first saw it, the time that elapsed could have been anywhere from 2 to 20 min. He also said that when it took
off it shot up through the cloud cover and left a hole that you could see through for several minutes until it filled in again. I don't remember if
it was straight up or otherwise. He was a very believable witness and I caught no inconsistencies at all while listening to him.
I have searched on rense.com for that interview to listen again but I cant seem to find it on a site search. rense.com is what led me to this website
and is a great website if any of you haven't done so you should check it out.
On the work front, I have been asking everyone from managers, supervisors, to ramp workers if they know of anyone who was working that day that saw
something and I am still being met with alot of " No, I don't know anyone", or someone makes a joke. In all fairness I work a different shift than
the one that the incident happened on, but I didn't think it would be this hard to find somebody, anybody to tell me what they saw. I did speak to a
couple of afternoon people too. I guess the company can get away with scaring people to silence.
On a side note, I have a co-worker who spoke to the T.V media about the mood at united when we were going through our bankruptcy nightmare, and he let
upper management have it right on tv. He was not very flattering to say the least. He did this with pilots, flight attendants, mechanics all passing
on the reporters offer to speak out their opinion. When he spoke all of their jaws dropped. They couldn't believe he was talking to the media.
Anyway, the piece airs and he is immediately called into the office for an investigation. The first thing they make you do is write a statement about
what you said, did, or witnessed. So all he writes on his statement is " THE FIRST AMENDMENT" " FREEDOM OF SPEECH", etc. all over the paper. When
the supervisor reads it he had to call World Headquarters to presumably speak with someone from the legal dept. After going back and forth with him
just repeating what he wrote on the paper and them asking "What do you mean by what you wrote", and all he answered with was the same thing,
"FREEDOM OF SPEECH" and "FIRST AMENDMENT", they finally told him just to go back to work and never do it again.
Question for any lawyers out there, can a company rule supercede a right granted to you by the Constitution of the U.S and the Bill of Rights. ?
My friend expressed his opinion to the media. Aren't RamagentX and his fellow witnesses just doing the same?
They are not revealing company secrets,nor endangering Homeland Security. How can they breach a rule, if the company and the FAAare saying the object
does not exist?
I won't give up searching for someone who saw something. I know a couple of pilots. Maybe I will ask them if and when I see them.
