I am not the one to start senseless speculation. Having spent 20 years in the military , having been involved in certain activities on American soil
that to this day the general public has no knowledge of I have become very adapt at putting random events together. Sort of picking up scattered
pieces to a puzzle to assemble enough to see a a pattern. Or to make one go Hmmm?
Scott Kalitta was a drag race car driver recently killed in what they called a "freak" accident. He had returned to racing many years after retiring
from a successful and safe career.
He was the son of Comrad,"Connie" Kalitta who also raced and owned the team.His cousin Doug Kalitta is also a driver for the team.
Here is where it gets,well interesting.
Conrad Kalitta aslo is the owner of Kalitta Airlines. A commercial cargo carrier. Here is the wiki link.en.wikipedia.org...
"In 1967 Conrad "Connie" Kalitta began a business carrying car parts using a twin engine Cessna 310 that he piloted himself. Over the years this
simple start blossomed into a major airline - American International Airways. AIA began flying in 1984 using Boeing 747, Lockheed L-1011, Douglas
DC-8, Twin Beech and Learjet aircraft, for air freight, air ambulance and charter passenger operations. In 1990 and 1991 AIA flew 600 missions in
support of Desert Shield/Desert Storm. They ultimately became one of the world’s 25 largest airlines."
Start with this interesting tidbit.
During the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict Kalitta Air made weapon resupply flights from the US to Israel, via Prestwick Airport in Scotland for
refuelling, without authority from the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority. Scotland's Crown Office considered, but eventually decided against,
prosecuting Kalitta Air for two July 2006 flights carrying laser-guided bombs.
Then, On May 25, 2008, a Kalitta Air Boeing 747 from the company's fleet overran runway 20 at Brussels Airport. The plane broke in two and came to a
complete stop in a field bordering the runway. There were four crew members and one passenger onboard and no injuries have been reported. The aircraft
was loaded with 76 tons of goods, half of it being diplomatic mail, and was supposed to take off to Bahrain.
Then, On June 21, 2008, Scott Kalitta was fatally injured during the final round of qualifying for the Lucas Oil NHRA SuperNationals at Old Bridge
Township Raceway Park.
"It has been determined that a tragic series of events took place that fateful afternoon. An engine explosion near the end of the run resulted in
separating most of the car's body from the chassis. The car's parachutes did not blossom, and the vehicle continued down the right side of the shut
down area at a high rate of speed. It went off the top end of the track, up into the right catch net pole, and hit the television camera boom beyond
the end of the sand trap before coming to a rest."
And,on July 7, 2008, a Kalitta Air Boeing 747 crashed shortly after departing from El Dorado International Airport in Bogotá Colombia at 3:55 am. The
plane was en route to Miami, Florida, with a shipment of flowers. After reporting a fire in one of the engines, the plane attempted the return to the
airport but crashed near the village of Madrid, Colombia. One of the plane's engines hit a farm house, killing an adult and two children who lived
there. The crew of eight survived.[
Finally,Kalitta Charters is an American charter airline based in Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA. It operates passenger, air ambulance, and cargo charter
services. Its main base is Willow Run Airport, Ypsilanti, with one satellite base located in Morristown, Tennessee. The company is owned and run by
Doug Kalitta. Kalitta Charters is now the sole company that has a contract with the government to fly the remains of soldiers to their final resting
American International Airways? Sounds as if somebody resurrected Air America a former United States civilian airline operated by the Central
Intelligence Agency during the Vietnam War.
Mr. Connie Kallitta and the family businesses seem to have recently run into a streak of "bad luck".
If Scott Kalitta's death was just a racing accident,why is the New Jersey State police investigating it?
And of course this doesn't pertain to the subject but, Mr.Connie Kilatta is a registered Republican and a supporter of both Bushs and John McCain.Or
