I decided to take my folks to Niagara Falls yesterday as they are holidaying here. Anyway, we took the scenic route via Fort Erie, and got to the
falls at just after 3pm. Whilst on the people mover (bus) going from the parking lot to the falls, the bus driver out of the blue asks us if we saw
the 2 jets earlier on.
She said this occurred around 1pm. Obviously we hadn't as we were at Lake Erie at the time, but I asked her for more details to see if she could fill
me in. All she could tell me is that an aircraft was seen coming over the falls, and then was intercepted by two fighter jets, and then escorted west
back into Canadian territory.
She couldn't tell me any more. I wanted to start asking people at the Falls, but unfortunately I was with my folks, so I just didn't have the
The bus driver couldn't tell me if she had seen any markings / Identification on the tail of the aircraft, and if the fighter jets were Canadian or
American. She did tell me that everyone was focused on it at the time, and people were thinking here comes 911 again, but now at Niagara.
As usual, there were PLENTY of people at the falls in summer, and almost EVERYONE has a camera with them. There must be photos of this that exist, and
I'm thinking lots of them too. Very good chance that video footage exists as well.
My question is this: Why is there nothing about this at all in the MSM?!
I've been watching Global TV, CBC, CTV, etc and scouring the net, and NOTHING except this from a guy on Twitter:
That's it! That's all I got! A complete blackout of this thing. For those who have ever been to Niagara Falls, you know how busy that place is, and
know for sure that there is definitely photos / recordings of this.
Question is, "Why hasn't this been reported somewhere....anywhere?!"
If anyone can help me find anymore on this, please do. It may be nothing..., but from what the bus driver told me (she's been working there since
1971), this was something serious and not on the 'schedule' as such!
