Dangerous Chemical Tricresyl Phosphate Aboard Aircraft

In another example of jet engines sickening people, as I've been saying they are using the engines to create chemtrails, people are getting sick in the cabin for bleedoff air being used in the cabin, and cockpit.

I wonder.. is the recent spate of odd behavior, sudden death aboard aircraft, and unexplained accidents possibly somewhat due to this released information?

Bleed air can get contaminated from engine oils and fluids when seals leak or when maintenance crews overfill fluid reservoirs. One contaminant that has raised concerns among airline unions and some scientists is tricresyl phosphate, an antiwear additive found in the engine oil of commercial jet liners that has been linked to neurological damage when ingested.

Tricresyl phosphate is an organophosphate!

Organophosphate (OP) compounds are a diverse group of chemicals used in both domestic and industrial settings. Examples of organophosphates include: insecticides (malathion, parathion, diazinon, fenthion, dichlorvos, chlorpyrifos, ethion), nerve gases (soman, sarin, tabun, VX), ophthalmic agents (echothiophate, isoflurophate), and antihelmintics (trichlorfon). Herbicides (tribufos [DEF], merphos) are tricresyl phosphate–containing industrial chemicals.

Just found some more info on this. Seems the problem is more widespread than thought.

Abstract: A survey of cockpit air contamination by organophosphates and amines in the Hawk, F-111 and Hercules C-130 aircraft was undertaken. The air contamination occurred via the engine bleed air supply. The source of tricresyl phosphates, pheny-alpha-naphthylamine and diotyldiphenylamine was jet engine oil while hydraulic fluids are suspected of contributing to the presence of trialkyl phosphates. The concentrations of all contaminants measured were generally very low. Tricresyl phosphate concentrations were below 4 mug/m3 with two exceptions

Wonder why just these three AC?

Atmospheric tricresyl phosphate (TCP) isomers in Kurose river basin were determined. The concentrations of o-TCP and m-TCP were 0.13 and 0.09 ng/m3, respectively, while p-TCP was scarcely detected.

Organophosphates in aircraft cabin and cockpit air—method development and measurements of contaminants

In a recent study, published in the Journal of Environmental Monitoring, the researchers detected ten times elevated levels of the organophosphate nervetoxic TCP in the cabin and cockpit in a Norwegian airliner.
