EPA Aircraft Flying Low Over Fort Worth, TX


An aircraft used by the Environmental Protection Agency will fly at a low altitude above Fort Worth Monday morning.

The twin propeller aircraft will fly at a slow speed of about 115 miles per hour over particular areas of the city in a straight line at an altitude between 500 and 2,800 feet to conduct chemical and radiological surveys in the area for about 30 minutes to an hour at an unspecified time, according to the EPA public advisory.

The flyover comes as a response to a request from the State of Texas to assist in environmental monitoring activities during events associated with the upcoming Super Bowl, the release stated.

The data gathered from the surveys will be used by federal, state and local agencies for preparedness activities, the release stated.

The aircraft will be marked with the words "U.S. EPA" underneath its wings for identification, the release stated.


Something just doesn't feel right about this news story. Testing for current Radiation and chemical threats a hole 2 weeks before the Super Bowl? Also the last line makes me suspicious... "US EPA" underneath its wings for ID..." Feels fishy to me. Should we be desensitized now to low flying aircraft circling with EPA on the wings over our cities, sporting events, and homes?

GoM related?? is the water giving off bad mist?? could this be a front for something else??? or could it be they are taking air samples to see how bad it can get from so many people, ie eating chilly.?? one can only guess.

The story seems to suggest they are taking a "base" reading of the air above the stadium where the superbowl will take place in 2 weeks.

I think it is also suggesting that this aircraft will be flying above during the game.

But 2 weeks ahead ? Still seems fishy, and again... the last line of the article went out of the way to reaffirm that it is an EPA aircraft. Has a very, nothing to see here... move along ... kind of feel.

EPA PLANE TO MONITOR SUPER BOWL?

When calibrating the testing equipment which might be used to look for real dangers DURING the Super Bowl, it is crucial to have a precise baseline with which to compare ambient readings. As an example, Houston, TX has a problem with alpha radiation from its water. See, www.khou.com... . Fort Worth doesn't seem to have that problem. So you need to set the detector to ignore normal background radiation for the specific location. And the altitude of the place to be tested matters, since the higher the elevation, the more background cosmic radiation (GCR) you get. Likewise, different locations will have different chemical background signatures. A stadium in the middle of an industrial area will have a different signature than one out in the country.
I think it's reasonable to have good baselines available from which to help eliminate false positives.

Agreed... Would it then be safe to assume there will be one of these aircraft flying low at slow speeds during the Super Bowl? What about airspace conflicts with News Helicopters and the Goodyear Blimp.

Not to mention the noise pollution from the aircraft.

Doesnt any part of that news story feel odd to you?

I doubt they will let the general public know the results. The EPA tested the air in NYC right after 9/11 and told everyone the air is safe. We know now that they completely lied....look at all the sick people and first responders.
They are not to be trusted. They are testing the air in that region because something is going on....

Dallas News: Aircraft from EPA conducting anti-terrorism tests over Tarrant County ahead of Super Bowl


Tarrant County officials hope a federal aircraft flying low over the area today doesn’t find what it’s looking for.

The twin-engine aircraft from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is monitoring for any chemicals and radiological materials that could be a sign of terrorism in the run-up to Super Bowl XLV.

“We’re hoping for zeros all around,” said Melissa Y. Patterson, emergency management coordinator with the Tarrant County administrator’s office.

The state requested the tests, and the data will be compared with conditions during the game on Feb. 6.

Residents in the Fort Worth area may see the small plane flying in straight lines at 500 to 2,800 feet. Tests will take 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

The bottom of the plane is marked “U.S. EPA.”

Yeah. The SuperBowl. As they said above, just flying around on the day of the game wouldn't be as effective as having a baseline reading first and comparing the two data sets.

No doubt the results will be kept secret regardless of the outcome. I totally agree with you. What bugs me about this is it seems to have the purpose of desensitizing the public to low flying slow speed circling aircraft marked EPA... Talk about telling the terrorists what to do... They could paint their own aircraft with US EPA and go fly low with less scrutiny. False Flag anyone?

Nope, nothing odd. The FAA has already issued a TFR banning, with a few restrictions like preapproved air amblance flights and prescreened scheduled airline or all freight flights, from a 30 nm area around the game from the surface to 18,000 feet. See the NOTAM at www.nbaa.org... .

After 3:30 p.m. that day you shouldn't see any news choppers. And RBC monitoring will probably be done from ground based equipment. Given wind speed and direction changes with changing altitudes, it is really hard to pinpoint a source from the air. For instance, the surface wind right now in Arlington, TX is from 080 degrees at 8 mph. At 3000 high, it is from 050 degrees at 16mph.

Here's something from November that someone posted as a predictive of potential false flags. While the article and map specify Houston, it is very interesting that Arlington, TX also lies along that black line. There may be something to these Super Bowl false flag predictions.

Actually, looking at a better map, Arlington, TX is about 3 degrees off that black line, but it still fits the pattern.
