suspect the cover story is set in stone on the bridge.
Please tell me that you didn't fall for the video (ATC Italy) that Tanker Enemy (Rosario Marciano) and his team made? It is a complete insult to
Tanker Enemy is making his money based on complete fabrication. People get sucked in by this nonsense and discover the likes of Tanker Enemy and all
his links to other Chemtrail scammers. It is a never ending cycle in which their 'evidence' is spread and they laugh all the way to the bank. Marciano
now has a click to donate button on his website along with selling his merchandise.
What he claims as 'evidence' is simply fraudulent. He has nothing else to offer but this type of drivel. Take for example the following.
His video title.
'Unidentified airplane with identifying marks removed'
Take a look at the comments on that video. Someone asks "What model/type of plane is it???"
Tanker Enemy responds that it is an A-330.
'A-330' as in Airbus 330.
The rest of the comments are simply staggering and shows the ignorance that is out there. That ignorance is only compounded by the fact that he
removes and blocks any comment that busts his version of the video.
He claims to be an expert in his field, yet he can't even identify that aircraft he or his team film.
The aircraft is actually a Boeing 767 and it is marked. Tanker enemy hasn't a clue on how US aircraft are registered or where they display markings.
All this information is out there so why does he still continue to peddle this utter ignorance?
High resolution image of the aircraft in the video.
In its previous life the aircraft was operated by a foreign airline and thus carried underwing registration.
The regulations covering US civil registered aircraft.
Until December 31, 1960, the required location for display of nationality and identification marks for fixed- wing aircraft was the wing
surfaces, and the vertical surface of either the tail or fuselage. Effective January 1, 1960, all fixed-wing aircraft were required to display
indentification marks on the vertical surfaces or either the tail or fuselage. Wing surface markings were no longer required.
The Boeing 767 in the two videos carries the registration N606TW and was leased to the Italian Air Force to train up its air-refuelling pilots. He
also has no clue as to where US civil aircraft carry their identification registrations.
This was widely known in the aviation enthusiast community and people could even get onto the flight deck to take photographs at the Italian airbase.
Here is N606TW captured in the US before being sent to Italy.
