this is the thing that bugs me about ats the "it been discussed already "attitude,
well maybe just maybe i like real time discussion as apposed to just reading
You are my hero of the day.
To the op. I never heard of this and it is way interesting. I would of randomly stumbled across this otherwise. Maybe.
Wow - that's got to be about the lowest I've ever seen the bar set for hero worship. You have my vote for saddest post of the day.
And if people weren't so lazy, there wouldn't be multiple posts about the same thing crowding up this website (and yes I realize my hypocricy by even posting in this thread). I would bet that if you could be bothered to research those other threads you may find some answers. But that would require effort. If you want your "real time discussion", just bump one of the other threads.

I think he is full of s***... the story seems rehearsed
El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, commonly known as El Gran Combo, is a Puerto Rican Salsa music orchestra. It is Puerto Rico's most successful musical group, and one of the most popular salsa orchestras across Latin America.
On February 15, 1970, the members of El Gran Combo shared a near death experience. They were returning to Puerto Rico from Curaçao, and had to stop at Las Américas International Airport in Santo Domingo. One of the band's members had a bad premonition about the flight they were about to embark on, and the orchestra decided not to take that flight, which would turn out to be the Dominicana Airlines DC-9 that crashed off the Caribbean coast.

I'm sorry, but, whatever you're rambling on about, I've never been to San Diego. LA and San Fran a number of times on business, but never SD. I'm not even all that fond of California at all.
In regards to this being a hoax, I'm pretty certain that it being a hoax ONCE counts as being a hoax forever.
Burden of proof in my direction to go dig up people that could very well be dead by now as well as anything they've lost and forgotten or thrown away over the decades, um, yeah.
I'm pretty certain in sourcing claims that this was already found a hoax that this case is still indeed a hoax.

He is a lie. His eyebrows jumped too much, he moved his hands to much, and he looked left to much, cold-blooded habitual liar. ‘Flying saucers’

The list continues, try search engine.
some people come here and dont want to rifle through the search engine forever, which is not always reliable to begin with, so c'mon: thanks for your concern though.edit on 17/4/12 by gunshooter because: its been almost a couple years since someone made a thread on it anyway, and we have a lot of new blood here on ATS that probably have never heard of this or have seen the other threads, it would be good to hear their comments too.edit on 17/4/12 by gunshooter because: (no reason given)
Ah, yes, more of that self entitled attitude brought on by the social phenomenon of Convenience that's effecting so many these days.
"I'm too lazy to do any actual real work in finding the answers I seek, so, I'm going to make other people bring the information to me because I deserve to have everything I want handed to me without actually working for it."
"Doing a search, much less any research is just soooo hard. Can't someone else type in something on google, or some other search engine thingey for me?"
"I need attention because my 5000 friends on Facebook and Myspace are boring, so, I'm going to go ask a question about something that 483 other people have already asked in the past on ATS and not bother to see what their responses were on the other threads because I'm so much more important than everyone else and I need direct attention, because I really am more important than everyone else."
These, of course, are extreme parodies of this growing self entitlement attitude brought on by a social conditioning of Convenience in the media and 1st world society.
Still, the examples should illustrate this culture of convenience and self entitlement that's becoming more and more pervasive.

They reply to the old threads and then said old threads then pop up on the current discussions page.
Other people then read over the old topic, and either add their own input, or, if the topic has already been done to death and is indeed dead, then, not.
It's an attitude of entitlement that your opinion, though the same as someone else that has already made a statement on the case in previous threads, is more important than the observation or opinion made by said previous posters.
or, do you just want attention, engagement, and validation for or against whatever opinion you might have?
Is social affirmation and confirmation of your precious opinion that important that it's necessary to start a new thread on something already discussed so the same things can be said just by different people?
Me thinks the bigger concern should be the effect of the mind control indoctrination and programming that's influencing people such to the point of laziness where this self entitled validation is more important than doing actual research, looking over all the points discussed previously on a topic and then, only then contributing to the conversation these 'new' ideas and opinions that are so utterly important.
... or, you can be a victim of the mind control campaign of convenience in effect that's programming people through social media to feel this need for validation, personal engagement, and entitlement such that they're too lazy and too spoiled to actually work for an answer to their questions, and such that they demand personal attention and gratification.
