My reply from the other thread about this.
First, those aren't KC-135s or KC-10s. It's hard to tell what they are, but they aren't even the same size. The first one appears to be some kind of
large widebody. The second one is a smaller narrowbody four engine type. They aren't the same kind of plane.
Second, if those had been near misses, the FedEx pilot wouldn't have said "FedEx with a request." A request is made when you want to climb or descend
to get out of weather, or turbulence, not when you have a near miss. If it had been a near miss, he would have said they just had several aircraft in
a near miss situation. Also, even if the first plane was within 2,000 feet, it wasn't a near miss. The Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums require
maintaining 1,000 feet vertical separation between flight level 290 and flight level 410 (29,000 to 41,000 feet). FedEx was asking to descend to
34,000 so he was flying under RVSM rules.
Third, both KC-135s, and FedEx flights are equipped with TCAS, which would have warned of a collision if there was any danger of it happening.
All that was just in the first minute of the video. His conclusions are a joke, and totally biased towards chemtrails, just going from the comments
Then there's his list of chemicals that they're supposedly spraying. With the exception of some of the more bizarre, like dessicated human red blood
cells (which are supposed to do what exactly), those are all found released from ground sources. And some of them are just like WTF? I mean really,
"sub micron particles"? Particles of what? The only thing he got right in the list of chemicals is jet fuel emissions.
At the 1:07 mark, that's not a tanker either. Not sure what it is, since it's blurry, but it's not a KC-135. And the bit about "altitudes cleared for
commercial flights" is a joke. Military aircraft fly at the same altitude as commercial flights. I'm really curious how he knows these are all
At the 3:09, that looks like a 777 in the LR family, probably a 300LR from the range. Definitely not a KC-135. The blue tail tells us it's definitely
not a tanker or a military plane. The one at 4:14 looks like a 767, which the military doesn't currently fly, so definitely not a tanker. So far I
have yet to see a single tanker. This one looks like a 747 going over.
Wow. That video was horrible. He wasn't even close on his conclusions, and couldn't get a single type identification right, as well as the whole
"cleared for commercial aircraft" bit.
