Scrolling through my facebook page today and ran into this story shared by a friend, so I thought I would share it here.




""THIS IS SCARY!!Cancelled Flight- please read!!Please read entire story, we should be very, very scared about this! And to think that Fox News was the only channel that reported this. They may be "politically incorrect", but at least they had the "nerve" to report it. In my opinion, the Muslims are all getting very brave now. Read Tedd Petruna's story below. Can you imagine, our own news media now are so politically correct that they are afraid to report that these were all Muslims? Unbelievable.

Thank God for people like Tedd Petruna. [Tedd Petruna is a diver at the NBL (Neutral Buoyancy Lab) facility at NASA Houston . Tedd happened to be on the AirTran Flight 297, from Atlanta to Houston .]Here's his report :"One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb about where an Air Tran flight was canceled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before take- off.. The story was only on Fox News. That was NOT what really happened.I was seated in 1st class coming home.

Eleven Muslim men got on the plane in full Muslim attire. Two of them sat in 1st class and the rest seated themselves throughout the plane, in coach class, all the way to the back. As the plane taxied out to the runway, the stewardesses gave the safety spiel that we are all so familiar with.At that time, one of the men in 1st class, got on his cell and called one of his companions back in coach. He proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic very loudly and very, very aggressively. This activity took the 1st stewardess out of action for she repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at that time. He ignored her as if she were not there. The man, who answered the phone back in the coach section, did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. Further back in the plane, at the same time, two younger Muslims, one in the back on the aisle, and one sitting in front of him by the window, began to show footage of a porno video they had taped the night before. They were very loud about it.The 3rd stewardess informed the two men that they were not to have any electronic devices on at this time. One of the men said "shut up infidel dog!"The stewardess attempted to take the camcorder and the Muslim began to scream in her face in Arabic.

At that exact moment, all eleven of the men got up and started to walk throughout the cabin. I guess that because of the noise, the flight crew must have decided that there was something amiss and changed the plane's directions to head back to the terminal.The commotion and noise was reaching a feverish pitch, and at this point I had had enough! I got up and started towards the back of 1st class when I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size, say, "I got your back." Then I grabbed the man, who had been on the cell phone, by the arm and said, "You WILL sit down in your seat or you WILL be thrown from this plane!" As I "led" him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed him back to his seat. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, "You WILL do the same!"He protested loudly, but my adrenaline was flowing now and he was going to go also.

Just as I escorted him forward, the plane stopped, the doors opened and three TSA agents and four police officers entered the cabin. Myself and my new Texas friend were told to cease and desist for they had the situation under control.I was quite happy to oblige, actually. There was still some sort of commotion in the back, but within moments, all eleven Muslim men were escorted off the plane. The TSA agents then had their luggage unloaded. We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happened.Then suddenly, the door opened again and in walked all eleven Muslim men! Stone faced, eyes front and robotic, (the only way I can describe it) and they were reseated. The stewardess from the back had been in tears and when she saw the men, she was having NONE of it! Since I was up front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agents that there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with the Muslim men. The agent told her that they had searched the men and were going through their luggage with a fine tooth comb.

However, nothing had been found and that the men were allowed to proceed on to Houston .The captain and co-captain came out of the cockpit and told the agent, "We and our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. Five minutes later, the cabin door opened again and a whole new crew walked on. Again, this was where I had had enough! I got up and asked the TSA agent,"What the hell is going on?I was told to take my seat. The airlines and TSA were sorry for the delay and we would be home shortly. I said, "I'm getting off this plane". The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. Now I'm really mad! I said, "I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose time is mine, with a family at home, and I am going through that door, or I'm going through that door with you under my arm, but I AM going through that door!"And then I heard a voice behind me say, "So am I!" Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the same thing.

Within two minutes, I was walking off that plane where I was met by more TSA agents, who asked me to write a statement about the incident. I had five hours to kill at this point waiting for the next flight to Houston , so why the hell not give them my statement. Due to the amount of people who got off that flight, it was canceled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6 PM, but I finally got there at 12:30 AM. If you don't believe this, look up the date and then Flight 297 from Atlanta to Houston .If this wasn't a terrorism dry run, I don't know what is. The terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it. I'm telling this to you because I want you to know. The threat IS real. I saw it with my own eyes."Tedd Petruna""


Did anyone else hear about this incident?

This sounds like one of those racist stories the kkk tell their children at camp outs....
Its possible, but hardly believable without the proofs....
And even then it may have been a mistaken situation....or it could have been a dry run......

This is an old story!! www.snopes.com...
It has been called a tall tale, not exactly what happened at all.www.factcheck.org...

It’s true that there was an incident on flight 297 involving a passenger (by some accounts, of Middle Eastern descent) who wouldn’t turn off a cell phone or camera as the plane was taxiing to the runway, according to several reports. This caused the pilot to take the plane back to the gate and delayed the flight by more than two hours. But Petruna’s account — in which he says he engaged in a physical altercation with what he calls "Muslim" passengers, grabbing a man by the arm and telling him, “you WILL go sit down or you Will be thrown from this plane!” — hasn’t been corroborated by other passengers, who have told varying, but much less dramatic, accounts. The evidence suggests that Petruna’s e-mail is a tall tale. One passenger says the situation was "unsettling" but people making themselves out to be heroes "live in a fantasy world and I would challenge whether they were even on the plane." We called a home number listed for Petruna, but it was no longer in service. We have left a message for him at his workplace, NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory, in Houston. We also tried to reach him through a man whose name, e-mail address and cell phone number, along with a message saying he’s a friend of Petruna, appear on many of the chain e-mails. That man’s e-mail address and cell phone are no longer working. Earlier this month, Petruna told KHOU-TV in Houston that he had fabricated some parts of his story, but he insisted, off-camera, that he was on board during the incident.

Petruna has since admitted that his tale of the pornographic video isn’t true, telling KHOU-TV in Houston that he also made up his description of the men being dressed "in full [Muslim] attire." He claims that he and another passenger grabbed two of the men and told them to take their seats. Petruna also told KHOU-TV off-camera: "Due to personal and financial reasons, I can’t speak out about this."

www.factcheck.org...


Yes, I have heard of it. To me, the real question is why did this NASA employee, Petruna, make this all up?

I have a feeling that actually denying ignorance these days is more painful than a lot of folks can handle.

Petruna made it up. Why? AirTran Airways say they can prove that Petruna arrived at the airport 26 minutes after the plane in question left the gate.

Weird.

No way, but you know, fox did do a report on this. With the way the MSM is reporting the news, it's getting harder to pick out those giants.


That's why I bring stuff like this to ATS, eventually it will get picked apart. Although sometimes one still has to decide for themselves what is the truth, even in here.
