In order to keep you up to date with the progress of events I decided to send Part 1 to many politicians and other interested parties. I obviously have not included Part 1 as an attachment in this report as you already know of its contents.

Hello all

 

I am aware of the latest report given out today regarding other possible causes for the crash of Chinook ZD576 at the Mull of Kintyre ie FADEC or whatever.

 

It is also of concern to me that I have made it known that I was about to release the above article today regarding that of possible sabotage.

 

From my perspective having worked the helicopter scene for some years I still have some grave concerns about the possible outcome.

 

I had passed on my concerns to Lord Phillip having received the contact details from Capt Ralph Kohn (as per the article above) and in this letter I state that either way it certainly was not crew error.

 

Having painfully followed this through up to the current time I still insist that the person who gave me the sabotage story be interviewed by the police owing to the fact that her previous background gave her Intel access at the highest level in both the DTI and also to No10 and in that context makes her a reliable witness.

 

In the event that this was not the case then either way the good work carried out by Ralph Kohn and the team shows clearly a cover-up was embarked upon by the MoD and that the original concerns by Capt Kohn and team were perfectly valid.

 

I therefore insist that Ms Tara Andrea Davison (or possibly Ms Tara Andrea Biggs-Davison) be called upon to give evidence under oath and recorded to put the records straight.

 

Once this has been put to bed, then we can move forward into a correct inquiry. However, it is still a remarkable coincidence that this story has broken on the same day of my planned article release…….one would assume that in order to hide a possible inside job (Sabotage) it is better to accept the lesser charge of mechanical failure and pass the blame onto the MoD and Boeing (if Ms Davison was correct),

 

Finally what is also deeply suspicious is the fact that never would you allow 25 of the most experienced terrorism experts from the Police – Army – MI5 travel on the same aircraft…..having myself worked in high level security this is a clear no no in both the military and civil aviation…….the same also applies in the corporate sector.

 

It is for this reason that I send you all a copy of my article in the hope that this investigations also takes into account possible sabotage……..I was shocked that this aspect was never taken into account, despite the level of VIP that were on this tragic flight.

 

My final comment was also who gave the Chief Constable of Strathclyde the authority to make the announcement immediately after the crash that there was nothing suspicious about this crash……..this was against normal protocol as it is up to the investigation team/board (attending to crash scene) to decide the cause of the crash……..I believe that some very serious flaws exist in this past and current inquiry and also the fact that both Gordon Bowden and myself were not allowed to give a sworn statement to the police under oath??

 

Yours Sincerely

To

Mr Alex Passa

The Mull of Kintyre Review

1 Melville Crescent

Edinburgh

EH3 7HW                                                         Wednesday the 13th of April 2011

 

  

Dear Mr Passa

 

For the attention of the Mull of Kintyre Review Board:

 

 The Rt Hon Lord Philip, Rt Hon Malcolm Bruce MP, the Rt Hon the Lord Forsyth of Drumlean and the Rt Hon the Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke.

 

To the Rt Hon members of the Mull of Kintyre Review Board

 

Please find attached a record/press release of my own findings regarding the loss of RAF Chinook ZD576, its crew and passenger on the 2nd of June 1994 on the headland of the Mull of Kintyre Scotland.

 

Whatever the outcome of your own investigations I would insist you arrange for Ms Tara Andrea Davison (Nee Tara Andrea Biggs-Davison) to be interviewed under oath and recorded at the earliest opportunity and that this action be made public in your report.

 

I would also ask you to be most critical of the RAF – MoD procedures in allowing all of these highly qualified terrorism experts to travel on the same aircraft, which is in gross violation of normal aviation protocol.

 

I would ask you also to be critical of Leslie Sharp, The Chief Constable of Strathclyde who made the following statement immediately after the crash:

“I make it clear that there is no reason whatsoever to suspect that we are dealing with anything other than a terrible tragic accident.”

 

Why would a person so senior make such a statement immediately after the crash and who gave him the authority to make this statement?  The circumstances and analysis of such a crash remains the duty of the investigation team and certainly not the Chief Constable of Police who has absolutely no aviation experience whatsoever!

 

I would also ask that consideration be given to the fact that many fishing boats were around the location at the time (as per comments made by Mr. Holbrook). He stated that he had to manoeuvre his boat around many other fishing boats…..so how come only one offshore witness was interviewed. They were in a much better position to observe the approaching helicopter.

 

The terminology and style used by the investigation team when questioning Mr. Holbrook was bordering on manipulation of the weather conditions at the time. Having spent many many years in such an environment and such coastal weather patterns I believe the weather to be acceptable for such a flight.

 

Finally I am deeply concerned at the latest press release by the BBC which just so happened to coincide with this release and stated:

 

Newly discovered Ministry of Defence documents have cast further doubt on the cause of the Chinook helicopter crash on the Mull of Kintyre in 1994.The papers, obtained by the BBC, suggest there were official concerns over the airworthiness of the RAF’s fleet of Chinooks two years earlier. It is understood they were never shown to the officer in charge of signing off the aircraft’s airworthiness.”

 

There is nothing new about the contents of this press release regarding the status of the Chinook airworthiness two year hence. The track record in regard to the failures of the FADEC system were well known, even leading right up to this crash.

 

The concerns were very well know by many experienced aircrews and more importantly by the RAF, Authorities and that of Boscombe Down, the very establishment that test aircraft, especially with this type of Chinook (HC) which had a long history of many such serious problems immediately prior to the above crash.

 

One would hope that this coincidental release is not a ploy by the powers that be to distract away from the possibility of it being an inside job i.e. the interference of and aircraft/sabotage?

 

Having some connection to Intel myself it would be in the governments best interest to now accept a lesser charge of FADEC failure rather than be accused of an internally arranged sabotage. I believe the term used now days is that of a “False Flag Incident.”

 

I am sure that without losing your integrity you will therefore insist that Ms Tara Andrea Davison be interviewed without further delay and the above points be addressed.

 

Please be kind enough to acknowledge receipt of this email at your earliest convenience.

 

Thanking you in anticipation

 

Your Sincerely

The whole purpose of boring you all with these communications is to make sure it is recorded in the public domain as to who received what and when……I call this being transparent.

I have already had some feedback that this is having a ripple effect within the powers that be…….and so it should!!

Footnote to this article:

You will note that this is referred too as a review rather than a fresh inquiry and in that context I am sure we can all determine the final outcome to some degree.

There was a perfectly good civil investigation team who really did start to open a can of worm, but even they had not focused on the possibility that this Chinook may have been tampered with or sabotaged and that I find of deep concern given the passengers involved and the fact they were all travelling together, However my aim is not to be critical of them but rather that of the RAF and the MoD in their duty of care towards their airman and these passengers.

Frequently the Ministers themselves are privy to such information and also the shortfalls and willing send their forces on special missions or combat knowing the possible resultant mishaps. Geoff Hoon is one such Minister who frequently covered his tracks, however in this particular case I believe the Secretary for Defence at the time was Malcolm Rifkind (now Sir Malcom Rifkind) under PM John Major.

His position at the moment in the current government is that of Chair of the The Intelligence and Security Committee under PM David Cameron (how very convenient). The President of the Board of Trade at the time of the crash was Michael Heseltine (now Lord Heleltine).

It goes without saying that these two astute gentlemen have much information hidden within the corridors of Westminster, that may never be revealed, but with Sir Michael at the helm of Intelligence and Security what chance do we have of having an open and transparent review?
