An interesting idea - the jab

| 1 Comment


There was a fatal airplane accident earlier this month where a skilled private pilot crashed into several Arizona houses.
What if... From American Thinker:

What happened to the pilot?
I watched the video, horrified, knowing the end of the story, yet fascinated as it unfolded.  The small plane's camera focused out the windshield, as the pilot, Dr. Sugata Das, routinely communicated with the tower.  A 64-year-old cardiologist, Das commuted between San Diego and Yuma, having piloted the flight over a hundred times.  Everything was fine last Monday.  Then, suddenly, the plane spiraled down near the Santee, California high school, out of control.  The video ended before the crash, but we know that the pilot and a UPS truck driver were killed, and the plane destroyed several houses.  Two people pulled from a burning house survived with injuries.

The author details a friend who died unexpectedly from a pulmonary embolism. They continue:

Given my friend's experience, I've worried, frankly, that flying with a vaccinated pilot could be dangerous.  I guess my worry is somewhat mitigated by the fact that there are always two people in the cockpit.  The co-pilot takes over if there's an emergency.

The CDC publishes a handy reference guide to blood clots and air travel.  Studies have been done, as well, of clotting after vaccination, including this study that determined that severe clots could occur with some of the vaccines, and this CDC study of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) following COVID vaccination.  In both cases, J&J is cited as the causative vaccine here in the U.S.

Curious - we will get to know Dr. Das' vaccination status?  That could well be the cause of the crash.

Thanks to reader GJ, we find that it was a classic case of pilot confusion - trusting what his perceptions were telling him instead of what the instrument panel was telling him.  He was in a cloud bank and thought he was climbing.

Excellent video from Juan Browne at Blancolirio - solid step-by-step analysis of the accident.
