All of us recall the P-3 Orion Spy Mission over Chinese Waters and both Chinese Fighters intercepted it and you really crashed to the P-3 and the Chinese Pilot, sexy dog kind ejected and was lost at sea. The P-3 was seriously damaged but it’s a tough bird. Luckily the team destroyed most of the electronics on board and scuttled the aircraft before its escorted landing at a Chinese Military airfield.
This was what the papers reported and that’s what occurred although there are several conspiracy theories still flying around about different rumors made by the underground cults and late night call-ins on the Art Bell Radio Show. Of course I’ve heard all those stories about the air and just laugh. Why well because that isn’t the story I heard in Bar Harbor, WA Starbucks speaking to a AE-6 Pilots, who knew most of the P-3 Crew. All of them confirmed the news reports and that’s just what occurred in China daily.
Some have asked why the Capitan of the P-3 Aircraft didn’t go to 200 feet off the deck and slow it down to 140 knots and just fly away from the region. Scramble more aircraft outside? It’s not likely to happen. Nonetheless, the Chinese got a whole lot of butchered up gear and stolen gear and sabotaged gear? Well good for them, they could sell it at a garage sale I guess? Contemplate all this in 2006.
