I have spent the majority of this week trying to collect the most up-to-date and reliable astrology data for astrologers who may want to study this catastrophic aircraft crash. I will update this list as and when I find more details. I herewith thank also all the Internet contributors on various fora for expressing their views and demonstrating their in-depth knowledge of aviation. Without them, this list would not have been possible. I'll try to make separate posts for photographs, charts and links with the thanks owed to authors of various articles and photographs in the next few days. Please feel free to make astrology comments or questions below, far down the post. I've done a lot of research work on this event and I may have on file details that may be of use to your astrological delineations but which I have omitted from this post. Bookmark this page and come back soon.
Please be respectful when using this data, do not use commercially and give prayers that the victims' souls rest in peace. Thank you.
The plane was an Airbus A330-200. Its registration was F-GZCP and serial number 660. It was made in France, in Toulouse-Blagnac, in 2005. Location is: 43°37'48"N 01°21'52"E
- It's maiden flight was in Toulouse-Blagnac on 25 February 2005 (time unknown) with its registration but no livery.
- Since writing this post, I have noted that the Maiden Flight of F-GZCP was photographed at 15h38 (14h38 GMT). Please update your charts accordingly.
- On 4 April 2005 it was delivered in full livery to Air France (delete this, read below... in the Paris Charles-de-Gaulle airport). Location is: 49°00'35"N 02°32'52"E
- It seems its first flight in the hands of Air France took place on 5 April 2005 (time unknown) (delete this, read below... at the Paris Charles-de-Gaulle airport).
- Since writing this post, I have learnt that the time of the flight for that date was 16h00 and the photograph obtained - see next post with all charts - clearly shows that this flight took place at Toulouse-Blagnac, not at the Paris Charles-de-Gaulle airport, as I had wrongly assumed. Please update your charts accordingly.
- Its first commercial flight was on 18 April 2005 (time and destination unknown).
The plane departed from Rio-de-Janeiro (GIG), in Brazil. Coordinates for the airport are:
22°48'32"S 43°14'37"W. The time of leaving the gate was 19h03 local (22h03 GMT) on 31 May 2009 and the plane departed from that gate 3 minutes late. The take-off took place at 19h29 local (22h29).
From the media, it is understood that the flight was uneventful in the first few hours. The last voice contact took place at 01h33 GMT on flight path UN873 INTOL at 01°21'42"S 32°49'56"W (decimal degrees: 1 21.7S 32 49.9W).
At 0148 GMT, 15 minutes after crossing the INTOL waypoint, AF447 dropped off Brazilian radar screens to enter a no-radar-zone where it was to fly until its entry later on the way into Senegalese airspace.
There is speculation that the plane made contact with Air France somehow at 02h00 GMT and mentioned severe turbulence at waypoint ORARO with this position: 02°14'48"N 30°55'24"W (decimal degrees 2 14.8N 30 55.4W). However I was unable to find any other official source than Air France. What I have seen on the Net looks reliable though.
From this point AF447 was due to reach the Senegalese air space at waypoint TASIL at 4°00'18"N 29°59'24"W at 0220 GMT after going through this radar void in this region and huge thunderstorms. It never arrived.
Between 02h10 and 02h14, a series of 24 automated messages were sent by the plane to the operating centers of Air France. Most of these messages are catastrophic in nature, but it is not yet known whether these messages were sent in sequence for events that happened, either during the time of the break-up of the plane (if it broke up) or after the plane had hit the ocean in one or several parts. If the plane did not deviate its horizontal course, the position at the time of the last automated message at 02h14 would have been extrapolated approximately as 3°34′40″N 30°22′28″W, but professionals who worked on the photos of the Brazilian map put this at 03°N, 30°21'W. That is supposing that the airspeed remained the same. However those messages contain indications that the groundspeed was somehow not right, but it is not known if the equipment was so damaged that it would communicate wrong groundspeed, or if it was still functioning ok and transmitting accurate speed - if I have understood correctly. Some speculate that falling straight down from a height of 11km (35,000 feet) takes exactly 4 minutes.
Air France has stated that it will issue a preliminary report by the end of the month of June.
Details that may be pertinent to astrological analysis of the AF447 crash. Consider the following:
- The plane had had accidents in the past, and there has been speculation on whether this could be a factor in weakening some parts of the aircraft.
- There is dispute with professional pilots on some pieces of equipment which measures airspeed called "pitots" and which Air France is now urgently replacing, against Airbus advice, as pilots are now refusing to fly with the old version of this equipment, which had already caused some trouble.
- There are considerations of extraordinary weather circumstances, in particular a rise of hot air inside a cumulonimbus (a CB), which would cause the plane to get stuck in what is called "coffin corner". Hail, icing, rain, lightning, turbulence have been raised as main or co-factors.
- Weather radar malfunction in the radome has been mentioned. Equally the possibility that a small but extraordinary violent storm hid behind otherwise non-frightening images of a normal bad weather, beyond the technical possibility for the radar to show it in time which, purportedly, would explain why the pilots did not divert. It is to be remembered this was night-time, in the middle of clouds and weather disturbances, where pilots could not possibly navigate their plane on sight. The moon was third-quarter and its light would not have penetrated the extremely high and dense clouds.
- There were three pilots, with strong experience, unlikely to want to ride the dragon. Of the twelve crew members, eleven were French and one was Brazilian.
- Of the 216 passengers there were one baby, seven children, 82 women, and 126 men. The plane had a number of noteworthy travellers, including a royal prince, for whom one might want to obtain birth dates data to analyse. The passengers represented a wide cross-section of the population, with doctors, artists, humanitarians, anti-drugs and anti-arms volunteers, researchers, industry captains, a group of 10 employees rewarded by a trip to Brazil for their performance at work, newly weds, one lone child, and a majority of French, Brazilian and German people.
- There have been several reports of other pilots/planes sighting a white falling light of 6 seconds' duration in the night sky about the time it happened. None of these sightings can be confirmed, yet, as having been AF447.
- At the moment, it seems, on the Brazilian photographs, that not many pieces of the the plane have been found, and they do not look scattered in a wide area - but then this will be written in the future report. According to this, some speculate that the plane entered the ocean whole or at most in a few large pieces and did not disintegrate in millions pieces in the air.
- The black boxes will be incredibly difficult to find as the ocean is several miles deep around this area, with mountainous terrain.
- There was no electricity cut-off, otherwise the automated messages could not have been sent.
- There has been mention of terrorism in the early days, and although the French autorities claim their views are open to all possibilities, at the moment this seems unlikely. There was an empty bomb threat made against Air France, but on another flight route, several days previously. I have not been able to find out though if it was for the same plane or not.
- As for dangerous cargo, oxygen tanks or fuel tanks exploding, at the moment there does not seem to be clues in these directions.
- There are surely vested interests as well. It's pretty sure that the issue of liability and insurance will be raised. Who will foot the bill?
- Air France has lost money this year. It would be in its interest to show that there was no shoddy repair work on the plane, that manuals and instructions were strictly adhered to, and that it was either the pilots fault or faulty equipment from the manufacturer Airbus.
- Airbus needs to show the planes don't just break up for one or two little pieces of equipment, or worse, for some problem with structural faults between composite and metal parts of the airplane.
- Twelve other flights took place more or less simulataneously and on the same flight routes or very near. None of the other flights reported problems. None saw anything. Therefore what happened to AF447 must be delineated as unique compared to the other flights.
- The Brazilians have shown much dedication and professionalism in this very difficult job. They have also been fairly transparent and humane in their communications, despite one or two little errors, but who could blame them?
- The United States are bringing equipment to help trace the black boxes.
- The French are bringing a nuclear submarine and a specific recovery submarine to find the boxes. That's in addition to other vessels searching for pieces and remains. Their communication behavior has not been up to par with that of the Brazilians, understandably considering their liabilities.
- For those using altitude in their astrology charts, the plane was probably, according to its flight plan, on level 350, ie. 35,000 feet or 11 km.
