  •  The plane's flight path is extremely revealing (0+ / 0-)

    Normal course until well into western Austria and about to cross into Italian airspace - then a SHARP 180 and flight in the direction it had been coming FROM.

    That says there was some MAJOR refusal - either of permission to enter air space, or permission to land for refueling, or possibly both.

    The Mass Media has added its own share of garbling and disinformation with allegations of a "stop for refueling" in "Spanish territory" - which DID NOT HAPPEN YESTERDAY, as the plane never got anywhere near Spanish territory.

    AFTER being cleared to leave Vienna and fly over Spanish and Portuguese territory TODAY - AFTER it was made clear that there were no unauthorized passengers on board - the plane refueled at Gran Canaria (in the Canary Islands, which is Spanish territory) and continued on to Bolivia. I have yet to hear if it landed safely - but since I haven't heard otherwise....

    If it's
    Not your body,
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    And it's
    None of your damn business!
