Debunked: Chemtrail Plane Interior (Ballast Barrels)

The controls look like they are for a weather radar system.
The control on the right may be for antenna elevation up or down in degrees; "ALT". The left one may be the gain control (?).
The CRT screen seems to be multi-function; radar and a message display.
Can anybody identify the panel?

Weather radar. The CRT screen is the third CDU which is used for ACARS messaging and accessing the maintenance computer. The giveaway on the message is the carets at the start of the line..... which indicate that the line has been typed in ready to SEND. This is not a message that has been received by the aircraft.

Gimli, maybe there is something obvious I am missing but how do you determine that a contrail is 10,000 feet? The best rangefinder I have seen in any catalog goes to2,000 meters max.

It never ceases to amaze me when one claims to be able to "debunk" chemtrails using photographs and patents to prove a point. Especially when one fails to read the whole patent - I.E. US741315B2 (BTW the B2 designator is also part of the patent) On page 7 of 12 it clearly and concisely states the following: "In one aspect of the aerial delivery system, the fluid and/or material from at least one of water, gel, powder, decontamination compound, weather modification compound . . . . " Ooooops, was that "weather modification compound" Gracious, now what would that be? Seriously, go to the Evergreen site and you will also note that "Weather Modification" is but one of many that they advertise. Ever hear of the Air FOrce White paper called "Owning the weather in 2025" try googling that one up as well. What other delivery system would be effective in spreading any of the these listed compounds other than an aircraft. Why are forest fires burning hotter than ever? Why is aluminum, barium, strontium and other particualtes off the chart on the ground, in the water, snow and ice? Since none of these are naturally occurring in the magnitutde they are seen, then where does it come from? Ever hear of geo-engineering? How about David Kieth (Geo-Engineer) Debunk this, after you have had a chance to review all the data, and you will see that it IS happening, and has been done for years by the US, Russia, China and other NATO countries as well. Look up an article published in the Wall Street Journal called "Weather made to order" by a Russian COmpany. Now lets see if you have the testicular fortitude to post this and let everyone else research it as well.

Weather modification is cloud seeding. Cloud seeding has been going on publicly for 60+ years. They even take out ads in the paper when they are going to do it.

It's a totally different thing from the "chemtrail" theory.

Hi unregistered, you've basically given a laundry list of the sorts of thing chemtrails believers usually say. Try searching through through the site - all of the things you brought up have been addressed many times. If you like, choose one topic to discuss, and start a thread on it.

Just for laughs, someone has made this photo.
No doubt it'll appear in the woo-woo sites as proof though ...

I love it, LOL. This is a CDU from a Boeing is it not? 747 perhaps?

But now theorists are going to go crazy over this and no matter how much you try to tell them it's a prank, they are even going to be more convinced...

Its always funny to me when people mention Evergreen. I am pretty sure they only have one- 1 - plane capable of Weather Mod- one Supertanker.

...and yet somehow this is the smoking gun for all the "chemtrails" in the World.

http://www.evergreenaviation.com/supertanker/index.html

UNReg- actually EVERYTHING you mentioned- has been thoroughly examined. I suggest you read through some...or all...of the articles here- and then let us know what you think:

It's a Boeing of some sort, I'd need to have a better look at the panel to see which one. But it'll be a 747-400, 767, or 777.
The top panel is the radar control panel, the lower the screen from the Honeywell FMS.

This Video (uploaded Yesterday, around 300 views) has some of our photos in it



There a also airborne measurements installations and areal refuelling pods in it.

Maybe we should add the most common ones of them used by the chemtrail-believers, even if they are not "interior"
I would watch the video but it is now (sadly but unsurprisingly) private...

Massaria pulled the video himself after the mistakes in it were pointed out. He also asked me to remove the the thread about it, and was getting incredibly upset about it. Must have been rather embarrassing for him. Since the thread actually contained nothing new, despite it's length, I've removed it for now.

Interesting that he was so upset. I guess 'Indigos' may come not have as much patience as we normal folks do.

I told them it was pulled by the author because he was embarrased about the errors it contained. the comment is awaiting moderation.....

Mick I have to disagree with you removing the thread sorry - while it is embarrasing for Massaria it is also evidence that he pulled it himself for the reasons stated rather than it was done by TPTB to silence him or anyone else.

I have been photographing and filming chemtrails since 1997 and i wrote to my MP in 1998 and he wrote back after some time telling me that the British Government in a letter to me that the fuel used in aeroplanes contained HN03 mixed in with the fuel and it went on to state that there was nothing sinister it this acid being used. I have recently been in touch with my MP again last december 2012 and have yet to receive a reply. Anyone wanting a copy of the said letter can contact me via E.MAIL . derekgough@live.co.uk
That's Nitric acid. If you mix it with jet fuel it will burn and/or explode. It's used in bipropellant liquid fueled rocket with kerosene, such the the Scud missile. It's not used in jets.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liquid-fueled_rocket



HNO3 would be the oxidizer, and kerosene (jet fuel) the fuel.

It didn't sound right to me. I am busy with a lot of RL stuff today, so I didn't check for myself. Thanks

Wiki page on liquid rocket fuels - HNO3 was used very early on and then replaced with an inhibited version that had a little Hydrogen Fluoride addded - and can you see the CT's fuming at that??!!

The formula given for the inhibited mix on the wiki pages is:

IRFNA IIIa: 83.4% HNO3, 14% NO2, 2% H2O, 0.6% HF
IRFNA IV HDA: 54.3% HNO3, 44% NO2, 1% H2O, 0.7% HF
Where IRFNA stands for Inhibited Red Fuming Nitric Acid

Its heyday was when ICBMs were stil using liquid fuels in the 60's, although it was still in comon use in SCUD missiles at the time of the Gulf War.

John Massaria has posted his version of the events which were moved to the closed thread. It is rambling and somewhat incoherent, as well as containing numerous inaccuracies and misleading statements.

I was the maker of the original video, “The Most Topic Of 2013″. I decided to remove the video after it hit 89,000 hits and received much attention on many geo-watch cites, chem-trail type watch cites, social pages etc… even after I took it down, it’s very name and title now has no less than 7 pages worth of google search pages on the video and it was on it’s way of becoming huge… as it should be. But a few de-bunking “agents” representing themselves as correctors and fix it people, claimed I used photos in appropriately, the aluminum and steel “water” tanks for example which according to the “experts”, are filled with water.

These “water” tanks never contain chemicals or toxins. They also say the term CHEMtrail is not a real word… it is a conspiracy. Anyone using the word chemtrail is a conspirator and a conspiracy theorist. They prefer we all use their word… contrail (short for condensation-trail), or as I syntax it, CONtrail, that CON meaning “an instance of deceiving or tricking someone”. They claim water vapor from the CONtrail hits the air (depending on temperature and altitude) and could result in an UNINTENTIONAL cloud like formations and sometimes they spread and form into what they call cirrus clouds (usually near or around the colder areas like the troposphere).

They say all the photos, including satellite footage, pictures from concerned citizens depicting streaking white lines in our sky’s are all “water vapor” and contain very small amounts of other chemicals. We debated for a while, and my conclusion is, that particular video and teleconference bothered them so much, they investigated me, and tried in any way to intimidate and humiliate me on the web in a public forum and through social media. They also contacted me through all of my you-tube channels and even The John Mack Institute Program I am now a part of, they also infiltrated all 6 of my social media pages, and tried to intimidate me there as well, in addition to dragging me into their own “controlled and sometimes censored” de-bunking web site set up and Governed by the Laws of California, but most of the truly intimidating “agent” members were in fact from the United Kingdom. I will not go into further details, since I was forced to take legal action by requesting a cease and diciest of their defamatory remarks and public humiliation, as well as cyber-bulling, which included intimidation as a general practice.

The video is a “hot” topic, and I plan on correcting my “HUGE” errors, and re-releasing an updated version. When the United States Congressional House Bill HR2977: SEC. 7 mentions “CHEMTRAILS”, and a clear desire to stop them being used, and then latter that Bill and terminology is changed or EDITED or CENSORED out, we need to ask why. When people say look up, and the other people say it’s just water vapor, WE have the right to question it. When people like Paul A.Bernhardt of the Plasma Physics Division-NAVAL research Labs Washington D.C, issues “declassified papers” on Charged Aerosol Release Experiments, when papers like “Climate Change- National Global Change Research Plan 2012-2021 Effects Of Global Warming” and when independent scientists are hired by concerned citizens in Belgium such as the papers from The Belfort Group and produce a 325 page document called the “CONTRAIL SCIENCE and It’s Impact On Climate and Weather Manipulation Programs by The United States and It’s Allies”, or “The Technical Report of Governing Geoengineering Research” by Robert J. Lempert, or “Operational Defenses Through Weather Control…” by Michael C. Gogner, Major, United States Air Force,Or Jean Pierre Chalon Outline “GeoEngineering Proposals to fight Against Climate Change” we have a right to question “what is all this about playing God with OUR planet, and potentially harming our way of life.”
I also see that despite having taken down the video in embarrassment from his own site, John Massaria is still personally promoting his original hoax video on other Youtube channels, complete with the ballast barrel hoax pictures as he originally created it:

massariasociopath.JPG

Michael J. Murphy is also promoting the original version of Massaria's "Ballast Barrel" hoax video:
https://www.facebook.com/WhatintheWorldAreTheySpraying/posts/193177907472544

Massaria says he has allied with Dane Wigington, who is sill carrying the hoax story that claims Youtube removed John Masaria's original Ballast Barrel Hoax video:
http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/dane-wigington-interview-pulled-from-utube/

However, Wigington's website no longer hosts a copy of John Massaria's original Ballast Barrel Hoax video:
http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/videos/the-most-important-topic-for-everyone-in-2013.mp4

=================================================
So, what we have here is evidence that John Massaria, Michael J. Murphy, and Dane Wigington are knowingly participating in what should henceforth always be referred to as:

John Massaria's Ballast Barrel Hoax video

We need to recognize that there is no reasoning with people like this who are willing to knowingly pervert photos of ordinary equipment used to safety test passenger airliners to promote this hoax. These people are irredeemable, there is no cooperation with them, no sweet-talk, no explanation, and no changing them once they reach this point.

They are morally bankrupt. All you can do is to fight them with the truth, backed up with documented facts.
Their worst fear is the exposure of what they are doing, and they will make every effort to prevent that.
Do not waver in your opposition, or else they and the lies they represent win by your default.

He publicly humiliated himself . and he is continuing to do it. Now most of his followers won't understand, but at least he isn't using a REAL science page to promote his nonsense

I don't think anyone here would say that. Water vapor is invisible. I think we said that the trails are comprised of ice that is the frozen condensation of the water vapor in the exhaust (and some from the environment). I do hope the moderator on corrects him on that point.

I think John is basically new to the whole Chemtrail thing, and he's just trawling through the old stuff without checking to see if it has been debunked. It's an unfortunate pattern - a well meaning individual jumps into a topic they know nothing about, and just start regurgitating through the usual suspects because they don't take the time to check things out. I see on Facebook he's posted the hoax "letter from an airline mechanic" that's 13 years old, as if it were something new.

I like that analogy that old long debunked and discarded chemtrailer claims are like old fishermen's driftnets still floating about in the sea/internet, capturing and entangling and half drowning unwary newcomers to the scene, whilst the more experienced recognise what they are and just swim around them.

I am not convinced this conclusion is correct. At some points in the discussion with John, I sensed that his conviction was shaken.

The point I want to make is that people who are about to question fundamental things about themselves and their beliefs tend to be more sensitive in their perception of tone and emotion. I had moments in my life where I had that first-hand experience, and it was a hard and week-long process to accept negative judgement from others, even if they had a point.

What I'm trying to say is that there may be moments when special care is advised.

The fact alone that one believer faces several eager debunkers may induce the perception of being overwhelmed or even threatened, notwithstanding the best intentions. I don't know how this can be solved without serious self-restriction, to be honest - in an ideal case, one or two debunkers would reply to the believer's posts, with 'bystanders' contributing arguments in closed communication with the 'speakers'.

However, I suggest that in these 'sensitive' moments, particular restraint should be applied regarding the tone of the discussion. Why not send a signal of sympathy to ease the way?
Insisting of concession is not helpful, I am pretty sure about that. And there are moments when the 'strict teacher' approach is inappropriate (side glance to you, Jay).

Not every character is alike, of course. But why not try a little empathy first before getting tough?

I may be an atheist, but I'm also a preacher's son and I think that some 'friendly techniques' are effective to soften up a conflict.

It is a actual technique though, one which has been previously tested even if not occurring now how can you know (forgive me i've not read the thread) that THIS picture OR any others aren't ones of a actual plane which is designed to do something which can happen? even if it isn't a general thing which happens constantly?

Quickly looked through, OK, i take your point about those pictures - but surely a chemtrailing set up would look the same? I mean they're running tests, or were - *tries to find study* with ships which pump sea water in the air to achieve the same effect somewhere on the coast of the USA. they clearly do want to get to grips with the tech, so do you all deny that they perhaps test it from time to time with planes and metals?
