MD-11 Exhaust Pipes

Look-up is suggesting the APU exhaust and other protrusions at the end of an MD-11 are suspicious.

However this schematic from 1989 clearly identifies it as the APU exhaust. Nothing suspicious at all. The APU is an electric generator, powered by jet fuel. Essentially a very small extra engine that just produces electricity (and exhaust gases).

The two white protrusions are hinge covers (see #54). Here's what the tailcone looks like folded down:

This is a DC-10, the same basic plane, showing the tailcone rotated down:

The black protrusions are drain masts for the APU compartment and tailcone sections. They look something like this:

Where are they getting "biological agents" from?

I think he might be alluding to "Morgellons".

As for the all-white livery and lack of windows, these are cargo planes. The aircraft pictured are operated by Nordic Global Airlines and a new company, Western Global Airlines, which shares a CEO (Jim Neff) with Nordic and which only began operations this month.

Thanks, I forgot to add an explanation.

My KC-10 with the APU exhaust door open and the APU running. The inlet door is visible to the left and slightly downwards, partially obscured by the boom.

I've seen NGA many times. It's absolutely empty, when there is no pallets.
I know that you know that. :)

Want pictures?

Seeing as Look Up are actively naming Nordic Global and Western Global as "chemtrail tankers", I wonder whether the owner of those airlines might care to make a cease-and-desist order. These baseless claims are pretty clearly libellous.

That could spur Ian on to the legal action he wants to take, although in reality I doubt an airline would bother to take action against such a small-scale Facebook operation.

IMG_2033.jpg IMG_8789.jpg IMG_8801.jpg NGA didn't get Nordic Global signs for I while. After getting them, it was stored for a long time. So, where's plane is white, photos are just older. :)
