Chemtrails – FAA Official Confirms Ongoing East Coast ‘Military Operation’

(NOTE – We do not necessarily think this story explains anything more than what it purports: that military operations of some type were carried out at a certain altitude on several occasions which allegedly necessitated there-routing of some incoming civilian air traffic in the Northeast. There are dozens of potential military operations which might account for the need to clear airspace. There are apparent typos and inconsistencies in the text of this ‘news release’ such as: “While air traffic controllers normally ignore air traffic above 10,000 feet, the…” Certainly, this is an inaccurate statement because air traffic controllers DO NOT ‘normally ignore air traffic above 10,000 feet’.)
PORTLAND, ME – An FAA official in charge of air traffic control over the northeastern United States has confirmed an ongoing military operation in America,s skies. In an exclusive taped interview with freelance radio reporter S. T. Brendt, the Air Traffic Control (ATC) manager said he was told on as many as four occasions in March, 2001 to re-route commercial air traffic around military aircraft taking part in an undisclosed aerial operation over the northeastern seaboard.
On her way to the interview location, Brendt observed six big jets laying brilliant white lines above a broken cloud layer. Instead of dissipating like normal condensation trails, these lingering plumes grew wider and wider, intersecting and merging.
Speaking on condition of strict anonymity as intense chemtrail activity continued overhead, this Deep Sky federal aviation source expressed concern over the classified nature of military operations repeatedly conducted at altitudes between 37,000 and 40,000 feet. While air traffic controllers normally ignore air traffic above 10,000 feet, the ATC manager said he was ordered to divert incoming European air traffic away from the military planes.
When asked why, he said, “I was told there was a military exercise in the area. Of course, they wouldn’t give me any of the particulars.”
The initial FAA disclosure came on March 12, as mass aerial maneuvers saturated northeastern U.S. skies with Xs, circular patterns and parallel lines characteristic of chemtrail activity reported by pilots, police officers and former military personnel across the United States.
Brendt contacted the FAA official after counting more than 30 big jets spreading persistent plumes within 45 minutes. Lou Aubuchont confirmed Brendt’s count, noting that during his stint in U.S. Navy intelligence he had never seen a military exercise of such magnitude.
After Brendt called in her sightings, assistant WMWV news director Richard Dean counted 370 chemical trails criss-crossing his nearby location for six-and-a-half hours. But local Air Traffic Controllers reported only nine commercial jets on their radars at the time.
Thousands of eye-witnesses have reported similar spray activity obscuring North American skies over the past two years.
In December, 2000 Canadian aviation authority Terry Stewart investigated a Victoria caller’s complaint of intensive chemtrail activity over the British Columbia capitol. In a taped message, the environmental manager for the Victoria International Airport checked with the control tower and reported, “It’s a military exercise, U.S. and Canadian air force exercise that’s going on.They wouldn’t give me any specifics on it.”
Stewart added that he found the incident – one of hundreds reported over B.C. since the fall of 1998 – very odd.
The aircraft laying lingering X’s and grids over Vancouver Island have been photo-identified as USAF KC-135 and KC-10 aerial refueling tankers. U.S. Air Force Weather Force Specialists intent on fulfilling an official USAF mission to Own The Weather refer to chemical cloud cover spread by high flying tankers as aerial obscuration.
Outbreaks of acute upper respiratory and gastrointestinal illness, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, dizziness, and nose bleeds have filled hospital emergency rooms across the U.S. and Canada following heavy spray days.
In November, 1999, 550 residents of the small town of Espanola, Ontario presented a petition to the Canadian government demanding an explanation and an end to aerial spraying by USAF tankers they claimed was making children and adults sick over a 55 square mile area. The Air Force denied flying tankers over Espanola. The Canadian defense ministry has yet to respond to the citizens, complaint.
On Nov. 20,1999, Brendt was admitted to hospital with a gushing nosebleed and pains in her chest after inadvertently photographing dozens of chemtrails over Parsonsfield, Maine. Nosebleeds are a common symptom of chemtrail exposure. “Now I know what this is,” Brendt says. “I never get nosebleeds.”
