Very similar image in my memory (as albion's foto)

Not my 'foto'.

I have never set foot on the American continent.

I'm just a student of this thread.

If you bother to read it all, or have just kept up with it since it started, you'll know that all the photos and answers are here. You just have to look hard enough.

Pizza/Salad bar/whatever business started up with 'airplane' proceeds eh?

A few other businesses too I'll bet.

Just spent two days reading this. Firstly, the reader is drawn in by an alluring story about drugs, the FBI, murder, climber hitting the jackpot. The plot seems to thicken as more and more details emerge about the plane crash and the events leading up to it. The reader starts off hating the character Sidmo, but as time goes on the reader realizes that this whole thread is a big pot of steaming sh#t. The author clearly is interested at first, but gets caught up in the details and soon loses interest in his project. This book has been in the works for what like 8 years? Don't give me that sh#t about how you have to research to get everything right blah blah blah. The solution is bloody simple! End the f*#king book! End it! Enddddddddd it! You have clearly reached a road block with conflicting information and you need to add that in and leave it up to the reader. Maybe it was sabotage maybe not but you will never f*#king know because the plane is chopped up into a thousand pieces. I should have known when you said you were an engineer that this would never come to fruition... You could write this book 100 times and still not be happy because you're a perfectionist. Give it a f*#king rest.

Sidmo, sorry for hating you in my mind at first, I now see you were probably the most accurate all along in regards to this book never getting finished. This is seriously f*#ked. What the f*#k!

Seventeen months after an American-registered DC9 airliner was busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine, a major international scandal is brewing over a second drug trafficking incident in Mexico’s Yucatan involving an American-registered jet owned by a dummy front company ofthe kind usually associated with the CIA.

absolutely move on to bigger and better and more recent crashes


a Florida registered Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA crash landed on
September 24, 2007 after it ran out of fuel over Mexico's Yucatan
Peninsula it had a cargo of almost 4 tons of cocaine on board now
documents have turned up on both sides of the Atlantic that link this
Cocaine Smuggling Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA that crashed in
Mexico to the CIA who used it on at least 3 rendition flights from Europe
to Guantanamo Bay between 2003 to 2005.

The men flying the plane disappeared into the jungle – including one woman,
the CIA refuses to comment, and the mainstream press don’t want to touch
the story.

vaguely remembered that story. googled it and got a laugh

New Scientific Discovery Links Drug Planes to Quarks

Mexican authorities and the American DEA have apparently
concluded that Mankind’s knowledge of the ownership of
large commercial and business jets busted carrying multi-ton
loads of narcotics is governed, like the understanding of
the movement of subatomic quarks,
by Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle.

The more influential the listed owner of the plane is,
the more uncertain the identification becomes!

Move on to bigger better more recent busts? Those busts dont have dirt bag old climbers fishing for fuel soaked pot in a large us park. Yucatan? Dime a dozen. Keep it going Lickey. I would like to hear a good story.

It’s been amusing to read the posts of those you weren’t party to the plane crash bemoan this book and demand with anger its immediate publishing. Of course they want to read it; it is a fantastic story with accouterments of lure and legend for the ages. Those who went there or were part of the real story seem content. Over time, this thread becomes most of the story, all right. Like any such tale based on truth, those who learn of it lacking first-hand knowledge want to know more and remain unsatisfied no matter what. Take your time, Licky.

Thanks TM for the kind words. As the research moves forward I am still finding a number of stories that no one has heard. Isn't that what this event is all about? If you know all...then the story ends.

the end of another year on the ol' thread trail, and still more teaser innuendoes of fantastically interesting stories to be revealed later are all we get for Xmas from Santalicky - we've passed the 1900 mark and are now into the twentieth century of licky's madness - more stories, huh licky? so what? nobody will ever read 'em, and nobody cares no more - an earlier post from someone suggested sneak-previewing a chapter or two - licky'd have to be writing a book to do that, and clearly that's not the mission here - what the purpose of this ridiculous thread is we'll never know, but it ain't about no book - happy holidaze threadsters, if you feel emboldened light a fire under licky's ass and get him to prove me wrong - that would undoubtedly thrill some of you morons - oh shucks, i'm not alienating any of you fine upstanding citizens am I? and I wanted everyone to like me

If someone is intent on publishing, they should absolutely NOT post anything more than the slightest excerpt online.Post a chapter?

Hot Damn - first post of 2014. It's probably in here somewhere already, but I think I've developed epiretinal membrane/macular pucker from staring at all this sheeit.

The Jesuitical Bachar, when asked why he didn’t try for a bigger haul, said he knew when enough was enough: “I felt lucky to get in and out once. Everyone gets busted when they get greedy.”

Don't get greedy.
Know when enough is enough.
Keep a good head and always carry a light bulb.

If you get busted, call:


Sorry Reilly, Ms. Earhart was quite familiar with the seaplane and would never have indulged in such folly. That is to say, landing in a lake without benefit of pontoons.
