The Death Plane- An Omen
On 23rd July the New Zealand Herald carried a front-page banner promo
‘Black future for Air New Zealand’. Inside on page A5 was an article
headed ‘Air NZ scraps teal colour for black tails’. It provoked a letter
from G J John headlined ‘Welcome aboard the flying hearse’ (Letter of
the week NZH 28th July) It may not be all that fanciful. People of old
believed in omens. Perhaps that is because they were smarter than the
smart-phone generation, more in touch with the real world.
Zealand took delivery of its first RWC-promoting black Airbus A320 in
Auckland on 1st February 2011 and the photo duly appeared in the next
day’s Herald. As Mr Johns remarked (for most of the world) black is the
colour of mourning. And so it was to be for New Zealand just 20 days
later. On 22nd February, the ‘Big One’, long expected in Wellington,
instead shattered Christchurch, fatally wounding both Anglican and Catholic
cathedrals and killing 181 people, the majority of them, 115, in the
'modern' CTV building. Was the arrival of the black plane
indeed an omen? Air New Zealand had had 13 Airbuses before Perpignan....Now they were back to 13 Airbuses, unlucky for some
Nobody but the U.S. Air Force and Air New Zealand paint aircraft in
black. But perhaps New Zealand's obsession with all things black is just
another indicator of destiny. And remember that the last Air New Zealand
disaster the Airbus A320 - another Airbus note - (AB All-Black AirBus)
was just off the French coast near Perpignan in November, 2008 . But the
omen was already there waiting. Dan Carter had arrived to play for the
French rugby team of Perpignan a few days earlier. It certainly was a
case of ‘all-black in Perpignan’. Chance?
But in June 2011 there came a strange code repeat. On 11th June, the
Herald again printed an image of the black A320 Airbus. However it was
done in a very strange way. The plane was broken in two. The front part
of the plane was shown in section A of the paper but the rear half of
the plane at a different magnification was reproduced in the Business
News section of the paper. Two days later came the third Christchurch
earthquake, which broke the West face of the Anglican Cathedral in two,
the beautiful rose window. It was then that I understood how
it all fitted in with Rev Michael Cocks and his Rose Window,,,, And the
article alongside the photo of the newly devastated cathedral contained
a fascinating element of proof confirming everything I have said about
design. The Christchurch earthquakes are God's warning to New
Zealand. But New Zealanders have ignored the warning, just as did
the Americans with 9/11.
But even that code repeat was not the end of it. Six months later came
repeat. On 19th December the NZ Herald printed an illustration of Air New
Zealand's latest foolhardiness, its latest attempt to pay homage to the
false gods of rugby. I have nothing against the lads personally but I
heartily dislike the super-hype of the official New Zealand religion of rugby. That
19th December picture showed two
all-blacks, Sandy Ellison and Kieran Read in front of a brand new jet
black Boeing 777-300 ER outside the Boeing factory in Seattle on the
previous Friday night, i.e. 16th December. The B777 is a big one, not a
little A320. Seven days later came the fourth Christchurch earthquake,
on 23rd December. Again the airport was closed for the afternoon,
whilst checks were carried out. ( And again the FO 7pm Air New Zealand
flight NZ557 left Auckland for Christchurch late that night..... at
Why does that 'coincidence' matter?
Problems with Probability for the circumstances surrounding my
awareness of its previous late departure at 7.39pm in June 1995 and the
of the meaning of that coincidence
And of course none of
Christchurch's churches could be used over Christmas. They all had to be
re-checked by civil engineers after the
( Shades of CTV?) So, all the Midnight Mass services had to
be held outside in the open-air on Christmas Eve. After the latest
Hammer of God in the Earth, did any of the worshippers look to the
heavens that night to see
the latest Hammer of God in the sky. For there was a bright '50-year'
comet, clearly visible in all its glory, just 5 years after the last
50-year comet - Comet McNaught in January, 2007.
The new comet was a kind of 'star in the
East' especially for the Southern Hemisphere at Christmas. It was Comet
Lovejoy, but there was not much sign of love or joy that Christmas in
Christchurch or in the rest of New Zealand, a land mired in recession.
NASA calculated that this comet had a return period of 666 years. So it could
perhaps have last been seen just before the Black Death swept through
Europe in 1345. Was it meant to be another omen relating black to death?
Was it also a pointer to the bleak future for mankind now? It is
certainly a warning to a world controlled by 666 in its many guises.
No! No! No!
That's rubbish! Of course it is all chance! It has to be!
Anyone else for our blinkers? We also have some really nice
rose-tinted spectacles!! (Perhaps they match the window).
But why does it have to be chance? Only because that is the way the opinion
formers want it to be. Is there not something beyond our material world
of space and time something which we can barely glimpse, an orchestrator
of space and time perhaps. Could there indeed be a God after all?
at the very curious coincidence in the recent rowing ‘disaster’ as some
have called it in the
Olympic Games at Eton Dorney.
