The aircraft, a DC-9-32, registered N904VJ, was the 496th DC-9 assembled at the Long Beach plant, was 27 years old at the time and had been previously flown by Delta Air Lines. Its first flight was April 18, 1969. Delivered to Delta on May 27, 1969, as N1281L, the airframe flew for Delta until the end of 1992, when it was retired and sold back to McDonnell Douglas. McDonnell Douglas then sold the plane to ValuJet in 1993. The aircraft was powered by two Pratt & Whitney JT8D-9A turbofan engines. The aircraft had suffered a series of incidents in the two years before the crash, including two aborted takeoffs and eight emergency landings. Engine and pressurization errors were the primary issues in several of the incidents. In May 1995, the FAA issued a re-wiring directive for all DC-9 cockpits because the wire bundles in the switch panel could cause "fire and uncontrolled smoke throughout the cockpit as a result of chafing and shorting." In the flight deck were two experienced pilots: Captain Candi Kubeck (35) and First Officer Richard Hazen (52). Captain Kubeck had accumulated 8,928 total flight hours throughout her career (including 2,116 hours on the DC-9) and First Officer Hazen had more than 11,800 total flight hours throughout his career, with 2,148 of them on the DC-9. On the afternoon of May 11, 1996, Flight 592 pushed back from gate G2 in Miami after a delay of 1 hour and 4 minutes due to mechanical problems. There were 105 passengers, mainly from Florida and Georgia, as well as a crew of two pilots and three flight attendants, bringing the total number of people on board to 110. At 2:04 PM EDT, 10 minutes before the disaster, the DC-9 took off from runway 9L (now runway 8R) and began a normal climb. The NTSB quickly determined that just before takeoff, 144 expired chemical oxygen generators, each slightly larger than the size of a tennis ball can, had been placed in the cargo compartment in five boxes marked COMAT (company material) by ValuJet's maintenance contractor, SabreTech, in violation of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations forbidding the transport of hazardous materials in passenger aircraft cargo holds. Failure to cover the generators' firing pins with the prescribed plastic caps made an accidental activation much more likely. The investigation revealed that rather than covering them, the cords attached to the firing pins were simply cut or duct-taped around the cans, and Scotch tape was also used to stick the ends down. SabreTech employees indicated on the cargo manifest that the "oxy canisters", which were loosely packed in the boxes that were each sealed with tape and bubble wrap, were "empty". ValuJet workers then loaded the boxes in the cargo hold in the mistaken belief that the devices that they contained were just empty canisters, thus being certified as supposedly "safe" to transport on a passenger aircraft, when in fact they were neither simple oxygen canisters, nor empty. Chemical oxygen generators, when activated, produce oxygen for passengers if the plane suffers a decompression. However, they also produce a great quantity of heat due to the exothermic nature of the chemical reaction involved. Therefore, not only could the heat and generated oxygen start a fire, but the oxygen could also keep the fire burning. The fire was worsened by the presence of two main aircraft tires (one of them mounted on a main wheel) and a nose tire and wheel that were also included in the list of materials shipped as COMAT. Investigators determined that one of the oxygen generators was likely triggered when the plane experienced a slight jolt while taxiing. As the aircraft taxied and took off, the activated generator got hotter and hotter. Soon, the boxes and surrounding packaging ignited, starting a fire. At 2:10 PM, the passengers started to smell smoke. At the same time, the pilots heard a loud bang in their headphones and noticed the plane was losing electrical power. The sag in electrical power and the bang were eventually determined to be the result of a tire in the cargo hold exploding. Seconds later, a flight attendant entered the cockpit and informed the flight crew of a fire in the passenger cabin. Passengers' shouts of "fire, fire, fire" were recorded on the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) when the cockpit door was opened. Though ValuJet's flight attendant training manual stated that the cockpit door should not be opened when smoke or other harmful gases might be present in the cabin, the intercom was not functional and informing the pilots of what was happening was difficult. The flight data recorder (FDR) indicated a progressive failure of the DC-9's electrical and flight control systems due to the spreading fire. Kubeck and Hazen immediately asked air traffic control for a return to Miami due to the increasing smoke in the cockpit and cabin, and were given instructions for a return to the airport. One minute later, Hazen requested the nearest available airport. Kubeck began to turn the plane left in preparation for the return to Miami. Flight 592 disappeared from radar at 2:13:42 PM, the exact time that it crashed. Eyewitnesses nearby watched as the plane banked sharply, rolled onto its side and nosedived into the Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area in the Everglades, a few miles west of Miami, at a speed in excess of 507 miles per hour (816 km/h). Kubeck lost control of the plane less than 10 seconds before impact. Examination of debris suggested that the fire had burned through the floorboards in the cabin, resulting in structural failure and damage to cables underneath the instrument panels. The NTSB report on the accident stated, "the Safety Board cannot rule out the possibility that the flightcrew was incapacitated by smoke or heat in the cockpit during the last 7 seconds of the flight." Interruptions in the cockpit voice recorder occurred on two occasions, one as long as 1 minute 12 seconds. The aircraft hit the water at 2:13:42 PM EDT, about 10 minutes after takeoff. The impact site was on the western edge of Florida Water Conservation Area 3B, between two levees, in an area known as the L-67 Pocket. None of the 110 passengers or crew on board survived the accident. Additionally, recovery of the aircraft and victims was made extremely difficult by the location of the crash. The nearest road of any kind was more than a quarter mile (400 m) away from the crash scene, and the location of the crash itself was a deep-water swamp with a floor of solid limestone. The aircraft was destroyed on impact, with no large pieces of the fuselage remaining. Sawgrass, alligators, and risk of bacterial infection from cuts plagued searchers involved in the recovery effort. According to the NTSB's report, two witnesses fishing nearby testified that "they saw a low-flying airplane in a steep right bank. According to these witnesses, as the right bank angle increased, the nose of the airplane dropped and continued downward. The airplane struck the ground in a nearly vertical attitude." They reported seeing no external damage or any sign of fire or smoke other than the engine exhaust. A group of sightseers in a small private plane also witnessed the crash and provided a nearly identical account, stating that Flight 592 seemed to "disappear" after hitting the swamp and they could see nothing but scattered small debris, part of an engine, and a large pool of jet fuel near the crash site.

Hello everyone! I'm so glad you've joined us today for episode 127, “Don't Let Fear Drive Us Apart.” Center Stage in Paris A missionary friend serving in Paris wrote the following in a recent newsletter I received. It's about the proof of vaccination that's now being required there. “...uncertainty continues to be the order of the day. The Passe Sanitaire, literally, “Sanitary Pass” continues to fuel strong debate and disagreement as the demonstrations across the country grow each Saturday. The scientific and medical communities are divided too, and more and more people in 'high places' are speaking out against the pass. I haven't been to a single dinner, picnic, or tea with friends where it hasn't taken center stage. The angst is real! Pray for us…” And then in a recent Skype call with a missionary in Germany, they told me “the vaccination issue is all you hear in the media in Germany, almost nothing else. There's a strong appeal from the government to solidarity. That we're all in this together as good citizens and there's something wrong with you if you don't want to get the vaccine. The same thing is happening in Austria.” Both of these missionaries see fear driving us apart What the US government is doing Here in the US all across the country, the government has been offering lots of incentives. Here are a few I found from this past summer: Ohio Anyone ages 12 to 25 was eligible to win five $100,000 scholarships and 50 $10,000 scholarships. Hawaii 21 different prizes including: Airline miles and free tickets from 5 different airlines, including 50 free airline tickets from Southwest Airlines. Hotel and resort gift packages. Pizza for a Year courtesy of Papa John's $1,000 gift card courtesy of NAPA Auto Parts Massachusetts Fully vaccinated residents,18 or older, had a chance to win one of the five $1 million prizes, while those between the ages of 12 and 17 were eligible to win one of five $300,000 scholarship grants. New Mexico Five weekly drawings will award four $250,000 cash prizes each week. A grand prize of $5 million was awarded at the conclusion of the sweepstakes, in early August, to one winner drawn from the statewide pool of vaccinated New Mexicans. Memphis, Tennessee There was a sweepstake for a free car to any resident who was vaccinated. Alabama The Talladega Superspeedway is offered people aged 16 and older who choose to be tested and/or vaccinated the thrill of driving their car or truck on the 2.66-mile track. Drivers and their riders will take two laps behind a pace car at highway speed, including the 33-degree-high banks. Deleware Prison officials offered inmates five days of good time credits, a free video visit, a snack bag or a special meal, and an opportunity to be scheduled first for in-person visitations when they resume. Wisconsin $100 gift card, lots of states are doing this A free creme puff at the Wisconsin State Fair in August Indiana A box of Girl Scout cookies. Really? That's an incentive? Another idea to change people's behavior Another suggestion to encourage people to get vaccinated appeared in a letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal. It's called the H.E.A.R. technique H. Hear. Ask open-ended questions E. Express gratitude. Thank you for sharing. A. Ask about the pros and cons of getting the vaccine R. Respond. Summarize what you've heard Pretty lame. I don't think it's going to prevent fear driving us apart. Questions we're not asking How do we improve our immune system? How did people handle the Spanish flu of 1918? What did they do to get out of it? So what does this divisive issue mean for us? How are we to view this issue in light of our relationships. How can we get the vaccine issue off center stage as my French missionary friend describes, and throw it in the dumpster out in the alley behind the theater? I have a few ideas. It starts with the observation that we are all a little afraid. The vaccinated The vaccinated are afraid the unvaccinated are going to infect us all, and then we in turn will infect others, including our loved ones. They may even end up putting us in the hospital. Or in the grave. They are afraid the unvaccinated will surely prolong this pandemic, and it will then take that much longer for life to return to normal. The vaccinated are afraid our country is turning into a nation of ignorant self-centered people who only care about themselves and not the common good. The unvacinated The unvaccinated, however, are afraid liberties are being taken away, where the government is taking more and more control of the daily lives of its citizens. They're afraid the government doesn't know what it's doing because the “science” they point to changes on a weekly basis. Remember “Two Weeks to Flatten the Curve?” They ask. Some of the unvaccinated are afraid because this issue reminds them too much of the medical science that endorsed lobotomies as approved medical treatment in the middle of the last century. They're afraid something's amiss when highly esteemed medical professionals are silenced when they raise concerns about side effects of the vaccine, like strokes, blood clots, and enlarged hearts. They're afraid because they fear the shaming some of them are experiencing for their stance will only get worse. I would say this to both groups: Acknowledge that we're all a bit fearful now. Let's help each other in our fear. Let's be afraid together, not emotionally apart from one another. Here's the main point I hope you remember from today's episode Don't let fear drive us apart because of our differing views of the vaccine. Extend grace to others on the opposite side of the issue as we are. The other side isn't stupid. Most of us are doing the best we can with the information we have. Fear Covid, but not each other.

Jason Kunisch, a 20-year commercial airline pilot and member of the U.S. Freedom Flyers, joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss issues playing out in the airline industry, after Southwest Airlines cancelled over a thousand flights over the past weekend due to, what they claim, as ‘weather issues.' Giordano notes that there has been a lot of pushback against vaccine mandates in the industry, which has gone largely unreported, which could also contribute to the necessity to cancel flights. Kunisch explains the qualms that many pilots have with the mandates that are being forced upon them, and tells of the purpose of U.S. Freedom Flyers and what the organization hopes to accomplish.

As far-right efforts to “audit” the 2020 election fizzle, some of the movement's biggest names have accused each other of being communists, FBI informants, and “homewreckers.” Meanwhile, other right-wing figures have more pressing concerns: namely, how to launch their own airlines for pilots and passengers who refuse to be vaccinated. And hosts Kelly Weill and Will Sommer dish on the dumbest new t-shirt slogan that's about to take off with Trump fans. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

With over 2,000 Southwest flights cancelled or delayed across the country, and the company trying baselessly to blame the weather, Charlie examines the real reason behind the quagmire and walks through why the brave men and women standing up against the Corporate Oligarchy's vaccine mandates are some of the bravest among us on the frontlines of the culture war. Diving even deeper, Charlie walks through the activist media's sinister motivation for not covering this massive story with any semblance of truth. And finally, with Columbus Day upon us yet again, and with the left continuing to co-opt this historic occasion on behalf of so-called "indigenous people," Charlie ends the show by resisting the calls to Cancel Columbus.

Highlights: “There's a total media blackout as to why Southwest, in particular, has had so many flight cancellations over the weekend, again upwards of 30% of their flights.” “We're starting to get some leaks as of today, CNBC reports that Southwest did indeed confirmed that they were experiencing ‘their own shortage of available staff' over the weekend that did contribute to the massive cancellations.” “More and more alt media sites such as Breitbart are coming out and reporting that this was indeed due to a mass walkout by pilots and other airline staff in protest against the vax mandates imposed on them by Southwest.”“The legacy media's refusal to even consider a mass sickout is in itself considered increasingly sickening to more and more people. And so, they're going to alt media for the kind of on the ground investigative reporting that used to characterize the mainstream legacy media before the rise of the network society.” Timestamps:[02:05] The mass cancellation of flights in Southwest airlines and why many believe it's not due to the weather conditions[03:10] Why there's a media blackout as to the real reason for the canceled flights[04:15] How many believe that the flight cancellations were due to mass sickout staged by pilots protesting the vax mandate[06:08] On the ripple effect of the backlash against vax mandates[07:40] How the alternative media is winning over the old legacy mediaResources:Ep. 678 Support for SECESSION SURGES Among Trump and Biden Voters!!!Sign up for the FREE webinar on October 14th here!
