Hi Phil,

This is a report on a possible new Chemtrail game/scenario currently active downunder in the land of OZ. These are early days and this might be a false alarm but please take a look and tell me what you think. I shall keep you informed of relevant developments ..........................

As you may recall I recently e-mailed you preliminary info concerning our nationwide problem re the New Millennium grounding of many of OZ's piston engine aircraft due to contamination of avgas produced at the Mobil Oil Australia Ltd.'s Altona refinery in Melbourne.

Mobil notified the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) on the 22nd of December 1999 about an Avgas 100/130 contamination problem.

Several piston engined aircraft had in the preceding week or so suffered engine out power failures on take off. This was soon traced to contaminated Mobil Avgas. The problems encountered were engine stoppage incidents, electric boost pump failures, black sticky deposits on brass components in aircraft fuel systems including filters, carburettor components, and fuel lines and pumps.

The contaminant was apparently rapidly identified by Mobil as ethylene di-amine (EDA) and it has been stated that an increase (accidental or deliberate ???) in the dosage of ethylene di-amine caused an unexpected reaction in the Avgas that led to the contamination of the fuel and thereby the aircraft fuel systems. Ethylene di-amine reacts with copper or brass in the aircraft fuel system parts to produce a black or purple contaminant - termed locally "black goo" or "vegemite goo".

CASA and Mobil immediately advised Australian aircraft owners and operators to check fuel systems for evidence of this problem before further flight.

On the 8th of January 2000 CASA was advised by aircraft operators that a second form of contamination had been found in aircraft initially cleared of the first "black goo" contamination. This second form of contamination consists of a white powder deposited substance - "white goo", and a clear gel substance - "clear goo".They are harder to detect than the black "vegemite goo" being found mainly inside the fuel tanks and fuel lines.

CASA immediately grounded all aircraft that had used the suspect Mobil Avgas on the 10th of January 2000. This order affected some 5000 aircraft throughout the high density population states of Queensland (south of Townsville), NSW, ACT, Victoria, and parts of South Australia. Piston engined aircraft in the sparsely populated regions of Australia, namely Western Australia, the Northern Territory, most of South Australia, and northern Queensland, where Shell and BP supply the Avgas from local refineries are largely unaffected.

Stories have since surfaced in the Australian press about similar contamination being observed in piston engined aircraft some two years earlier in March 1998.
Aircraft operators noticed problems with clogged fuel pumps over the past two years yet inspite of notification and complaints directed to CASA and Mobil there was apparently no action taken.There have also been press and public discussion of the large number of fatal and other aircraft crashes and incidents that occurred across Australia during November and December 1999 - just prior to the "discovery" of the contaminated fuel situation. Mobil is said by CASA to have released contaminated Avgas 100/130 from a production batch during the period 21st November to 23rd December 1999.

Mobil rapidly devised a simple chemical test kit to determine if an aircraft fuel system had the ethylene diamine (EDA) "black goo" contaminant. Their intention being to try and clear aircraft to fly again as soon as possible. However the Australian Government CASA organisation appointed independent Professor Trimm, of the University of NSW Chemistry Department, to evaluate the Mobil "EDA" test method. Professor Trimm was unable to immediately identify the nature of the second contaminants - "white goo" and "clear goo" - and has thus refused to give permission for Mobil's EDA test to suffice for determining the safety clearance status of the contaminated aircraft fuel systems. Professor Trimm doubts that the "white and clear goos" are related to the EDA over dosing of the Avgas - as suggested by Mobil. He is uncertain as to the exact nature of the entire contamination problem and therefore he is insisting on completely independent laboratory testing to determine the true fuel problem. CASA have been criticised by many aircraft operators for relying initially on poor data supplied by Mobil from their labs - an obvious legally interested party, and for their lack of reaction to past fuel contamination complaints.

The 5000 Australian piston engined aircraft remain grounded until the exact nature of the "white and clear goo" has been determined and a reliable decontamination method devised and proven. The Australian Government have promised a full investigation of all factors including CASA's apparently "too cozy" association with Mobil. Acting Prime Minister Anderson sent Mobil a "strongly worded" letter demanding that Mobil improve it's poor track record of handing on the facts of the case to CASA.. Since that time Mobil are reportedly to have vastly increased their co-operation with Australian authorities...........

The situation is causing severe economic hardship to piston engined aircraft operators, with one estimate of losses running to some A$50 million per month. There is a knock on effect to many isolated communities such as offshore islands etc. who cannot now transport fish and other products rapidly to market. Mobil is facing the possibility of huge legal suits for compensation, a Melbourne law firm is proposing a class action. Following demands from Acting Prime Minister Anderson for suitable compensation payments Mobil have offered an initial "Hardship Payment of upto A$10,000 per affected aircraft to help pay the costs of fuel decontamination. Mobil are apparently willing to suffer a barrage of criticism and leave the larger compensation issue to the Courts.

Overseas (mainly American) aircraft manufacturers have been approached with requests for advice on effective decontamination procedures. But until the exact nature of the contaminant(s ?) has been determined, a safe and effective decontamination method cannot be devised, and all aircraft must remain grounded.
It may be that special fuel system parts must be manufactured to prevent reaction with the contaminants. Obviously scene this has developed into a major flap for Mobil and a major national situation.

That is a summary of the situation today (22nd of January 2000).........................................

My last e-mail to you included my musing on possible "whys" for this scenario. Was there some other reason for this mass aircraft grounding - other than the obvious stated one of contaminated fuel ??? I was thinking there was some reason re the new Millennium, or something THEY did not want us to see or be able to do ??? Something did not "smell" correct about this scenario ..................

Mobil's reticence to rapidly and completely inform the Australian Government of all aspects of this fuel scenario might, of course, relate purely to a concern about their legal position in any compensation claims, but other considerations might yet apply that could elevate this entire situation into the international chemtrail arena..................... Their delay and withholding of info might have been partly caused by a necessity to consult higher up the multi-national command structure and to develop a suitable spin doctor story line. But this problem kept getting bigger and more serious from day to day.

Most initial Australian press and TV news reports mentioned the word "contaminant" without providing it's organic chemical name. When I first saw that it was deemed to be an excess of EDA introduced into the Avgas I immediately thought it was one of the substances identified by Wil Smith from chemtrail samples !!! However it is NOT since that substance is ethylene di-bromide (EDB). EDB is a quite bit more toxic than EDA - BUT both are toxic. EDA has been awarded an "Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) rating of 1000ppm whereas EDB has an IDLH rating of 100ppm with the provisio that due to it's carcinogenic properties that respirators be worn where EDB concentrations are > than 0.045ppm. Both substances are fairly similar in organic structure - could one be mis-identified as the other ??? Probably not but in a world of skulldruggery it's worth bearing in mind ..............

However we do NOT know yet what the "white powder deposit goo and the clear gel goo's" chemical compositions are. They both bare a passing resemblance to descriptions of substances found on the ground and buildings after passage of chemtrail aircraft - in both North America, Australia and New Zealand, and Europe.
That is white powdery substances and clear gel like "goos" containing cocktails of nasty toxic chemicals and all sorts of pathogens etc.

One wonders if the immediate problem of identification of the second discovered contaminants that faced Professor Trimm was caused by the presence of substances not normally added to Avgas - unlike the "acceptable" EDA which is normally added in much smaller amounts to Avgas than those now alleged to be causing "vegemite goo".

Therefore I feel it necessary to issue a preliminary cautious alert to the World Chemtrail Researchers of this current Australian Avgas scenario. It may well be that the second contaminants will be found to be derivatives of an excess loading of EDA reacting with other parts of the aircraft fuel supply. If so that will be fine.

However one can imagine a scenario where either a refinery Avgas manufacturing process had been sabotaged to alter the Avgas composition such that it included toxic and possibly bacterial, fungal, and viral substances and that this process had unpredicted side effects on free fuel flow causing the current red alert, or that a chemtrail spray manufacturing process was inadvertently diverted into the Avgas refinery run ??? The aircraft owners reported long time nature of this fuel contamination scenario - some two years - and the lack of previous action on complaints suggests that at the very least there has been long term interference in Mobil's Avgas manufacturing process. Two years is about the same time frame as the earliest chemtrail reports ....................Where better to manufacture chemtrail spray fluid than in an oil refinery ??? Judging from the many reports of observed chemtrails the volume of spray fluid required must be astronomical and would require very large manufacturing facilities - at least to mix the several noxious components.

What better way to spray large numbers of people located in population centres than by getting the national fleet of piston engined aircraft to spread the substances in their exhaust - straight out of the standrard fuel ??? If the population is becoming agitated over big aircraft and large scale national chemtrail spraying why not devise some way to put the noxious biochemical substances in ordinary Avgas ??? These aircraft criss cross all population centres - they even pay for the Avgas and therefore help subsidise the operational cost ??? Perhaps Australia was undergoing an experiment that backfired ??? We seem to get used a lot as an experimental laboratory - eg. many big Hollywood films are released here first to judge audience reaction and allow fine tuning before release in the USA and Europe.

Too hot in a piston engine for any organic molecules such as virusii to survive through to the exhaust- I wonder ??? Work by Professor Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe at Cardiff University over several years strongly supports the thesis that all manner of virusii, organic radicals, and even ordinary bugs can survive interstellar flight and hot entry into our atmosphere. Other recent research supports the hypothesis that such building blocks of life are created in "hot" stellar gas clouds. It would appear that these beasties are hard little buggars. EDB apparently survives being burnt in a very hot jet turbine ..................

It is worth your Inter-Sleuths doing some checking of local Avgas (even Jet Fuels ???) and identifying any local fuel contamination problems in your respective nations. Best to be forewarned as they say. Ask around in your piston engine community to see if any underlying series of complaints has NOT been acted upon. After all the first we in OZ knew that this fuel goo problem had been around for some two years was recent loud yelling by some of our private aircraft operators - It was certainly NOT from Mobil or the Australian Government ie. CASA. Get some of your Avgas fuel run through the chemtrail labs - see what comes up. WE are doing just that here - as soon as we can get hold oof relevant samples.

Over the last two years many OZ piston engine aircraft accidents - some fatal - have been typically assigned to Pilot Error - now we are beginning to suspect something else was the cause. Your local scene might well contain clues that when looked at closer indicate fuel contamination as a possibility ??? Anyhow it is worth checking out don't you think - obviously this cannot be left to your local equivalent of CASA which seems to be just an extensional department of Big Oil ???

I apologise in advance and say sorry to you all - if our OZ Avgas scenario yet turns out to have no connection to the chemtrail situation.

I sincerely hope not but my evil mind is beginning to smell a very big rat !!! Rats don't survive exposure to >1000ppm EDA let alone EDB ........

Time will soon tell what this is really all about and if neccessary I will eat crow ........................................
