9.11 investigation

9-11: UAL-93 info from letsroll911.com promote LANGLEY AFB's "Happy Hooligans" F16 shot it

make what you want of it, as they say, this story is still 'breaking'


...the Happy Hooligans, a unit of 3 F-16 aircraft, were ordered to head toward Pennsylvania. At 0957 they spotted their target; After confirmation orders were received, A one Major Jim Gibney fired two sidewinder missiles at the aircraft and destroyed it in mid flight at precisely 0958; He was awarded a medal from the Governor one year later for his heroic actions. As well as Decorated by Congress on 9/13/2001. The Happy Hooligans were previously stationed in North Dakota, and moved to Langley Air Force base some months before 911 occured on a "Temporary assignment."

Please do not harrass this man or bother him for doing what his CO & ultimately George Bush, ordered him to do. Major Rick Gibney has no reason to feel guilty nor regret following orders. The fault lies with his superiors, and a one, certain President George Bush who planned and engineered 911.
LetsRoll911.org Article - Flight 93 Shot Down

LetsRoll911.org has discovered that Fight 93 was defintately shot down.

LetsRoll has discovered the name of the pilot as well as all other pertinent information regarding this incident;

"At precisely 0938 hours, an alarm was sounded at Langely Air Force Base, and those whom were on call, drinking coffee, were scrambled.

They, the Happy Hooligans, a unit of 3 F-16 aircraft, were ordered to head toward Pennsylvania. At 0957 they spotted their target; After confirmation orders were received, A one Major Rick Gibney fired two sidewinder missiles at the aircraft and destroyed it in mid flight at precisely 0958;

He was awarded a medal from the Governor one year later for his heroic actions. As well as Decorated by Congress on 9/13/2001. The Happy Hooligans were previously stationed in North Dakota, and moved to Langley Air Force base some months before 911 occured on a "Temporary assignment."

Major Rick Gibney did as he was ordered and did nothing criminal. He was merely following orders, of which he had no choice. Please do not harrass this man or bother him for doing what his CO & ultimately George Bush, ordered him to do. Major Rick Gibney has no reason to feel guilty nor regret following orders. The fault lies with his superiors, and a one, certain President George Bush who planned and engineered 911. Please do not heap any kind of abuse onto this man, a crack fighter pilot, one of the best in our nation, for doing what he was trained and ordered to do. He is a good man, honest and full of Integrity as well as unlimited discipline. He is a patriot, and was lied to and deceived.

He had no way to know that this plane wasn't a 'hostile.' Nor could he have. The fault lies with his superiors, and President George 'Dubya' Bush.

Flight 93 has now been forever solved by truth, and honest reporting and investigating, from letsroll911.org!

Major Rick Gibney, please do not read this as anything but the truth that the world deserves to know as true history. You played a part, but it was your superiors who deceived both you and everyone else regarding Flight 93. I didn't relish printing your name, as your innocent of any evil doing. yet it's history, and truth, and the world deserves to know.

And your safer now that this truth is out there, than if it was not.

But the world would appreciatte an honest reply and statement from you on this issue, but only when your able and ready.

The source of this information Mr. Gibney was very careful to point out your high quality of charachter and lack of malice or malfeasance in these issues. Your integrity is no way harmed by these revelations, as you were ignorant of the total picture of what was happening that day, and following orders as you were trained to do in an emergency.

I apologize for having to print your name, but felt it neccessary for both the truth to come forward, and your own safety.

Major Rick Gibney..."Lets Roll"

Time to let the truth out and the perps hang. If this means a coup then so be it. As long as the coup is meant to restore the constitution which was shredded like toilet paper on a bums ass by George W. Bush.

"Lets Roll Major Rick!"

Sincerely,
Phil Jayhan


Correction: I made an error and used the name of Jim Gibney instead of Rick Gibney. My apologies for the error. Lets Roll Major Rick! 4.27.2004 4:23am

Wheres the Beef??? 29.Jun.2004 06:46

Dick Chenney

If you realy have this kind of information it would be earth shattering. So where is your proof for that matter where is your anything other than an Indymedia conspiracy theory?

PS

George Bush is a fighter pilot so he probably flew one of the other three fighters planes. It is easy to make an accusation but bull shit conspiracy theories dont do anyone any good.

Major Rick? 30.Jun.2004 05:31

Rubby

I guess you could also call him "Major Dick" then. Quite appropriate if your accusations are true. If this bastard really did shoot that plane down and then not come forward with that information while the government and media continued to lie to the American people, then he's culpable to treason. Anybody who was involved and is not blowing the whistle as loudly as possible at this point is an accomplice and should be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

Is the Rick Gibney Flight 93 Story a Hoax?

Alex Jones' Prison Planet | June 29 2004

Yesterday we were able to confirm that Colonel Don de Grand-pre claims he spoke face to face with Maj. Rick Gibney and Gibney told him that he was the pilot who shot down Flight 93.

We are still investigating this matter in trying to uncover the truth while not going out on a limb to say whether this is accurate or not.

However, an article from a September 11 website states that Gibney was not scrambled to track Flight 93, but that he was flying into New York. The article states,

Derrig, Maj. Dean Eckman and Capt. Craig Borgstrom scrambled from Langley Air Force Base, Va., to protect the nation's capital. Maj. Rick Gibney took off from Fargo to fly the New York emergency management director from Montana to New York.

We have now uncovered footage of the award ceremony in which Gibney is honored for his activities on September 11. Would Gibney be rewarded simply for flying an official to New York?

On the other hand, the official FAA Registry does list Gibney's certificate as 'Airline Transport Pilot.'

Another interesting aspect to this story is that the website that first reported it has connections to FEMA and other 'Homeland Security' style organizations, click here for that article.

We are attempting to contact Mr. Gibney. If anyone can help us get in touch, please E mail us at  prisonplanetweb@hotmail.com.

Colonel Don de Grand-pre first raised awareness to the fate of Flight 93 during an interview on The Alex Jones Show back in February.

The Colonel's original comments from the interview back in February appear below.

The full interview can be read by clicking here.

Caller : And was United Airlines Flight 93 shot down in Pennsylvania by a U.S. or NATO pilot and was that what was supposed to hit the Pentagon?

DGP: No, that was hit at 10:00 hours. It was taken out by the North Dakota Air Guard. I know the pilot who fired those two missiles to take down 93.

Caller : Was it shot down because the airline pilots actually regained control of the hijacked auto-pilot or was that to replace the unmanned drone that was shot down?

DGP: No, it was the aircraft, you see, had totally unconscious people on board. There were no hijackers. At 9:35, the Happy Hooligans, the Air Guard flying the F-16s were ordered to take that plane out. And they took it out from 9:35 to 10:00.

Caller : Were there any refueling jets involved in that operation?

AJ: Hold on a second, John. The question is why would they deviate from the plan of flying it into the Capitol? Why did the globalists decide to go ahead and shoot the plane down?

DGP: There had been an adjustment to the controls, probably by an AWACs aircraft flying overhead, again, remote control. And it was on a course for either the Capitol or the White House. And at this stage, you don't know. The Happy Hooligans came in and took care of it.

AJ: Do you think they were not following orders?

DGP: Who, the Happy Hooligans?

AJ: Well, yeah, you've got Cheney running around, we've got the stand down taking place.

DGP: Well, this is correct, but you see the Adj. General of the State of North Dakota gave the command to take it out. And, by God, they took it out. And I've got the full story in the book.

AJ: That's a good thing they did that. You said you talked to the pilot. Think about this folks. Imagine what Bush would have gotten if he would have had that plane fly into the Capitol? Imagine the police state we would be in right now.

John: Was there any refueling tankers used by the North Dakota Air Guard and what tanker wing was used?

DGP: I don't know about the aircraft itself. I don't know about refueling. They came off base in Langley and it was just a few minutes out from Langley to the intercept over Pennsylvania. It was just a matter of minutes.

AJ: Colonel, how did you get in touch with the pilot who shot the plane down?

DGP: It turned out to be an old friend of mine from the Air National Guard and this is my home state of North Dakota. And I attended the ceremony in North Dakota and watched the Adj. General [garbled] the pilot being decorated a year later for this activity that happened on 911 with Flight 93.

Colonel, before we take these four final calls, go over that a little bit slower for folks. That's a big deal. You talked to the pilot, a friend of yours, who shot down Flight 93 that was going for the Capitol or the White House. And go over that for folks.

DGP: Okay, quick rundown. They were out of Hector Field, Fargo, North Dakota. A bunch, this 119 Fighter Group and they are called the Happy Hooligans. They are probably the best interceptors that we have in the country. They were moved to Langley Air Force Base from Hector Field down to Southern Virginia. And when the klaxon horn went off at 9:35, those two pilots put down their coffee and shot into their aircraft and took off. They didn't know where they were going initially but by 10:00 hours, they had rendezvoused over Southern Pennsylvania. That's about 250 miles in just a matter of minutes and engaged 93 with two side-winder missiles. And they accomplished their objective. Now Hector Field, I use to fly out of Hector Field some time ago. I know most of those pilots. I could name names. I know the National Guard Adj. General. And they were decorated about a year later and I have the full write up of that story in my book.

--------------------------------------------------

We will continue to track this story as we attempt to confirm its absolute accuracy.

More On The F-16 Happy Hooligans And Flt 93
By E. Gothenberg of Stockholm, Sweden
6-27-2004

Dear Mr. Rense,

Regarding the article you posted: Pilot Who Shot Down Flt 93 With Sidewinders Identified?  http://www.letsroll911.org/articles/flight93shotdown.html

There is no way to verify that Rick Gibney of The Happy Hooligans really shot Flt 93, but, after reading the congressional Records from Sep 19 2001, one may conclude that one of The Happy Hooligans pilots did shoot down Flt 93:  http://www.nhalliance.org/neh/hearings/2001/bcole.confirm.pdf .

I found it amazing that the safty and security of the United States on 911 was at the hands of amateur pilots who fly just one weekend per month as a hobby. This make it very easy for the NWO to use them, if they wish, for any unethical purposes as these innocent pilots are 'out of the loop' and will never comprehend the total picture.

I therefor searched Google to find additional information regarding The Happy Hooligans. I attach it below.

I hope it can help.

Regards,
E. Gothenberg Stockholm


THE HAPPY HOOLIGANS

1. Major Rick Gibney is the third from the left in this photo:  http://www.f16viper.org/edlund4.jpg

2. Since he is the old, could he possibly also be the 1976 NFL player: 310 Colts Rick Gibney DT Georgia Tech
 http://www.hickoksports.com/history/nfldraft1976.shtml - 57k

3. The Happy Hooligans do exist:  http://www.happyhooligans.com/ "Looking for current, qualified F-16 Pilots to work one weekend per month."

4. The Happy Hooligans did participate in the 911 events:  http://conrad.senate.gov/issues/statements/defense/defense_stmt_010913.html
THE HAPPY HOOLIGANS (Senate - September 13, 2001) [Page: S9388] --- Mr. CONRAD. Madam President, when the Pentagon was attacked and F-16s were scrambled from Langley Air Force Base, those fighter planes were the [weekend warriors of the] 119th Fighter Wing of the North Dakota National Guard. I didn't know that myself when I saw those planes flying. I can tell you, they made an awful lot of us feel much more secure when we saw F-16 fighter planes in the air protecting Washington, DC. So imagine my surprise and my pride when I learned that those were North Dakota National Guard fighter planes.

This is the group we affectionately call in North Dakota the Happy Hooligans.

The Happy Hooligans are America's best. [sic, hardly] The Happy Hooligans have been called the best fighter unit on the planet Earth. [ha ha] They have been called that because the Happy Hooligans have been recognized in competition after competition as America's best. Not only have they won the competitions--the William Tell award, for example--as the best active fighting unit in the United States, but they have not only been in competition with other National Guard units but the regular Air Force. The Happy Hooligans come out No. 1.

So, not only are we incredibly proud in North Dakota that a key part of this Nation's defense at this time of tragedy and attack was from North Dakota but that we sent our very best and that our very best are America's very best.


5. The Happy Hooligans history:  http://www.happyhooligans.com/home.htm


6. After reading Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota comments regarding 911 and The Happy Hooligans, one may conclude that he knows that one of these Hooligans actually shot down Flt 93 :

'UAL93' Witnesses Saw Only Saab military jet? or others? 30.Jun.2004 19:48

What exactly was UAL93 on its flight to DC? Was it a substitute that HAD TO BE destroyed and covered up as being late?

first read this:
911 : The Cleveland Airport Mystery
 http://inn.globalfreepress.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=323

next,

Flight 93 Crash Witnesses Saw Only A Saab 105 SK60 series military jet?

From Jon Carlson
 carlson.jon@cheqnet.ne
6-28-4


Photos of the Saab 105 SK60 series military jet.

 http://user.tninet.se/~xpz458v/SAAB105-SK60_english.htm
 http://www.canit.se/~griffon/aviation/text/60saab105.html
 http://www.canit.se/~griffon/aviation/img/saab/

[one theory] This plane fits the description given by eye witnesses. It is a 2 seater allowing one person to pilot in tight formation right above the airliner and another person to remote-control the other plane. The plane remote-controlled to Australia had a second plane monitoring it apparently capable of adjusting directions if the original computer flight plan failed. Obviously a jet not normally flown in this country would be hard to identify. It has a top speed of over 1000 mph and is extremely maneuverable. The Austria Air Force flies them as does Sweden.

Interesting that the Flight 93 Mirror article mentions a small WHITE jet that several witnesses saw but the FBI claims to be a 'business jet" or never existed.  http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/allnews/page.cfm?objectid=
12192317&method=full&siteid=50143

Flight 93 article on jet http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/allnews/page.cfm?
objectid=12192317&method=full&siteid=50143

 http://www.thepowerhour.com/postings-three/flight-93-shot-down.htm

"There's no way I imagined this plane - it was so low it was virtually on top of me. It was white with no markings but it was definitely military, it just had that look.

"It had two rear engines, a big fin on the back like a spoiler on the back of a car and with two upright fins at the side. I haven't found one like it on the internet. It definitely wasn't one of those executive jets. The FBI came and talked to me and said there was no plane around.

FURTHER verification that some kind of military aircraft was operating in the area is scientifically irrefutable.

At 9.22am a sonic boom - caused by supersonic flight - was picked up by an earthquake monitoring station in southern Pennsylvania, 60 miles from Shanksville.

 http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=30682

"As soon as we looked up, we saw a mid-sized jet flying low and fast," Decker told the Record. "It appeared to make a loop or part of a circle, and then it turned fast and headed out. " Describing the plane as a Lear-jet type, with engines mounted near the tail and painted white with no identifying markings, Decker said, "If you were here to see it, you'd have no doubt. It was a jet plane, and it had to be flying real close when that 757 went down."


 http://www.rense.com/general54/flight93crashwitnesses.htm


II.

[another theory] A Warthog


III.

[another theory, or another issue rather, that is unaddressed above: The evidence of a Warren Buffet NetJet that was actually Court testimony regarding UAL93 and the Massaoui show trial of fascist U.S. Government--though made SECRET.

example: Associated Press: An official for NetJets, a company that sells shares in private business aircraft, confirmed that the plane tracking Flight 93 belonged to the company.  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cia-drugs/message/46303

quoted from the memes.org article: "The second wealthiest billionaire in the UNITED STATES has allot of explaining to do. Executive jets do not track commercial aircraft. How can it be that NORAD does not make a 911 showing but this private jet does? Clearly Buffet's MITRE has the technological know how to pull off remote piloting of the 911 planes as well as the capability of shooting down FLIGHT 93."

There were MITRE personnel on UAL175 as well.

Nice of all of you out there to ruin a good man's name. Ricky Gibney wasn't even around Pennsylvania on 9/11. So stop all of the bullshit and move onto something more important, like maybe sending a troop who's at war a nice letter to let them know we support them.

By the way, maybe you should also get the spelling of the base right. LANGLEY!!!!!!!!!!!

Flying once a month! 11.Apr.2007 16:04

True American

What a joke!!! Just because the unit is an Air National Guard unit, certainly does not make them "amateur" at flying. You cannot be a pilot and be just an "amateur" as you uninformed hypocrits call it. Get your facts straight. There all all kinds of Air National Guard pilots that fly on a daily basis...so I don't think that "amateur" is the correct word...I think excellent and experienced is better. Moron!
