This is from a buddy at the FAA so it is for real.
Air Tran Flight Canceled!
Sent by a former airline pilot who I have known for years.
As Received "as is" via email....
I, Gene Hackemack, received this email from my good friend Tedd Petruna, a diver at the NBL facility [Neutral Buoyancy Lab], at NASA Houston, whom I used to work with. Tedd happened to be on this same Flt. 297, Atlanta to Houston.

PS...can you imagine, our own news media now are so politically correct that they are afraid to report that these were all muslims...unbelievable. Thank God for people like Tedd Petruna.
: Subject: Long story short....
One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff. It was on Fox.

This was NOT what happened.

I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire. 2 sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if she was not there.

The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. In the back of the plane at this time, 2 younger Muslims, one in the back aisle, and one in front of him, window, began to show footage of a porno they had taped the night before, and were very loud about it. Now..they are only permitted to do this prior to Jihad. If a Muslim man goes into a strip club, he has to view the woman via mirror with his back to her. (don't ask me..I don't make the rules, but I've studied) The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have electronic devices on at this time. To which one of the men said "shut up infidel dog!" She went to take the camcorder and he began to scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all 11 of them got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I had had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size say "I got your back." I grabbed the man who had been on the phone by the arm and said "you WILL go sit down or you Will be thrown from this plane!" As I "led" him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed out with him. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, "You WILL do the same!" He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he was going to go. As I escorted him forward the plane doors open and 3 TSA agents and 4 police officers entered. Me and my new Texan friend were told to cease and desist for they had this under control. I was happy to oblige actually. There was some commotion in the back, but within moments, all 11 were escorted off the plane. They then unloaded their luggage.

We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happen, when suddenly, the door open again and on walked all 11!! Stone faced, eyes front and robotic (the only way I can describe it). The stewardess from the back had been in tears and when she saw this, she was having NONE of it! Being that I was up front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agent there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston. The captain and co-captain came out and told the agent "we and our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. 5 minutes later, the cabin door opened again and a whole new crew walked on.

Again...this is where I had had enough!!! I got up and asked "What the hell is going on!?!?" I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for the delay and I would be home shortly. I said "I'm getting off this plane". The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. (now I'm mad!) I said "I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that door, or I'm going through that door with you under my arm!! But I am going through that door!!" And I heard a voice behind me say "so am I". Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the same. Within 2 minutes, I was walking off that plane where I was met with more agents who asked me to write a statement. I had 5 hours to kill at this point so why the hell not. Due to the amount of people who got off that flight, it was cancelled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6pm. I got here at 12:30am.

Look up the date. Flight #297 Atlanta to Houston.

If this wasn't a dry run, I don't know what one is. The terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it.

I'm telling this to you because I want you to know..
The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes..

This supposed "dry run" has already been debunked by Snopes, TorF, and even by Air Tran itself!


This whole account is a heavy dose of fiction, probably written to make someone feel macho.

Think hard, wingnuts: if this was a "dry run", wasn't it a pretty awful dry run? Is this how a real terrorist would "practice", by causing a disturbance and drawing attention to themselves before the plane was even off the ground? Not to mention the fact that they were potentially blowing their cover and might be put on a no-fly list as a result. Think people, think.

Per AirTran (and copied on Snopes), Theodore "Tedd" Petruna wasn't on this AirTran flight. He wasn't listed on the passenger manifest. He was on a different AirTran flight that day.

When you have to outright lie to make your wingnut case....

Booman drops the bomb on this.


Seriously, these people need help.

I only read a few of the initial paragraphs & could see where it was leading. It's beyond stupid to think that "terrorists" would behave this way: dressed in robes, watching porn (for gawd's sake), speaking loudly on cell phones in Arabic while the plane's taking off.

What is worth our attention (IMHO) is that RWFers would buy into this kind of bunk. Note how brainwashed they are, that they would unquestioningly think that this is factual and real.

And no, I never, ever expect any of these RWFers to go check Snopes or whatever. They will just say that Snopes has been invaded by eeeevul liebruls, etc.

Pathetic, really.

Potato Head said...

Yes, the fact that wingnuts can't see the facial absurdity of the story is what is really amazing. Why would putative terrorists think that "testing" airline security involves playing porn videos and being disruptive? Shit, you can get arrested by Federal marshals just for smoking a fucking cigarette! And the tactical takeaway from this exercise would be what, again?

The stupidity of a large segment of the American population (which includes my rightwing Dad) is frankly scary to contemplate.

I love the "true facts," like Muslim terrorists can go to strip clubs, but only the night before their suicide mission, and even then they have to sit backward and use a mirror!

Snarla said...

Oh yeah, and "Shut up, infidel dog!" will be my new catchphrase. Too funny.

Kevin said...


The guy wasn't on the plane. Wasn't even in the airport at that time.

Some people will buy anything, just as long as it supports what they'd like to believe.


Kevin said...

FOX News carried this hogwash too.

I guess they only fact check when they don't like a story.

Petruna sounds like a full-fledged member of the 101st Chairborne, FAP Squadron.

Hey Kevin: I don't think Fake Noise is in the business of "real news." They got a court ruling, which said that they didn't ever have to tell the truth ever, if they didn't feel like it. I don't think they ever refer to pesky facts. Why would they do that? It's so much easier to just lie and make up stuff. Clearly their audience enjoys their hourly outrage over absoeffenlutely nothing.
