Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska's 698,473 residents live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. As of 2009, Alaska remains the least densely populated state of the U.S.

At approximately 6:45PM Flight 962 declared an emergency, and shortly afterward made an emergency landing on Anticosti island. The Pilot and two passengers were unharmed. A STRELA 2 missile fired from the ground struck the Twin Otter's right engine, and caused an immediate failure of that engine. The engine later separated from the airframe, and partially removed a large portion of that wing. The flight data recorded a catastrophic loss of flight control, and the aircraft immediately began an uncontrolled rotation.

Aircraft control was partially regained, and an attempted climb out initiated until an engine failure due to oil starvation. The aircraft then descended rapidly, and hit the ground. The airframe is listed as destroyed, and has been recovered for reconstruction. Shortly after the crash, individuals whom identified themselves as members of Humanis First attacked the survivors. The pilot, retrieved a rifle and pistol which were carried in a locked compartment and returned fire. One passenger was struck in the firefight, but listed as in stable condition.

NABB-447 was first registered by PRC Aviation, and was listed as the only Twin Otter certified to operate with retractable landing gear. It featured extensive modifications to increase its short field performance and durability. These modifications are considered a major contributing factor in the outcome of this crash. Pending the final determination of the FAA, a large portion of the recovered airframe will be donated to the Bush Pilot museum in Anchorage Alaska.

"Government Weather Manipulation, Fact or Fact?"

Rose Westen, Investigative Journalist

The important debate on global warming under UN auspices provides but a partial picture of climate change; in addition to the devastating impacts of greenhouse gas emissions on the ozone layer, the World's climate can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated "non-lethal weapons."

No, ladies and gentleman, I'm not talking about the Evolved.

Both the Americans and the Russians have developed capabilities to manipulate the World's climate.

In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP) as part of the ("Star Wars") Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes.

The High-Frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokoma Alaska — jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy — is part of a new generation of sophisticated weaponry under the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory's Space Vehicles Directorate, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating "controlled local modifications of the ionosphere".

Scientist Dr. Nicholas Begich — actively involved in the public campaign against HAARP — describes HAARP as: "A super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere (upper layer of the atmosphere) by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything — living and dead."

Dr. Rosalie Bertell depicts HAARP as "a gigantic heater that can cause major disruption in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet."

From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilising agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions.

While there is no evidence that this deadly technology has been used, surely the United Nations should be addressing the issue of "environmental warfare" alongside the debate on the climatic impacts of greenhouse gases.

Despite a vast body of scientific knowledge, the issue of deliberate climatic manipulations for military use has never been explicitly part of the UN agenda on climate change. Neither the official delegations nor the environmental action groups participating in the Hague Conference on Climate Change (CO6) (November 2000) have raised the broad issue of "weather warfare" or "environmental modification techniques (ENMOD)" as relevant to an understanding of climate change.

The clash between official negotiators, environmentalists and American business lobbies has centered on Washington's outright refusal to abide by commitments on carbon dioxide reduction targets under the 1997 Kyoto protocol. The impacts of military technologies on the World's climate are not an object of discussion or concern. Narrowly confined to greenhouse gases, the ongoing debate on climate change serves Washington's strategic and defense objectives.

Marc Filterman, a former French military officer, outlines several types of "unconventional weapons" using radio frequencies. He refers to "weather war," indicating that the U.S. and the Soviet Union had already "mastered the know-how needed to unleash sudden climate changes (hurricanes, drought) in the early 1980s." These technologies make it "possible to trigger atmospheric disturbances by using Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radar waves."

A simulation study of future defense "scenarios" commissioned for the US Air Force calls for: "US aerospace forces to 'own the weather' by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications." From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications.

Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels. The only question is, has it already started? We'll know when we have a year without a summer, won't we America?
