On the morning of December 12, 1985, at 0645 local time (0515 EST),
Arrow Airlines flight 1285, a DC-8-63 charter carrying 248 passengers and a crew of eight, crashed
just after takeoff form Gander International Airport, Gander, Newfoundland, Canada.
All on board perished as a result of the impact or the post-crash fire,
which, fed by the contents of the stricken aircraft’s full fuel tanks,
took local fire fighters nearly four hours to bring under control and approximately
thirty hours to completely extinguish.
THIS WAS A SIGNIFICANT WORLD EVENT!
BUT OUR POLITICIANS ARE QUITE SKILLED AT THE ART OF DECEPTION!
HOW FAR UNDER THE RUG HAS THE TRUTH BEEN SWEPT?
