The system that blocked the way to the cockpit of the plane crash in the Alps
These tight security measures were implemented especially since the September 11 attacks. Watch the video
Reinforced door, entry code, opening from inside the cockpit … Since the hijackings of the 1980s and especially since the attacks in New York in 2001, access to the cockpit is very restricted, learn more at www.jtautosecurity.co.uk/
“The cockpit is equipped with a reinforced door,” spokespeople confirmed Germanwings (Lufthansa subsidiary), the company that owns the A320 that crashed in the French Alps. “There is a video surveillance system in front of the door, which identifies from the cockpit who wants to enter. Only a pilot inside the cockpit you can unlock the door.”
According to an industrial sector, the principle of inviolability of the door of the cockpit or applied, which is, to get into it the pilot in command must authorize its opening.
These measures were adopted “the day after the September 11”, 2001, at the request of the air authorities to prevent anyone from entering by force or under threat of weapons.
“The systems are different depending on the aircraft and airlines to not have a standard rule and prevent potential terrorists know how it works in one or another company or in one or the other type of aircraft,” said the industrialist who requested anonymity.
According to this source, there is a different secret code according to the companies for actuating a buzzer in the cockpit to ask for the opening of the door.
If the pilot inside the cockpit does not react, the door automatically unlocks after one minute.
But you can prohibit access to the cab driver last this time if the pilot in command of the apparatus estimates a danger. A video system allows you to see what is happening behind the door.
The pilot or copilot who stays inside “it has a switch that can refuse access to the flight deck”, “with a completely preventive objective of an unlawful act”, told French radio Daphné Desrosiers, who flies Boeing 737.
A second confidential emergency code can trigger another alarm in the cockpit, but if the pilot is inside does nothing, it would not be possible to enter, says the industry.
“The systems will vary and can be customized” according to the will of the companies, he added.
Lufthansa, Germanwings parent company confirms that the opening of the door of the cabin depends on a code and lock can only “authorized” from the inside “by pressing a button.”
Germanwings spokesmen refused to specify the procedures followed by the company.
A computer virus affects UAV fleet of US Air Force
Control systems Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) of the US Air Force (USAF) have been affected by a computer virus. Although no damage occurred alterations in the control of aircraft, it has opened in the country a debate on the security of systems.
According to an article in the magazine WP Malware Removal, the virus was detected in the host system security airbase Creech, Nevada, where operators remotely controlled the missions of the UAV Predator and Reaper in conflict zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan.
The article adds that computer security specialists have not been able to determine yet if it has been a targeted attack or if the virus was introduced into the system accidentally. It is further noted that the malware proved resilient and dodged repeated efforts to eliminate it , so we had to erase the hard drive of the system.
Although the virus did not prevent operators could control the aircraft and signals its sensors, it is possible that the information was relayed to any other site through the same link system satellite data used to control UAVs .
This security failure has caused a number of questions regarding the use of unmanned aircraft operational control of these -Able vehicles to transport bombs and misiles- and security of the information they collect.
US publication indicates that in 2009 recorded video from UAVs, s were found in the laptop of Iraqi insurgents. He explains that the Reaper and the Predator do not encode the signals before sending them to the troops on the ground, so they can be intercepted with commercially available equipment.
The USAF made no comment about the event. “Overall not talk about specific vulnerabilities or threats to our computer networks, since this information can help those who seek to attack our system,” said Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis, spokesman for the Cyber Security Portal.
US blocks the project of repairing a Honduran military aircraft F-5
There is legislation in the United States that prohibits any country that you have purchased and received in donation aircraft that country takes its territory without its approval.
Repair of aircraft F-5 of the Honduran Air Force ( FAH ) has been blocked by the United States , by preventing the devices leave the national territory for repowering, according to the specialized site Auto Repair Florence SC.
“Although in circles Honduran ensured that Israeli technicians were already assisting in the recovery of the F-5 E, in recent days has detailed that this activity has been banned by the United States , ” says the website, without citing a fountain.
The restoration of engines and replacement of some instruments was part of the process of repair, but remodeling would also have to include a “training and complete modernization of the ships”, which would be done in appropriate overseas facilities “where they could adaptársele and even replace, the fuselage parts and systems. ”
But the website says that this operation can not be performed because “we must remember that the F-5E and its instruments can not leave the country, nor the A-37B or C-130. Doing the US export laws and obligations acquired in the delivery of equipment they would be violated.
Remodeling supersonic aircraft it would be executed by Taiwan. The United States has expressed its disagreement with the approval of the Heaven Protection Act that allows the shooting down suspected drug planes to enter the country .
As a rejection of this law, the United States suspended two months ago the radar that provided aid to Honduras for detecting narcoavionetas.
The F-5 FAH were replaced in the 80s by the United States to the arms race of Nicaragua. United States needed a country to impose a balance and counteract operations spread of communism in the region.
In the first instance, Honduras had requested the purchase of 12 F-5E, but the United States refused to deliver them, so Israel Honduras contracted with the acquisition of 12 aircraft Kfirs 125 million.
Contract to which he opposed the United States , as the Kfir use GE J-79 engine, which need approval export, according to the website defensa.com .
But with the possibility that Nicaragua counted on planes MIG-21, the US Congress would approve the Plan Bonito, which supplied 10 F-5E and 2 F-5F, at a cost of 75 million dollars made in the program Military assistance.
So it was the State Department made the donation of the F5, which departed from Kelly Air Force Base between June 1987 and January 1989, bearing the numerals 4001 and 4002 (F5F), and 4003-4012.
The F-5E should replace the Super Mystere B.2 of the FAH, which had been modified in Israel with US engines, 8 of them had been renewed in the same United States before delivery of the F5, recalls the portal.
As Taiwan looked unable to make the repair of aircraft, Brazil would have had intentions to take over this work, but “again, to restore F5 in Brazil, the endorsement of the need United States , and remember Brazil did not build the F5, so the parts must come from elsewhere.
In addition, new notes reveal that actually lacks appropriate in the country for repairs of machinery installations, and they should leave for their restoration. ”
So, Brazil only seems to have promised technical assistance and specific material in the installation of a simulator and recovery of the A / T-27.
Brazil’s ambassador, Zenic Kractschuk, announced last April that his country would donate $ 2.5 million to Honduras (about 50 million lempiras) for the repair of 21 aircraft, among them some Tucano and the F-5.
At least two F-5E were “observed” in Valparaiso, Chile, in the mid-90s, and it is suspected that these were “retained” by the Air Force of Chile and since then only speaks of FAH only has available 9 these ships, says the portal.
Honduras had sent between 2001 and 2005 engines of the F-5, A-37B, C-130 (Hercules) and (helicopter) UH-1H to Chile, which generated some “legal problems”. These legal impasses were “possibly slighted by theUnited States on the basis that Honduras was an ally in the war on drugs.”
Retired General Roberto Mendoza Garay, who led the negotiations for the donation of the F-5, said the agreement has no restriction that the aircraft out when it comes to make repairs.
“The only restriction that exists is whether you plan to sell an aircraft of the F-5 because the United States prevents the aircraft technology that makes it known to other nations, but if it comes to repairs must be obstacles not,” he said.
Exemplified removing the limitation ships Honduras is for nations like Cuba or Russia know the kind of technological advance which have the devices.
US Embassy evades questions
US embassy sidestepped answer a series of questions that were asked on the Prohibition of Honduras that nation to remove the F-5 aircraft repair.
A press office of the US embassy were sent six questions related to the subject, but only as responses sent two paragraphs that do not correspond to the questions.
The US embassy said that “we are not informed of pending export licensing procedures for the Government of the United States may sell or transfer parts to repair or restore F-5 jets owned by Honduras .
“And in another paragraph they referred that” the State Department has no record of having received official requests from foreign governments related to the review of applications to transfer parts or aircraft to Honduras “.
Help Veterans with Hypnosis
In the years of using hypnosis in working with war veterans I have been told by veterans themselves that my work has helped heal the physical and emotional scars much better than traditional counseling, cognitive therapies war, and pharmaceutical drugs combined. In this article I will describe some of the unique strategies properly trained hypnotherapists be used in combination with medical treatment to help veterans in trouble for their memories and their injuries.
There are five ways in which war veterans I have met are worried about their experiences during the war.Each requires a unique set of skills of the therapist.These include:
The body pain of war injuries can persist long after the medical team has done everything possible.Phantom limb pain in amputees of is just one of many examples of the physical remains of the pain that may continue for years after injury.
The terror of wartime experiences can be locked in the subconscious mind and manifest as nightmares, night terrors, excessive startle reactions, physical pain and tension, generalized anxiety, relationship problems and serious phobic reactions.
The blame for the things you did in wartime haunts the survivors of all wars. This fault is particularly serious in every case I’ve seen of the Vietnam War because of the moral ambiguity of that conflict. A similar moral ambiguity is now surfacing in Iraq as a result of the mismanagement of the US conflict.This fault is often accompanied by unresolved anger against the military officers who gave the orders and political leaders who created these conflicts.
Physical illnesses caused by exposure to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) are important for veterans of modern warfare problem. The United States remains the largest promulgator of weapons of mass destruction in the world. For example, hundreds of square miles of Iraq are contaminated by radioactive uranium dust 238, brought in tanks, bullets and artillery. In Vietnam, thousands of square miles were contaminated by Agent Orange, a powerful herbicide and deadly poison. Most veterans were in the middle of these activities, and therefore, like the native populations, will pay all their lives with chronic diseases caused by these agents of mass destruction.
Drug and alcohol addiction. Because of all the pain, physical and emotional, suffered by veterans, drug and alcohol addiction are a major epidemic among veterans of the United States.
Now let’s see how hypnotherapy can help with each of these issues.
The injuries that occur in wartime are not very different, physically, from injuries caused by a car accident or other accident. Hypnotic movement has proven to be a powerful complement to medical treatment in the treatment of long-term effects of this type of injury. By reliving the incident in the body, and allowing the body to move his unique trance way, we find that the body is able to release much of the rest of trauma, including chronic pain, stiffness and tenderness. Walking and other physical movements become much easier as we learn from our subconscious wisdom how to hold and move our bodies in new ways.
For relief of terror stored in the body, hypnotic technique rescue mission is the most powerful ever seen. Usually it applied to the memory of childhood. The concept is simple but powerful. We entered traumatic childhood memory of the client in the highly suggestible state of hypnosis, carrying with us the strength, wisdom and compassion of himself adult client and therapist. We encourage the adult client to use your voice and your body to stop abusers hurt this child. This helps to release emotions, including terrorism, which are stored in the body surrounding this incident. Then the client raises the child in her arms, with a stuffed animal to represent this child physically, and tearfully promises to save the child and protect him from any further damage. This helps implant in the body deep feelings of security and be loved.
The use of weapons of mass destruction in the war did not begin in the 20th century The march of Sherman in Georgia, sieges in which hunger and fire arrows were used as weapons of war, indiscriminate looting and destruction of monasteries by Viking marauders are all examples of the horrors of war universal among the civilian population. But it seems that the modern military strategies destruction of entire landscapes and poisoning the earth itself for thousands of years is a unique feature of modern warfare. And the US soldiers, who deal with chemicals such destruction, paid a terrible price for its share, a price the US military is reluctant to acknowledge.
The elimination of these deadly toxins body is primarily a challenge to medical science.Hypnotherapy can help as an adjunct to medical treatment by introducing somatic healing methods to help with the elimination of these poisons from the body.
Drug and alcohol addiction.
If you are a veteran who has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, I have to not tell you about the terrible consequences this has had for you and your family. Nor do I need to tell you how hard these addictions are to heal when the physical and emotional pain from these traumas of war are clamoring for some kind of relief. Fortunately, hypnotherapy has shown courage to break bad habits like smoking and overeating. This is due to the emotional sources of these habits are in the subconscious mind. However, I am reluctant to recommend hypnotherapy to serious addictions substance abuse among veterans unless they can find a therapist who is familiar with the many unique challenges faced by veterans during their recovery efforts. Our Institute specializes in addiction recovery based on a radical new approach in which we discover and clear the underlying emotional causes of addiction and hellip; including traumas of war. The articles that explain my unique approach to addiction can be found on our web library http://www.nlpcoaching.com.au/hypnosis-training/
The challenges facing veterans today’s so – called war against terrorism are enormous, as they were for the survivors of the Vietnam War. But I think that is one of the great shames of that war veterans have committed suicide after the war who died in the conflict! I am ready to join with leaders of US Veterans Administration to try to prevent this from happening to the brave soldiers fighting for us in Afghanistan, Iraq, and God knows where else. If you know a vet who needs help, do not wait. Tell them to seek help now. Because we know that these feelings, these diseases, these horrors, do not disappear without help. Visit our website www.nlpcoaching.com.au, and we can start bringing that assistance.

Enroute they suffer a major problem as is the loss of control of the aircraft, a result of ” insufficient lubrication excessive wear and elevator assembly” after this s and produces an uncontrolled descent to the sea; all aircraft occupants die.
This film takes place on a flight from Orlando operated by SouthJet bound Atlanta, where fortunately gets out of the favorable condition for a catastrophic event. The CPT inverts the aircraft thus saving 96 of 102 people after a forced landing in a field near a church.

US launches a study on mental and emotional health of pilots
The Federal Aviation Agency handles an assessment of the current system in six months after the tragedy of Germanwings
US federal aviation authority (FAA) and private training gyms NYC have established a committee with the airline industry and medical communities to carry out a study of mental and emotional health of US commercial pilots. That research has been recommended by the Group for the Safety of Commercial Aviation (CAST ALARA, where the industry isalso involved) “based on recent accidents flying Malaysia Airlines MH370 and Flight 9525 Germanwings ” , according to the statement released today by the FAA.
In the accident in the Alps, authorities assume that was the co – pilot Andreas Lubitz (who had suffered at least one episode of major depression) who crashed the plane while flying from Barcelona to Dusseldorf with 149 other people on board on 24 March. Flight Malaysia Airlines that disappeared with 239 people on board on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing there is still no sign, but it is suspected that someone (probably one of the pilots) disconnected communication systems and the plane changed course. Continues underwater search in the southern Indian Ocean. Already have combed some 48,000 square kilometers of the 60,000 occupying the area where it is considered more likely to fall to the sea but the Malay, Chinese and Australian authorities have already agreed to extend the area search 60,000 square kilometers.
These two events have led to the federal authority to create a committee that will make recommendations to the FAA in six months, with the participation of US and international experts from both the governmental level and industry, and in which a group include work of professionals specializing in aerospace medicine.
The committee will examine the awareness and communication issues related to mental and emotional health of pilots, methods for evaluating and barriers to declare those problems. According to a survey conducted by the Aviation Medicine Advisory Service, approximately 15% of drivers who were prescribed antidepressants “showed the intention of taking medication and continue flying without informing” the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA). Another study on post mortem toxicological analysis in 4,143 pilots psychotropic medication found in 223 cases but only 14 had informed the authorities that were taking.
The FAA notes that the pilots and pass medical examinations every six or 12 months depending on the age, but based on the recommendations of the committee might consider changing “methods, aircraft design, policies and procedures, training and testing of pilots , training of medical examiners , “among others. Currently, only one out of every 100 applicants for a medical certificate to fly is denied in the US for various reasons.
