Abandoned Aeroplane Update

Yesterday I posted an article about an abandoned aeroplane on Bali.
Shortly afterwards somebody on Facebook contacted me with some additional information. In one of the photographs taken by the travel bloggers Katja and Mic, see:, the registration number of the aircraft can be clearly seen on one of the wings; it is "PK-RII". I really should have spotted that myself. My contact, who wishes to remain anonymous, then went to an aviation enthusiasts' website and looked it up on their database; and, lo and behold, the details of the aircraft were there, including its origins, ownership and service record. It is a Boeing 737-200 and is a very old model, being delivered from its factory in Renton USA in 1983. It then was used by the London based Dan-Air and was twice leased to the Israeli Arkia airline. Its final operator was Mandala Airlines, a low-budget carrier based locally in Jakarta, Indonesia. If you look closely you can just see the logo on the tailfin, although it has considerably faded, or been painted over. Mandala was declared bankrupt in December 2014, which could explain how some of its fleet were acquired by private individuals, and PK-RII would have been difficult to sell to another airline because of its age. According to the website "the airframe is preserved in Nusa Dua, Bali". Source: The mystery is solved... partly. I still question how the airliner could have been placed where it is. Another odd factor is a report found on a professional pilots' forum by the same researcher. It talks about a plane crash that happened at Malang airport in Java, Indonesia in 2006. A Mandala Airlines 737-200 skidded off the runway in heavy rain. It doesn't state whether there were any casualties, but the plane was retired from the fleet soon afterwards. What's interesting is that the forum members mention that Mandala is a front for the military, see: Mandala operated more than one 737 so we don't know for sure, but could this be the same aeroplane that somehow found its way onto the bed of a quarry on Bali?

Mysterious Abandoned Aeroplane

I've covered the presence of mysterious objects many times on HPANWO and it turns out that I'm not the only blogger who does so. Katja and Mic are a couple from Slovenia who run the blog We Just Travel and, as its name suggests, they are seasoned globetrotters who have toured the world from Austria to Zimbabwe. One of their entries covers a subject which converges with my own interests. While backpacking on the Indonesian island of Bali they came across a mysterious aeroplane whose presence defies all explanation. They'd heard rumours about it from local people and other holidaymakers and so set out to find it. The aeroplane is a Boeing 737 airliner and it can be found on the Bukit Peninsula in the far south of the island. It is just a mile inland of Pandawa Beach and is difficult to spot from ground level. It sits at the bottom of an oblong quarry on the north side of the Raya Nusa Dua Selatan Road. It is hidden from view by a row of shipping containers and the quarry's owner does not allow access; however it can be easily seen from nearby public land. Katja and Mic have taken many photographs for their website and Instagram page. Source: and: It has become a notable tourist attraction and many of Bali's three million annual visitors are seeking it out for selfies.

There is very little information available about the enigmatic abandoned aircraft. I should point out immediately, before somebody inevitably asks, that this is not the missing Malaysia Airlines MH-370, see: That was a Boeing 777-200ER; this aircraft is a Boeing 737. Interestingly it is the same model used by the "Janet" airline that provides access to Area 51, see:, not that there is definitely a connection. The rumour is that the landowner originally planned to convert the aircraft into an unusual themed restaurant, but the business plan failed. The plane has obviously been at the location for some considerable time. It is covered in cracks and rust, and it has weeds growing around its undercarriage. It is certainly in no condition to fly. The faded paintwork is plain white while the Janet planes have a red cheatline. There is no livery on it and no markings at all except some graffiti. If it ever had a registration number on its tailfin then this has been obliterated. Any positive identification of the aircraft will be difficult unless it can be examined closely. The biggest question is: how did it get there? It cannot possibly have flown because it would have had to land in the quarry which, as you can see from the photographs, is surrounded by steep walls and tall trees on all sides. If it were put there some other way, then how? It would need to be transported by road, probably in several separate pieces, then manoeuvred by a large crane or a helicopter into the quarry and then reassembled. Such a major transportation and construction project would have shut down half the island. The Balinese natives would definitely remember it and would have made records; photographs, documents etc. There is a piece of another aircraft in the quarry too, but this is a far smaller model and it is only a nosecone. Could the mystery involve a more esoteric element perhaps relating to UFO's or secret technology? This must be considered. The situation actually reminds me of the scene in Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind where a ship that vanished in the Bermuda Triangle is left in the middle of the Gobi Desert in central Asia. Did this 737 airliner go missing at all? I've looked at Wikipedia's list of missing aircraft and there is not a single recorded case involving a Boeing 737. UFO's have often been associated with other missing aircraft though; most famously the disappearance of Frederick Valentich, an Australian pilot who was flying a Cessna light aircraft in 1978. He was traversing the sea between the Australian mainland and Tasmania when he reported a UFO to air traffic control just before he vanished. The presence of the UFO could have caused him to crash into the sea and sink without trace; or was he and his aircraft "taken" by the UFO? Was this 737 airliner in Bali "taken" in the same way, but never reported for some reason; perhaps because it was part of the Janet fleet? Alternatively this aircraft could be a large example of an apport, an object that appears out of thin air by supernatural means. This matter is further complicated by the presence of yet another abandoned aircraft on Bali. This is also a Boeing 737 airliner and it sits by the side of a busy road in Kedonganan, just a few miles away from the first plane, in the grounds of a branch of Dunkin' Donuts. This aircraft is far easier to visit, see: There is some mystery surrounding this aeroplane too and it also clearly could not have landed there. If UFO's are behind these unusual aviation reappearances then what are they planning to return next?

Shill Tribunal

A few days ago I had a long telephone conversation with somebody I know in the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory movement, a man I like and respect. Somebody who is doing a lot of good for many people and whom I have endeavoured to support; and I will continue to do so. However the bulk of our discussion was about his dislike for another prominent member of the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory community and his suspicions that this person is a disinformation agent. As I talked on the phone it struck me that the target of his accusations had no recourse. There was no due process by which he could defend himself, nor was there any way I would even hear his side of the story unless I knew him well enough to ask him privately. It is an all too familiar situation, one which is breaking out in one form or another all over our community and I've addressed it many times before, see the background links below. Recent developments have made me more acutely aware and more frustrated, see: and: This problem has even recently entered the realm of the Bigfoot research community, see: We're in a predicament similar to the witch hunts of the Middle Ages, however instead of red hot iron and ducking stools we now have trial-by-hashtag. A person's shillhood is determined by whoever has the loudest voice, or is with the largest YouTube following, simply declaring that they are shills. Sadly a significant proportion of those within the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory community will embrace these indictments without question. These masses will split into a pair of factions, clustering around their chosen ayatollah and so begins another tedious Facebook-like-button war. In the above links you will sense my outrage at this perverse situation. It's time for us to search for a way out if the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory movement is not to implode through infighting, leaving the fortress defenceless against occupation by the omnicidal tyranny of the Illuminati.

It was soon after the phonecall to my friend that the idea came to me: why not establish some kind of tribunal? I posted the idea as a short sentence on Facebook: "Thought experiment: a tribunal to decide who is or is not a SHILL..." and it had a mixed response. It seems nonsensical on the surface; after all how could we petition the existing state legal systems to get involved in the squabbles of "a bunch of tin foil hat-wearing loonies!"? Well, of course we couldn't; we'd have to arrange it independently, but it is feasible. You might be surprised how many independent non-state legal systems there are in the world, ones that are run privately and have zero legislative power, but they function through the willing cooperation of those involved. The majority of these are organized by close-knit religious communities such as the Beth Din network of Jewish courts and the qadi or the councils of the Shari'a, the orthodox law of Islam. The people who cooperate with these courts often do so because they believe their legal system is divine, a gift to humanity from God. However there is no way the ruling of these courts can ever be enforced by the law of the land; with the exception of those in theocracies like Saudi Arabia. We in the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory movement have mixed religious beliefs yet can we not all agree that philosophical justice is something divine even if we don't believe in God? What would happen in this hypothetical situation is that any member of the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory movement who believed that somebody else in the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory movement was a shill, or indeed had committed any other offence against the mission of the movement and the people within it, could present their case to the tribunal in the form of a prosecution. The accused could defend themselves in the same way and a verdict could be reached. It would all be very civilized and formal. The details of how the system would work fairly and effectively will have to be hashed out by a long and difficult process involving many people, and I will not suggest anymore notions at this juncture; I just want to consider the principle of the basic idea. Would it not be preferable to the kind of violent summary condemnation and disorganized and manipulative hysterical screeching that I discuss in the background links above and below? A formal tribunal system would mean that Eddie Boyce or Sacha Christie or Marie K etc could prove their allegations in a calm, professional atmosphere where actually real evidence could be tabled and debated rationally; as opposed to insults, lies and threats being tossed around on social media. I might ask the advice of Kevin Annett because he is the one member of the Truth community who has established a tribunal, albeit for another purpose, see: Of course, I am well aware that what I have suggested is nothing more than what I said it was when I first voiced my idea: a thought experiment. The establishment of our own system of "Truth law" will need everybody in our community to respect it and cooperate with it willingly; and that would be an extraordinarily difficult task. The age of the Truth mob will continue for some time to come. However a need might arise in the immediate post-Illuminati period when we will desperately require some method of preventing total societal collapse, and we in the Truth movement might be expected to take a lead by designing some form of organized judiciary and law enforcement process. It could be a choice between that or lynch mobs on the streets. When that time comes nobody will be quibbling in blog comments boxes about whether Larry Warren is a real UFO witness; our priorities will be about acquiring enough food, water and shelter to stay alive. As I've said before, when the Illuminati are gone, we won't all wake up suddenly one morning as priests of High Atlantis. We've become addicted to the Illuminati, like a drug or an abusive partner. There are no rehab clinics for us to check into, no domestic violence helplines; we'll have to do cold turkey. So why not start experimenting with ways of maintaining law-and-order now with ourselves, within our own community? See it as practice if you like; a trial run for when it will be needed on a larger scale. Think it over.

Hellyer Slams the Illuminati

The Rt. Hon. Paul Hellyer MP is the former Minister of Defence for Canada. He is one of the nation's longest serving officials and before that he was a pilot and an engineer. He is the highest level politician to speak out on the UFO issue; apart from Sir Eric Gairy, the Prime Minister of Grenada, see: At the age of ninety-four he is still very active in the exopolitical community. He regularly tours the conference circuit and is writing a book about UFO's. He first came to prominence when he uttered the classic quote: "UFO's are as real as their aircraft that fly above our heads." Later on he endorsed Dr July Wood's book Where Did the Towers Go? which is a scientific study of the 9/11 attacks, see: He has now come to the same logical conclusion that I and many others have been inevitably led. He was recently featured on the Lazarus Effect podcast, see: On it he explains how the world is run secretly by a malevolent shadow government; Illuminati, Deep State, whatever you want to call it. He brings up many of the same points I do on HPANWO, that there is free energy technology that has been invented and developed, but it is kept secret from the public to protect the power of the elite cabal and because of the petroleum industry's greed. He says that the declassification of this technology could save the world from climate change. Source: I disagree with him there, see:, however there is no doubt that the dependence of civilization on fossil fuels is extremely damaging; it's the principle cause of poverty and environmental destruction. Many wars are fought over fossil fuel resources and it generates enormous social problems. I have not looked at what the skeptic media have to say on this matter, but I could almost write their statements for them. They will say Hellyer is, basically, old and losing his marbles, or words to that effect, see: I can only praise Mr Hellyer enormously for what he has done. For a man in his position to say what he did takes great courage and can do an enormous amount of good.

Missing Skier

Constantinos Filippidis, known to his friends as "Danny", is a keen amateur skier. He travelled all the way from his home in Toronto in Canada to the slopes of Whiteface Mountain in New York USA to have some fun. However during the holiday his friends suddenly found that he had disappeared. They assumed he had accidentally skied off-piste and maybe had an accident, but they couldn't find him. They reported him missing and there followed a massive manhunt involving the mountain rescue services, police, Department of Homeland Security and over six thousand volunteers, including his friends. After six days with no trace of the missing skier, they feared the worst. Then news came through that a man had been found wandering the streets in a confused state wearing winter clothing, a skiing helmet and goggles. He was taken into care and quickly identified as Mr Filippidis. He called his wife and children, and there was much relief all round as the story ended happily... Well, not quite ended. The problem is that Mr Filippidis was not found in the vicinity of Whiteface Mountain. He was found in Sacramento, California; that is almost three thousand miles away. Nobody knows how the missing man travelled so far and what had happened to him during those intervening six days. He is suffering from amnesia and later related only very vague memories of riding in a large lorry and sleeping a lot. He was taken to hospital and given tests, but he shows no signs of having experienced a head injury; his fuzzy state of mind was literally his only symptom. He has never suffered a major head trauma in the past and has no history of mental illness. The mystery remains unsolved; the authorities have stated that the circumstances of Filippidis' disappearance remain under investigation. However, there are several clues that have surfaced indicating that what happened to the skier has similarities to the disappearance of Travis Walton; SecureTeam10 have hot hesitated to point this out, see: Travis Walton is a lumberjack who went missing for five days after encountering an unidentified flying object in 1975, see: Source:

There's no immediate reason to suspect a UFO-related conclusion; no UFO's were seen by the witnesses to the disappearance. However after the elimination of other possibilities more unusual ones must be considered. How did Constantinos Filippidis vanish and reappear in these circumstances? He could not have flown because he had no money or travel documentation on him; these items were all locked in the hotel safe. Even if he had them how would he have reached the nearest airport? His car was where he had left it in the hotel carpark. He could not have walked any great distance at that time of year because the conditions were far too cold. If his ragged memories about being given a lift in a lorry are real then how did he reach the nearest road to be picked up by said lorry, and why? If he had no head injury why would he have ended up in the state of mind that would make him do such a thing? Why did the lorry driver not alert the authorities and take the skier to hospital? Was this some kind of kidnapping? I looked up more information about Whiteface Mountain and did not find that it had any reputation for creepy goings on. Other places do; like Dyatlov Pass for instance, where a number of winter adventurers were killed in mysterious and gruesome circumstances in 1959, see: Whiteface Mountain is renowned as one of the most challenging skiing locations in the world. It was used during the 1980 Winter Olympics. David Paulides is a former policeman who has researched the worrying trend of people going missing in the remote areas of North America, see: Sometimes these people do indeed reappear later with no memory of what happened to them; could Mr Filippidis be one of them? Others are never seen again. There are additional strange factors in this story. Among the mountain rescue officers and volunteers who combed Whiteface Mountain for the missing skier were agents from the Department of Homeland Security. Is finding missing people on skiing holidays normally part of their remit? If not then why were they involved this time? It has also been reported that Mr Filippidis had been given a haircut during his hiatus. He also had a new mobile phone in his pocket. If this is true then for some reason whoever cut his hair put his skiing helmet back on afterwards. Also wouldn't the phone be a useful source of evidence? These days, mobile phones can just about tell the police what you ate for breakfast. We shall see; I may post an update in more information come to light.
