Civilian Alerts Airmen After Noticing Something Odd Coming from Back of F-15 Jet, Now They're Thanking Him

A man is being recognized for helping to avert a crisis and the possible loss of life after he noticed something wrong with a U.S. Air Force jet.

According to The Drive’s War Zone, on July 13, Matt Smart, an aviation photographer, captured several shots of a F-15E Strike Eagle spewing sparks from its engine while taking off from Royal Air Force Lakenheath in Suffolk, England. RAF Lakenheath is the largest base in England that is operated by the U.S. Air Force, according to the base’s website.

“From what I heard the pilot reported no issues with handling etcetera and stayed out for a while; we were expecting him to return to base, but he didn’t. I understand that someone also phoned the base about it to make them aware,” Smart told The War Zone.

That someone who notified the base is Ian Simpson, a plane spotter and aviation enthusiast, according to the BBC.

Simpson told the outlet that the planes do use an afterburner to take off, in which one can see flames emitted from the jet, but that is typically shut off immediately after the aircraft leaves the runway. The sight was shocking to see, he told the outlet.

The War Zone reported that the plane involved is a part of the 492nd Fighter Squadron, otherwise known as the “Madhatters,” which in turn is a part of the base’s 48th Fighter Wing.

Simpson told the BBC that he called RAF Lakenheath’s switchboard and was transferred to flight control, whom he told about what he saw. Flight control then notified the pilot.

The pilot, Maj. Grant Thompson, told the BBC that he did not know that there was any problem with the aircraft. Only after he was directed to contact the Air Force base was he told that a local civilian had spotted something wrong.

“From our perspective, it was a normal takeoff,” Thompson told the BBC.

After being informed of this, the pilot had one of his wingmen approach the jet, and the wingman noticed that there seemed to be an issue with the nozzles on the right engine, Thompson told the outlet. Upon being notified of this, the pilot brought the jet back to the base safely.

Not long ago, Thompson met with Simpson.

According to the BBC, the pilot thanked him for helping to avert a possible catastrophe. Thompson told the outlet that Simpson’s actions had “100 percent” saved his life and that “his initiative was awesome.”

RAF Lakenheath’s Facebook page posted a video showing Thompson giving Simpson a hat and a couple of Air Force patches, including one he was wearing the day of the incident.

It is great to see an instance where one person’s actions can make such a huge impact on the life of someone else. Simpson’s quick thinking helped potentially save not only an expensive piece of military equipment but also a human life, as Thompson noted.

Through a hobby he enjoys, Simpson was able to quickly observe a problem, note that something was amiss and know exactly who he needed to call in order to get the information to the proper personnel as accurately and efficiently as possible.

It just goes to show that despite current efforts to instill woke progressivism in the armed forces, our military is still the best around.

With our military doing so much for us to keep us safe and free, it is nice to see that even those not in uniform, and even citizens of other countries, have the backs of our servicemen and women in times of need.

From this story it seems clear that our military is still valued and appreciated, not just here at home but around the world.

Graphic Warning: Horrified Crowd Shouts as Parent Shows School's Pedophilia Comics at Board Meeting

Western Journal

Published

on

It appears Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia has been disseminating pedophilic pornography to its students.

As much was revealed by author and former journalist for The Wall Street Journal Asra Nomani, who attended a local Fairfax County School Board meeting Thursday night.

During the meeting, Fairfax High School mother Stacy Langton brought two books up to the podium, along with printouts of some of their pages. The books were “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe.

Langton said she found the books in the high school library, the Robinson Secondary School library and at others across the county.

“The books were available, and we checked them out,” the mother said, according to Nomani’s report.

Nomani recorded the school board meeting, as well as the contents of the books, in a video posted to her Twitter.

Given the incredibly pornographic nature of the images (comic-style pictures showing individuals performing sex acts on one another), we will not embed the video in this story.

If you do wish to see how truly horrific the content is, you can view Nomani’s video here.

The books don’t just show any kind of pornography, however.

They appear to show drawings of child pornography by depicting acts of pedophilia.

One book even includes a “fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male,” Nomani reported.

In “Lawn Boy,” the author describes performing such an act for the first time at the age of 10.

This is the type of material a pedophile would use to groom his victims, making them read it as a way of normalizing explicit sex acts.

And the Fairfax County school district allegedly made these books available to “minors as young as seventh grade, or as young as 12 years old.”

The school board chair, Stella Pekarsky, attempted to defend the inclusion by claiming one of the schools they were found at was made up of “high school students.”

Nomani noted in her report that Robinson Secondary School, where Langton said the books were also available, “includes seventh and eighth graders.”

Either way, it likely doesn’t make parents feel much better knowing that their high school children may have been and possibly continue to be exposed to this horrific content.

According to WRC-TV, Fairfax County Public Schools said it would temporarily remove the books from the library. At a later date, they will be reviewed by a committee of students, staff and parents for a final decision.

For years, conservatives have been saying that the sexual-freedom-movement left’s ultimate goal is to sexualize children and they’ve been called crackpots for saying so.

Well, who are the crackpots now?

Stories continue to break revealing content developed and written by pro-LGBT authors such as this being disseminated to young children.

Minnesota’s Richfield Public Schools district was also caught this week using a sexual education program that has children role-play as sexually active gay teenagers deciding whether or not they want to have sex.

Modern-day leftists have taken over the public school system.

And, if you let them, they’ll use that power to sexualize America’s children with pedophile-esque grooming techniques.

By the official count, President Joe Biden won the Grand Canyon State in November’s general election by 10,457 votes.

The only county he flipped from red to blue to do so was Maricopa, the state’s most populous, encompassing the Phoenix metropolitan area.



Former President Donald Trump carried the county by approximately 44,500 votes in 2016 and Biden won it by 45,100 in 2020.
