Israeli and the US took part in operation ‘Blue Flag’, an air-force combat drill taking place in the Arava desert at the same time Metrojet Flight 9268 went down.
Startling new revelations show that both the US and Israel were conducting war games in the Arava desert when Flight 9268 dropped off the radar, shortly before breaking up in mid-air and crashing in the Sinai, Egypt.
As reported by The Times Of Israel, in their headline, Blue Skies: Israeli, American, Greek, and Polish air personnel square off against a fictional enemy state in two-week drill (Oct. 30, 2015):
“Air forces from around the world have gathered deep in the Arava desert in the south of Israel for the past week and a half to take part in the largest aerial exercise in the history of the Israeli Air Force.
The “Blue Flag” exercise, which is continuing through November 3, pits the Israeli Air Force, the United States Air Force, Greece’s Hellenic Air Force and the Polish Air Force against a fictional enemy state, the captain in charge of all IAF exercises told The Times of Israel Thursday night.”
American Everyman reports:
Why is this significant? Well, just take a look at two maps.
Are you kidding me? The Israelis and US running an air-force combat drill in the same general area of the downed Russian passenger plane?
