Sydney’s Barangaroo precinct was ground zero for the simulated passenger plane crash — to test and train the response to a disaster.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports:
“The training exercises come amid suggestions that NSW Police are not equipped to improve their response to a major terrorism event, should another Lindt Cafe-style incident occur. The inquest into the Lindt Cafe siege has heard that, among a litany of errors, a purpose-built negotiators truck is still missing and counter-terrorism training for negotiators has been cut back.”
It is interesting to note that a number of major domestic or international terror attacks have involved simultaneous “training drills.” As zerohedge.com quotes in “How To Spot a False Flag Event”:
“This list includes, but is not limited to, the infamous NORAD drills of 9/11, the 7/7 London Bombings, the 2011 Norway shooting, the Aurora shooting, Sandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon.”
Australia’s worst aviation disaster was the Bakers Creek air crash. On 14 June 1943, the US Army Air Forces Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress aircraft crashed at Bakers Creek, Queensland, killing 40 of the 41 military service personnel on board.
