11 April 2006

The Air Force has withdrawn the following Technical Orders describing emergency rescue procedures for military aerospace craft due to news articles dramatizing information about Air Force One in one of the orders (Segment 9) -- excerpted here on April 9.

The information in the orders is needed not only by military rescue units but emergency responders whereever these aerospace craft and their civilian versions might crash. None of the information is classified:

Cryptome downloaded the collection (about 250MB) on 9 April 2006 and offers it for hosting on a machine more capacious and faster than Cryptome's. Send inquiry to: [Image]

Two segments are offered here: Segment 14 (Zipped PDF, 6.8MB) on UAVs and ammunition, timely for their use in killing suspected terrorists and deployment in the US homeland.

And Segment 17 (Zipped PDF, 7.7MB) for emergency rescue for the Space Shuttle and orbiting vehicles, a crash threat worldwide.
