CIA Plane in Big Aussie-American Heroin Bust: FNQ connection
The far North Quensland town of Mareeba has been connected to CIA owned international drug cartels. Mareeba airport, just a stones throw from Cairns International airport, was built by the United States military during World War 2.
Over the past five years strange aircraft, often landing in the middle of the night, some of which, according to airline experts, belong to Air America, a CIA-owned airline, are used expressly for ferrying drugs and guns around the world.
Last year an unidentified aircraft, the American-registered ‘mystery plane’ seen at Mareeba airport was a Merlin III twin–engine turbo-prop ( tail number N224HR).
Locals who saw the landing were advised to “…forget it landed…”
Then what do you know? This aircraft is busted at the small airport at Illawarra, 60 klm south of Sydney.
The discovery of an American-registered plane delivering drugs at an Australian airport heralded, according to Australian law enforcement, a “sophisticated drug network” that had begun using the tiny Illawarra Regional Airport, 60 miles south of Sydney, to import guns and drugs.
The purchase in the U.S. of the Merlin III, and the plane’s subsequent two-month long saga on its journey “home” to Australia, an Australian law enforcement official told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph, were actions undertaken at the behest of a “major international crime syndicate.”
Newly-obtained FAA registration records reveal that the American “mystery plane” busted in July with 35 kilos of heroin at an airport outside Sydney, Australia was a CIA plane. At least, it had been when it rolled off the assembly line 40 years earlier, courtesy of a CIA deal with the U.S. Forest Service. And the CIA never sells off its planes.
And who can forget Jardine-Matheson?
They’re a big bank now. Changed their name to HBSC. The guys who last year admitted to laundering some $700 billion of dirty money for drug cartels, then paid the biggest fine in the history of fine-paying, in order to stay out of prison.
