EADS North America completes its board of directors

More "strange feelings" about Airbus...
A big fish in the sky?
380 = 11

Between Dubai and NY only

How about this one being part of grand transportation scheme to cart hundreds of
people off to places far away never to return - they don't have to travel such
distances to achieve it but who knows?
Or maybe it's to transport world's elite while we remain grounded and starving.

EADS is Airbus parent company
European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co - NV
On Bd of Directors sit people ( whole list with explicit details ) with associations
like Hollinger, Halliburton, etc.
At this stage in NWO agenda I doubt super air flights are being designed to promote
mass vacation & travel since we're all supposed to be penniless and destitute anyway -
huddled in tent cities eating GMO foods and
getting sick and dying.

A380 flights will be operational from 8th August 2008 on Emirates flight EK 201 from Dubai to New York JFK International Airport (Sunday/Wednesday/Friday) and on Emirates flight EK 202 from New York JFK International Airport to Dubai (Sunday/Wednesday/Friday), with inaugural flights between New York JFK International Airport and Dubai on 1st and 3rd August 2008
