FAA Issues No-Fly Zone Over Exxon Pipeline Spill

Activist Post

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) moved quickly to block the media from seeing the full extent of the damage caused by the Exxon oil pipeline spill in Arkansas.

After some local news stations managed to get some breaking news images from a flyover of the area, the FAA issued a "Notice to Airmen" or NOTAM to stop all air traffic from the area.

Here is the official announcement:
FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS MAYFLOWER, AR. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. PURSUANT TO 14 CFR SECTION 91.137(A)(1) TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS ARE IN EFFECT FOR OIL PIPELINE RUPTURE ONLY RELIEF AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS UNDER DIRECTION OF TOM SUHRHOFF ARE AUTHORIZED IN THE AIRSPACE AT AND BELOW 1000 FEET AGL WITHIN A 5 NAUTICAL MILE RADIUS OF 345855N/0922642W OR THE LITTLE ROCK /LIT/ VORTAC 319 DEGREE RADIAL AT 22.4 NAUTICAL MILES.
Here is the map of the area provided by the FAA:

Since the Sandy Hook flyover footage was so heavily scrutinized, the media and the FAA are beginning to make it a habit of blocking the public from seeing what's really going on on the ground in real time from disasters.

During the Lone Star Community College shooting in January, the media was told to cut the live aerial feeds of the event.  Now we have the FAA issuing this NOTAM to prevent the public from seeing what's really happening in Arkansas.



The nonstop news coverage of the Gulf Oil Spill must have caused too much bad press for BP, and Exxon appears to want to stave off any negative press.

Would the FAA be complicit in an Exxon cover-up?

This is the way it is.
Americans are fine by not knowing.
Any ways it is just a small part of Arkansas,pne of most backward and corrupt states in Union.
Always had been always will be.
Hell they'll figure something out and in a rightt to work state knowing how to be a good bubba still passes for intelligence just look at it as a job opportunity.
Just spread out the black stuff on the streets and on bright side less lawns to mow Gov and Exxon tell em to clean up own property and shut up.

A oil spill & nuke plant kills a man & 2 reactors are on a black out from the MSM & NRC, it's the people of Arkansas, it's the corporations who have the money to keep the public in the dark! What the gov has buried under the MTS of Arkansas is what the fine people of the state should be asking, just as in at the new air port in Denver CO., to many truckers have let the cat out of the bag of what really is going on!

All these oil spills, nuke plants in a total mess should get the publics attention, but when the MSM is owned by the crooks running the world, what do you expect? The truth! www.enenews.com & www.fukishmafacts.com you should follow daily folks also!

It's sad our world has turned into shit by the so call experts & lawyers!

THEY isolate each incident. BUT add them together not just here but all of earth.

"at or below 1,000 feet" is hardly keeping newscopters from the site ...
Sorry folks, this is about safety not a news blackout.

Interesting questions coming up lately of legal rights to aerial surveillance. Complicated issue. As-is the question of the public's "right to know" about a crime that in some ways affects us all (like the Aurora shooting, and Sandy Hook). Where should the privacy of the investigation and trial end and the public's "right to know" begin? Do we threaten our OWN potential privacy rights by taking a position that "the public" has a right to know and film everything? It seems like a slippery slope.

While I agree about MSM being owned by the corporations, I also agree with the above comment, that being restricted to fly at or above 1,000 feet does not pertain to a news blackout, but rather it is about safety. I used to fly airplanes and 1000 feet is the rule above populated areas. You can fly as low as 500 feet in unpopulated rural areas. This is truly about safety. With today's cameras, one can easily record the scene from 1000 feet without compromising the integrity of the video footage. It's because there will be so many clean-up people around there, (making it a 'populated area'), that the 1000 foot rule was imposed.

It is about safety. I have seen plenty of pics coming from people who live there. Nobody is keeping it off facebook, for God's sake. Look around. Think for a minute. If a jet went down in the middle of an oil slick. It would be an inferno of Biblical proportions. Good sense on the part of the government on this one. Who knew they had any at all.
