.....nope, it's just a plane. Flight AWE808 to be exact. A daily flight the departs from Pheonix Sky Harbor international airport every day at roughly 5:45 pm west coast time. A lot of hype has been made in the news the last couple days over what looked like a missile launch over the pacific ocean, captured on camera by a news helicopter. since the story broke, all manner of theories have popped up, everything from an accidental launch to some claiming a Chinese sub launched off our coast as a show of force. But a little checking goes a long way. A web cam on Newport Beach will capture this "launch" every evening and a check of flight routs will show the regular path of this particular flight. Yet strangely enough, the news is ignoring all this and still perpetuating it as a "mystery". I guess the mundane just isn't news. An image montage showing the flight information and a screen shot from the web cam can be found here: http://www.bahneman.com/liem/tmp/it_was_awe808.png The actual webcam can be found here, tune in every day at 4:45 west coast time to watch the "launch" : http://www.surfline.com/surf-report/36th-st-newport-southern-california_4226/

well it isn't. it is boring. so i think i'll stick with the wildest theory i can find thankyou very much. or invent my own. which will involve an invasion of giant, flying carrots shooting across the pacific.

That's what I was thinking it was too. The Chinese are well known (among konspiricy insiders who think they know) for their arsenal of carrot missiles.

I was just looking a little while ago to see if they ever figured it. I didn't find anything that mentioned what you did, just the "mystery" part.

Sad isn't it? I have emailed the screen shot from the webcam and the flight info to every major news outlet. too bad, any one of them missed a chance to make the rest look like fools.

The first thing I thought when I saw this was, what is this supposed to distract us from? Obviously it could not be a missile of ours and China would not fire one off this close without a target, nor would Russia. Thanks for solving part of the mystery.

I heard about that this afternoon when I was watching Pardon the Interruption on ESPN. Kind of funny.
