Just a forum procedural question, but wouldn't an edited update say it had been edited, or do Moderator-Edited updates not provide us that benefit?

I take it the red amendment is from a moderator who has confirmed that Jake and Cbox were in the same building, possibly being the same person?

This is actually getting better and better. Cbox, please give us some more wisdom.........

The red text is from PPRuNe Towers, super-mod. And, yes, he is quite obviously saying that the posts were coming from the same computer.

Which was apparent even to us dullards.

In light of recent events in the French Alps involving an A320 I would imagine any pilot suffering from severe delusions of grandeur would now be very high up on the authorities people of interest list.

Talk about shooting your own foot off.

First I want to thank the original post on this forum! Next Jake McGoldrick ihas been in the USA working the helicopter industry. I fell victim to his scam and lost much money. The reason I am posting is for anyone who thinks this guy is normal. If he has asked you for work or to go in business with you......Run and contact the FBI. He claims to have worked for Eric Prince as a para military contractor. He claims experience in Bell 412, 212 and other well told lies. I want to make this very clear...He is a liar! He has made his way across the USA. I am shocked how many in this industry have told me he has contacted them with a scam. The document at the opening post is true! It was never overturned and he obtained his license in the USA fraudulently. I felt it important for all out there to know this guy is dangerous in my opinion to our industry. Please make contact with your local law enforcement or state police if you see him. If he is still in this country he needs to be removed!

Amazing story but quite sad if true - almost feel sorry for him if the cause of his delusions were his experiences in the military, but that's cancelled out pretty quickly by the danger he poses to anyone flying with him

Hello, Could you about Jake Mc Goldrick? I do not see how to reply.

Despite what he may tell you, Jake was never employed by any defense contractor to conduct any PMC operations.

. Do you think Jake would intentionally sabatoage a flight and crash? We lost our friend Thursday while taking Jake up on a test flight in my brothers plane. Our friend was a accomplished pilot, flight instructor and military helicopter pilot. Jake told him that he had a Gulf Stream on order. The plane was a Huskey and I do not know details yet but we are suspicious. Please , if you know anything that would give insight , please email. Thank you

Sad for passenger and families but there is some irony

From one of the links (KUTV)

"You know there is a pilot community that is suffering a huge loss from this," Lohrke said.
Having read all 26 Posts below I think some losses were suffered before this tragedy

I don't think he would have intentionally cause a crash.

He was engaged and due to get married in March 2018.

To quote the thread title Beware Jake McGoldrick, and at the risk of appearing sarcastic, I guess we don't have to beware any more.
