How do you account for the fact that a small truck turns up, connects one hose to a socket set into the concrete, another hose to the aircraft, and supposedly puts in thousands of litres of fuel.
Either this video is finally telling is the truth, and these trucks are only there for show, OR, you believe that Heathrow and lots of other airfield just happen to be built on top of oilfields.
DECIDE
The bowser carries dehydrated fuel. By mixing it with water from the socket in the concrete, the fuel pumped into the aeroplane is then ready to use.

Don't tell 'em we used dihydrogen monoxide. That will really cause a panic.

I knew this was a scam, one day at an airport I witnessed the honey wagon get rear-ended by the truck supplying the chemtrail fluid, magnetic signs fell off the honey wagon to reveal aviation fuel. I felt threatened by the menacing looks from airport staff.

Anyhow here is the flat earth forum, they are in a mess because of a kid who posted a pic of his camera suspended beneath a helium balloon show the earth's curvature.

Ah, thank you all for explaining the fuel mystery to a simple winemaker; it's all become clear! Speaking of gullible, here is an attorney website I set up to use when baiting Nigerian scammers and I need an attorney to step in and muddy the waters. It's worked a charm.

Thanks, that was meant to elicit comment, and it did.
I was expecting something more along the lines of "who says it's not a waste of time?"

You're all laughing, but . . .

. . . how does a jet engine start?

Along with the "Jet Fuel Hoax" why not dip into the "The Great Plane Hoax". Not only does this chap believe in the Jet Fuel Hoax but also that aircraft are a lot smaller than claimed. I kid you not!

Here he is proving in his own mind that the Boeing 747 is smaller than advertised.

Dip into the utter madness from this other chap!

Well if the battery is too low to start the APU and there is no ground power available we usually have to hand-prob the LP compressor while the FO squirts lighter fluid into the gas generator. It works OK, but there's a knack to it that takes a lot of practice to get right.

That's an easy one. When the tug moves the airliner off the stand, by pushing it backwards it winds up a recoil starter spring on each engine. When the tug releases, the springs spin each engine over and off it goes.

I once knew a strapping lass who worked at LHR, kickstarting the early Boeing’s.

Simply nose over in-flight and ram the air into it. Because of its shape it will compress without the need for fuel, and after that it's all down hill

The man is bonkers. Everybody knows that jet engines are fuelled by the pseudo scientific gloop that goes into cosmetics.

Nonsense, starting a jet engine is like lighting a cigarette, one from another.

You position one tuning engine in front of the other and apply max power. Once you have it running it can compress its own air to start other engines.

For all you disbelievers, you can often see these jet starter trolleys mounted on the front of a 2,500 gallon bowser. These are usually mounted on pairs so can start two engines at once or provide tedious should one fail.

Google B-2 bomber plasma drive, here is an example,
Apparently, the crowd witnessed the B-2 flying in its silent field propulsion mode. In this mode the B-2 shuts off its jet engines and powers itself solely on scooped air. As explained in my 1993 paper The U.S. Antigravity Squadron” which is now updated in Chapter 5 of Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion, the B-2 in flight scoops air into its engine cowlings and this air is there seeded with ions to create a multimillion volt potential which the B-2 uses to power its electrokinetic ion drive. The fields induce asymmetrical electrostatic forces on the B-2 which propel it forward silently. This is an overunity drive: unbalanced forces create thrust, which scoops air, which creates multimillion volt potentials.
Other sites say it never needs refuelling and you can tell when the plasma drive is turned on because it causes a cloud above the wing. (Normal condensation in the low pressure area to most of us).

What I can't work out is why, even if true, none of this makes any noise?

Yes, it's scary stuff, fan be fatal if inhaled or if ingested in large enough quantities. Causes no end of damage to the environment too.

The alternate fuel, if dihydrogen monoxide isn't available, is hydronium hydroxide. Works a treat.
