One of America’s Biggest Racist Mass Murders Has been Disappeared: PSA Flight 1771 (Video, Photos)

Via An Old Friend

N.S.: David Burke.

I didn't know about this atrocity at all, until one of my “sons” (who was ultimately purged by Google) blogged on it, in April 2012.

I was in the country at the time, and would imagine it was not widely reported on, for the usual reason.

Burke was a Jamaican. I don't recall if he was here legally, but he sired seven bastards with an assortment of women, while getting AA jobs, on which he pursued a life of crime (big-time drug courier and small-time thief), and asserted that he was a vic of racism.

After he murdered 42 people, some of his family members defended him.

The media described what Burke did as "revenge," but he had nothing to avenge. Committing an atrocity against people who never wronged you, and calling it "revenge," is a black thing... or a white Uncle Tom and Aunt Jemima thing.


Mass murdering war criminal, David Burke



David Augustus Burke

Classification: Mass murderer


- Fired airline employee

Number of victims: 43 42
Date of murder: December 7, 1987

Date of birth: May 18, 1952

Victims profile: All 43 [sic] people on board the aircraft
Method of murder: Shooting/Caused the plane to crash
Location: In the air, USA
Status: Died in the plane crash

On December 7, 1987, David Burke, a fired airline employee, followed his ex-boss onboard a Pacific Southwest Airline jet with his mind set on revenge.

He shot the man in mid-flight and caused the plane to crash, killing all forty-three people onboard including himself.

David Burke was a man who felt persecuted. He had been fired from his job with Pacific Southwest Airlines for what he thought of as nothing.

Unfortunately for him the airline considered the theft of thousands of dollars from alcohol sales as more than nothing. He was also being investigated because of the belief that he was using his position with the airline to help Cocaine smugglers get into the country more easily.

And now David Burke was gunning for revenge. And he blamed one man for his problems, Raymond Thompson [sp.].

On December 7, 1987, Burke decided it was time to be revenged. He booked himself onto a flight that he knew Raymond Thompson [sp.]would be on. He did little packing for the trip though, all he had was his [sic] .44 Magnum handgun.

As the plane was midway through the trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco, it mysteriously went down, crashing in the San Luis Obispo. When investigators saw the name of Burke on the flight they immediately became suspicious, as Burke was known to be very pissed off at the airline.

During the search of the wreckage they found a .44 Magnum and six spent shells.

These were found in what remained of the cockpit. It seemed that Burke had killed the pilots, along with the flight supervisor Thompson.

Near to this wreckage was found a part of a note to Thompson. It read, "Hi Ray, I think it's rather ironical that we ended up like this. I asked for some leniency for my family, remember? Well I got none, and you will get none."

When the black box flight recorder was discovered there was quite clearly the sounds of gunshots in the background.

It would seem that Burke was very successful in his revenge. After his death a suicide note was found in which Burke said that he was hoping to kill Thompson.

David Augustus Burke (May 18, 1952–December 7, 1987) was an employee of USAir (now US Airways), who had been on unpaid leave following an investigation into his theft of $69 from an airline fund. In a hearing on December 7, 1987 he was dismissed from his job by his supervisor, Raymond Frank Thomson, even after he pleaded for leniency. As he left his office, he was told to have a nice day, for which he replied, "I intend on having a very good day."

Burke then purchased a ticket on PSA Flight 1771, a daily flight from Los Angeles, California to San Francisco, that Ray Thomson, his supervisor, took daily as Thomson lived in San Francisco and worked at Los Angeles International Airport. Using his USAir credentials, Burke was able to bypass security armed with a loaded .44 Magnum pistol. After he got onto the plane at Los Angeles International Airport, he wrote a note on an air-sickness bag. The note read:

Hi Ray. I think it's sort of ironical that we ended up like this. I asked for some leniency for my family. Remember? Well, I got none and you'll get none.

As the plane was cruising at 22,000 feet, Burke left his seat and headed to the lavatory, dropping the note on Thomson's lap. As he exited the lavatory a few moments later, Burke took out his handgun and shot Thomson, as the cockpit voice recorder later confirmed. He then headed for the cockpit door. The recorder then picked up the voice of a female, presumed to be a flight attendant, who told the cockpit crew, "We have a problem." The captain replied, "What kind of problem?" Burke then appeared at the cockpit door and announced, "I'm the problem," simultaneously firing two more shots that probably killed the pilots.

Several seconds later, the cockpit recorder picked up increasing windscreen noise as the airplane pitched down and began to accelerate. This may have been deliberate on the part of Burke, or may have been the result of the dead pilots slumping down onto the control columns. At this point, Burke turned the gun on himself. As the plane descended through 13,000 feet, at a speed of Mach 1.2, it broke apart and crashed in a farmer's field in the Santa Lucia Mountains near the coastal town of Cayucos, California.

Forty-three people, including Burke, were killed in the shootings and plane crash, making David Burke the worst African-American mass murderer in US history.

Previously, Burke had worked for an airline in Rochester, New York, where he was a suspect in a drug-smuggling ring that was bringing cocaine from Jamaica to Rochester via the airline. He was never officially charged.

That plane hit the ground with such force intact bodies for burial were non-existent. Just bits and pieces here and there. Just like 9/11 and WTC.

David Burke was the worst mass murder in the US until Omar Mateen and the Florida gay bar shooting but he is virtually unknown to the US public. Obviously because he was a black man, if he were white he'd have been endlessly referenced and become a household name.

Just watched Anderson Cooper interview Stormy Daniels on 60 minutes. I wasn't expecting it to be much but it turned out to be even more pathetic than I thought. Basically it consisted of Cooper lobbing softball type questions and Ms. Daniels avoiding directly answering them, whereupon Cooper would let it slide and ask another lame question. Cooper did ask what she was getting out of this and she denied any profit motive. She played the woe is me, mean old Trump might sue me. Absurd of course, Trump isn't going to sue her, because yes, of course he banged her so the last thing he will do is make this even bigger. I'm sure this has all been evaluated behind the scenes with her lawyers.

When she told the story of her "evening" with Trump, she pretended she didn't know what was going on when he invited her to his hotel room, she thought it was about a possible spot on celebrity apprentice, if Cooper rolled his eyes the camera didn't show it, I know I did. She then describes how Trump made his move: "I stepped out of the bathroom and he was sitting on the edge of the bed (naked) *spread* out", then she made motions with her legs showing exactly what part of the anatomy Trump was revealing. I can tell you right now, whether or not that's actually true there is a special place in hell for her for burning the thought of that image into my brain.

That story was her bid to get sympathy from the #MeToo movement, every #MeToo'er claims to have "no idea" what's going on when a man invites her to be alone in a room with him for drinks.

She also said she wasn't attracted to Trump at all but had sex with him anyways because....well, she didn't really explain it, she just did it "because"... She never directly said it was for the possible Celeb Apprentice spot but she is a whore who trades sex for money so I guess we can assume she'd be willing to make that deal.

Her denials of possible financial motivation was particularly disingenuous, the only thing that hard hitting investigative "reporter" Anderson Cooper asked was "you might use this publicity to go out on tour and get more business, he seemed oblivious to the fact that she's past the stripper tour age and has a home webpage ( that she sells membership for, videos and anything else that horny guys will buy. Nowadays, it's about hits on your website and selling your product online, she's a porn actress and film producer, she needs to promote herself and her products, check her out in the video, she's now 39 years old, has had a baby, and is just about to hit the big 4-0 in a career when a girl is considered over the hill at age 29. You can see the wrinkles on her face, she's not what she was 10-15 years ago and needs to do something to stay relevant.

I hated to add to her web hit count but I did check out her website and she actually had the nerve to promote her 60 Minute spot on it. And nobody on the 60 Minutes interview team could figure out why she might be motivated to go public with this?
So yeah, Anderson Cooper, maybe you weren't willing to go there or couldn't figure this all out but Stormy Daniels has plenty of financial motivation to go public.

Sure Trump banged her, but so what? I don't care and nobody should, the only problem is he has publicly denied ever having "sex with that woman", he should have just copped to it, apologized to Melanie privately (if she actually cared that is) and dealt with the fallout, I think he could have survived it but lying about it could be fatal.

David Burke has a strong resemblence to Demond Wilson,who Redd Foxx used to call,"a big dummy."Could be his twin.

I saw this on one of those obscure flight disaster documentaries and was shocked why I never heard of this unlike the other high profile crashes like Valuejet or the Sioux City crash. They also had another one kept low profile where another disgruntled black guy who got fired from Fed Ex tried to hijack a DC 10 and crash it into Fed Ex Headquarters, he severely beat the crew with a hammer and they barely managed to hold him down and return to the airport. Had these been more publicized, the 911 incident where the hijackers crashed the planes instead of a long hostage drama as previous hijackings had been may not have seemed so "unimaginable."
