Baleful Omen in the Italian Capital of Aerospace Arms. Little Girl Killed by a Jet on the Centenary of the Air Force
by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio
It is a truly sinister sign from Heaven that has turned the Air Force’s celebrations for the Centenary of the Blue Army into mourning.
It is a dire omen especially because it takes place in the Aerospace City of Turin a few weeks after the start of the works for the creation of the complex that will be built in Corso Marche thanks to the plant granted in use for 50 years by Leonardo spa, the Italian multinational of defense and armament systems.
A 5-year-old girl, Laura Origliasso, died on Saturday 16 September, due to the crash and subsequent explosion of a Pony 4 aircraft of the “Frecce Tricolori (Tricolor Arrows of Italian military acrobatic team). The plane was headed to Vercelli for a preview show, awaiting the big exhibition organized for Sunday by the Turin Aero Club, where just in Saturday another small aircraft went off the runway in an accident fortunately without consequences (details in Italian version article linked below).
The pilot of the “Freccia Tricolore” managed to save himself by activating the ejection mechanism and landed with a parachute suffering minor injuries.
The car in which the little girl was traveling with her family was overwhelmed by the explosion of the aircraft while it was in transit near the Turin-Caselle airport. The small AM plane crashed to the ground after an engine problem perhaps caused by the so-called “Bird Strike”: an impact with birds.
No other details are yet known. The Ivrea prosecutor’s office has opened a case for air disaster and manslaughter following the accident that occurred Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, the inquiry of the investigators of the Provincial Command of the Carabinieri of Turin continued until late night. The chief prosecutor of Ivrea, Gabriella Viglione, had also arrived on site.
The driver Oscar Del Dò is now under investigation by the judiciary who will have to evaluate his possible criminal responsibilities.
On Sunday, the collection operations continue for the artefacts which were scattered in the impact both in the external and internal parts of the airport. As a consequence of the accident, the Caselle airport was temporarily closed until midnight on Sunday 17 September.
All the airshow appointments scheduled at the Turin aero club for the centenary of the Air Force have been canceled as a sign of condolence: the Frecce Tricolori show was supposed to close on Sunday 17 September. The acrobatic team was supposed to perform a 24-minute show in front of around 100,000 spectators.
Tragedy before the works for the Aerospace City of Turin
But this tragic fatality really places a gloomy emphasis on the Turin maxi-project which involves the creation of the aerospace citadel in Corso Marche in a partnership between universities, companies and a museum, as well as research and test laboratories. The start of work has been set to coincide with the Aerospace and Defense Meetings, which will take place from 28 to 30 November at the Oval Lingotto.
This initiative is located within the Piedmont Aerospace District (DAP in Italian acronymous) which sees a synergy between public bodies (Piedmont Region, City of Turin, Finpiemonte), industrial associations (Api, Unione Industriali) and aerospace companies among which the names of Leonardo and Thales, two industries of the so-called Arms Lobby which are also controlled by the infamous American fund BlackRock.
The main priority of the DAP association (non-profit organization) is “Strengthening the aerospace supply chain”. From this it follows that in the coming years the city of Mole and the Hinterland will not only be a research center but will also become a theater of experimentation for new aircraft. There are already 7 industries operating in the sector in Caselle Torinese, including the LDV division (Leonardo Aircraft Division).
The disturbing aspect of this implementation of research and production in the aeronautical field must be seen in its aims: the increase in the production of warplanes.
It also integrates with the projects launched by Leonardo in Turin as part of the development of artificial intelligence in military technology in partnership with Bill Gates’ Microsoft Corporation.
This synergy is part of NATO’s DIANA project which has chosen the Piedmontese capital as a startup incubator for the innovation of military strategies, especially in the aeronautical field.
All this is connected in a clear and reprehensible way with the war in Ukraine because the secretary general of the Atlantic Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, who contributed to developing the CEPA plan for the militarization of Eastern Europe and repeatedly provoked Russia with the promise of the annexation of Ukraine and Georgia to NATO, he was appointed to the top of NATO after having been Gates’ right-hand man as director of the Gavi Alliance for global immunization with vaccines.
“NATO lies” about the conflict at the Vilnius summit were publicly denounced by former Italian ambassador Alberto Bradanini.
Not only. Norges Bank, of which Stoltenberg will become president at the end of his mandate (extended until September 2024), is one of the main investors in the Weapons Lobby and holds significant shareholdings in both Leonardo and Thales, two of the main war industries in the Aerospace District Piedmontese.
This is why this tragic accident on the eve of the centenary of the Air Force should be read not only as a terrible and unpredictable misfortune but as a warning towards that war strategy which unfortunately sees Italy now on the front line on the NATO front in Ukraine and not only.
