This Autopilot Tesla Crash That Killed 2, With A Fire That Took 4-Hours To Extinguish, Angers, Disappoints & Saddens Me.

by Anura Guruge


The above is from the U.K. ‘Daily Mail’. Click here for their outstanding coverage.


This is FRIGGING bloody wrong. This makes me very angry, sad & dissapointed.

We are NOT ready for autopilot cars, Tesla or otherwise — & I write this as a HUGE Tesla fan & a very contented & happy, v. long-term Tesla investor. Yes, this crash will send TSLA stock tumbling on Monday. That does NOT bother me much. SMILE. I invested in TSLA years ago. SMILE.

This is WRONG. Bloody WRONG.

We are just NOT there when it comes to autopilot. To plug autopilot is just pure wrong & irresponsible. Yes, ‘they’, government agencies & families should go after Tesla. Sue the pants off them — & again, I speak as one who owns more than just a few shares of Tesla.

This has to END.

We need tighter regulations about autopilot.

I would be so, so, so upset if an autopilot car killed one of my kids. Think about it.

Plus, firefighters being unable to put out the fire caused by the batteries. This is NOT RIGHT. 4-hours to put out a car fire! Jesus wept.

Tiger Woods’ Much-Publicized Crash In A ‘Genesis GV80’ — Good Or Bad For ‘Genesis’?

by Anura Guruge


GV80 SUV driven by Tiger Woods vs smaller, sedan, the G70.


I have owned SUVs from both KIA & Hyundai. Over the last couple of years the occasional Genesis I have seen has always caught my eye.

Then a few months ago Genesis entered my life. I have to get a newer car than the 19-year Jaguar XJ8 that I drive. It has limited safety features & I am starting to worry about its reliability. So, for the long trips I do, I have started renting a car/SUV.

So, in Oct/Nov I started looking around for a car that would meet my needs. Though it broke my heart I ruled out another Jag. I do NOT trust their reliability — especially at the crazy prices they want for a fairly new one.

I toyed with a convertible BUT I also need, at a minimum, FWD — given the snow — & ideally, AWD. FWD/AWD convertibles are a rare commodity. Then, I compromised on a moonroof. Googled for “AWD moonroof” — &, of course, it could NOT be German. The KIA ‘Stinger’ kept on popping up. I heard good things about the Stinger. But, it got me thinking. Hyundai is the higher/more luxurious KIA. So, what did Hyundai have to offer. That is how I discovered the Genesis G70.

So, here is the irony. Just about the time Tiger Woods was involved in his accident, Teischan & I were at a Genesis dealing talking G70s. First time we had been to a Genesis dealership. Kind of uncanny. What a coincidence.

They have moved the plane from the ice to an adjoining car park. It was blocking the main taxiway — so that makes a lot of sense.

I guess they are still waiting for the FAA to finish its investigation — and hopefully to get a new prop. That seems to be the only thing that got damaged. I have to suspect that a prop is not cheap. Plus most likely their insurance will go sky high.

We drove by at 3:45pm hoping to take some pictures of planes to add to those that I took last Sunday.

This was the ONLY plane there was and I knew that it had had a mishap. It was all on its lonesome in the middle of the taxiway and you could clearly see that it was propped up. From past accidents, I assume they have to wait for a FAA (NTSB) inspector to come and check the accident and give the ‘all clear’.

When I got home I saw the ‘Union Leader’ post (above).

We have had more spectacular crashes in the past. See below.

Today, March 3, 64-Years Ago (1953), Was The Beginning Of The End Of The de Havilland Comet (4).

The de Havilland Comet, in particular the Comet 4, was my first love when it came to planes — and it has been a lifelong infatuation starting from when I was about 2. The Comet 4, flown by BOAC, was the first jet plane I ever saw — in Colombo, Ceylon. I never got to fly on it. My adopted parents did. I saw them take-off in one. It used to have this amazingly steep climb — much steeper than today’s jet.

This March 3 crash was the 1st in 26 — which eventually led to it being decommissioned.

OK, so now it is confirmed that the ‘flapron’, at least based on serial numbers, is from MH370 — though obviously, given the scale of this cover-up, the serial numbers could have been restamped.

But, CONTRARY to what I have already heard the likes of CNN saying, this does NOT, in any shape or form, confirm that MH370 crashed into the Indian Ocean.

No, it does not.

The ‘flaperon’ could have been ripped off a perfectly intact MH370 and thrown into the ocean to act as the red herring it is now proving to be.

I am sure you don’t know about this — a VERY FAMOUS Red Herring from WW II to totally outfox the Germans. They even used a body of a person who died from pneumonia so that there would be water in the lungs to make it appear that he drowned. So, this deception would be child’s play.

Yet again the Maldives come up as possibly where MH370 came ‘to rest’ — 18 MONTHS after I, very publicly, pointed out, on March 15, 2014, that ‘they’ should look around the Maldive Islands.

There were Islanders claiming, within the day of MH370 going missing, that they saw a large white plane flying low over the Islands. But, ‘they’ REFUSED to look around the Maldives. Why?

This has continued to bother me. Something BIG happened. And there has been one heck of a COVER UP. At last the relatives of the MH370 passengers are coming to realize that they have been duped, right royally duped, for 18 months.

Here are some key questions YOU need to think about.

1/ Is it in anyway conceivable that the Unites States has NO satellite imagery of the Indian Ocean? That defies credulity. MH370 was in the air for at least 6 hours. The U.S. has some satellite imagery of it. Of that I have NO doubt. What has always puzzled me is WHY people have not been agitating about this. There has to be decent people around who know what kind of imaging capabilities the U.S. possesses and I am sure that the capabilities are extensive. So this begs the question why has the U.S. kept mum for so long and why haven’t world leaders called upon the U.S. to divulge the G-2 that they must possess?

2/ Did a U.S. fighter accidentally shoot down MH370? Happens?

3/ As I have talked about before was MH370 sent on a ‘fishing trip’, as was the ill-fated Korean KAL-007, and things didn’t turn out too well?

4/ I have a fairly good ideas as to why Australia did the cover-up act for as long as they did. Australia has always been a good ally to Western powers. Just think WW I and II. They had to have been asked to provide a smoke screen and they ably did that for months — though they knew that it was hurting their credibility.

The Maldives, in my opinion, holds the key to solving the MH370 mystery. But what I cannot, for the world of me, understand is why people just won’t start looking around the Islands. What are they covering up?
