Vegas Flight Records Reveal Well-Planned Air Assault And Elaborate Getaway Extraction All Possible

What if the entire Oct. 1 operation was conducted via an advanced air assault? Flight records show it could be likely

Preface: I want to make clear that I am in no way saying that this scenario for sure happened. I am merely reporting on data which I’ve found after scouring hundreds of hours of information, flight data records, and video footage captured between the hours of 9:40 and 10:30 p.m. on the night of October 1 (i.e. If it happened this is how it occurred.)

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — Flight records, aircraft transponder data, and video footage all reveal that covert air assault and EXFIL operations may have transpired on the night of the massacre.

Flight records indicate that three Airbus EC130 helicopters registered to Mustang Leasing LLC (N-numbers N854MH, N848MH, and N858MH) departed from the vicinity of 6075 S Las Vegas Blvd between 9:40 and 9:41 p.m. on Oct. 1.

The choppers are affiliated with Mustang Helicopters, Maverick Helicopters, and Maverick Aviation Group, all of which are owned by a 68-year-old Army veteran named Greggory Rochna. In fact, according to Vegas INC, Rochna owns 47 Eco-Satr-130s, which “are among the best touring helicopters on the planet,” costing “$3.2 million” each. They use a quiet tail-rotor design which helps to keep unwanted noise down from the aircraft’s prop-wash.

After their departure, the three choppers flew to the north through the city in a tight line formation before circling back to the south where they abruptly stopped and hovered directly over the Mandalay Bay/Delano property 7-minutes later. In fact, N848MH hovered directly over a portion of Mandalay Bay’s rooftop just to the west of the Events Center Bar for several minutes (between 9:48 and 9:50 p.m.) before all three aircraft transponders went dark right at 9:50 p.m., just 15-minutes before the shooting started.

To give you a better feel for where the helicopter was (along with 2 others) I have provided a map of the MGM-owned property.

The venue which hosted the Route 91 Music Festival is located just 824 yards (2,705 ft.) away from where the three choppers were positioned in a solid hover before the transponders lost signal or were manually turned off.

The following image illustrates the vantage point the three helicopters would have had over the venue from the locations in which they were hovering at the time.

In theory, the choppers would each have had to offload two assailants (a total of six). Two of which would have taken sniper positions right away (one on the lower north roof under Stephen Paddock’s room and one on the northeast corner of the Convention Center roof) while the other element of four stormed the casino floor, making their entrance through the parking garage.

The three choppers (N854MH, N848MH, and N858MH) would have had to hold there positions or stay in close proximity to the Mandalay Bay for the next twenty minutes until all of the ended at 10:15 p.m. That’s when the two snipers would have made their EXFIL off the roof via chopper and returned to base with all three craft approximately three-minutes later around 10:18 – 10:19 p.m.

Keep in mind, the four-man element would still be on the property at this point where they would be traversing their way up to the rooftop of the Delano, inside the hotel’s interior, using a series of inner-connected hallways in order to make a planned EXFIL via another helicopter from the southwest rooftop of the Delano Hotel at 10:24 p.m., just four minutes before the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department helicopter (N911WY) arrived in the vicinity for the first time since shots were fired at crowd goers who attending the Route 91 Harvest Music festival. To reiterate, the helicopter that arrived over the rooftop of the Delano and hovered for over one-minute was a separate helicopter than the first three.

The image below shows the location the mystery aircraft first appeared while heading due north toward the Delano Hotel.

Even more disturbing is the fact that the aircraft’s transponder was transmitting the call sign “SWA4119” which is registered to a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-7H4 passenger jet with the tail number “WN4119.”

According to the data, “SWA4119” was originally scheduled to depart Tulsa (TUL) at 14:10 and arrive in Las Vegas (LAS) at 15:00 but was somehow delayed for over 7-hours giving “SWA4119” a new arrival time of 22:22 (10:22 p.m. PDT) which doesn’t make sense because the craft was headed north and was too close to the airport to be aligned with any of the runaways.

You see, the aircraft that was displaying “SWA4119” between 10:21 and 10:22 p.m., which emerged on radar for the first time at 10:21, absolutely can not be a passenger jet because the actual flight data confirms that the aircraft slowed to a stop then changed its direction abruptly to a due north heading before proceeding to hover over the Delano in a very specific spot for approximately one-minute (i.e. the craft in question was, in fact, a helicopter because jets simply cannot hover or change speed and direction with such intensity.) This means that the operators of the craft were intentionally transmitting a fictitious call sign before going dark (invisible) from radar altogether.

To top it off, the Oct. 1 flight data for Southwest Airlines “WN4119” is showing inconsistencies.

The following screen-capture of the the aircraft’s flight history shows that “SWA4119” landed at 10:22 p.m. at (LAS) despite the fact that a transponder was pinging from the rooftop of the Delano at that exact same time.

Not to mention, the tail number listed for that exact flight is “N227WN” and not “WN4119” as the transponder was emitting in real-time suggesting that the plane on the tarmac that “landed” was “N227WN” which is a different aircraft entirely.

The following image shows the position of where the aircraft was when it was in a solid hover for one-minute.

After EXFIL, the helicopter masked as “SWA4119” departed to the west where it looks like it met up with a pack of six other choppers, all of which are registered to Mustang Leasing LLC.

The six choppers were flying southward at the time in a perfect line formation. All six had departed from the vicinity of 6075 S Las Vegas Blvd just minutes before at 10:12 p.m., again, as if it was all part of a highly thought out plan.

All six choppers headed north through the city before looping back around to the south. That’s when the aircraft that was masking itself as “SWA4119” (transponder off at the time) made a covert merger and inserted itself directly into the line of six other choppers as the aircraft’s transponder started to display its actual call sign “N845MH.” Now there was a line of seven Mustang Leasing LLC helicopters and they were all headed back to base where they all landed a few moments later.

Shockingly, video footage captured on a GoPro camera during the shooting coincides with flight data and reveals what appears to be multiple muzzle flashes coming from several different elevations in the sky between the Mandalay Bay and the Delano Hotel.

Flashes can be seen emitting from the exact spot the Mustang Leasing LLC choppers N854MH, N848MH, and N858MH were captured on radar hovering just 10-minutes prior to the shooting when their transponders all simultaneously stopped transmitting.

I also must point out that nothing should be in the airspace beyond the two buildings at that time and that there is no structure beyond the buildings which would warrant shooting from that elevation (i.e. the flashes are occurring in free air.)

Could the choppers have been lurking back there for the entire 20-minutes?

At 6:47 – 7:00 in the video, what appears to be muzzle flashes can be seen at different levels in the sky. (Screenshot via Arch Angel Studios/YouTube)

As a caveat, at 6:52 into the video a shot can be seen coming from room 32-134 which is the room directly adjacent to Paddock’s suite. Astonishingly, the flash looks the same as the flashes in the sky. It appears that the shooter in room 32-134 is firing at the same time as the flashes in the sky can be seen!

Again, I want to make it clear that this is all just a theory which the data seems to support. If true, it made for one hell of an operation.

Could it have been part of a well-orchestrated heist or was the massacre just a blatant attack full-scale attack? You be the judge.
