Airline silent on witness’ testimony of mock shootings aboard plane
Testimony of a passenger in the gate of Nov. 17 AirTran Flight 297 suggests the airline may be deliberately leaving out key details of an onboard incident that affirm widespread speculation the flight was the subject of a “dry run” by Muslim terrorists.
Dr. Keith Robinson, a Houston, Texas, chaplain who occasionally works through the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, told WND he is standing by his written account of the incident, which includes testimony that a passenger told him Arabic men sang, danced and pretended to shoot the other passengers before the plane was returned to the gate.
None of these details have been addressed in AirTran’s account of what happened aboard Flight 297.
As WND reported, an e-mailed account of an incident aboard the flight bound from Atlanta to Houston told of a dozen Arabic men causing a disturbance aboard the jet as it taxied to the runway, ultimately prompting pilots to return to the gate.
The author of the e-mail, Tedd Petruna of Houston, created a media and Internet firestorm with his account of what happened on the plane:
“If this wasn’t a dry run, I don’t know what one is. The terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it,” he wrote. “I’m telling this to you because I want you to know. … The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes.”

Since then, AirTran has released a line-by-line rebuttal of Petruna’s email, in which it further asserts that according to flight manifests, Petruna wasn’t even aboard the flight he claimed to witness.
