On 9 April 2009, his class 1 medical certificate was not revalidated by the Lufthansa aeromedical centre due to depression and the taking of medication to treat it.

This limitation requires that the aeromedical examiner (AME) contact the licence issuing authority before proceeding with a medical evaluation relating to any extension or renewal of the medical certificate. It may relate to the medical history that the AME must be informed of before undertaking an assessment.

Space Fantasy #32: Mars Perchlorates Kills Bacteria Bacillus Subtilis.....

Mars surface 'more uninhabitable' than thought: study Hopes of finding life on Mars, at least on the surface, were dealt a blow Thursday by a study revealing that salt minerals present on the Red Planet kill bacteria. In lab tests on Earth, the compounds known as perchlorates killed cultures of the bacteria Bacillus subtilis, a basic life form, a research duo from the University of Edinburgh's School of Physics and Astronomy reported. Perchlorates, stable at room temperature, become active at high heat. Mars is very cold. In the new study, Jennifer Wadsworth and Charles Cockell showed the compound can also be activated by UV light, without heat, in conditions mimicking those on the martian surface. It killed bacteria within minutes, said the team, implying the planet was "more uninhabitable than previously thought." Source>>>>>

DOOM Averted! American Airlines Employee Stops Fuel Truck From Plowing Into A Plane Filled With People!

Airline employee stops rolling truck, averts disaster  An American Airlines employee is being called a hero for his fast thinking. Surveillance video from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport shows a man jump into a rolling fueling truck. He stepped on the brakes to avoid a crash and likely a huge explosion. The serious accident was avoided, thanks to longtime American Airlines employee Darren Carbone. He was helping guide a plane back away from the gate at Concourse C when he noticed the runaway truck headed towards other planes. According to the airline, the truck was rolling backwards on the tarmac Tuesday without a driver until Carbone literally sprang into action. “A fuel truck is basically a bomb. It's got a tank in the back with thousands of gallons of gasoline, very volatile,” Source

"You're Gonna Die Up There" JULY 2017: Pilot Talks About 'Weather Phenomenon,' Then Plane Drops Off Radar, Killing 6

The darksome atmosphere is as a prison to the demons until the judgment day. They carry fire of hell with them wherever they go. The devils besought the Lord not to cast them into the abyss; for they asked for this, deeming it to be a punishment for them to be cast out of a place where they could injure men. Hence it is stated,They besought Him that He would not expel them out of the country. St Thomas Aquinas

“In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

The demons of the air together with the Antichrist will perform great wonders on earth and in the atmosphere, and men will become more and more perverted. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept.…
