I tracked tens of thousands of planes flying through NORAD AEW barriers without challenge. They were not flying toward the United States, or they had filed flight plans with clearance.
We had one little old grandmother who ferried small Cessna type planes to the US from Europe. The US Air Force intercepted her often because she was so far off her flight plan that NORAD didn't know who she was, and she was flying toward the US which made her a threat to the United States........
It's all a game of chess played by self centered adolescent bullies. Their favorite toys are 350 million dollar war planes which you and I pay for.
You can call it intuituion, Kung Fu, the Force, inspiration, experience or whatever. The human mind is extremely powerful, and can process learning from all sources into an emotion that is more accurate than base logic.
At the moment of impending certain death, you don't think logically about a solution. Your life will flash before your eyes in rapid succession images. If even the remotest forgotten memory contains a solution to saving your life. Your mind will freeze frame on it in less than a second.
Use that power.
