Some Images

NOTE: My FRiend with the helpful links, I tried to email you to ask if I could put the links on the blog but the email came back as undeliverable. Please advise. If it’s OK to contact you via email let me know and use an email address that’ll connect me to you.  Otherwise you can just comment here and let me know it’s just for me and not for posting on the blog. Thanks!


To aid in discussion on Free Republic I’ve got some close-ups of images, with brightness and contrast adjusted.

Image 1: Jacob Key inflating his life jacket. Notice his light brown ponytail blowing in his face, contrasting with darker hair:


Image 2: Jacob Key’s shirt. Same photo as above, adjusted to be darker. Notice it is a light-colored shirt with a pattern on it.


Image 3: The cabin before the crash. Notice that the person sitting across from Rosa Key has a light-colored shirt with a pattern:

CabinBeforeCrashImage 4: What Fuentes captioned “All Out” (following this will be close-ups from this photo)


Image 5: Fuddy and Yamamoto by the door


Image 6: Mystery woman with earring showing


Image 7: Mystery Woman with white shirt showing below shoulder. The large area at the front is not a life preserver; it is her arm. This is not Rosa Key, Fuddy, or the 74-year-old woman taken to Honolulu by the Coast Guard – the 3 women on the flight who together with the 6 men made up the total of 9 people that the reports all claimed were in the airplane. This is an unknown person we were not told about. By the process of elimination she must have been the person the Coast Guard flew directly to Queens Hospital even though the NTSB and Coast Guard have not accounted for her having any injuries and news accounts have hidden her existence.


Image 8: What Puentes captioned “Emergency Room”. Note the high cheekbones, shape of closed eyelids, mole and scar on the outside corner of the right eye, and absence of sunburn lines from sunglasses

Emergency Room

Image 9a: Puentes teeth. Dental records are used to identify people. Here is a photo that shows Puentes’ teeth. Note how the bottoms of the top front 3 teeth curve, unlike the teeth shown above.


Image 9b: Puentes sleeping (with his very cute little boy). Note the sunburn lines from this roofer’s sunglasses, the shape of the cheekbone, and the width and shape of his closed eyelids


Image 10: Puentes’ selfie; note the absence of a mole or scar on the outside corner of his right eye.

PuentesRightEyeImage 11:  Puentes captioned one similar to this as “Together”.  This was on a slide show and isn’t distorted as much so I’ll look at close-ups from this one.


Image 12: 70-something-year-old man. This isn’t Kawasaki (the pilot), Hollstein (the man who swam to shore), Yamamoto (Fuddy’s deputy director), Jacob Key, or Puentes. It has to the 70-ish-year-old who was pulled out of the water by Coast Guard rescue swimmer Mark Peer.


Image 13: As an example of the distortion I’ll show a close-up of the pic on Puentes’ facebook page,  of this same man. No matter how I try to adjust brightness and contrast I cannot get the flames off this man’s face in this photo:


Image 14: Yamamoto and Fuddy still together.

YamamotoFuddyImage 15: Puentes captioned this “Swimming Back”. (Note the person very close to shore. A close-up of her will be next.)

SwimmingBackImage 16: The person close to shore. This appears to be a light-skinned person with shoulder-length hair. Is this the mystery woman, with her hair loose? Who is this, and what became of her? Why is she so close to shore – even closer than Puentes who was trying to swim to shore?


It’s been suggested that this is Fuddy, because of the purple jacket and shirt she was wearing and the tinges of purple in the water surrounding this person. BelowFuddybeforecrash is a close-up of the photo that was taken of Fuddy shortly before she got on the plane to leave Kalaupapa that day. Note how the glasses reach all the way to the side of her face. Note the shortness and curliness of the hair. Note the shape of the bangs. There are tinges of purple in the water other places too, although it is more pronounced around her. This may be someone wearing purple, but I do not believe that can be Fuddy’s hair, face, or glasses. The size and shape of the dark portion is more the size and shape of an eye socket without glasses, and there are no bows showing. Mystery Woman 2, above, looks more like a young Ann Dunham. And no, I’m not suggesting that she’s been resurrected. It’s just the more fine-boned, fair-complexioned, smooth and thin-haired look.

Image 17  (the woman whose life jacket Puentes helped her get on. The video is blurry now; my son and I looked at practically every frame, by setting the speed to 1/4th speed, and the video that allows me to print a still image to a file skipped right past her full face, but I was able to catch a piece of it, and here it is):


This isn’t Rosa Key, Loretta Fuddy,  or Mystery Woman 1. Shall we call her Mystery Woman 3? Who knows which of these women is the 74-year-old. It doesn’t really matter. I can show you the faces of what seem to be  5 different women, and we were told there were 3 women on board. If I can see how long her hair is I can find out whether she could be the same person as Mystery Woman 2. If so, at the very least we’ve still got 4 women where there should be 3, and if the “mummy” is the 74-year-old woman then we could have as many as  6 different women where there are supposed to be 3.

    What did I miss? Your narrative is confusing… was there a post prior to your posting the photos? Who were the photos taken by? And the “mystery woman”? I haven’t read anything in the accounts of this incident that mentioned a ‘mystery woman’…. Thanks… I’m just confused.

      Sorry about that. I do a lot of posting at and communications were getting mixed up because I couldn’t point out the photos that I was talking about so I posted the images here. These images are from the photos taken by Ferdinand Puentes, a 39?-year-old roofer who was in Kalaupapa that day to work on St Francis Catholic Church. He was on the plane with a Go-Pro that can handle underwater filming, took video as the events occurred, and then now – a months later – took out certain images from the video and strung them together to make a short video showing what happened, with abc having the video rights.

      I’ve got over 100 pages of saved information from the articles and reports that had come out, and had noted a LOT of discrepancies that are very critical. With these photos we’ve been able to try to identify who is who. From the reports, these were the men on board:

      1. 60-year-old pilot Clyde Kawasaki, buzz cut and wearing white shirt

      2. C Phillip Holstein – 70-ish-year old guy who swam to shore; the rescue people didn’t do anything with him

      3. Jacob Key – guy with dark hair except for a lighter brown ponytail

      4. Keith Yamamoto – fuddy’s deputy director who held hands with her. He has a beard and goattee

      5. Ferdinand Puentes – 39(?) year old construction worker wearing yellow shirt and a US Marshall’s cap he says he bought – the guy taking the photos, including selfies which are possible because the camera has a telescoping arm

      6. An unnamed-as-yet 70ish-year-old guy who Mark Peer lifted out of the water.

      The women known to be on board were

      A. Fuddy – wearing a purple shirt with collar and a purple-flowery jacket

      B. Rosa Key – dark hair in a ponytail, wearing a white shirt with grayish stripes

      C. an as-yet-unnamed 74-year-old woman who was taken to Honolulu; the first person to be picked up out of the water.

      On Free Republic there has been debate as to who the people I’ve included in these images here actually are. We can find that out by the process of elimination.

      The gal in the photo I made really dark so we can see her earring, and really light so we can see her shirt outline…. can’t be either A, B, or C. She is what I call “the mystery woman”, because she is a 10th person who was on that flight. The Coast Guard, NTSB, Makani Kai owner Rchard Schuman, and pilot Clyde Kawasaki have ALL reported that there were a total of 9 people on board – one pilot and 8 passengers. They are all trying to hide the existence of this woman. The question is why.

      I have to run now. I will post more as I can. Somebody earlier had asked me to comment on this crash soon after it happened. I’ve been researching since then, and this thing smells about as bad as anything can. smell.

    From Puentes Facebook – “Every shiver from being cold is hurting. I’ve complained about it earlier and came with a neck brace and a board to strap me down so I don’t rotate my neck or spine. Just to be safe. I was loaded into the helicopter headed to Honolulu. That ride was rough in the beginning, my neck, shoulders and back was hurting from the vibrations of the helicopter. As the time went by the vibration of it soon felt like a massage. So we arrived at the airport in Honolulu waiting to be transferred to the ambulance and headed to Queens Hospital.” Puente does not identify himself as the person in the picture –
    “Emergency Room”
    They did all the test to see if any of my neck or spine were damaged, thankfully it was negative. I survived….

      Exactly. It’s implied but never said. The facial features aren’t right for it to be him. And he obviously didn’t take a picture of himself sleeping.

    There’s a big flaw in the interpretation given about the mystery woman. It cannot be shown that what you’ve called “her arm” is actually that.
    We can’t assume it is not what it should be, namely an inflated life jacket. If it is, then the automatic assumption that the person is a woman goes out the window since it is subconsciously based on our natural assumption that anyone wearing a sleeveless top is a woman, since men don’t wear such tops normally, whereas women do.
    If you look at the face alone, with the assumption that there is no sleeveless arm, then it easily could be a man. And we have no counter argument to that. The face alone is neither masculine or feminine, it is just aged. And the hair doesn’t offer a clue either.

    But Fuddy’s death must be considered to be nothing less that highly suspicious considering the magnitude of importance of the false statements she made about Obama’s non-existent Hawaiian hospital birth certificate. obama–

      It wouldn’t make any difference even if it was a man, because it’s not Kawasaki, Holstein, Jacob Key, Puentes, Yamamoto, or the 70-yr-old guy. It’s still an extra person who was there, that the NTSB, Coast Guard, Makani Kai owner Richard Schuman, and pilot Clyde Kawasaki didn’t want us to know about.

      And actually, if it’s a man it makes even MORE trouble, because there’s what appears to be a woman who was floating in a life jacket even closer to the shore than Puentes (or Holstein, at that point). That would mean we’ve got TWO extra people they didn’t tell us about.

      Either way, it’s the same question: Why did they try to hide the existence of passengers above and beyond the 8 passengers they let us know about?

      It’s pretty certain that it is a sleeveless arm, not only because of the contour of the shirt that we can see in the photo but also because the person sitting in front of Fuddy in the plane had a white sleeveless shirt on. She obviously isn’t Fuddy or Rosa Key so unless that is the 74-year-old woman who was later taken to Honolulu, that’s a 10th occupant of the plane.

      And if “mystery woman” IS the 74-year-old woman, then the woman floating close to shore could not be her and would have to be a 10th person.

      So no matter how you slice it, there had to have been at least 10 people on board the plane – which was hidden by the NTSB, Coast Guard, Schuman, and Kawasaki.

    Butterdezillion, have you seen this other blog, “Obama’s Fake ID”?

      No, I’ve not seen that. I’ll take a look as I’m able. Sorry for the delay in approving this comment. For some reason either WordPress didn’t notify me, or it got intercepted from my inbox. sigh.

    What’s the black rubber thing floating in the water in the 4th photo? It looks like an inflatable raft…Also, in the same phot, how is the man in the photo raised out of the water so high and also the woman in the white tank. She’s not wearing a life jacket so it seems odd that her should is up so high?

      The black thing is a seat cushion that the pilot threw out for people to use as flotation devices. The man who’s up so high is sitting on the wing. The two ladies are holding onto the wing. According to Puentes, the pilot told them not to hold onto the plane. A pilot friend of mine says that was probably so nobody would be sucked underwater by the drag of the plane going under. In the video you can also see the thrashing of the legs as the people were treading water, but holding onto the plane or the cushions allowed them time to figure out how to inflate their life jackets. And it sounds like Holstein ended up showing Jacob and Rosa Key how to inflate theirs, and Puentes helped Mystery Woman 3 figure out hers.
