I’d like to start of by clarifying that I did not uncover this information. Another Redditor did and shared it this morning, but due to reasons of their own decided to delete their post. I think this information is worth examining anyway, so I’m re-sharing it. I have DMed with the original Redditor who uncovered it, and if they’d like to come forward and take credit for it, I’m happy to oblige.
Okay, so by now many of us have seen the RegicideAnon videos with a trio of UAPs being rather untoward with an airliner. Is it real? Is it fake? I don’t know and this post doesn’t have the answer to that question, nor will I be examining those veracity (or lack thereof) of those videos. Instead I’m going to offer up another smaller piece of the puzzle that maybe will lead to something, or maybe not, but here it is anyway:
So the Wayback Archive of of the first RegicideAnon video on YouTube contains the following information:
Published on May 19, 2014
Received: 12 March 2014
Posted: 19 May 2014
Now initially, most people took these at face value and referenced 12 March 2014 as the upload date of the video, which is significant because it was four days after the disappearance of MH370. However, as /u/candypettitte pointed out in their post “The Airliner Video was NOT published four days after the disappearance of MH370” only the “Published on May 19, 2014” line is indicative of anything. That’s the date RegicideAnon published this video on YouTube and the other lines are just part of the video description. RegicideAnon could have wrote anything there, and just because that’s what the wrote in the description, there’s no proof that the video existed on the internet prior to 19 May 2014, right?
Except there may have been a Redditor referencing the video on 15 March 2014, or one week after the disappearance of MH370.
Speedbird777 is a Redditor who created their account on 9 March 2014, two days after the disappearance of MH370. They only posted four times from March 10 to March 15 (two submissions and two comments), mainly to the subreddit /r/findflightMH370 which has been inactive since 2019 and it’s only moderator has their account suspended. /r/findflightMH370 was created 10 March 2014. None of that is unusual, the disappearance of MH370 was a huge global news event and I’m sure a lot of new accounts were created at that time by people looking to discuss it. However, Speedbird’s limited contribution to the MH370 discussion seems worth looking at in light of the resurfacing of the RegicideAnon videos.
Speedbird777’s first post was, on 11 March 2014 GMT, a submission titled “Flight Track Log ✈ MH370 ✈ 08-Mar-2014 ✈ WMKK / KUL” which was a link to the Flight Track Log for MH370 on uk.FlightAware.com (incidentally, Speed Bird is the call sign for British Airways). Again, nothing unusual here but Speedbird777 says something really interesting in the comments in a reply to a deleted user who comments:
There were loads of reports of UFO activity in the area in the past few weeks, it was passed off as natural phenomena. 18 separate reports on different days, of a silver dome the size of a 4 football pitches cannot be classed as “atmospheric variances”.
Other than a comment helping someone look at MH370 tracking data on /r/explainlikeimfive the only other post the Speedbird777 made on Reddit was the following self-post on /r/findflightMH370 on 15 March 2014 GMT:
Oh my GOD that video is incredible!!!!
Now admittedly, there’s no indication what the exact video Speedbird777 is referring to here. A user named BadgerGecko asks for a source, is downvoted, and none is given. But given the reaction from Speedbird777, I think there’s a fair to good chance the video he saw is the one and the same and this certainly would seem to lend credence to RecicideAnon’s assertation that the video was received 12 March 2014. Could Speedbird777 possibly even be the creator and/or disseminator of the video?
Anyway, this proves nothing and likely doesn’t get us any closer to uncovering the truth of the videos, but I thought it was a fun look at some of the UAP discussion surrounding MH370 when the disappearance occurred and maybe it offers some support to the idea that the video existed on the internet prior to 19 May 2014. Maybe /u/BadgerGecko can comment on whether he saw it at the time? Perhaps Speedbird777 DMed him?
