The 2017 Richard Westgate Memorial
Conclusion and Winner
For over 60 years and in particular, the last 16 years professional aircrew, passengers and writers have tried to communicate the danger of human exposure by toxic oil fumes in confined spaces; however, since the confined spaces are inconveniently jet airliner cabins – there is still, officially, ‘no evidence of any human ill health …’
We were looking for a writer to summarise in an ‘Executive Summary’ this six-decade old health cover-up to help persuade the industry, politicians, scientists and medical profession to introduce known solutions, produce a medical protocol and inform members of the public.
The Executive Summary should help persuade any ordinary member of the public that they too could be injured by exposure to toxic oil fumes in the confined space of any jet airliner (apart from the B787) in flight and that so-called experts exercise their duty to take the ‘urgent action’ called for by a UK Coroner in February 2015.
The conditions were:
To use the key manuscript from April 2016, a US public Court paper: document and to use following resources of evidence:
- RMontmayeur Testimony
- Theresa Villiers Press Release
- Key Documents
- B767 Flight Number 120 Aerotoxic Poisoning
