Jim Root Posted May 23, 2005 Share Posted May 23, 2005 Over the past several months Antti Hynonen and I have been collecting and digesting information about Oswald's trip from London to Helsinki. Without "tipping our hand" to the surprizing information that has been uncovered I thought I would start with a small tidbit and ask for your imput. Let me begin by saying that Chris Mills has agreed to allow us to use his "Flight of Fancy" as a starting point for expanding the fine research that he did in 1993. http://www.manuscriptservice.com/DPQ/mills~1.htm Antti was able to obtain flight information from the source (in Helsinki) on Finn Air operations in 1959 as opposed to the information that Chris used from London (now Heathrow) Airport archivists. One of the many facts that we have uncovered is that if Oswald had traveled to Paris on October 8, 1959 instead of going to England on an overnight ferry (think about this, a FRUGAL Oswald spending a great deal of money when he did not need to if he knew where he was going) his airline ticket would have cost about the same to fly into Helsinki (based upon 1959 exchange rates about $4 difference in price). Perhaps even more surpizing is the fact that he would have had three choices of flights from Paris to Helsinki. Here is the kicker.......The three choices would have him arriving on the same exact planes that he could have arrived on by leaving London: The 17:05 Flight, the 17:35 Flight or the 23:35 Flight. Why then did Oswald need to go to London, spending additional precious limited funds, to get to Helsinki when there was a less expensive way to accomplish the exact same goal?
