EXCLUSIVE: Private company offering “contract air support” using military jet fighters located in Lakeland, FL where live air-to-air missile was just found

Originally authored by Mike Adams at Natural News and discussed by he and I in the latest interview. Here’s more on the air-to-air missile uncovered in Florida and the private military company which had it in its possession. This was researched by my own guys and its all verified through their own public statements. All I can say at this point is that it reminds me of the shady Colonel and the antagonist Senator from the movie Shooter.

“There are no sides. There’s no Sunnis and Shiites. There’s no Democrats and Republicans. There’s only HAVES and HAVE-NOTS.” -NCS

As you may recall, a live radar-guided, air-to-air missile was found last week on the tarmac of the Lakeland, Florida airport. We analyzed the serial number and data details of this missile and found that it was a “Matra R530F” missile, made by French weapons contractors and designed to be used on French-made mirage fighter jets. (See photos below.)

As we pointed out in a previous article, this missile had a live warhead and was equipped with propulsion fuel. It merely needed to be attached to a Mirage fighter jet and it could be launched against any aircraft flying over the skies of America. We speculated that even Air Force One could be theoretically brought down by this missile.

Other media reports have confirmed that the Matra R530F missile was shipped into the United States via Amazon Air, which is an air cargo operation owned by Amazon, which is of course largely owned by Jeff Bezos who also owns the Washington Post, a CIA-run propaganda disinfo publisher that has conspired with the deep state to try to overthrow the President of the United States of America (Donald Trump). So when we “speculate” about a missile possibly being used to shoot down Air Force One, it really doesn’t involve much speculation at all. Deep state operatives have already said they plan to remove Trump from office by force, and treasonous traitor Jeff Bezos would no doubt be more than happy to provide the missiles.

This particular missile was acquired from Jordanian’s military and shipped into the United States, no doubt illegally. The entire coverage of this missile has been hush-hush from a national security point of view, and no one has been charged with smuggling this weapon into the country as far as the public knows.

The markings say: MIS A/A MP EM F20 S520   Lot 82, Serial Number 5185

Now, our former military sources have conducted a deeper investigation into the possible deployment of this missile, and they’ve discovered something rather shocking. In the same city where the missile was found — Lakeland, Florida — there exists a private corporation that offers “contract air support” services, including air-to-air missions, air-to-ground support, fleet missile defense and other contract services. Importantly, this corporation operates a fleet of over 80 ex-military fighter jets, including the Mirage fighter jet that is capable of carrying the Mantra R530F missile.

The name of the company is Draken International, with the website DrakenIntl.com. And where is this company located?

Lakeland, Florida.


Draken International is described by Sharp Magazine as, “the world’s largest private tactical air fleet.” As Sharp explains:

Draken’s CEO is Jared Isaacman… He’s amassed a collection of military aircraft that’s already the world’s largest privately owned tactical fleet.

Draken has won every “red air” contract offered by the USAF in the past three years. The company owns 90 fighters and counting, and just announced plans to acquire 20 Mirage F1s from the Spanish Air Force.

According to Draken’s website:


Draken openly talks about their “contract air support” services including “aggressor support” and air-to-air missions, all using ex-military fighter jets.

What are the odds of a live French air-to-air missile being discovered on the tarmac of an airport in the exact same city where a private company exists that offers “contract air support” air-to-air missions and owns and operates nearly two dozen of the French Mirage aircraft capable of firing the very missile that was discovered there?

Draken International claims to own and operate 22 Mirage F1M aircraft, any of which are capable of firing the live missile that was discovered in Lakeland, Florida.

Our concern here isn’t about Draken itself, but rather the possibility that deep state forces plan to perhaps steal a Mirage fighter jet or kidnap family members of Draken board members in order to force the company into giving up a fighter jet that could be armed with missiles to attack the targets of the deep state (such as the White House).

When it comes to the deep state, there’s nothing too lawless or evil for their people to pursue. What we are pointing out is that the resources to acquire a fighter jet, mount a live French missile, and fire it at Air Force One to assassinate President Trump are suddenly converging in the same city: Lakeland, Florida.

This cannot merely be a coincidence.

We believe someone may be targeting Draken and planning to hijack Draken resources to achieve a kinetic attack against the United States of America.


If anybody’s eyebrows were raised about the discovery of the missile in Lakeland, it had to be the top corporate officers of Draken International.

If you read about the officers and board members of Draken, these aren’t a bunch of newbies to the world of military aircraft. The executive team consists of former high-level military officers, DoD weapons specialists, fighter jet combat instructors and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) veterans. The COO of Draken, for example, boasts of, “4000 hours including over 2500 combat and combat support hours in the RC-135V/W Rivet Joint, E-8C JSTARS, and MQ-1B Predator.”

But Draken also has some sketchy partners from the world of weapons manufacturing, including one company that admitted to carrying out felony fraud against the United States of America. Draken counts as its strategic partners “BAE Systems,” a weapons systems contractor that has been steeped in criminal conduct. In 2010, BAE Systems pleaded guilty to “conspiring to defraud the United States of America” and paid a $400 million criminal fine due to its corrupt business practices and unlawful conduct. This was announced by the Dept. of Justice on March 1, 2020, in this press release which states:

BAE Systems plc (BAES) pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia to conspiring to defraud the United States by impairing and impeding its lawful functions, to make false statements about its Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance program, and to violate the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), announced Acting Deputy Attorney General Gary G. Grindler. BAES was sentenced today by U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates to pay a $400 million criminal fine, one of the largest criminal fines in the history of DOJ’s ongoing effort to combat overseas corruption in international business and enforce U.S. export control laws.

Draken International touts its relationship with BAE Systems on its strategic partners web page, stating:

Long standing defense contracting company BAE has teamed with Draken International in efforts to provide the new standard in Contract Air Services… The strategic partnership between BAE Systems and Draken will combine the outstanding and safe past performance of BAE with the extensive fleet of Draken Aircraft and capabilities. This synergy will give unmatched customer service in the aviation defense industry. Confidence and capability are highlighted to ensure on time superior aviation assets service each and every contract with Draken International.

To reiterate, we are not claiming any nefarious intent by Draken International, and it may be that the company is founded by pro-America patriots who love the U.S. Constitution and are making honest money by securing missions around the world to protect worthy assets. Nevertheless, when we see corporations like Draken bragging about partnerships with other weapons companies that have admitted to felony fraud and corruption, it reminds us of how dirty the defense weapons industry really is, and it brings up the obvious question: Does anybody at Draken have a past that could allow them to be blackmailed by the deep state?


Just to make things even more concerning, the new CEO of Draken is Joseph “Joe” Ford, previously of DynCorp, a corporation steeped in criminal activities and child trafficking. Joe Ford is not personally linked to any of this, but he has emerged from a hornet’s nest of nefarious activity at DynCorp. According to a 2017 article in NewsPunch:

A top army General has been arrested on charges of child rape as part of an elite pedophile ring investigation in the U.S.

Former Vice President of DynCorp, Maj. Gen. James Grazioplene, has been charged with multiple counts of child rape which occurred between 1983 and 1989.

His arrest represents the latest in a series of high-level pedophile ring busts by investigators tasked with ending human trafficking and child abuse by the elites in America.

While potentially just a coincidence, Grazioplene’s connections with DynCorp immediately raise a red flag, as the company has been embroiled in numerous high-level scandals involving the exploitation and trafficking of children for sex — dating as far back as the Bosnia conflict during Bill Clinton’s tenure as US President.

Revealing the extreme level of complicity, by DynCorp, in the illegal exploitation of children, former employee, Ben Johnston filed a RICO lawsuit against Dyncorp after he was allegedly fired for reporting human rights abuses by other employees during the Bosnian conflict.

In a 2002 report titled “Dyncorp Disgrace,” Johnston was quoted:

“…None of the girls… were from Bosnia… They were imported in by DynCorp and the Serbian mafia. These guys would say ‘I gotta go to Serbia this weekend topick up three girls.’… “DynCorp leadership was 100 percent in bed with the mafia over there.”

Now, it seems likely that Joe Ford didn’t like what he saw at DynCorp, so he got out of that company as quickly as he could. (He worked there for 4 years and 9 months, according to his LinkedIn profile.) We aren’t accusing Joe Ford of anything at all. He might be a super awesome guy. He’s a U.S. Air Force veteran and previously worked for Beechcraft Defense Company. If I had to take a guess about Joe Ford, he’s probably a very patriotic American who would never intentionally be part of any sort of plot to bring harm to the U.S. President or commit crimes against anyone.

But people like Joe Ford can sometimes be targeted by deep state actors or seditious traitors who attempt to leverage his position at Draken to try to hijack aircraft. That’s why people like Joe Ford need to be running very good personal security teams because he may be at risk of a kidnapping or blackmail attempt to leverage his position at Draken so that deep state operators could gain control of a Mirage aircraft and use it to try to assassinate the President of the United States. In fact, this risk exists for all Draken officers, given that they command very powerful jet fighters which, when armed with the very kind of missile that was just discovered in Lakeland, Florida, turn a “civilian” fleet of aircraft into a literal private air force of missile-toting attack aircraft. (It also brings up the obvious question: How many missiles were not discovered and removed? How many missiles are sitting in a warehouse somewhere in Florida right this very minute, ready to be mounted on fighter jets and fired at the targets named by the deep state?)

And that’s a resource that a lot of deep state, anti-America spooks would like to get their hands on, no doubt. Sadly, treasonous traitor Barack Obama put a lot of seditious military personnel in power during his eight-year attempt to destroy America, and there remain anti-America traitors throughout the U.S. armed forces.


That’s why we urge all the top people at Draken to redouble their corporate security efforts and make sure no outside forces succeed in hijacking the company’s aircraft and using them to carry out assassinations or false flag operations designed to destabilize the United States and throw the November elections into chaos. If I were part of Draken’s security team reading this article, I would immediately initiate an internal audit to identify blackmail vulnerabilities and security weaknesses, given how desperate the anti-America / pro-communist forces have become in their efforts to try to overthrow this nation. I would also take steps to increase the protection of immediate family members of Draken officers and advisors.

We hope that Draken is run by patriots, and we pray that no weapon formed against the United States of America succeeds in its mission. And for the record, once again, we are not accusing Draken of anything at all. The premise of this story is that Draken has resources that treasonous elements who are actively working against America may try to hijack and deploy against America. Therefore, Draken needs to be on alert for its own sake.

Furthermore, we call for President Trump to arrest all traitors and seditious actors operating in the United States of America, which includes the evil deep state traitors — like Brennan, Comey, McCabe and others — who will obviously do anything in their power to overthrow this nation and plunge America into an authoritarian, communist regime run by treasonous Leftists.

Finally, I will reiterate that this website, which I founded, is 100% pro-law enforcement, pro-police and pro-military. We support veterans (and have donated lots of money to veterans groups over the years) and First Responders. We understand the world is a very dangerous place, and we thank God every day for U.S. nuclear submarine commanders, for example, and stealth bomber pilots who can help secure America by letting the enemies of this nation know that if they try to attack us, we will obliterate them. It is only by this mechanism that America can maintain any degree of safety whatsoever, in a world run by insane communists and madmen.

If Draken is operating in support of this mission to protect America and help secure our constitutional republic, then we wish them the greatest success in doing so, and we urge them to maintain the highest security measures to prevent black hat actors from using their resources to potentially harm this nation.

  5. MattMatt on August 22, 2020 at 15:51I have known the new CEO of Draken, Joe Ford, since he and I went through Air Force pilot training together almost forty years ago. I knew his father who flew The Hump in China/Burma/India in WWII. I know his sons, who are both proudly serving in the U.S. Army.Joe, and his family, are patriotic to the nth degree and he takes his oath very seriously. To tie his name to shady dealings at DynCorp or now Draken is ludicrous at best.MattREPLY
    • NC ScoutNC Scout on August 22, 2020 at 17:23I pray you’re right but…explain how they had a live missile that just ‘mistakenly’ ended up there.REPLY
      • MattMatt on August 22, 2020 at 18:14I am right about Joe Ford, no doubt about it. He’s one of the good guys.As to the missile? Can’t say. I can say that you, I, and other civilians cannot buy military hardware above a very basic level. Companies with contracts to the U.S. Gübermint can. They may well have had authorization to have such hardware. If they did then we’ll never know as that fact would be concealed either by corporate security, gübermintal security, or both.What use would they have for such hardware? Same answer as above. Military contractors provide a litany of services and this may have well been headed towards such an end. As a former fighter pilot I can think of several valid uses. There are a variety of companies providing a number of “outside the box” services that people aren’t aware of. Some of them are truly innovative.As to how it ended up on the “tarmac”, no way to be sure. Probably the easiest solution is the most probable – misplaced or mis-delivered. Every shipping or delivery service has screwed up at one time or another. I know that Amazon has eaten more than a few of my packages. Even the military has from time to time misplaced things that would appear to be misplaceable. BTW, if these things can be ordered off Amazon I’m truly impressed.The original source article seems to be designed to whip up controversy and paranoia. This being accomplished I’d be surprised if they’ll do any long term followup on this. As to whether this could shoot down Air Force One – No. Regular airliners and other non-hardened targets, possibly so.MattREPLY
        • NC ScoutNC Scout on August 22, 2020 at 19:15I plan on following up.We see who the parent company is (Blackstone) and their connections to China.REPLY
        • Mas CasaMas Casa on August 22, 2020 at 20:39If the missile was to be used for nefarious purposes, why ship it in its normal shipping and storage container? Agree with Matt on alot of his points.REPLY
          • NC ScoutNC Scout on August 22, 2020 at 20:53They didn’t. What you saw in the pics was not what it was shipped in, that’s the container it sits in prior to being loaded.The shipping crate was unmarked and ‘accidentally’ discovered when a worker popped open the wrong crate.
        • Johnny ParatrooperJohnny Paratrooper on August 22, 2020 at 22:56Losing a missile is much different than losing a few machine guns or even an AT-4.Every single part has the Serial on it. Every single one. Even the screws have the serial lasered into the weapon. Part of international standards to prevent exactly this scenario. There are protocols to prevent this. And technically, whoever lost this missile should be in prison. Because you cannot abandon equipment like this. It is criminal neglect, and you get are supposed to get fried for this.There are supposed to be guards on this thing 24/7. Even when it’s locked up.It doesn’t matter if you are civilian or military. A missile is a missile. And the guys who own this company, are all hanging their heads right now. Because they know. This isn’t a game. Stuff like this has started wars.I’m curious who the weapons officer is. I assume it’s in their directory. I wonder if he has a bunch of extra money, and is divorced, and votes democrat and Republican. And has a perfect record.Like John McCain. The Real American Hero.REPLY

Got switched with a pack of toothbrushes for someone in Ohio. Or, maybe the warehouse dude went to the wrong slot and picked the missile instead of the blender. Your explanation makes me doubt your Joe Ford testimony.REPLY

If we even accept the notion of a private air force operating under contract overseas, doing “air support” in someplace like Syria from someplace like, oh maybe Jordan, then fine. Having the complete weapons system in Florida is a criminal outrage. They have no need to test it here. They have no need to ship it here unless they intend to use this in American airspace. Some of us were not born last week, innovative, valid uses my ass.REPLY
          • NC ScoutNC Scout on August 23, 2020 at 09:30The only place I know of where this would even be remotely valid is Hollaman Air Force Base, White Sands Missile Range for foreign weapons testing.

      Ever. Because you aren’t tied into Chicago Credit Card Unions. Which is more of an Obama Cabinet Member kinda thing.
      Draken International would make sure they are the only game in town. From what I can tell, they run a niche market. OpFor for the U.S. Airforce, Navy, and Army AA systems.You know what’s really cool, they claim they are the only guys on earth who can match U.S. 4th and 5th Generation Fighters.A valuable asset to have, but we already pay for that. It’s call Top Gun Flight School, and the Airforce has their own version that’s very hush hush.So basically this is just the taxpayers paying twice to sell our combat action data to the Chinese. We don’t actually need this. And if we do, we need it about as much as we need SHARP and EO…You know, I remember working for a law firm started by WW2 patriots.
      BTW, They work for Exclusively for Islam, China, Israel, and the E.U.Life’s hard till you realize what’s really going on…
      Just ask General Flynn.Remember those novels you read as a kid? And those movie we all loved? That stuff happens, and this has “stuff happens” written in Chinese, Hebrew, and Arabic all over it.Amazing intel Scout. Good work AP. Somebody saved the president and his family’s life on this one.They should check the flight rosters and talk to everyone who magically skipped the trips to Marlago after April 3rd, 2020.First Family included.REPLY
  8. DVMDVM on August 23, 2020 at 13:05This is crazy everyone! How does this even happen? How can you buy/order a live missile and get it shipped into the US, and then have it easily moved around from state to state? I do want to be careful with my comments because the link to Draken hasn’t been proven yet (although it seems like a no-brainer). Should that link be shown, I can sort of understand a business with a fleet of Russian fighters that provides “pay-as-you-go” opfor services to our military, but how can they “order” a live missile? What happened to the Chain of Custody that MUST be in place? Besides a sender and receiver both wanting to verify a successful journey (think of how interested WE are in just tracking an order of ammo, lol) there must be very detailed legal checklists in place to ship something so dangerous. The biggest surprise is that the missile represents alot of money that is now wasted. Someone lost a ton of money and is going to be mad. It looked to me like everyone just vanished either before (which points to an intentional plant) or after (which points to I don’t want to get in trouble for screwing up) its discovery. It should be easy to backtrack shipping manifests, etc. and find out the source, and who they got the order from. Whether we ever hear anymore about this remains to be seen. Prediction: they’ll say Draken ordered it expecting a dummy missile to use in their opfor flights. They’ll say someone screwed up and sent a live one and it was just a simple mistake from the factory. They’ll promise that the workers were fired or disciplined and that’ll be the end of it.REPLY

They do that out there.In Florida? Hell no.”So I take it that you’re not aware of the missile testing that is done against sub and full scale drones? A very large part of that testing is done in FLORIDA. I’ve been there and participated in it. Most of the missile testing done on the White Sands Missile Range is ground to air Army stuff. I was stationed at Holloman as well. There are other places beside WSMR where foreign tech is tested, studied, & evaluated.Also, it’s a pretty narrow view of the uses of a missile such as this to think that the only thing you could do with it is to shoot it.MattREPLY
