Did WBTV pilot Chip Tayag crash his helicopter, just four hours after his 4th COVID-19 vaccination?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Chip Tayag Crashed Helicopter From Vaccine SADS!
On 23 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that WBTV pilot Chip Tayag crashed his helicopter and killed himself and meteorologist Jason Myers, after receiving his fourth COVID-19 vaccination just four hours earlier?
It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!
Truth : Chip Tayag Did NOT Crash Helicopter From Vaccine SADS!
The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.
Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website
Real Raw News is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.
To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.
This disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.
His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:
- Did US Military Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel?!
- Did US Military Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death?!
- Did Trump Just Avert World War III, With Putin’s Help?!
- Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Murder?!
- Were Anthony Fauci & Loretta Lynch Executed In Gitmo?!
- Did US Special Forces Just Arrest Dr. Anthony Fauci?!
- Did US Air Force Pilots Resign Over Vaccine Mandate?
Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of COVID-19 Vaccination Before Flight
Only Real Raw News has published anything about Chip Tayag receiving his 4th COVID-19 vaccination just four hours before crashing his helicopter.
If it’s true that Chip Tayag got his 4th vaccine dose just before a flight that ended in a crash, it would have been picked up by at least one or two other blogs, if not the mainstream media.
Yet, no one else could corroborate the claim? How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story” and the many other stories that turned out to be false?
Fact #3 : Unknown If Chip Tayag Was Vaccinated
It is currently unknown if Chip Tayag was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects, or had a 4th vaccine dose before he died!
For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Fact #4 : WBTV Helicopter Took Off At 11:19 AM
The WBTV helicopter – a Robinson R44, crashed at around 12:20 PM local time, next to the Interstate 77 South highway.
But it took off 38 minutes earlier from the WBTV headquarters in uptown Charlotte at 11:19 AM, according to flight records from RadarBox.
In other words – it is really impossible for Chip Tayag to get his 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine four hours before that flight. Which vaccination centre opens at 7 AM?
Fact #5 : WBTV Helicopter Appeared To Be Malfunctioning
Despite suggestions that Chip Tayag may have died or collapsed from his 4th COVID-19 vaccination, eyewitness accounts stated that the helicopter appeared to be in trouble.
David Bristol, who is a trainee pilot, watched the WBTV Sky 3 helicopter that Chip Tayag was piloting, make slow circles for a while, when he noticed two odd things:
- the sound Sky 3 made seemed to change
- he then saw Sky 3 make two odd, hard turns to the left, before suddenly disappearing behind the trees.
Another eyewitness concurred that the helicopter appeared to be in trouble, and the pilot made an aggressive move to prevent crashing onto the highway.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Johnny Jennings confirmed that the pilot was in control, and managed to avoid hitting the busy highway.
From all eyewitness accounts, Chip Tayag did not just collapse after getting his fourth dose of the vaccine. He was in control, and managed to crash the helicopter away from a busy highway.
Fact #6 : USAF Pilots Did Not Resign Over Vaccine Mandate
It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to repeat their long-debunked claim that USAF pilots resigning over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin never sent any text message demanding that all Armed Forces members to immediately get the COVID-19 vaccine.
In any case, no F-22 pilot or B-52 crew member ever quit over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
Everything that Real Raw News posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.
