Missing U.S. Pilot CIA "Operation Phantom" Cuba, December,1961
The story of Missing U.S. Pilot CIA "Operation Phantom", now after receiving more new information, is one of several stories that the CIA has generated and fabricated in response to a lawsuit presented in 1963 to Dade County Circut Court by David J. Finger owner of the Piper Apache N2062P. David J. Finger was seeking an insurance claim against the missing Piper Apache N2062P that was used for these CIA covert operation flights to Cuba in 1961. The Insurance company refused to pay the claim because the Piper Apache N2062P had been used as an instrument of war. CIA referred to the last flight as a anti-Castro leaflet drop mission but in reality was an actual landing on Cuban territory to disperse weapons and radio cargo. U.S. insurance companys have no liability for the U.S. plane on Cuban soil so CIA created the story of the Piper Apache N2062 being shot out of the sky while flying at low altitude dropping anti-Castro Fuego leaflets, the insurance underwriters had to pay for the aircraft. If you look several pictures down on this page there is a pic of Bob Thompson, Bill Johnson and others at the airstrip on Normans Cay in an underground room where they are preparing rifles, ammo, radio gear and the Fuego leaflets. What you don't see is parachutes for this equipment because the Apache N2062P is schedueled to land in Cuba at a specific location on a isolated dirt back road near a small town. The plane leaves Normans Cay with 2 aboard, pilot Thompson and co-pilot Swanner weapons, radio gear and leaflets destination Cuba. The small twin engine plane touchs down and quickly unloads the rifles, ammo and radio then powers up to get airborne. The plane breaks ground and is begining to get on the wing when machine gun and small arms fire opens up on the red and white Apache N2062P. An ambush of Cuban milita were hiding and waiting for the plane to unload then depart before they shot it out of the sky. The plane airborne for a few seconds flew out of control and crashed into the side of a Sugar Mill Refinery killing 27 yr. old Korean War Air Force veteran Bob Thompson married with wife and 3 kids and Bob Swanner, 28 yr. old ex-Navy Pilot with pregnant wife who miscarried shortly after he went misssing. At least the CIA got that part right about the Sugar Mill. CIA continues to do what it does best, deny, deny everything we have Excutive Privilage they say. Not only were these two young men flying missions involving leaflet drops but actully landing in Cuba for the CIA to support CIA operatives inside Cuba with weapons and radio transmitters. CIA was using my father to run guns for them, do their dirty work and they erased him from the face of the earth. CIA still denies involvement 52 years later and you know they would not likely admit to being gun runners thou we know otherwise. It's one thing to send someone to their death and another thing to deny and cover it up for the past 52 years. CIA should be ashamed for what they did to him and my family. My father was born and raised 2/14/1934 in Frame, West Virgina. A poor, barefoot Appalachian hillbilly country boy who didn't own his first pair of good shoes till he was 9 years old, up on the ridge laying out under the hot summer sun under a chestnut tree staring at the sky watching jet contrails disappear in the blue summer sky dreaming he would be a pilot some day. And he was. The Thompson clan family cemetary is just a quarter mile down the road where he grew up in Frame, West Virgina, he belongs there, not the damn cold communist grave in Cuba where his government and CIA left him more than 52 years ago.

I have tried numerous times for the past 3 days to connect to 1-866-374-1769 but have been unsuccessful obtaining a PIN #. However it does take my credit card information. At times once the Credit card info is input the call gets disconnected and sometimes it tells me the transaction was not accepted. I have tried 5 different credt cards. I checked my bank account and $11.00 was debited from the account and no PIN #.

866-374-1769 is DEFECTIVE
The recording takes my credit card info, then tells me my card has been declined. When I contacted the credit card services office, they assure me the charges went through--BUT I NEVER RECEIVED MY P.I.N. If anyone is truly overseeing this website, please look into this problem!

There is something wrong with the phone
As others have mentioned, 1-866-374-1769 is busy 24/7 no matter what day you call, you cannot get through. Is it possible they are trying to curtail visits and just disconnected the phone? I've emailed and of course no answer. We're trying to bring my mother in law for her second visit and she doesn't understand why we can't get beyond step one. ANY HELP is appreciated.

I can communicate with them!
Hello to everyone who has commented on this page. I live in miami and I have successfully communicated with the interest section. I will be more than happy to share with you how I did it and how I brought my mother in law and grand mother to visit me last year 2011. One of them already has an interview date for this year to visit me again. As you know, it is extremely difficult to connect with that 1 866-374-1769 number, but I can help you bring your family member from Cuba to visit or for a permanent stay in the US in a completely legal way.
