A Hercules just flew directly overhead, on long approach to Whenuapai, perhaps at 2000'. And the next thing to happen was my ceiling fan, with the wireless remote tucked safely in a draw, turned on full blast! What on earth do those aircraft carry?!?

The ceiling fan was caused by HAARP, the plane was just flying low.

Prop backwash circulating thru the house, causing the fan to spin faster ,,,, obvious, really ...

Or a mega-powered TV-Killer remote :-)




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

If the remote is infrared....then probably a coincidence. 

If the remote is using something else to communicate...then maybe some RF just happeend to match the instructions the fan might respond to.

When the fan blades saw their big brothers on the C130 they thought "kewl" and were trying to get noticed for promotion to an outdoor vertical role?




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Pilot was flying low and trying to use his remote control out the window to turn the fan on at his place?

Infra-red landing lights coincidently modulated to the same frequency as your fan remote - due to shining through the rotating propellers?

I should point out the remote is of the RF variety.

My own suspicion is that the Herc was broadcasting some very strong signal close to the f of the remote's, or a harmonic thereof. Probably a weapons lock, knowing my luck Innocent

Liking the suggestions tho.

I remember some idiot on a visiting Frigate switching the long range radar on while tied up at a wharf in Wellington. Lots of trouble in surrounding buildings.

What would be bizarre would be operating your remote and seeing the fans on the Herc stop :D
