New Pics of Eldorado FLDS 1-25-2006

FLDS in Eldorado are busy little bees!! Buildings are popping up everywhere. There are more people and more women and children out. They are erecting a new grain silo, new building by hay barn and massive building northwest of the temple. Wells are in the process of completion and terraces have been created in the field east of quarry. What is the new building northwest of the temple for? From the top in looks like many very small rooms with a long hall, part of this building is underground. If this structure were Catholic I would say they looked like confessionals.

As Always, Photos are Yours to Enjoy…

Excellent photos pilot, GOOD JOB!

The large building looks like possible housing, the rooms appear to have small rooms like closets, with larger rooms as bedrooms, decorative wood logs around top of hint it's a residential structure. The smaller building in your photos might be something more sinister with it's heavy concrete reinforced walls towards bottom of web photos, perhaps the poster furnace might have had something after all.

A recent newspaper article about subpoenas being served on FLDS members, perhaps the FLDS is begining to flee in large numbers to YFZ. See recent Success article & http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/Issues/2006-01-26/news/news.html

All the foundations at the YFZ are built like the building at the hay barn. Nothing new. But curious shape.

Hey Pilot! As usual, your photos are very informative and extremely clear. I have been studying them so that I can get more of an idea of how it is all laid out. It seems like there are a lot of buildings with no one in them. Maybe they are just hiding. It wouldn't surprise me if the people down there in tx start hiding just like there "fearless" leader. I would like to see more pictures of people if you can manage it. I can zoom in and clarify the photos so that I can see if I can recognize them. I don't know a whole lot of the people , but I would know them if I saw them again.


one more thing that I would like to ask a question about. there is an abandoned building next to the carwash in cc/ hil. just wondering who is doing the toxic/ hazard clean-up on the building and/or property?

Thanks

Thanks pilot!

You must have been quite close to get the image of the 'all-seeing-eye'. Could you get that close on some of the people? I would understand if you do not want to. I have close relatives I believe are there and would like some confirmation.

I am sorry, actually I was not close at all - I used a 12 X optical lens and they are digitally enhanced. We must stay at least 1000 feet above a populated area by FAA regs. It is hard getting close-up shots with a telephoto lens, the sun in your face and traveling at 85 to 90 knots with a notch of flaps. No, I do not fly and photograph at the same time. When I take the photos, my Dad fly’s me.

You are doing a GREAT job if that's the conditions! Thanks for your efforts. The info you have provided is invaluable.

anyone have an answer to my questions from 3:08 pm?

3:08
Is that the building with the telephone tower?

someone who cares said...

I don't know if it has a phone tower or not, but it is right across the street from the convenience store. It used to be owned by Will Black. It is a metal building with a lot of rust. It has bay doors on the side and was in operation about 4 or 5 years ago. This place is really bad news. So, please get back to me and let me know if it is still there or if it has been removed/ torn down.

Thanks

Does anybody know where Leroy Draper (goes by Steed) went to?

Heard he was kicked out, but nobody seems to know anything.

There is a Leroy Steed in Texas or there used to be. Is this him?

Does the silo being assembled in the photos above resemble the one that was reportedly taken from the crik a couple of weeks ago?

10:28- no, that's a different Leroy Steed. That one really is a steed. this other one's a pretender.

Nobody knows where Leroy Draper went?

Is there water around the big saw still? It looks like they may be shutting it down.

No silos. Elevator.

To 1/29/2006 8:25 AM,

You are correct in your assumption that the lathe looks like it has shut down. We have seen no activity on the lathe, but that does not mean that it could not be used for commerce ventures should they so desire.

Pilot makes the news in Utah. a newspaper in Salt Lake City has an article where pilot is qouted & one of the pictures from pilot's website is featured. The article predicts that building of temple marks begining of end for FLDS. Article also states, "In Eldorado, residents are worried about the potential for a confrontation between law enforcement and Jeffs' followers.
"With Warren Jeffs being wanted, he can stay out there," said Doyle. "Eventually, somebody's going to play the FBI's hand. We're going to come in and find out he's there, and if that happens, all hell is going to break loose."

Here's url for entire article: http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/0,1249,635180342,00.html

I just learned how to use Google Earth. Can someone give me the exact location of YFZ?

Try entering location as Eldorado, Texas which should get you into area you need to see, the google earth feature allows one to move area being looked at, move to area about 3 mile NE of Eldorado to see YFZ.

Google Earth's images are way-old.

It will show it as dirt and brush,

You can see the original three bldgs under construction.

You can see the basements of the 1st three buildings, sometime in early 2004

Google earth and Google maps have the same images. They have been on that pilot's site for a year. Images were about Jan. 2004. The images you see are no different than what has been on the front page of the pilot’s website at http://web.sccn2.net/flds. There is nothing new; and no revelations from Google earth. If you want to see something new looks at the links down below. That’s Recent!

Hey pilot,

I like your new website. Aren't you afraid they will come after you after you posted your real identity?

onthestreet said...

2/08/2006 7:04 PM: Who's "They" who might come after the pilot for revealing his identity. The FLDS people are the best friends of every person in the world. Besides, they have known his identity all along, and he was quite safe.

Street said: The FLDS people are the best friends of every person in the world.

Definition of friend:
friend ( P ) Pronunciation Key (frnd)
n.
A person whom one knows, likes, and trusts.
A person whom one knows; an acquaintance.
A person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause; a comrade.
One who supports, sympathizes with, or patronizes a group, cause,
Friend A member of the Society of Friends; a Quaker.


OK Street this "friend" comment is the biggest bunch of poop I have heard today. Man what are you smoking. Oh, I forgot you think druggies are just trying to make an honest living.

Let's see the word should be "Fiend"
An evil spirit; a demon.
The Devil; Satan.
A diabolically evil or wicked person.
Informal. One who is addicted to something: a dope fiend.
Informal. One who is completely absorbed in or obsessed with a given job or pastime: a crossword-puzzle fiend.

Now that is better.

STREET’S Reply: Okay, let’s examine that. God is the friend of all the world. Would not most of the world agree with that. Of course. Now, God destroys nations and empires, casts them down, and even his own elect Israel, like the Prophet cast down many who were polluting God’s heritage. Still friend, or did God and His Prophet suddenly transform into “fiend”? I think most will agree that the very act of chastising them for their own fiendish acts that destroy the souls and minds and bodies of man, that they might be saved, is the greatest act of love and friendship toward those so plagued. The fact that you don’t know, like, or trust him, nor allied with him, does not mean that he does not know, like, and trust you to correct your ailments, even if it be from afar. I said that Warren and the FLDS people are the best friends of every person in the world, that they are THAT to you, NOT that you are that to them. You can be an enemy to God and his prophet, but they are not an enemy to you. For you to be an enemy to such is the mark of a “fiend”, an evil spirit, a demon, within yourself. But it can only be overcome when you actually know the enemy within you, and then acquire a desire to do something about it. The very first objective of an army is to know the enemy. If they enemy is within their camp, and they don’t see it, they’re DEAD.
