kickstones wrote:There is also a search engine for photos of the runners which confirms the two runners behind Lubitz, however no sign of Lubitz in these pictures. Nor can any be found through his race no. 403.
Unless there is some other logical explanation, than either the official times are wrong or the supposed image of Lubitz has been inserted.
Kickstone, very good findings! Your observation about the discrepancy with Strudel Banzai and the people around him seems very valid! Unless, I don't know, at the end of the marathon they went a couple of times around the track, I'm not an expert, I can't tell if they would do that.
Also very fishy that his name and his name only would not appear on that other page. As if they had prepared a placeholder and forgot to fill it.
It seems to show that the fake character of Strudel Banzai might have been superimposed to a real competition. Of course this implies that some of the other competitors, at least those included in those pictures, are probably in on the scam, otherwise they might come out to say "I don't remember him". This is nothing special and has been done many times. All you need is some "brother" of some masonic group or tribe, and the airline companies certainly don't lack in those ones. The Boston marathon goes to show that no matter how public, how collective an event is supposed to be, it is always possible to take it over and use it as a stage.
Just one note: when you link to the source of a picture, you cannot link to the picture itself. We already have that link in the picture embed.
Take the image below for example, taken from:

Here instead we need a link to the Telegraph page you took the picture from. (I assume http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... pilot.html )
(also if you link to a blog, better find the link straight to the post, rather than the archive. In this case it would be http://2012alemaniadeleste.blogspot.hu/ ... athon.html)

While I was on the Telegraph, I picked up a couple more absurd news about Strudel Banzai:
1) Andreas Lubitz's father 'devastated
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... -down.html
The father of the Germanwings co-pilot who allegedly deliberately crashed his plane into the French Alps, killing all 150 people on board, is “devastated, completely shattered” by his son’s act, a French official who spoke to him said.
“He is carrying on his back the entire weight of the drama. He is a man whose life has broken down,” said Bernard Bartolini, the mayor of Prads-Haute-Bléone, a small town near the site of the crash.
The parents of Andreas Lubitz have not spoken in public since the crash on Tuesday. They were questioned by French police during their stay in France and German police were due to talk them when they returned to Germany.
Mr Bartolini said he met them when they visited the crash site and attended a memorial ceremony nearby on Thursday along with families of the passengers and crew who died.
“He (the father) is a man whose life is in ruins. I felt incredibly sorry for him as he expressed all his emotion, he expressed his emotion because he has lost a loved one, but also because his son is perhaps the (cause) of all this tragedy,” he told BFM news channel.
So, Lubitz father also went on the tour with all the victims... and yet is life "is in ruins". The lack of logic and sense and reality is staggering.
2) Germanwings crash co-pilot Andreas Lubitz body parts 'found'
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... found.html
Crash scene investigators have found body parts thought to belong to the co-pilot of the ill-fated Germanwings flight that crashed into the Alps, it has been claimed.
We are also told that the speed of the plane was 500mph. And Strudel Banzai was right there at the front. The plane got shattered in a million tiny pieces. A DNA test takes weeks. AND YET, with ho further detail, we are informed that they have found the body parts.
They were probably next to the magic mobile phone that survived with a movie of the crash in it:
