May 25, 1979, was one of the worst days in American aviation history. It was the day when American Airlines Flight 191 crashed minutes after taking off from O’Hare Airport in Chicago. One of the engines came away from the wing which resulted in significant damage to the wiring and hydraulic systems of the plane. The pilot had no control of the plane, and it crashed into a nearby trailer park. 272 people perished and for one man, it was an especially harrowing scene because he had predicted an aviation disaster, he just wasn’t able to narrow it down. With confirmed reports from one FAA manager, it’s near impossible to claim coincidence. We use this incredible case to broach the subject of premonition, precognitive dreams, and even astral projection.
