David Booth experienced extremely vivid and terrifying dreams shortly before a deadly airline disaster. Were his prophetic dreams linked to the crash flight 191?
On May 25, 1979, American Airlines Flight 191 took off from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on a routine passenger flight. It had only been in the air a matter of minutes before disaster struck.
Somehow one of the plane’s engines managed to come away from the wing resulting in severe damage to the hydraulic and wiring systems.
The pilot was left with no control whatsoever and the plane plummeted into a local trailer park. 272 people died that day.
It didn’t take long for the local media to turn up and the dreadful aftermath was televised across America.
David Booth sat speechless in front of his TV screen – he knew this event was coming but he had not known when it would occur.
In the weeks leading up to the disaster, Booth had been in constant contact with the American Airlines and the Federal Aviation Administration. He had been plagued by terrifying dreams involving an American Airlines plane.
When he contacted both parties he expected to be laughed off but they took him rather seriously. The problem was that Booth’s prophecies had no exact date or details surrounding the particular plane. Without further information their hands were tied.
An investigation into the tragedy came about shortly after the event and David Booth was questioned several times. He wasn’t really a suspect but authorities were fascinated with his prophetic dreams – did he really see all this before it happened?
The investigation finally concluded that the tragedy was down to damage to the engine cowling. The cowling is the system that secures the engine to the plane’s wing.
It turned out that American Airlines had cut a few corners as they aimed to save maintenance time. This short term fix resulted in 272 deaths and was not approved by the planes manufacturer.
The Bionic Woman
Months later it was revealed that a much more famous individual also had prophetic visions about the disaster that day in May.
Actress Lindsey Wagner was a household name through her portrayal of The Bionic Woman on TV. She was due to board crash flight 191 that day but something held her back.
As she sat in the airport waiting she started to feel very sick. Something was wrong and she could not figure out what. The closer it came to boarding time the more nauseous she became.
In the end she abandoned her plans to fly that day and left the airport. As soon as she got out of the airport’s vicinity she started to feel well again.
