A Plane has "Crashed" in Dubai onto a Highway. Not much is being reported, though emergency services are racing to the scene and fires are being reported.

This event immediately reminded me about an mysterious withdrawal of an story, just days before the event, foretelling an Terrorist Hijacking about to occur in Dubai!

(Reuters) - A cargo plane crashed on a busy highway in Dubai on Friday, setting some cars on fire, Al Arabiya television reported.

Ambulances were rushing to the area, located near a residential district, the station added. It did not report the model of aircraft or its size. Officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

ABC were about to report a major exclusive and pulled the entire story from their site as follows and reported here:

ABC on Tuesday published on its website what seemed to be a major exclusive story by Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross: Law enforcement officials, according to Ross, had been "on a heightened state of alert to a possible hijacking of U.S. carrier flights from the Middle East" -- and as a result the number of air marshals on overseas flights, particularly to Dubai, had in the last few weeks been "greatly ramped up."

But then, just like that, it was gone.

The piece, which ran under the headline "Authorities Were on High Alert for Possible Hijack Attempt" and was sourced to "one senior U.S. official," is simply no longer available on ABC's site. (It has been at least partially preserved on a few outside aggregrator sites.) But even though the story was taken down, ABC told Salon that it stands by the story.
ABC Mysteriously Pulls Story on Dubia Hijacking -

Are we witnessing the event as foretold in real time?

Crash or Terrorist attack?

Hmmm, that is awefully suspicious, though there just may be a reasonable explanation for withdrawing the story. Could it be connected? Sure, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they foretold the event or knew exactly what would happen.

That's my 2 cents anyhow.

Indeed but the ABC story did seem to have proof that more air marshals were flying and an event was expected connected with Dubai very soon.

Then This.

Seems to coincidental to me.

Kind Regards,

Seven forty sevens are usually pretty reliable but they are getting old,there was another incident the other day when one left San Francisco bound for Sydney and an engine blew shortly after takeoff.
