I can’t say that I have ever had a dream of aircraft crashing into me, however I have had numerous close calls with aircraft and falling objects
falling from the sky. Though not recently. These all happened while I was in the 82nd Airborne.
First crash was a C-130 that bellied in about 50 yards in front of me during a LAPES, broke its back, proceeded into the woodline and blew up in front
of about 3000+ people.
The second was another C-130 that basically heavy dropped itself trying to heavy drop a Sheridan (Tank). The thing got wedged inside the aircraft and
down it came.
The third was an OH-58 Kiowa that missed us (overhead) by treetop level before slamming into the forest.
Not to mention the many things that has fallen from the sky during airborne operations. Helmets, Ruck sacks, HUMMV’s, Artillery pieces, the
occasional body, etc, etc. Twice I was that falling body but thankfully the reserve worked.
Then there was the time a homebuilt crashed onto the highway about 100 yards in front of me after coming in to low to the airport.
If a asteroid hits earth…I’ll probably be at ground zero…yet somehow survive.
Good AND bad memories. I survived, yet in almost every case, people died.
