Interesting you should ask, as I remember having many dreams of seeing planes crash right in front of my eyes; one particularly memorable one, involved seeing a plane silently nosedive into the ground over the horizon.

I presume this has nothing to do with the future!

Twice I've had a nightmare of a United 727 crashing. In the dream my family and I were driving down in Florida looking for a hotel to settle into to when we see this 727 flying lower and lower until it eventually crashes and falls into pieces. Another dream I've had was of a small commuter that crashed in the parking lot at O'Hare. But like Cathay's, the plane didn't explode. The scariest thing was I walked up to the plane in my dream and I was looking at myself in the cockpit. Maybe I should lay off the action movies with the airplanes.

but my family has been known to have psychic dreams, like stuff in your dreams exactly happens in real life, at a homecoming parade, one of the people i know has this really low riding pickup and i needed a ride down to the float like 1000 feet away, so i hopped in the back and i got this overwhelming deja-vu for like 10 seconds cuz it was in my dream, i hate those!!!!!!! then one time my sister says she had a dream that this guy in black rang the doorbell and said my aunt had died and my sister turned around and then turned back and the he was gone and she got woken up to my mom saying my aunt had died...weird, idk if she's telling the truth, but i beleive it for some reason

I had a dream last night about three planes crashing all at once, including a Korean Air plane...don't remember anything more. Odd, too, because I slept without TV last night, which is rare for me, but that's usually what would influence such dreams.

I dreamt of the Concorde crash a few days before it happened, there was special emphasis on a bright Blue light in the dream, just after the crash I got to know that the plane had hit a hotel named "Hotel Bleu", and that of a Tajik Air Tu-154 some time before one crashed in a desert in Sharjah, UAE with only one survivor, in my dream the plane crashed into the sea with only one survivor, had lots more that I dont want to discuss, and pray they never come true.

I did actually have a dream and it was quite strange, but it wasn't scary, it was just strange.

Most of you know that I live in southeast Idaho. Pocatello Airport is located 8 miles to the west of Chubbuck, surrounded by wheat and potato fields and sagebrush.  Sleepy

I'm about one mile west of the airport, at night, walking along a southern-running road which passes under the approach path to PIH. Many a time I've walked that road to watch the planes come in.

In my dream, it's nighttime and I'm seeing alot of planes passing over, clearly able to see the strobes and red and gree lights on them. Very peaceful, then it's day time and I'm also seeing jets go over, creating contrails.
I wander into a wheat field off the road, I look up and at about 37,000 feet is a Delta 767-300 passing over, old old livery. I put on my binoculars to get a closer look. Yep, it's delta. I take ofthe binocs and then where the 767 was I see a puff of smoke. I quickly put the binocs back on to see a fireball midsection on the 767. I can still see the nose and tail of the plane, but the rest is just a big fireball.  Wow!

Taking off the binocs, I run in the direction of the plane's travel, even though it's still very very high. I look up again, just in time to see the nose break off the plane and spiral uncontrollably downward, with small, colored dots flying out the back end of the plane.

The tail section of the plani breaks up into several pieces, and begins falling to the ground. Taking off the binocs again, I see lots of metal sheets and white flakes high in the sky just falling, falling.  Wow!

Then, I'm in the airport itself, then I'm on the ramp, loking up again. About half a mile away, near where I was in the wheat field, I see this large, white thing hit the ground and explode. Then all around I hear large "Banging" noises, like you would hear during a firework show, booms that echo throughout the air, and pices of the plane hit the ground.  Sad

IT was then I woke up, not scared, just in awe of what I had just dreamed. I went back to sleep.

This was I believe August 25th.

Aloha 737-200!!  Wink/being sarcastic

Woudl you guys like to hear about my other dream, concerning a 737-300?  Big grin

This isn't so much a dream, but the night before the attacks I was thinking about how AA hadn't had a crash in a long time......eerie.

Great Question,
I have had many of these dreams but the one that i remember the most clearly is this:
I was about 8, and it was at this hugge airport with a huge terminal with the runway right in front of the windows. Well i was walking around and out of nowhere comes this Huuuugge plane, like an A340-600, just like that, and it came roaring down and with out any landing gear down it crashed on the runway, but like Cathay's too, it didnt explode. I remember seeing the name "Sostosta" on the plane. Then i woke up and it was terribly hard to pull myself together and go to school.

One of the most vivid and disturbing dreams I have had is when I dreamed I was on TWA flight 800. I was on a cockpit visit when the explosion happened. I wasn't killed during the explosion but instead survived until the front piece of the aircraft that broke off hit the ocean. Very disturbing.

well i remember now on august 2nd, i was going to LA, but first i had to go from rochester to minneapolis on a saab 340, well 2 nights before, i had a dream i was on a saab 340 and we took off then i got a severe roller coaster feeling like we'd dropped 500 feet in a few seconds, i woke up cuz of that, then 2 days later, i got an eerie feeling about the flight so did my sister, and 1/2 way into the flight, bam, the same feeling in my dream happened in real life and the pilot said "i'm very sorry for that, there was another aircraft coming i didn't see and we had to advert a mid-air collision" it f*cking freaked me out, but the next flight on an A320 to LA was fine, except it was windy coming down so we dropped small then a lot then small, it was fun

I dreamt I was in a travel agent booking a flight to Brussels and out of the window I saw a multi coloured 744 low down over some houses. It then went into a deep stall and exploded. I tried to get the girl in the travel agents to get down because all the glass was going to come in but she just sat dumbfounded. Then it all came crashing in and that was the end.
Problem is, I had that on Sept 11th. I told two of my work colleagues at 10.30am UK time and later that day when news broke they gave me some funny looks. It still spooks me and I don't want a repetition of anything similar.

Though this is not aviation-related, I mgiht share my most scariest dreams...

They are the dreams where I experience a situation that takes place weeks, months or years later. It's not so scary when I wake up after having the dream, but it's scary when someone say something and I'm able to finish their sentence because I remember the dream.. I hate when that happens!

I remember one I had a couple of months ago which took place during takeoff. I was sitting in a window seat on a 767 and when the aircraft got off the rwy, it couldn't get very high. The aircraft just kept on doing go around's until it was able to climb high of the rwy. The funny thing was that not a single passenger seemed to care. They were all calm. Then I woke up.

Funny you should ask. I cannot remember ever waking up from a nightmare but a few days ago I dreamed in perfect detail that I saw a PIA 747 crash into the side of a hill. It was so life like I shot out of bed. The explosion, the sound of impact was so real even thinking about it brings back chills.

Remember that SR 111 MD-11 crash?

The night before it happened i remembered my trip with Swissair to JNB, and thought how they were really safe.

I dreamed how my classmates were somwhere in US (I am not from US, as you can see in my profile). Anyways, we were coming out from this club or whatever the place was, early in the morning, and suddenly an SR plane flew above our heads really close. It turned right and crashed. When I woke up i turned TV on, and saw the news of the SR crash... really weird.
After that happened, I decided never to fly MD-11.

Cheers.

I had this really creepy feeling on the evening of September 10th. Then the attacks happened. The next time I had this feeling, a co-worker's father in law died. I tend to trust my gut feelings.

As for dreams - I don't think I ever dreamt of a plane crash.

I've often dreamed of watching a jet airliner have some sort of mid-air mishap. I don't know what that means.

On the morning of the Challenger disaster
I was sleeping late and dreamed that something happened on the pad causing the shuttle to explode. Very weird.

I had a very interesting dream not long ago. I had to take the controls of a B747 because the pilots suddenly disappeared as the plane was descending towards the runway. So I took control of the 747, all of a sudden one of the engines loses power and the plane was banking. I was too busy trying to level the plane out that I forgot we were on final approach to the airport. As the plane was about 50 feet close to the runway the hydraulics failed... I was now flying an uncontrollable 747... as the plane passed the halfway point of the runway I decided to cut the power and plane just literally fell on the runway and crashed right into the forest that was right in front of the runway... and then I woke up.... interrsting dream eh...

I had this weird one i was outside the lab at our school and i look into the sky. They sky is this weird greenish yellowish color like right bebfore a evening storm. I see this 727 at i would say maybe 8000 ft in a bank to the right in a moderate dive. Then the 727 has a flame come out of the no 2 engine. It looked exactly like the pic of the psa jet going down except the fire was out of the engine not the tail. It just made me think how fast a plane accident can happen and how tramitizing it could be to actually see one. I had another weird on i was sitting on the wing of a 744 and right after takeoff we began sinking and for some reason i heard the GPWS start going off and i feel that sinking feeling only it is very intense then we go into the forest and i wake up.

I remember some. One of the worst was one where I was walking down this street and I saw this concorde in the air and I was at this intersection where I live near and then the plane then hurtled down towards me and I was stuck there at the intersection and then I turned around and it crashed near me and then I woke up. That scared the crap out of me I screamed when I woke up! Wow!

I had another one and it was bad too. I was in my house and I went outside to hear this very low plane comming near the house. It was a Southwest Boeing 737-700 and It was comming directly to my house. I ran from the backyard to the front and then I heard this explosion and then I woke up. All those nightmares I couldn't sleep for a long time after those !  Wow!

A long time ago i had a dream that i was walking down the motorway with some friends (!?) and we saw a military plane fly over then stall and crash in the field next to us! I think the pilot ejected though so no fatalities in my dream luckily.

I Had A Bad One Before Sept 11

Tue Oct 16, 2001 6:46 am

I had some other one that happened before the terrorist attacks. One of the ones happened the night before it happened.

I was riding on this Boeing 757 and we were flying over this body of water and I asked where we were and they said they didn't know so I asked some other people and they didn't know either and then this man in black clothes got up behind with a gun like the military police have and he got up and followed me when I went up to the cockpit. I stopped and I asked where was he going and when he said he had a gun nobody reacted. Then he got to the middle of the aircraft and shot downward and then to one of the plane's doors and shot again downward near the fuel tanks and then the door opened up and then the plane exploded. I woke up and then I was next to this person on another plane I think it was a DC-10 and we were going at a fast rate of speed and then we were landing at this airport and then the plane made this big upward motion and it went up this 90 degree angle and the the monitor up front came on with the picture of the same plane I was on and it was flying upward and then fell down toward this building and I woke up before it crashed and then when I was awake I left for school that's when I heard about the plane hitting the first tower and later on I saw it on TV all day and I saw later on when they showed the tape of the other plane hit the other tower. That was a wierd dream and a wierd day Wow!

PIA is a nightmare and a bad dream, put together. The same could be said about their ageing aircraft.

This wins question of the week, if not the month. I've had tons of airline crash dreams over the years, which I attribute to my relatively detailed knowledge of how planes work, why they crash, and a latent fear of flying (even though I do love to fly, which is not as inconsistent as it might sound). Most of my dreams involved mid-air collisions and planes doing the kinds of maneuvers they really aren't capable of doing. Just a couple of days ago I had another crash dream that was a little different, in that I was in the plane. Most of my other dreams I am only an observer. Anyway, in this dream I was in the rear of a 727. The approach and landing were fine, but near the end of the rollout we flipped over completely. No fire or anything - we simply walked out the EE doors onto the runway. Not a real enjoyable dream, but since nearly all 727s are going bye-bye, even a bad dream is better than nothing!

I have had a few dreams of planes crashing, fortunately I have never been involved in the crashese otherwise I think I might be worried about premonitions and the like! Also the dreams are usually very unrealistic and not connected to anything that might actually happen in real life (ie what all dreams are!). However recently (about a week ago) I had one that really freaked me out: I live near LHR, though not under the flight path, and after the Sep 11th atrocities planes were taking a different flight path into Heathrow that took many loud heavies over my house that would normally approach from much further north. Several nights I was woken by loud aircraft (especially 747s) overflying my house, and a couple of times I would get out of bed and look out the window (it is rare to see them so low). I dreamt one night that a 747 classic came over my house REALLY loudly, was at really low altitude, kept descening, then crashed in a huge ball of flame about 2 miles away. It was really freaky - I can even visuallise now what I saw, the light of the explosion against the outline of the rooftops I can see from my room. I woke up later in the night as the result of a police siren in the road outside and jumped out of bed thinking that my dream had been real and to see what was going on. For a minute or so I must have stared out the window cr@pping myself convinced that the accident had really happened - it was that vivid. I was very relieved when I worked out it had all been a dream, though it is still clear in my mind. Wierd - so glad it wasn't real.

For some reason, I too have had those kind of dreams. Actually, I had those kind of dreams before the 9/11 event. Many of my dreams involve witnessing planes in catastrophic sitiations, crashing, taking off and then going out of control plumeting to earth.
Who knows why. They say dreams can tell alot about you and what is deep inside you. All I know is I love airplanes and love to fly, but at night occasionally, those planes dont make it. Go figure.
Happy flying non the less!

Ive had many dreams of airliners and helicopters crashing. Ive had about 6 or 7 dreams of different airliners crashing into my house, like watching a 747 flying over my house (as i do in real life) then watching its wing explode then fell straight down into my house. Then i just had a 2 dreams, one about 2 sea king navy helicopters having a midair over my house and (of course) crashing into it. Probably gonna have one of those dreams again tonight, well lets see.
