Did Ghosts Bring Down Black Thursday’s Planes???

Everyone is asking themselves, just how in the HELL could FOUR PASSENGER PLANES crash on the same day???

With pretty much every blog and news site reporting nothing else but news of Black Thursday, it’s only right that we at SpiritStuff share our responses to the disasters. So far, not much is known about the causes of the crashes, except that there are only three survivors – and not all of them may make it. But why did the planes go down at these particular points on the map? Looking at the four sites in turn, we think we have the answer…

Crash Site One: Florida Everglades, USA.

It’s not the first time a plane has plummeted into the Everglades. Or the second. In 1979, a Canadian Boeing 737 crashed on its approach to Miami airport, killing 39 passengers and crew. In 1994 a cargo plane spiralled into the swamp AT ALMOST THE SAME SPOT, killing both pilots on board. What most people don’t know is that since then, those who use the stretch of road closest to the site have seen ghostly apparitions standing in the middle of the road, waving their hands over their heads as if distressed. The apparitions are usually male, and are dressed in short-sleeved white shirts, like the kind pilots wear. The ghosts have never been identified, and for a very good reason.

They have no faces.

Crash Site Two: Aokigahara Forest, Japan

If you don’t already know, this forest, known as the ‘suicide forest’ is one of the creepiest places on the planet. Hundreds of Japanese people make a deadly pilgrimage to the forest at the foot of Mount Fuji each year to commit suicide there, and it has a history of being haunted by hungry ghosts, eager to add more to their numbers.

Crash Three: Khayelitsha Township, South Africa

African mythology can be as disturbing as it can get!!! After all, the whole zombie phenomenon started on the continent (more about this here). But check out this freaky story a Cape Town blogger posted recently.

According to the blog, LONG BEFORE the crash there have been sightings in the township of a monster from Zambia called an Iilombamema. With the help of a sorcerer, the Iilombamema is created by someone who needs good fortune, by mixing their own blood with maggots and rags. But the creature – which looks like a fat snake made of old dirty rags and has long spiky teeth – needs to be fed constantly. The more it eats and grows, the richer its creator will get, as long as he or she is cool with feeding it a diet of blood and dead people’s clothing. UGH!!

Crash Site Four: Off the coast of Portugal, Europe

There are countless tales of ghosts and ghostly vessels haunting the seven seas. Click here and here for more!

But did you know this particular area of the Atlantic Ocean has been haunted for years? Scores of cruisers who have taken advantage of this popular cruising route have reported seeing some seriously spooky stuff in their cabins late at night when passing this stretch of coastline. Most of them say they woke up to see a little blond-haired boy curled up and squashed into a ball in the corner of the ceiling, staring down at them with large eyes filled with evil. When they tried to approach him (or just get the hell out of their cabin!!!) the boy hissed at them and then faded away. SPOOKY!

Can it be a coincidence that all of the crash sites were ALREADY haunted??? Could it be that the spirits were drawing the planes to them? Were they calling for some kind of sacrifice? You decide!
