plane crash


Had anyone else been the target of this prank, it would’ve been downright cruel. Is it wrong that since it’s Paris Hilton, I find it okay. In fact, I found myself laughing hysterically during her freakout.

The 34-year-old heiress thought she was boarding a plane for a 15 minute aerial tour of Dubai. Unbeknownst to her, the Egyptian Ashton Kutcher, Ramez Galal, had an elaborate and terrifying joke planned for his Egyptian show, Ramez In Control.

From nasty smells, to fellow passengers jumping out of the plane’s back door to frightening nosedives, Paris’ reactions are what everyone in her place would’ve done. Pure terror and shrieks. I probably would’ve been freaking way more, in her defense.

Not surprisingly, she’s shaken up immediately after finding out that it’s a hoax, but it appears she’s mellowed out since. Check out the clip below, after a recent tweet describing her experience.

“Scariest moment of my life. I really believed the plane was going to crash & we were all going to die,” Paris tweeted after the video was released online.

I love watching footage or clips of live news anchor bloopers and the video you’re about to watch definitely falls into that category.

WGN-TV Morning News anchors Larry Potash and Robin Baumgarten “winged” their way through the footage of a faux crash near 29th Street and Martin Luther King Drive in Chicago, around 8am this past Friday. The describe what they’re able to see from the footage they’re seeing on the screen until they get word through their ear piece that what they’re seeing is actually for a television show.

Once they were told what was actually going on, a baffled and annoyed Baumgarten then keeps repeating, “Are you kidding me!?” She adds, “They might want to tell the news folks when they’re doing this and shutting down King Drive.” Watch the clip of all of this below.

Yesterday, at an the Reno Nevada National Championship Air Races, a plane crashed into the VIP box area killing three and critically injuring many others. The stunt pilot was a well respected man named Jimmy Leeward who was 74 years old and flying a Vintage WW II Air Fighter called a P51 Mustang. In the show’s 44 year run, there have been 19 deaths but nothing has ever happened like this. When you see the footage, you see how it all happened so fast and fans would have had no time to react. Here’s what CNN had to say:

“Mass casualties” were reported at an air show after a plane slammed into the box seat area in front of a grandstand at the National Championship Air Races and Air Show in Reno on Friday, a spokesman for the show told CNN. At least two people died and 54 people were transported from the scene with injuries, according to officials.”

Watch some of the footage below as well as the an interview with the pilot from earlier this week. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims:
