For 10 nights in a row in 1970, David Booth had the same nightmare. While deep in sleep, he witnessed a jetliner veering off a runway, flipping completely over, and then bursting into flames. Booth felt compelled to inform the FAA about his dreams. Officials actually listened to what he had to say and concluded that he was dreaming of a Boeing 727 or perhaps a DC-10 plane.
On the day that David Booth had his last nightmare, American Airlines DC-10 Flight 191 crashed just a few moments after takeoff. One of the plane’s engines broke loose, causing an imbalance. The plane flipped on the runway and burst into flames.
All 273 passengers aboard died.
In 1966, actress Sharon Tate was hiding inside a bedroom at her ex-boyfriend’s home. All day, she’d been unable to shake a horrible sense of foreboding, and she was now trying to sleep the feeling off. Then she saw a man enter the room. She recognized him as Paul Bern, the house’s former owner. The only problem was that Bern had committed suicide years before.
Sharon fled from the ghostly figure, down the stairs, where she saw a figure with its throat cut open. She fixed herself a drink and then headed back upstairs, once again hallucinating the victim on the stairs and Bern’s ghostly form. In the years that followed, Sharon became increasingly convinced that the dead figure on the stairs was her. She told as many people as she could about what had happened during that night, but that did nothing to save her.
Three years later, two weeks from giving birth, Sharon and her unborn child became victims of Charles Manson and his Manson Family cult. She was stabbed to death, and some crime reports state that she was hanged from a rafter in the living room. The house where she died stood just a mile away from where she had seen the ghostly premonition.
