An American crewman who was killed when the plane he was flying plummeted out of the sky and violently crashed to earth in Afghanistan had predicted he would die in ball of flames.
Seven American crew members of a private cargo plane, bound for Dubai, were killed yesterday when the plane crashed shortly after take-off from Bagram air base near the Afghan capital of Kabul.
Maintenance crew Gary Stockdale of Romulus, Michigan, who was killed in the tragic crash, said that flying was a huge risk, his older brother said.
Glenn Stockdale, 55, said: ‘He always said it was dangerous,’ NBC reported.
‘He would always say, “You either will die in a car crash or a ball of flame in a plane”.’
