TAHOE TODAY: Buckle up for another survivor’s story

Let’s go for a ride – here we go again. You see, I once had a fear of flying. I hated the bumps and the turbulence the plane shaking violently and not being in control of my own fate.

I should know better. I believe in fate. I believe we have a few choices in our life and in those choices life is meant to be.

After I finished my two-part column on George Lamson, I began to think of all the pain and suffering that he went through.

George is the sweetest guy. He is loving, kind and thoughtful. His dreams take him for a ride, yet he takes his life in such an easy manor.

We shared so much. I explained to him that one of my dreams long ago was to make a documentary of plane crash survivors. He wondered why. I didn’t have an answer, but now as I look at the whole picture, that dream is erased from my mind.

I explained he was not the first person I had met who survived a crash. There was Aloha Airlines Flight 243, the airline in Hawaii where the top ripped off the plane. My friend Michelle Honda was a flight attendant on board that flight, I told George.

George perked up with an interest; he wanted to know more.

Michelle was very special. She arrived in my home for a reading around 1986. At that time she was dating the producer of my show “ESP and You.” All she wanted to know was if she’d marry Phil. I held her watch, used psychometry and zoomed into the future.

I remembered the reading very well. I told Michelle something unique and different.

I told Michelle I saw her working for a long time for Aloha Airlines. I told her not to be alarmed, but that I saw an emergency situation with the plane. I knew she would be fine and that she would marry Phil.

On April 28, 1988, I was driving my car in Honolulu. My radio was blaring when I heard this special Bulletin: “Aloha Airlines flight 243 is having trouble from Hilo to Honolulu.”

I knew at that moment Michelle was on that flight.

I placed a call to Phil at the studio to confirm that it was her on Aloha Airlines. I was correct.

“Oh, my God,” I thought.

Michelle was in the back of the plane attending to all the passengers. She did not know who was flying the plane or if, in fact, it was on auto pilot. All Michelle knew was she had to keep the passengers safe and calm, and that she did.

Michelle was brave for weeks after the plane landed. She flew from Hilo to Honolulu to check on her passengers in the hospital, making sure each and every one of them was safe.

Michelle received many awards for the work that she did; she never felt that she deserved it.

As Michelle would say, “I did what I was trained to do.”

We had lunch. I touched her watch and went back in time and experienced everything she went through.

It was then I knew I never wanted to produce a documentary about survivors.

Michelle did marry Phil.
