Am I Crazy or Is That a Ghost?

I like to think I can handle most scary things – psychos, serial killers, really aggressive dogs. But the one thing that scares the living hell out of me is the paranormal. The slightest hint of it and I’m running for the hills. And it’s not just movies like The Shining and The Ring. It’s campy and ridiculous things like Large Marge from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Ghostbusters, which I haven’t watched since the opening scene turned me into a neurotic, six year old mess back in 1988. It’s a sad state of affairs. I couldn’t even handle the trailers for Paranormal Activity. For weeks, I kept my eyes closed whenever I woke up in the middle of the night just to be sure I didn’t catch some specter standing over my bed.

So given my extreme fear of ghosts, I’m going to take an extreme leap in logic and assert that if anyone can identify them, it’s me. And I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what I’m seeing in the cockpit (left window) of this plane crash that happened outside of Cleveland yesterday.

Agree? Disagree? And no, batshit crazy is not an option here.

I'm scared, number 1I'm scared, number 2


  • Agreed… bona fide sighting.

  • I see him. He’s looking out the window at the rescue guys. Spooky.

  • That Paranormal Activity trailer is a mother. When the dude flies back through the door into the camera, it’s like… urgh. I don’t need to be seeing that.
    As for the ghost sighting, I’d say no. The clock changes time from 5:32 to 5:33 and the ghost is in the exact same position. I’d think it might jiggle a bit or something.

  • I’d say no but I also don’t know what the hell that is either. It’s not a body or a seat and the window is blown out, so it’s not a reflection. Also, the “head” moves a little from one picture to the next. First it’s looking to the side at the investigators and then it’s sorta looking down. Weird.

  • Nah it’s the light or somethin

  • What you are seeing there is that well known phenomenon – a figment of your scaredy cat imagination.
    So I’m guessing you didn’t find the Exorcist to be the most boring, unscary film ever then.

  • Nope. Not seeing it. But I’ll tell you what I am seeing ASAP – Paranormal Activity. I’ll give you a full report.

  • I’m with Maine on this one. This looks like a seat or other piece of equipment mixed with some haze and a bad photo. I’m not a believer, but it would be fantastic to be surprised by a real apparition. What’s to be scared of?

  • Fine fine. I am shamed into agreeing with all of you :-(
