Did a Cubana Flight 9646 victim speak to my audience through a Ouija board this past Saturday night?
Plane crashes are all the rage right now so I wasn’t surprised when the two audience volunteers using the Ouija board got the word PLANE right out of the chute and then the planchette kept pointing to the sun and moon icons on the board’s lower corners (sky symbols). Can you say, subconscious ideomotor impulse?
However, the board then proceeded to spell out apparent gibberish after the word PLANE. I stress apparent. Bear with me. A selection of the numbers and phrases it kept spelling out over and over:
6 TO M (“Could this mean 6 2 M?” an audience member asked.)
I quickly shut down this seeming dud of a seance to wrap up the show and get my audience outta that crypt-like coal cellar and into some fresh air. The next day I received an email from my die-hard (see how I did that?) fan Joe about Cubana flight 9646: “I made a small leap in assuming, at least, that ‘6TOM’ might also be ’62M,’ so I did a web search and found http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=19890903-1. Things to note:
“Plane Registration #CU-T1281
Date of Accident: 3 September 1989
Aircraft type: Ilyushin-II-62M
Aircraft crashed immediately after takeoff from Havana-Jose Marti International Airport (HAV/MUHA).”
I don’t know what to say. You tell me. This seeming Ouija gibberish turned out to be non-cryptic, decidedly specific, and left me floored.
Likewise the spirit box, which was running simultaneous to the Ouija session, had little to say, but what it did say — what they said, as there were 3 distinct voices — was equally brief and pointed.
Here are the only discernible words out of 3-and-half minutes of static. As usual I have slowed them down to 50%, maintained the original pitch, and applied mild noise reduction:
“How’s that for remarkable?”
“Who didn’t hurt?”
