Cor Pan facebook 380x408 MH17: This is what it looks like in case it goes down

Cor Pan’s Facebook post

 

 

 

It started as a Facebook joke.

“This is what it looks like in case it goes down” says his post.

And in a tragic turn of events it did.

A Dutch man who posted this image on his Facebook page is thought to be one of the passengers on flight MH17 which crashed overnight in Ukraine killing 295 people.

In a reference to the missing flight MH370 which has never been found Cor Pan posted the picture of his Malaysian Airlines plane just moments before his flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur departed.

Whilst not yet verified if he was on the passenger list, according to the Huffington Post, Facebook suggests it is genuine – confirming it was taken at Schiphol Airport near Amsterdam and showing it was taken shortly before the flight took off at 12:15pm local time.

His Facebook page has now been flooded with tributes from friends.

Saul Jonk added: “Goosebumps …. rest in peace COR. unimaginable”.

Its sad that 295 people died on the plane.

But some people can sense what is going to happen to a plane train boat etc.

It reminded me of the move called destination movie.

But wouldnt you think if he new that something was going to happen to not to go on the plane and stop all the other passengers to. But then again he wouldnt know how to explain it to the official cause he wasnt sure that the people where going to shoot the plane.

Yes, but those details were not available at the time this article was written.

 Point is, he made a joke, due to the airline, because of the missing flight from months ago. It is sad to me that this ended up being so prophetic.
