Dj Am Denies Booking Deadly Plane Crash
ADAM 'DJ AM' GOLDSTEIN has dismissed reports he was booked on the doomed Continental Flight 3407 and escaped what would have been his second deadly plane crash in six months.
Internet reports on Wednesday (11Mar09) suggested the 35-year-old had a seat on the 12 February (09) flight from Newark, New Jersey, which crashed as it approached Buffalo Niagara International Airport. The tragic accident killed all 49 passengers and crew on board and one person on the ground.
It was claimed Goldstein cancelled at the last minute and made the journey by car instead.
But the star's publicist insists the rumours are false, stating, "DJ AM was never booked on the Continental flight that crashed last month, in fact he was performing that evening in NYC. That crash nor the one he was involved in, has prevented him from flying - although he has tremendously scaled back his east coast residencies to focus on his recovery."
Goldstein and his pal Travis Barker were the only survivors of a plane crash in South Carolina last September (08), which left four dead.
