PSA Flight 182 Crash Site

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  PSA Flight 182 Crash Site

In 1978, an airplane crashed into this neighborhood killing 144 people. A local highschool and airport hangar were temporary morgues after the accidents and are also said to house a weird feeling inside of them. Some people who live at the site complain about knocking sounds, objects disappearing, and voices of children that aren’t there.

  1. I lived there when I was 18… right in the spot it crashed. It’s definitely haunted. We had no idea that the crash happened and didn’t find out until later on and we understood the experiences we were having much better. It’s actually not until now (I’m 34) that I just google mapped and found a You Tube video of ariel footage form when it happened that I realized that our house was in that exact location.

    • At first I was not understanding what was meant here on the comment,, then I realized what you are meaning. I thought you were 18 and living when the crash happened, then says you’re 34 now, I was like, how can that be? I was 12 in 1978 and now 54. Wow that was 42 years ago!!!
      Anyways my mistake of comprehension here. Lol.
      I always did have low comprehension grades in school, yet I could read aloud from a book better than most students. If you asked me what I just read, I had no clue!
      The crash happened in 1978. I remember the day very well. I was in PE class in the 7th grade at La Mesa Junior High School. After putting on our uniforms for class we assembled at the basketball ball courts for roll call. It was a perfect day, not a cloud and visibility was at its best. I seen the smoke in the sky where the collision occurred. Did not see the planes. It was only seconds ago that it occurred. After PE class was over and went to my next class, the staff were bringing in televisions on carts into the classroom to play the news as it was live news right then. Very tragic day for such a beautiful day.

    That doesn’t even make sense , if you were 18 at the time of the crash , you wouldn’t be 34 in 2018 . And also when this crash happened the debris was everywhere and people were ordered to to stay indoors , kids were sent home from school early ., I don’t believe you . And think you are lying ., I was there and only 5at the time and in 2018 I was in my mid 40s .

  3. My wife Lynn died on 182. I don’t have any contact with her that I can say is her for certain. I’ve only been at the site 1 time (2008) but I want to know if anyone has actually seen any paranormal activity. I want to know if she is there, they never found her (or the majority of the passengers).
