DECAPITATED Survives Plane Crash
As if the the Polish death metal band DECAPITATED, have not had a rough go of it the past few years, they have now survived a plane crash too. Four years ago almost to the day drummer Vitek passed away after bus accident in Russia.
Decapitated have canceled their performance at the U.K.'s Damnation Festival this weekend after surviving a crash landing. The musicians were flying back to their native country from the United States when the plane they were on landed on its belly at Warsaw airport after trouble opening its landing gear. None of the 230 people aboard were hurt in Tuesday's accident, which caused the closure of Fryderyk Chopin Airport to arrivals and departures for more than 30 hours.
The pilot told passengers four hours into the flight from Newark, New Jersey that the plane faced technical problems, said another female passenger. "The pilot addressed us a number of times and said we should follow instructions. Later, a flight attendant said there might be a fire, and at that point people began to get nervous and uncertain," she said.
