Lindsay Lohan and her galpal Samantha Ronson have taken to their blogs about this tragic event. And while not on “record,” they are the first to comment about the incident – most of Travis and DJ AM’s celebrity friends are still too shaken up to comment publicly…
please send your prayers out to adam goldstien and travis barker- along with the others lost in the plane crash…
it’s so scary to think that life can end so fast…we must all treasure each and every moment- and be thankful for what we have…
all my love..
And Samantha blogged:
my good friend adam (dj am) was in a plane crash last night, he was lucky to survive but is still in the hospital being treated for burns (so i read). i don’t really know what to say, it’s such horrifying news, but i was hoping you guys would please send him your best wishes/prayers because I don’t really know what else to do. also for travis barker, who was on the plane. four other people were on the plane and did not survive, i can’t even imagine the pain their families must be in. soooooo sad and i’m so sorry.
take good care of yourselves,
UPDATE #5: Sad, sad rumors have been formulating saying that Travis’s assistant Chris “Lil’ Chris” Baker was flying home to LA to be with his pregnant wife. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case – she’s not pregnant. However, he is recently married and left behind a 2-year-old son.
UPDATE #6: The Learjet that took off carrying Travis and DJ AM apparently had no mechanical issues, and the FAA flight records for the Learjet show that it had flown without incident less than hour before the crash. The jet was most recently in a hangar at Teterboro Airport in Teterboro, N.J.
According to the records, the jet made a routine one-hour, 26-minute flight from Teterboro to Columbia (S.C.) Metropolitan Airport Friday night, arriving at 11:08 p.m. And less than an hour later, the plane attempted to take off with its passengers.
“Something must have gone wrong on the ground,” says an FAA source. “It appears the plane had no mechanical issues.”
