Surviving a Plane Crash

Author: MarkF

My father, Methodist missionary Tony Fadely, flew from Monrovia to the Kru coast to train Liberian church planters. The air taxi for his return flight was horribly overloaded with people and cargo — there were even wooden benches in the aisle to squeeze in more passengers! The plane took off and managed to clear the trees, but as it struggled to gain altitude, it suddenly dipped to the left, and my father was looking straight down the wing at the ground. The pilot screamed, “We’re not going to make it!” But my father heard a voice clearly say, “You will not die,” and it felt like a giant hand righted the plane and guided it to a safe crash landing. Everyone walked away with minor injuries.

    That’s amazing. I so remember the bush planes. We had no other way to get anywhere but bush planes and the Liberian DC9 that came once a month. We used the small ones to give tests up country in the bush.
    To say God was with your father that day is an understatement! He was with us all the time!!!
