Pilots Heard Noises Before Barker/DJ AM Crash

8/7/2009 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The pilot of the plane that crashed with DJ AM and Travis Barker on board heard a series of strange noises just moments before the fatal crash.

Pilots Heard Noises Before Barker/DJ AM Crash

According to a log of intra-cockpit communication, one of the pilots can be heard saying "What was that?" The other pilot responds, "I don't know. We're not going though."

The NTSB released the log today, along with several photos of items recovered at the scene, but is still months away from issuing a final report with the probable cause of the crash.

The plane crashed as it was trying to abort takeoff from Columbia, SC just before midnight on September 19, 2008. Four of the six people on board were killed.

The pilot, Jim Bland, was a close friend of mine and his presence is missed. I know Jim and he was a perfectionist in opposition to a fly by the seat type. Being a retired cop, as was Jim, you learn that you have to make a split second decision frequently in some situations, and the Monday morning quarterbacks take months and years to analyze and criticize. Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes unfortunately you don't, and the results do not work out as desired. Imagine if "Sully" would have hit a boat in the Hudson when he put down the U.S. Air flight in the Hudson. The concern should be for the deceased, their families and their loved ones.

Chrissy in Texas is dog meat.


And the pilots should be sued, driving a plane drunk is libelous.

Suing dead people is like having sex with a donkey. It's just not right. I hope these guys don't get a dime. I'm sure the families of the dead are still hurting, yet these two money grubbers are going to pour salt into their wounds. DJ's and drummers are a dime a dozen in Los Angeles. The only reason most people know who these two guys are is because of the accident.

To #37 mr.kool - Just how was travis murdered, you idiot. He's alive!! I suppose if Arnold didn't push hard enough on the throttle and crashed, he would have sued and imaginary airplane company. It's a movie you stupid idiot!! You have some nerve calling other dummies.
