Another twist to this story is that at exactly the time of impact my grandfather (father's father) wakes up in the middle of the night and calls my uncle. He told my uncle that something terribly wrong has happened to my parents. My uncle calls the military base my father was based at, and after a couple of more calls he speaks with someone that was knowledgeable about flight 923. My uncle was told that the flight departed and that they were scheduled to arrive in Frankfurt at (specific time) in the morning. They had no idea of what had happened. Our family, has always been amazed at this tangible fact. I believe there must be another dimension that we cannot explain bringing these kind events and experiences. I was born 9 months after this accident. My parents adopted me, and my mother passed away (cancer) when I was finishing high school. I found my birth mother in the early 90's. It's been a beautiful life. I know I will be shaking hands with Toby one day in the future, in this world or the next one to come. Thanks Toby.
