Agony of the wife whose husband gave her his wedding ring and watch before boarding flight MH370...
Daily Mail UK ^

A father-of-two left his wedding ring and watch to give to his children in case something happened to him before boarding the missing Malaysia Airlines flight as he flew out to start a dream job in Mongolia.

Mechanical engineer Paul Weeks, 39, of Perth, Australia, was on the flight as he made his way to his first shift in a fly-in fly-out job.

His wife Danica has revealed how he left the objects with her to give to their two boys if something was to happen to him.

Mrs Weeks however said on Sunday that she was praying for a miracle as she waited for news of him.

She told 9News National in Perth: '(He said) "If something should happen to me then the wedding ring should go to the first son that gets married and then the watch to the second".'

The former soldier, who was born in New Zealand, moved his young family to Perth after their home in Christchurch was devastated by earthquakes.

Reminds me of Extortion 17 SEALS who kept telling their families (before getting ambushed), “Something weird is happening. I’ve updated my will.”

I remember back in the 70’s whenever my Dad travelled for business he always stopped at those little kiosks in the airport terminal and applied for the life insurance they offered prior to his flight.

Do they still have those? I haven’t noticed them for quite some time.

That's what jinxed the flight. One should never do that!

“as he flew out to start a dream job in Mongolia”. Those aren’t words you read every day.

Well, you can always get nailed by falling landing gear, blue ice, etc.

Years ago, there was an interesting article in the New American regarding KAL 007.This incident could be a repeat.

He took lots of pictures before he left, too. If he did that everytime it’d be one thing but it’d be a major hmmmm if this was a first. Wish “reporters” would report the whole story but this is the usual half ashed story that they’ve generated out these past few years.

Nope, as soon as it deviated that much, I wouldn't blame any country that shot it down.

What an optimistic way to head off to his “dream job”!

The article disputes that the plane was destroyed.

If it ever flies again not having been recovered by its owner, I would have no problem with any country shooting it down on sight.

I gather that you somehow have to fly. That's a shame, if so. I took my last flight in October 2000. Never again. For one thing, I will not be insulted by the TSA monkeys.

Same here. I have never enjoyed flying, just something you had to do to get there.

I used to fly all the time and enjoyed it. After 9/11 I flew about 5 times after that up to about 2004. I have not since and will not again for various reasons. I left a job that wanted me to travel to their India office.

I now carry everywhere I go, I don’t want to be molested by TSA, I don’t like the flying public compared to years ago, and I don’t think the new aged pilots as a whole are as good as the Vietnam era pilots who could actually fly the plane that have retired (not to mention all the foreign ones).

The flying part never bothered me it was all the other stuff that went with it.

I never liked any part of flying. Then as seats and leg room got smaller you always got seated next to an over sized person. Their fat rolls hang over the armrest (I know they can’t help it). Then it became unbearable. I am a small sized woman, 5’3” slightly plump, the seats are a perfect fit for me.

I had a very large woman say to me “we will both be more comfortable if I just lift this arm rest”. OH NO WE WON’T FAT GIRL! Was my reply (sort of). :)

The TSA was the least of my complaints.

Good for you!

I, too, carry wherever I go and one cannot carry on our beloved public transportation, so I say, screw ‘em, I’ll go by my private vehicle.
