That is messed up. I remember seeing the interview with him right after the Lidle crash saying he was almost on that flight.

Very strange, an ironic twist of fate.

Perhaps he felt like he was supposed to be on the plane with Lidle, and in an act of guilt, he crashed his private plane to complete what he thought was supposed to happen to him.

Or, could just be an eerie coincidence. You escape one fatal plane crash, but it sets in motion a sequence of events that leads directly to your death.

Man, there's no way I'd get on one of those little planes. They're too light and the maintenance requirements are nowhere near as stringent as the are on an airliner's passenger planes.

Man skips Lidle flight, dies in later plane crash
After avoiding fatal trip with Yankee pitcher, Californian meets same fate

MSNBC News Services
Updated: 2:59 a.m. ET Nov 17, 2006
A 68-year-old man who almost accompanied Cory Lidle on his fatal flight in New York City last month died in a plane crash in California on Tuesday.

According to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, Bob Cartwright, whose friend and personal pilot died in the plane crash that also killed the New York Yankees pitcher, and two other men died when their private plane crashed into the shoreline of Big Bear Lake, near Cartwright's mountain home in Sugarloaf, Calif.

Last month Cartwright's friend, Tyler Stanger, invited him to a playoff game between the Yankees and Detroit Tigers, but Cartwright couldn't make it. Lidle and Stanger died Oct. 11 when their plane crashed into an apartment building in New York City.

"I was supposed to be on that plane," Cartwright told friends at the time, according to the Daily Bulletin.

that's some freaky coincidence. Myabe they were on their way to see Sarah Connors mother, at her cabin at big bear lake. O:-)
Then the terminator jumped on the plane and made it crash.
