PARIS HILTON has vowed never to set foot on another Learjet aircraft after her pals TRAVIS BARKER and ADAM ‘DJ AM’ GOLDSTEIN almost lost their lives in a plane crash last month (Sep08).
The socialite admits she occasionally flies to Las Vegas in the same type of plane Barker and Goldstein were onboard when it failed to clear an airport runway in South Carolina on 19 September (08).
Four people died in the tragedy and the two stars were hospitalized with severe burn injuries.
News of the horror crash stunned Hilton, who was onboard a plane bound for Milan, Italy at the time – and now she’s seriously rethinking her own travel plans.
She says, “I couldn’t believe it… I’m scared to go on small airplanes now.
Sometime in Vegas, I’ve been on that sort of plane and now I’ll never go on one again.”
Hilton reveals she has been texting her friend DJ AM ever since he arrived back in Los Angeles last week (beg22Sep08) – and she’s so relieved he’ll be OK.
She adds, “I love him, I’ve been friends with Adam for over 10 years now…
He’s such a good person… I wish him the best.”
