I dreamed that I was in a big city.  I wasn't sure if it was San Francisco or Chicago.  I was walking down a major road in the middle of the city and looked up to realize a major airliner was preparing to make an emergency landing right down the street.  There was absolute pandamonium and panic as it came down the street.  The wings sheared off and there was major damage to the buildings along the road.

There was no emergency crew to speak of...as the plane came to a stop and broke into pieces people surrounded them to help  passengers who were frantically jumping off.

I looked down the street and saw another plane getting ready to come in.

This went on for hours, big planes, little planes... some planes going up in flames... some people only had time to throw babies off into the crowds before their planes exploded.

I found that over half of the airports in the US had been blown up/ taken out of comission in terrorist attacks and planes were coming in anywhere they could.

It was frightening and numbing.  Things finally seemed to calm down a bit around dusk and I went around the city trying to find friends and family and find a place to stay.  There were people EVERYWHERE, some huddling in alleys, it seemed all the hotels were full and restaurants were staying open so people could have a place to come inside.

It was terrifying.

According to http://dreammoods.com

Airplane Crash
To dream that a plane crashes, suggests that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself. Your goals may be too high and are impossible to realize. You are in danger of having it come crashing down. Alternatively, your lack of confidence, self-defeating attitude and self-doubt toward the goals you have set for yourself is represented by the crashing airplane; you do not believe in your ability to attain those goals. Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.

Was this explanation written before or after terrorism became the FEAR of the century? Because I get the feeling that the terrorism (and/or the government inability to stop terrorism and/or mass death and panic) is more the theme here.

I've been wrong before but...
That site uses (mostly) the same interpretations as the "Dreamer's Dictionary" By Stern Robinson. (I have this one and it's a darn entertaining read) Acording to Amazon.com, it was published in 1986. Long before the towers came down.
Even if you remove the air plane completely and consider the looser interpretations of dreams of falling and dreams of flying combined, it suggests that there is a sense of ambition and accomplishment being hindered by insecurity or a fear of failure. Also taking into consideration, the dreamer. I don't know anyone who works as hard, has the ability and success that Jett has achieved and yet remains as humble and untouched by vanity or ego.
It doesn't take much for the subconscious to connect the dots to the violence one has been exposed to in our time, but I just don't see terrorism or mass death as being a major factor in the dreamer's life in this instance.

Re: I've been wrong before but...
I dunno...I woke up and wondered if I had been listening to too much talk radio.

I wish I was as productive as you think I am. I was talking with BJ a few nights ago and we were both bemoaning our status.

Back when I was emotionally miserable I was crazy, crazy productive. Now I'm emotionally happy and I feel like I'm producing tbhttt.

Maybe I am afraid of failure but I need to really shake off this lethargy and get crackin'.

Re: I've been wrong before but...
yeah, I could sing a few bars of that too. Discipline isn't easy when you're not trying to avoid something. I'm never so eager to do housework as I am when I'm supposed to be at the gym!
