Former Squadron Leader, believes an ‘angel’ helped him to save the lives of his aircrew

Pilots, are know for keeping their cool in 'difficult circumstances'. Self-sufficient and logical they are not prone to fanciful ideas.  But yet one pilot, also a Falklands veteran. claims that an 'angel' guided him and his aircrew out  ofpoor weather conditions, where they were in real danger of crashing into a mountainside.

Former squadron leader, Tom Rounds ( a flight navigator at the time of the incident) believes that an angel's voice in his head helped him to save the lives of his aircrew when their plane entered thick fog.

He said, that the celestial voice,  led to him ordering the pilot to change direction just before it could have struck a mountain.

The team had been taking part in a routine low level flying exercise 250ft above ground level which took them from RAF Lyneham, through Wales and the West Country and back to Salisbury Plain, where they were due to drop a resupply load.  

Down at 250ft, their flight was plagued with low cloud and rain, which meant they had to keep climbing up to a safe altitude when they could not see well enough what was ahead.

At one point they were flying at this height, along the south edge of a valley, near Lampeter. 

Even though the cloud cover had been sporadic, it suddenly became impossible for them to see, so at 280mph and still at 250ft, they were flying blind. 

Squadron Leader Rounds said: "At some point I felt an overwhelming urge to climb the aircraft away from our then height of 250ft.  The hairs on my neck stood up. It was almost as though something was screaming in my head to take action immediately. 

"I duly screamed at the pilot to initiate a hard climb and rapid turn left, as I believed our safety was to be had out over the low lying land to our north over the valley."

Just as he yelled at the crew, the Radar Altimeter, an electronic device that transmits constantly and tells the crew the actual height of the aircraft directly above the ground, began shrieking. 

He added: "We knew at that point that we were now less than 250ft from the ground despite the aircraft attitude being at over 50 degrees, banked to the left, and climbing.  We were now flying parallel to the northern slope of the mountain.

"We then watched mesmerised as the indicated height on the Radar Altimeter continued to fall and reached at just 50ft - where it stayed.  I absolutely believed the plane was about to crash straight into the mountainside and that I had now consigned us, as a crew, to the statistics book of another RAF aircraft lost on a training sortie.

"I, for one, will never forget that flight.  What might have happened had I shouted my instructions say five or even 10 seconds later?

"Was that my guardian angel who spoke to me urging I take immediate action?  I don't suppose I shall really know for certain but during a quiet moment, I like to believe it was." What do you think? Do you believe that an 'angel has helped 'save your life or that of a family member?

An Angel Saved My Life ‘People share the times that angels have helped them (and even saved their life)

The 'belief in angels' is often discussed on online forums, and recently a reader on social news site, Reddit, posed the question to others, by asking whether anyone had had a true life angel experience. In response, many have taken to the thread to share how their own ‘guardian angels’ have prevented disasters and even saved their lives.

Although many said they had previously been sceptical of the notion of angels, after their ‘encounters,’ they have been converted to believe.

For example, Reddit user brasil16, said that him and a friend would have drowned if it hadn’t been for their encounter with an angel.

He described how he had been swimming in the ocean near a beachfront hotel in Northern Brazil, when the pair had been swept up in the strong current.

He said: “All of a sudden, this guy runs into the water, picks me up, and before I know it, we’re on the shore. I turned to thank him, he was just gone,”

Another person had an equally strange moment when they received prayer from a nurse after the death of a friend.

Here are a few more fascinating stories of 'angel encounters' from other users.

 


 

Celestial skies: Angel with Halo sighted in Slovakian Skies

A woman playing with her children in the countryside was stunned to look up and see the shape of an angel perfectly-formed in the clouds – complete with halo.

Andrea Dikantova, who works as a nurse, was enjoying a warm summer day out in the fields, where she was showing her children how to fly a kite.

But the 36-year-old said she ‘couldn’t believe’ what she was seeing when she looked up into the skies of Gerlachov, Slovakia, and saw an image of an angel.

‘I glanced up when something caught my eye and just could not believe what I was seeing. It was a textbook image of an angel right there in the heavens,’ she said.

I instantly told the kids to stop trying to fly the kite and to have a look. I said ‘look children, there is an angel.’

Ms Dikantova grabbed her phone to take an image and said she hoped by sharing the picture she might ‘spread a little good cheer’.

Youngster ‘saved by the arms’ of an Angel, after fall from sixth floor : True Life Angel Story.

In Dubai, in 2012, six-year old Dunia Reda, was living on the 6th floor of a high-rise apartment block with her family. Late one night when she should have been asleep, the youngster got out of bed to watch older children playing in the street far below. But little Dunia wasn’t content to just to watch!   She also wanted to chat to the children too, some of who she knew, so she unlocked the window to call down to them. Unfortunately in her excitement to say ‘hi,’ to her friends, she leaned over too far. The next moment to her horror she found herself tumbling out, and plummeting towards the hard concrete below. But instead of a tragic outcome came a miracle!

 A report in the Gulf News, quoted Dunia as saying that she believes that she was 'saved by angel who broke her fall'.

Dunia said: "I was falling fast at first, and very scared, but then I felt the fall slow, and someone held me like I was a baby. I didn't drop as hard as I thought I would."

Miraculously Dunia was still conscious after hitting the ground, and was rushed to hospital. Although she had several injuries, none where live-threatening and she went on to make  a full recovery. She said at the time, that she did not see "who saved her" but added: "it must have been an angel".

Her father Reda agreed: "I believe her, it was divine mercy. It was her Guardian Angel. She keeps telling me about it, she is very excited."

The Smiling Angel of Reims

There are thousands of angel statues throughout the world, but for me, one of the most stunningly beautiful has to be the Smiling Angel, also known as the Smile of Reims. This is a stone sculpture at the Cathedral of Reims, in France. It was originally carved in the mid 1200s.  Her beaming smile certainly makes her stand out from the more serene expressions of the 'angels sculptures' that stand besides her. 

Whenever, I have come across her online whilst doing 'angel research' for this blog, I can't help but smile back. I feel that this is an angel 'who has a sense of humour' and who encourages those who look upon her not to let life 'get you down' as there is 'always something to be 'grateful and happy for'.

And on the latter point, the Smiling Angel  has her own interesting and inspiring story. During the dark days of World War 1, the Cathedral was unfortunately subjected to intense bombardment from German forces. During the attack it sustained around 300 shell bursts, which caused fires to rage inside the building and also hit several of the statues including the lovely Smiling Angel too. This  resulted in the head of the carving being broken in several places after falling from a height of four meters.

However, all was not lost, as Abbot Thinot, who worked there collected the pieces and stored them for safe keeping in the cellars of the Archbishop of Reims. These were discovered the following year by the architect Max Sainsaulieu . He was shocked by the scale of the destruction and went to the French press. As a result the Smiling Angel  became an icon for French wartime propaganda, as a symbol of "French culture destroyed by German barbarity".

Thankfully after the war, the original fragments were moulded and preserved in the Musée national des Monuments Français.  And then the already famous sculpture was  restored and finally put back in place in 1926, to once again take up her role of warmly welcoming visitors to the Cathedral with her slightly mischievous  smile.

Is this the photograph of a Guardian Angel watching over car crash victim?

In 2015, a horrific car crash occurred in Abbeville County,  Louisiana, and almost cost a man his life.

However, the victim's family firmly believe that a guardian angel was watching over their loved one as the crash happened and saved his life.  They say that angel can be seen clearly in a photograph (left), taken shortly after the crash by a passing pastor who witnessed the accident and stopped to help.

Lynn Wooten, a cousin of the crash victim, said at the time: "You can see on the picture, on the right-hand side that the angel looks like he's actually knelt with his hands up praying over him,"

That guardian angel is one reason that she believes her cousin is still alive today.

“If you had seen the state of the car you would think nobody could come out of it alive, but we believe that the 'angel' stayed with him to give comfort and spiritual strength until physical help arrived.” she said.  Pictures taken at the scene show a mangled Ford Explorer. 

In a Facebook post at the time, Pastor Michael Clary who witnessed the accident said: “The vehicle stared rolling over. I counted four times before it hit the ditch then went airborne. Then it bounced  against a large pine. And then  I saw someone come out passenger side window. When I got to where it was, I was shocked to see a young man on the ground curled in a ball. The whole time this was happening I was in prayer mode asking God to protect this person.”

Ms Wooten said  her cousin was then airlifted to hospital, where he was treated for a punctured lung in intensive care.  He also broke his collar bone and several ribs, but went on to make a full recovery.

She added: “Our family strongly believes in guardian angels and that one with him at the time protecting him. My cousin was lucky he survived,”

She said she and the family were incredibly grateful that at the time of the accident, that there were two guardian angels looking after her cousin - the one captured in the photo and also Pastor Clary, who was there to witness the accident on the rural highway and summon help.

Was Car Crash Baby Saved By The Voice of An Angel?

Was Car Crash Baby Saved By The Voice of An Angel?
It was an amazing story of survival that made headlines around the world in 2015

 

An 18-month-old baby girl was found alive in an overturned car, 14 hours after it plunged into a freezing river in Spanish Fork, Utah.

 

Emergency responders at the scene, including police officer Tyler Beddoes, said afterwards that they heard a woman's voice yelling "Help me!" from inside the car. 

 

In a police video of the rescue, one of the officers can be heard yelling back, "We're helping, we're coming!”ead Full Article

 

With the car partially submerged in the icy waters, they found little Lily Groesbeck, alive but unconscious and suffering from hypothermia, but her mother had sadly died in the crash. 

 

Since Lily's mother, Lynn, had died instantly in the accident , the cries for help were never explained. 

 

In interview Officer Beddoes, has said the voice he and the others heard was not from a living person, and he has now written about the dramatic series of events in a new book, Proof of Angels.
"It was an adult woman's voice. A calming voice," he said, adding that several other officers at the scene heard the same thing.

 

"When we flipped the car over, there was no other explanation for it, other than an angel. There was no one else there," said Officer Beddoes.

 

Amazingly, Lily suffered no lasting effects from the traumatic crash, Officer Beddoes explained.

 

"She's fantastic. A normal two-year-old," he said.

 

He added that he decided to write the book about the amazing rescue because the experience led him to rediscover his faith in God.

 

He recalled that his faith had been shaken after responding to the scene of a quadruple-murder, which sadly included two deceased children.

 

"When this happened, it really changed everything for me. I wondered why I ever doubted Him," said Beddoes.

 

While Officer Beddoes and his colleagues story was were met with scepticism or labelled crazy
over their claims, a recent survey found that 31 per cent of people in the  UK believe in angels and five per cent claim to have seen or heard one.
In the US, 69 per cent believe and almost a third say they have seen or heard
one.
 A number of famous ‘angel’ encounters have been reported in the past. 
Ron DiFrancesco, a financial trader at New York’s World Trade Centre, was on
the 84th floor during the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001, when he felt someone take his
hand and lead him to safety through the burning building.
He was the last person to leave the tower before it collapsed.
World War I submariner Harry Stoker told how he and both his companions saw
another male figure travelling with them as they escaped from a Turkish Prisoner of War Camp.

German scientist Stephanie Schwabe, mislaid her safety line while she was
cave-diving in 1997 and panicked thinking she was trapped and would die. But then as her panic worsened she suddenly noticed has the cave growing lighter and she heard a gentle voice from nowhere calming her down and she swam to safety.

What do you think? Do you believe that the officers at the scene of this rescue were guided by the 'voice of an angel' to save the baby girl? Have you ever been saved or helped by an angel? Leave your comments below.

 

 

 
 

Don’t worry about your loved ones – angels are watching over them

Everyone has a Guardian Angel continuously watching over them, and that definitely includes your loved ones too.

Angel guru Doreen Virtue, advises that instead of worrying about your friends or family members, that you should simply ask for additional angels to be by their side. And the moment that you do so, your request will be granted.

The greater the number of  angels surrounding you or someone you care about, the more a person is insulated by love. This force shelters you and those you care about against life's emotional storms, helping to promote happiness and safety in their lives.

Thought for the day
My loved ones are watched over by God and the angels, and I give my cares and worries to heaven. Thank you, for watching over my loved ones in particular..... (name of loved one/s)
