Organic – Classmate Who Died in 1998 Plane Crash

Family loses four in crash

The article linked from the headline above is about the passing of four members of the Daleo family, who died in a plane crash on May 15th, 1998 in southeastern Wisconsin. Two brothers and their sister, all in their 40’s, were killed along with the woman’s 12-year-old son.

That son was a kid I went to the same middle school as. I didn’t really know him well, as he was a grade younger than me, but we did share a gym class at one point, and both played in the school band.

Naturally, people tend to have fonder memories of those who we’ve lost than we may have actually experienced. But I can honestly say there was something special about him. Not only was he one of the smartest kids I knew, but he had a cheerful personality and didn’t seem to rub anyone the wrong way.

His name was Michael Bay, and his mother’s name was Kathleen. This alone has some synchronicity in it for me – my middle name is Michael, and my mother’s name is Kathleen.

This occurred in 1998. The other noticeable synchronicity is that a man named Michael Bay happens to be one of the most successful film directors of all-time. Prior to the Transformers series, Bay’s highest-grossing film was Armageddon, which was released in 1998.

The director Michael Bay would later direct a film called Pearl Harbor, which was released in 2001, the same year as the 9/11 attacks, which was my generation’s “Pearl Harbor” event. Pearl Harbor and 9/11 were both a series of plane crashes.

12-year-old Michael’s full name was Michael Thompson Bay, which makes it very interesting that he died in a plane crash.

"Michael Thompson Bay" = 907 (Jewish)

Kathleen Bay was born on a date with Primary numerologies of 97 and 43:(3) + (17) + (19) + (58) = 97 and (3) + (17) + 1+9+5+8 = 43

Michael Bay and Plane crash both = 43 and 56

Michael was born 40 weeks, 3 days after me
The 43rd Prime number is 191

"Michael Bay" = 191 (Reverse Ordinal)


9/11 Relations

191 has the same digits as 911. The crash was reported to have occurred at 9:10, but I can’t help but wonder if it may have been 9:11:The plane took off, turned south and crashed at about 9:10 a.m. near LaGrange, about 35 miles southwest of Milwaukee, killing the four victims instantly.

"La Grange" = 191 (English Extended)

The crash was 3 years, 119 days before the 9/11 attacks:

The 1993 World Trade Center bombing was 3119 days before 9/11:

The plane crash in La Grange, WI was 173 weeks before 9/11:

Kathleen Bay was born on March 17th, or 17/3.

La Grange, WI and Plane crash both = 97, 52, 173, and 56


“22” Coding

There’s more personal synchronicity here. As mentioned, Michael’s mom’s name was Kathleen, which is also my mom’s name. I have three older half-brothers on my mom’s side, the youngest of whom was born on May 15th – the same date Michael and Kathleen perished. My brother was born in ’76. Kathleen was born on the 76th day of the year:

"Airplane" = 76 (English Ordinal)

The crash occurred on my brother’s 22nd birthday:

Michael died 2 months, 2 days after his birthday:

"Crash" = 22 (Full Reduction)

Interestingly, I thought to run these numbers 22 years later in 2020.

The 22nd Prime number is 79

Michael Bay died a span of 2 months, 20 days (or 79 days) after the only total eclipse of 1998:

Michael Bay = 79 Ordinal and 479 Jewish

479 is the 92nd Prime number

"Director" = 92 (English Ordinal)


“Armageddon” Riddle

Michael died less than two months before the release of Armageddon.

"Armageddon" = 46 (Full Reduction)

Kathleen was a span of 40 years, 60 days old:

The 46th Prime number is 199

Director Michael Bay was almost exactly 1099 weeks old when Michael was born:

This syncs up with the Ordinal value of the one I knew.

Michael Thompson Bay = 199 Ordinal and 82 Reduction

"Armageddon" = 82 (English Ordinal)


Michael died 47 days before the film’s release. The date of the crash had Primary numerologies of 47 and 137:(5) + (15) + 1+9+9+8 = 47 and (5) + (15) + (19) + (98) = 137

The family was on their way to Washington, D.C.

"Washington, D.C." = 137 (English Ordinal)

137 is the 33rd Prime number

"Michael" = 33 (Full Reduction)

Director Michael Bay was 33 years old when Michael died:

Michael died a span of 303 days before his 13th birthday:

The director had Primary birth numerology of 103:(2) + (17) + (19) + (65) = 103


The “Plane” Riddle

Director Michael Bay was born in ’65
The 65th Prime number is 313
Young Michael’s birthday was on 3/13

Director Michael Bay was 21 years, 24 days old when Michael was born:

Plane = 21, 24, and 87

Michael’s death fell 87 days after the director’s birthday:
