Roey Rosenblith was coming home from his work in Uganda to St. Louis for a visit.
He flew from Africa to Amsterdam, then the plan was to land in Detroit and catch his final flight to St. Louis.
But as we all know, that flight had an incident when a Nigerian man tried to explode a device and bring down the plane.
Rosenblith blogged on The Huffington Post about his experience on the flight and talked with News 4 Sunday evening.
He truly thought he was going to die when the fire broke out.
He'll be flying back to Uganda in a few weeks, and he says he'll try not to think about what almost happened ... but who could blame him?
