Mays was on the US Airways flight from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Tampa on Saturday that had a hard landing at Tampa International Airport when the plane's front tire blew out. There were no reported injuries on Flight 1241, US Airways told CNN.

According to a local Tampa TV station, Mays said: "All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head."

I wonder if this had anything to do with his death?
CNN said He has not 'felt well' since the flight.

Sounds like a concussion to me.
What a sad way to go...
At the top of his career, and a freak accident like this happens.
I will no longer be Billy Mays for Halloween this year out of respect for the deceased.

Are you trying to be funny, or were you legitimately planning on being Billy Mays for Halloween? I think that's an excellent costume idea! If anything, you should be Mays for Halloween to celebrate the man's life... kind of like the Joker outfit celebrating Heath Ledger.

He really was at the peak of his career. Who would have thought a pitchmen would become a household name, a celebrity in a career not known for big stars. Sad news.

It would appear that being past the half-century mark is quite an achievement these days. Glad I've already done that! I like dressing up as a cop for Halloween. I almost became a Beach cop!

Yeah...I was serious, yesterday. Now, it would be in poor taste.

It certainly was for me. My mother died Saturday before last, and her memorial service was just this Saturday.

Thanks, Noland! It was expected and a fact of life for us all if you're lucky enough to outlive your parents. It's just that my mother was far from perfect, and there was a lot I had to work through with her before she died, so I don't feel terribly sad, just emotionally exhausted, but I'm glad I was able to come to terms with a lot of emotional baggage with her.
