This. Is. Horrifying!!!

Paris Hilton appeared on the Egyptian prank series Ramez Wakel el-Gaw recently and was a passenger on a very elaborate "crashing" plane.

In the ep, Paris thinks she's on the way to Dubai for the opening of a new hotel, with no clue that she's the butt of a terrifying joke!

The plane then encounters a "problem" and Ramez Galal, the host of the show, plays it up to get Paris going.

And get Paris going, it did!

The heiress freaks out — like we all probably would — about the plane going down, only to find out it's all a prank.

Video of the incident made its way to YouTube very briefly, but was deleted on copyright grounds.

An now we're hearing Paris is furious with the pranksters and wants to sue!

A Solo Plane Belonging To Titanic Composer James Horner Crashed And The Unidentified Pilot Was Found Dead

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

A solo plane registered to Oscar-winning composer James Horner crashed near Santa Barbara on Monday morning, and the pilot was found dead at the scene.

While it hasn't been confirmed that the body belonged to the Titanic musician, authorities are unaware of whom else could have been operating the plane.

The pilot was the only person on board when it crashed at around 9:30a.m., and it is unclear what caused the accident.

Authorities are having difficulty determining if it was actually the 61-year-old in the wreckage, because the plane started a brush fire upon impact and there were practically no remains.

Our hearts are with James' family at this time.

Here's what the Chicago Tribune reported:

"[The] Cessna 414 had left the Indianapolis airport around 11 p.m. and hit heavy fog over central Illinois, according to Scott Barrows, the father-in-law of the owner of the plane, Scott Bittner, who was among those killed."

We can't even imagine what their families and friends are going through.
