My eldest daughter was born on the 7th of December, the same date that the Japenese bombed pearl harbour.
My eldest son was born 14 December, which is the same date that Prince Albert (Queen Victoria’s husband) died

I’ve done lots of dates on the website that goes with my book “On This Day in Tudor History”, see http://www.onthisdayintudorhistory.com/.

I share my birthday with Elizabeth of York (1466), but it was also the date of her death (1503), and Natalie Dormer – 11th February.

You also share my Cousin’s birthday Claire. The lucky sod spent his Christmas in California, and his New Year in Bali.

That was horrific, sept 11 Anyanka i agree. Probably what they mean, is that it was from a pilot error or aviation malfunction error, to make it worst air disaster. Rather than terrorism.
It actually was this, engineers fault. In the investigation following the Flight 191 disaster, the National Transportation Safety Board found that mechanics in Tulsa had taken a shortcut in removing the engines from the plane’s wing pylons for maintenance. That mistake two months before the crash had cracked an aluminum component in the pylon. Wear and tear widened the crack until the piece broke, and as the engine tore loose, it damaged electrical and hydraulic systems, a combination that left the plane unable to fly.

Mines all doom and gloom.
