Apart from being my birthday - is Groundhog day famous for any aeronautical events?

3 Feb 1998 - NATO jet crashes into cable car wire in Italy killing 20 - and yes

Hmmm, not sure about the aviation significance there. Maybe he thought he was flying at the time :confused:

I was born on this day too, now that's gotta be an aeronautical event.

What's the chances of so many Prooners having the same birthday (AND it being today). Statistically, any group of 40 people will have two people with the same birthday, but not necessarily a specific day.


I believe that 6MHC is having a birthday about now.
