FUN WITH TRISKAIDEKAPHOBIA
(Traveling anywhere today? Avoiding ladders and black cats? )
I wasn’t sure if this was Fake News or not. You know, “click bait.” But I was finished with the news and thought I’d have a little fun. At the Daily Mail! – always an entertaining, sometimes informative place to visit (as long as you don’t “look to the right”!)
So, here’s a screen shot from FlightAware of a passenger flight today —
Copenhagen to Helsinki, on Finnish Airways. Flight # 666. On Friday the Thirteenth. Going to HEL, according to the flight controllers. (That would be: Helsinki.) It took off at fifteen minutes past noon. That would be the thirteenth hour of the day; 13:15
Oh, and the airplane itself is 13 years old!
I didn’t really really trust the Daily Mail article so I went to FlightAware and looked it up myself. Here’s the info from that page, just after it landed:
