  • Almost missed this Important "Remember When"

    On July 17, 1933, pilot Douglas " Wrong Way" Corrigan took off on a flight from New York to California, but ended up flying overseas to Ireland, due to what he claimed was a navigational error.

    Reminds me of the character on Gilligians Island. Wrongway Feldman.
    Guess they could not tell the basics, north, south, east, and west.

        Yes, I can see where one could become easily confused. History shouldn't have been so hard on the fella. . . .

                When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.
