In 1961, a Boeing 707 airplane hurtled while going from New York City to Belgium. 73 people died in the catastrophic air crash. This crash, sadly, took the whole U.S. National figure skating team, which was on its way to the World Figure Skating Championships in Prague. The group seems happy to be heading to its destination.
The Sabena Flight 548 started from Idlewild International Airport and plunged at Zaventem Airport in Brussels on Feb 15th, 1961. A total of 73 people were killed: 72 were onboard and 1 on the ground.
"Benjamin Button" Syndrome?
So, take a quick glimpse at this snapshot and let us know what you see. We’ll wait. Right?!
At first glance, it looks like this toddler has the face of an old man, and it’s really creeping us out! Thank God it’s just an optical illusion, and all we’re seeing is the back of the baby’s head in a hat, and the man’s face that’s holding him, turned slightly sideways. Phew! Some optical illusions really do a number on the mind, huh?
Water Ski Adventure
The guy is wearing water skis designed to be a bit larger, thus safer than normal ones. Though he seems to be flying and not skiing, I’m sure he experienced one heck of a jerk. Although, the scene looks set for a definite collision, fortunately, there wasn’t one. He landed alright, but not without a few injuries.
It seems like the driver of the speed boat was out to get revenge on the poor guy who was attempting to have some fun during his water skiing adventure.
The Infamous Hindenburg
In 1937, the German passenger airship called Hindenburg burst into flames and was destroyed in New Jersey. 36 people were killed in the accident. This photo shows the airship a little before tragedy struck.
On May 6th, 1937, the Hindenburg tragedy took place in Manchester Township in New Jersey in the United States. There were a total of 97 people onboard the aircraft.
No, Not My Cake!
When all you want to do is sit down on your birthday and nom-nom-nom on some delicious birthday cake, but the cake has other plans. Her face says it all: “NO, NOT MY CHEESECAKE!” We definitely feel for her. But at least she doesn’t have to work quite so hard at the gym this week.
Plus, she was bouncing back and forth between the cheesecake and the chocolate pie, anyways. This was just the universe’s way of telling her that she should have ordered the chocolate in the first place! Waiter!
