‘Air India’ Boeing 787 Loses A Window Within 24-Hours Of The Southwest 737 Fatal Mishap!

This was NOT as serious as the Southwest Boeing 737 window blowout incident. In this case the window per se did not break or get sucked out. It was the internal window panel that came off.

Nonetheless three passengers were injured from panels coming loose — all due to unexpected, intense turbulence.

Strange that we have two reports of Boeing jets having window issues within 24-hours, though in both cases Boeing really can’t be blamed — other than if the Southwest incident was due to metal fatigue. Actually that will probably be GE — who made the engine, as if GE didn’t already have enough problems.

Just wanted to make sure you heard of this incident.

Last Time Passover, Rather Than Easter, Fell On ‘April 1’.

Easter, this year (i.e., 2018), falls on Sunday, April 1. That is perfectly fine in that it is well within the March 22 to April 25 window for Easter.

The only this that is STRANGE, very strange, is that Easter has not fallen on April 1 in 62-years! Last time was in 1956. That is the LARGEST gap between Easter falling on the same day, in this case, April 1.

So, I was curious as to see when Passover has begun on April 1. The window for Passover is March 21 to April 20. So, again, April 1 is very much within the range. As you can see from the graphic the last time was in 1988 and before that 1950. That was a 38-year gap. The 2026 also happens after a 38-year gap. Neato.

The Fall Foliage 2015 in New Hampshire as I shared with you in numerous picture-studded posts was quite amazingly spectacular. Colors Gone Wild! It was a memorable year for vivid reds. Most agreed that it was one of the best years for foliage in a long time.

Well, though foliage is said to have peaked we, in the Lakes, are still drowning, daily, with delight, in color. Mainly yellows, oranges and amber. I can’t remember ever seeing this much YELLOW. Wow. Some of the country roads that I drive through are BUT tunnels of yellow. I took all the pictures below, on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, within a few hundred yards of the house — many from our yard. This is our view. It is amazing. I wanted to share it with YOU.
