Friday Night Funny

1

It is Friday the 13th, you have a ticket booking you on flight 666, and it is bound for HEL.

Are you going to board it?

Via wfaa.com:

In a bizarre Friday-the-13th coincidence, a flight bearing the number of the beast went straight to HEL today.

That’s right. Finnair Flight 666 took off from Copenhagen (CPH) and flew directly to Helsinki (HEL) on Friday.

Even better? The flight took off at 13:00 local time, according to Flightaware. The one-hour, 34-minute flight landed at HEL at 3:41 p.m. Helsinki time.

And it gets even wackier.

The Twitter account @Flightradar24, which tracks air traffic around the world, even pointed out the aircraft is 13 years old, according to its registration and serial number.

It may be less of a coincidence and more of a brilliant move by someone (who needs a raise) in Finnair’s scheduling department. Either way, it’s a fascinating alignment of oddities.

Next on the agenda: Dig through the list of ticketed passengers to find out if anyone named Jason was on Flight 666 on Friday the 13th.

You will find the whole story here, complete with video.

LOL – Somebody at Finnair has a seriously twisted sense of humor.

  1. Waaay back, some airports had slot machines that sold life insurance for one taking a flight. (If one noticed a pilot or crew member taking out insurance, avoid that flight.) The flight to Hel(l) would have kept those slot machines busy.

    • I recall those machines; what happened to them? Unprofitable from too many pay-outs? Maybe they inspired fear of flying…. I haven’t been inside an airport since 1987, I think, as I no longer fly to work in the lower 48.

  5. OK – this is weird. I formerly worked for an airline and used tail numbers as they related to leases on the aircrafts, etc., so this story was of interest to me. Anyway, some airlines use #’s only or as in the U.S. they use a combination of letters and numbers. Finnair uses letters only. So, I found the tail ID of the plane in question for this particular flight and it is “Finnair OHLXM”. For fun and because I’m a little weird (LOL), I ran it through the gemantria site and no kidding the gemantria equivalent for the tail number on the plane comes up as Son of Perdition. If that’s not strange, I don’t know what is.

    Really nothing ominous about Friday the 13th; unless you belong to the Knights Templar.

    • The superstition surrounding this day may have arisen in the Middle Ages, “originating from the story of Jesus’ last supper and crucifixion” in which there were 13 individuals present in the Upper Room…the night before his death on Good Friday. While there is evidence of both Friday and the number 13 being considered unlucky, there is no record of the two items being referred to as especially unlucky in conjunction before the 19th century.

  8. I flew on Delta from SLC Utah to Charlotte NC and back once,and though it was okay most of the way,but we had a couple of VERY “creative” landings-one in Atlanta,where we came in alongside the runway low enough to notice a farmer on his tractor wore glasses then hooked a very sudden u-turn and landed perfectly,the other was in SLC coming home when the turbulence coming down was so bad we had to scratch the landing and go around again;the second attempt was iffy,but he (the pilot) managed to make a smooth touch town and all was well.
    I’ll fly all day in helicopters,but as far as Commercial Airliners,no thanks. I’ve seen all those “Air Crash Investigations”,NOT gonna be ON one.
