The Day The Music Died
The National Transportation Safety Board has agreed to consider reopening investigation into what caused an Iowa plane crash that killed musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson and pilot Roger Peterson.
The board will review a letter from a New England pilot, L.J. Coon. Coon contends other factors could have contributed to the crash including weight and balance calculations and the rate of the plane’s climb and descent.
In 1959, the Civil Aeronautics Board ruled that the most likely cause of the crash was pilot error. Snow was listed as a secondary cause.
An initial response to Coon’s information will take about two months.
The Weasel And The Woodpecker
Talk about being in the right place at the right time and having a great eye for pictures!
Check out this image snapped by Martin LeMay, an amateur British photographer.
At first glance you would think it shows a weasel hitching a ride on the back of a red and green feathered woodpecker. But as the flight unfolded, the photographer noticed the weasel was more so looking to make the bird its lunch!
The woodpecker was able to escape unharmed, but the picture has gone viral, so much so that others are even having some fun with it too using their imaginations to make their own revisions.
