Scenario #1

Many of you will remember this one.

Scenario #2

On October 4, 1960, my father turned from the ladder against the back of our house after hearing a bang. He saw a geyser rising out of Boston Harbor. When the gushing water settled, he realized it was a plane. Eastern Airlines flight 375 crashed on takeoff from Logan Airport. The cause: bird strike. Sixty-two of the seventy-two passengers on board were killed.
