Does anyone know how many babies have been born while in flight?
A question for the statisticians among you .... When a child is born on an airplane in flight, how is the "place of birth" decided upon?
Should it be: "Undetermined"; or perhaps "Aboard a Boeing".
Or .... Would the place of the infant's birth be the location over which the aircraft was flying at the time?
Interesting dilemma, don't you think?
I'm sure this has happened numerous times in the past. Was just curious as to how (and who) decides the exact place of birth [not that it's really very important at all actually].
I think it would be ultra-cool indeed to answer someone's question of "Where were you born?" with .... "Inside a Boeing 777-300, travelling at 585 MPH somewhere over the Pacific Ocean!"
