So, what are the facts in aviation history, major or minor, sad or happy, that happened on your birthday?
Mine is unfortunately a sad one: January 13, 1982. The crash of Palm 90.

Lebanon International Airways (I will have to verify the actual airline name, I'm going from memory here) took delivery of its first 2 ex-AA CV-990s on October 19, 1965. The planes were ultimately destroyed by Israeli commandos nearly 2 years later.
