Today's weather trivia: 3 February 1955: A pilot flying from Vancouver, BC,
to Portland, OR, in fog realized his gas was running low. Customs and
immigration officials, hearing the plane make passes over their buildings,
turned all of their lights on and directed motorists to turn their
headlights on a 200-m stretch of highway. The aircraft glided down to the
lighted strip and coasted within a few metres of the immigration building.
