 Today's weather trivia: 25 March 1954: Thick fog enclosed the U.S. military
base in St. Anthony, NL. As locals watched in horror, a 16,000-kg SA-16
Albatross amphibious plane emerged from the fog, hooked a boulder, tore
through a house, dug into the road's shoulder, and slammed into a shed.
Aviation fuel filled the air and soaked the ground but the aircraft did not
explode and the 10 people on board survived.
