Rescue Beacon Summons Airliners

airliner rescue 

With the aid of binoculars, passengers and crew of two airliners locate lost Australian sailor adift at sea for over a week when rough seas snapped the mast on his boat.  An Air Canada plane and an Air New Zealand aircraft swooped down to 4,000 feet to assist rescuers in the search for the man who had activated his emergency beacon.  His remote location was out of helicopter range, so rescuers asked the planes’ pilots to get involved as they were flying over the vessel’s GPS position.  The sailor was later picked up by a rescue boat after the planes helped pinpoint his location 300 miles off Australia.  Passengers said it was very exciting to be involved in a search like this.  View the youtube video of the pilot’s comments about the experience. http://youtu.be/t8IbmxDHN9w

When Is It Too Old to Be a Father?

worlds oldest father

It seems milk, almonds and butter are the key to virility for this 96 year old man who fathered his second child.  Ramjeet Raghav, a field hand and former wrestler from India, reportedly first broke the “World’s Oldest New Dad” record when he became a father to his first son in November 2010.   The 96-year-old dad claims that when his 52-year-old wife, Shakuntala Devi, gave birth to their second child on Oct. 5, he became the world’s oldest new father, according to The Times of India.

“We had planned for another baby after my first son was born in 2010. It’s a blessing to have a baby at now and I am enjoying fatherhood at this age.

“I have led a very simple life. I didn’t marry for long and followed a strict diet. I’ve taken milk, butter and fruits everyday since my childhood. We are absolutely delighted to have another member in the family. It’s a great feeling for both of us,” he said.
