International Civil Aviation Day December 7th, 2012
Air travel can be a bit of a pain from time to time, but think of how stuck we'd all be without civil aviation. Going to Europe would mean floating along on a boat for a week. And forget about long weekends in the Bahamas, you'd spend the whole time just getting there and back. So today, and next time you're crammed in the middle seat of a 737 that's been taxiing for three hours, remember flying is awesome.
