A small plane crashed and burned at Nashville International Airport early Tuesday, killing the pilot — but the exact time of the crash is unknown because nobody at the airport noticed it. The airport’s control tower is staffed around the clock, but the airport wasn’t aware of the incident until another plane spotted the wreckage of the single-engine Cessna-172. FAA investigators, who say there was fog and low visibility overnight, believe the crash may have gone unnoticed for up to six hours.

Lamenda Kingdon (from Plymouth, UK) wanted to see the Alhambra Palace in the Spanish region of Granada after being diagnosed with breast cancer. However she was put on a flight to the Caribbean island Grenada by a travel rewards company, a mistake she only realized once she was in the air. The 62-year-old was enjoying a gin and tonic at 30,000 feet when she remarked to a fellow passenger she was looking forward to visiting the historic Spanish city. The passenger replied: “Not on this plane, you won’t.” The passenger grabbed the elbow of a passing stewardess, laughing and crying out loudly, enough for everyone on board to hear: “This lady thinks she’s going to Spain!” Lamenda had booked the flight over the phone using her late husband’s air miles and was unaware the destination on her ticket was off by a letter — and 4,000 miles. After the flight crew had been made aware of the mix-up they ushered Lamenda and her new friend into first class before producing a bottle of champagne. Lamenda was helped back to the UK and once there was comped a flight the next day to Granada.

A woman in China went online to arrange an extramarital sexcapade. One problem: her Romeo turned out to her father-in-law.
