"Planes aren't going to fall out of the sky"! That's good. I was so worried about that.

Peter de "Jaeger" says so.

LIFE AFTER Y2K: What are all those trouble-shooting consultants going to do once the millennium arrives?

They're going to be queuing up at 7-11 stores all over North America, trying to get a refund on those two extra "Campbell's cans of condensed soup" which they bought on Peter de Jager's advice, and suddenly found that they didn't need...:)

BTW, is Peter still planning to fly to warm, sunny Spain at New Year's?

Re: "Planes aren't going to fall out of the sky"!

This is untrue. THEY ALREADY HAVE.

The Air Force crashed 2 F15s in Exercise Y2K Flag a few months ago. Now they could have crashed because of Y2K problems in the plane, ground equipment, or because Y2K testing of combat aircraft is inherently dangerous, but the fact of the matter is simple. Planes have already fallen out of the sky because of Y2K.
