The Movie: Airplane! (1980)
What Is It?: Crew of passenger plane makes tragic decision to eat the fish. Air force veteran haunted by his tragic wartime experiences and recovering from a tragic drinking problem takes over the cockpit while said crew pukes its guts out. Johnny makes a hat, a broach, and a pterodactyl. War is hell. Commercial air travel is hell. Origami is hell.
Why Today?: On this day in 1903, the Wright Brothers achieve flight.
