Remembering the 'Boy-Scout' Filipino Tragedy of July 28, 1963

Some older Filipino Americans can still recall vividly the crash of an EgyptAir jetliner in the Bay of Bombay, India, on July 28, 1963. EgyptAir was called at that time the United Arab Airlines. The Egyptian airliner, a British-made Comet jetliner, was bound for Athens, Greece. Its flight originated in Hong Kong and had a stop over in Bangkok, Thailand.

  • mabuhay : FYI on Mother's Day. Spain, the PH and other Hispanic countries have a better term for a "Stepmother." Spaniards, Filipinos, Mexicans & other Latinos use affectionately "Madrasta" in calling their StepMommy. But if the Madrasta was like Queen Grimhilde, the StepMom of Snow White, many Filipinos call her "Majadera." I have no idea how the latter term came to be coined. So to the Queens Grimhilde of the world, "Happy Majadera's Day," too.
