On Friday the 13th they boarded Flight 666 bound for HEL

What could possibly go wrong?

When an airplane lands safely at the appropriate time and the right airport, usually nobody writes about it.

There was an exception to that today, though.

HEL is airport lingo for Helsinki, Finland. The flight took off from Copenhagen, Denmark. And, despite all the superstitions and numbers that seemed to be pointing toward something ominous, nothing bad happened.

The Daily Mail reports it left one minute late but arrived a little ahead of schedule.

The Finnair flight is always number 666 but the news site RT.com says it gets more attention when it takes off on Friday the 13th, which last happened in May of last year.

We also learned there that the phobias of things like the number 666 or Friday the 13th have special names. Which should be added to your spelling list.

Fear of Friday the 13th is: Paraskevidekatriaphobia.

Fear of 666 is: Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

Say those 10 times fast.
