Today in History: Lufthansa was (re)formed in 1954 

Lufthansa originally formed back in 1926 as Deutsche Luft Hansa A.G. (the name Deutsche Lufthansa was used as of 1933). But with the defeat of Germany in World War II, the country lost sovereignty over its airspace and Lufthansa had to cease all operations. A new national airline was founded under the name of Luftag in 1953. Luftag acquired the name and logo of Deutsche Lufthansa on August 6, 1954 and was granted approval to launch domestic flights in April of 1955. International operations began in May of 1955 and thus the tradition of the German flag carrier continued.

Today is World Turtle Day!

Today is World Turtle Day!

Did you know that turtles have been around for more than 200 million years? These ancient creatures evolved before mammals, birds, snakes, or lizards! Biologists believe that turtles have managed to outlive many other species due to the unique protection provided by their shells. Turtles come in all different shapes and sizes, and can be found on every continent except Antarctica. The smallest is the Bog Turtle, which usually measures just four inches in length, and the largest is the Leathery Turtle, which can weigh up to 1500 pounds! Source: punchbowl.com

Today in History: TWA begins commercial service in 1934

On May 18, 1934, TWA (Trans World Airlines) officially launched its commercial service on the Columbus-Pittsburgh-Newark route with the Douglas DC-2. The aircraft’s success quickly led to its introduction on most TWA routes, and the growth of others. The most prominent of these was the Sun Racer, also known as TWA Flight 1, which promised to deliver passengers from coast to coast in a single day.

Today in History: Rome founded 753 B.C.

Today in History: Rome founded 753 B.C.

The beginnings of the history of Rome are obscure. Humans have lived in the area known as Rome for at least the last 6,000 years. According to legend, on April 21, 753 B.C., twin brothers Romulus and Remus found Rome on the site where they were suckled by a she-wolf as orphaned infants. It is said that Romulus killed his twin brother, Remus, and named the city after himself. However, this myth supposedly originated sometime during the fourth century and it is thus not really clear where the name Rome originally comes from. Was it really 21 April 753 BC?
