The first transatlantic passenger flight happened on
Well, back to the birthday pair, Pavel and Melisa, they weren't around in 1939 to celebrate the transatlantic passenger flight. But they've wasted no time getting themselves aloft. Please allow me to introduce our honorees. . .
Dear friend Melissa, here shown last summer in Donetsk, Ukraine, teaching a children's Bible class. Melissa has done lots of transatlantic flights, transpacific flights and quite a few down to South America.
Happy Birthday Melissa! С днём рождения, Павел! (Happy Birthday, Pavel)
*Note: Just occurred to me that our honorees could figure this out. Both are smart cookies. Pavel has PhD and MD degrees. Melissa is a Mensa-type, summa cumma laude -whiz kid. They probably have this figured out already. They've probably known it since childhood. =)
