Crazy but true: Flight 666 lands in HEL on Friday the 13th

Flight to Hell

In a bizarre Friday-the-13th coincidence, a flight bearing the number of the beast went straight to HEL today.

That’s right. Finnair Flight 666 took off from Copenhagen (CPH) and flew directly to Helsinki (HEL) on Friday.

Even better? The flight took off at 13:00 local time, according to Flightaware. The one-hour, 34-minute flight landed at HEL at 3:41 p.m. Helsinki time.

And it gets even wackier.

The Twitter account @Flightradar24, which tracks air traffic around the world, even pointed out the aircraft is 13 years old, according to its registration and serial number.

It may be less of a coincidence and more of a brilliant move by someone (who needs a raise) in Finnair's scheduling department. Either way, it's a fascinating alignment of oddities.

Next on the agenda: Dig through the list of ticketed passengers to find out if anyone named Jason was on Flight 666 on Friday the 13th.
