Niagara Falls Dewatered - 1969 From June to November 1969, the American portion of Niagara Falls had its water flow from the Niagara River diverted to Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. It was the work of the US Army Corps of Engineers. The reason for the drastic measure was to scientifically study the falls for critical erosion damage. At the time there was a great fear that steady erosion was irretrievably affecting the falls. If the falls eroded to the point where they were not spectacular, the lucrative local tourism industry would suffer badly. The only way to know for sure if the falls were threatened was to examine the limestone precipice without any water present. Accordingly the engineers deftly dumped tons of landfill to block the American side of the falls. The Niagara River's typical discharge of 60,000 gallons of water per minute was reduced to just a small trickle. It was determined that natural erosion was not a threat at the time, but the engineers did use the opportunity to install sensors to alert them to any future erosion issues. Interestingly 1969 produced the greatest tourism year ever at Niagara Falls because people were drawn to the region to view the strangely barren waterfall.

Boston Molasses Disaster 1919 On January 15, 1919, one of the strangest disasters in American history killed 21 people in Boston. A enormous holding tank belonging to the Purity Distilling Company containing 2.3 million gallons of molasses burst under pressure. (Molasses was a common sweetener of the era; it could also be distilled into alcohol.) A tidal wave of the sticky goo anywhere from 8 to 15 feet high swept over the neighbourhood moving at an estimated speed of 35 mph. The force of the wave collapsed buildings and part of the elevated railway system. Some victims died in the wreckage of crushed buildings. Others simply drowned in the thick goo. The holding tank was certainly defective and Purity Distilling was found criminally liable, but the exact cause of the catastrophe was never ascertained.

Near Air Disaster - 1983 Gimli Glider Incident A mistake in metric measurement nearly caused a catastrophic airplane disaster over Canadian airspace in the summer of 1983. Known to Canadians as "the Gimli Glider," on Saturday, July 23, 1983, Air Canada Flight 143, a Boeing 767-233 jet, ran out of fuel at an altitude of 41,000 feet. It was about halfway through a flight originating in Montreal en route to Edmonton with a stopover in Ottawa. Although both engines conked out due to lack of fuel, the crew was able to glide the aircraft safely to an emergency landing at Gimli Industrial Park Airport, a former Royal Canadian Air Force base in the small community of Gimli, Manitoba. An investigation later found out the airplane had run out of jet fuel because it had wrongly been fueled in litres rather than imperial gallons. Luckily for the 61 passengers onboard, the flight crew was familiar with glider flying techniques and was able to safely land the huge aircraft. With some difficulty, the airplane touched down on a small runway that had recently been converted from an abandoned military airstrip to to a race track. A race event was underway at the time but was stopped in time to allow the aircraft to land. An official investigation later revealed "company failures and a chain of human errors that combined to defeat built-in safeguards."
