Right lads, new Mod here! Keep on topic, spell your posts correctly and keep within the bounds of grammatical correctitude and you'll have no bother from me!

Now, I thought I'd make this part of the forum slightly more of a runner. This is what happened on this day through history:

1968: United States erupts in race violence
Dozens of major cities in the United States are rocked by an escalation in the race riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King.

1994: Rwanda presidents' plane 'shot down'
The presidents of the African states of Rwanda and Burundi are killed in a plane crash believed to have been caused by rocket fire.

1997: Fault cuts short space shuttle mission
Nasa brings home the space shuttle Columbia 12 days early amid fears over a defective fuel cell.

1975: 'Operation Babylift' lands in UK
A plane carrying 99 Vietnamese orphans has landed at Heathrow airport.

1989: Dockers' 'jobs for life' scrapped
The government has announced it is to abolish legislation which guarantees work for more than 9,000 dockers.

1930 - Gandhi raises a lump of mud and salt and declares, "With this, I am shaking the foundations of the British Empire." Thus he starts the Salt Satyagraha.

1937 - Merle Haggard, American musician

1965 - Launch of Early Bird, the first communications satellite to be placed in geosynchronous orbit.

1998 - Pakistan tests medium-range missiles capable of hitting India.
