NATIONAL WRONG WAY CORRIGAN DAY

July 17th is known as National Wrong Way Corrigan Day.

Douglas Corrigan was an Irish-American aviator who “accidentally” flew to Ireland on a flight from Long Beach, CA, to New York.  Apparently, Corrigan made a navigational error during his flight, caused by heavy cloud coverage…he somehow ended up in Ireland!  Was it a true error?  No one will never know, as Corrigan never admitted to intentionally flying to a different country.

HISTORY

July 17, 1938 is the Day Corrigan left New York but we are unable to determine who designated this “unofficial” National holiday.
