236

In the summer of 2001, Air Transat Flight 236, out of Toronto, bound for Lisbon, ran out of fuel somewhere over the Atlantic — a fuel leak in the #2 engine, caused by a bit of clumsy maintenance on the ground — and managed to come down in the Azores with no loss of life and only minor injuries to eighteen of the three hundred on board.

If you were thinking that after 236 editions, the Carnival of the Vanities might be out of gas, you might want to think again.
