Sera's Cafe Quiz Show: Phoenix wins

Post by Seraphim » Mon Jul 18, 2011 4:04 pm

This month's quiz topic is:

Famous Crashes

Image


The main focus will be on plane crashes which led to the death, disappearance, etc. of a celebrity. However, I may add in a few well known aerial disasters. Read the rules here if you need a refresher. Good luck!

Question 1: Which celebrity disappeared in a UC-64 Norseman over the English Channel in December of 1944?
