This Friday the 13th Marks Flight 666's Final Trip to Hel

Nordic airline Finnair has flown fearless passengers from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Helsinki, Finland, on Friday the 13th since 2006. In 11 years, flight 666 flight to HEL has flown on Friday the 13th a total of 21 times, all without incident.

As the airline begins to re-number the flights, Flight 666 will soon become Flight 954.

Friday marked the very last time the notorious Finnair Flight 666 took off from Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH), and flew directly to Helsinki, Finland (HEL), on Friday the 13th - something that's happened only 21 times since the spooky flight made its devilish debut 11 years ago. The flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki takes about an hour and half.

Fire prevention taught by the pros
Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out of the home. The American Red Cross is also doing its part to keep homes safe with its creation of a nationwide Home Fire Campaign.

But for flying professionals, the flight with the bravest passengers in the sky is just another day at the office.

"It has been quite a joke among the pilots", pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto told the Associated Press in 2013.

The Flight number, 666, is widely known as the biblical "mark of the beast" mentioned in the apocalyptic Book of Revelation, and refers to the Antichrist who wreaks havoc on the earth before the second coming of Christ. "It's only a coincidence for me". In 1989, Nancy Reagan had their address changed from 666 St. Cloud Road to 668 and in 2003, U.S. Route 666 was changed to 491 out of fear of the devil. Unfortunately, this will not be the last Friday the 13th. "Oh, no! I won't make it in time for flight 666 to HEL" he joked in an October 13 Twitter post.
