This Day in History: 1916 – The United States uses airplanes in combat for the first time as eight “Jenny” planes of the First Aero Squadron take off from Columbus, New Mexico on a support mission for 7,000 troops who had invaded Mexico to capture Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa.

Fact of the Day: Despite an overwhelming advantage in the expedition to capture Pancho Villa in 1916, US forces under General John Pershing were unable to capture the revolutionary, and after 11 months, were ordered home to prepare for their involvement in World War I in Europe.

#StrangeButTrue: Your chances of dying in an airplane accident are one in 11 million.  Your chances of dying in a car crash?  One in 5,000.
