A Friend Helps Separated Twins To Be Reunited A Hospital Blunder 35 Years Ago

The twins who were separated as babies 35 years ago, have now had a tearful reunion.  Ullyana and Nsenia were born in the city of Perm in Russia on December 2, 1982.  Their parents Galina and Vladimir Shilov were given Ullyana and  and the baby daughter of Ms Elena Azanova.  Nsenia had to stay in hospital for a month to undergo treatment, and it was when they picked her up they noticed she had nappy rash and bed sores.  Nsenia in the meantime had later been taken to an orphanage.

One day Ullyana’s friend spotted Nsenia walking down the street and because she was struck by the similarities she arranged for them to meet.  When they met both Ullyana and Nsenia immediately knew they were sisters.  The happy parents said Yana will always be their daughter.  A Russian court has awarded compensation to each of them.

How Time Flies- The Speed of Air Travel

In a recent documentary I heard how the flight the young Queen Elizabeth I  and Prince Phillip took to Lagos, Nigeria in 1956 was 17 hours.  The late Captain Ronald Ballatine and Captain Parker flew the royal party on the BOAC Canadair Argonaut airliner, Atalanta the 2,000- mile journey.  Now the 3110-mile flight in a 777 four-engine jet takes 10 hours.

Today the world’s longest passenger non-stop flight from Singapore to New York was taking off for the first time  In an Airbus 359-900 with 161 passengers the flight is  lasting  nearly 19 hours and covering 10,400 miles.  Australia’s Qantas started their 17-hour non-stop flight from Perth to London earlier this year.
