Eastern Air Lines Flight 375, registration N5533, was a Lockheed L-188 Electra aircraft that crashed on takeoff from Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts on 4 October 1960. 62 of 72 on board were killed in the accident; ten survived, nine with serious injuries.

Surely there has to be a better way to phrase this:
At a height of about 120 feet small birds were sucked into the propeller engines, causing the propeller on engine 1 to be feathered and shut down.

374 = 2 x 11 x 17

Ordnance Survey describe their Explorer maps as “The essential map range for those who like to discover new wonders and find hidden treasures“. So presumably this one is pretty much redundant:

366 == 2*3*61

366 is also the number of days in a year. Well, some years.

In the year we know as 364 BC (and several centuries before and a few after) in parts of Europe (definitely area of France, very likely British Isles and other <ahem> “Celtic” areas), a year wasn’t as simple as that....

A 2nd century calendar discovered in France is an attempt to reconcile the cycles of the moon and sun, as is the modern Gregorian calendar. However, this calendar considers the phases of the moon to be important, and each month always begins with the same moon phase. The calendar uses a mathematical arrangement to keep a normal 12 month calendar in sync with the moon and keeps the whole system in sync by adding an intercalary month every ​2 1⁄2 years. It registers a five-year cycle of 62 lunar months, divided into a "bright" and a "dark" fortnight (or half a moon cycle) each. The months were possibly taken to begin on the new moon, and a 13th intercalary month was added every two and a half years to align the lunations with the solar year.

The following table gives the sequence of months in a five-year cycle, with the suggested length of each month according to Mac Neill and Olmsted:

month name Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5
Quimonios 30 – – – –
1. Samonios 30 30 30 30 30
2. Dumannios 29 29 29 29 29
3. Riuros 30 30 30 30 30
4. Anagantio 29 29 29 29 29
5. Ogronnios 30 30 30 30 30
6. Qutios 30 30 30 30 30
Rantaranos – – 30 – –
7. Giamonios 29 29 29 29 29
8. Semiuisonns 30 30 30 30 30
9. Equos 30 28 30 28/29 30
10. Elembiuios 29 29 29 29 29
11. Aedrinios 30 30 30 30 30
12. Cantlos 29 29 29 29 29
year length 385 353 385 353 or 354 355
total length 1831 or 1832 days

The total of 1831 days is very close to the exact value of 62 × 29.530585 = 1830.90 days, keeping the calendar in relatively good agreement with the synodic month (with an error of one day in 50 years).

ETA Oh, and a “day” ran from sunset to sunset.
