COPY Duck a cooked goose in midair collision The Associated Press JUNEAU, Alaska The bird in the co-pilot's seat was a dead duck, but the pilot and passenger lived to tell the story. The 3-pound duck landed in the co-pilot's scat after crashing through the windshield of the single-engine plane. "It happened real fast. I saw a shadow closing in on my windshield, and then felt a rush of air coming through," pilot Oddvar Sand of L.A.B. Flying Service said Tuesday. "I had feathers in my mouth." The duck is in a freezer, he said, adding, "I'm going to have it stuffed for the memory." The accident occurred Saturday while Sand was taking a passenger on the 40-mile flight from Hoonah to Juneau. Sand said he was climbing to cruising altitude when he ran into a flock of ducks at about 2,000 feet. One bird crashed through the quarter-inch plastic windshield, bounced off the dash, hit Sand in the chest, and then fell into the empty co-pilot's seat, said Lynn Bennett, chief pilot for L.A.B. Sand suffered a gash on his head that took six stitches to close. His passenger was in the back seat was not hurt. Sand said the duck "fluttered his wings a little bit and just died right there." It took Sand about 10 minutes to reach the airport after the accident, the wind blowing in his face through the broken windshield. Love is blind for 2 brides The Associated Press NEW DELHI Two Hindu brides, their vision obstructed by long veils, married the wrong men Tuesday, stretching the phrase "love is blind." The Times of India reported that two marriage parties arrived at the same time Tuesday in Patan, a village in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. The ceremonies were rushed, and the long veils obscured the brides' vision, the report said. Following Hindu tradition, one bride circled a fire with a bridegroom seven times, sealing the marriage. The other bride then completed "the seven steps" with the second bridegroom, it said. When the veils were lifted, the brides learned of the mistake. Village elders said there could be no exchange of spouses. Most marriages in rural India are arranged.

Post Gilbert, Hugo cut from names for hurricanes Scripps Howard WASHINGTON There never will be another Hurricane Hugo or Hurricane Gilbert Like other hurricanes that have caused large death tolls or enormous amounts of damage, Hugo and Gilbert have been banished from the official list of Atlantic hurricane names by the World Meteorological Organization. ' Hugo was taken off the list for causing several deaths and billions of dollars of property damage last year in the Carolinas, especially in Charleston, S.C., and nearby beach communities. Gilbert, which ravaged Jamaica and Mexico in 1988, was knocked off for causing scores of deaths and enormous losses, particularly in Cancun, a resort on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. Hugo, which the organization had scheduled for use again in 1995, has been replaced by Humberto. And Gilbert, which was to be used again in 1994, has been replaced by Gordon. Other infamous hurricanes whose names have been retired include Allen, which struck in 1980; Camille, 1969; Carla, 1961; Carol, 1954; Connie, 1955; David, 1979; Diane, 1955; Donna, I960; Elena, 1985; Eloise, 1975; Frederic, 1979; Gloria, 1985; Hazel, 1953; and Joan, 1988. The Atlantic's 1990 hurricane season officially will begin next Friday and will run through Nov. 30. This year's storms will be named Arthur, Bertha, Cesar, Diana, Edouard, Fran, Gustav, Hortense, Isidore, Josephine, Klaus, Lili, Marco, Nana, Omar, Paloma, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky and Wilfred. The Pacific's hurricane season got under way May 12, when Hurricane Alma formed off Mexico's western coast and moved into little-traveled waters between California and Hawaii. Other 1990 Pacific storms will be named Boris, Christina, Douglas, Elida, Fausto, Genevieve, Hernan, Iselle, Julio, Kenna, Lowell, Marie, Norbert, Odile, Polo, Rachel, Simon, Trudy, Vance, Wallis, Xavicr, Yolanda and Zeke.
