I was on a 727 that dumped fuel some time back.  It was New Years Eve,
1966 to exact.  The reason given was that the antiskid device on
the brakes had failed and the flight deck wanted the plane as
light as possible when we landed.  It took a while.  It was the fourth
plane I was on that day and the fourth one with mechanical problems.

I never fly New Years Eve anymore.
