Trivia Minute Update: April 18, 2017

We’ll start off with a trivia question: What sporting event is closely associated with World War I fighter pilot Roland Garros?

We’ll have the answer later in the show.

Today is World Heritage Day; Independence Day in Zimbabwe, Friend’s Day in Brazil and Coma Patients’ Day in Poland.

It’s unofficially National Lineman Appreciation Day, National Animal Crackers Day, and National Velociraptor Awareness Day.

It’s the birthday of TV host Conan O’Brien, who is 54; actor David Tennant, who is 46; and actress America Ferrera, who is 33.

Now, we’ll spin the wheel to pick a year at random.

This week in 1983, the top song in the U.S. was “Come On Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners.

The No. 1 movie was “Lone Wolf McQuade,” while the novel “The Little Drummer Girl” by John le Carre topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.

Weekly question: Who was the first fighter pilot to achieve ace status with five or more victories.

Submit your answer at triviapeople.com/test and we’ll add the name of the person with the first correct answer to our winner’s wall … at triviapeople.com. We’ll have the correct answer on Friday’s episode.
