Three B-52s become the first aircraft to circle the globe non-stop, Willie O'Ree breaks the NHL's color barrier, "The Jeffersons" premieres, and Jim Thorpe gets his Olympic medals back, all on this day.
1990: Washington, D.C., Mayor Marion Barry is arrested for crack cocaine use and possession in a sting operation by the FBI and D.C. Police. Although he was charged with three felony counts of perjury, 10 counts of misdemeanor drug possession, and one misdemeanor count of conspiracy to possess cocaine, he would be convicted of only one of the drug possession charges. That summer he decided not to seek re-election and in October 1990 was sentenced to six months in federal prison.
