Perhaps a very deep dive, but the name is iconic enough that it's conceivable it might pop up.

Bombardier has announced that after 58 years of continuous production, Learjet production will cease before the end of 2021.

In volcano news, a newcomer enters the game! (I've done Ring of Fire, Iceland and Italy, but no Caribbean entry yet)

On Friday, the small Caribbean island of St. Vincent [of St. Vincent and the Grenadines] became the epicenter of the seismic world when La Soufriere volcano sent a cloud of ash flying 20,000 feet (6,096 meters) into the sky and streaming across the Atlantic.

Right-handed pitcher Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter on April 9 against the Texas Rangers. It is the first no-hitter ever by a Padres pitcher.

I'm not absolutely certain about this, but I believe the San Diego Padres were the last remaining MLB team never to record a no-hitter in franchise history.

[Hideki] Matsuyama won the Masters on Sunday, his first major, and in doing so, became the first Japanese male golfer ever to win a major tournament (two Japanese women, Chako Higuchi and Hinako Shibuno, won at the 1977 LPGA and 2019 Women’s British Open, respectively).

Not to be confused with

Bernard Madoff has died in prison at the age of 82. Madoff's investment advisory business was exposed in 2008 as a Ponzi scheme that wiped out people’s fortunes and ruined charities. He is said to have been so hated that he wore a bulletproof vest to court.
