@Johncdvorak The Y2K bug wasn't a complete hoax. I specced 100's of program changes that were required on our Fujitsu mainframe system for a major energy company here back in 1998/99. The bug was real and it was widespread.

The scare was probably necessary to some extent to spur companies into action to prevent a worse case scenario.

Planes dropping out of the sky was possibly an exaggeration however I don't know anything about their onboard systems to comment with authority.
