"86 Days between sighting of Chinook helicopters and Chinook crash on 8.6. of 2011"

 
On the 20th of May 2011 John posted this letter that I wrote about my sighting of three Chinook helicopters and a 'close encounter' with a wild rabbit: http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/may2011/bobware520-1.htm
 
On May 19th I wrote this note to Clay:

That first sighting of the three Chinook helicopters occurred on 5.12.2011 (two days prior to the 63rd anniversary of the rebirth of Israel). That was 86 days prior to the crash of the Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan on 8.6.2011. 86 is the Hebrew gematria of God in Genesis 1:1.
 
Just strange coincidences?
