None of the flight numbers were Q 33 NY. Commercial airline flights are identified by TWO letters and then a series of numbers. So, the American Airlines flight in question was AA 11, and the other flight was (United) UA 175.

It is, however, a variation on the older version, in which "NYC" converted to Wingdings shows up as a death's head, a star of david, and a thumbs-up, which some claimed was a secret antisemitic message from MS, instead of a coincidence.

Thanks Oxygenee, figured it had to be too weird to be true.

Take a look at this, I do not mean to throw in the typical chain stuff, but this is a little too strange to ignore.

If you have MS Word, type in Q33 NY (the flight number of one of
the airplanes that crashed into the WTC). Then, change font size
to 72 AND change the font to Wingdings.

Was one of the actual flight numbers Q33 NY? If not, I guess someone spent a little too much time plugging in keys to get this outcome.
