A trip barely as long as the runway

One of my class mates mentioned that she was born on a flight from Tallinn to Riga, Estonia which are a bit over 100 miles apart.  I find this feet impressive in both that someone flew such a short distance but was able to give birth during that period of time.  She’s a junior so I’ll assume it was when Estonia was a Soviet client state and the airplane was pulled by a team of donkeys.
