Yeah, I remember the last time it happened. Planes didn't fall out of the sky, but Tokyo traffic was a serious mess. (The Japanese had started using GPS in a serious way a *lot* earlier than we did, due mostly to the chaotic nature of the Tokyo non-grid and the fact that Tokyo addresses are a complete mystery and mostly non-existent.)
I'm surprised any of those "short field" GPS systems survived that round ...
