The most mysterious plane crash in history

AMELIA EARHART

Perhaps the most mysterious incident in the history of aviation occurred with the American writer and aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart

The mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which occurred on March 8, 2014, is far from the only air tragedy that raises more questions than it gives answers.

Aviation stories are known cases when the aircraft also did not give a distress signal, and after the disappearance did not leave any traces and debris.

Here are just some of the loudest and most mysterious plane crashes, in which mysticism also did not go:

1. Air France flight 447 (2009)

This fatal aerial incident occurred in 2009 with the participation of the Airbus A 330, flying from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. The plane with 228 passengers on board fell into the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. As in the case of the missing Malaysian plane, Air France pilots did not give a distress signal. A full search and rescue operation for five days did not produce any results.Then some fragments of the tail section of the aircraft were found.

The search for the plane that fell to the bottom of the ocean, dragged on for two years. And a year later, as a result of the investigation, it was established that ice crystals blocked the aircraft’s airspeed sensors - this is what led to the tragedy.

2. Flight 800 TWA (1996)

The Boeing 747, traveling from New York to Rome, exploded in the air and fell into the Atlantic Ocean. All 230 passengers aboard died. Experts from the National Transportation Safety Board found that the likely cause of the crash was a fuel tank explosion due to improper electrical wiring.

However, supporters of conspiracy theories are convinced that the cause of the explosion was a bomb planted on board the aircraft or a collision with a missile from the US Navy.

In a briefing conducted last summer, the National Security Council confirmed that neither the testimony, the wreckage found, nor the records from the flight recorders confirm the assumption that the aircraft collided with a missile.

3. EgyptAir Flight 990 (1999)

The Boeing 767, which operated regular flights between Los Angeles and Cairo, crashed and fell into the Atlantic Ocean almost immediately after takeoff. The disaster claimed the lives of 200 people.After a 2-year investigation, it was found that the plane crash was caused by the wrong actions of the crew commander.

All the evidence collected by the National Council, including the flight path of the aircraft and the data from the flight recorders, indicated that the commander and senior assistant tried to take control of the plane in the last minutes of their lives. The senior officer repeatedly repeated: "I rely on God." This version did not suit the Egyptian side, and she put forward her own - the cause of the catastrophe was a malfunction of the aircraft control system.

4. The Cessna Airplane (1972)

On October 16, 1972, Democratic Party member Thomas Hale Boggs and politician Nick Begich boarded the twin-engine Cessna, which was heading for the capital city of Alaska, Juneau. However, the plane was never destined to deliver passengers to their destination - it disappeared without a trace. Even 39-day searches, which were called “the most ambitious in the history of Alaska”, because 70 planes were involved in them, they did not give any results.

Different assumptions were made about the cause of the crash.It was rumored that the plane was shot down by Serbs because of the Croatian roots of Begić. Another version pointed to the political past of Boggs, who was part of the Warren Commission.

5. Amelia Earhart (1937)

The mystery of the last flight of Amelia Earhart, the first female pilot, is still unsolved. In 1937, while trying to make a round-the-world flight on a twin-engine Lockheed Model 10 Electra Amelia Earhart and her co-driver Fred Noonan were missing in the central part of the Pacific Ocean. According to one version, the plane just ran out of fuel, according to another - Amelia Earhart and Frederick Noonan were captured by the Japanese, who built their military bases on the islands located in this part of the Pacific Ocean.
