Mysterious air crash

Man has long been fascinated by flight, and thanks to modern technology, this dream has become a reality. However, everything has its price. A machine, like a person, is sometimes prone to make mistakes, and even minor mistakes can have fatal consequences. While we are trying to learn from each disaster and improve the equipment, there are some disasters that leave us thinking about what happened.

Flight 1911

Flight 19 began as a regular training mission for the US Navy, and ended with six disappeared aircraft, giving rise to the legend of the Bermuda Triangle. Five Avenger naval aircraft that went to Flight 19 (led by Charles Taylor) took off from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on December 5, 1945. The weather was clear and nothing predicted trouble. But after 90 minutes of the pilots, something disoriented, they could not recognize the landmarks below. According to the radio program, Taylor's compass began to malfunction, and it seemed that he was confusing the Florida Keys with the Bahamas.The command tower tried to send Taylor back to Fort Lauderdale, and his students asked him to go west, but Taylor continued to lead them in obscure directions further to the sea. Ultimately, the tower lost contact with these five aircraft, and none of them have been found to this day. Even more surprising, the rescue plane also went missing that night in search of the Taylor team. Many have suggested that they just exploded in the air, as they simply disappeared from the radar. One of the most curious things in this incident is that Taylor, without explanation, asked for removal from that mission. The fleet rejected his request, and he was forced to continue his fateful mission. What was Taylor's reason for not wanting to fly that day?

Flight 990 EgyptAir12

On Halloween Day 1999, Flight 990 EgyptAir crashed into the Atlantic Ocean - killing all 217 passengers on board. The Egyptian authorities (ECAA) investigated the catastrophe, but since they had limited resources and the accident occurred in international waters, they asked for help from the US National Transportation Safety Board. The NTSB agreed to help and discovered an intentional violation of the rules, after which they decided to include the FBI in the investigation. The Egyptians refused and insisted the NTSB continue the research.However, when evidence of the crime continued to open, the Egyptians decided to begin their own examination. As you might have guessed, the American NTSB and the Egyptian ECAA came to two different conclusions. The United States decided that the co-pilot was suicidal and deliberately destroyed the plane for personal, unknown reasons. The Egyptians reduced the incident to mechanical problems. This explanation did not satisfy conspiracy theorists who touted the ideas of terrorism and conspiracies. They tended to believe that everything was planned to kill the 33 members of the Egyptian government who were on board. Although we may never know exactly what happened, the final interpretations of the pilots' talks give us a pretty good idea. The pilot says: “What is it? What is it? Have you shut down the engines? ”. Meanwhile, the co-pilot responds: “I rely on God.”

star dust13

Star Dust was a civilian version of a Lancaster bomber registered on British South American Airways. In 1947, the plane made a flight from Buenos Aires to Santiago, Chile, but disappeared into the Andes minutes before its scheduled landing.At the last moment, the aircraft’s radio operator transmitted one final, perplexing message to Morse code: “STENDEC”. No traces of StarDust were found, and after an extensive search for the alleged crash site, the researchers concluded that they would never know what had happened to the plane. Fifty years later, travelers discovered wreckage of a plane in a melting glacier. Stellar Dust strayed off course at low visibility, mistakenly crashing into a cloud-covered mountain range. The finding of the wreckage allowed us to discard the versions of sabotage and foreign abduction, but the value of “STENDEC” remains a secret to this day.

Flight 19114

Flight 191 does not relate to a specific catastrophe, but rather to incidents that occurred during flights at number 191. In fact, there were so many accidents that, as is the case with hotel owners who abandoned the 13th floor, some superstitious airlines completely ended number "191". Since the 1960s, five flights with the number 191 ended in fatal accidents, including the worst plane crash in American history: American Airlines Flight 191, which killed 273 people. The last time, in 2012, JetBlue Airways Flight 191 hit the headlines after a pilot went insane during the flight and began to rant about Jesus, the terrorists, and 9/11.He was kicked out of the cockpit by the co-pilot and stranded by passengers. Later, he was placed in a psychiatric hospital. Although the failure of flights ending in 191 is most likely a coincidence, numerologists are still trying to decipher the hidden meaning of these numbers.

Flight 739 Flying Tiger15

In 1962, the US military chartered Flight 739 Flying Tiger to transport supplies and soldiers from California to Saigon, Vietnam. After stopping to refuel in Guam, the L-1049 took off and disappeared over the Philippine Sea. There was no distress call, and the weather was clear - it seemed like the plane just disappeared. After a search by four branches of the armed forces, all 107 people on board were considered dead. The flying tiger has never been found. Since no remains were found, researchers cannot determine what happened with flight 739. In addition to assumptions about conspiracy theories, some witnesses claim that they saw smoke and a bright flash of light at the expected position of the aircraft.

Flight 427 USAir16

The 132 passengers who took the USAir Flight 427 waited for a short ride from Chicago to Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, within 10 minutes after take-off, the plane inexplicably fell sharply at speeds approaching 500 kilometers per hour. All 132 people on board died.It was one of the most deadly catastrophes in American history, and even veterans of war were scared by the picture of destruction. Researchers can usually determine the cause of a disaster within a week or two, but it took four years for Flight 427 to determine the cause of the failure. The auditors studied every imaginable theory and ultimately decided that the defect in the helm caused the pilots to lose control. Unraveling that secret, another question arose: did USAir know about the problems of the helm in their 737 aircraft? Similar disasters in the 1990s have already occurred, and some have argued that USAir could have prevented the tragedy. 427, if they explored other catastrophes more carefully. Many families of the victims have sued USAir Inc. and Boeing Co. The two companies decided to avoid the trial by paying almost $ 50 million.

Flight 800 TWA17

In 1996, Flight 800 TWA collapsed 12 minutes after taking off from John F. Kennedy Airport - killing 230 people. After a four-year study, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) concluded that defective wiring caused a spark that ignited the aircraft's fuel. However, this explanation contradicts hundreds of witnesses who say they have seen a streak of light hit the plane from below.These reports led some to believe that the plane was actually shot down by a rocket. Who could shoot a civilian plane? One of the dominant theories is that the US military mistakenly struck him during naval exercises, which were scheduled off the coast of Long Island on the same day. Other puzzles surrounding the case include explosive remnants of aircraft details, claims that the FBI has tampered with evidence and inconsistencies between radar data and official theory.

Flight 447 Air France18

In 2009, Flight 447 Air France inexplicably crashed and fell into the Atlantic Ocean - 228 people died. There was no distress call, and no one knew that the plane had crashed until several hours had elapsed when the pilots did not make their planned contact with the air traffic control. The aircraft on autopilot was supposed to be considered as safe as possible, and it seemed inconceivable for it to simply disappear. It was incredibly difficult to find the cause of the disaster — the wreckage was at the bottom of the ocean. The study seemed hopeless when the black boxes were not found after 30 days, their beacons ceased to give signals.However, the French authorities continued to search. In 2011, a private team was hired to work, and they found boxes within a week, as well as the remains of more than 100 bodies. It was determined that the plane crashed due to pilot error after the autopilot failed. Although the big secret was finally solved, many still wonder how experienced pilots (there were three on board) lost control of the aircraft in a completely manageable situation.

Flight 7 Pan American19

On November 8, 1957, Flight 7 Pan Am was just starting a luxurious world tour when it collapsed into the Pacific Ocean, killing 44 people. The wreck site was found a week later, when a US Navy aircraft carrier found bodies floating northeast of Honolulu. The authorities were unable to pinpoint the cause of the accident, but there are some curious facts about the crash. First, no distress signals were sent, and toxicology reports showed that some passengers had high levels of carbon monoxide. More than 50 years later, people are still looking for answers. Some current theories encompass revenge from an angry team member, insurance fraud and engine failure.
