1 Airplanes That Disappeared Without A Trace on 3rd May 2014, 11:20 am


Malaysian Airlines flight 370 went missing for
weeks, creating one of the mysterious events in
aviation history, but it's not unprecedented.
The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
has left experts perplexed, leading to a variety of
unsubstantiated theories about what might have
happened. Unfortunately, if history is any judge, it's
possible we may never know. Here are five other
examples of missing flights that vanished without a
trace, and remain unsolved to this day.
1.Amelia Earhart
Perhaps the most famous missing pilot in history,
Amelia Earhart vanished over the central Pacific
Ocean near Howland Island in 1937 during an
attempt to become the first female to
circumnavigate the globe by flight. Though some
clues have emerged over the years, and theories
abound , Earhart's plane has yet to be found.
A recent discovery off the coast of Nikumaroro
island, an uninhabited tropical atoll in the
southwestern Pacific, offers new hope that the
Earhart mystery may soon have a resolution. A
sonar scan has revealed what some experts
believe could be Earhart's crashed Lockheed
Electra plane, and an expedition to the island is
scheduled in 2014 to look into the findings. Lending
credence to the evidence, researchers have
previously found what appears to be a jar of '30s-
era freckle cream on Nikumaroro island, along with
an American-made woman's compact, buttons and
the zipper from a flight jacket.
Could this be Earhart's final resting place? We'll
have to wait for the expedition to know for sure.
