Perhaps the most mysterious case in the history of aviation happened to Amelia Earhart,
The history of aviation known cases where the aircraft also showed no distress signal, and after the disappearance left no trace of debris.
Here are just some of the most notorious and mysterious plane crashes, which are not without mystery:
1. Air France flight 447 (2009)
This fatal air incident occurred in 2009 involving an Airbus 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, the Air France pilots had not filed a distress signal. A full-scale search and rescue operation for five days did not produce any results. Then there were found some fragments of the tail of the plane.
The search for the aircraft that crashed into the ocean, dragged on for two years. And after a year as a result of investigation it was established that ice crystals blocked air speed sensors of the plane – that is what led to the tragedy.
2. Flight TWA 800 (1996)
The Boeing 747 bound from new York to Rome, exploded in the air and fell into the Atlantic ocean. All 230 passengers aboard were killed. Experts from the National Council on transport safety found that the probable cause of the crash was a fuel tank explosion that occurred due to nespravny wiring.
However, conspiracy theorists believe that the cause of the explosion was planted on the plane a bomb or a collision with a missile naval forces of the United States.
In the course of last summer a briefing the national security Council confirmed that neither the testimony nor the wreckage was found, no record from the flight recorders do not confirm the assumption about collision of the plane with a missile.
3. EgyptAir Flight 990 (1999)
The Boeing 767, carrying out regular flights between Los Angeles and Cairo, crashed and fell into the Atlantic ocean shortly after takeoff. The disaster claimed the lives of 200 people. After 2 years of investigation it was established that the crash was caused by incorrect actions of the crew commander.
All collected by the National Council of evidence, including the flight path of the aircraft and data from the flight recorders indicated that the commander and senior assistant in the last minutes of his life trying to take control of the aircraft in their hands. A senior officer has said: “I rely on God.” This version did not suit the Egyptian side, and she brought in her the cause of the accident was the fault of the control plane.
4. The Plane “Cessna” (1972)
16 Oct 1972, member of U.S. Congress from the democratic party, Thomas Hale Boggs and Nick Begich policies, boarded twin-engine Cessna, which was headed to the capital of Alaska – Juneau. However the plane was never destined to deliver passengers to the destination he disappeared. Even a 39-day search, which was called “the most ambitious in the history of Alaska” because they involved 70 aircraft, yielded no results.
Were put forward different theories about the cause of the crash. It was rumored that the plane was shot down by the Serbs because of Croatian roots Begich. Another version pointed to the political past of Boggs, which was part of the Warren Commission.
5. Amelia Earhart (1937)
The mystery of the last flight of Amelia Earhart, the first woman pilot, still remains unsolved. In 1937 while trying to circumnavigate the flight on a twin-engine airplane Lockheed Model 10 Electra Amelia Earhart and her Navigator Fred Noonan disappeared in the Central Pacific ocean. According to one version, the plane simply ran out of fuel, on the other – Amelia Earhart and Frederick Noonan were captured by Japanese, who located in this part of the Pacific Islands military bases.
