Six cases of the most mysterious aircraft disappearance all time

Malaysia Airlines aircraft with flight number MH370 is still missing. There is a possibility the plane went down or destroyed in the air. However, it can not be confirmed because until now none of the aircraft debris were found. We want to take this opportunity to convey a sense of grief to the families of the victims and may they always be perseverance.

Back to the article, case of loss of the aircraft is not the first time that happened. History had recorded at least 6 cases of loss of the aircraft, which until now has not been solved. What are the cases? Let us refer to the information summarized from the Mirror.

Earhart, who was also the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, lost around Howland Island, Pacific Ocean. Up to now, the aircraft are flown by Earhart undiscovered.

There are many theories related to her disappearance. The theory simply states that her plane ran out of fuel and crashed into the sea. Meanwhile, some say that she was a spy for Franklin D Rosevelt and eventually caught by the Japanese.

There is another which states that the plane crashed on an island in Japan, and Earhart died there. Other states, Earhart survived and moved to New Jersey and changed her name. In addition, of course, some say that Earhart abducted by aliens.
