A Plane Disappeared And Landed 37 Years Later

, , 100 Comments


Ladies and gentlemen, this is captain speaking. Welcome aboard Flight 914! Please fasten your seatbelts and observe the
no smoking sign— we will take off in 5 minutes. When we’re at the cruising altitude, refreshments
will be served to you. Our flight will take 37 years. I wish you a pleasant trip. What would you do if you went on a vacation
to another city and suddenly found yourself in another country altogether? I guess more adventurous types would even
enjoy such a change of plans, but most of us would be confused. Anyway, I bet even the most reckless of adventurers
would at least raise an eyebrow if told they’d flown for close to half a century. On July 2, 1955, Pan American Flight 914 made
its way from New York to Miami, Florida. It was a fine sunny day, and 57 passengers
on board the plane were looking forward to seeing the warm beaches and palm trees of
Florida. The plane took off without trouble, but 3
hours later, when it should’ve already landed at the destination airport, it was nowhere
to be seen. Radars of the control tower in Miami didn’t
show any approaching aircraft, and no distress signals were received either. When air traffic control contacted the New
York tower, they got a perplexing reply: Flight 914 just disappeared from the radars in mid-air. Everything indicated that the plane was lost:
apart from having vanished from the radars, air traffic control couldn’t get through
to the pilots with the radio. The DC-4 simply vanished in thin air, leaving
no trace of itself or any of the people on board .
Investigation was started right away. The flight route took the plane over a part
of the Atlantic Ocean, and it seemed that the only explanation of its vanishing was
that It crashed somewhere along the way. Rescue teams were deployed, the Coast Guard
was scanning the waters, but still no luck. Not a single piece of the lost plane was to
be found. Investigators could only shrug their shoulders
in dismay: 61 people (passengers plus the crew) just blinked out of existence along
with a huge flying machine. Eventually, although the case was never really
solved, there was an official statement that the plane crashed, taking the lives of everyone
on board. But despite numerous — and understandable
— questions from the grieving relatives, no one could say what really happened to Flight
914. Until 37 years later, at least… Change of scenery. It’s now September 9, 1992, and we’re
in Caracas, Venezuela. It’s a perfectly normal day for Juan de
la Corte, air traffic controller at the Caracas airport. He turned up at work, made some coffee, and
took his seat, overlooking flights. He was giving some minor comments on a flight
in progress when something weird happened. Seemingly out of nowhere, a new dot appeared
on the radar. It was as if an aircraft had just popped up
from nothingness, or as if it had been hiding from the radar and now decided to show up. Either way, it was a strange thing to see
near a civil airport, and de la Corte checked the readings several times, thinking at first
that it was a mistake. It wasn’t, though: the readings were correct,
and soon he and his colleagues were able to see it with their own eyes. In less than 10 minutes, the culprit showed
up in the field of vision. At first it looked to the air traffic control
like an ordinary airplane, but as it got closer, they could see that it was, in fact, very
old: a DC-4 McDonnell Douglas passenger aircraft, still with propellers instead of modern turbines. Such planes were still in use, but they’d
grown obsolete and mostly replaced by more contemporary ones. But that wasn’t even the beginning of weird. The real confusion began when the pilot of
the mysterious aircraft contacted the tower and asked in English, “Where are we?” As the one in charge at the time, Juan de
la Corte replied they were closing in on the Caracas airport and asked where the flight
was headed. There was a pause on the other side, and then
the pilot answered, “We are Pan Am Flight 914 heading from New York to Miami, Florida,
with a crew of four and 57 passengers on board.” This took the air control completely off guard. What was a Pan Am flight doing 1,100 miles
away from its point of destination? And how did it even get there? De la Corte was quick to ask a few more questions
to the pilot, and what he heard next baffled him. The pilot said his flight was scheduled to
land at the Miami airport at 9.55 am on July 2, 1955. Now it was time for the tower to fall into
silence. Before asking anything else, not to make matters
worse, air control cleared the plane for landing. De la Corte didn’t know what to make of
the pilot’s words — perhaps he thought he went insane, but that was irrelevant since
there were people on board the mystery airplane. He had to make sure they landed safely, and
decided he would ask questions when they did. Ground units were immediately called to assist
the plane and the passengers, and it landed without trouble. Having relaxed a little bit, Juan finally
decided to ask something that bothered him. “Do you know today is May 21, 1992?” Another pause that ensued told him it was
a huge mistake to say that. As the ground crew approached the airplane,
the pilot’s bewildered voice on the radio said, “What are you talking about?” When de la Corte heard that, he knew he would
have to order security guards to go to the plane and escort the passengers and the crew. However, as they were moving towards the aircraft,
the pilot did something nobody expected. Juan heard the flight captain’s panicky
voice saying, “No! Stay away! We’re leaving now!” And indeed, he started the engines again and,
without waiting for take-off clearance, taxied the plane to the runway. Juan tried to stop him over the radio, telling
him he was creating a dangerous situation, but the pilot didn’t respond. He simply drove to the runway, accelerated,
and took off. For some time, the plane could be seen in
the air, soon it only appeared as a dot on the radar, and then… it vanished again. No words could describe the shock Juan de
la Corte and his colleagues at the air control tower were in. They’d just seen an old airplane appearing
out of nowhere, the pilot telling them he was headed to Miami, and before they could
do anything, it flew away again, only to disappear in thin air like it had been a collective
hallucination. No trace was found of that plane ever again,
and to this day, no one can explain what happened that morning in Caracas. Sniff sniff. Smell that. Smells kinda fishy right? I must say, though, that there’s much dispute
about the credibility of this event. Back in 1985, a tabloid called Weekly World
News was the first to cover this story, and yes, I’ve just said 1985 — seven years
before the most popular version appeared. Later, the same newspaper retold the story
twice more, only with other details, and with 1992 set as the date of a time-traveling aircraft
appearing in the future. The picture of Juan de la Corte, the air traffic
controller in Caracas, also differed from the 1985 original. So the story was largely announced fake, and
it became a sort of an urban legend. However, the legend still lives, and many
sources retell it in their own way. Some even go as far as to say that the passengers
of the plane eventually returned to their homes, and strangely, none of them looked
a day older than 37 years prior, while everyone they knew grew old at a humanly pace. They say doctors examined the pilot, the crew,
and the passengers but couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary — the people were healthy. This part doesn’t look even remotely credible,
though, because no solid piece of evidence can be found about 61 people returning from
a decades-long flight. I mean c’mon, wouldn’t they have run out
of snacks? One thing that keeps popping up on the Internet
and piquing the interest of paranormal enthusiasts is a small pocket calendar that somehow was
left on the Caracas airport runway when the notorious plane took off. The thing about it is that it’s from 1955,
and it allegedly remains the only artifact of that weird encounter. There are still people who claim the calendar
is real, but once again, there’s no actual proof of its existence. Ah well, who knows, maybe it’s just a tall
tale, an urban legend indeed; or it could be a huge conspiracy to hide the fact that
time travel is possible. I guess we’ll never know. Wink wink. And what do you think? Was Flight 914 really lost in time for 37
years, or is it all just a hoax? Let me know down in the comments! If you learned something new today, then give

    If your going to make a fin at least make it plausible. A. Pan Pam ceased trading a year before this incident, that should have alerted the ATC. Probably the frequencies would have changed since 1955. The pilot would have been low on fuel so would not have taken off no matter what the ATC would have said.

    here's what I think happened/the pilot veered off course into the Bermuda triangle,and coming out of it,went off like a time warp away from its intended target,close to caracas/remember the magnetic fields in the Bermuda triangle,and i'll bet the compass went way off,too

    Maybe it's a miracle?🤔
    Cause the plane disappeared
    For no reason😮
    Or they must be in space for 37 years then came back🤔
    And surely when they left it disappeared again. So it must be a miracle🤔

    The only possible explanation could be that the plane some how entered light speed meaning that the plane was faster than the speed of light so to the passengers and pilot though it was only a few hours but on ground it was regular time being light speed is faster than earth speed

    Well I think the only logical explanation is that aliens saw it, abducted the plane, took it back to their planet for what they thought was a short time, then found out they couldn't stand being around humans, so the aliens erased their memory of the experience and then returned the plane.

    So maybe the flight DID disappear for 37 earth years but what If there was a time pocket that they flew into or something and just stayed there frozen until one day they just appeared. It’s the only explanation. If not one piece of evidence or distress call was made then there is no other explanation

    Maybe the plane by mistake went in a bermuted triangle by mistake because airplanes and boats disappear there

    maybe the plane has fallen into some time hole and it has been a minute for them, whereas 37 years have passed here on earth for us 🙂 i’m thinking about why the world press is changing the story like nothing happened ??

    time travel somehow seems to exist yet whenever it happens it does so randomly and mentioning the current time usually creates things like that the poeple from that time in the past arent supposed to be in the future it woulld create some time rift otherwise i still dont know what makes things like that happen but even if it is true in some case's most of the time since there are mental poeple in the world its not taken seriously like not even investigated

    i dont know for sure but in a way i asume it to be better in most case's because it woulld most likely change alot about time itself and how it is percieved and a lot of other things i dont know about

    asuming they woulld know they travelled trough time most likely asuming they woulld tell someone about this they woulld disapear in their sleep and end up back in their time and at best have an extra day to live having mabey any memorie's of that incident only to themselves even if someone ends up believing them it woulldnt be of use in that time since there is no wat of testing it and any altered time line where person woulld be believed ends up being blocked in their progress because of how the world works because of a few higher ups if there are those that know of its possability and if there are none in said case it is later either forgotten by the person who experiance'd it cause they live their live's thinking it to be a delusion or they know what needs to be known and do something with that knowhedge but not on a big enough scale to be of use to the world and then yes there is indeed the poeple who actually are mental that think they did x and didnt the problem is that no matter how you look at those happenings there is not yet a way or technology to separate one from the other that can not be cheated and if there is it isnt for consumer use

    anyone busy with research on that topic specifically? woulld be interesting to have a chat with that person just to find out how far this version of earth is on said topic
