Good Day World!
There’s nothing like a mystery to get people’s attention.
I’m talking about that Malaysian Plane that vanished recently.
News reports say there were two passengers with false ID’s aboard that flight, and the CIA isn’t leaving out the possibility it’s disappearance is terrorist-related.
As the days gather with no solid news on where the plane went, expect conspiracy theories to start popping up like wild mushrooms in the spring.
Meanwhile, to put this all in perspective, there’s been other passenger planes that have vanished without a trace.
The first recorded passenger plane to disappear was in 1938 when the Hawaii Clipper (Photo above), a Martin flying boat, on route from Guam to the Philippines.
The plane left Guam at 6:00 p.m. CST, and last contact was made at 10:03 p.m. CST.
The pilot reported over the radio that he was 565 miles from the Philippine coast, and was flying through “layers of clouds and moderately rough air.”
Eerily similar to the current Malaysian Airline case, a “thick oil area” was found on the ocean surface where the plane was suppose to have gone missing.
The search proved fruitless, and it was called off on Aug. 5, 1938.
The Hawaii Clipper‘s disappearance was the worst Pacific Ocean airline accident at that time.
There is a website devoted to the missing plane.
