The recent history of flying from Malaysia Boeing shocked everyone’s imagination. As the plane iron mass, which on Board were 227 passengers could disappear without a trace? Until recently, search teams could find no trace of the crash, no bodies, no black boxes — the fate of the aircraft was a real mystery. Recently, it was found that the missing Boeing 777 crashed in the South Indian ocean. However, the aircraft disappeared to him, he’s not the first and certainly not the last.
1. The Boeing 727 is stolen from an airport in Luanda, Angola
May 25, 2003 from the airport Quatro de fevereiro was stolen Boeing 727-223. He belonged to American airlines Aerospace Sales & Leasing and at the time of disappearance was leased to the Angolan airlines. The plane was faulty, and its fix was supposed to work two people — Ben Charles Padilla, a certified flight engineer and aircraft mechanic license private pilot, and his assistant John Mikel Mutant. None of them could steal the plane: the attendant could not lift it to the sky, and law-abiding Padilla was only licensed private pilot. After they boarded the plane, he began to move erratically along the runway. The crew has contacted dispatchers and took off, not including transponder. Since then, no aircraft, no people, nobody has seen.
Theoretically at the helm could be a Padilla. It is believed that Angola did not pay the contributions on the lease and he was hired to return the aircraft to the United States. Another opinion says that both the people had been detained on Board against his will.
2. At the beginning of the Vietnam war with the U.S. military plane disappears in the sky over the Pacific ocean

Failed to find any traces of the crash, no bodies. After communication with the aircraft was lost from the tanker which was nearby, reported that in the sky there was an explosion.
Sabotage? The problem? The problem with the engine? Nobody knows.

4. Amelia Earhart disappeared trying to fly around the globe
The first female pilot who crossed the aircraft of the Atlantic ocean. Disappeared while flying over the Pacific ocean, near the island of Howland.
Earhart was looking for, but found no trace. It is believed that she was unable to land on Howland island, and she ran out of fuel.

The most pleasant version: Earhart returned home, changed his name and began to live a quiet, normal life.
There are witnesses (I wonder how they could see this?), which assert that saw, how the plane landed on a desert island Nickumaroro. In 1989 he tested this version on the island found human bones, women’s cosmetics, shoes and cans of cream from freckles. Who to believe?
