The truth about the flight suddenly disappeared, 37 years after landing, 57 passengers are still as young as the original

For a long time, people spread about the story of a plane mysteriously disappearing and then reappearing 37 years later. Now, the truth about this mysterious incident has finally come to light.

The flight mysteriously disappeared 37 years later

The story goes that Pan Am flight 914 of Pan America was scheduled to take off on July 2, 1955, going from New York to Miami (USA) with 57 passengers and 4 flight attendants. But not long after taking off from New York, air traffic control staff lost signal with the flight. The Pan Am 914 is a DC Douglas aircraft, which has completely disappeared from radar and there is no sign of the accident or the bodies. No one knows what happened to the plane.

After an investigation, authorities concluded the plane crashed and all passengers and crew were killed. The wreckage of the plane could not be found, so it was assumed that it crashed at sea. As a result, the airline has compensated all the families involved for the death benefit.

37 years later, something very strange happened. On September 9, 1992, at Simón Bolívar International Airport, Caracas, Venezuela, a DC-4 Douglas appeared out of nowhere and was not even greeted by airport radar.

Juan de la Corte, an air traffic controller who plays a key role in the Pan Am mystery. He was the one who spotted the DC Douglas on the radar. Accordingly, he heard the question from the pilot of Pan Am: “Where are we?”. “We’re a Pan American Airways flight, going from New York to Miami with four crew and 57 passengers,” the pilot said. This made Juan extremely surprised and shocked.

The report said the Pan Am 914 had gone in the wrong direction about 1,800km. Juan was confused by this information but he quickly asked a few important questions and cleared the way for the plane to land. After that, the air traffic control staff continued to be shocked when they heard the pilot say: “We are scheduled to land in Miami at 9:55 am on July 2, 1955.” Juan confirmed to the pilot that they were landing in Caracas and that it was May 21, 1992. In addition, Juan was shocked when he saw the plane, it looked so outdated.

After Juan told the pilot the date, the air traffic control team could hear passengers panicking and screaming. Juan ordered security to escort passengers off the plane. However, the pilot asked them not to approach and then let the plane take off. The plane disappeared into the clouds, leaving no trace. Jets were sent to locate the unknown plane but were unsuccessful. But there are reports that the plane and its passengers have been identified just hours after they disappeared from Caracas. Reports suggest that the plane has reached Miami.

Sources also say that the plane landed in Miami just hours after leaving Caracas. Naturally, the Miami airport staff were as shocked as Juan. They have a lot of questions for this mysterious plane. Finally, they let passengers and crew leave the airport to return to reunite with their loved ones.

What shocked families and others, however, was that the passengers on board did not age. They still look like they did in 1955. People have been wondering where this plane has been for the past 37 years, how can it fly without running out of fuel and why are the people on it so young?

The truth is revealed

The story of Pan Am flight 914 has been circulating on the Internet for years and is a hot topic on UFO and time travel forums. The most common theory is that the plane passed through a time portal or wormhole. Instead of landing in Miami in 1955, it showed up in Venezuela 37 years later. One person even suggested that the plane returned to the wormhole after leaving Caracas. Clearly, it is not yet fully understood how wormholes or time portals work.

However, later on, the truth was revealed. The disappearance is a complete fabrication. It stems from a story that was first published in 1985 in the tabloid Weekly World News. This newspaper specializes in writing such crazy, fabricated stories and it published the story about this plane twice in the 1990s.

The story went viral when the Bright Side Youtube channel posted a video about the disappearance. The video quickly garnered more than 15 million views, and it exposed details that weren’t included in the original Weekly World News story. In two reprints of the case, the newspaper used pictures of two different men, claiming they were witnesses. The picture of the DC Douglas they posted is actually the DC-4 available on the Alamy website taken in 1935.

In addition, according to the investigation of Snopes, the disappearance of Pan Am 914 was only reported on Weekly World News. Thus, we can confidently conclude that this is just a fictional story. However, it is undeniably very attractive to readers and there are many people who still believe in absurdities like this.
