Hello everyone! Do you like mysteries? Then this story is the one for you! We will be talking about a flight that could have possibly time-traveled. Enjoy!
It was a sunny July day in 1955. In New York, the Pan American 914 was going to take off. It was headed to Miami, Florida. There were 57 passengers onboard and 7 crew members. The take-off was fine, but what the people onboard didn’t expect was to stay in the air for 37 years.
Three hours after it took off—when the flight should’ve already reached Miami—it disappeared. The Miami flight control tower was extremely shocked, and quickly contacted the New York flight control. The New York flight control said that the Pan Am flight had just vanished into thin air.
Investigation started immediately. The Pan Am flight had flown over a chunk of the Atlantic Ocean. Government officials thought the plane had crashed, so rescuers searched the waters. Nothing of the plane was found, and researchers had no clue of what could have possibly happened. But, there was a statement that the plane crashed. Nobody knows how it happened, though.
Now, it is May 21st, 1992, in Caracas, Venezuela. Juan de la Corte was just getting ready for work. He entered, got a drink for himself, and sat down. Suddenly, a new dot randomly appeared on the radar. He was shocked, and didn’t believe it for a few minutes. He thought there was something wrong with the radar and checked it. Nope, everything was correct. It was as if the dot had just appeared out of nowhere.
Soon, the flight was visible. At first it just looked like a normal airplane, but then Juan noticed it was an old airplane. It still used propellers instead of modern turbines. He wondered how the plane got there. A minute later, the pilot asked Juan, “Where am I?” Juan was shocked, but he still answered. “You are entering the Caracas International Airport in Caracas, Venezuela.” Juan asked the pilot to give some information about himself.
“We are flight Pan Am 914 with 57 passengers and a crew of 4.” Juan decided to tell the pilot to land. Landing was safe, and Juan asked them another question. “Where are you headed?” he said. “We are headed to Miami, Florida,” replied the pilot. “We are expected to arrive on July 22, 1955.” That left Juan in silence for a minute. “Do you know that it’s May 21st, 1992?” The pilot gasped. “What do you mean?” he shouted into the radio. Juan called security guards to escort the passengers off the plane.
But the pilot yelled, “No! Stay away! We’re leaving now!” He was taxiing the plane onto the runway when Juan warned, “No! You are creating a dangerous situation! Stop!” But the pilot ignored and took off anyway.
To this day, we only have one piece of evidence about the airplane: a calendar of 1955 which was left on the runway where the Pan American flight was. We are not sure if the flight will ever be seen again. So that’s all for now! I hope you enjoyed this story!
