Another jet disappeared back in 2003
March 16 , 2014
For those who think that a flight has never disappeared before, Vocativ reminds them that another jet took off in 2003 and hasn't been found ever since. The difference is that there were no passengers on the aircraft but the circumstances surrounding its disappearance are quite strange.
Two mechanics boarded the Boeing 727 in order to get it in shape and investigators still don't know what caused the disappearance. Few of the theories regarding it have been that it secretly landed or crashed into the ocean.
The large Boeing jet was the largest plane to have gone missing at the time but the Malaysian jet will take that label if it's not found.
