A Plane Mysteriously vanished In 1955 And Returned 37 Years Later

Is it mystery or false news? Is it true or a myth? The plot revolves around a passenger airplane that took off from New York on July 1, 1955, and mysteriously vanished from the radar. Then, 37 years later, it reappeared in a Caracas airport, according to several witnesses.

Despite large-scale search activities, the aircraft crash site could not be located in 1955. Neither had any car components been discovered. Absolutely nothing.

There is no possibility of locating the passengers and crew. A feature that has given rise to several inquiries and speculations.

Until the unbelievable happened.

Let me begin from the beginning. Finally, I’ll tell how it ended and give the moral. This story has taught me a lesson that has caused individuals to discuss it amongst themselves.


The jet took off from New York early in the morning, and everything went fine. The plane was a Douglas DC-4, which used propellers rather than turbines like today’s planes.

On July 2, 1955, the flight was scheduled to arrive in Florida three hours later, at 9.55 a.m.

But it never came. And it didn’t arrive anyplace else for another 37 years!

But what actually happened?

Here is what we know…

When air traffic control called the New York tower, they received a perplexing response: Pan Am Flight 914 had vanished from radar.

What occurred? Why wasn’t the radar intercepting the passenger airplane anymore?

“Everything pointed to the plane being lost.” Even via radio, air traffic control was unable to contact the pilots.”

So the hunt started. One theory was that Pan Am Flight 914 had crashed.

sunk in the Atlantic Ocean

A collision in which 61 people would have perished. But it was only a theory. Because some proof was never gathered.

Every time a plane crashes like this, some remains are discovered. Whether it falls to the earth (which would be clear in this scenario) or into the sea.

Even in the water, part of the plane’s wreckage would float to the surface and be discovered. Nothing was discovered in this instance.

1 – The pilots had not transmitted any maydays or appeals for assistance over the radio. Complete quiet.

2 — No aircraft fragments were ever discovered.

It looked to have vanished into thin air. For years, this narrative piqued people’s interest and piqued their curiosity.

Everything became a mystery when clear explanations and proofs were not uncovered. It happens often. This is in comparison to numerous theories and hypotheses, including some unusual ones.

However, no explanation could explain what occurred to Pan Am Flight 914 with confidence.

The most likely assumption was that it fell into the Atlantic Ocean.

Until something fantastic happened, which transformed this narrative into one of the strangest and most fascinating things I’ve ever heard.


Let me get right into what was claimed to have occurred 37 years later.

The description of the 1992 report, the evidence of Juan de la Corte, an air traffic controller at Caracas airport.

It was as peaceful on his tower as it was every morning until a green dot appeared out of nowhere on the radar. It shouldn’t have been there because no flights were scheduled to arrive. Suddenly…

The Pan Am 914, as it had vanished, had reappeared. But Juan was still in the dark.

The McDonnell Douglas DC-4 appeared on the radar in less than ten minutes.

At first glance, it appeared to be a conventional airliner about to land (although none were planned).

“But then Juan and the others recognized there was a problem: it was an ancient plane.” By the 1990s, all planes had turbine engines. “It also had propellers.”

The mystery jet contacts the control tower, asking, “Where are we?”

The pilot was requested to identify himself by the control tower.

“We are Pan Am Flight 914, in way from New York to Miami, Florida, with a crew of four and 57 passengers on board,” the answer says.

The control tower workers were startled into silence at this time.

What was a Pan Am airplane doing 2,188 kilometers away from its destination? And how did it end up there? Ground forces were promptly dispatched to assist the airliner and its occupants. Without incident, the plane landed.

Juan decided to ask the pilot a subject that had been bothering him once he had recovered. “Did you know it’s September 9, 1992?”

After a long stillness, Juan heard the terrified pilot remark, “Jesus Christ, Jimmy, where are we?” No! Keep your distance! Let’s get started!”

In fear, the second pilot flung his arms out the window, accidentally dropping something. The pilot restarted the engines and, despite Juan’s attempts to halt it, pulled the jet to the runway and took off.

For some time Pan Am Flight 914 could be seen in the air, but it soon vanished into thin air again. The pilot of the plane probably realized he was in some strange place, a “different world”, and in terror, he flew away.


What occurred after they flew for 37 years? What had happened to them?

Had he truly arrived in Caracas and then left?

Is it the product of a skewed version or a fabricated story?

This is a contentious story, to say the least. First and foremost, the astonishing tale that occurred in Caracas was covered by the tabloid “Weekly World News.”

A publication that was already aware of the story of the plane that went missing in 1985. It was seven years prior to the claimed sighting.

Following that, the same newspaper published two further versions, each of which changed something (such as the portrait of Juan de la Corte) and added some details.

As a result, the event has become an urban legend that no one rejects or verifies, with the sole true witness being a little calendar from 1955 that would have fallen off the plane when it landed and then took off again.
But what about the passengers?
The control tower’s eyewitness?
His testimony was not covered in any other major publication. There is little data to back up what appears to have occurred 37 years later.

The rest of the story is essentially a fantasy. Perhaps an overblown word of mouth. Or a person looking for attention.

Or a reporter having fun.

There is no truth. No apparitions occurred 37 years later of Pan Am 914.

But why was all this narrative born around an event that happened many years ago?

I’ll be honest, in this case, there was really a Best Seller novel written on this story.

But what can we learn from this story? Certainly an interesting lesson.

“That is, humans are not accustomed to accepting NON-ANSWERS.” We cannot agree that it is a MYSTERY: there are no explanations worthy of an answer.”

What occurs next is when the guessing begins. Assumptions are acceptable as well, as long as they are grounded in fact.

Instead, the longer the riddle remains unexplained, the more inventive and bold the hypotheses get.

But what does it signify in real life?

Simple: if you don’t know the facts regarding a disagreement with a friend, coworker, employer, or partner, here’s what you should do.

“Always go further into the facts, ask questions, and request additional details.” And, if you haven’t found a specific solution, make any conclusions or assumptions as realistic and reasonable as possible.”

Pan Am 914 is most certainly, and regrettably, at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. And it is a part of the catastrophes that occur from time to time.
