SINCE 1948, 83 aircraft have been declared “missing” from our skies.
The planes shown in red below have the capacity to hold at least 14 passengers and no debris or bodies have ever been recovered. Only three of these aircraft — marked in blue — have been found after extensive searches.
The data, compiled by the Aviation Safety Network, highlights the five planes missing near or in the Bermuda Triangle.
The latest missing flight — MH370 — is shown on the map which makes it clear this is not a rare occurrence. It is yet to be seen whether what happened to the Malaysia Airlines flight, with 239 passengers onboard, will remain a mystery forever
