4. Miracle Flight 571
In 1972, an airplane coming from Uruguay and heading to Chile disappeared in the Andes caring 45 people abroad. Because of the bad weather and the pilot’s limited flight skills, the aircraft crashed high in the mountains.
Instantly, 11 people died. Although the plane was eventually found, the mystery of what had happened persisted for the next 72 days and they were all presumed dead.
However, the survivors had to deal with starvation, avalanche, low temperatures and so on, some of them even had to turn to cannibalism in order to survive.
If you wish to find out more about this incredible story some of the survivors wrote books about the event, one of them being called ,,Miracle in the Andes” written by Nando Parrado.

There is another such triangle off the Pacific coast of Japan, called the Devil’s Sea, because of centuries of boat disappearances. Now, international planes pass through this triangle daily, particularly those from the US. where when the Japanese archipelago is reached the planes from the U.S. turn south and follow the Japanese coast down o Tokyo’s International Airport. Several years ago, on a return to Japan on a scheduled flight that was to arrive at about 5 P.M The flight from Seattle takes almost 9 hours to the minute. After 8 hours had passed and it was evening with Japan to the right, a quite surprising and excited announcement came from the pilot. He said, “Look out of the windows! It’s sun shining, bright as midday! Ladies and gentlemen,” he continued, sounding amazed .”We are approaching Tokyo International Airport and it’s 11 A.M!”
Also astounded, we all looked out and the sun was up, verifying what he had said. We landed six hours ahead of the scheduled time! The rush to telephones, including me, to tell friends, and who-have-you of the strange early arrival astounded them as well. Now, it has been said that such a sudden change in timing surely must be registered somewhere at the airport, that a change from an evening sky to a morning sky like that would certainly be noticed by those on the ground. No such change was ever noted. If that captain made a report, I don’t know. The officials at the airport would certainly also have been astonished at whatever the pilot announced about arriving six hours early. That, I don’t know, but my friends said nothing of that nature happened. It was 11 A.M in Tokyo, that’s all they could say. No “tailwind” would have pushed such a plane to arrive six hours ahead of time. How the pilot would have seen from the cockpit such a drastic change from evening to morning would certainly have been notice, although it seems he wasn’t even aware of the change, until the plane’s clocks, or whatever it was, shocked him and there it was: Morning outside!
Strange happenings. Something must be fishy at the Bermuda Triangle. I’m surprised it was never investigated.
Another disappearance of a fateful plane. Of course, everyone knows these disappearances are permanent. These planes never return. Where do they go? Who knows? To another world, another solar system, perhaps another universe? Or universes???
Yes, these occurrences are all strange but there are even stranger things. I could list you some, but I think you should discover them yourselves.
That Malaysian disappearance was so spooky on so many levels. I swear a UFO snatched that plane out the sky or it flew into a black hole or something.
I followed that one when it happened for a long time. That was really crazy. That one had to have blew up or something more strange happened to it. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one that watched the news about the disappearance. I prayed they would find those people. I think they are still looking though.
WHY IN ?HEAVEN’S NAME with all science has to offer and has allowed to happen, we still can’t find even a car in a lake. Why? Because it means work, either physical, or God help us, we use our brains and physical bodies, one step at a time.
The last time I was on a Plane, was 1995, & I NEVER plan to get on another one. All the Terrorism, stupid fights from odiots, & such…I feel safer on the ground. No one never knows the fate, of the Pilots & Passengers…Planes are just too Dangerous….
it seems to me,being as those flights were all in good shape when they left for their destination and encountered a UFO or some kind of another world. we dont know anything about our planets workings, inside or out to space. no sign for some till it was too late. as for the others that were never found, use what you beleive in.
