Flights of No Return
Aviation History's Most Infamous One-way Tickets to ImmortalityBook - 2015
Discover the mysterious, controversial, and sometimes downright eerie history of flights that didn't end as planned. The history of aviation is full of accounts of history's most spectacular flights. But what about the ones from which someone failed to return? A celebrated millionaire, who also happened to be the world's foremost aviator, lifted off in a small plane one clear morning in 2007 and disappeared. The glamorous son of a beloved fallen president took off on a hazy summer night in 1999 and plunged himself and two others into the Atlantic Ocean. A US Navy blimp landed one Sunday morning in 1942 in the middle of a city street in California with no one aboard. Some of these "non-returns" occurred because of errors in judgment; others were intentional, and some resulted from causes still unknown.
