The story of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is one of the most bizarre we've seen in the air travel industry in the 21st century. With all the tracking devices on our phones, in our cars and aboard our airplanes, how is a large jet and hundreds of passengers able to vanish off the map?
It's not unprecedented, even in the last decade. Here are five other aircraft disappearances that puzzled the world, leaving no sign of its whereabouts for days, months or even years.

Is that one Iranian dude holding a laptop in that airport photograph?
Why would there HAVE to be one. I don’t know anybody with a sat phone, they’re really expensive and only useful if you regularly find your very far into nowhere.
Hit by an errant meteorite and vaporized no doubt.
The Air France flight in 2009 is the only relevant one of the five and it was found five days later.
EMP would have taken everything out. Engines and hydraulics as well. It would have dropped where it was.
There would have been something left. Even if it was just a smudge.
They left out Oceanic 815.
While passengers were sleeping cabin was slowly depressurized at high altitude, passengers are incapacitated or ultimately die from lack of 02. Thus why nobody tries to call out, all on board plane phones switched off, cell jammers may have been brought aboard.
ROP can get simplistically devious with simple common materials.
Why would anyone on that flight have an Iridium phone? The only people I know with those are yachtsmen, and I travel internationally a couple times a month.
Geez, people, you don’t need to jam the cellphones—they don’t work onboard!
The hijacking begins with BOTH transponders being turned off, 14 minutes apart. I'm speculating on the state of all the passengers and their inability to communicate by whatever means possible. Or were they not aware of anything unusual during the flight?
If I was to steal a jumbo jet I would not be so complacent upon believing that philosophy. Cover any possibility the Evil Satan USA has some form of satellite or Predator drone nearby that can intercept even a simple cell phone call.
From a plane at 40,000 feet even.
Am I thinking too hard? LOL
How long can a passenger stay conscious at 40,000 feet altitude without pressurized oxygen?
