The Ghost Plane of New York, 1933
One of New York’s oldest unsolved mysteries is the Ghost Plane. On December 26, 1933, every airport in the New York City area was asked to turn on their landing lights in hopes that an airplane heard circling the city during a snowstorm might be able to land. Attempts to contact the plane by radio had failed; no one knew who was flying it or where it had come from. By nightfall, the NYPD was fielding numerous calls from people seeing and hearing an airplane flying dangerously close to the ground, as if looking for a place to land. But then the ghost airplane simply disappeared. No crashes were reported, nor were any airplanes or pilots ever reported missing. Nearly 80 years later, the ghost plane and its pilot is still a mystery.
