While it’s not something that we generally like to think about, planes can crash for any number of reasons; sometimes there’s a mechanical error, sometimes the pilot makes a mistake, and sometimes it just seemingly happens. Regardless of how the accident occurs, it’s very rare for no bodies to be found after the crash.
On March 15th, a plane went down in Ontario, Canada. Police scoured the scene for all of the clues they could find, but they were still left scratching their heads. There was no body – alive or otherwise – to be found anywhere. Authorities on both sides of the border were left scratching their heads.
Here’s what we know about the ‘ghost plane’:
The aircraft that officials are now referring to as the “ghost plane” was a rented Cessna Skyhawk 172 from the Ann Arbor area of Michigan. It’s presumed that the aircraft ran out of fuel mid-flight.
The crash site was by the north shore of Lake Superior in Ontario, Canada.
When police arrived on the scene, they anticipated finding at least a pilot. Strangely, there was no one around, nor were footprints found anywhere nearby that would suggest someone had survived and gone to search for help.
