The Great Mull Air Mystery

image

In 1975, a pilot in a small plane makes a mysterious unscheduled night flight, and goes missing.

Several months later, the pilot's body is found, close by the air base from which he took off.

His plane is found even later, sunk in the ocean.

Did he jump from the plane in mid-air? No injuries consistent with that.

Did he escape the downed plane and swim to shore? No traces of sea water on the corpse.

Read the details here of this still-baffling enigma.

Alien probing went awry and they just dumped the body.

Seems to have been easier to find a missing Cessna in the 1970s than a missing Boeing 777 these days. Timely find of an old story.

Drunk, near sighted pilot with an expired license took off at night in a rapidly building sleet storm that lasted for three days!
As to how he ended up on the ground dead from exposure, his stated plan was to slow down and jump out! so anything is possible! :roll: :coolsmile:

He was murdered and the rest was a set up to cover it up I tell ya! Just ask Colombo or J.B. Fletcher!
