It’s one of the most maddening, frightening and simple of facts – sometimes things just disappear, never to be found again.
Virgin Media decided to investigate some of the most famous cases of disappearances.
Amelia Earhart was the much-adored face of modern exploration and adventure. When she vanished, Earhart was attempting a circumnavigation of the earth, 1000 feet above the equator.
After suddenly losing direct contact, aviation authorities reportedly fielded odd and infrequent transmissions from Earhart for up to four days, which would be impossible had she simply drowned.
