List of missing aircraft

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of missing, and once missing aircraft that disappeared in flight for reasons that have never been definitely determined. According to Annex 13 of the International Civil Aviation Organization, an aircraft is considered to be missing "when the official search has been terminated and the wreckage has not been located".[1] Some of the incidents listed here include aircraft that were once widely reported as missing but have since been recovered. This list does not include every aviator, or air passenger that has ever gone missing (See: Category:Missing aviators and Category:Missing air passengers for extended lists on that matter).
