Control Tower: “This is Venezuela, where did you just come from?”
The pilot exclaimed: “God! We are Pan American Airways Flight 914 from New York to Miami Florida.
Control Tower: How did you make such an error of more than 2,000 kilometers?
“Then the Airport personnel took a look at the airport staffs old diary and logs and in fact they did find It. Only it was July 2, 1955 that the plane took off,  a lapse of 35 years.
The surprised Airport staff said: “It can not be that you are who you say you are.

However after verification by Telex and fax with New York & Florida; Flight 914 did in fact fly on July 2, 1955 from New York to Florida, but suddenly went missing, the plane was never found and more than 50 passengers families had all been compensated for with death benefits by the Airline assuming the plane crashed in the sea. The people returned to the U.S. to their families at home, really making an even bigger surprise. Their Children and relatives were all old, and they were all still young. U.S. officials and scientists specifically checked the identity cards of the passengers and checked their bodies, that this was not a farce or fact. They story still remains a mystery.

The above story is circling the internet for some years now. 2008 | 20092010 | 2014 | and still today
So far there is no crash data, historical data, historical news articles, etc, to be found to verify this event.

The Source of the story found

After a long search i have finally found the source of the above story .. read on ..

This story was published three times by the fictional and satirical tabloid Weekly World News.;

On 7 may 1985, in May 1993 and on 7 sept 1999, running by the title ‘Riddle of Flight 914‘.


The Weekly World News was (and still is) a largely fictional news tabloid published in the United States from 1979 to 2007, renowned for its outlandish cover stories often based on supernatural or paranormal themes and a satirical approach to news. Since the Weekly World News began to publish online, its stories have occasionally been treated as legitimate news stories by readers unaware of the nature of the publication. Weekly World News ceased their print publication in August 2007. It was then published as an insert within The Sun magazine, with new material being printed alongside articles and columns from older issues, until Sun itself ceased publication in 2012.  In 2009, Weekly World News was relaunched as an online only publication. Its current editor-in-chief is Neil McGinness. ( … read more)

The Weekly World News originated as a spin-off from the National Enquirer, as a way of separating the spoof UFO and Bigfoot articles from the Hollywood gossip columns. The void left by the demise of the Weekly World News in the realm of U.S. supermarket tabloids is filled by The Sun, another major tabloid to focus on spoof pseudoscience. ( .. read more)

Weekly World News – 7 may 1985 – Page 25

The first time the story was published was on 7 May 1985, seven years prior to when fictional Flight 914 supposedly had landed in Weekly World News’s later stories.
In their first story, written by Derek Clontz, Flight 914 landed in March 1985, 30 years after Flight 914 departed in 1955.
The story includes an eyewitness;  an air-traffic controller by the name Juan de la Corte.
The story does nowhere mention the plane was a Pan American Airways flight.

The writer, Derek Eugene Clontz, Born: February 19, 1952. is a writer and herbalist who now runs his own website promoting his books about Elvis and Michael Jackson still being alive.

Derek Clontz is a writer of international reach with his articles on parapsychology, politics, conspiracies, cover-ups, health and fitness, intimacy and relationships, religion and spirituality, herbs and herbal remedies, the odd, the strange, the eerie, the fantastic, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, UFOs and extraterrestrials, Cryptozoic phenomenon and much, much more having appeared in thousands of newspapers and magazines worldwide in a career that so far spans three decades. He served on staff as a lead writer or top editor at mainstream and mass-circulation newspapers, including but not limited to Freedom Newspapers and Media General titles, and, in the realm of supermarket tabloids, “Globe”, “Star”, “National Examiner” and “The National Enquirer’s” iconic “Weekly World News”.

In the 2nd story they ran, Flight 914 had landed in 1992, 37 years after it departed in 1955, and 7 years later than in the first story they had published.
This story again includes the eyewitness;  air-traffic controller Juan de la Corte, this time along with a picture of Juan.
