In 2003, an American aircraft mechanic and pilot named Ben Padilla went to Angola to supervise a team that was refurbishing on old Boeing 727. The job was successful and the plane was ready to leave the country, when suddenly something inexplicable happened. One night, when the plane taxied onto the runway for a regular engine test, it made an unauthorized takeoff and flew toward the Atlantic Ocean. No one has heard from either the plane or Ben Padilla ever since – which is odd, as it takes a crew of at least three to pilot a 727 and Padilla was not qualified to fly that type of aircraft in the first place. The FBI, CIA, and US Departments of State and Homeland Security all investigated and found nothing.
