The mystery of flight PK404

Tue Jan 14, 2020 3:37 pm

On August 25, 1989, PK404 departed Gilgit for Islamabad. The Fokker F27 is believed to have crashed in the Himalayas but has been missing ever since. Will the wreckage ever be found?

Wow, flight number 404. Missing aircraft, “Error not found 404”. Stuff is nuts

Air India 245 and 101 in 1950 and 1966 respectively both crashed on Mont Blanc, in almost the same spot.

Wreckage and debris was still being found in 2017.

So someone will stumble on it one day perhaps, but in a very rural low population area, it may not happen or take a long time before it does get found.
