The Wreckage of a Plane Stolen by a Homesick Serviceman May Have Been Found

Wreckage of a Hercules plane that was missing for nearly 50 years may have been found.

??Back in May of 1969 American Sergeant Paul Meyer was a Chief Mechanic at a U.S. air force base in the UK.

??After having his application rejected to return back to the United States early to see his wife Jane, Meyer heavily drank one night and decided to go anyway.

??This lead Meyer to pose as a captain, order a Hercules C-130 to be refuelled, and set a course for Langley, Virginia.

??Meyer possessed a private pilot’s license but was not trained to handle the large military cargo plane, especially on the long route over the Atlantic.

??After a rough take-off, Meyer made his way over the English channel where radar contact was lost.

??A later report said eyewitnesses saw the plane drop from the sky and explode in the water upon impact.??Now, nearly half a century later divers from Deeper Dorset may have found the wreckage but are not revealing the location.??A spokesperson told SWNS they want to piece together the wreck along with the help of experts and treat it like a crime scene in order to discover what exactly happened that fateful night.

??SWNS went on to report it is not known if Meyer may have crashed after losing control or was shot-down in order to stop him from crashing into a populated area.????????????????
