Douglas DC-3









NC16002 disappearance



On December 28, 1948, a Douglas DC-3 aircraft, number NC16002, disappeared while on a flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Miami. No trace of the aircraft or the 32 people onboard was ever found.

From the documentation compiled by the Civil Aeronautics Board investigation, a possible key to the plane's disappearance was found, but barely touched upon by the Triangle writers:
the plane's batteries were inspected and found to be low on charge, but ordered back into the plane without a recharge by the pilot while in San Juan.

Whether or not this led to complete electrical failure will never be known.

However, since piston-engined aircraft rely upon magnetos to provide electrical power and spark to
their cylinders rather than batteries, this theory is unlikely.
