When American tycoon Steve Fossett failed to return from a solo flight over Nevada in September 2007 no-one could understand how such an experienced pilot could vanish into thin air. When Fossett’s wreckage was found in the Sierra Nevada Mountains by a lone hiker in October 2008, many believed the story was over. However, ITN Factual can reveal that Fossett’s plane is one of hundreds to have vanished from the skies above Nevada in the last 50 years. The Mystery of the Nevada Triangle reveals how more than 800 planes have crashed or disappeared in a triangular area of Nevada – that’s far more than the Bermuda triangle – and in an area half its size. We’ll examine the theories behind these missing and crashed planes. These range from military intervention over Area 51 to suicide and extraordinary climatic conditions.
