Flight 401 Crash Site Hauntings

Definition: Reports of haunting at the Flight 401 Crash Site.

 

[On] the site where Eastern Air Lines Flight 401 crashed in December 1972. 101 people died - 75 survived. Many perished in just 18 inches of water because of the swampy conditions. A very popular book called The Ghost of Flight 401 was published soon after, telling the story of multiple sightings of Flight 401's captain and second officer in subsequent years on board other Eastern Air Lines flights.

[The] location is also considered the site of a possible haunting due to reports from the initial search and recovery. Teams in johnboats swore they heard whimpering and screaming around the swampy crash site, but when they searched there was no one to be found. One searcher had the uncomfortable experience of seeing a pale, eyeless body floating just beneath the water - he turned to tell his colleagues about the find, and when he turned back to the same spot, it was gone.

Eerily enough, ValuJet Flight 592 crashed just two miles north of this spot in May of 1996, killing all 110 people on board. A marker and memorial stands at that location, but to date no permanent memorial marks the site of the crash of Flight 401.

To this day when air boat captains take passengers on night tours of this area, the tell that passengers hear and see things for themselves, such as phantom faces and moaning noises. If you tour this location, ask the air boat captain if they will take you to the area.
