Before I begin, this post was moderator approved.
This topic is to (hopefully) solve or at least try to solve an aviation mystery that very few have heard of.
F-BPJK, an Air France 727-200 was found at LFLP airport, surrounded by overgrown weeds and abandoned for some time. Inside, seats and overhead bins were broken, and blood was found splattered on the walls and ground. Blood was also found in the cockpit, which was stripped bare.
After doing some digging myself, I found some pictures that I will post below as well as a few topics on other forums that discussed this but with no definite conclusions. Some theories are:
What we know:
Airline: Air France
Age: 52 years
Serial #: 20202
Yes, it has flown before
Some things to know/consider:
Aircraft was hidden from google maps and made invisible at the airport when too many people started looking into it.
Air France tried to cover up the case, claiming that it was a decompression, and then stripping, repainting and hiding the aircraft.
I was able to find no survivors/witnesses/articles online.
Now for the data:
Please note the pictures contain blood and evidence of trauma so do not click if you are squeamish/have PTSD.
Some possibly useful links (although they don’t lead to conclusions)
here is where it seems to have rested but was then removed sometime between October 2003 and early 2004.
If you want to investigate and find out what happened here, then go ahead, you would be the first. If you have any questions, ask ahead. This is a solving thread so if you find any useful/helpful information, post it here, and I will regularly update the OP. Please do not post speculation/guesses if there is no evidence or proof of what you are stating.
F-BPJK was painted white as it was scheduled for retirement. Shortly before it’s retirement flight, it suffered a decompression above the alps. It made an emergency landing at Annecy, and being deemed unable to fly again, it was grounded and locked at a remote area of the airport, with the rear stairs left open for some reason. This is when some vandals/criminals came and splattered human blood and broke/stole everything in the cabin and cockpit, making it the current bloody mess until it was removed in early 2004 to be scrapped.
Some may jump to conclusions saying that it was a decompression but many loopholes can be found (ex. why is the blood still red instead of oxidixing and turning brown?)
This topic was moderator approved and should be fun, so let’s stay civil and not ruin the joy this time :)
Have fun, stay safe, stay civil and let’s try to solve this case!
