The last Aircraft had just safely landed
in the air traffic control tower
a unified sigh was expelled by them all
as the tension within released
their long twilight shift had now ended
from nowhere a plane descended!
No blips were observed on the radar screen
nor radio contact received
soon could visibly see it from the windows
a twin turbo prop like a shadow
did a text-book landing on the unlit runway
what strange forces were at play?
The fire service and base security alerted
sped to the unexpected scene
they could only watch this spectacle
unfolding before them below
the markings and airline were unknown
from where had it flown?
On the tarmac it seemed lifeless ghostly
armed police waited agitated
as steps were hastily wheeled into place
nothing stirred as the door
was forcibly opened they rushed aboard
into a domain yet unexplored!
What they found was a new experience
an unbelievable sight before them
rows of skeletal remains in their seats
clothed in a very old style garb
appeared no sign of panic or any threat
on the fate passengers had met!
On the flight deck both pilots were found
bony hands on the controls
but how could it land nothing was alive
there was no power on the craft
soon discovered it departed from here
but soon after did disappear!
This happened sixty years ago to that day
no Trace was ever found
until somehow it landed where it had left
the mystery was kept quiet
all evidence hidden from public exposure
so there could be no closure!
Years later a reporter was told of the case
who dug deep the truth to trace
any enquiry to seek out further information
blocked so never got confirmation!
He did persist but had a fatal accident!
