The strangest part of this mystery is that it led to one of the largest searches in history, yet no sign of wreckage or bodies was ever found. Keep in mind that this was only last year, so modern tools could have been used.
2016 Indian Air Force Disappearance

On July 22, 2016, an Antonov An-32 twin-engine transport aircraft belonging to the Indian Air Force disappeared while flying over the Bay of Bengal. There were 29 people on board at the time: 23 passengers and six crew members.
Radar contact was lost at 9:12 AM, and the ensuing search and rescue operation would become the largest in Indian history. Sixteen ships, a submarine, and six aircraft were deployed to aid in the search in and around the Bay of Bengal. On September 15, 2016, the mission was called off, and all aboard were presumed dead.
Now for a plane, especially a military craft, to disappear that completely in this day and age is almost unheard of. Certainly seems a tad mysterious to me, but what do I know?
Coffee out on the patio this morning, where it is supposed to be a little cooler.
