At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

ON THIS DAY IN WEIRD


On This Day in Weird, June 23...

1950: Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 2501, carrying 58 passengers and crew, meets disaster in the so-called "Great Lakes Triangle," while en route from New York City to Minneapolis, Minnesota. The DC-4 aircraft's last radio transmission places it at an altitude of 3,500 feet over Battle Creek, Michigan, preparing to change course due to bad weather around Chicago. Later, scattered light debris and human body parts were found afloat in Lake Michigan, but searchers never find the airplane's wreckage.
