Over the past few centuries, there have been countless major disappearances of ships, airplanes as well as passengers.
No traces of some of these ships, airplanes and passengers have been found since the day they've been missing even with search operations.
Some that were discovered were left abandoned for no reason, others that sent distress signals still disappeared after.
Section of the North Atlantic Ocean off North America
a vaguely triangular shape marked by the Atlantic coast of the Florida panhandle (in the United States), Bermuda, and the Greater Antilles.
In 1975, A librarian at Arizona State University known as Larry Kusche had researched his own theories and found a conclusion to the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. He investigated other articles and books that made claims about the mystery, after his research he published his own book which was entitled as “The Bermuda Triangle Mystery-Solved.” He discovered that many incidents that were portrayed as mysterious were not mysterious after all.
Other writers predicted the disappearance of these ships by effect of calm seas when Kusche found out that a raging storm was the cause
Other ships were vanished in a mysterious way even though their remains were found
Kusche researched one of these cases and found out that a ship listed missing was actually disappeared 3000 miles away in the Pacific Ocean

The USS Cyclops Sinking 1918
The largest ship in the Navy just disappeared without a trace. It has been travelling between the Batlic Sea, Caribbean Sea and Mexico since 1910. It disappeared while it was travelling around the West Indies to Baltimore.
550 feet long, with a crew of 306 people
Around 11,000 tons of manganese aboard
Her main goal was moving coal around the world and helping refugees. During World War I, she became a major naval asset as she assisted in the transportation of coals to other troops and ships
The last known message from the ship said “Weather Fair, All Well.”
The Fate of Flight 1945
Five Avenger torpedo bombers collectively known as “Flight 19” took from a Naval Air Station in Florida and were scheduled for a three-hour exercise which would head east from Florida coast and would practice conducting bomb runs at The Hens and Chicken Shoals place.
Consisted of students except for the Commander, a Lt. Charles Taylor. After an hour an a half of the flight leaving, Lieutenant Robert Cox was contacted from Taylor and he indicated that he was having problems with his compasses and believed that he was somewhere over the Florida Keys and was told by Cox to head north towards Miami.
Taylor was confused as he was flying in the wrong direction and ended up being lost. He had a lot of experience in piloting but had not spend too much time flying east toward the Bahamas which is what he was travelling to that day. He thought the flight was heading in the wrong direction and was heading south of the Keys instead of going East. A Dumbo flying boat was sent to find Flight 19 to guide it back in the right direction, after two hours of searching two more planes joined the search. The weather was getting rough and it was obvious that the Avengers would be very low on fuel. After a day, the authorities did not expect Flight 19 to be found, it was interpreted that the Avengers crashed due to their low fuel and was sent to the bottom of the sea. In 1991, five Avengers were discovered off the coast of Florida but after observing the plane’s ID number, it showed that it was not Flight 19. It seems as if the resting place of Flight 19 and their crew rests in the Bermuda Triangle mystery since no other explanation can be found.
It was a tanker ship consisted of molten sulphur that disappeared off the southern coast of Florida. There were 39 crew members travelling inside, the last message sent in a routine radio message was nothing unusual and everything seemed fine. However, after a while, all communication with the ship failed, a search operation was launched, prior 19 days of the missing tank, only debris and life preservatives were discovered. There were no trace of the crew members or the ship itself.
SS Marine Sulphur Queen Vanishes 1963
Debris of SS Marine Sulphur Queen
The Tragedy of SS El Faro 2015
This tragic incident of the Bermuda Triangle is known to be the worst incident in over 30 years. This 790 feet ships was travelling from Florida to Puerto Rico consisting of 33 members on board. It was also carrying large containers, vehicles and trailers. A storm that was hundred of miles away unfortunately developed into a hurricane causing circling around the huge ship causing this ship to sink. There was no communication traced from the El Faro. After search operations which took several weeks, the ship was discovered in one piece and was located 15,000 ft in the Atlantic Ocean. However, no traces of any bodies of the crew members were found.
Jennifer Blumin, a 40 year old mother of two sons and an event planner was travelling with her boyfriend and her sons in her private Mitsubishi MU-2B-40 aircraft, she was on her way back from Puerto Rico to spent Mother’s Day there and was returning to New York. Her boyfriend was flying the plane himself (he was an experienced pilot). The Miami air traffic was unable to trace aircraft radar when it was 37 miles east of Eleuthera in Bahamas, the weather was perfectly normal, the aircraft randomly vanished. The following day, a search operation by the US Coast guard was launched and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force joined the search operation as well, some debris of the Mitsubishi MU-2B-40 was discovered on the Atlantic Ocean however there were no trace of the bodies.
Has the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle finally been solved?
Scientists assume that they have found a solution to the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. On UK Channel Five, a new documentary explains possible outcomes of the mysterious disappearances, the scientists on the show recreated rogue-wave surges to demonstrate the effect of ships caught in the grip of the waves that rise up to 30 m in height and they last for only a few minutes.
USS Cyclops Model
A model of the USS Cyclops (went missing in 1918) that had 300 people on it, they showed how easily a ship this large could have been overcame by the water and snapped in half due to the strong force of the wave.
Another explanation predicts that the location of the triangle is at a perfect meeting point for three types of different storm systems which creates the ultimate conditions for the formation of rogue waves
Other possible explanations include eruptions of methane gas that could’ve been trapped under the oceans floor leading to low water density causing the sinking of ships. Hexagonal clouds above the area of the Bermuda Triangle which causes the ability of high speed winds creating gigantic waves which causes planes to crash
