The ship stopped in Barbados to load more fuel and from there it needed to arrive in Baltimore, but it never did.

Later, in 1941, the ship that replaced Cyclops disappeared in the same place.

On the first place on our top Bermuda’s Triangle incidents we find the latest disappearance, from 2008 after which this supernatural phenomenon seems to have stopped. A British-Norman Islander took off from Santiago airport flying to New York and had 12 passengers. After 35 minutes the plain went up and  was off the radar around West Caicos Island. Despite the massive search the plane was never found.

Bermuda’s incidents made this area a mythical part of the Atlantic Ocean. A lot of airplanes and ships have vanished into the thin air. Some pilots could manage to make radio contact and told the operator that they were disoriented while passing the area and then disappeared for ever. Many other aircrafts and ships could not even send SOS calls before vanishing. But since 2008, such disappearances have stopped but the point to ponder is what made them start in the first place?
