There are several cases in which airplanes, submarines and even vessels have disappeared and there is still no answer as to what happened.
Below is a list of the most mysterious cases not yet resolved.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370
On March 8, 2014, Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, with 239 people on board, took off from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing (China), however, disappeared after an hour’s journey.
In three years three fragments of the apparatus have appeared in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa.
Despite the investigations, in 2017 the search for this aircraft was concluded without success.

The American Airlines Boeing 727
On the fact, the hypotheses have been varied, such as that it was a criminal act or that the aircraft was stolen by terrorists. The mystery is still valid.

Flight 19 and the Bermuda Triangle
On December 5, 1945, five US Army planes, a group called ‘flight 19’, departed from Fort Lauderdale in what would be a training exercise.
A short time later, the communication was difficult and the commander reported that they were lost.
The disappearance of the 14 men and the aircraft occurred in the area known as the Bermuda Triangle, which includes the Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami islands.

The UB-85 submarine
In 1918, during World War I, the German submarine UB-85 finally sank off the Scottish coast. Commander Gunther Krech, who was rescued along with the crew, gave an unexpected statement.
According to him, a “monster” had attacked the submarine. Later, in 2016, the remains of a ship that could belong to the UB-85 were found, however, there is still no confirmation of what happened.

The Mary Celeste Brig
The brig Mary Celeste was found sailing empty in the Atlantic Ocean towards Gibraltar, in 1872.
There were not 10 crew members on the boat nor were there any signs of a violent scene.
Over the following years, the hypotheses included stories of poisoning, gas leakage and even pirates, but none was confirmed and Mary Celeste, the “ghost ship,” remains an unsolved mystery.

Amelia Earhart
The disappearance of Amelia Earhart is possibly the most famous unsolved aircraft mystery.

The pioneer of aviation, 39, and her co-pilot took off on May 20, 1937 from California with the mission to travel the world, but they did not succeed, they disappeared days later.

The last thing they reported on the radio was: “We are flying in north and south directions,” according to Earhart’s biography.
After an intense search for about 402,335 square kilometers of ocean, the United States stopped the investigation.

Although today there are many theories of what could have happened, the mystery remains unsolved.
