A Pilot without a Plane
Experienced Pilot Peter Gibbs took a late night flight in his plane and never returned on Christmas Eve of 1975. Months later, his body was discovered halfway up a hill and over a mile from the Isle of Mull airfield, where he had taken off. Nobody could find his plane, and nobody could find any injuries.
Ever since the discovery of his body, there have been much speculation as to what happened to him. From gun-running to aliens—why was he flying that plane, and where did that plane go?
Spinning in the Case
A media sensation was caused in 2013 when the 4,000-year-old statue of ancient Egyptian Neb-Senu was caught rotating on camera. The statue, housed at a museum, turned 180 degrees while locked inside its glass museum case. There are those who believe the curse of the Pharaohs is to blame.
What actually caused the ancient relic to spin is a mystery.
The Giant Bodmin Beast
First spotted in 1995, the huge black panther was seen roaming Bodmin Moor.

Hundreds of sightings later, nobody has ever discovered where the giant cat came from and nobody wanders the moor at night…
We All Fall Down
An annual marching band show was taking place in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire on July 13, 1980. 500 children were taking part in the show, but at 10:30am they all started to collapse. A huge majority of the kids suffered fainting attacks, nausea, sore eyes and throats and nobody knows what caused this unanticipated event. Was it fertilizer? Was it mass hysteria? Who knows… and more than likely, nobody ever will.
