The interesting or to say unique about this little area is that many ships and aircraft are said to have vanished in thin air under suspicious occurrences. Many people have credited these dissipations to the supernatural aka paranormal or even acts done by extraterrestrial beings aka aliens.

In 1941, a Navy ship called the USS Proteus was carrying 58 passengers and a cargo of ore from St. Thomas to the East Coast when it suddenly vanished in the Bermuda Triangle. One month later, its sister ship, The USS Nereus, disappeared with 61 people along the same route.
