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 half way up a hill and over a mile from the Isle of Mull airfield, where he had taken off from. Nobody could find his plane and nobody could find any injuries.

Ever since the discovery of his body there have been many speculations as to what happened to him. From gun running to aliens—why was he flying that plane and where did that plane go?

A media sensation was caused in 2013 when the 4,000 year old statue of ancient Egyptian Neb-Senu was caught rotating on camera.

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. By the time the media covered the story—reports of mutilated livestock were rife and many believed in the wild phantom cat.

Who knows… and more than likely nobody ever will.
