The Bermuda Triangle Or The Devil’s Triangle

1139 words - 5 pages

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is the cause of many unexplained disappearances that happened within its boundary. One of the many mysteries of the triangle is Flight 19. Five Avenger planes vanished without even a single trace. What happened to Flight 19, did aliens actually abduct the planes? Or is there another explanation as to how they disappeared?

The points that form the triangle starts from the island of Bermuda; then to San Juan, Puerto Rico; and then finally to Miami, Florida.

At 6:20 p.m., Dumbo, a rescue plane was already in the air looking for the planes. Unfortunately, its antenna iced over and was unable to communicate anymore. After this unfortunate accident, more search planes were sent. They departed from Vero Beach at 6:45 p.m. and from Daytona Beach at 7:21 p.m. Training 32 and Training 49 also left Banana River at approximately 7:30 p.m. The search planes found nothing.
In addition, a Martin Mariner exploded during the search. It exploded around 7:50 p.m., although officials did not hear about this until 9:12 p.m. People may categorize this incident as another mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, but it is not. There is an explanation as to how it exploded. Martin Mariners were usually dubbed as, flying gas tanks. They were called, flying gas tanks, because of the fumes inside the plane. Even a tiny spark can cause an explosion.
The very next day, a massive search and rescue operation began. More than three hundred planes and ships were all searching for the five Avenger planes. Not only planes and ships were looking, land parties were also sent to look for the missing planes. They all searched the Florida coastline, Bahamas, and the Florida Keys. It was truly a massive search; imagine hundreds of vessels in the sea and the air. However, at the end of the day, they found nothing. They were not discouraged; they continued the search for more than a week. They checked all the areas again and again, hoping to find something, anything. However, it seemed that luck was against them, they unsuccessfully found nothing. Time passed and the hope for finding the lost planes finally dwindled to zero.
In 1990, an air-traffic controller decided to look for the missing Flight 19. He hired a mini-sub and was able to photograph an Avenger plane in 390 feet deep water. The last three numbers of its serial number was, 209. The serial number of the lead-plane of Flight 19 was, 73209. It is possible that the photographed Avenger plane was part of Flight 19!
If we take a closer look at this mystery, it might not actually be a mystery at all. There are several plausible explanations as to what happened to Flight 19.
The first cause is the failure of Lt. Taylor’s compasses, without a working compass, getting lost in the Bahamas is certain. Furthermore, during the exchange of messages between Lt. Taylor and Fort...
