Bermuda Triangle: The Mysterious Disappearance Of Flight 19

Bermuda Triangle: The Mysterious Disappearance Of Flight 19

The Bermuda triangle is part of the world's busiest shipping route, with a large number of vessels sailing daily to America, Europe, and the Caribbean. The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Triangle of the Devil. The word "Bermuda Triangle" was first used by Vincent Gaddis in his 1964 article in the magazine Argosy. This Devil triangle appears to be one of the most mysterious places on earth. Located off the southeastern coast of the United States in the Atlantic Ocean, between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico, the region has become the center of unsolved mysteries. For centuries, the Bermuda triangle has been perplexed as a horrifying patch of oceans, where sailors and pilots are prone to lose interaction with the natural world and disappear without a trace. Also, the Bermuda Triangle has been blamed for the disappearance of thousands of people in the last decades.

One of the most enigmatic mysteries linked to the Bermuda triangle is the disappearance of Flight 19 - in December 1945. It was an event that would ignite the controversy surrounding the infamous Bermuda triangle, and even now, more than 70 years later, experts are still wondering what caused the mysterious disappearance of "Flight-19."

Flight 19 was a group of five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that disappeared over the Bermuda Triangle on December 5, 1945, after losing contact during a U.S. Navy overwater navigation training flight from Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All 14 airmen were lost on that flight. The Navy immediately scrambled search planes to hunt for missing Flight 19 and their crew members. A pair of PBM Mariner flying boats departed from an air station north of Ft. Lauderdale. The plane – and its 13 crew members – never returned, either, while searching for Flight 19. 

There were no reports of major ocean storms. There have been no reports of any crashes in the area. And there was no wreckage ever found. Six aircraft, and 27 crew members, simply disappeared. The seaplane is commonly believed to have exploded shortly after take-off. Professional investigators assumed that the PBM would most likely explode in mid-air while searching for a flight. Because flying boats were notoriously accident-prone and even called "flying gas tanks" because of their propensity to catch fire. As they were known to accumulate flammable gasoline vapors in their bilges. 

The next day, more than 300 ships and aircraft were dispatched by the Navy to search for Flight 19 and the missing Mariner. The search team spent five days combing more than 300,000 square miles of territory. But no one ever found any debris or bodies. Navy investigators were unable to determine the exact cause of the loss of Flight 19. Some books and fictional portrayals have indicated that electromagnetic disturbances, parallel dimensions, and alien abductions may all have played a part in the tragedy. But no one knows the actual reason of disappearance of Flight-19.
