The Bermuủa triangle Charles.
Along the way they discover a doll floating in the water, which Diana Marvin—the family's youngest daughter—takes as her own. Diana appears to become possessed by the doll, and starts saying that everyone will die, and telling people the order they will die in. She also locks the ship's cook in the freezer, who almost dies before he is freed. One night, the ship follows a Fresnel lens signaling an SOS even though nothing appears on the radar. They abandon the search after the signal identifies itself as a ship that was lost years ago. The ship reaches its destination and the crew begins a scuba exploration of some underwater ruins. A submarine earthquake disturbs the ruins and crushes the legs of Michelle Marvin, the family's eldest daughter.
Flight 19 was still in radio contact with the Fort Lauderdale air base, but after some mechanical difficulties they failed to switch to an emergency frequency.
Radio recordings indicate that some of the crew believed they were heading out over the Atlantic Ocean , instead of the Gulf of Mexico as their leader reported. A search plane took off and was claimed to have disappeared into the Bermuda Triangle with Flight The plane actually blew up 23 seconds after takeoff.
Wreckage from Flight 19 has never been recovered. Other aircraft that have disappeared in the area include a DC-3 carrying 27 passengers in and a C Globemaster with 53 passengers in Among the ships often listed among the mysteriously disappeared are the Mary Celeste , the Marine tankership Sulphur Queen with 39 men aboard , and the nuclear-powered submarine Scorpion with a crew of 99 The Mary Celeste entered the list of supposed Bermuda Triangle mysteries many decades after its odd tragedy.
The ship set sail from New York to Genoa , Italy, but was found sailing unmanned some miles off course, off the coast of Africa. Personal articles of the crew were found and food storage areas showed no sign of upheaval.
A tattered sail and a missing lifeboat suggested the boat had encountered a storm, but the ship's log, in which information was recorded as late as nine days before the ship was found, made no mention of any kind of catastrophe. There is no evidence, however, that the Mary Celeste ever entered the area of the Bermuda Triangle. Still, the eerie, unanswered questions concerning its fate are often cited by those who attribute a malevolent force as being responsible for odd and tragic events of the triangle.
Nevertheless, there are many documented disappearances that occurred within the triangle.
They include a four-engine Tudor IV air-plane lost in , with 31 aboard; an American freighter, the SS Sandra , which sunk without a trace; a British York transport plane, disappeared in , with 33 aboard; a U. Navy Lockheed Constellation airplane, vanished in with 42 aboard; a U. Navy seaplane, , with a crew of 10; a French freighter in ; and a German freighter, Anita, lost in with a crew of Theories about why so many air and water ships disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle involve strange magnetic fields, time warps, the lost continent of Atlantis , and alien abduction.
Other proposed explanations include physical forces unknown to science, a "hole in the sky," and an unusual chemical component in the region's seawater.
Several books have suggested that an intelligent, technologically advanced race living in space or under the sea has been responsible for jamming equipment and leading ships and planes to disaster. Many books and articles play up mystery angles concerning vanished ships by depicting the disappearances as having occurred in calm weather and daylight.
Such particulars of Flight 19 as an inexperienced crew, a faulty compass, a squadron leader who failed to follow instructions, and conditions of deteriorating weather and visibility are often not mentioned. Larry Kusche, a librarian at Arizona State University, examined claims of mysterious disappearances and recorded evidence from each example.
The results, published in The Bermuda Triangle—Mystery Solved, showed that many of the accidents happened during raging storms, or were later explained. The area known as the Bermuda Triangle is one of the two places on Earth where a magnetic compass does point towards true north, a phenomenon called compass variation.
Navigators must compensate the amount of variation or the craft they are on will go off course. Unfortunately, Charles Berlitz's facility with language did not carry over into credible research or scholarship. His books on the paranormal — and on the Bermuda Triangle, specifically — were riddled with errors, mistakes, and unscientific crank theories.
In a way, the Bermuda Triangle is largely a creation of Charles Berlitz's mistakes. Kusche would later note that Berlitz's research was so sloppy that "If Berlitz were to report that a boat were red, the chance of it being some other color is almost a certainty.
In other cases, the ships and planes were real enough — but Berlitz and others neglected to mention that they "mysteriously disappeared" during bad storms. Other times the vessels sank far outside the Bermuda Triangle.
It's also important to note that the area within the Bermuda Triangle is heavily traveled with cruise and cargo ships; logically, just by random chance, more ships will sink there than in less-traveled areas such as the South Pacific. Despite the fact that the Bermuda Triangle has been definitively debunked for decades, it still appears as an "unsolved mystery" in new books — mostly by authors more interested in a sensational story than the facts.
In the end, there's no need to invoke time portals, Atlantis, submerged UFO bases , geomagnetic anomalies, tidal waves, or anything else. The Bermuda Triangle mystery has a much simpler explanation: sloppy research and sensational, mystery-mongering books. Fort mentioned an example of these. Huge luminous wheel shapes appeared on both sides of the steam ship Patna in With the spokes of these wheels, some to metres long to yards , they were observed to whirl around, brushing the sides of the ship, and in that position continued alongside the ship for about twenty minutes p They left the Fort Lauderdale Naval Air Station and flew degrees for 90 km 56 miles to the Hen and Chicken Shoals where they were to conduct bombing practice.
Afterwards they were to continue on the same course for a further km 67 miles , then to proceed degrees for km 73 miles , then degrees in a final km mile leg which would return them to their Fort Lauderdale base.
Then, in attempting to use a number of small islands as navigational aids, Taylor, who was unfamiliar with the area, apparently mistakenly identified several of these small islands as being located in the Florida Keys.
On this basis, he appears to have assumed that if they flew northeast they would eventually reach Florida and their base. Unfortunately, they had actually flown past the The disappearance in the triangle on 5 Decem- Bahamas and this course took them further ber of Flight 19 was to be the primary cat- out into the Atlantic and away from land.
With The Bermuda Triangle — Page 2 enough fuel to remain airborne until about hours, pm, Kusche , p , they apparently continued on that course, and as their distance from land increased their radio signals became weaker and weaker, until they could no longer be heard.
Taylor had instructed the students at about pm that when they were down to their last ten gallons of fuel left, they should all ditch into the sea together. Their last message was heard at pm and some time afterwards, they apparently crashed into the sea.
The five aircraft, and all of their crews, were never to be heard from again. It seems that they would have had little chance of survival. Winer suggested another possible problem. After Flight 19 disappeared naval investigators examined other Avengers for possible clues to the loss. They found that, probably due to the hot Florida sun, the life rafts in some of the aircraft were so badly perished that it was impossible to remove them from their storage compartments p 4.
If the aircrews of Flight 19 had experienced such a situation, they would have been forced to face the stormy seas in nothing but their heavy flying gear. These conditions were confirmed by the captain of the British tanker Viscount Empire. According to McDonell , they had been located northeast of the Bahamas at about the same time as the last message was heard from Flight 19, and had advised Air Sea Rescue in Florida that they had encountered high velocity winds and extremely high seas.
Kruszelnicki indicated that the waves may have been as high as 15 metres, about fifty feet high, p He had a poor reputation as a pilot who tended to fly without using his instruments.
While serving in the Pacific he had twice become lost, run out of fuel and ditched into the sea, and required rescuing on both occasions.
Subsequent evidence also suggests that on this particular exercise he had not bothered to take a plotting board, a most basic piece of navigational equipment, along with him. McDonell later spoke to former TBM pilots and they all agreed that ditching in such conditions the aircraft would probably have It appears that all of the aircraft in the flight also lacked clocks. Normally standard equipment, these clocks were frequently stolen.
Skeptics SA During their pre-flight checks, a mechanic had noted that none of the aircraft in the flight had clocks fitted. McDonell Taylor was heard to ask other flight-crews on several occasions for the time, suggesting, as Kusche noted, that Taylor was not wearing a watch.
