A mystery that never un-folds – the Bermuda Triangle

By Stuart Owens Subscribe to RSS | February 14th 2012 | Views:

An imaginary triangle covers the boundaries of Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean and the Atlantic East to the boundaries of Azores. The place was first named as “Miami Triangle” as it borders the coast lines of the city. But objections were raised and the reason given was that the tourist attraction for Miami will reduce. Next, it was named as “Puerto Rico Triangle” and similar objections were raised by the city. And finally the triangle was named “Bermuda Triangle”. The word Bermuda is also known as Isle of the Devils and seemed a fitting name for the triangle. The triangle is known for the mysterious accidents or rather the fatal disappearances that happen there.

One of the noted and major incident happened in the year 1945. Flight 19 was used by the US Navy for training. The flight had five TBM Avenger Bombers and was lead by Charles Taylor, an experienced commander with 13 trainees. The flight took off on December 5, 1945 at around 2.10 p.m. the flight took off for regular training along the coast of Bahamas. But the flight did not return by the scheduled time and the last message was received from the commander at around 7.00 p.m. various reasons were pondered from the captain’s tendency to get lost to explosion. But till date the reason’s un-known. Two martin mariners (flying boats) were sent to the rescue of the flight, but one disappeared in thin air and was never found. The next major mysterious accident happened in the year 1972 on 4th December with the ship Mary Celeste. It was also popularly known as the Ghost Ship. The ship was found without a single person on board while she was still on sail. She was finally located off the coast of Portugal. There was no sign of violence or disruption or violence in the ship. It looked liked the crew willingly abandoned the ship. However it was believed that the ship held some evil power as it met with a lot of disasters and changed a lot of hands. Apart from this belief, there is no logical explanation as to the disappearance of the crew from the ship.

In the year of 1948 on the 30th of January, an aircraft called the star tiger was flying to Bermuda from Santa Maria. It was a 12 hours journey from there and the crafty was expected to land at around 5 a.m. but the time had come and gone but there was no sign of the flight and it was never found again. The most possible explanation given for this was that the flight was flying at a very low altitude due to a storm and out of fatigue the crew might have miscalculated the altitude and run the plane in to the sea. The most mysterious incident of all happened with Witchcraft a luxury cruiser which was owned by an hotelier Burrack. Before the Christmas on December 22nd in the year 1967, he took his cruiser in to the sea along with his best friend in order to show him the view of the Christmas time lights from the sea. Burrack called the coast guards informing them calmly that his boat has to be towed and it did not sound like an emergency as he informed them that they were only a mile off from the shore. When the coat guards reached the place in a matter of minutes, the boat was nowhere in sight and was not found even after an intense search.

And there have been many more incidents down the years. All these incidents can be presumed to have happened because of some default with the transport or problem with the crew or the cause could also have been because of nature. But too many incidents have happened at the same place to call it a coincidence! Catch up on the facts and other features of Bermuda Triangle when it comes on your Cable Tv the next time!
