The Bermuda Triangle is also called the “Devil’s Triangle”, that is an imaginary area that can be roughly outlined on a map (“Bermuda Triangle”). The Bermuda Triangle is located in the Atlantic Ocean (Troupe 6). It was discovered off of the southeastern coast of Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda, making the shape of a triangle(Rudolph 7). People say the Bermuda Triangle is about the size of Texas (Rudolph 7). It covers about 500,00 miles of water in the Atlantic Ocean (Rudolph 7). The Bermuda Triangle also covers straits of Florida, the Bahamas and the entire Caribbean Island, each about 1000 miles long (“Bermuda Triangle Map”). No one will be able to find it on the map, sailors or pilots that are sailing or flying will not know if they have …show more content…
Ships and planes disappearing were common in the 1800’s and early 1900’s (Rudolph 10). Disappearances have mostly taken place near the southern part between Florida and Puerto Rico (“Bermuda Triangle Mystery”). Numerous amount of ships sailing through the Bermuda Triangle or planes passing over it have disappeared without a trace (“Bermuda Triangle Mystery”). More than 1,000 ship and planes have disappeared over the past five centuries and continue to do so (“Bermuda Triangle Mystery”). Oceanographers (scientist who study oceans) believe that natural causes, such as storms, compass failures, hurricanes, lack of radio on board, and structural weaknesses (“Creation Tips”). Most say that there were no human errors, equipment failures or even natural disasters (“Bermuda Triangle Mystery”). Countless amount of people suspect that the Devil is at play here, that is why it is also called the “Devil’s Triangle” (“Bermuda Triangle Mystery”). Stories about men and women traveling across the Bermuda Triangle and making it is a rare situation. In 1880, a British ship began in Bermuda but failed to end in England. About 300 people were aboard. No trace of the ship and crew were ever found (Rudolph 10). Another story about a United States Navy training called Flight 91 flew across the Atlantic Ocean for training. There equipment stopped working and after about three hours all five planes disappeared and were certainly not coming back (Rudolph

What really happened over the summer in 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico? People have debated this topic countless times. Despite all of the deviations of what happened, there is a general timeline. Sometime during the months of June and July 1947, an aircraft landed in Mac Brazel’s ranch; Brazel proceeded to tell Sheriff George Wilcox. He sent a member of the Roswell Army Air Field base to look at the wreckage on Brazel’s ranch. This person took some of the debris back to the base for further inspection. On July 8, 1947, the newspapers published stories about how someone found a flying saucer in New Mexico. However, the government told the newspapers to report that it was merely a weather balloon that had crashed. After that, everybody simply accepted the story and dropped the topic. Throughout that story, many pieces of evidence went untold to the media. There were numerous pictures that went unreleased. Many affidavits went unnoticed and nobody paid attention to inconsistencies in the government’s justifications. Because of explicative photographs, several eyewitness accounts, and contradictory government explanations, there is extensive proof that the government concealed an alien landing in Roswell, New Mexico.
A skeptic once argued “trying to find a common cause for every Bermuda Triangle disappearance is no more logical than trying to find a common cause for every automobile accident in Arizona” (“Bermuda Triangle”). Although some theories may be more plausible than others, this implies that there is not one single explanation for these disappearances. While some researchers propose far-fetched theories, historical events as well as scientific observation and experimentation show many reasonable explanations to the abnormal phenomenon that occurs within the boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle. Background Information The Bermuda Triangle is best known for its strange phenomenon and unexplained disappearances.
The light cruiser ship called the “USS Birmingham” was readied Norfolk, Va, with a wooden platform attached to it. The platform was approximately 80 feet long. The plane Eugene Ely was flying was called the Curtiss D-III Headless Pusher which was equipped with floats under the wings. Ely barely succeeded from taking off the ship. He rolled off the platform and kind of skipped on water which damaged the propeller, but he was able to pull through. Ely was able to stay airborne for 2 and a half miles to land on the nearest island called Willoughby
The Bermuda Triangle (the Devil’s Triangle), is a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean bordered by a line from Florida, to the islands of Bermuda, to Puerto Rico and then back to Florida. It is well known for all the mysterious things that happen within it. It got its name from a news article written by VIncent H. Gaddis in 1964. He claimed that in that part of the Atlantic ocean, a large amount of ships and planes have went missing without any explanation. He wasn’t the first to claim something about that area, but he gave it the name. The first major story about the Bermuda Triangle was when the USS Cyclops went missing in 1911. It is the most famous ship lost in the Bermuda Triangle. It served has a collier for the U.S Navy during World War 1. It was on its way from Bahia, Salvador to Baltimore, Maryland. The ship never made it to Baltimore. The ship could have sunk anywhere between Baltimore and Bahia. It is not proven to have sunk in the Bermuda Triangle, but that was the area they had said it sunk in.
Have you ever wondered what happened in Roswell, New Mexico? Roswell, New Mexico is now a big tourist attraction for its famous crash in 1947. There is two main theories surrounding the crash, from aliens to weather balloons. UFOs and weather balloons are two theories surrounding the mystery behind the Roswell, New Mexico incident.
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 ‘Bermuda Triangle’, or ‘Devil’s Triangle’, is a mythical geographic area’, states a fact sheet issued by the U.S. Coast Guard” (Gaffron 17). One of the most influential groups in the United States believes that the Bermuda Triangle is only a myth. “Most rational explanations for the incidents in the Bermuda Triangle, including the explanations given by the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard, include human error and environmental effects” (Obringer). The U.S. Navy has lost quite a few ships in the Bermuda Triangle region and believe that the reason behind those disappearances involved either human or technical difficulties. “Plane ditchings or explosions in flight may result from many causes; lack of visible evidence being explained by the truism that ‘It’s a big ocean’” (Berlitz 6) The reports from the people that actually lost lives believe in that something bad but normal happened which is a sound explanation for the
The mystery of The Bermuda Triangle has proven time and time again to be one of the world’s most bewildering phenomenons, and has kept scholars and conspiracists alike scratching their heads. It has defied all aspects of logic, science, likelihood, and probability. According to a late September, 2017 article by Holly Christodoulou, a writer for “The Sun”, “The Bermuda Triangle seems to have laid claim to at least 1000 lives via the mysterious disappearances of massive man-made vessels such as planes, boats, and cargo ships that remain unfound to this very day” (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2021520/bermuda-triangle-ships-planes-conspiracy-theories/).
You might know that the Bermuda Triangle is a legendary place where numerous disappearances have occurred, but how much do you really know about it? Some people don’t believe in such a place, but some do. Research has been conducted to try and figure out what could possibly be happening here, but with no hard evidence. The mysterious Bermuda Triangle may be more than just a myth though; the Bermuda triangle has a long history with disappearances, few people live through it to tell the tale, and possible theories have been made over the years; leaving scientists questioning this strange phenomenon.
“In total, six airplanes and 27 men appear to have vanished” (How). On December 5th of 1945, five U.S. Navy bombers went missing without a trace of why. Later a rescue plane was sent to search for the plane and the survivors, but those planes disappeared as well. That incident is one of the most famous and well known disappearances in the area (How). The Bermuda triangle is an area in the Atlantic Ocean which many people believe mysterious disappearances have taken place. It reaches Puerto Rico, Florida, and Bermuda in a triangle shape that covers approximately 500,000 square miles (History). The mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda triangle are myths as evidenced by people who travel the area safely every day, there is no scientific proof of the mysteries, and there are scientific reasons why people have disappeared.
There have been similar stories of people crossing the Bermuda Triangle and went missing without a trace. However, those who don’t believe in supernatural events may say it’s a coincidence that there are more cases of missing ships, airplanes and people occur in this area. Still, there is the other side of the public that agree on the bizarre and supernatural that occurred in the region. Not only that, “People have even gone so far as to speculate that it’s an area of extra-terrestrial activity or that there is some bizarre natural scientific cause for the region to be hazardous; but most likely, it’s simply an area in which people have experienced a lot of bad luck” (Upton). The Bermuda Triangle is such an interesting mystery of sudden disappearance of ships and planes that people are willing to find what the cause of it.
The low-lying Caymans have always been a challenge to ships navigating the region. All three islands have reefs surrounding the majority of their coasts, and the islands themselves being so low; they are very difficult for approaching ships to see, especially at night. The islands are also located on several popular shipping routes used from colonial times to today. Ships leaving Central America passed the Caymans on their way to the Gulf of Mexico and the strait of Florida, allowing the Gulf Stream to carry them out to the Atlantic. Large numbers of ships and dangerous reef lined islands is a recipe for shipwrecks and the Caymans have seen more than their fair share.
The paranormal activity and substantial amount of ships and planes missing reported suggests that the triangle would be a deadly place for ships to travel across. However, the area is passed through daily by multiple cruise ships along with planes as well. The “World Wide Fund For Nature” created a list of the 10 most deadly waters for shipping, but the bermuda triangle was not included. Research has hinted towards reports of several incidents being exaterated or imbellished. Despite the evidence, the majority of people still believe the triangle is not deadly, and in fact, is completely safe to ship through, or fly over. On the contrary, over the past 5 centuries, more than 1000 ships and planes have dissapeared unaccounted for in the triangle(http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/faq8-1.htm). Therefore, the aura of mystery surrounding the triangle is alive and well.
During these two hours radios on land were trying to get a hold of the squadron but had no luck until they heard an unclear radio transmission at 6:20 p.m. from the leader of the squadron, who was telling his men to jump off the aircraft (Edwards 1 of 15).... ... middle of paper ... ... Without a doubt, there are many incidents which have taken place around the Bermuda Triangle that nobody in the world has answers to.
