On a sunny day 58 years ago, five Navy planes took off from their base in Florida on a routine training mission, known as Flight 19. Neither the planes nor the crew were ever seen again.

Not too long ago five Navy planes took off for training. This is known as Flight 18. This is such a big deal because those five planes, never came back. The Bermuda Triangle is known for sucking ships and planes to it’s deep abyss. Most of the people to cross the Bermuda Triangle never return to their families and disappear on the radar. What happens there is an example of chemical weathering. The story continues to go on about the missing people right now.
When the five Navy planes disappeared it was really when the Bermuda started to stand out. Although the Bermuda Triangle really got to be noticed at that time the name had been given by  Vincent Gaddis in 1964. The Flight 19 was the first, but you can sure bet that it wouldn’t be the last. Many people thought maybe it was just bad luck or bad designmenship in the plane. But here is the strange thing. Those planes had been tested before and they worked fine they had been new and improved but now they are in the abyss.  A ship that was holding aircraft had sank because of sudden severe weather and the ship disappeared. Scientists thought they had found that ship but lead by disappointment it was just a different ship that had been destroyed. A man had been flying his plane and had happened to pass through a lot of fog and and he had disappeared on the radar near the caribbean and he had made it through it took him and hour but he made it. Now he had to go back to America. It was a sunny day when he took off... that changed in the middle of his flight when lightning was striking and it became cloudy and very foggy. He tried to reach the people on the other side of the radio but there was no signal. It cleared up about 3 minutes later and thats also when the radio signal came back and he panicked and asked where he was and he was shocked when he had heard that he was where he need to be. He traveled back to america in 6 minutes. This means it took him six minutes to travel a about an hour flight. He said that when he was going through the fog he saw a circle with swirls in it and then a big flash happen thats when he said that he was blinded by the light and when he got his vision back... he was where he needed to be, with full radio signal, and it was sunny. He was one of the few to survive the Bermuda Triangle.
The Bermuda Triangle is a strange place. It is a scientist tourist attraction. It is a strange place because people can only believe these things by a personal experience and it also has the strangest weathering changes. The Bermuda has a magnet pull and the extreme climate change is part of why people go missing.


  1. See me about this, I have a few questions....

  2. I saw this on a show. It was pretty weird... But cool! But I knew all about everything on this thanks to Professor Zach L. He has a PhD in the Bermuda Triangle and works at the University of Triangle Science and The Computer Aided Enrichment Center.

  3. The Bermuda Triangle sounds like a very strange place. I am very curious about what happened there. It makes me want to go to there and see what would happen.

  4. Yeah i saw it on the television too I also know Zack his PHD is pretty amazing. Remember what he always said in the show, "guess what? Bermuda triangle!!
