Paranormal - The Mystery Of The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the "Devil's Triangle", is a portion of the Atlantic Ocean between Florida, the Barbados Islands and Bermuda. This area is indelibly linked to mysterious disappearances: the popular tradition has it that an infinite number of ships and planes have inexplicably disappeared in that area.

The Bermuda Triangle, which encompasses many think a supernatural secret was brought to the fore by the media, who have turned it into a true legend. Is it true that the sea in this area hides a mysterious force, able to suck sailors and pilots to some parallel dimension, or is it just imagination?

The most famous disappearance occurred in the Bermuda Triangle is known as "the mystery of Flight 19", and took place on December 5, 1945. A squadron of five US Navy Avenger bombers set off from the base of Fort Lauderdale in Florida to make a mission training on the island of Bimini. The flight consisted of 14 men, all students except the commander Lt. Charles Taylor.

After about an hour and a half from the beginning of the mission, the base radio operators received a message from Taylor who complained of malfunctioning compasses. Later a strong storm was completely halted communications with the squadron. After the loss of contact, were sent several reconnaissance aircraft, in order to find the Flight 19. One of three aircraft used for research also lost the radio signal because of bad weather, the second was not able to find anything and the third exploded seconds after takeoff.

Flight 19 was never found. It is assumed that, due to the malfunctioning of the bushes and of a lack of visual reference, the planes have moved away too far in the open sea, and then precipitate in water at irretrievably out of fuel. The legend of Flight 19 was consecrated also by its inclusion in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" by Steven Spielberg.

Flight 19 is not however the only major loss recorded in the Bermuda Triangle. The USS Cyclops and Marine Sulphur Queen, two warships, are also missing in that area in mysterious circumstances.

Some theories want the Bermuda Triangle as a submarine base alien. Others will pull in dance Atlantis and monstrous creatures. The most imaginative, seen in the Bermuda Triangle to access a portal to a parallel dimension.
In any case, it is certain that the Bermuda Triangle possesses a natural unquestionable quality, which may have contributed over the years to the disappearances of aircraft and ships. Unlike anywhere else in the world, in that area compasses fact indicate the true north rather than magnetic north.
This could be one of the elements behind the legend of the Triangle, although the US Coast Guard officially estimates that the losses are the result of human error combined with adverse weather conditions.

This area of ??the sea and it transited every year by a huge ocean and air traffic, and many of those who cross it are amateur pilots and sailors with little or no experience. Strong winds in the Gulf and unpredictable weather conditions create big problems to ships, and plunge quickly once wrecks sunk.

It's also interesting to note that for the Coast Guard that area is not at all considered at high risk of accidents. A researcher examine different historical losses in the Triangle, and concluded that interpretations, legends and mystification of reality had overshadowed the real underlying causes of various incidents. Even insurers Lloyd's of London, have documentation showing that the Triangle region and not more dangerous than many others in the world.

In any case, the myth of the Bermuda Triangle is so strong that it will remain in our imagination forever, at least until it will be used by the writers of fiction as a great place to acclimatize mysterious stories.
