Bermuda Triangle - Behind the Intrigue


The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region of the Atlantic Ocean in which a number of aircraft and surface vessels have disappeared in what are said to be circumstances that fall beyond the boundaries of human error or acts of nature. Some of these disappearances have been attributed to the paranormal, a suspension of the laws of physics, or activity by extraterrestrial beings by popular culture.

Approaching the subject from the back door, so to speak, free of the hype and public forum, has yielded more startling information. For instance, no more than a few disappearances of airplanes have been reported in the last 2 decades, yet mystery has struck with skillful hands. Searches of the database of National Transportation Safety Board reveal some 75 aircraft have gone missing. Projecting Coast Guard statistics on missing boats is truly mind boggling, perhaps reaching over 2,000.

Recent Aircraft disappearances include:
1. Piper PA-46-310P N444JH on April 10, 2007, near Berry Islands.(under investigation).
2. Piper PA-23 N6886Y on June 20, 2005, Between Treasure Cay, BI, to Flort Pierce, FL (possible foul weather).
3. Piper PA-32-300 N8224C, November 12, 2003, over the Exumas, Bahamas. (No known cause).

The boundaries of the Triangle vary with the author; some stating its shape is akin to a trapezium covering the Straits of Florida, the Bahamas, and the entire Caribbean island area east to the Azores; others add to it the Gulf of Mexico. The more familiar, triangular boundary in most written works has as its points Miami, Florida; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and the mid-Atlantic island of Bermuda, with most of the accidents concentrated along the southern boundary around the Bahamas and the Florida Straits.

The area is one of the most heavily-sailed shipping lanes in the world, with ships crossing through it daily for ports in the Americas and Europe, as well as the Caribbean Islands. Cruise ships are also plentiful, and pleasure craft regularly go back and forth between Florida and the islands. It is also a heavily flown route for commercial and private aircraft heading towards Florida, the Carribean, and South America from points north.

The Gulf Stream ocean current flows through the Triangle after leaving the Gulf of Mexico; its current of five to six knots may have played a part in a number of disappearances. Sudden storms can and do appear, and in the summer to late fall the occasional hurricane strikes the area. The combination of heavy maritime traffic and tempestuous weather makes it inevitable that vessels could founder in storms and be lost without a trace — especially before improved telecommunications, radar, and satellite technology arrived late in the 20th century.


History of the Triangle story
According to the Triangle authors, Christopher Columbus was the first person to document something strange in the Triangle, reporting that he and his crew observed "strange dancing lights on the horizon", flames in the sky, and at another point he wrote in his log about bizarre compass bearings in the area. From his log book, dated October 11, 1492 he wrote:

"The land was first seen by a sailor (Rodrigo de Triana), although the Admiral at ten o'clock that evening standing on the quarter-deck saw a light, but so small a body that he could not affirm it to be land; calling to Pero Gutiérrez, groom of the King's wardrobe, he told him he saw a light, and bid him look that way, which he did and saw it; he did the same to Rodrigo Sánchez of Segovia, whom the King and Queen had sent with the squadron as comptroller, but he was unable to see it from his situation. The Admiral again perceived it once or twice, appearing like the light of a wax candle moving up and down, which some thought an indication of land. But the Admiral held it for certain that land was near..."
Modern scholars checking the original log books have surmised that the lights he saw were the cooking fires of Taino natives in their canoes or on the beach; the compass problems were the result of a false reading based on the movement of a star. The flames in the sky were undoubtedly falling meteors, which are easily seen while at sea.

The first article of any kind in which the legend of the Triangle began appeared in newspapers by E.V.W. Jones on September 16, 1950, through the Associated Press. Two years later, Fate magazine published "Sea Mystery At Our Back Door", a short article by George X. Sand in the October 1952 issue covering the loss of several planes and ships, including the loss of Flight 19, a group of five U.S. Navy TBM Avenger bombers on a training mission. Sand's article was the first to lay out the now-familiar triangular area where the losses took place. Flight 19 alone would be covered in the April 1962 issue of American Legion Magazine. The article was titled "The Lost Patrol", by Allen W. Eckert, and in his story it was claimed that the flight leader had been heard saying "We are entering white water, nothing seems right. We don't know where we are, the water is green, no white." It was also claimed that officials at the Navy board of inquiry stated that the planes "flew off to Mars." "The Lost Patrol" was the first to connect the supernatural to Flight 19, but it would take another author, Vincent Gaddis, writing in the February 1964 Argosy Magazine to take Flight 19 together with other mysterious disappearances and place it under the umbrella of a new catchy name: "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle" [4]; he would build on that article with a more detailed book, Invisible Horizons, the next year. Others would follow with their own works: John Wallace Spencer (Limbo of the Lost, 1969); Charles Berlitz (The Bermuda Triangle, 1974); Richard Winer (The Devil's Triangle, 1974), and many others, all keeping to some of the same supernatural elements outlined by Eckert.

The enigma of the Bermuda Triangle has possibly taken some of the otherwise honky-tonk atmosphere out of Bimini and replaced it with the aura of being a gateway to present and past mystery, for off the island there are also unexplained manmade ruins. By their construction and layout, they suggest some of the earliest and most mysterious megalithic architecture known to man.

During the 1940’s Flight 19 squadron was reported missing in the Bermuda Triangle, while on patrol off the Florida coast. The planes encountered an unusual glow in the atmosphere. Unknown to the pilots at the time, they passed off their short exposure to the phenomena as weird, but it raised no alarms. The atomic structure of the airplanes and passengers had been permanently altered due absorption of sub atomic particles released from beneath the ocean floor. The base vibrational frequency of the effected matter and energy was raised sufficiently to cause oscillation back and forth in a zone where the laws of 3rd and 4th density overlap. In our reality the airplanes and pilots seem to wink in and out of our existence. Many of the unexplained occurrences associated with the flight can now be explained with the laws of physics that govern 4th density existence. As airplanes and pilots moved closer to a 4th density reality their instruments failed. All electrical and magnetic gauges were working properly, but existence in 4th density has different anchor points so the dials wandered aimlessly. Distance traveled vs. unit of time is also altered by a factor of 17 to 1. This was how these airplanes were able to cover a greater range than normal. Sporadic radio contact was only achieved when the airplanes shifted near 3rd density or Earth’s plane. The airplanes and crew finally succumbed to an ordinary cause; they ran out gas, crashing into the Atlantic Ocean. The pilots went into a state of shock as they realize they moved through the water in a ghost like fashion. The airplanes and pilots drifted to the bottom and into the seabed because matter and energy on the fringes of 4th density passes through earthly matter without intermixing. Finally settling where a 4th density spatial barrier would overlap a 3rd density location. Debris in the normal fashion would not be found.

The MARINE SULPHUR QUEEN was put into service in 1961 and made a total of sixty three voyages before her disappearance. After several days of searching, only a few lifejackets, life rings and minor debris were found in a position south-east of Key West."

Here, a Coast Guard seaman holds a life jacket from the Marine Sulphur Queen. A ring with a man's shirt tied to it is also in this photo. These items were found near Miami.

Among those are missing...

1991, October 31: Grumman Cougar jet; over Gulf of Mexico; vanished on ascent while on radar

The Cyclops is perhaps the most famous of the early 20th century disappearances. She vanished in March 1918 with 309 men aboard. She is the Navy’s “greatest mystery of the sea.”
