The first person to document strange things in the Triangle was Christopher Columbus.
The compass points to true north instead of magnetic north which could throw pilots and captains off track.
The Bermuda Triangle is also known as the Devil's sea and the Hoodoo sea.
There have been approximately 1,000 lives taken in the last 100 year, apparently by the Bermuda Triangle.
On December 5, 1945, 5 bombers had to go back to base after their practice mission. After an hour and a half, the pilot indicates that the compass wasn't working then the connection was so poor that the other side couldn't hear him. Taylor the pilot, believed he was in the Florida Keys so he thought he should have kept on going north.So, the further north he went, the farther out in the sea he was traveling.The AMB (avengers torpedo bombers) weighed 14,000 pounds so if it sunk, it went down fast.
Some people believe that UFO's, the lost city of Atlantis, or wormholes cause ships and airplanes to go down.
When ships or planes go down there are often no debris or signs that anything has gone missing.
The area of the sea is said to be around 440,000 miles of sea
The area is one of the most heavily taveled shipping lanes in the world.
Some people think that there are electrical storms that cause all of the equipment on the boats and ships to not work and that is why people can't call for help.
Why is the Bermuda Triangle important to Central America?
The Bermuda Triangle is important to Central America because one end of the imaginary triangle lands on Puerto Rico which is in the Caribbean.
What Happened to Flight 19?
The Bermuda Triangle is a mystery that started since Christopher Columbus first sailed the ocean (1492) and we are still trying to find an answer today

It is also important because it will help us discover new devices that won't rely on magnetic devices
It also might draw tourism to the Caribbean for people that are interested with it.
