Transcript of Bermuda Triangle

BERMUDA TRI NGLE San Juan, Puerto Rico Bermuda Island Miami, Florida The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle has had a number of aircraft and ships disappear under mysterious circumstances. Super Natural Explanations: One explanation blames the mythical lost continent of Atlantis. Others attribute these events to UFOs. Possible
Explanations: Natural Explanations: Compass variations, Gulf streams, Human error, Violent weather, Methane hydrates (gas), Compass Variations: in the Bermuda Triangle there have been problems caused by local magnetic anomalies, which have never been found or discovered.

Anomalies- Strange, mysterious events from a variety of sources Gulf Stream: is a deep ocean current that is from the Gulf of Mexico. Human Error: One of the most reasonable explanations for any aircraft or ship lost in the triangle. Violent Weather: Hurricanes are powerful storms, that form in tropical waters. These storms have in the past caused a number of incidents in the triangle. Methane Hydrates (gas): Experiments have proven that the bubbles can sink a model ship by decreasing the density of water. Any wreckage rising to the surface would be quickly dispersed by the Gulf Stream. Rogue Waves: These waves have caused ships to sink in various oceans around the world. Also, they were considered a mystery and/or myth until 1995.
On December 5, 1945, Flight 19 at 14:10 (2:10 pm) involving the five TBM Avenger Torpedo Bombers, went on a training exercise. They reported their equipment disfunctioning, and then they were never heard from again. They had disappeared without a trace. The route Flight 19 took. Flight 19: PBM Mariner: When Flight 19 had disappeared, the US Navy had sent two PBM Martin Mariner planes to search for it. After Mariner took off, they never heard from it again. It was around 9:00 pm, when a message came in from a ship, SS Gaines Mill that they saw a huge explosion on the ocean at a distance. People suspect that one PBM Martin Mariner exploded in mid-air. Famous Incidents Star Tiger: The Star Tiger was a Tudor aircraft. On January 30, 1948, their long 12 hour journey was coming to an end. It was ready to land at 5:00 am in Bermuda. But, 5:00 am had come and gone, and was never seen or heard from again. There were 25 passengers and 6 crew members on board. The search for the Star Tiger lasted for 5 days, but it was never found. A Tudor Mark IV (4), a similar plane to the Star Tiger. USS Cyclops: On March 4, the USS Cyclops set sail towards Baltimore, but it detoured towards the Barbados. Strangely, it disappeared directly in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle. The USS Cyclops. USS Scorpion: The USS Scorpion was a nuclear powered submarine for the USN (United States Navy.) It was declared lost on June 5, 1968 with 99 crewmen dying in the incident. It left Norfolk, Virginia on February 15, 1968. After deployment the USS Scorpion headed back to Norfolk, but never made it back. The bow section of the USS Scorpion is found. The USS Scorpion on August 22, 1960. Mary Celeste (or Marie Celestia) : Mary Celeste was 225-feet long, and weighed 207 tons. It sunk when it slammed into a reef. The wreck lies in 55 feet of water. 147 years after it sunk, marine archeologists discovered five bottles of wine from the wreck. This discovery indicates towards the fact that ship supplied guns to the British, which was also involved in illegal wine trade. Mary Celeste (the ghost ship): On December 4, 1872, Mary Celeste also known as the ghost ship, was found without a single soul on board while still sailing. It was located off the coast of Portugal.

Some speculations and theories behind the mystery of the Mary Celeste are:

Piracy- When pirates would have killed all on board and threw the bodies over sea.

Seaquake- A rumbling or aftershock in the sea.

Explosion: Friction from the steel bands and red oak wine would create a spark, which would have caused an explosion. Mary Celeste- The Ghost Ship. The bow of Marie Celestia. The five Torpedo Bombers. References: http://www.bermudatriangle.org/html/bermuda_triangle__myth_fact.html

Created by: Layla Lynch, and Rifah Tasnim Ellen Austin: Ellen Austin was an American schooner, weighing over 1,800 tons and had a length of 210 feet. In 1881, during a trip to New York, the Ellen Austin met with another ship, which was moving at a good speed. Strangely, the other ship had no one on board. In order to retrieve this unnamed ship, the Ellen Austin captain sent some of his crew on board. When the crew boarded the ship, they confirmed that there was not a single soul on board. The two ships were going to sail to New York together, but after two days got separated by a huge storm. When the storm was over, the unnamed ship was gone. Then the unnamed ship was found again by Ellen Austin, but like last time there was no one on board. The captain again sent crew members to recover it. But again the ship disappeared and was never traced again. The Ellen Austin- Built in 1854. Witchcraft: The Witchcraft was a 23-foot cabin cruiser owned by Burrack. On December 22, 1967, he invited a close friend to show him the incredible Christmas lights along the shoreline. Everything was going well until, 9:00 pm when coast guards received a call from him. Burrack said that his boat had hit something , but it wasn't an emergency. He said his boat needed to be towed.

In about 19 minutes, the coast guards reached the point from where they thought they received the message, but there was no sign of the Witchcraft, nor any passengers. That night the coast guards continued to search. Finally, on December 28 after completing a search covering 24,500 square miles, the coast guards gave up. The Witchcraft.
