Transcript of The Bermuda Triangle

THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE By Ethan Puerto Rico Bermuda Florida Atlantic Ocean There have been lots of different disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle. But why? Fleets of ships and planes have been lost in the Triangle. LIST OF LOST STUFF 1947: Army C-45 Superfort vanishes 100 miles off Bermuda.
1948: Four-engined Tudor IV lost with 31 lives.
1948: DC-3 lost with 32 passengers and crew.
1949: Second Tudor IV vanishes.
1950: Giant US Air Force Globemaster lost.
1950: American freighter, SS Sandra, 350 ft long, sinks without trace.
1952: British York transport plane lost with 33 aboard.
1954: US Navy Lockheed Constellation vanishes with 42 aboard.
1956: US Navy seaplane, Martin P5M, disappears with crew of ten.
1962: US Air Force KB-50 tanker plane lost.
1963: Marine Sulphur Queen, 425-ft-long American freighter, vanishes with entire crew. No Mayday signals and no wreckage ever found. Two US Air Force giant stratotankers disappear on simple exercise. C-132 Cargomaster also vanishes.
1967: Military YC-122, converted to cargo plane, lost.

And many more, AND counting!!! One of the most famous disappearances is Flight 19, and Air Force training flight gone wrong. Led by Lt. Charles Carroll Taylor, 5 Avenger torpedo bombers got lost and disappeared in the Triangle. If Taylor would've listened to his colleague, they would've probably came back. But Taylor thought he was Mr. Captain G.I. Joe "I'm the leader" dude, so they probably ran out of fuel and plummeted to their DOOM. doom Really? Oh, yeah and there was a Dumbo flying boat and 2 rescue sea planes (Martin Mariners) that was looking for them, and only one came back. Doom must have said hi to them, too. The crew of the SS Gaines Mill saw an explosion after the Mariner took off, and those things were know to be flying bombs, because the smallest spark would set it off. So some stupid head probably lit a cigarette or something and BOOM, doom. Flight 19 can be easily explained, Taylor got lost, ran out of fuel, died. Mariner: BOOM. explained. So that wasn't the best example. Famous, but dumb. So, why did I put it here? Because it's the question of how they got lost. They said on their radios that their compasses were acting like a spinning top on steroids. (Ok, they didn't ACTUALLY say that.) There are lots of different theories for the Triangle. Aliens. Lost city of Atlantis. But let's be REALISTIC. There is the amazing story of a survivor, his name is Bruce Gernon, and his story is what brought up the "electronic fog" theory. Bruce, his dad, and Chuck Lafeyette, a business associate, took off the runway in a brand new Beechcraft Bonanza A36, from Andros town Airport (Andros Island) on December, just after 3 p.m. It was shortly after takeoff that Bruce noticed an elliptical cloud a mile away, directly front of them , hovering only 500 feet above the ocean. It was a typical lenticular cloud, but Bruce had never seen one that low. But the cloud quickly turned into a huge cumulus cloud, and as the plane climbed, so did the cloud. The cloud suddenly caught uo with the plane and engulfed it. After a while of climbing in and out of this cloud, the plane finally broke out of the cloud at 11,500 feet, and the sky was clear. Bruce looked behind him, and was amazed. The cloud streched out in a giant semi-circle, stretching around them farther than they could see. After a while, they saw another cloud similar to the one they had just encountered. Upon entering it, it was very dark, and visibility was about four or five miles. There were no lightning bolts, only extraordinarily bright white flashes that would illuminate the entire surrounding area. The deeper they went, the more intense the flashes became, so they made a 135-degree turn to the left and headed due south out of the cloud. They had been flying for 27 minutes. They tried to fly around it, but saw that it continued in a near-perfect curve to the east. That's when they reailized they were trapped in a huge cloud circle (of doom). But then, they noticed an opening that led outside the cloud that was closing rapidly. They just barley made it out. When they exited the tunnel, Bruce and the others felt a feeling of weightlessness. All their compasses were maulfunctioning. Bruce contacted Miami and told them they were about 45 miles southeast of Bimini, heading east at 10,500 feet. The radar controller replied that he was unable to identify them anywhere in that area. Instead of clear sky, everything was a dull, grayish white haze. Visibility seemed like more than two miles, yet we could not see the ocean, the horizon, or the sky. That's what he calls, "Electronic Fog." They had been in the fog for 3 minutes when the controller radioed that he had identified an airplane directly over Miami Beach, flying due west. Bruce had been in the air for only 34 min., and the usual trip to Miami Beach was over an hour. Then the fog started breaking apart, like in the next picture, and they were at Miami Beach. What happened to Bruce? He still wants to find out, flying his plane every day and researching. That's what I think is behind all the disappearances planes getting lost in the fog. But you decide. What do you think is in there? THE END METHANE GAS This theory is that there are methane hydrates at the bottom at of the Triangle. Really, they are everywhere, in the ocean. They just might be more active in the Triangle. Any boat caught in a methane bubble could sink like a rock, and planes could fall just like that. Comment! We want to know what
YOU think is in the Bermuda Triangle!
