Ships and aircraft lost between Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. No one knows why five Navy aircraft vanished there 58 years ago. Flight 19 took off from Florida 58 years ago. They vanished. Hence, a myth. The Bermuda Triangle is between Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico, between Florida and the Caribbean.
In the previous century, several aircraft and ships disappeared in the triangle. It's quirky. Columbus' journal reports odd compass readings. In a 1964 article on Flight 19, Vincent Gaddis called the area the "Bermuda Triangle." The story generated so many myths it might be a company. The missing travelers have sparked many crazy speculations.
Alien giant squids are blamed. Ocean flatulence, in which the ocean spews methane, has been blamed for extraterrestrial abductions and a secret third dimension. Truth is dull, say many. Mother Nature's capriciousness, human shortcomings, poor building or design, and ill luck are blamed.
