Smaller planes also have continually disappeared. No less than nine of
them vanished offthe coast of florida without trace in December 1949, a
sufficient number to cause one to reflect that there was something dangereous
about the area even if the pattern of disappearances had not been fairly
Planes continued to disappear during the fifties. In March 1950 a U.S.
Globemaster disappeared on the northern end of the Triangle while on its
way to Ireland. On Fabruary 2, 1952, a British York transport, carrying
thirthy-three passengers and crew, vanished on the northern edge of the
Triangle while on its way to Jamaica. Some weak SOS signals were received
but were almost immediately aborted.
On October 30, 1954, a U.S. Navy Contellation disappeared with forty-two
passengers and crew while flying in fair weather from Patuxent River Naval
Air Station, Maryland, to the Azores. More than 200 planes and many surface
vessels joined in searching several hundred square miles of ocean but found
nothing. As in the case of some of other planes a scarcely identifieble
SOS was at one point received shortly after the plane's disappearance.
On June 5, 1965, a C-119 'Flying Boxcar' on a routine mission with a crew
of ten vanished while on a flight from Homestead Air Force Base to Grand
Turk Island, near the Bahamas. The last call received from the C-119 gave
its position as being about 100 miles from its destination, with ETA of
about one hour. This was the last message, and after a search of 5 days
and nights, the Coast Gurad reported 'Results Negative' - with the familiar
comment: 'There are no conjunstures'. As in the case of Flight 19, the
avengers, and other vanishing planes, faint and unintelligible messages
were picked up and soon faded out as if something was blocking the radio
transmission, or else that the plane was receding, as has been suggested,
farther and farther into space and time. It is worthy of note that another
plane flying the same route, but in the opposite direction as the lost
C-119, reported that the weather was clear and visibily good.
A US Air FOrce KB-50 tanker leaving from Langley Air Force Base, Virginia,
on its way to the Azores, on January 8, 1962, disappeared as had the Super
Constellation lost in 1954. Again, as with the Super Constellation, there
was a weak radio message indicating an unspecified difficulty and then
silence - and following the pattern, no wreckage or any indication as to
what had hapened. In each case it must be remembered that the crews had
ample lifesaving equipment in case of ditching, so that whatever happened
to the planes happened unexpectedly and extremely quickly.
2 . On July 3,1947, a US Army C-54, carrying a crew of six and flying on a routine flight from Bermuda to Morrison Army Air Field, Palm Beach, its last position being about 100 miles off Bermuda. An immediate, intensive air-sea search by Army, Navy and Coast Guard units covered over 100,000 square miles of sea, although (except for some seat cushions and an oxygen bottle, not identified as an equipment from the lost plane) no wreckage or oil slick was sighted.
As further disappearances occurred, a somewhat alarming coincidental feature was noted in that the majority of the incidents within the Triangle area seemed to take place within the peak tourist and hotel season, from November through February. Even more startling was the realization that many of the losses have occurred within a few eeks before or after Christmas. A British South AMerican Tubor IV four-motor passenger plane, a converted Lancaster bomber, called the Star Tiger, flying from the Azores to Bermuda, disappeared on January 29, 1948. It carried a crew of six and twenty-five passengers, including Sir rthur Coningham, a British World War II air marshal and fromer commander of the Second Tactical Air Force of the R.A.F The Star Tiger was scheduled to land at Kindley Field, Bermuda and at 10:30 pm shortly before ETA (estimated time of arrival), the pilot radioed the control tower a message including the words "eather and performance excellent" and "Expect to arrive on schedule". The plane's position was reported as 380 miles northeast of Bermuda.
There was no further messages but the Star Tiger never arrived. No SOS
or emergency message was received or any indication that the aircraft was
not functioning perfectly under optimum conditions.
By midnight the Star Tiger was listed overdue and by the thirtieth of January, the following day, a massive rescue and search operation was on the way. Thirty planes and ten ships combed the area for severaldays without success. Some boxes and some empty oil drums were sighted northwest of Bermuda on January 31. However if these belonged to the Star Tiger, it would meant that it was flying hundreds of miles off course when whatever hit it accurred and, it must be remembered, the pilot had announced nothing unusual concerning his course or the plane's operation during his last contact with the tower.
As the search continued, without success, numerous ham radio operators, along the Atlantic coast, and even further inland, picked up a garbled message with the words spelled ot by numbered dots - as if someone was working the sender but did not know the Morse Code. The dots spelled out 'Tiger'. Even more weird was a report from a Coast Gurad station in Newfounland. As the taps stopped someone apparently sent verbal message - simply pronouncing the following letters G-A-H-N-P. These were the call letters of the lost Star Tiger.
It was presumed that these various messages were hoaxes especially considering
the known erratic and lunatic behavior of certain individuals who follow
and enjoy disasters. However, a disquieting similarity to the case of Flight
19 suggests itself itself when one remembers the faint fading message received
at Miami, hours after the disappearance of the flight, which contained
the flight's call letters, almoat as if a final message was being sent
or relayed from a fat greater distance, in space or time, than would be
indicated by the location where the planes had vanished.
