The Bermuda Triangle is one of the great mysteries of the world.
Many ships and planes have mysteriously disappeared in this area for
hundreds of years. To find the Bermuda Triangle, start at Norfolk, Virginia, go
west to the Bermuda Islands, south to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and then east to
Miami, Florida. That area is known
as the Bermuda Triangle.

In spite of its reputation, it is very beautiful.
The Bermuda Triangle points to Reykjavik, Iceland.
The Bermuda Triangle is notorious for unpredictable weather.
everyone disappears in the Triangle. In
1935, a freighter spotted a yacht called La Dhama. The crew took the logbook after finding no life onboard.
Arriving at their destination, the freighter’s crew discovered a
passenger from the yacht. The
formerpassenger had boarded an oceanliner and watched the yacht sink. This took place five days before the logbook was taken!
In 1960, a plane disappeared from radar for 10 minutes. A few moments later, it landed.
control crew told the piolots about their dissapearence the piolots
looked at their watches they were 10 minutes behind. In
1962, on a clear, sunny day, the pilot of a private jet kept radioing for
directions. It subsequently
disappeared without a trace. In
1970, Bruce Gernon took off from the Bahamas. Shortly after takeoff, a cloud, shaped like a tunnel, surrounded his
plane. When it cleared, he was at
his destination. It should have
taken an hour and 15 minutes. Instead,
it took 45 minutes. In 1970 the Scorpion, a submarine, disappeared in the Triangle.
In 1967, two seamen of the Queen
Elizabeth I were on deck when a low flying plane banked toward the ship and
just vanished – no splash – no nothing. In 1963, the S.S. Marine Sulphur
Queen vanished in the Triangle. At
least once a year someone disappears in the Triangle. In 1949, a pilot said he
could see Miami, but never landed. In 1945 The Witchcraft disappeared
less than 15 minutes after signaling for help. In 1944, the Wild Goose

First, a giant ball of fire flew over his ship and crashed into the

Fourth, there was no wind, but there were huge, rolling waves.
You need to have wind to have waves.
In 1607, St. Elmo’s Fire hit the mast of
George Somers’ ship in the Triangle. St. Elmo’s Fire is when there is so much electricity in the
air that it starts a fire. Most
disappearances have been navy ships and planes. Most people think
UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) have something to do with the disappearances.
Old sailors believed that a sea monster attacked every ship that came
into the Triangle.
