The Bermuda Trianlge

     The Bermuda Triangle is one of the most famous phenomenons in the world. The Bermuda Triangle is a 500,000 square foot area in the Atlantic Ocean just off the south eastern tip of Florida. The Triangle has been part of folklore for centuries, but it didn't really capture the public's attention until the late 1910's. The first major documented incident involving The Triangle was when the USS Cyclops sunk in the triangle and never sent out an SOS signal and after an extensive search, was never found.
     In December of 1945, 5 US Navy bombers took off from Florida to do practice bombing runs in the Atlantic. However, according to radio transmissions, the planes compasses began acting erratically and all of the planes ran out of fuel and were forced to bail out over the sea. And on the very same day, a rescue plane with 13 men also disappeared.
     There are countless other disappearances and crashes in the Bermuda Triangle as well. Should we just determine that it is a coincidence that all of theses incidents happen in this same area? Or is there something really strange and maybe paranormal about the area? According to the US Coast Guard: "In a review of many aircraft and vessel losses in the area over the years, there has been nothing discovered that would indicate that casualties were the result of anything other than physical causes. No extraordinary factors have ever been identified.”
