An Australian scientist says he has uncovered the mystery behind
the notorious Bermuda Triangle, known for its urban legends and
tales of puzzling ship and plane disappearances in the western
North Atlantic.

Situated between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, this stretch
of sea is prone to quickly changing weather patterns, varying sea
levels and complicated navigational realities that have given it an ominous alternative name — the Devil’s Triangle. (FOX NEWS)

At 2:10 p.m., five U.S. Navy Avenger torpedo-bombers comprising
Flight 19 took off from the Ft. Lauderdale Naval Air Station in
on a routine three-hour training mission. Flight 19 was scheduled to
take them due east for 120 miles, north for 73 miles, and then back
over a final 120-mile leg that would return them to the naval base.
They never returned.

Two hours after the flight began, the leader of the squadron, who
had been flying in the area for more than six months, reported that
his compass and back-up compass had failed and that his position
was unknown. The other planes experienced similar instrument malfunctions. Radio facilities on land were contacted to find the
location of the lost squadron, but none were successful. After two
more hours of confused messages from the fliers, a distorted radio transmission from the squadron leader was heard at 6:20 p.m., apparently calling for his men to prepare to ditch their aircraft simultaneously because of lack of fuel.
