Sometimes stories spread about some strange phenomena on the planet, which arouse people's curiosity to discover what the phenomenon is, and why so many lights are shed on it, and one of the famous places that attract such interest is the "Bermuda Triangle", or what is also called the "Devil's Triangle" Or the "Triangle of Death" or the "Ghost Cemetery", which is a famous area with the shape of an equilateral triangle whose area is approximately half a million square kilometers.

This triangle is located in the west of the Atlantic Ocean and borders the southeast coast of Florida in America, Puerto Rico, and the British Bermuda Islands. As for his naming with these different names, which are associated with death and fear, it refers to allegations of many mysterious accidents and strange disappearances of people who passed through this place. The most prominent of these incidents is the disappearance of a group of aircraft in 1945 while it was flying over the Triangle, after which stories spread about this site and its alleged severe danger, and there are about fifty ships and twenty aircraft that were claimed to have disappeared during their passage from the Triangle during the twentieth and nineteenth centuries.

The location of the Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is a virtual swath of ocean waters off the coast of North America, in the far north of the Atlantic Ocean. There is no actual agreement on the area, location, or shape of the Bermuda Triangle, for it is just an imaginary region, not defined by geographical or geological topography, but in general terms, the most acceptable boundaries for it are an unclear triangle, the vertices of which are located at three points: The US state of Florida, the Greater Antilles (a tropical archipelago whose main island is Cuba), and the Bermuda Islands (a small archipelago administratively affiliated with the State of Britain).

Thousands of ships and planes pass through the triangle presented to travel between the United States and the Caribbean islands or to move across the Atlantic Ocean, as the triangle is located in a vital navigation area in the North Atlantic Ocean, and there are no recent recorded incidents of trips through it. Despite the conduct of many scientific studies, it has not been found that there are special reasons in the Bermuda Triangle area that make it dangerous or different from the rest of the world, but many non-scientific theories are still trying to explain the historically recorded disappearances in this place.

History of the Bermuda Triangle

Incidents First incidents It is said that the French ship Rosalie disappeared in 1840 AD when it was crossing the area, and when the rescue teams were sent, they found no trace of any of the crew members who were on board, and the ship was intact and empty, except for a cage for a single canary bird inside.

Among the early historical disappearances in the region was the American ship EllenAusti which sailed and disappeared on July 20, 1860, and it was claimed that it reappeared several times empty of passengers, or there was a new crew on board other than its original crew, except The official records of the ship do not prove that any disappearance occurred on it.

Squadron Incident 19

One of the most famous incidents of disappearance occurred in the Bermuda Triangle in 1945, when five American warplanes disappeared, and the pilot of the squadron - shortly before his disappearance - had sent warning messages indicating a breakdown in the compass and the occurrence of malfunctions in the flight equipment, and declared that he had lost his way. The aviation squadron that disappeared in the accident, known as "Squadron No. 19", was on a field training mission for the US Air Force. The five planes flew on the morning of December 5 (that is, months after the end of World War II), carrying 14 pilots on board. That they were trained in how to throw explosive bombs, and it was planned that the five planes would take off from a military airport in the Bahamas and fly across the ocean for the US state of Florida, and then they had to return.

The planes arrived safely in Flor, then loaded up on fuel and took off, and returned to the Bahamas. Nearly ninety minutes had passed since its first take-, when the squadron commander sent a dispatch saying that he was no longer able to determine its location and direction, and within a short period of transmission an unexpected storm occurred that made the weather and navigation conditions very bad, and the squadron commander, Charles Taylor, guided the pilots His companions are heading towards a place in the middle of the ocean, and what happened after that is not known precisely because debris or bodies have not been found, but the hypothetical possibility is that the aircraft fuel has run out and that it fell and crashed in the sea.

What's more, right after the disappearance of the squadron, two PBM Mariner reconnaissance planes were sent to search for stray planes, but during the search process one of the two aircraft disappeared, and fuel residues were later found in the sea and witnesses recorded what appeared to be an accident in The reconnaissance plane was never found, and 13 other men were lost on board, and one of the largest rescue operations in history was devoted to searching for these planes, as 248 aircraft participated in the air and 18 ships in the sea, but nothing was ever found.

Theories

Overturning the past two hundred years approximately, about seventy disappearance incidents were recorded in the Bermuda Triangle, fifty of which were due to aircraft flying in the air, and twenty ships that were sailing across the ocean, and some scientists have tried to develop simple theories to explain these accidents, except The scientific theories do not fall outside the scope of natural factors, such as weather factors, human errors, etc., as for the rest of them, they are closer to the claims beyond naturalism that cannot be proven.

Reports of some pilots who flew across the triangle in 1970 indicated that their compasses and magnetic tracking devices were subjected to some kind of jamming as they passed the Bermuda Triangle. And many other stories about the triangle refer to the same phenomenon, which is the deviation of the compass from its original path, and some stories claim that the compasses were shifting to refer to the true north ( the north pole of the Earth) instead of the magnetic north (which is the north pole of the Earth's magnetosphere, which is deviating at an angle Simple on the North Pole).

If this was true, it might explain why planes and ships deviated from their correct course. However, scientific studies prove that this theory is not correct. The magnetic field in the Bermuda region is very normal, and if ships and planes get lost in it, then the reason is human navigation errors. Other theories tend to suggest that the Bermuda region is subject to many atmospheric fluctuations compared to others, and it is usual to be hit by very violent short storms that form suddenly so that meteorological circuits do not allow warning aircraft and ships from taking off, and there are many water vortices capable of destroying ships It is relatively easy, and earthquakes are relatively common in the ocean floor of the Bermuda Triangle, which may cause disturbances in the seawater.

As for the topography of the region, it is represented by many very deep canyons, which reach several kilometers below sea level, which makes the recovery of shipwrecks and aircraft nearly impossible. Finally, some theories indicate that pirates of the Caribbean and the Atlantic may have been a factor in some ancient disappearances.
