1945, December 5 FLIGHT 19 -

Five Grumman TBM Avenger Torpedo Bombers. - At about 2:10 p.m. on the afternoon of 5 December 1945, Flight 19, consisting of five TBM Avenger Torpedo Bombers departed from the U. S. Naval Air Station, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on an authorized advanced overwater navigational training flight. They were to execute navigation problem No. 1, which is as follows: (1) depart 26 degrees 03 minutes north and 80 degrees 07 minutes west and fly 091 degrees (T) distance 56 miles to Hen and Chickens Shoals to conduct low level bombing, after bombing continue on course 091 degrees (T) for 67 miles, (2) fly course 346 degrees (T) distance 73 miles and (3) fly course 241 degrees (T) distance 120 miles, then returning to U. S. Naval Air Station, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In charge of the flight was a senior qualified flight instructor, piloting one of the planes. The other planes were piloted by qualified pilots with between 350 and 400 hours flight time of which at least 55 was in TBM type aircraft. The weather over the area covered by the track of the navigational problem consisted of scattered rain showers with a ceiling of 2500 feet within the showers and unlimited outside the showers, visibility of 6-8 miles in the showers, 10-12 otherwise. Surface winds were 20 knots with gusts to 31 knots. The sea was moderate to rough. The general weather conditions were considered average for training flights of this nature except within showers.

A radio message intercepted at about 4 p.m. was the first indication that Flight 19 was lost. This message, believed to be between the leader on Flight 19 and another pilot in the same flight, indicated that the instructor was uncertain of his position and the direction of the Florida coast. The aircraft also were experiencing malfunction of their compasses. Attempts to establishcommunications on the training frequency were unsatisfactory due to interference from Cuba broadcasting stations, static, and atmospheric conditions. All radio contact was lost before the exact nature of the trouble or the location of the flight could be determined. Indications are that the flight became lost somewhere east of the Florida peninsula and was unable to determine a course to return to their base. The flight was never heard from again and no trace of the planes were ever found. It is assumed that they made forced landings at sea, in darkness somewhere east of the Florida peninsula, possibly after running out of gas. It is known that the fuel carried by the aircraft would have been completely exhausted by 8 p.m. The sea in that presumed area was rough and unfavorable for a water landing. It is also possible that some unexpected and unforeseen development of weather conditions may have intervened although there is no evidence of freak storms in the area at the time.

All available facilities in the immediate area were used in an effort to locate the missing aircraft and help them return to base. These efforts were not successful. No trace of the aircraft was ever found even though an extensive search operation was conducted until the evening of 10 December 1945, when weather conditions deteriorated to the point where further efforts became unduly hazardous. Sufficient aircraft and surface vessels were utilized to satisfactorily cover those areas in which survivors of Flight 19 could be presumed to be located.

One search aircraft was lost during the operation. A PBM patrol plane which was launched at approximately 7:30 p.m., 5 December 1945, to search for the missing TBM's. This aircraft was never seen nor heard from after take-off. Based upon a report from a merchant ship off Fort Lauderdale which sighted a "burst of flame, apparently an explosion, and passed through on oil slick at a time and place which matched the presumed location of the PBM, it is believed this aircraft exploded at sea and sank at approximately 28.59 N; 80.25 W. No trace of the plane or its crew was ever found.

1945, December 27 VOYAGER II - A 70 foot schooner.

1946, December 5 CITY BELLE - A 120 foot schooner found abandoned. 10 persons missing.

1968, May 21 SCORPION, USN SUBMARINE -Number SSN 589, Skipjack class. This was the sixth Scorpion. It was laid down on August 20th,1958, at Groton, Connecticut at the General Dynamics Corp. Electric Boat Division. The Scorpion launched on the 19th of December, 1959. The ship was sponsored by Mrs. Elizabeth S. Morrison and was commissioned on July 29th, 1960 under Commander Norman B. Bessac.The Scorpion displaced 3,075 tons on the surface and 3,500 tons when submerged. The ships beam was 31' 7" and it's length was 251' 9". The armament consisted of 6 torpedo tubes with a payload of ?? torpedoesAssigned to Submarine Squadron 6, Division 62, Scorpion departed New London, Conn., on 24 August for a two-month deployment in European waters. During that period, she participated in exercises with units of the 6th Fleet and of other NATO [North Atlantic Treaty Organization] navies. After returning to New England in late October, she trained along the eastern seaboard until May 1961, then crossed the Atlantic again for operations which took her into the summer. On 9 August, she returned to New London and, a month later, shifted to Norfolk, Va. With Norfolk her home port for the remainder of her career, Scorpion specialized in the development of nuclear submarine warfare tactics. Varying her role from hunter to hunted, she participated in exercises which ranged along the Atlantic coast and in the Bermuda and Puerto Rican operating areas; then, from June 1963 to May 1964, she interrupted her operations for an overhaul at Charleston, S.C. Resuming duty off the eastern seaboard in late spring, she again interrupted that duty from 4 August to 8 October to make a transatlantic patrol. In the spring of 1965, she conducted a similar patrol in European waters.During the late winter and early spring of 1966, and again in the fall, she was deployed for special operations. Following the completion of those assignments, her commanding officer received the Navy Commendation Medal for outstanding leadership, foresight, and professional skill. Other Scorpion officers and men were cited for meritorious achievement.On 1 February 1967, Scorpion entered the Norfolk Naval Shipyard for another extended overhaul. In late October, she commenced refresher training and weapons system acceptance tests. Following type training out of Norfolk, she got underway on 15 February 1968 for a Mediterranean deployment. She operated with the 6th Fleet, into May, and then headed west for home. On 21 May, she indicated her position to be about 50 miles south of the Azores. Six days later, she was reported overdue at Norfolk. A search was initiated, but, on 5 June, Scorpion and her crew were declared "presumed lost." Her name was struck from the Navy list on 30 June.The search continued, however; and, at the end of October, the Navy's oceanographic research ship, Mizar (T-AGOR-11) located sections of Scorpion's hull in more than 10,000 feet of water about 400 miles southwest of the Azores. Subsequently, the Court of Inquiry was reconvened and other vessels, including the submersible Trieste were dispatched to the scene and collected a myriad of pictures and other data.Although the cause of her loss is still not ascertainable, the most probable event was the inadvertent activation of the battery of a Mark 37 torpedo during a torpedo inspection. The torpedo, in a fully ready condition and without a propeller guard, then began a live "hot run" within the tube. Released from the tube, the torpedo became fully armed and successfully engaged its nearest target, Scorpion. Alternatively, the torpedo may have exploded in the tube owing to an uncontrollable fire in the torpedo room.The explosion--recorded elsewhere as a very loud acoustic event--broke the boat into two major pieces, with the forward hull section, including the torpedo room and most of the operations compartment, creating one impact trench while the aft section, including the reactor compartment and engine room, created a second impact trench. The sail is detached and lies nearby in a large debris field.Owing to the pressurized-water nuclear reactor in the engine room, deep ocean radiological monitoring operations were conducted in August and September 1986. The site had been previously monitored in 1968 and 1979 and none of the samples obtained showed any evidence of release of radioactivity.

What's your point ServantX ?

Lloyds of London was contacted on insurance payoffs for incidents within the accepted boundaries of the so-called Bermuda Triangle. According to Lloyd's records, there has NOT been greater incidence of loss occurring in the " Bermuda Triangle" than anywhere else in the world.

According to Lloyd's Maritime Information Services, " The Bermuda Triangle does not exist. " Insurance premiums are no higher than for any other area of the ocean.

However, it has been mentioned that Lloyds of London statistics are not entirely applicable to that area since they do not insure small vessels.

This thread is only for archive purposes. From 1971-2001, can you count what is the average missing incidents per year according to the list above? And what is the average number of incidents in other areas per year in general?

If "you" believe there is something unusual occurring within that area, then "you" say so, and then provide a link to the long list(s) as support.

From an administrative perspective: As interesting as a list might be, the forum(s) here at TTI are for discussions, not for archiving lists.

Well Servants, that's downright scary. Do you think this is a natural phenomenon or do you think something more sinister is afoot?
There is True North and Magnetic North. If we draw a circle around the globe from North Pole to South Pole and back to North Pole again, and then draw another circle around the globe from Magnetic North to Magnetic South and back to Magnetic North, you will have 2 intersection points between the 2 circles of True North-South longitude line and Magnetic North-South longitude line. Bermuda Triangle and the Devil's Sea near Japan are located at that 2 intersections. View attachment 440

Only problem with this description is that it is missing important information. Namely, that the magnetic north pole is not fixed, and never has been fixed. It is continuously migrating around the arctic. Some years the rate of motion is higher than others. But it has been moving as long as mankind has measured it. So that means the intersection point must also be moving. And so then one must ask what does this say about any conclusions you might come to about the Bermuda Triangle?

Although the magnetic north pole is not fixed, it does not move too much and there is always an angle with slight variations between the True North and Magnetic North. Bermuda Triangle is an area, but not a single dot. No matter how much the magnetic north moved, the variation of the intersection point of the 2 longitude lines are still within the Bermuda Triangle area.

OK, so say I accept this. Please explain how this matters. True North is only a geometric measure of the oblate spheroid that is the earth. It has nothing to do with the internal magnetics of the earth. It is just an artifact of the geometry of the body. So how is that related in any way to the magnetic field of the earth, which yields the concept of magnetic north, and the Bermuda Triangle.

Correlation of some fact (that projection of Mag and True north great circle lines intersect at area of Bermuda Triangle) does not imply causation.

RMT
The location of destination on the map are drawn pointing to the true north with geometric measure.

The difference between true and magnetic north can be as much as 20 degrees. This difference if not accounted for can really mess up a pilot or sailor's navigation getting them very lost somewhere on the sea.

Moreover, magnetic compasses always point towards magnetic north unless there is a local magnetic field that is causing the compass to turn away from magnetic north.

Such local magnetic fields can be caused by iron, nickel, or cobalt deposits in nearby islands. San Clemente Island off the coast of San Diego has large metal ore deposits, as well as magnetite crystal and lodestone deposits could cause magnetic compasses to be inaccurate in its vicinity.

That sounds about right but where are all the people? Like in 1944, the Cuban cargo freighter found abandoned of coast of Florida. All hands missing, ship seaworthy, all personal effects still on board. Everything there but the people.

Maybe the magnetic fields which caused the boat to go wacko caused the people to go nuts too. They drank the salt water and drowned or something. That list though, shows a lot of abandoned ships, the people still missing.

Perhaps giant maelstroms form in the area. Possibly inducing huge rotating air masses as well. That would certainly cause compasses to rotate if you were caught in either one of those. I guess its all just speculation until someone decides the phenomena is worthy of true scientific investigation.

IF the Bermuda Triangle was indeed such a trouble spot, who really believe's that 'any' insurance company would neglect to charge more money from those who travel through that area ?

This is one of those instances where people see only what they want to see and ignore the facts such as :

The Bermuda Triangle area is one of the busiest shipping areas in the world, the proportion is no greater than anywhere else.

The area has frequent storms, the total disappearance of some ships was actually NOT unlikely or mysterious, and the number of such disappearances was exaggerated by sloppy research, many times when a missing boat would be reported in the press, it's return to port was not reported.

In cases of actual disappearances, the circumstances are frequently misreported in the Bermuda Triangle books : the number of ships disappearing in supposedly still, calm weather does not match with the weather reports at the time.

An ore carrier reported as lost without trace three days out was actually lost three days out of a port of the same name in the Pacific. A large percentage of the incidents attributed to the Bermuda Triangle's mysterious influence actually occurred elsewhere.

What is the true secret of the Bermuda Triangle ?

The SALES OF BOOKS devoted to uncovering 'the mysteries' of the Bermuda Triangle and cash filling the bank accounts of the authors.

Imagine that.

You know that's not what I meant. Just making a point that "Man" in all his glory has made a mess of things, and it grieves God, who made man by the scripture you quote. Like the Zager and Evans song, 2525, " You took what this ole' world can give, and you ain't put back nothing". This site is going to get deader and deader because of the argumentative spirit around here.

As far as this site becoming deader and deader because of the argumentative spirit around here, are you saying that no one should post opposing viewpoints if they disagree with something they read posted by another ?

I do agree with you that mankind has made a mess of things, however, would you not do the same if I misquoted Scripture - directly or by inference ( or any referenced materials for that matter ) ? Especially considering that the foundation of my disagreement with the material presented in this thread is inaccurate information...

Other than mentioning to ServantX about not archiving lengthy lists on this site; my disagreement(s) in this thread are all within the context that the information referenced has been distorted, inaccurate, and sometimes simply made-up by the authors of the books about the Bermuda Triangle.

Nothing personal against anyone. Just presenting my perspective(s) about the topic and the information presented by folks that are participating in the discussion/debate in this thread.

That is a mystery, which interested me to put it in this paranormal forum. Why do the sailers abandon the ship? Where did they go?

And this is not once, but in many occasions.

The ships and planes in this list are either still missing, or found empty without anybody on board. Why do people leave the ship with all the food and water untouched? What is the higher percentage of surviving? With food and water on a larger ship, or a raft/lifeboat with little supplies? Beside that, the lifeboats are still onboard in some of the big ships. Just people are missing. This is the mystery.

I wish I had the money to conduct an experiment. In a warehouse I'd have about a 20ft sea vessel. I'd have it rigged up were it would move and feel like you were on the sea. I'd have it look like a moving ocean with holographic movie images. At least 10 men and women of different backgrounds and ages. I'd manipulate the magnetic fields to mess up the compass. Rock the some. I'd want to see after 24 hours, if the people start to lose it mentally. No? Then 36 hours, 72 hours. The boat would be fully stocked with food and water. I would want to see if the magnetic field messes up their mind to a point that they want to drown themselves. Or do harm to themselves or others. If that's the case it could explain why no people found from boats. Planes, on the other hand, we really have no way of knowing. If they crashed into the sea, their would be no bodies because of sharks and drowning.

There could be something to what you're saying in your post regarding the magnetic fields. Something pointed out ( a lot ) in the ghost hunting shows are the effects of being too close to electrical panels and electrical wiring. The "fear cage" is what the ghost hunters call it.

The telluric currents, perhaps interacting with other electro-magnetic disturbances, possibly inciting a mass panic to the crew on a ship. Creating a fear cage where the individuals are driven to act irrationally.

A pilot ( and staff ) did an experiment within the Triangle and did encounter what he claims to be electro-magnetic anomalies - his gauges were un-readable, and he said that he saw nothing but a bright white light out the windows. Even with a carefully planned experiment, the pilot began to panic. Fortunately, he was able to fly out of whatever he encountered and returned safely. Does make one wonder, what would the pilot have done ( or a crew on a ship ) if exposed to such an environment for an extended amount of time?

Don't recall the name of the pilot, tried to find the documentary on YouTube, but, could not. :(

I have always heard about random disappearances within the Bermuda Triangle and it has always left me with such a scared feeling. I am a firm believer in other beings and of the paranormal, so I believe these were not just coincidences or accidents. If I went on a cruise, I would definitely make sure the boat was not going anywhere near it!

I really have a theory that the Bermuda is some sort of earth based wormhole or something though i guess it rarely shows its true nature knowing that there is an irregular current and magnetic field on the area. There must be something in it
