7 Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle

USS Cyclops

When World War I heated up, America also joined the battle. USS Cyclops, commanded by Lieutenant GW Worley, who lives on the East Coast of the United States until 1918, when he was sent to Brazil to refuel Allied ships. With 309 people on board, the ship left Rio de Janeiro in February and reached Barbados in March. After that, the Cyclops was never heard from again. Navy official said in a statement, "The loss of this ship has become one of the most perplexing mysteries in the history of the Navy, all attempts to find him have proved unsuccessful. There was no enemy submarines in the western Atlantic at that time, and in December 1918 every effort was made

Star Tiger 

Star Tiger, led by Captain BW McMillan, flying from England to Bermuda in January 1948. On 30 January, McMillan said he expected to arrive in Bermuda at 5:00 pm, but neither he nor any of the 31 people on board the Star Tiger had ever heard from again. When the Civil Air Ministry launched a search and investigation, they learned that the SS Troubadour have reported seeing a low flying plane halfway between Bermuda and the entrance to Delaware Bay. If it is the aircraft Star Tiger, it would drastically. According to Civil Aviation Department, the fate of Star Tiger is still an unsolved mystery.

Flight 201


Cessna plane was to leave Fort Lauderdale on March 31, 1984, with the route to the island of Bimini in the Bahamas, but never succeeded. Mid to its destination, the aircraft is slowed by the speed significantly, but no radio signal which is made from aircraft to indicate the pressure. Suddenly, the plane fell from the air into the water, completely disappeared from radar. A woman on the island of Bimini swore he saw a plane plunge into the sea about a mile offshore, but no wreckage has ever been found.

Flight 19 


On the afternoon of December 5, 1945, five Avenger torpedo bombers left the Naval Air Station in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with Lt. Charles Taylor, a commander and 13 student pilots. About a half hour in flight, over the radio he said that the compass was not working, but he figured he was somewhere in Florida. Lieutenant who receives a radio signal is ordered to Taylor to fly north toward Miami, as long as he's sure he's really on top of Florida. Although he was an experienced pilot, he got a horrible reality and the more she tried to get out of Florida, he and his crew go deeper into the sea.

At nightfall the radio signal deteriorates, until finally none of Flight 19. U.S. navy to investigate and reported that Taylor's confusion that can result in disaster, but his mother convinced them to change the official report that the plane went down with an unknown cause.

Teignmouth electron

Who says that the Bermuda Triangle just swallow ships and planes? Who says it can not make people become crazy, too? Maybe that's what happened in Teignmouth Electron in 1969. The Sunday Times Golden Globe Race in 1968 left England on October 31, and required each contestant to sail solo with his ship. Donald Crowhurst was one newcomer, but he never managed to reach the finish line. The electron was found abandoned in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle in July 1969. Who reached the finish logbooks revealed that Crowhurst was deceptive about his position in the race organizer. The news last June 29 - he believed that Crowhurst jumped into the sea and drown himself in the Bermuda Triangle.

The Spray

Joshua Slocum, the first person to sail solo around the world, are not supposed to disappear at sea, but apparently that's exactly what happened. In 1909, Spray left the East Coast of the United States to go to Venezuela through the Caribbean Sea. Slocum was never heard or seen again and was declared dead in 1924. His boat is sturdy and Slocum is a professional, so no one knows what happened. Maybe he was smashed by a bigger ship or maybe he was taken by pirates. No one knows for sure that Slocum disappeared in the Bermuda waters.

Star Ariel

An aircraft like the Tudor IV Star Tiger to leave Bermuda on January 17, 1949, with 7 crew and 13 passengers en route to Jamaica. That morning, Capt. JC McPhee reported that the flight went smoothly. Shortly thereafter, other more subtle messages coming from the captain, when he reported that he changed the frequency, and then there's nothing to hear. More than 60 aircraft and 13,000 people were deployed to search for the Star Ariel, but not even the slightest trash or debris that has ever been found. After Ariel disappeared, Tudor IV is no longer manufactured.
