Default Five U.S. Navy Planes Vanished Over The Bermuda Triangle — And Were Never Heard From

Quote:
On Dec. 5, 1945, five U.S. Navy bombers collectively known as Flight 19 took off from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. for what should have been a routine training exercise. The planes involved in the exercise were each helmed by two or three experienced military personnel.

Quote:
They took off a little after 2 p.m. and headed east over the “Hens and Chickens Shoals,” where they were meant to drop their simulated payloads. Then they’d turn north over Grand Bahamas Island, and finally fly northwest to return to base in Florida, completing a triangle-shaped route.

The first leg of the exercise over Hens and Chickens Shoals went according to plan, but shortly after, something odd began happening.

Flight 19 exercise was led by Lt. Charles C. Taylor, a veteran of the Pacific theater of World War II who had flown far more harrowing missions than a practice flight over the Bahamas. A little after 2:30 p.m., Taylor radioed base to report, “Both my compasses are out and I’m trying to find Ft. Lauderdale, Florida… I’m sure I’m in the Keys, but I don’t know how far down.”

Taylor was far from the first person to have strange equipment malfunctions in that particular section of ocean. About 450 years earlier, Christopher Columbus had been sailing through the same area and recorded that his crew was experiencing “erratic” compass readings.
Flight 19 Disappears
Quote:
Back at Fort Lauderdale, U.S. Navy personnel were confusedly trying to locate Taylor and his crew. It didn’t make sense that they had somehow flown hundreds of miles off course in under an hour to find themselves over the keys. In the days before GPS, pilots had only their compasses and the sun to guide them. With his equipment malfunctioning, Taylor led Flight 19 in several different directions over the next four hours hoping to find Florida. As fuel ran dangerously low, Taylor radioed to his crew.

“We’ll have to ditch unless… landfall when the first plane drops below ten gallons, we all go down together.”

Then suddenly, the radio operators were picking up nothing but static.

Quote:
The Navy sent out two flying boats immediately to try and track Flight 19, one of which also quickly went off the radar and was never seen again. Over the next five days more than 300 Navy boats and aircraft tried to track down the lost planes, but Taylor and his men were never seen nor heard from again.
Quote:
As for Flight 19, it has been speculated that the planes simply got lost and ran out of fuel. Although experienced, Taylor had just transferred to Fort Lauderdale and was therefore unfamiliar with the geography. It’s been theorized he mistook the Bahamas for the Florida Keys

Quote:
However, this theory, as well as the idea that more traffic naturally results in more mishaps, does not account for the bizarre element shared between Flight 19 and the other disappearances in what is now known as the Bermuda Triangle. Whether downed by collision or clash, planes will leave behind some debris, but no trace of any of the vanished flights was ever found.
These are mysterious occurrences I have often pondered over.
What do you think really happened to the crew and equipment of flight 19?

Maybe they flew north of the Bahamas, due to the wayward compasses, since it is said that the leader mistook the Bahamas for the Florida Keys. When he discovered his mistake farther north, he turned around, but they all ran out of fuel before they could re-orient their planes.

Someone told me that in 2017 the pentagon confirmed the existence of ufos and that in the future they are going to investigate regularly the sightings by commercial and military pilots.
guess we missed that news while airwaves were filled with trumpets.

I see UFO's all the time. However, my guess is that they are just commercially own aircraft flying over my house.

Some dude from flight 19 in 1945 is talking to some dude from flight MH370 in 2014 and they are both wondering what the Bermuda triangle and the Indian ocean have in common.
Or maybe they know and are laughing about it.

It's pretty random, we probably wouldn't get as lucky as you and I desire.
