I remember watching the story of the mysterious disappearance of Flight 19 over the Bermuda Triangle on the T.V. series “In Search of” hosted by Leonard Nimoy when I was a kid. The disappearance of the five Navy Avenger Torpedo Bombers and 14 crew members while on a routine training mission is still one of the greatest mysteries surrounding the Bermuda Triangle. Theories about what might have happened to Flight 19 have ranged from UFO abduction to strange earth forces that capture planes and ships in its field causing them to vanish. The Bermuda Triangle has indeed been a magnet that has attracted all kinds of people who have asked the same question over the years…what really happened to Flight 19?
Below are few clips from the History Channel that recap the disappearance of the flight and propose a theory of what might have actually happened.
I thought these clips provided a great analysis of the disappearance and I agree with the final conclusion. It was nothing more than poor judgement and pilot error. They got lost and couldn’t find their way back home. Very tragic.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
