The Mystery

Many ships and airplanes are said to have disappeared in this area. There have been many unexplained accidents in this area. For instance, an entire squadron of US Navy bombers is said to have disappeared while flying over this region. No bodies or debris were ever recovered. Other boats and planes have also supposedly vanished around this area even in good weather. What’s surprising is that none of them sent out any distress messages. Many people have also reported that they have experienced supernatural forces in this region such as instruments on ships going haywire.

There are many myths associated with these mysterious occurrences. The most common of these is the presence of pirates in the area who apparently don't let ships pass by, although this would still not explain the disappearing planes. Another myth is that there are extraterrestrials or UFOs in the area that are responsible for these incidents. Some also speculate the existence of the lost continent of Atlantis in the region.

There are also various scientific explanations to the occurrences at the Bermuda Triangle. Some believe that the area possesses certain magnetic anomalies due to which instruments such as compasses stop functioning and ships go astray. Others believe that there is a large volume of methane gas in this region. This natural gas is apparently responsible for ships and airplanes being sucked into the sea.
