EXCLUSIVE: Wife of El Faro captain believes her husband is just 'waiting out' the storm after
the cargo ship with 33 crew members on board vanished in the Bermuda Triangle during Hurricane Joaquin
The phrase Bermuda Triangle was first used in 1964 to describe an area of ocean off the coast of Florida where it was claimed an unusually high number
of ship disappearances took place.
While the phrase was not coined until then, sailors had been noting for decades that the waters between Florida,
Bermuda and the Bahamas contained hidden dangers.
Perhaps the earliest record of strange goings-on in the area came from Christopher Columbus when
he reported strange compass readings going through the area in 1492.
While many debate the Triangle's significance, arguing that it is no more or
less dangerous than any stretch of open sea , the legend has stuck - and some mysteries still remain unsolved to this day.
The Cyclops was a coal-carrying ship used to ferry fuel to American warships during World War One,
and was on its way from Bahia, in Salvador, to Baltimore when it vanished in 1918.
No wreckage from the 542ft vessel has ever been found, nor has any trace of the 306 crew and passengers
it was carrying at the time.
While in theory it could have disappeared anywhere between Bahia and Baltimore, not necessarily in the Triangle, supporters of the theory argue that the
lack of a distress call from the vessel means it met with a supernatural end.
The 309 killed on board the Cyclops remains the single biggest loss of life in U.S. Naval history not involving
The Douglas DC-3 passenger plane disappeared in 1948 while on a flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Miami despite good conditions.
The weather was fine, though a little windy, and visibility was excellent as the aircraft made its way over the Triangle.
The last radio transmission to come from the craft
was from the pilot, saying he was 50 miles from Miami, but the plane never showed up.
To this day nobody knows what became of the plane, or the 32 people on board.
Perhaps the most famous of all the Bermuda Triangle mysteries, Flight 19 was a squadron of five Avenger torpedo bombers that became lost and then vanished while taking part in a training mission over the Triangle in 1945.
Lead by experienced pilot Lt. Charles Taylor, the rest of the squadron was made up of students under his command.
the day they vanished they were taking part in a practice bombing run, tasked with flying west from the airbase at Fort Lauderdale over the Triangle, 'hitting' targets on Chicken Shoals, then returning back to base.
However, during their outward journey Lt. Taylor became convinced that the squadron was not over the Triangle, as it should have been, but was instead flying over the Florida Keys, which was several hundred miles to the south.
Certain that the planes had taken off in the wrong direction, he turned his students north east, in the hopes of reaching Miami, but they never made it.
Commanders at Fort Lauderdale were in contact with Flight 19 throughout the rest of the day, though radio transmissions often crackled in and out.
the end of the day, with communications failing and a storm approaching, a search party was launched.
None of the search planes were able to locate the five Avengers and, to make matters
worse, one of the rescue craft disappeared itself.
No wreckage from any of the planes has been found, though the missing search plane was reported
You can read extensively about the BERMUDA TRIANGLE in my
book "OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT"
The following is from my book from the FORWARD & also FROM Chapter 2:-
"On March 8th 2014,
a Malaysian aircraft vanishes without trace. Even with the modern technologies which can pinpoint nearly every mobile phone on earth up to a meter away, we are told that the plane has vanished into thin air; but are we being told the truth? Theories
abound as to what really happened in this unfortunate incident, from a possible terrorist attack to a vortex in the time / space continuum or a “Bermuda Triangle” type effect!
later another Malaysian aircraft is supposedly just blown out of the sky. Are we really supposed to believe that two Malaysian 777 aircraft just happened to be destroyed within months of each other? -Bit of a coincidence there, don’t you think? Something
simply just doesn’t add up!
Many say that technology has advanced much further than most of us are being told. So perhaps there is more to this story, as well as other strange phenomenon which
seems to be abounding of late. Is it true that something of this nature was being used in this case and if so, how has this happened?
This book starts off with talking about the “paranormal
strange mysteries” of our planet but amazingly shows countless examples where such things have been already written about in very ancient books including the Bible.
This book will take you from the
Bermuda Triangle to Life after Death Experiences; from Sinkholes to the Bottomless Pit; from personal encounters with UFOs to alien technology and alien abductions; from premonitions of ancient prophecies which are presently coming true to warnings
of dire things yet to come upon the horizon in the very near future. It delves into the political & economic spheres as well as the sinister forces behind them. The truth is often stranger than fiction,” as the old saying goes.
In a word, this book covers nearly everything from heaven to hell and in-between and just where all of this futuristic technology is leading too. Many believe it to ultimately leading to the long awaited
and Biblically predicted “Mark of the Beast” and the prophesied 7 year reign of the Antichrist, while others, mainly in the scientific community, believe we are headed for a Trans-Human UTOPIA.
Having seen with my own eyes and personally witnessed many supernatural things which have occurred over the course of my life, I have to opt for the first scenario winning out here shortly! I believe this book will point the way and hopefully
lead you to the same conclusion."
Benjamin, author of the book “EARTHSHAKER”
CHAPTER 2 from "OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT" (complete version)
A very quick summary of the Bermuda Triangle would be to say in a sentence, that there is a triangular area between the Florida coast at Miami, extending to the Bermudas and Cuba where many ships, planes & people have disappeared!
This information has been verified by shipping authorities, and the Air-forces of many countries. I have personally spoken with those, such as Shipping Authorities, who have confirmed these disappearances, or more accurately stated, gone without a trace.
See also (Gone without A trace by Charles Berlitz)
In this area many planes, ships, boats even submarines have vanished without a trace...even satellites have been influenced by it. Thousands of people have also disappeared into thin air... ships
found floating adrift as derelicts, with steaming hot food prepared for many guests on board... but no trace of the people? What happened to the vessels and peoples who literally were there one minute and gone the next? For whatever reason, it would seem that
the “Bermuda Triangle” is especially interested in people. It would seem that many thousands of people have lost their lives or perhaps been transported in time and space to another dimension by the mysterious Triangle. After doing more research,
it turns out that there are in fact other triangles like the Bermuda Triangle. (There have been many programs about this on the History channel.) On the exact opposite side of the earth, just off Japan there is what is called the Devil’s Triangle, where
the exact same occurrences happen:-
The Bermuda Triangle* is
located in the South-Atlantic ocean. Although many ships and aircrafts sink in the triangle, there are also many that sink outside of the Bermuda Triangle. There is no real triangle if you look at a map of all the wrecks in the Atlantic... Ocean Floor: North-American
Continental Shelf explains the wonderful blue water of the Caribbean. In many places throughout the Caribbean Islands when flying over the shelf it is possible to see large objects submerged several feet under the water. It’s a splendid sight and it
would make it seem that finding a lost plane submerged in these parts quite easy, especially in this day of Black Boxes.
The Black boxes don’t work very well when they are submerged. Also, when the sandy bottom of the ocean floor is disturbed
it can often cause the sand to lift up into a cloud and resettle on top of whatever disturbed it. To make matters worse, if a boat has capsized it may go completely unnoticed by all but the most sophisticated sonar equipment.
But these are only minor
perils when it comes to searching for sunken craft in the Triangle. The real peril is that while many people have snorkelled in the wonderful shallow areas of the Caribbean, few have gone just a few miles away from these shallow areas where the continental
shelf gives way to the ocean floor! Suddenly, within a matter of miles, what was once water only a couple hundred feet deep begins an ocean thousands of feet deep. About 100 miles north of Puerto Rico is the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean: the Puerto Rico
Trench, estimated at 30,100 ft (9200 meters) deep. The Florida Straits, between Miami and the Bahamas are around 5,000 or so feet deep. This is the shallow water where so many planes and boats have disappeared without a trace. (Author: beware that there are
some films, books and articles written against the Bermuda Triangle; but it becomes clear that they have not correctly investigated the Triangle, or even talked with credible witnesses, but have obviously been paid to produce documentaries by sceptics which
are direct lies in order to put the public to sleep and keep them in the realm of ignorance, as the Elite tend to do!)
Japans Bermuda - The Dragon Triangle*
Nearly everyone knows of the Bermuda Triangle, that mysterious area in the Atlantic where ships and planes have been disappearing without a trace. All manner of bizarre occurrences have been reported there, from magnetic anomalies to freak storms and waves,
to the complete cessation of all electrical activity. On almost the exact opposite side of the planet, in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan, there is a similar, though less widely known, mystery of the sea. The Japanese call it the Ma-no Umi: the Sea
of the Devil, but it is also known as the Dragon’s Triangle or Dragon Sea. The area has been designated a “Danger Zone” by the Japanese government, and even the United States Air Force has expressed concern over aircraft disappearances there.
... the Dragon’s Triangle in the Western Pacific forms a generally triangular pattern. It follows a line from western Japan north of Tokyo to a point in the Pacific at approximately latitude 145 degrees east. It then turns west-southwest past the
Ogasawara Shinto (the Bonin Islands) and then down to Guam and Yap, west to Taiwan and then returns north-northeast back to Japan, near the measuring point of Nojima Zaki on the Bay of Tokyo. - Charles Berlitz, describing the location of the Dragon’s
Triangle. With his 1989 book The Dragon’s Triangle, acclaimed linguist and author Charles Berlitz seeks to present a definitive guide to the Dragon Triangle. He begins by describing the area in general terms and noting some of the strange phenomena found
there: mysterious lights, unexplained disappearances, sudden fogs and storms, and so forth. He makes the inevitable comparison to the Bermuda Triangle off the coast of Florida, a theme to which he returns throughout the book. The two areas are on opposite
sides of the Earth in both longitude and latitude, and both are located on the eastern edges of continental shelves, where the ocean floor drops off into deep trenches where strong currents sweep over actively volcanic areas...
the Bermuda Triangle
The big question is what are these mysterious triangles? It has been reported by thousands of pilots, sea-captains, yacht owners and people who survived strange events in these triangles about the mysterious nature
of the triangle. One of the things commonly reported is the “missing time” events*
Passengers of planes arriving at the airport, only to find that they were an hour early, or an hour late, as verified by all of their watches, including the clock on-board, being out of synchronization by an hour. How can one explain that?
how did these destructive triangles come into being?
Thirdly: Were the triangles actually created by some sinister force, or aliens of another race or by whom? There are many theories in answer to these questions. One thing we do know for certain is
that the triangles can be very destructive and dangerous. Personally I think it very likely that the Bermuda Triangle is either a gate-way to other dimensions, or the gate-way to Hell. Maybe it’s both! It could also be some sort of “fishing ground”
for human souls.
In the book by Charles Berlitz (written in 1978), there is a fantastic amount of other information as I mentioned above. One of the most intriguing things in the whole book is the mentioning the possibility that the “Earth is
not solid”, as we have been taught, but is in fact hollow! I personally studied at two different universities. At one of the universities I studied electronics, maths, thermodynamics & physics.
With time & study, I have found that much
of what I was taught was incomplete or even totally erroneous! Why? Because much of science assumes the physical world is the only world, which is a very incomplete science indeed!
The following is about the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian flight
ML 370, a 777 airplane on 08/03/14.
It has not yet been established what the cause for this plane’s disappearance was? I am not saying we yet know what happened to Flight ML 370, but the mitigating circumstances are yet very typical of Bermuda
Triangle phenomena. Only time will tell!
Looking at the information about the plane, it would indeed seem like a very strange disappearance without a trace.
I could quote hundreds of examples; this is probably the latest from 2014, & one
from 2009; both planes with more than 210 people on aboard......and very disturbing!
Gone Without a Trace! Boeing 777-200 ER Malaysia AL (MAS) 9M-MRO, the missing aircraft *
Did this aircraft disappear into some sort of Bermuda Triangle?
On Saturday, March 8, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH 370) took off from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia, at 00:41 MST (March 7, 16:41 UTC) with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board. It was a scheduled six-hour flight to Beijing Capital International Airport, Beijing, China. This international passenger flight operated by a Boeing 777-200 ER was
also designated under a code share agreement as China Southern Airlines Flight 748 (CZ 748).
Flight path of Malaysia Airlines MH 370 *
At 07:24 MST, Malaysia Airlines issued a media statement confirming that the aircraft was last seen on Air Traffic Control (ATC) radar at 02:40 MST (March 7, 18:40 UTC) at 6°55'15"N 103°34'43"E, approximately 100 miles (180 km) North of Kuala Terengganu,
Malaysia. After that the aircraft ceased all communications, and the transponder signal was lost just before it was to be passed off to the Ho Chi Minh Area Control Centre in Vietnam. Authorities in Thailand and China informed their Malaysian counterparts
that the aircraft had not entered their airspace. According to the military radar of Malaysia’s air force, the aircraft may have turned back before disappearing.
Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, pilot of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370
Airlines said the plane’s pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, a 53-year-old who has been with the airline for over 30 years, and the plane’s first officer Fariq Hamid, a 27-year-old who joined the airline in 2007 are Malaysians. On-board the plane,
there were 152 passengers from China, 38 from Malaysia, seven from Indonesia, six from Australia, five from India and three from the U.S., and others from Indonesia, France, New Zealand, Canada, Ukraine, Russia, Taiwan and the Netherlands.
all is the fact that before vanishing from the radar screens the aircraft did not relay any distress signal, or convey any indications of bad weather or technical problems; and it was carrying a sufficient amount of fuel for an additional 7.5 hours of flight.
The Aviation Herald website reported that Subang Air Traffic Control lost radar and radio contact with the aircraft at 01:22 MST and officially advised Malaysia Airlines at 02:40 MST that the aircraft was missing. But, a Malaysia Airlines spokesperson
said that the last conversation between the flight crew and air traffic control in Malaysia had been around 01:30 MST, and stated that the plane had not disappeared from air traffic control systems in Subang until 02:40 MST, which is long enough for the plane
to have been flying across Vietnam.
The discrepancy in time of last communications, from 01:22 to 02:40 between Subang Air Traffic Control & Air Traffic Control in Malaysia is very typical of disappearances in the Bermuda Triangles.
The ATC requested another Malaysia Airlines flight, en route to Japan that took off about half an hour ahead of MH370, to contact the unresponsive aircraft. The captain established contact with the crew of MH370 just after 01:30 MST, but reported that he
could not hear them clearly as they were ‘mumbling). (That is very odd!)
How did this aircraft with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board disappear without any trace?
This reminds me of the Bermuda Triangle, The Devil’s Sea,
and the vile vortices where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is an undefined region in the western part of the North Atlantic
Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
The Dragon’s Triangle, also known as the Formosa Triangle, and the “Pacific Bermuda Triangle”, is a region of the Pacific around
Miyake Island, about 100 km south of Tokyo. The Japanese call it the Ma-no Umi meaning the Devil’s Sea. The Dragon’s Triangle, is one of 12 Vile Vortices, originally plotted by Ivan T. Sanderson. The size and area varies with the reports that originated
from the 1950s. Various reports locate it 68 miles (110 km) from an unspecified part of Japan’s east coast, 300 miles (480 km) from the coast, and one report places it near Iwo Jima which is 650 nautical miles (750 miles; 1,200 km) south of mainland
Charles Berlitz, author of books on paranormal phenomena, states in his entertaining book The Dragon’s Triangle (1989) that in the peacetime years between 1952-54 Japan lost five military vessels with over 700 crew members. The Japanese
government then sent a research vessel with over 100 scientists on board to study the Devil’s Sea, and that vessel too vanished. According to Berlitz, that sea region was officially declared a danger zone on Japanese maps.
The Vile Vortices is
a term referring to twelve geographic areas or twelve vertex points of a planetary grid that are alleged by Ivan Sanderson to have been the sites of mysterious disappearances. He identified them in 1972 in an article published in Saga magazine titled “The
Twelve Devil’s Graveyards Around the World.” *
of Ivan Sanderson’s 12 vortices set at regular intervals around the earth. The North and South Pole account for the 11th and 12th vortices.
Sanderson asserts that twelve “vortices” are situated along particular lines
of latitude. The best known of the so-called “vortices” is the Bermuda Triangle. Others include Algerian Megaliths to the south of Timbuktu, the Indus Valley in Pakistan, especially the city of Mohenjo Daro, Hamakulia Volcano in Hawaii, the “Devil’s
Sea” near Japan and the South Atlantic Anomaly. Five of the vortices are on the same latitude to the north of the equator; five are on the same latitude to the south. The other two are the north and south poles.
So, up to now, the mystery of the
disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 (Flight MH 370) continues.
More up-to date info 5 days after the disappearance:
One of the passengers Paul Weeks,(39) a mechanical engineer ,had a premonition that something would go wrong
on the flight, & handed his wedding ring and watch, to his wife Danica before boarding the plane. He was father-of-two from Perth, Australia, & he left his wedding ring and watch, to give to his children in case something happened to him before boarding
the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, as he flew out to start a dream job in Mongolia.
Last night (12/03/14), the Chinese government showed a satellite photo of a blurred picture, showing a whole bunch of roundish white objects (around 10) all bunched
up together in the South China Sea. They stated that the photo had been taken the Sunday 9th March or 4 days earlier. They said it could have been the missing plane.
Even the BBC newscaster was very surprised that in light of this tragedy
and terrible sorrow and anxiety of the grieving and waiting relatives, that it took China four days to release the satellite photo? However in the days since there has been no evidence that a plane sank in the area of the Chinese satellite photo.
enough time to stage some sort of fabricated answer to the mystery, to stop people panicking & to try to put the people of the world back to sleep as to what really happened to the missing plane! If the plane had sunk in the sea, as China would have us
believe, then those mobile phones would no longer be able to ring!
If the plane landed over the land, there are thousands of radar antennas which should have picked up the plane’s radar signals.
Disappearance of Malaysia Airlines
Flight 370 begins to demand supernatural explanations*Why were many of the passengers’ mobile phones still ringing, when they were subsequently contacted by relatives? Many appeared to still be connected with the internet 4 days after the plane vanished?
The batteries of the mobile phones normally run out after 24 hours!
A joint search-and-rescue effort by American, Australian, Chinese, Filipino, Indonesian, Malaysian, Singaporean, Thai, and Vietnamese authorities, is now under
way mainly over the South China Sea.
How did this aircraft with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board disappear without any trace?
Whenever there is a big mystery that simply cannot be explained with normal science and logic, to appease
the public, and to quash their questions and even investigations, the “elite” who control most of the world’s governments always agree to put out some official explanation to stop people from panicking or worse, find out the real truth!
I think we can expect that to happen with this mystery
Today one of the newspapers in the UK was stating that they believed that two Iranians who had used false passports on the flight were terrorists and had blown-up the plane.
It is plain
crazy to even print that headline, as two days ago it was proved that those two Iranians had absolutely no connections with terrorism. The USA also confirmed that their satellites did not detect any explosions in the air in the area of the disaster.
USA and allies are just looking for an excuse to attack Iran, so it’s time to blame the disaster on the Iranians! God help us!
We live in a very crazy world where, as George W. Bush stated on TV, “the Truth is whatever I say it is!”
The world governments are so arrogant that they do not really care about the grieving relatives of this Malaysian Air disaster.
Some relatives know this and at a recent conference with the Malaysian authorities, the relatives started throwing water
bottles when the authorities were giving the official story of the disaster. The people know when they are being lied to, for convenience.
My hope and prayers are that somehow this plane will yet be found and all of its passengers, safe!
hope is that this plane was not yet another victim of the Bermuda/Devil’s Triangle.
Here is yet another mystery that was never solved of a French airline which disappeared in 2009.
Air France Plane Missing Near Bermuda Triangle
Air France CEO: Aircraft May Have Been a Victim of “Huge Catastrophe” *
(Jun 1, 2009) An Air France plane is missing. The Agency France-Press reported that an Air France Airbus A330-200 wide-body jet carrying 216 passengers and 12 crew members disappeared off of the radar screens Monday somewhere off of Brazil’s Atlantic
coast. Flight AF447 out of Rio de Janeiro was headed for Paris.
According to the Mirror, Air France reported that the plane had radioed in that they were going through turbulence. They also reported that a message, “signalling electrical circuit
malfunction,” was received before it disappeared.
A search for the missing plane is being conducted by the Brazilian air force. Two squadrons are currently involved. A spokesman for the air force told CNN that the search area was approximately
225 miles off the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha.
The French are also involved in the search. The French ambassador to Senegal announced that French aircraft are searching off of the coast of Senegal near Cape Vert (Cape Green).
“Airbus regrets to confirm that an Airbus A330-200 operated by Air France has been lost about 3.5 hours after departure. The aircraft was operating a scheduled service...
According to CNN, the CEO of Air France, Pierre-Henri
Gourgeon, citing the aforementioned electrical problems and turbulence, said that the Airbus most likely was the victim of a “huge catastrophe.”
Some have speculated that lightning may have caused the Airbus to crash, but aeronautics experts
believe the scenario unlikely for a modern aircraft.
Of course, the disappearance in this region has also set off speculation about the Bermuda Triangle as well. Depending upon which aficionado to which one might refer, the Bermuda Triangle encompasses
an immense area, sometimes including part of the Atlantic Ocean above the northern coastline of South America. Over the years, hundreds of ships and airplanes have been reported missing in the area, attributed to all sorts of natural and unnatural phenomena.
There exists a widespread belief that the area causes -- for any number of reasons (from magnetic anomalies to UFOs) -- ships and aircraft to vanish.
Air France Flight AF447, if it is never found, will no doubt be added to the other stories of the unexplained
that have occurred in the Bermuda Triangle region. More up-to-date information of both of these airplanes which disappeared:-
* Comments by experts:-
Numerous experts have attested to the Boeing 777’ excellent reliability
and safety record and puzzlement at how it could vanish from the skies
There are very, very few reasons for a modern plane to suddenly disappear
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished from radar off the south coast of Vietnam in the South China
Sea. 239 people were on board — and at this point, it is presumed that they have all perished in some kind of disaster. A massive search and rescue effort involving 40 ships and 34 aircraft from nine different nations has yet to discover any sign of
the missing aircraft. For me, this is almost incomprehensible: Despite all of the awesome technology that mankind has developed, it’s still possible for a Boeing 777-200 with 239 people on board to vanish. For me, it’s mind blowing that all we
have to go on is the plane’s radar signature — and even then, that last radar reading was so poor that the search area is thousands of square miles of open water. Surely, given the fact that we can track a damn Smartphone anywhere on Earth
down to a few meters, there’s a better way of keeping track of missing aircraft?*
In the words of Malaysia’s civil aviation chief, the fate of MH370 is “a mystery.” The Boeing 777 took off from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia en route to Beijing, was cruising normally at 35,000 feet… and then disappeared.
was no distress call. The weather was fine.
Most shocking aspect of the MH370 disaster is that we won’t know what fate befell those 239 souls until we find MH370’s Flight Data Recorder (FDR), aka the black box.
If something did go
wrong, they didn’t even have time to send a mayday message
There’s a good chance, if MH370 did crash into the ocean, that the FDR will never be recovered. (Experts: “a crash at sea would give a lot of wreckage!”) *
In the case of Air France flight AF447, which disappeared off the coast
of Brazil, it took two months to locate the wreckage, and almost two years to find the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) and FDR.
ConclusionWhether the planes disappear without any trace,
or even if wreckage is found at a later date, great mystery still surrounds these disappearances, which should not be able to happen with our modern technology, which can apparently detect any mobile phone* on earth to up to one meter away, anywhere on earth;
unless perhaps other forces are actually at work here, blocking the radar signals. (No trace of MH370 as of 18th April 2014)

the missing flight MH370.
