Start of the myth

The beginning of the stories about disappearances in the so-called “Devil’s Triangle” began in 1945. That year, five United States Navy planes that were flying over the area disappeared. A sixth plane that flew emergency to rescue the first five, also lost track, according to the National Geographic report. In that event, 27 people disappeared.

The Bermuda Triangle it is made up of 1.1 million and a half square kilometers offshore within an equilateral triangle formed by the tips of the Bermuda Islands, Puerto Rico and Miami, Florida.

The report of the specialized media indicates that there are knowledge of at least one hundred missing planes in the area and thousands of people.

What makes the area dangerous?

The space is one of passage very frequented by ships and planes that travel from the American continent to Europe. The strong winds and Gulf currents in that region make both the navigation with the flights faster. It can be said that it is a kind of “shortcut” or “fast route” to travel to Europe.

Stories without scientific basis

The myth or mystery about the area increased with unscientific reports since 1950 about the disappearance in media such as the Miami Herald. In 1964, Argosy Magazine published a fictional article titled “The Deadly Bermuda Triangle” which also contributed to speculation about the “Bermuda Triangle.”
