Investigators in the Bermuda Triangle have made a big discovery as they attempt to solve the disappearance of five planes aboard Flight 19 that disappeared.
The Bermuda Triangle is a region in the North Atlantic Ocean where ships, planes, and people are alleged to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
One of the mysteries associated with the Bermuda Triangle is Flight 19, which disappeared off the coast of Florida a few months after the end of World War II.
Flight 19 consisted of five American TBM Avenger Torpedo bombers. On December 5, 1945, the squadron set out from Fort Lauderdale and bombed an area called Haines and Chicken Shoals.) As the planes headed north to return to the base, flight commander Lieutenant Charles Taylor encountered navigational problems and the planes veered off course.
The plane is believed to have entered the Bermuda Triangle – the ocean region stretching from Florida to Bermuda and Puerto Rico. All 14 men on board, and 13 other men sent to search for them on two rescue flights, were never seen again.
Efforts to find Flight 19 were intensified last year, as a new team of experts was assembled to track down the missing planes.
Their search for planes was filmed in the first episode of the new season of the documentary, entitled “History’s Greatest Mysteries”
The show depicts Laurence Fishburne, chasing new leads in an attempt to unravel the mysteries of Flight 19.
Marine biologist and master underwater explorer Mike Barnett enlisted the help of a Florida fisherman as he explored a possible plane wreck for the show.
However, when divers discovered the site, they realized that it was not a plane but a giant shipwreck.
Fishburne presented the convertible as an “exciting” find and a “major discovery” for the team.
“We found a wreck about 200 feet long, about 24 and a half feet,” Barnette said. “We noticed it had a very strange charge, it was a white, clay-like substance. We took a sample of that because we figured out if we could identify the charge, it’s likely that We can locate the wreck.”
“This is a sample of the shipment, it just looks like a sample of white clay,” Barnett said. “But there’s just tons of it down there. I’m curious what that thing is .”
Barnett evaluates the evidence and then matches the frightening discovery to a famous cargo ship that went missing in the Bermuda Triangle 71 years ago.
The “Sandra” disappeared after it left Savannah, Georgia, for Venezuela in April 1950, and was never seen again.
The 185-foot-high Costa Rican ship and its 12 crew are believed to have been swallowed by the Bermuda Triangle.
There were about 300 tons of DDT aboard the cargo ship before it disappeared.
“When we actually analyzed the shipment, we found out it was kaolin clay, which is used as an insecticide or pesticide, as well as traces of DDT,” Barnette said. “We know that when Sandra left Savannah, she headed south along the north coast of Florida, It would have passed right where we were, where this mysterious wreck is .”
“All the dimensions, all the machines are a perfect match for Sandra. I put all this evidence together, and cumulatively it was amazing that the mysterious wreck was actually Sandra .”
“The coincidence is correct, we are trying to find information about another puzzle of the Bermuda Triangle and yet we stumble upon another one. It just shows you that this is what happens when you go out exploring here, you never know what you are going to face .”
The team will continue its search trip on the US military aircraft of Flight 19.
