The loosely defined North Atlantic region gets its nickname as the Bermuda Triangle or the Devil’s Triangle, due to the number of planes and ships that have disappeared in the area. One of the most famous accidents occurred when five US Navy Grumman TPM Avenger torpedo bombers went missing after losing contact during training at a Naval Air Force base in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All 14 pilots on board were missing, as were all 13 crew members of the Martin BBM Mariner flying boat, which later departed from Naval Station Banana in search of Flight 19.
A new scientific investigation into the mysterious disappearance of an airplane is the focus of the History Channel documentary, “History’s Greatest Mysteries,” which will premiere next week.
It comes after scientists made a “significant discovery” on a one-year scientific mission in an area off the coast of Florida stretching southeast of Puerto Rico and north to Bermuda.
While watching the show, lead underwater explorer Mike Barnett said, “We see this round piece of wreck with teeth, like gears.
“I think to myself it looks like a tower. Feelings escape the graph. Could this be the Avenger?”
It was the wreckage of The Avengers that led to the question of whether it was from the mysterious Flight 19 that disappeared in 1945.
“That’s the real question,” Barnett said today.
We don’t know yet, because not many people realize that hundreds of planes were lost off the coast of Florida.
“It might not be one of the Avengers from Flight 19, but it still has a story to tell, and knowing what that plane is, we know where Flight 19 isn’t.”
The cloudy waters are a fact that scientists have found marine records that suggest the wreck discovered in the documentary may have been another disaster.

But more than 50 ships and 20 aircraft are said to have mysteriously disappeared in the area.
Reports of unexplained events in the region date back to the mid-19th century.
Some ships were discovered completely deserted for no apparent reason, others did not send distress signals and were never seen or heard again.
Planes were reported and then disappeared, and rescue missions disappeared while flying in the area.
However, in many cases no remains were found.
