The Bermuda Triangle
Charles Berlitz, Unexplained happenings, Unexplained events
A discussion of the ships, small boats, and airplanes that have mysteriously vanished in the area between Florida, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico, offering possible natural and supernatural reasons for these disappearances. Since 1943 hundreds of plane and ships, and thousands of people, have disappeared in the ocean between Bermuda and the Florida coast, the Bermuda Triangle. A squadron of five airplanes have gone missing, a ship was found abandoned with no sign of the crew or passengers. Charles Berlitz set out to investigate and has spoken to numerous people who have escaped the terrifying forces of the Bermuda Triangle. The explanations he finds seem to be impossible but no-one has found more plausible suggestions: Are UFO's responsible? Is it due to space-time warps created by long-vanished civilizations? What is the connection to the lost continent of Atlantis?
