It was probably Louie Giuntoli's voice. The 41-year-old pilot of the C-119 Flying Boxcar sounded calm on the radio as he acknowledged switching to a clearer frequency of 6567 kilocycles.He didn't sound like a man in distress.

He didn't sound like a man about to disappear.The crew from Milwaukee's 440th Airlift Wing was flying over the Atlantic Ocean south of Florida on the heavily traveled Yankee Route.

As a farm kid in the 60's I used to see the Flying "Box Cars" flying over the hills of Green County on Training missions. My Uncle Leroy used to parachute from them. Though large and heavy, they flew very low and slow, practicing running below radar. I wonder if on this mission they were flying low over the sea so that the reaction time would be very short in case of engine trouble?

I do believe there is a logical explanation for this, As I saw on the discovery channel.

Methane gas deposits under the bermuda trangle rise through the sea and up into the planes engine, As tested by these scientists less than 1.0% of methane gas into those model planes engine will make it die out.

As for the boats, Humongus methane gas bubbles tipping it over.

Thats news to me, methane deposits huh.  Interesting, I'll have to look into that.

I heard somewhere that the Bermuda triangle has expanded to almost 1/4 of the east coast.

According to an article I read last year, about 600 in the past 150 years.

Of course, that's about how much traffic goes through there on a daily basis today.

The Earth's magnetic field is "weakening" faster over the bermuda triangle than anywhere on the entire planet. And scientists don't know why. Many believe it is where Atlantas is submerged.

The magnetic field over Bermuda is just fine.  I worked there for two years on an ocean going tug.  Not a blip.  Compassess always pointed to the north, and no ship called in an emergency that was in any way strange.

A Huge Diamond underneath it all. Used to power all the energy. I believe something pulled the planes down.

there is a huge gravitational on the bermuda triangle that attracts everything and because of this anything that goes over the bermuda triangle gets submerged in the sea and thats the end of it.

Well then how do you account for the millions of people who travel through that area on an annual basis without any problems whatsoever?

A lot of unexplained accidents did happen years ago and I think a superstition grew up around those accidents and disappearances  .

Today with better equipment and knowledge planes and boats don't go missing .... The methane sounds plausible though .

The Ark of the Covenant was the sacred chest, overlaid with gold, which occupied the inner sanctum of the temple and symbolised God's covenant with his people.. Covenant= The promises that God made to his people as recorded in the bible. The Ark of the Covenant has never been found .

This is my research topic right now :-*. I think there are a lot of factors contributing to the mystery. Probably there are going  to be a long time for us to find a true answer. Below is my video about the Bermuda Triangle mystery. Hope you like it! :tsu:

No, I watched an experiment trying to prove just that and it didn't work. The methane theory just won't fly (forgive the pun).
