Missing plane raises Bermuda Triangle fears

The plane carrying Vittorio Missoni and five others disappeared without a trace last month.

The twin-engine BN-2 Islander aircraft took off from the Los Roques island chain on January 4th and headed for Caracas, however after having flown only 11 miles the plane and everyone on board simply disappeared without a trace. A huge search and rescue operation failed to turn up an explanation to what happened to the flight and to this day the mystery remains unsolved.

Several crashes and disappearances are said to have occurred in the region over the last ten years, known as the 'Los Roques Curse' the region is perilously close to the infamous Bermuda Triangle. Could there be something supernatural going on or is there a more conventional explanation ?

"When ships and planes mysteriously vanish -- sometimes without a trace -- speculation runs wild."

The Bermuda Triangle lies in one of the 12 Vortices of the World where magnetic errors occurr the most. In other words, where you find "true north", rather than the magnetic north we find on our compass. The "Devil's Sea" near Japan is also an example of the 12 points. Also, it overlaps the Sargasso Sea, as we know, which was famous for harbouring the wrechakge of stranded ships. The ships can be explained, of course, with multiple theories. As for airplanes... Hell, we still need an answer. If we cannot find a LOGICAL answer, then we cannot solve this mystery. As f... [More]

Two things, over what time period are we talking and maybe start listing them.

Here's another one just discovered which should be easier to monitor due it's small size and precise location, . This new Bermuda Triangle is one to watch imo, located at the red dot in the attached diagram.

I think some of the wreckage isn't found because ocean currents carry them off to a different location.

But why did they crash or sink in the first place? That's the mystery.

I think the theory was that the methane was displacing the oxygen the planes' engines needed to ignite the fuel - or something like that...

So...If just about anything that we know of that enters the Bermuda Triangle "disappears without a trace" This article says that a "Huge search and rescue operation" was performed "inside the triangle" and apparently no vehicle or life was lost in the process. That confuses me. A plane (and what-not else) can "disappear" when entering the triangle, but when this kind of response is performed, you'd expect that everyone involved entering the triangle to "disappears" to...Which just shock everyone...But apparently not. WHY?!?

Because it doesn't exist...?
