King George V is the most noteworthy person out of hundreds said to have seen the Flying Dutchman. Kinda like Jimmy Carter saying he saw UFO's.

Kinda like Jimmy Carter saying he saw UFO's. And don't forget Stephen Decatur seeing the Jersey Devil. But this is a classic, one of the most famous phantom ships. And I love it! It's not the only ghost ship; I know of the Mary Celeste, the Carroll A. Deering, the Flaming Ship of Ocracoke, and the numerous other ships that have disapeared in the Devil's Triangle and the Bermuda Triangle. But does anyone else have any other stories and sightings of phantom ships?

Awesome. I didn't know that the Flying Dutchman was a 'real' phantom ship... thought it was entirely made up. Neat to learn the history of sightings and such also. Thanks a bunch! JS
