Also featured is the Coast Guard ship that reported a 'phantom' landmass on its radar and Russian submarines that reported all manner of bizarre activity.

    It is extremely surprising to me to find out from the information on this website and also from this documentary that I am an 'electronic fog' expert. First, I do not know what means this absolutely pseudo-scientific and probably highly remunerative term - 'electronic fog'. Secondly, I have never been interviewed by the authors of this documentary. And so, the interview of the authors of this documentary with me is a brazen falsification. It is very sad to see another untalented attempt to make a talentless documentary by untalented, incompetent and dishonest filmmakers.

    Douglas Westfall, that was an interesting read, and judging by the other comments, your input is more educational than if i were to watch the programe

    Not exactly riveting. More like a bunch of divers finding something and wanting to sell documentary material to justify/sponsor their expensive hobby. Combine that with the real history, as above, and I'm feeling duped and conned into wasting a chunk of time I could have been using more usefully.

    What a disapointment. Investigation into one wreck. Little or nothing else. So many scenes repeated that the programe time would have been halved without them. Very poorly made programe. Too many mentions of "a radial engine". Too many mentions of "a four engine plane" accompanied by pictures of a two engine plane.

    The Bermuda Triangle reaches from Bermuda (a tiny island) to Puerto Rico (a tiny island) to the city of Miami (not so tiny.) The concept of the Bermuda triangle was created in 1950 with an article by Associated Press reporter Edward Van Winkle Jones. He had a map showing an airplane flying from Bermuda toward Puerto Rico, another plane flying from Puerto Rico to Miami, and finally, Flight 19 flying from Fort Lauderdale out in the direction of Bermuda. It looks a triangle drawn over the Atlantic Ocean. Each year, ships and planes go missing off the eastern coastline of the United States, as planes have for a century, and ships literally for hundreds of years. Yet both the US Coast Guard and Lloyds of London state that no more ships or planes go missing here than off the Pacific coastline. Much of the story however, begins with Flight 19, aka the Lost Patrol when supposedly they disappeared suddenly into the infamous Bermuda Triangle. Flight 19 disappeared in December of 1945 but it wasn’t into the Bermuda triangle and it wasn't sudden — it took five hours for each of the TMB avengers to drop out of the sky. The irony of Flight 19 is that none of the men died within the infamous Bermuda triangle. Three crash sites have been located and one aircraft has been raised from the sea. Taken from, Discovery of Flight 19 Douglas Westfall, historic publisher, Specialbooks.com
