Have Scientist Solved The Bermuda Triangle Mystery? Not Really....

Right, first thing is that the "Bermuda Triangle" is not a triangular shape but more lozenge in 'shape' -how many more decades do we need to point this out.

Secondly, yes, if you find wreckage of ships and aircraft broken up by these air blasts it works as a theory.  But no wreckage. No radio messages -and even a quick "May Day" would be possible would mean: "THUMP!" wind hits and sinks ship in seconds.

I once heard a person who was a steward on a ship in the area report how, in a calm sea, a huge wave and wind appeared out of nowhere before everything went calm again.  So the idea of "Air Bombs" is just one more possible explanation but with Flight 19 and the seaboat sent out on the search.......

Bermuda Triangle: Do these strange clouds solve the mystery?

After claiming the lives of at least 75 planes and hundreds of ships the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle may have finally been cracked.

The 500,000km square stretch in the North Atlantic Ocean has been blamed for the vanishing of ships and aircrafts for centuries.
But scientists claim they have discovered the truth behind the triangle's deadly mystery - hexagonal clouds that create terrifying 170mph winds air bombs.
It is believed these deadly blasts of air can send tear down trees, flip over ships and bring planes crashing into the ocean.
Researchers also noted that massive clouds were appearing over the western tip of Bermuda Island – ranging from 20 to 55 miles across.
Dr Steve Miller, satellite meteorologist at Colorado State University told Science Channel'sWhat on Earth: "You don't typically see straight edges with clouds.
"Most of the time, clouds are random in their distribution."
Using radar satellites to measure what was happening beneath the clouds, they found that sea level winds were reaching almost 170mph.

Meteorologist Randy Cerveny added: "These types of hexagonal shapes over the ocean are in essence air bombs.

"They are formed by what are called microbursts and they're blasts of air that come down out of the bottom of a cloud and then hit the ocean and then create waves that can sometimes be massive in size as they start to interact with each other."

Some of the most mysterious disappearances blamed on the Bermuda Triangle:One of the most famous disappearances was in 1945.
Flight 19 vanished when five torpedo bombers lost contact during a US Navy training flight.
All 14 airmen were lost, as were all 13 crew members of a flying boat that was on of two search planes sent out.

In 1991 the pilot of a Grumman Cougar jet made a routine radio request to increase altitude. While ascending, the aircraft gradually faded from radar and vanished.
The latest tragedy to be attributed is the cargo ship El Faro disaster in 2015 .
The ship was reported missing, with all 33 crew on board, after being caught in a hurricane off the southern coast of the Bahamas in November.
