Who doesn't love a great mystery? This book presents the eerie accidents and unexplained disappearances that have occurred in the region known as the Bermuda Triangle.Even before it was named, the Bermuda Triangle--roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico--had gained a mythic reputation. The Bermuda Triangle became famous for making boats and ships vanish, and for snatching planes right out of the sky. But are these stories true? And if they are true, is there a more sensible reason that refutes the bad karma of the region? With so many mystifying events to learn about, readers will love disappearing into this story.

Still unsolved, still baffling, still claiming new victims. Here are the untold stories. A pilot reports a strange haze enveloping his plane, then disappears; eleven hours after fuel starvation, as if calling from a void, he is heard 600 miles away. He requests permission to land, then vanishes forever. A freighter steaming over placid seas disappears without a trace. A pleasure yacht ghosts past without a soul on board. A pilot calls for help because a "weird object" is harassing his plane. A jet collides with an "unknown" and is never found. . . . Into the Bermuda Triangle is the first comprehensive examination of these baffling disappearances in more than a generation. Drawing on official reports from the NTSB and other investigative agencies as well as interviews with scientists, theorists, and survivors, leading authority Gian Quasar not only sets the record straight on previously examined cases, he also offers a bulging file of new cases, the collective results of his twelve-year investigation. In meticulous detail this unflinching account:
- Documents confirmed disappearances of airplanes and ships
- Gathers new testimony and reexamines old interviews from eyewitnesses and survivors
- Explores possible explanations ranging from zero-point energy to magnetic vortices
- Challenges our assumptions with the sheer weight of accumulated evidence

No one could fathom how a vessel equipped with satellite communications, a sophisticated navigation system, and cutting-edge weather forecasting could suddenly vanish—until now.Relying on hundreds of exclusive interviews with family members and maritime experts, as well as the words of the crew members themselves—whose conversations were captured by the ship’s data recorder—journalist Rachel Slade unravels the mystery of the sinking of El Faro. As she recounts the final twenty-four hours onboard, Slade vividly depicts the officers’ anguish and fear as they struggled to carry out Captain Michael Davidson’s increasingly bizarre commands, which, they knew, would steer them straight into the eye of the storm. Taking a hard look at America's aging merchant marine fleet, Slade also reveals the truth about modern shipping—a cut-throat industry plagued by razor-thin profits and ever more violent hurricanes fueled by global warming.A richly reported account of a singular tragedy, Into the Raging Sea takes us into the heart of an age-old American industry, casting new light on the hardworking men and women who paid the ultimate price in the name of profit.

*Includes pictures*Includes accounts *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents“They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; these see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.” - Psalm 107:23-27Most scientists believe that mankind was originally spawned in the salty waters of the seas, and that over millennia creatures managed to evolve into today’s primates. If this is so, the oceans have made it abundantly clear that have no desire to take their offspring safely back; from the time of the earliest sailing ships, there have been countless accidents and tragedies where numerous lives were quickly lost. In fact, the planet’s waters have likely taken more lives than all the wars in human history, so even though lifelong sailors live much of their lives on the water, they rightly fear it. For centuries, sailors were a superstitious bunch, and there are plenty of stories and phenomena that have defied easy explanation. The 15th and 16th centuries had their tails of sea monsters, and the 20th century had its tales about the Bermuda Triangle. What many don’t realize about the latter is that the stories of mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle date back to the early days of the American republic. The first ships lost in that area, with its points at the tip of Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, were powered by wind, not engines, and fewer questions were asked when they vanished because shipwrecks and other similar disasters were more common. Thus, it was only later that questions about the Bermuda Triangle were widely raised. By the mid-20th century, there were rumors and tales that soon evolved into theories that ranged from the practical to the outlandish. Then, as satellite technology improved both communication and navigation, the stories died down again, as it became easier to explain the previously unexplainable and to save those who might otherwise have been lost. Today, one rarely hears stories about the Bermuda Triangle, even as some of its greatest mysteries have never been solved, from the disappearance of the USS Cyclops during World War I to the five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that vanished in the area shortly after World War II. As a result, questions and conspiracy theories remain. Was there ever anything truly unusual going on in the Bermuda Triangle, and, if so, will it ever happen again? The Bermuda Triangle: The History and Mysteries of the Devil’s Triangle looks at the history of the area, the mysterious disappearances, and the theories attempting to explain them. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about the Bermuda Triangle like never before, in no time at all.

I didn’t believe in time travel or teleportation until it happened to me.I’m Bruce Gernon, and I flew through the heart of the Bermuda Triangle before I’d even heard the term. Skeptics have dismissed the Triangle as a nonmystery, but they weren’t in my airplane when the fog surrounded my craft and I leaped ahead 100 miles. I documented what happened and memorized every detail of that flight.Now I’m ready to explain that there is no Bermuda Triangle! Instead, there is a continuing mystery that has resulted in thousands of disappearances of crafts and loss of life over decades and centuries: a phenomenon I call electronic fog.In Beyond the Bermuda Triangle, Rob MacGregor and I present multiple cases of pilots and others who have experienced electronic fog in the air, in the water, and on land. We also examine UFO and USO cases and their possible relationship with space/time warps. Among the fascinating topics we explore:
Time travel and teleportation. Lost crafts, including Flight 19. The Dragon’s Triangle. The Underwater Area 51. The man who is building a warp drive. A remote viewer who takes on the Triangle.

The BERMUDA TRIANGLE: The Strange & Unexplained Mysteries of the DeepThe Bermuda Triangle is a loosely defined area of the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where numerous aircraft and ships have reported strange occurrences, with some completely vanishing without trace. While some people dismiss the idea that there is something strange happening in the area, it is after all one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world with aircraft regularly flying over it, others remain convinced that a murky secret lurks in the waters of the Bermuda Triangle. As early as the 15th century people were reporting strange activity in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. In 1492 Christopher Columbus experienced odd lights and strange compass readings. Despite this, and many other incidents and disappearances in the area over the next few centuries, it wasn’t until the latter half of the twentieth century that the idea of the Bermuda Triangle was firmly established.The writer Vincent Gaddis was one of the first people to define the boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle. In a 1964 edition of Argosy, a pulp magazine, he positioned it’s three points as being in Miami on the Florida peninsula, San Juan in Puerto Rico and the island of Bermuda in the mid-Atlantic. This is the true story of the weird and unexplained events happening within the parameters of the so-called Bermuda Triangle. Many have their theories, but what is really going on in this forgotten corner of the Atlantic?

True Stories of Aircraft and Passengers Who Disappeared Into Thin AirFor many, aviation still brings with it an air of mystery, a century-long magic trick. Though most of us will board an aircraft at some point in our lives, we know little about how they work and the procedures surrounding their operation. It is that mystery that makes these losses, such as the vanishing of Malaysia Airlines flight 370, so terrifying. Without a Trace explores the most interesting of these disappearances: mysteries that have baffled investigators for years. Occasionally tragic, frequently amusing, Without a Trace is unerringly accurate and informative. The two Without a Trace volumes span 150 years and explore mysteries from around the world. This is volume one, beginning just before the golden age of aviation with a manned balloon swept over the English Channel, and ending with a top-secret spy plane disappearing at the height of the cold war. Each case is laid out in rich detail and presented chronologically, highlighting the historical context, official accident reports and contemporary news surrounding each mystery. Where did they go?Sylvia Wrigley introduces the crews, innocent bystanders and rescuers in this collection of true stories. Documenting the popular theories from each case, she uses her knowledge and experience as a pilot and an aviation journalist to demystify aviation jargon and narrow down each disappearance to the most likely explanations. This collection takes a hard look at the human failings of great aviators, explorers and celebrities who have pushed the limits of flight and ended up at the heart of a mystery. The stories encompass airships, military jets and commercial airlines - all of which have vanished without a trace.
