THE MYSTERY OF THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE MAY FINALLY BE SOLVED

One of life’s great mysteries, the Bermuda Triangle 1) __________ have finally found an explanation. This strange region, which 2) __________ in the North Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Miami and Puerto Rico, has been the presumed cause of 3) __________ of mind-boggling disappearances of ships and planes.

The Bermuda Triangle lore includes such stories as that of Flight 19, a group of 5 U.S. torpedo bombers that 4) __________ in the Triangle in 1945. A rescue plane sent to look for them also disappeared. 5) __________ stories include the mystery of USS Cyclops, resulting in the largest non-combat 6) __________ of life in U.S. Navy’s history. The ship with a crew of 309 went missing in 1918. Even as recently as 2015, El Faro, a cargo ship with 33 on board disappeared in the area.

Altogether, as 7) __________ as we know, 75 planes and hundreds of ships met their demise in the Bermuda Triangle. Possible causes for the catastrophes have been proposed over time, 8) __________ from the paranormal, electromagnetic interference that causes compass problems, bad weather, to the Gulf Stream  and large undersea fields of methane.

Anything caught inside one of these “bombs” could be very well knocked out of the air, flipped over, sunk.
