The legend of the Bermuda Triangle probably started some time around 1945, when Navy Avenger airplanes disappeared on a training flight out of Fort 

Soon, the masses were wondering: Was something amiss in the triangle-shaped stretch of ocean between. Today, we've all heard of the Bermuda Triangle. .Look, no one likes to admit they make mistakes...but we all do it, and pilots and sailors are no exception.

The Bermuda Triangle's tropical weather and crystal blue water make it prime aviation stomping ground for everyone from veteran pilots to Navy sailors to amateurs looking to play around.

There's a lot of traffic in the area, and when you add in the turbulent weather patterns, swift currents and a landscape composed of a lot of similar-looking islands, it can be really easy to lose one's way. Once you're a little way off, it's only a few more wrong turns until you're really far askew: far, far away from a place to refuel or wait out tough weather.

In short, you're a disaster just waiting to happen … and, judging from the Triangle's history, you're not alone.

So, way, way, way back, 11,000 years ago, a comet may or may not have crashed to Earth and landed deep on the ocean floor, right beneath where the Bermuda Triangle lies today.

Some theorists speculate that this comet might have strange electromagnetic properties that could disrupt compasses and other navigational tools and even interfere with an aircraft engine. So, has anyone found such a comet?

 but the ocean in the area can be tens of thousands of feet deep in some trenches, so proof may never be found. With no proof, faith in an ancient alien comet is really all that's left.

The Bermuda Triangle, , is a loosely defined region lying  in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. It is also known as the Devil's Triangle.  Whether a place called Bermuda triangle actually exists or not is a matter of debate now. It is mentioned usually as a place where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. But  the US Navy  says, the triangle does not exist, and the name is not recognized by the US Board on Geographic Names either. Popular culture and stories has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. But no actual proof has been recorded to substantiate these claims. In a 2013 study, the World Wide Fund for Nature identified the world’s 10 most dangerous waters for shipping, but the Bermuda Triangle was not among them.
