Are there any flights which fly above the Bermuda Triangle?
The Bermuda Triangle is a mysterious place on earth where hundreds of ships and flights have reportedly gone missing.
Do flights and ships still currently travel through the Bermuda Triangle region?
While 'do flights travel here' is still a valid and interesting question, it's worth noting that it's not really mysterious - numbers have been exaggerated, ships lost outside the triangle have been attributed to the triangle, and so on (https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Bermuda_Triangle#/Criticism_of_the_concept)
How would flights get to the airports located inside the Bermuda Triangle if they didn't travel through it?
Map the antipodes of the Bermuda Triangle into the Southern Hemisphere and see what you get!!! People fly there. Most come back. BUT some of the weirdest and most mysterious things on earth inhabit that area. Fair Dinkum, Cobber!!!
The biggest mystery is why the aliens don't steal the Bermuda water :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epGgNU5yumQ
@MarkMayo: "numbers have been exaggerated" - "The Bermuda Triangle has a following of people who try to cover up and play down its true mysterious properties ..." (sorry, just kidding, could not resist ;) )
@MarkMayo: On a more serious note: "While 'do flights travel here' is still a valid and interesting question" - well, given that there isn't even a general consensus about what constitutes the Bermuda Triangle, I am not so sure the question is valid in the first place.
@O.R.Mapper - the fact that there's no consensus about what constitutes the Bermuda Triangle **PROVES THAT THERE'S A CONSPIRACY AT WORK**!!!! ***SHOCKING!!!!*** :-)
Although there is a certain urge in me to post a funny or sarcastic answer or comment, I think it's best to point out that planes gone missing a big news in the age of 911. The first suspects would always be terrorist followed be sweeping ocean floors and locating the black box. I would like to invite you to tell us about *any* incident like this in the past twenty years that occurred in the Bermuda Triangle.
The premise of your question is incorrect. The Bermuda Triangle is not mysterious. From the Wikipedia article:
Most reputable sources dismiss the idea that there is any mystery. The vicinity of the Bermuda Triangle is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean islands. Cruise ships and pleasure craft regularly sail through the region, and commercial and private aircraft routinely fly over it.
From personal experience, I can say that I have flown through the area several times without incident.
The article also notes that given the proximity of the area to the Atlantic hurricane zone, the number of craft lost in the area is "neither disproportionate, unlikely, nor mysterious." It also notes that insurers do not charge higher premiums for vessels traveling in the area.
Seconding this answer. I have flown across it too. If you want to travel the "triangle" yourself, there are dozens of flights every day. Take any flight from the US East Coast to Puerto Rico (e.g. JFK->SJU) or go to Jamaica from anywhere in Europe.
"The vicinity of the Bermuda Triangle is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world" and therefore the most of the incidents in raw numbers happen there. Is all about statistic. The interesting number would be incidents/travel through.
' It also notes that insurers do not charge higher premiums for vessels traveling in the area' Always a good benchmark of risk. If insurers think something is going to cost them money you can guarantee they'll be compensating for it!
