The "mysterious disappearances" in this part of the world were first mentioned by Associated Press correspondent Edward Van Winkle Jones, who in 1951 called the area "the Devil’s Sea," or "the Sea of Mystery.
The phrase "Bermuda Triangle" itself was first used by the writer Vincent Gaddis in 1964. In the magazine Argosy he published an article entitled "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle" about the strange disappearance of a string of 19 torpedo bombers

Atalanta

The ship was launched in 1845. For twenty years this frigate plied the seas under the name "Juno" in the composition of the British navy. Then it was stripped of all its armament the spars and rigging and rebuilt into a floating prison. But since the oak set and cladding of her hull were in good condition, the Lords of the Admiralty decided in 1878 to turn "Juno" into a curricular sailing vessel. She was repaired, new masts and reys were put on, sails were sewn, and... she was renamed "Atlanta". However already in trial voyage Captain Stirling paid attention to weak stability and maneuverability of the frigate, and this caused him anxiety - geoglobus.ru. "Atlanta" did not obey the rudder well and was dangerously lurching on zyby. The frigate was placed in dock, her spars were shortened, her rigging was re-tightened, and the ballast system was strengthened. After the first training voyage, Madeira had to make some more changes to increase her stability. And on November 7 November 1879 "Atlanta" set sail again: her route was through Azores, Barbados, and Bermuda.

Official British Admiralty reports, and even the testimony of two sailors, say that the Atalanta was a very unstable ship, and with her 109 tons of water and 43 tons of ballast on board, she could easily have capsized and sunk even in a light storm.

It was rumored that there were only two more or less experienced officers on board and that they had to stay on in Barbados because they contracted yellow fever. Consequently, there were 288 inexperienced sailors on the ship.

Analysis of meteorological data confirmed that severe storms had been raging in the Atlantic Ocean area between Bermuda and Europe since early February.

Info
On 31 January 1880, the British training sailing ship Atalanta, with 290 officers and cadets on board, sailed away from Bermuda. On its way to England it disappeared without leaving any trace.

Cyclops

The naval ship Cyclops disappeared in March 1918 after cruising from Rio de Janeiro. More than 300 passengers and crew were aboard. The last communication was recorded near the island of Barbados, after which the ship never made contact again.

On February 16, 1918, the ship left the port of Rio de Janeiro and headed toward the North Atlantic states.

On board were 306 passengers and the ship's crew. "The Cyclops was also carrying 10,000 tons of manganese ore. The ship was last seen near Barbados, where it made an unscheduled stop due to overloading, although the Rio de Janeiro said it was loading properly. No alarms were sent by the crew.

Despite a thorough search, no trace, wreckage or bodies were found.

Disappearing

16 февраля 1918 года корабль покинул порт Рио-де-Жанейро и направился в сторону Североатлантических штатов.

На борту было 306 пассажиров и команда корабля. «Циклоп» также перевозил 10000 тонн марганцевой руды. Последний раз корабль видели в районе Барбадоса, где он сделал внеплановую остановку из-за перегрузки, хотя в Рио-де-Жанейро заявили, что загрузка происходила должным образом. Никаких тревожных сигналов экипаж не посылал.

Несмотря на тщательные поиски ни следов, ни обломков, ни тел обнаружено не было.

Info
The American vessel, built for the U.S. Navy a few years before World War I, is named after a character from Greek mythology.

Военно-морской корабль «Циклоп» исчез в марте 1918 года, отправившись в круиз из Рио-де-Жанейро. На борту находились более 300 пассажиров и команда. Последнее сообщение было зафиксировано недалеко от острова Барбадос, после этого судно больше никогда не выходило на связь.

CotopaXi

On November 29, 1925, the Cotopaxi sailed from Charleston, South Carolina, to Havana, Cuba, under the command of Capt. J. Meyer with a cargo of coal and a crew of thirty-two men. On December 1, the Cotopaxi reported distress by radio, reporting that the ship had lain on her side and gained water during a tropical storm. The ship was officially declared lost on December 31.

The wreck of the Cotopaxa was discovered by underwater researchers on the seabed about 35 nautical miles (about 65 kilometers) off the coast of St. Augustine, Florida, USA.
A variety of specialists were involved in the search for the vessel. The expedition was organized by marine biologist and underwater explorer Michael Barnett, who enlisted the help of British historian Guy Walters.
It is noteworthy that 35 years ago, traces of a shipwreck were discovered on the seabed. However, no one has so far associated that discovery with the Cotopaxi. Armed with new information, underwater researchers visited the site and were convinced that they had found the wreck of the steamer.

Flight 19

The wing, departing from Fort Lauderdale Naval Air Station, was to proceed eastward on a course where it would make a practice bombing run near the Hen and Chickens Shoals group, then proceed on the same course for another 67 miles, then lay down on course 346 and cross Grand Bahama Island, flying 73 miles on this course, lay down on course 241 back and return to base, 120 miles from the last navigation point.

15:40 The pilots' compasses malfunction, the crew thinks they are lost and follow the direction of the sun.

16:10 The problems are reported to the Fort Lauderdale base and the Rescue Unit base in Port Everglades.

16:31 Port Everglades hears a message from Taylor (chief instructor): "One of the pilots thinks that if we go on course 270, we will reach shore."

At 4:45 p.m., broadcast radio stations in Cuba interfere with communications on 4805 kHz, so Taylor is asked to switch to an emergency frequency of 3000 kHz. Taylor replies that he can't do that because he has to keep in touch with the rest of the planes.

At 5:00 p.m. Taylor commands the planes of the wing to turn to heading 090 for 10 minutes.

At 5:15 p.m., Taylor reports to Port Everglades, "I hear you very faintly. We are now flying a course of two hundred and seventy degrees." Then reports that they intend to fly that course "until they run out of fuel or reach shore. Communication with the planes is unstable.

At 5:50 p.m., radio direction finding is the approximate position of the planes - within 100 miles of the coordinates 29°15′N. 79°00′W.

At 17:54 Taylor is again asked to switch to a frequency of 3000 kHz; he replies that he cannot do so in order not to lose contact with the other planes in the formation.

At 6:04 p.m. Taylor transmits: "Course 270 degrees, we haven't been east long enough we can also turn around and fly east."

At 6:20 p.m. Taylor commands: "All planes stay close ... if the shore doesn't show, we'll have to ditch ... When anyone has less than 10 gallons left, we all come down together."

At 7:04 p.m., ashore at the Miami Flight Control Center, one of the pilots of the flight line calls Lieutenant Taylor on his call sign for the last time.

At about 8:00 p.m., the planes run out of fuel, are forced to ditch, after which communication is lost, and no one has heard anything more about the pilots' fate.

Flight mission
Five Evenser torpedo-bombers made a training flight on December 5, 1945, which ended with the loss under unclear circumstances of all five vehicles, as well as a rescue seaplane PBM-5 Martin Mariner sent in search of them.

According to this hypothesis, large methane-saturated bubbles form in water, in which the density is reduced so much that ships cannot stay afloat and sink instantly.

Experimentally it was really confirmed the possibility of sufficiently fast (within tens of seconds) sinking of the ship, being on  border of gas emission in the  case, if the gas is emitted by one bubble, the size of which is more or equal to the length of the ship. However, the question about those gas releases remains open. Besides, methane hydrate is also found in other places in the world's oceans, where mass cases of missing ships have not been recorded.

It is assumed that in the Bermuda Triangle there are giant single waves of about 20-30 meters high. When such a wave occurs, the hull of the ship simply cannot withstand the water pressure crashing down on it and goes to the bottom.

The researchers simulated the Bermuda Triangle and the stray waves on a computer, then sent a model of the Cyclops ship to them. According to the results of the study, the ship could not withstand the pressure, broke apart and sank.

However, the version with killer waves can only explain the disappearance of ships, but not planes.
