Bermuda Triangle

How dangerous is The Bermuda Triangle?

MMDE: Very dangerous

Current: No different to any other similar sized regions

You can't argue with statistics.

Despite the popular notion of The Bermuda Triangle being extremely treacherous for ships and aircraft, it turns out to be no more or less so than any other similarly sized areas. In fact, it's not even among the top 10 most dangerous places for ships and aircraft.

Livescience has crunched the numbers.

Until 5 planes disappeared in 1945, it was not considered a special region at all, and it was only coined "The Bermuda Triangle" in 1964 by Vincent Gaddis. It seems this name is the clue to it's infamy, because once it stuck, the rumours just grew and grew.

Storms

The region does have the average number of tropical storms aand hurricanes, but one thing to consider is that in the past the radar, comms and guidance systems they employed were significantly inferior to those we see today.
