The Lost Squadron Flight 19 Found ( 5 December 1945-Bermuda Triangle)

The Lost Squadron Flight 19 Found

AP: Ft Lauderdale, FL

By Serena Bourne

The lost squadron Flight 19 has been found says noted author and marine
archeologist Clive Cussler stated Saturday. At about 2:10 p.m. on the afternoon
of 5 December 1945, Flight 19, consisting of five TBM Avenger Torpedo Bombers
(manufactured by the Eastern Aircraft under license from Grumman) departed
from the U. S. Naval Air Station, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on an authorized
advanced overwater navigational training flight. A radio message intercepted at
about 4 p.m. was the first indication that Flight 19 was lost. This message,
believed to be between the leader on Flight 19 and another pilot in the same
flight, indicated that the instructor was uncertain of his position and the
direction of the Florida coast. This was the last time they were ever heard of
disappearing in the fabled Bermuda Triangle.One search aircraft was lost
during the operation. A PBM patrol plane which was launched at approximately
7:30 p.m., 5 December 1945, to search for the missing TBM's. This aircraft was
never seen nor heard from after take-off. Cussler stated all six planes are
in remarkable condition. No remains of the crews were found, but numerous
personal items were recovered including the flight log of flight leader
CharlesTaylor. It was wrapped on an oil cloth bag and was in great state of
preservation. The last entry in the flight log Flight Leader Taylor made was APRIL
FOOLS. :o)

I couldn't help it. I got it in an email from a friend.

3. I knew this had to be a joke because I saw all the crewmen get
off the spaceship in Close Encounters of the Third kind. So there!
