YouTube Review: This Pilot Tells What Really Happened After Surviving Bermuda Triangle



Bermuda Triangle has always been one of the world’s greatest mysteries. It is a mythical section of the Atlantic Ocean roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico where more than dozen of ships and airplanes have been reported to disappear when passing through. Unsettling situations surround some of these accidents including the “Flight 19” case. A group of five U.S. Navy bombers disappeared over the Bermuda Triangle on December 5, 1945.

Posted by Ridddle on YouTube, the video shares about a pilot that ‘survived’ the Bermuda Triangle:

Beechcraft Bonanza, a single-engine aircraft had three passengers. The pilot, Bruce Gernon was on board with his business partner and his father. The flight was scheduled to fly from the Andros island to Miami beach on December 4, 1970, where the journey usually took one and a half hours. But on that day, they made it to Miami within 14 minutes.

The flight took off and was gaining altitude. As the aircraft reached 11,000 feet, Bruce saw a massive dark cloud ahead of them. It wasn’t the first time as he already managed to cut through some of it but it seems like the cloud was growing every minute. He had no choice but to move through the cloud, once again.

As the aircraft entered the gigantic dark cloud, everything went black. No single ray of sun was passing through. Bruce was confused with his situation as the weather was pretty normal without any sign of rain or thunderstorm so he was wondering where could the dark cloud come from. As he braces himself through the cloud, he witnessed a blaze of light that could be anything but a flash of lightning. Bruce kept on flying but the cloud never seemed to end until he saw a small light where he immediately flies his aircraft towards the end.

To his surprise, the exit hole felt like it was shrinking and his navigation instruments began to malfunction. Eventually, he managed to get out of the dark cloud. As everything went to its normal state, Bruce contacted the ground control to determine their location but it was impossible because his flight was not showing on the radar. Not long after, the dispatcher announced that the flight has reached Miami and they had a clean landing. The flight had a speed of 180 km per hour and it is impossible for them to make a trip in just 45 minutes.

It remained a mystery until today even after Bruce consulted the aeronautical engineers and professors to provide him an answer to his ‘teleportation’ puzzle. Today, Bruce has written his own documentation book titled ‘Beyond the Bermuda Triangle‘.
