Perhaps Too Objective In Places ....
13 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

.... And not objective enough in other places .

This docu-drama concerning the Bermuda triangle can`t make up its mind if it`s trying to be sceptical or not . Take the case of Flight 19 for example. It tells us flight leader Lt Charles Taylor was experienced but not how experienced . It also tells us he had a strange premonition of something terrible was going to happen that day . He flies off and despite having navigational equipment FT 19 got lost and after losing radio contact with base were never seen again . A Martin Mariner involved in the search also disappeared that day and was believed to have exploded in mid flight . That make of plane had a bad reputation and was described by crews as " A flying gas tank "

Much of what the documentary mentioned concerning Flight 19 is myth embellished by writers like Charles Berlitz who seem to have twisted facts or made up their own facts . There`s no evidence that Lt Taylor had any forboding that day but witnesses said he appeared to be suffering from a bad hang over . Likewise it`s also infactual to say all the planes had navigational equipment as lots of stuff from the planes would be taken and used in the black market . This was very common in those days . Strangely despite repeating myths the docu-drama doesn`t mention the greatest myth ( Well it`s more of a lie than a myth ) that Lt Taylor`s last words were " Don`t come after us , they look like they`re from outer space " and it`s correctly stated that the Martin Mariner exploded in mid flight almost certainly down to a fuel leak so there`s no mystery as to its fate.

I don`t know if the producers were aware of this in 1978 ( It`s not mentioned here ) but the theory now about many of the disappearances of ships and aircraft is down to ocean flatulance in the area ie methane gas escapes from the sea bed and this causes sea water to lose its bouyancy causing ships to quickly sink . It`s also very explosive which could explain planes disappearing . The documentary does state that there`s very strange localised weather patterns and strange electro magnetic fields that have an effect on navigational equipment , so if you`re a sceptic like me you won`t like it much for repeating myths while non sceptics will dislike for not repeating them
