user posted imageCharles Frambach Berlitz, 90, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, an author of several popular books on unexplained phenomena, died December 18, 2003, at University Hospital in Tamarac..A great linguist in his own right, born of a family responsible for a worldwide consortium of language schools, Charles Berlitz is to be credited with internationally popularizing the phenomena known today as "The Bermuda Triangle," due in large part to a book he wrote thirty years ago.Berlitz became interested in mysteries in advance of his authorship of The Bermuda Triangle, however. During visits to Florida (before he and his wife moved there in the 1980s), Berlitz began looking into local phenomena. His first book onwonders would be The Mystery of Atlantis (NY: Grosset and Dunlap, 1969).

This work gave broad attention to Edgar Cayce's prediction that part of the lost continent of Atlantis would come from the sea near Bimini in the late 1960's. Berlitz used as his main source and later collaborator Dr. Mason Valentine, who first reported the mysterious "Bimini Wall," and advanced them as evidence of Atlantis. In 1970, Berlitz's book Mysteries from Forgotten Worlds was penned during the ancient astronauts mania, and covered some of the same topics as Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods. However, as opposed to blaming outer space visitors for constructing the Bimini Island ruins, Easter Island statures, the Great Pyramid, the Nazca lines, and other such monuments, as von Daniken had, Berlitz theorized these structures were theremnants of lost civilizations.Berlitz's book The Bermuda Triangle was published in 1974 by Doubleday, and enjoyed an extremely popular following. Berlitz's retelling of the accounts of plane and ship disappearances specific to an area roughly between Florida and Bermuda captivated readers. Although book reviewers would take Berlitz to task for sensationalizing the vanishings, sales were never diminished by the critiques. Berlitz's The Bermuda Triangle sold 5,000,000 hardbound editions around the world, in many languages. Later paperbacks would sell more copies.

The plane carrying Vittorio Missoni and five others disappeared without a trace last month.The twin-engine BN-2 Islander aircraft took off from the Los Roques island chain on January 4th and headed for Caracas, however after having flown only 11 miles the plane and everyone on board simply disappeared without a trace. A huge search and rescue operation failed to turn up an explanation to what happened to the flight and tothis day the mystery remains unsolved.Several crashes and disappearances are said to have occurred in the region over the last ten years, known as the "Los Roques Curse" the region is perilously close to the infamous Bermuda Triangle.

Could there be something supernatural going on or is there a more conventional explanation ? When ships and planes mysteriously vanish -- sometimes without a trace -- speculation runs wild. Many worry about the conventional -- piloterror, kidnapping and terrorism come to mind. And there are those who worry about the supernatural.

Two of the so-called Bermuda Triangle's most mysterious disappearances in the late 1940s may have been solved. Scores of ships and planes are said to have vanished without trace over the decades in a vast triangular area of ocean with imaginary points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. But journalist Tom Mangold's new examination for the BBC provides plausible explanations for the disappearance of two British commercial planes in the area, with the loss of 51 passengers and crew.

One plane probably suffered from catastrophic technical failure as a result of poor design, while the other is likely to have run out of fuel. Sixty years ago, commercial flights from London to Bermuda were new and perilous. It would require a refuelling stop on the Azores before the 2,000-mile flight to Bermuda, which at that time was the longest non-stop commercial overseas flight in the world. The planes would have been operating at the limit of their range. Today planes arriving at the tiny Atlantic island have sufficient reserve fuel to divert to the US East Coast 700 miles away, in case of emergency.

And the planes of the post-war era were far less reliable than today's airliners.

British South American Airways (BSAA), which operated the route, had a grim safety record. In three years it had had 11 serious accidents and lost five planes with 73 passengers and 22 crew members killed.
