Flight 19 missing,still unexplained

December 5th 2011,it is some sixty years ago since the five American air planes went missing off the coast of Florida,an idea came in that may just be plausable.

 a reconstruction picture of what flight 19 would have looked like.

Hi Roy,

I wonder if they encountered a methane cloud? This can happen when there is an abnormal rise in sea temp. and allows huge bubbles of methane previously held at the bottom of the ocean by the cold water there. If the (continues below the text below)

Flight 19

US Navy TBF Grumman Avenger flight, similar to Flight 19. This photo had been used by various Triangle authors to illustrate Flight 19 itself.
Flight 19 was a training flight of TBM Avenger bombers that went missing on December 5, 1945, while over the Atlantic. The squadron's flight path was scheduled to take them due east for 120 miles, north for 73 miles, and then back over a final 120-mile leg that would return them to the naval base, but they never returned.
A search and rescue Mariner aircraft with a 13-man crew was dispatched to aid the missing squadron, but the Mariner itself was never heard from again. Later, there was a report from a tanker cruising off the coast of Florida of a visible explosion[40] at about the time the Mariner would have been on patrol.
While the basic facts of this version of the story are essentially accurate, some important details are missing. The weather was becoming stormy by the end of the incident, and naval reports and written recordings of the conversations between Taylor and the other pilots of Flight 19 do not indicate magnetic problems.[41]

Hi Roy,  cold water should rise above a certain point these huge gas bubbles can rise and ships have been lost completely due to sailing in to one of these holes in the sea. There is also suspicion that such bubbles can rise in the air and should any aircraft fly into one it would explode? The theory was once tested using a small vessel in a test tank, air bubbles were release below the hull and eventually the vessel became submerged as the water could no longer support it due to the air bubbles!


Check out the sea water as it courses into the Volcano,it later becomes many gases,one of which is CH4 or as we know it Methane,backing up the idea that such a thing could exist but where is the Volcano?
Hello Proffesor Notty,
Thats not a bad idea if you know whats in the area  has a maximum depth of 7,686 metres (25,217 ft).
The Cayman Trough, (also known as the Cayman Trench, Bartlett Deep and Bartlett Trough) is a complex transform fault zone pull apart basin which contains a small spreading ridge on the floor of the western Caribbean Sea between Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.[1] It is the deepest point in the Caribbean Sea and forms part of the tectonic boundary between the North American Plate and the Caribbean Plate. It extends from the Windward Passage, going south of the Sierra Maestra of Cuba toward Guatemala. The transform continues onshore as the Motagua Fault, which cuts across Guatemala and extends offshore under the Pacific Ocean, where it intersects the Middle America Trench subduction zone.

Hi Roy,

The theory was developed as a result of the number of unexplained marine and aircraft losses in the Bermuda Triangle. The idea was that in this region there was a tendency for large areas of vegetation to collect and eventually sink to the ocean floor where bacteria would feed on it thereby releasing all sorts of gasses such as Hydrogen Sulphide and Methane. So I just assumed that it could be the same there but never knew that there were those sea vents in that area supporting life forms that could also produce these gasses as a result of their feeding, this would add to whatever methane could be produced by the vents. The idea that all this gas is held in place below the ocean only due to a critical temperature and should that change then the gasses would surface.

Methane hydratesMain article: Methane clathrate

Worldwide distribution of confirmed or inferred offshore gas hydrate-bearing sediments, 1996.

Source: USGSAn explanation for some of the disappearances has focused on the presence of large fields of methane hydrates (a form of natural gas) on the continental shelves.[28] Laboratory experiments carried out in Australia have proven that bubbles can, indeed, sink a scale model ship by decreasing the density of the water;[29] any wreckage consequently rising to the surface would be rapidly dispersed by the Gulf Stream. It has been hypothesized that periodic methane eruptions (sometimes called "mud volcanoes") may produce regions of frothy water that are no longer capable of providing adequate buoyancy for ships. If this were the case, such an area forming around a ship could cause it to sink very rapidly and without warning.

Publications by the USGS describe large stores of undersea hydrates worldwide, including the Blake Ridge area, off the southeastern United States coast.[30] However, according to another of their papers, no large releases of gas hydrates are believed to have occurred in the Bermuda Triangle for the past 15,000 years.[15]

How hard can this be? makes sense to me.
