This Day in History:  1945 – Flight 19, a squadron of Navy torpedo bombers, is mysteriously lost to the Bermuda Triangle.  A rescue aircraft that began its search for Flight 19 during the evening hours was never heard from again, either.  In total, 27 men perished.  No trace of their bodies or aircraft have ever been found.


Fact of the Day:   The first person to write about the Bermuda Triangle was Christopher Columbus, who wrote in his journal that his ship’s compass stopped working and that he also saw a fireball in the sky.


Quote of the Day:


Did You Know?  For every human on Earth, there are 1.6 million ants.
