Do boats and planes regulary travel through the bermuda triangle or is it avoided?

Asked by YoKoolAid (2424 points ) December 11th, 2011

Also there’s one off the coast of Japan – the devil’s triangle or dragons triangle? something like that…are these areas avoided at all? I wonder how much caution if any is exercised when plotting courses through these areas.

Ship owners don’t care much about the sailor’s superstitions, ships and planes cross the Bermuda triangle every day.

The area is loaded with ships and planes crossing it. What is remarkable is how many crossings are just fine.

I don’t think any vessels avoid the triangle if it is the most direct route. Maybe an individual here and there avoids it, but nothing commercial would. Probably half of the planes and ships leaving or arriving into Mismi go through part of the triangle if my memory serves for where it is located.

@Dutchess_III You might want to take a moment to recheck your previous whereabouts. Weren’t you in Kansas, just a moment ago? And now you’re in the Bermuda Triangle? Something’s up there, I think. You have suffered no “unp?” Think again, maybe.

There is no Bermuda Triangle. The Bermuda Triangle story only looks at the total number of tragedies, not the total number vs the amount of traffic. It’s like comparing the total number of traffic accidents in New York City to Fargo, North Dakota. New York has more accidents because it has exponentially more traffic. The mouth of the Mediterranean; the area around the base of India; the area between Japan and Hong Kong; these major shipping routes all have statistics similar to the Bermuda Triangle in accidents and disappearances.
