In Wikipedia , it has explained The Bermuda Islands or The Somers Isles) is a British overseas territory in the North Atlantic Ocean.

In 1942, Weird disappearances and sightings in the Bermuda triangle date back when the first long journey by water to America took place. While sailing through the imaginary line Christopher Columbus wrote of weird sightings in the ship log he and his crew had observed a large ball of fire fall into the sea and that the ship's compass was behaving differently.

This course would take them on a triangular path over the sea. About an hour and a half Lt. Taylor reported that his compass is broken and its not working. Planes today have a number of ways that they can check their current position, including listening to a set of GPS (Global Positioning Satellites) in orbit around the Earth. He was a good pilot, but he hadn't spent a lot of time flying east toward the Bahamas, which was where he was going on that day. Apparently Taylor had become confused at some point in the flight.
