On the 18th day at sea, they finally heard the sound of a plane. They tried with all their strength to get the plane 's attention. The plane did not spot them, and they were crushed with disappointment. They next day, two more planes appeared, but once again disappeared without seeing them. Frustration peaked and Cherry, Whittaker, and DeAngelis once again decided to go on their own. They also took Reynolds with them, who was too far gone to ask. Rickenbacker was once again furious with this decision. The next morning, DeAngelis woke Whittaker asking him to look. They two were actually seeing the outline of trees. Finally, after 21 days at sea, they had
Although in the end, some may believe that James Earl Ray is innocent or that one of the conspiracies are true, this overlooks the hard facts brought up in the investigations. The lack of definitive proof or witnesses and the changing statements of the people involved leads to an unsure conclusion.
In Robert Kurson’s book, “Shadow Divers,” he reveals how a group of divers solve one of the last mysteries of World War II. Captain Bill Nagle owns the Seeker which is a charter boat that people can rent to take them to shipwrecks. Nagle is a world renowned deep sea shipwreck diver, because he pushes the limits on how far and where divers can go. Nagle has explored some of the most dangerous shipwrecks such as the Andrea Doria and Texas Tower. He has also retrieved various souvenirs from wrecks such as china dishes and the boat’s bell, but Nagle has massive respect for the history of sunken watercraft. Nagle’s sworn enemy is Steve Bielenda, also a shipwreck diver, who was crowned, “King of the Deep.” The bad blood was developed due to the fact that Bielenda doesn’t respect others and
On November 14, 1970 a Southern Airlines Flight 932 left Kinston, North Carolina, at 6:38 p.m., carrying the Marshall University football team, coaching staff and fans. After an everyday flight, the crew communicated Huntington Airport post
A small barren island, surrounded by the frigid waters of the San Francisco Bay is home to some of the most infamous criminals ever known. This island jail is known as Alcatraz. In 1934 many criminals were rising in power, so in order to keep control of them, Alcatraz was built. Three of the most famous inmates at Alcatraz were Frank Morris, and the Anglin brothers. These three men were famous because of their ingenious escape plan. No one knows if they died, or lived on that night, but due to the great amount of evidence, it is likely that they survived.
It is 8 am, December 7, 1941. Everything is peaceful at U.S. Naval base Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii. Until, suddenly, Japanese bomber planes filled the air and chaos ensumed. Unsuspecting ships were relentlessly attacked. A bomb crashed through the deck of warship USS Arizona. The ship exploded and sank, with more than 1,000 men aboard. Next, torpedoes pierced the hull of battleship USS Oklahoma. With 400 soldiers aboard, she then too couldn’t stay afloat and rolled into the depths. By then end of the attack,every ship in the base was damaged. Eventually, all except the USS Arizona and the USS Utah were salvaged and repaired. All in all, the damage done by the Japanese was extensive and costly. 20 Naval ships and 300 airplanes were destroyed and damaged.
One day in January of 1848 James W. Marshall found gold while he was building a sawmill along the American River near present day Sacramento. The discovery was reported in the San Francisco newspaper in March but it didn 't cause much commotion due to not many people believing it. What really started it was when one day in May 1848 Sam Brannan, a store owner in stutters creek, filled a bottle with gold dust and basically went around San Francisco yelling “Gold, Gold! Gold from American river” Presumably saying it like this due to an accent. This time everyone believed it since there was proof so everyone dropped everything to head to gold fields, people would quit jobs and some newspapers were forced
When a plane went down thet mounted extensive searches and almost always they found the plane within a day or two. Pilots all filed flight plans-a detailed plan for when and when they were going to fly, with all the courses explained. They would come, they would look for him. The searchers would get government planes and cover both sides of the flight plan filed by the pilot and search until they found him. (Paulsen 47)
Over the years there has been a lot of leads and suspects. Richard Floyd McCoy Jr. was a lead suspect. In 1972 he “was accused of hijacking a united airlines 727 jet flying from Newark to Los Angeles after it made a scheduled stop in denver”(Katz 263). The similarities of the 2 hijackings are almost identical. The FBI ruled him out as a suspect “Because he didn’t match the almost identical physical descriptions that flight attendants gave of cooper”(Katz 264). Another suspect was Duane Weber. He told his wife Jo that he was Dan Cooper on his deathbed. There was some similarities between him and cooper and some were “He had black hair, drank bourbon, and chain-smoked”(Katz 266).Weber also told Jo that he hurt his knee jumping out of a plane. Jo told the FBI that “ Weber was sleep talking in may 1978 when he said that he left fingerprints on the aft stairs. Then woke up in a sweat. Jo Weber was doing their taxes and came across an old airplane ticket saying SEA-TAC and Northwest Airlines. On his deathbed “as he lay dying in the hospital in March 1995, weber said that he forgot where he buried $173,000 in a bucket”(Katz 266). These are the 2 major suspects that the FBI ruled out. They have investigated more than 800 suspects and still have not been able to find the
Have you ever wondered how someone 1,000 miles away can have have the same ideology concerning creation as someone else even though they have no way of even hoping for contact, let alone conversation fruitful enough to spark an exchange of ideas? many myths share many similar ideas such as: humans being created from clay, humans being destroyed by the gods due to an imperfection, and humans being created by the god breathing life into them. this fact does not seem so impressive until one understands the fact that many, if not all of these cultures have not had any contact what-so-ever to many of the cultures that share their ideas. yet we plainly see that they are there throughout a large number of creation myths and logic tells us that there must be a reason behind this coincidence. however, many of the theories behind the occurrence are merely speculation, as no one truly knows what happened in a time where there are no witnesses to report the events.
Well, as I was thinking about them, the newspaper clippings I remembered looking at of that disaster hit. “Airplane that was reportedly ‘all good’ crashes”. It seems that the pilots had complained about the plane, but were told that it was a minor inconvenience and told to continue on their way to the next stop. The plane lost power in its right engine after the engine caught fire
In the same line the Carroll A. Deering was another ghost ship from the Bermuda triangle and resulted in creating one of the biggest Maritimes mysteries since then. The ship, while returning from the Brazil to the Portland in January 1921 was found abundant as well as derelict in the diamond shoals in the North so California. Is this case again the crew member and the captain of the ship were missing? Like in many previous cases they vanished forever and never showed up again. The Marine Sulphur Queen, it was a 524 foot carrier of the sulphur in molten form and had started the sail on the Feb. of 1963 from the port of Beaumont in Texas carrying about 39 crew members. The ship was also reported lost in the Florida Strait on the 4th of February and was lost forever, never to be found again (Mayell n.p.).
Do you believe in the Bermuda Triangle? Scientists have been studying the Triangle for many years. Conspiracy theories such as alien abduction, time warps and the lost continent of Atlantis have developed over time. Many scientists are bound to determine whether any of these conspiracies are real, or if it is all imaginary.
There are a lot of theories that were irrecoverable as the conspiracy by the society because they are too unconventional to believe, and very shocking and shameful issues that are very hard to comprehend. However, this theory circulated the news world quickly because it sounds very bizarre. At the same time, most people immediately denounce any conspiracy theory as fake … and sometimes as unpatriotic or just plain ridiculous. For many, conspiracy theories are just man nature. Not everyone is reliable, diligent and forthcoming with their motives. Certainly, we can all agree on this. And how “conspiracy theory” term get grouped to fiction works, fantasy and traditional folklore?
Everyone is curious about the existence and location of Atlantis. That is why a group of student researchers and I, are a part of a search from Duke University. We explored different parts of the ocean to see if we can find any artifacts can prove the existence of Atlantis and its location. We searched the most commonly named places of where Atlantis might be. We will be searching for Atlantis around spring, where the currents won’t be too high. We decided to search now because our technology is much more advanced and we have better underwater equipment which can help us get more accurate results and can help our search.
