The Bermuda Triangle (or Devil’s Triangle) is one of the great mysteries of the ocean. It a section of the North Atlantic Ocean off North American in which more than 50 ships and 20 airplanes are said to have mysteriously disappeared. It has claimed thousands of lives without a trace. Some speculate the cause is a strong magnetic field in the area, paranormal activity, Atlantis, strange weather patterns, human error or even aliens.

Series Connection

According to Daniel Whidden  (creator, writer and producer of Think Story videos)1, the writers of Manifest could have sent the Stone family anywhere in the world on vacation, but they chose Jamaica—that may be because the flight path takes the plane through the Bermuda Triangle. One clue of finding out what happened to Flight 828, is discussed in a video by Think Story. He says that taking a flight from Montego Bay to John F. Kennedy Airport takes approximately 3 hours and 40 minutes, and looking at the time it disappeared, that would put the plane right on the corner of the Bermuda Triangle.

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle or Hurricane Alley, is a loosely-defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Most reputable sources dismiss the idea that there is any mystery. The vicinity of the Bermuda Triangle is amongst the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean islands. Cruise ships and pleasure craft regularly sail through the region, and commercial and private aircraft routinely fly over it.

Popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported, or embellished by later authors.
