A New Bermuda Triangle Off The Coast Of Venezuela?

Fancy a trip? The Guardian reports:

The as-yet-unexplained disappearance last Friday of the plane carrying six passengers and crew, including Italian fashion mogul Vittorio Missoni, has prompted some to blame the “Los Roques curse”.

There have been a series of mysterious plane crashes and “vanishings” over the past decade or so between the Caribbean archipelago of Los Roques, where Missoni’s plane disappeared mid-air, and the Venezuelan capital Caracas, 140km to the south. Inevitably, comparisons have been made with the infamous Bermuda Triangle, the area between Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico that has long had a reputation for unexplained disappearances of ships and planes.

To date, no wreckage of Missoni’s plane has been located since it took off from Los Roques for Caracas. Venezuela’s civil aviation authority said the aircraft’s last recorded position was 18km south of the Los Roques.

    Being from Venezuela all I can say is that from what I have read and seen it is not a problem with los roques but the level (or better say lack of) maintenance to the small airplanes that go there. Currency exchange controls by the government and inflation make it harder for pilots and owners to buy new planes or pieces for repairs.

    The incidents around the Bermuda Triangle are explainable by methane. I thought this was well known.

    Los Rockets is one wild & crazy place
    that in itself could be an explanation
