    UNIT 4

    Text A

    PRE-READING TASK

    Exercise 1

    Before reading the passage, look at these questions. Then try to find the answers as you read it.

    1. Where is the Bermuda Triangle located?

    2. What happened there in 1945?

    The Bermuda Triangle

    1. On 5th December, 1945, five bombers2 from a United States Naval3 Air Station left Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on a routine training flight over the Atlantic Ocean, east of Florida.

In all, in this area (3900000 square kilometres) of open sea, more than 50 ships and 20 planes have mysteriously disappeared. These include the U.S. Navy ship Cyclops in 1918 and the merchant vessel5 Marine6 Sulphur Queen in 1963. In the same year two U.S. Air Force KC 135 planes also disappeared without trace. In other words, it is not only small boats and planes that have vanished in the area, but the most modern and best equipped too.

    3. Perhaps the most dramatic shipping7 loss in the area was the U.S. Navy nuclear submarine Scorpion8. This vessel, like others before
