Origin[edit | edit source]

Flight 19 was the designation of five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that vanished over the Bermuda Triangle on December 5th, 1945 during a routine over water navigation training flight. All fourteen airmen on the flight were lost, as were all thirteen crew members of a PBM Mariner flying boat which assumed to have exploded mid-air while searching for the flight. Navy investigators couldn't determine the cause but they assume they pilots may have become disoriented and ditched in rough seas after running out of fuel. According to the series number on the plane that is in the Warehouse it belonged to Captain E. J. Powers ISMC, Aircraft number FT-36, Series 46094. Along with Powers two other members of the crew were missing, Senior Sgt. Howell O. Thompson and Sgt. George R Paonessa. It is unknown if the fear of being lost, the determination of the crew to be the best the Navy could offer or some residual effects from the Bermuda Triangle turned this aircraft into an artifact.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Able to drop its payload with one hundred percent precision.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Other artifacts that hailed from the Bermuda Triangle have a slight pull to the area, the bomber however has the strongest pull. It is assumed that because four other bombers are still lost they are calling for their fifth brother to come home. The thick chains are never to be removed however rotation of where they are bolted is required every year to prevent it from being freed.
