Odisha's Bermuda Triangle again Hawk aircraft crashed, Indian Air Force



               The Hawk aircraft of Indian Air Force that crashed on Odisha, Jharkhand border on Tuesday (20 March 2018) is one among more than a dozen such crashes to have been reported in the region since the World War II days. At least 15 crashes have been reported in a triangle formed by Piarboda near Bankura (West Bengal) to Chakulia (Jharkhand) and Amarda Road Airfield (Odisha), according to researcher Anil Dhir. The last crash in 2015 too was of the Hawk fighter trainer from the Kalaikunda Air Base.

               If you don't know the Bermuda Triangle meaning then remember The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, 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.

2015: A Hawk fighter trainer from Kalaikunda Air Base crashed 

May 4, 1944: American Liberator collided with a Harvard de Havilland plane before crashing at Amarda Road Airfield. Four crew members died. The crash site was about 100 km from today’s spot

May 7, 1944: A Liberator which had taken off from Digri on a special mission crashed 20 minutes after take-off At least 10 crewmen were killed. Digri is 90 km from the present crash spot

May 13, 1944: De Havilland which had taken off from Amarda Road Station crashed. The crew escaped

July 26, 1945: Two British Royal Air Force B-24 Liberator four-engine bombers -- EW225 and EW247 -- collided at low altitude. 14 crew members killed


            In the last two years of World War II, the allied forces had anticipated the Japanese onslaught from the North-East and a string of airfields was made in the region.A number of airfields were established at Jharsuguda, Amarda Road, Charbatia, Hijli, Dudhkundi, Digri, Salua, Chakulia, Kalaikunda and Bishnupur to boost air support for Allied Forces against Japanese onslaught. Most are now disused and forgotten.Dhir says there is no single theory to explain the mishaps. Most crashes in this area occurred in good weather conditions and the airplanes were victims of different circumstances while flying over the triangle. Since half the crashes remain unexplained, there are speculations.
