Call the historical association at (954) 3594400 for Like others with an interest in Flight 19, Dorman has his own theory. He believes a combination of bad weather and a shortage of fuel led to the disappearance. "I've flown in the Devil's Triangle many a time, but I've never had anything mysterious happen as other pilots have talked about I can tell you this, bad weather can rip an airplane apart at sea as all ? Okeechobee Blvd. Southern Blvd. LIN LAWSONStaff Artist The disappearance of the patrol 52 years ago popularized the Bermuda Triangle. By Chuck McGinness Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Wayne Dorman was 6 when a squadron of five World War II torpedo bombers flew east from Fort Lauderdale on a training exercise, never to be heard from again. Today, Dorman, a suburban Boynton Beach pilot, will take part in a memorial fly-by ceremony for the 14 crewmen of the Lost Patrol, whose disappearance 52 years ago popularized the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. During the program, Dorman, West Palm Beach pilot Scott Groh and three buddies from Ocala will pass over Navy Park, on the west side of Fort people will be able to see them without leaving the tent It should be quite interesting," McElhiney said. Dorman, 58, took on the task of rounding up four pilots with World War II-era planes to join him. The five will be flying North America AT-6 trainers, which are replicas similar to the torpedo bombers of the Lost Patrol. Of the 15,000 AT-6s built during the war, only about 400 of the warbirds known as "pilot-makers" for their tricky maneuverability are left. "It's not that easy of an airplane to fly. If the training pilots didn't wash out in that plane, they went on to become fighter pilots and bomber pilots," Dorman said. Dorman, who lives at the Willis Gliderport off U.S. 441, bought his plane five years ago in Abilene, Texas, and flew it home. Built in 1943, the plane is worth about $125,000. Plans in for 4 plazas Tm sure Doman 111 have some emotional feelings about it That will be short-lived because I'll be flying and I have to watch what I'm doing," he said. The Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Historical Association conducts an event each year to remember Flight 19 and other servicemen who died in combat This is the first year the fly-by was added as a special honor, said President Allan McElhiney.

William Burrs were : sworn in on March 19. I Bailey said there was not ! enough evidence to let the jury consider a guilty verdict. A con-jviction would have carried a fine I of up to $500 and up to 60 days in ;jail, although jail time was un-: likely. j Bailey also acquitted Moffitt , of committing a crime by meeting 'with Hurley four days before ; Hurley took office. Although ! courts have ruled that the Sun-jshine Law applies to 'councilmembers-elect, those rul-Jings did not come in criminal leases. I Without criminal precedent, ; Bailey said he had to acquit Moffitt. Hurley was not indicted, j But the precedent does apply !to the noncriminal charge of unintentionally breaking the law, ; Bailey ruled. ; Lubin unsuccessfully argued that the case was "quasi-criminal" and should also be dismissed. '. Although Moffitt can't go to jail, she could still be fined up to ;$500, suffer humiliation and lose ;her council seat, Lubin said. Even if Bailey eventually rules ' Moffitt unintentionally broke the : law, it is unlikely the governor will remove her from office. . -!
