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 X4 Okeechobee Blvd. Southern Blvd. UNA LAWSQNStaff 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. t 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. Tm sure 1 11 have some emotional feelings about it That will be short-lived because 111 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.

Good luck. In some areas, its a 20-minute drive while speeding to the nearest one. The Acreage isn't convenient to consumers. No variety stores, ?ga.s stations, or pastry shops Jriqthing that might offer a pay jpftione. But that's about to change, j Commercial development plans i might sprout as many as four new ! shopping sites in or near The Acreage. j The latest to hit the county .planning office is a 2.8-acre site at Seminole Pratt-Whitney and Northlake Boulevard. Its owners, .Pratt Road Associates, asked the county to change the land-use 'designation from rural to com-jmercial. I The owners want to use the ite for 42,000 square feet of retail ishops. That's enough room for a 'gas station, or a small grocery ; store or several smaller shops, county planners estimate. I ', If approved, that development swould join two other strip malls on Seminole Pratt-Whitney Road. 'Ail Orange Boulevard, a Publix is planned as the major tenant on a ;2feacre shopping site. Just south dJ Orange, a Winn-Dixie-jaiKhored strip mall is under construction on 10 acres of the ;Callery-Judge Groves, about a 'half mile north of Sycamore Drive. The fourth commercial development in the area was ap-proved at Northlake Boulevard iand the future extension of State iRoad 7. That's in West Palm ! Beach, close to The Acreage border. That site will have a ; Publix and some retail shops, and i there also are plans for a bank !and gas station. i These three developments !are further along than the site at ;Seminole Pratt-Whitney and 'Northlake. County planners sent !the details to the Indian Trail llmprovement District this week ;for comments. Indian Trail is the ;only formal authority in The (Acreage. j While the county makes the .final decision on development in The Acreage, Indian Trail does 'have input on drainage issues.
