Loca6.comFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Aviation experts are still baffled by five Navy planes that disappeared from Fort Lauderdale 60 years ago.
Fourteen men were on the planes now known as the "Lost Patrol."
The five single-engine Avenger torpedo bombers departed what is now Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on December fifth, 1945.
The squadron was to fly to a bombing range in the Bahamas, then continue on a triangular path back to base.
But they never made it back.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports aviation experts said it's unlikely a patrol would get lost today.
Sophisticated technology available like the Global Positioning System would prevent it.
