A group of researchers, including French scientist Claude Lacombe and his interpreter, David Laughlin, arrive in the windswept Sonoran Desert in Mexico to investigate a mystery.
Officials have discovered Flight 19, a group of five U.S. Navy Avenger torpedo-bombers who disappeared on a training mission over the Bermuda triangle. (Source)
Why the bombers are in the Sonoran Desert in mint condition is a total mystery. They've got fuel in the tanks and family photos in the cockpits. When technicians turn on the ignition, they start right up.
Local officials bring Lacombe to an elderly man who says he witnessed the event. The man's face is sunburned.
Lacombe questions him, and the old man says the sun came out in the night and sang to him. Who wants to bet the sun is a Beatles fan?
