On this day in 1791, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, considered one of the brightest and innovative minds in musical history, dies in Vienna at age 35. He had been ill for week and likely rushed his own death with overwork, but historians generally shrug off the notion that Mozart was pushed toward death by a rival composer as portrayed in the movie Amadeus. On this day in 1933, Utah becomes the 36th state to vote in favor of the 21st Amendment. The amendment, which repeals the national prohibition on alcoholic beverages as enacted by the 18th Amendment, is now law. Many states will continue to ban liquor, however. Mississippi will be the last to lift prohibition, in 1966. On this day in 1945, Flight 19 disappears off the coast of Florida. The training flight consists of 5 US Navy TBM Avenger torpedo bombers, usually with a crew of 3, though on this day one plane was a man short. Their flight plan called for departure from Ft. Lauderdale Naval Air Station heading east over the Atlantic, followed by a turn to the north and then southwest and home. Two hours into the mission, the flight commander reported that all planes were having difficulty with their compasses and that the flight was lost. For 2 more hours, confusing and often distorted radio messages were heard from the pilots, ending in one final message from the commander for all pilots to prepare to ditch their aircraft. Radar had by then determined the planes to be somewhere north of Bermuda, and a SAR aircraft was dispatched to the area. The pilot of the Mariner aircraft reported departure within 3 minutes of receiving orders. It was the last time the aircraft, with a crew of 13, was seen or heard from. The loss of 6 naval aircraft and 27 men in one day is the most famous case of the Bermuda Triangle, an area of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida that has been the site of numerous aircraft and ship disappearances over the years.
