New photo evidence purports to show image of Amelia Earhart (well,her back at least), Fred Noonan, and their wrecked Lockheed Electra getting towed after crash landing in the Marshall Islands.

Supposedly, they were sent to a Japanese POW camp where they died.



Detail:


Question for the poll is, "Is it them?"

And where has this pic been for the last 75
years. Being photo shopped and doctored
of course, recently. Number one, who cares.
Ask anybody under 40 and they won't know
who she was. It's like the Lindburgh baby
kidnapping. The what? Who's Lindburgh is
what people ask.

Lindberg was a frame job.

Fred Noonan was undoubtedly beheaded quite promptly, he was not the type to tolerate Japanese captors. I have no idea what happened to Earhart but I doubt it took long.

There was no intelligence mission. There was no Japanese search. The plane was too technologically valuable for the Japanese to pass up. It was sabotage. Fred Noonan was world's best navigator. Final broadcast to USCG Itasca was bogus. Just a grab for the airplane, thats all. Pilot and navigator were expendable and were soon "expended".

Japan had been buying small quantities of Western airplanes and stealing the technology.

I heard an interview with a 90 year
old woman reporter 20 years ago.
She said Lindburgh flying the
Atlantic was the biggest story
of her career, and she reported
on WWII. She said we can have
no idea what an historic event
this was, from America to Europe
in a few hours. It shocked people
into a future that was just around
the corner. It shrunk the world
exponentially and it was never
looked at the same again.

Terrible investigation

They got the right guy
Having and spending the ransom money is pretty damming

Yawn.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

The amount of time and money spend on solving this mystery would amaze you. There have been several scientific expeditions into the area and while one island (name now changed) is often focused on what people fail to recall is that for the radio to work the starboard engine would have to have been in working order.

The simplest explanation is that the antenna they had to deploy was tampered with and it became similar to dropping an anchor overboard and watchine the unsecured anchorline descend also.

I still find the D.B. Cooper case so fascinating. I believe it is still the only unsolved hijacking in U.S. history.

Max Collins wrote a very entertaining historical
novel about Earhart called Flying Blind. Way
more interesting than the real story. Fiction
always is.
