What ever happened to Amelia Earhart?

Recommended Posts

Breaking news: In an update to a previous story, further analysis of the claimed Earhardt wreckage photo has cast doubt on the theory that a piece of the wreckage is visible protruding from the water.

"Actually, that's just a booger" said the CIA's chief document analyst.

In what some say is an effort to save face, the State Department has decided to continue to fund the operation to Nikumaruro, however they won't be looking for a wreckage. The Discovery channel has bought the rights to Nikumaruro Gold, premiering this fall

ill go with a crash into the ocean.

No no Earhardt and all on board her craft were mysteriously shifted due to a rift in the space time continuum and arrived over Cardiff England sometime in the late 2007 I think it was. (Kudos to anyone who gets the reference)

or.. maybe she transcended space and time.

Amelia Earhart: New evidence tells of her last days on a Pacific atoll (+video)

(TIGHAR), a non-profit foundation promoting aviation archaeology and historic aircraft preservation, reported new details Friday leading researchers to this conclusion: Earhart and Noonan, low on fuel and unable to find their next scheduled stopping point – Howland Island – radioed their position, then landed on a reef at uninhabited Gardner Island, a small coral atoll now known as Nikumaroro Island.

Using what fuel remained to turn up the engines to recharge the batteries, they continued to radio distress signals for several days until Earhart’s twin-engine Lockheed Electra aircraft was swept off the reef by rising tides and surf. Using equipment not available in 1937 – digitized information management systems, antenna modeling software, and radio wave propagation analysis programs, TIGHAR concluded that 57 of the 120 signals reported at the time are credible, triangulating Earhart’s position to have been Nikumaroro Island.

"Amelia Earhart did not simply vanish on July 2, 1937,” Richard Gillespie, executive director of TIGHAR, told Discovery News. “Radio distress calls believed to have been sent from the missing plane dominated the headlines and drove much of the US Coast Guard and Navy search.”

"When the search failed, all of the reported post-loss radio signals were categorically dismissed as bogus and have been largely ignored ever since," Mr. Gillespie said. But the results of the study, he said, “suggest that the aircraft was on land and on its wheels for several days following the disappearance.”

In addition, several artifacts found years ago – some of it discovered by Pacific islanders who later inhabited the island – seem to confirm TIGHAR’s conclusion.
