4 thoughts on “Mysteries Of Flight: Amelia Earhart

  1. It is really unfortunate that the fate of such a talented and courageous pilot cannot be determined. I have read the same story numerous times and find it hard to put any blame on Amelia and her piloting skills. The “theory” of being captured by the Japanese army is very plausible. Prior to Pearl Harbor, the Japanese were in the process of conquering land in the South Pacific. Many military operations were not even known by the U.S., until it was too late (i.e. the Solomons, Indonesia, etc.).

    Weather is not discussed too much, if at all. The Navy films taken aboard various ships in WWII, reveal that Mother Nature isn’t always kind. There were numerous storms and cyclones that interfered with Naval operations and even sunk a lot of tonnage of Naval ships. The weather would sometimes come out of nowhere. Why could not that happen in the case of Amelia. I think it would be more dramatic and devastating at 8,000 or 10,000 ft. than on the ocean surface, although the results could be identical. Just another aspect to be considered. Thanks.

  2. Dear Editor,
    Apparently you didn’t watch the persuasive 2017 two-hour History Channel documentary “Amelia Earhart, the Lost Evidence”. Both photographic evidence and eye-witness accounts convey that she and Noonan, and their Lockheed Model 10 Electra, all survived their landing on Mili Atoll, Marshall Islands, that was occupied by the Japanese. Thereinafter, the Japanese incarcerated Earhart and Noonan in Saipan, followed with their execution, and then eliminated the evidence including destruction of the Electra.

  3. This is a typical story of journalists who refuse to accept the verified evidence of a number of witnesses who are Mashall Islanders, and American soldiers. If they had only ttempted to do some basic research such as looking at the first hand observer reports recorded in books written by fred Goerner” The search for Amelia Earhart” and the most up to date record written by Mike Campbell “ The Truth at Last”
    The reports and statements given in these books are very difficult to refute, as they are first hand. The Marshall islanders had always accepted the fact that Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan crash landed and were captured by the japanese. Even before they were actually identified by name. They actually had stamps made to commemorate the event.
