It seems like the only "help" the US did/is doing was convincing the Islanders the researchers aren't going to be up to no good..which is part of the state department's job. Since it's all privately funded, I hope no one there really thinks it's US military or political shenanigans. I mean, until the next tsunami in the area, when we'll be accused of planting earthquake machines.

/Duh. We're picking up the Earthquake machine we left there last time.

To fly from Papua New Guinea to Howland Island is like flying from S.F. to Miami. Then find an island less than 2 miles long a quarter that wide.

ick, in retrospect, I didn't realize this was the same place and people that have been searching here despite criticism (new window) for decades despite it not being anywhere close to Howland. These are the same "bone fragment and shoe" people who claim at least one of the people on the plane made it to this atoll and then died later.

The US state department wouldn't have to ease the fears of people on Howland Island if we wanted to look in the waters near there, as it's uninhabited and the island belongs to the US, anyway.

Is this a reference to something? If it's a joke, I don't get it.

There's physical and anecdotal evidence that Earhart was alive for some time on Nikumororo and likely either died of thirst or infection. I don't see how a piece of safety equipment designed to avoid neck injuries would prevent that. The island is a chunk of sharp coral surrounded by salt water and inhabited only by bugs and coconut crabs, with no significant source of fresh water. Having your neck snapped on impact would be no small mercy.

They found parts of an American woman's makeup kit dating from the period, part of a woman's shoe in a style she wore, and scraps of aluminum. Settlers in the 50s or so claimed to have seen aircraft wreckage on the coral reefs around the island. At least one person has claimed hearing radio messages resembling Earhart's voice, referencing the wreck of SS Norwich City, which was visible from Nikumororo. And there's some evidence of fishing on an uninhabited area of the island that doesn't match Pacific islander techniques.

If she didn't crash on/near that island, she landed on Mars.

/Why'd they let her fly if she was blind and deaf, hurhur...
//I hope if they do find the plane on the bottom of the ocean, it gets declared off-limits before TIGHAR or someone else tries to raise it. It might be a grave, and some things shouldn't be disturbed.

Actually, first thing I thought of...

Poor Iceman only showed up in the pilot, because Marvel Comics said it was too close to X-Men's "Iceman", never mind that a guy freezing things is a pretty straightforward idea, and the Misfits of Science character froze himself out of grief for Amelia Earhart, and now has no mind left per se, and little ability (or will) to control his freezing things. Stan, come on, we thought you were cooler than this.

Iceman just disappeared after the pilot, but they kept driving around in the ice cream truck they used to keep him frozen. Weird.

Ironically the criticism leveled in the linked article is shakier than the 'bone fragment and shoe' theory (I actually don't buy the skeleton part, the scavengers and tides on south pacific islands would have completely devoured a body in hours or days). Particularly with regard to the navigational error. E-6B flight computers (aka hand-held slide rules) aren't infallible, especially if you have incorrect wind information (which seems likely, since Earhart wasn't in radio contact after takeoff, possibly due to a damaged aerial or being on the wrong frequency, which is easy to do with the manual-tuned radios of the day) and can't take accurate sextant readings due to the sun glare of a South Pacific day. And while Noonan was well-regarded as a navigator he was also suspected to be an alcoholic, and Earhart made a few well documented navigation screwups in her time.

If she got anywhere near Howland, she did it without ever being spotted in a bright silver airplane on a sunny Pacific day while being actively looked for by a ship full of trained observers. That's a magic trick worthy of Houdini.

Actually it's not all that unlikely. A small plane like that one would be relatively easy to miss considering that there would have been a considerable amount of cloud cover.

The real reason she got lost is that she was incompetent in using her radio.
