OK, so they were on the atoll. Where are their bodies?

I'm pretty sure she was last seen talking to Juliet. About the health of Ben Linus, iirc

Eaten by mollusks?

Can mollusks eat bone? (Serious question, I have no clue.)

I suppose if it's a coral atoll the coral could have grown right over them.

Was this before or after she hid in the attic from the nazis?
 
2012-06-02 10:59:50 PM  
This is what happens when you let the woman drive.

You'll find she eventually died of starvation. Noonan, was nagged to death.

No, Hellen Keller ran across Canada to raise awareness for Cancer Research and died before she made it.

Well, to be fair, she didn't "drive" so much as "plummet". She was apparently an expert plummeter.

"Amelia Earhart Died on Nikumaroro Island"

That's from 2009.
 
2012-06-02 11:10:48 PM  
So, how much is that plane going to be worth when they find it in a couple months?
 
2012-06-02 11:11:02 PM  
I seem to remember that at one point a skeleton was reportedly found, but was not there on subsequent visits....dragged off by animals, or washed off in a storm or something
 
2012-06-02 11:12:00 PM  
who cares, she's dead by now.

Some human remains were found on the atoll in 1940, along with a man's shoe, a woman's shoe, and a glove IIRC. All of those artifacts were lost over the years. I'm willing to bet if they do a good sonar search around the atoll they'll find the Electra sitting on the wall somewhere.

Hey Noonan! I too almost got head from Amelia Earhart!
 
2012-06-02 11:15:11 PM  
Oh, should have added to my comment that I've worked on an atoll that was the site of a famous WWII battle, and despite having a good knowledge of where human remains might be and the availability of accurate maps from the time that they were buried, they can still be a biatch to locate amongst the coral debris

Nah, Florence Nightingale was famous suffragist who once voted in defiance of the law.

A queen is a bicycler. If she shod horses she was a furrier.
 
2012-06-02 11:33:13 PM  
That has to suck. According to the theory in the article they could only run the engine when it was above water...so they were sitting in (or on) the plane as the tide can in and out knowing they were toast. Ugh.

That's not the hollywood ending everyone wanted. That would have been how castaway had ended, if it was a documentary - except it would have been shorter.

She was the one complaining about the British and their infashionable red coats arriving, right?

You're both wrong. Helen Keller died walking a pack of dogs. The Diary of Anne Francis aka "Honey West" tells about hiding in the attic from the nazis. And Florence Nightingale sang in Barkley Square.

Your thinking of dolly Madison. They named the chocolates after Josephine Baker, the pilot who was killed on the island.

You mean the spirit of saint Louis. If you want us to be impressed with you're "knowledge" of "history" you might want to check your facts first.
 
2012-06-02 11:46:59 PM  
It's understandable that she got lost, being deaf, dumb and blind would seriously inhibit someone trying to fly across the Pacific. At least the Nazi's never found her.

No kidding. If the Nazi's found Excalibur in the wreckage they would've taken England real easy.

Slowly staring to death on a deserted island while drinking her own urine.
