While efforts to find Amelia are commendable, my personal suspicion is that she is dead.

Meh - everybody knows she was abducted by the Briori and placed in stasis.

It was located with irrefutable proof in 1940, but who cares?

I believe after 70 years, both Amelia and her plane are no longer in operation.

Today would have been her 115th birthday.

Had she actually lived to be 115 if she had survived the crash, that is.

Even if we HADN'T found the wreckage in the 40s, wouldn't it kinda be nigh-impossible now? I mean, 75 years in salt water isn't exactly gonna be kind on an aircraft, not to mention currents moving stuff around when it breaks off, etc.

Not as much as you think. There is a famous dive spot near Oahu called Corsair that is of a 1940's single seat plane wreck. Its still in remarkable condition, GIS it to see for yourself.

Sincerely curious, what is your source for this? All I can find on a quick search is that there was wreckage found in 1945 near Rabaul in Papua New Guinea by an Australian Army patrol that could possibly have been hers but there is no physical or photographic evidence.
 
2012-07-24 05:25:40 AM
wait..didn't unsolved mysteries already solve this?
 
2012-07-24 05:26:50 AM
A Cracked article from 2010 mentioned that this mystery had already been solved back in 1940.

But hey, since when do we ever let a little reality get in the way of our unfounded beliefs, right?

Possibly. The Civil War was a crazy time for everyone.

I would like to announce that I, too, have failed to find Amelia Earhart's plane.

To the best of my knowledge, it is not in Northeast Tennessee.

At least, not on any of the golf courses.
 
2012-07-24 06:58:15 AM
Wait, she was missing? I really need to keep up on the news.
 
2012-07-24 07:13:41 AM
Amelia Earhart's plane went missing in the Pacific Ocean. What is the scale of any search (yes, we know a general area where the plane is most likely to be, but.....) that may be conducted? Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, were flying a twin-engined Lockheed Electra. If we cloned the missing plane by 5,000 and crashed them at random in the Pacific, such is the size of that body of water that the chances of finding any one of the 5,000 would not be materially greater than the one that is out there.....somewhere. A needle in a haystack has it better.

That's okay... between the Penn State stuff, and what happened in Colorado, some things just go under-reported.

These guys have made a career of raising money to "search" and then "searching" and either coming up with nothing or claiming anything they find has to have been from Amelia. Basically they have found a way to get the public to pay them to go on vacation to the South Pacific every few years.

My money's on these folks for the win:
http://www.nauticos.com/amelia.htm

They're using something they call "science" to narrow down the search area. I know folks on the communications/navigation side of the Nauticos group. They produce probable scenarios and areas where the wreckage is likely to be. This data is cross-referenced with other known and deduced data from other teams to reduce the search area and produce areas of high probability.

There *is* a payoff for the organization that finds the wreckage. It comes from the rights to the story and video from the likes of the Discovery Channel, History Channel, etc. The payoff is large enough that it's worth the risk and expense of the research vessel.

In fairness there is very strong circumstantial evidence that they found the crash site but nothing irrefutable

The bones that are referenced in the Cracked article were lost sometime around 1941 and were originally identified as belonging to male about 5 ft 5 in tall. The identification of them belonging to a woman of northern European ancestry was made in 1998 by two anthropologists based on analysis of a written description, not on an actual examination of the bones themselves. The only other bone fragments found at the site couldn't even be identified as being human much less as being from a particular individual.

The other artifacts (a sextant box, an aluminum panel, a piece of plexiglass, a piece of a woman's shoe, bronze bearings, a zipper pull and a broken glass bottle) are other strong pieces of evidence but there hasn't been any wreckage or remains that can be conclusively said to have come from Earhart or her plane.

DISCLAIMER - I am not a conspiracy nut and I think it is more likely than not that Earhart and Noonan crashed on or near Gardner Island where these artifacts were found, but I don't think it can be said to have been determined beyond all doubt that this is what happened.

plane crashed, she lived, recovered, changed her name, and moved back to the states.

and i believe this more than someone finding the wreckage and a bunch of skeletons.

For any "AER -heads" that still have the itch to find some one, Joseph Laurence Halpern has been missing since August 14, 1933. The only unaccounted missing person left in Rocky Mountain National Park and there is far more to that story.

Read some books that dont talk about a mysterious crash. They are less far fetched.

There's a whole lotta ocean out there, and she's probably in it.
