New Discovery May Shed Light on Amelia Earhart's Fate

41 posts in this topic

It's the unexplained mysteries of history that seem to most inspire conversation, even fascination at times, depending upon the circumstance, and, of course, books searching for an answer.

 

I rather doubt that Amelia Earhart's name would be discussed as often as it is if it wasn't for the circumstances of her disappearance.

 

Speculations about JFK's death, who was Jack the Ripper, this kind of conversation will never leave us - unless there is a ever definitive answer which seems highly unlikely.

 

Plus society has to deal with the Amelia want-a-be's (nutjob)

Your hatred of the Clintons warps your perspective. One, the rape charge against Clinton is an unproven allegation.

Two, there is NOTHING funny about someone dying of AIDS.

 

Well, this warp-o believes the women.

 

And if there's nothing funny about Bubba having aids, why does it make me laugh so? Oh...right..... the warping. Never mind.

I'm no expert on Bubba's "foibles" but I don't see how anyone can possibly disbelieve Juanita Broderick. How could any reasonable personable look at her and listen to her and not believe her?

 

An ostrich, perhaps.

In the photo, a ship can be seen towing a barge with an airplane on the back; on a nearby dock are several people. Does This Photo Show Amelia Earhart After Her Plane Disappeared? http://www.history.com/news/does-this-photo-show-amelia-earhart-after-her-plane-disappearedDockPhoto-E.jpeg

Watching this on the History Channel.  Photo analyst conclusion is the man holding on to the sign is within 99% certainly Fred Noonan.  The woman with back turn is more likely Amelia Earhart (shoulder measurements).

Actual photo determined has NOT been altered in any way.

Japanese Blogger Points Out Timeline Flaw In Supposed Earhart Photo

A Japanese military history buff has found library records showing a photo supposedly depicting Amelia Earhart survived a crash landing in 1937 was actually published two years before the famous aviator vanished.

 

In the History Channel special, some analysts argued that the photo showed Earhart (sitting at the end of the dock, facing away from the camera) and her navigator Fred Noonan (on the far left of the image). They identified the ship in the background as the Koshu Maru, and argued that the Koshu Maru rescued Earhart and Noonan after they crash-landed in 1937.

 

But a Japanese military history blogger, who goes by @baron_yamaneko on Twitter, found evidence the photo predated Earhart's famous disappearance. The History Channel is aware of the evidence and says it is investigating.

 

In an English-language post, the blogger explains that "the photograph was first published in Palau under Japanese rule in 1935, in a photo book ... So the photograph was taken at least two years before Amelia Earhart disappear[ed] in 1937 and a person on the photo was not her."

***********************************************

The History Channel f@kd up on this one.

Women from Kansas love Flying because that's the only way to truly experience the adventure of travel.

 

Amelia Earhart is from Atchison Kansas and was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. In recognition of that accomplishment, she was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross by the United States Armed Forces:

 

" For heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight. "

 

She also is the only Kansas woman honored with her Statue in the Rotunda of the Kansas Capitol Statehouse with fellow Kansan Dwight D Eisenhower leading the honorees.

The History Channel now says it was actually a photo of Hillary Clinton on the dock looking for the Russians. She claimed they stole her luggage and it became a grudge that lasted all the way until her election loss to Donald Trump. She now frequently blames them for everything, including her inability to drive a car and cook in a microwave.

Did she try looking on SARAH PALIN'S front porch?  Maybe THAT'S where the Russians dumped her luggage.  You know, easy reach and all.....  ;)

Even with the best navigator, hitting that tiny speck of an island back then is problematic at best.  One would need today's GPS.  More likely she ran out of fuel and ditched into the ocean.  Best to start looking several miles down. Time to give this a rest.
