The last and final flight of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan ended with them dying on Gardner Island between the 7th and 9th of July, 1937, according to the conclusion reached by The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) and the Discovery Channel.

Nauru – Ice Cream Cone on the Pacific The “Chater Report” contained in your extensive archive contains the evidence which my friend and I believe misled Mr. Noonan. The light at Nauru was telegrammed to be at an altitude of 5600 feet. We believe this not to be correct. At that day and time we speculate it should have read 560 feet but verification is ongoing as today the island height is just over 200 feet.
