Was Amelia Earhart on a Secret Mission?

03 Nov
Were Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan on a secret mission for the U.S. Government?   11/3/16 That is a question that is almost 80 years old and there is still no definitive answer; or is there?  Possibly the question was answered on May 25, 1938, less than a year after their disappearance, by an article in the Pacific Island Monthly.

TIGHAR’S SEARCH FOR EARHART- RIGHT REASONS, WRONG CONCLUSIONS

04 Sep
It appears Ric Gillespie of TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) is becoming a master at sleight of hand. I admire his ability to pull reasons to go back to Nikumaroro Island out of his….hat. The search for the “any idiot artifact” goes on and on and on.
