TRAGEDY OF ERRORS

26 Apr
Fred and I have been reading accounts about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan since we were kids. We have, like so many others, formed many opinions about what transpired on July 2nd 1937 in the Central Pacific. First there was the official government statement, she crashed and sank. Then Fred Goerner’s ground breaking work about a secret mission to photograph Japanese installations in the Japanese Mandated Islands.

30 Dec
Yet another “hot lead” by The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) has fizzled under the bright light of logic based research. To TIGHAR’S credit, much of the undoing of the “2012 Dr. Berry’s Freckle Ointment Jar publicity storm” was due to their own research.  All the freckle cream that was sold in the type of jar uncovered at the “7 Site” on Gardner Island (Nikumaroro) was opal glass (opaque white).
