Default Amelia Earhart Update: TIGHAR Claims She and Noonan Landed on Pacific Island

New Evidence Uncovered About the Fate of Amelia Earhart
9/14/16


The disappearance of Amelia Earhart during an attempt to fly around the world in 1937 has long been an unsolved mystery.

Now, an organization called The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) claims that, instead of dying in a crash as some had thought, she and flight navigator Fred Noonan likely ended up as castaways on an island in the Pacific.



According to its website, TIGHAR believes that the plane landed safely around Gardner Island, and the duo sent distress calls for several days afterward.

The group points to evidence of more than 100 of these calls made between July 2 and 6, notes the Huffington Post.



During this time, Earhart and Noonan, if he survived, are believed to have subsisted on rainwater and local wildlife like turtles and fish.

TIGHAR's website states that, eventually, "Amelia died at a makeshift campsite on the island's southeast end. Noonan's fate is unknown."



Meanwhile, the plane, named Electra, is believed to lie "in deep water off the island's west end."

The group plans to conduct a search for the aircraft in the near future.

I often considered the possibility that Earhart and Noonan could have perished in the crash. Even though they had survival equipment onboard they might not have made it in time to use it. Based on the fact that they had been airborne for around 18 hours, they certainly would have been quite exhausted and if they crashed, their fatigue might have inhibited them from being able to take survival action in time to abandon the plane and utilize their life rafts while awaiting rescue.

On the flip side, as their plane went down, they still could have had a chance at survival, if the crash could have briefly nullified their fatigue and given them a boost of energy to take action in time to save their lives.

guess we'll wait to see if the plane turns up on that search. why do they need to wait to search though? just do it already and that way we know.

Don't they come out with a super similar theory every 1-2 years? Just to continue to get funding for their "research" :/

Hey, you stole my post, although I was going to say every 3-4 years.

Future historians will note a definitive break in Earth eras when there was an Amelia Earhart theory that didn't involve Ric Gillespie.

I think this story fits into the "Cases that will never be solved" basket.

I think they have found some decent evidence over the years (like the piece of airplane sheet metal). However, they are far from claiming this as "solved." I love that press conference back in the 80s or 90s when he basically said "We have found the proof of what happened to Amelia Earhart."

Not quite.

THIS ^^^^

I keep waiting for them to say "We have new proof! We found a Nokia flip phone and an empty bottle of Pepsi Clear on the island, which proves they were there. Obviously she would have called for help but the phone ran out of juice, and she nursed the Pepsi Clear until it was gone..."

The supposed skeleton has been lost and apparently not even photographs exist, but measurement comparisons are interesting. https://tighar.org/Projects/Earhart/...rhartArms.html

So now the skeleton has suddenly turned up?

Plane, apparently, has not.

Thanks for posting this. I have little doubt that these remains will not be AE. I'm positive she and Fred crashed in the ocean after getting lost and running out of fuel.
