    Exclamation They may have finally found Ameila Earheart's Plane!

    I consider this treasure!

    Amelia Earhart's plane found? Sonar images may have pinpointed wreckage | Fox News

    A grainy sonar image captured off an uninhabited tropical island in the southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati might represent the remains of the Electra, the two-engine aircraft legendary aviator Amelia Earhart was piloting when she vanished on July 2, 1937 in a record attempt to fly around the world at the equator.Released by The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), which has long been investigating Earhart's last, fateful flight, the images show an "anomaly" resting at the depth of about 600 feet in the waters off Nikumaroro island, some 350 miles southeast of Earhart's target destination, Howland Island.PHOTOS: Clues Pointing to Amelia Earhart's PlaneAccording to TIGHAR researchers, the sonar image shows a strong return from a narrow object roughly 22 feet long oriented southwest/northeast on the slope near the base of an underwater cliff. Shadows indicate that the object is higher on the southwest (downhill side). A lesser return extends northeastward for about 131 feet.

    it would be cool to know that's for sure. But do you realize how many thousands of planes were lost in the pacific in the big one?

    Cool story, I believe they have already found some artifacts that may have belonged to them.

    A shalloow submersible dive will verify. Yeah, other artifacts have been found on the island. It would be great to know for sure...

    I've been interested in this since "In Search of" TV episodes from the 1970's. How long could they have survived without fresh water?

    Tracking Amelia Earhart

    I was part of TIGHAR's Earhart Project Advisory Council. I saw the original file in the archives in Tarawa that touched off TIGHAR's search and joined in its search of sites in Fiji. TIGHAR's efforts seem to have been taken about as far as they can go, IMHO. Tracking Amelia Earhart - Her Flight Path to the End, by William Snavely, and published by Paragon less than a month ago, offers a compelling new theory regarding the 1937 disappearance of this eponymous aviatrix and her navigator Fred Noonan. It's also the only explanation so far to actually locate a plane. It is located at a depth of over 100 feet offshore Autonomous Bougainville. The plane remains unidentified but seems consistent with Earhart's Lockheed Electra. I'm prominently mentioned in the book and have seen dive photos of the site. I'm accredited by Snavely to the locals guarding the site and have been asked by him to lead an underwater expedition with the sole mission of either identifying the plane as Earhart's or ruling it out. I hope to mount this expedition in 2018. I'm brand new to this site and look forward to getting to know some of you.
