Stop Looking

Apparently Amelia Earhart has been found…well sort of. A US scientist is 99% certain that the bones found on Howland Island in the 1940s were that of the lost aviator. Problem is, the bones have been lost. But never let that get in the way of a good story. The scientist has the original bone measurements (pre lost) and from those measurements he has estimated the size of Amelia’s bones against photographs … and they apparently match. Not very convincing if you ask me. The theory is Amelia crashed on the island and lived as a castaway before succumbing to the elements.

PSST You might want to keep looking…just saying.

The Amelia Earhart Mystery Finally Solved

AmeliaYesterday’s announcement that a piece of metal found on Nikumaroro (Gardner Island) in 1991 was part of Amelia Earhart’s plane is cold comfort. Seems poor Amelia and Noonan were stranded like the professor and Gilligan (minus coconut cream pies) on an atoll , 550km from where search planes were looking. Even more unluckier, none of the islands , including Gardner (which they believe Amelia and Noonan were on) had any fresh water. Experts are convinced the riveted metal that was found was attached to the fuselage of her plane. Along with the piece of metal, skin care products, a shattered cosmetic compact , a pocket knife, bottles and traces of a camp fire were also found. If both had survived the initial crash it would be unlikely that they would have survived very long without water.

So You Didn’t Get Very Far

Hold your horses testing them bones people, a plane has been discovered near Papua New Guinea and it looks an awfully lot like Amelia Earhart’s Electra. The rust and coral covered plane is in about 250ft of water on a reef near Buka Island, some 800 miles from the main land. Hmm, for 74 years search parties have been searching 2,500 miles away, near Howland Island, where last radio communication with Earhart was received. A diving team is currently being set up to yah or nah the find. Meanwhile tests on finger bone fragments found on Nikumaroro Island have proved inconclusive to belonging to the famed aviator.

Psst Local divers claim there is gold bullion on the plane but a 20ft poisonous sea snake has thwarted attempts to retrieve it. Hmm, a bazooka should fix that!

Amelia Earhart Mystery

Hold onto your deerstalkers loons, the mystery of Amelia Earhart could be solved.A tiny bone fragment, thought to be part of a finger, has been found on the tiny atoll of Nikumaroro in the Pacific along with a woman’s compact,  a 1933 bottle and a pocket knife. Experts believe the bone and the  items found could belong to famed aviator Earhart who went missing during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe in 1937. Her mysterious disappearance sparked an avalanche of theories including she was a spy for Franklin Roosevelt, she was captured by the Japanese and subsequently killed, she was one of the many Toyko Rose’s, she survived the world flight and assumed another identity.Hopefully the DNA will prove once and for all Earhart and her  navigator Fred Noonan became castaways on the tropical island and died some time later, probably from thirst.

Hair Today Thread Tomorrow

You guys!

You guys!

Oh crap, you know that lock of Amelia Earhart’s hair at the Cleveland Museum? Turns out it’s just a friggin thread! Awkward! The discovery was made after a request was made by a group looking for an Earhart hair sample. They wanted  to compare  DNA evidence with samples they hope to find on a Pacific Island where she is believed to have crashed.  Seems that story about a White House maid scabbing the hair out from a wastebasket was bullshit! That Pennsylvania man is probably still snickering after the Smithsonian Institution acquired it from him 20 years ago!

Psst Hmm, the dude that bought a clump of Elvis’ hair might want to do some testing!
