The State Department plans to join a new effort to find the plane of pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart, 75 years after she mysteriously disappeared over the South Pacific.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will take part in a ceremony Tuesday morning announcing the joint public-private search at the State Department, The Wall Street Journal reports. The event, "Amelia Earhart, a Pacific Legacy," which is pitched as a celebration of the U.S.'s pan-Pacific ties, will be streamed live at 9 a.m. on the State Department's website, a spokesman for the agency said.

Earhart's twin-engine Lockheed vanished July 2, 1937, as she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, left New Guinea (now Papua New Guinea) on their way to Howland Island in the South Pacific as part of an attempt to circle the Earth.


The search will center on the Nikumaroro Islands in the South Pacific.
The half-million-dollar search, financed with private funds, will begin in July. The key area is the Pacific atoll of Nikumaroro between Hawaii and Australia, The Journal reports:

A search team will concentrate on the deep waters near Nikumaroro, which was the site of a 2010 search that focused on coral reefs and nearby shallow waters, these people said.

The search will be spearheaded again by the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, which has championed the theory that the renowned female aviator and Fred Noonan, the other crew member on the July 1937 flight, ended up on or near the west coast of the island, formerly called Gardner Island.

We pretty much know now that Earhart landed in a reef near Nikumaroro (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikumaroro). In 1940, a skeleton was found on the deserted island, but unfortunately, after taking measurements of the bones, they mistakenly concluded it couldn't have been her, and the bones were lost. (When modern anthropologists looked at the measurements that were recorded, they concluded it was probably a tall female)

People have also found odd items on that island that appear to have possibly been items on her plane crafted into crude tools. No one knows if her navigator survived the landing, but Earhart probably died on the island, either of starvation, exposure, or maybe even suicide. We don't have definitive proof, but if they could find her plane, that would clinch it.

The shame of it is that a British survey group visited the island to see if it was militarily useful on December 1938. If she could have figured out a way to hang on for a year and a half, she would have been rescued.

Has this been debunked?

Goerner heard other reports that Earhart's plane may have gone down in the Marshall Islands. The Marshall Islands are much closer to Howland than Siapan. U.S. Naval personnel stationed in the area during World War II reported hearing stories from the Islanders that were very similar to those told on Siapan: Two flyers, a man and a woman, crash landed and were taken captive by the Japanese. No proof emerged from these accounts either, though Goerner finally reached the conclusion that Earhart probably crashed in the Marshall Islands and was later held captive on Siapan.

Investigators say they've found key clue to fate of Amelia Earhart

Investigators think they've uncovered a key clue that will lead them to solve the mystery of what happened to legendary aviator Amelia Earhart, who disappeared on a trans-Pacific flight 75 years ago.

Ric Gillespie, executive director of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), said a new enhanced analysis of a photo taken on the Pacific atoll of Nikumaroro, formerly Gardner Island, three months after Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared, may show the landing gear of her Lockheed Electra protruding from a reef.

“We found some really fascinating and compelling evidence," Gillespie said at a news conference in Washington on Tuesday.

“Finding the airplane would be the thing that would make it conclusive,” he said.

Gillespie said the photo was taken by a British survey team in October 1937 and had been seen by Earhart researchers many times. But investigators took a new look at it in 2010 and, when their suspicions were triggered, had the photo checked by U.S. State Department experts. In a blind review, they determined the component in the picture is the landing gear of a Lockheed Electra.

"This is where the airplane went into the drink," Gillespie said.
On July 2, 75 years to the day after Earhart was last heard from, Gillespie will depart Honolulu on a University of Hawaii research vessel to try to find that plane in the deep waters off a flat reef on Nikumaroro.

The privately funded effort will use robotic submarines from Phoenix International, the U.S. Navy's primary contractor for deep ocean search and recovery, to comb the area. The Discovery Channel will film the exploration for a TV presentation, Gillespie said.

Gillespie acknowledged there would be skeptics after his 23 years of searching for Earhart had yet to yield an answer.

“There are some very smart people who think we’re wrong about this, but there are some very smart people who think we’re right about this,” he said.

One Gillespie supporter is Robert Ballard, the explorer who found the Titanic and other deep sea wrecks, who called himself "a ringer" brought in to vet Gillespie's case.

Ballard said he had rejected offers to look for Earhart's plane, thinking the task too difficult.

“If you ever wanted a case of finding a needle in a haystack, this is at the top of the list in deep sea exploration,” he said at the Washington press conference.

Ballard said he did a strict analysis of Gillespie's research and signed off on the science.

"Every time he passed the test," Ballard said. "Clearly the smoking gun was the analysis of that enhanced image."

Earhart and Noonan disappeared while on a flight from New Guinea to Howland Island that summer of 1937. The flat reef off Gardner Island, 300 miles off their course, had been a suspected landing spot. But those suspicions were largely based on speculation.

At Tuesday's press conference, Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell called the disappearance of Earhart "the last great unsolved mystery of the 20th century."

If the mystery is solved this summer, Earhart's aviation trailblazing will have played a part, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said.

"In no small part because of Amelia Earhart our world is smaller," LaHood said. "This very voyage to recover her remains in some ways is doable because of Earhart herself."

“We take a special measure of pride in an expedition that is as enterprising and inspiring as the woman with which it will unite us,” he said.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saluted Earhart's memory, too.

“Her legacy resonates today for anyone girls and boys who dreams about the stars,” Clinton said. “She gave people hope and she inspired them to dream bigger and bolder.”

Earhart is probably nowhere near where they think she should be. She was a woman after all, so she probably had no clue of how to read a map or follow directions. She probably crashed somewhere in the North Atlantic.

BTW, just because private money is being used, doesn't mean it's not costing US money. I read the phrase, "public-private", which means it is costing us tax dollars. No other way to spin it. If it leads to some kind of definitive discovery, it is probably worth it. If it's more bread and circuses to distract us from other things, then not.

Interesting stuff. If you look at the photo in the link, I have no idea how people identify those blobs. I guess there are some angles that can point toward them being manmade, but how do you know that it's not just a TV thrown off a Japanese fishing boat?

http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/19/75-years-later-the-mystery-of-amelia-earhart-solved/?hpt=hp_c2

75 years later, the mystery of Amelia Earhart solved?
Debris discovered in the depths of the South Pacific may be remnants of vanished aviator Amelia Earhart’s plane.

“A review of high-definition underwater video footage taken during the recently-completed Niku VII expedition has revealed a scattering of man-made objects on the reef slope off the west end of Nikumaroro,” The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery reported on its website.

The question researchers are now asking: Do these new images reveal parts of the same plane captured in a 1937 photo of Nikumaroro.

Discovery News reports that the 1937 photo of the island's western shoreline was taken three months after Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared. The shot by British Colonial Service officer Eric R. Bevington, “revealed an apparent man-made protruding object on the left side of the frame.” Forensic analysis of the image “found the mysterious object consistent with the shape and dimension of the upside-down landing gear of Earhart's plane.”

"The Bevington photo shows what appears to be four components of the plane: a strut, a wheel, a wom gear and a fender. In the debris field there appears to be the fender, possibly the wheel and possibly some portions of the strut," TIGHAR forensic imaging specialist Jeff Glickman told Discovery News.

TIGHAR launched the expedition last month, working on a theory that Earhart and Noonan became stranded and ultimately met their deaths on Nikumaroro Island after their Lockheed Electra plane was swept out to sea 75 years ago.

The group’s ninth expedition to the island kicked off with a chorus of excitement and criticism around the Internet. Researchers ultimately returned to the U.S. admitting they had found no obvious signs of the plane.

But new analysis of an underwater debris field may prove the researchers found exactly what they were looking for.

"Early media reports rushed to judgment in saying that the expedition didn't find anything," Ric Gillespie, TIGHAR executive director, told Discovery News. "We had, of course, hoped to see large pieces of aircraft wreckage but as soon as we saw the severe underwater environment at Nikumaroro we knew that we would be looking for debris from an airplane that had been torn to pieces 75 years ago."

Glickman told Discovery News the group has reviewed less than 30% of the high-definition underwater video taken on the recent expedition, which launched July 12 and concluded on July 24.

TIGHAR theorizes that Earhart and Noonan landed on Nikumaroro Island – then called Gardner’s Island – after failing to find a different South Pacific island where they were planning to land. The pair is believed to have landed safely and called for help using the Electra’s radio. And in a twist of fate, the plane was apparently swept out to sea, washing away Earhart and Noonan’s only source of communication. U.S. Navy search planes flew over the island, but not seeing the Electra, passed it by and continued the search elsewhere.

"What makes this the best expedition is the technology we've been able to assemble to search for the wreckage of that airplane," Gillespie told CNN last month. "We have an autonomous vehicle. We have multibeam sonar above the University of Hawaii ship we're on right now. We have a remote-operated vehicle to check out the targets (and a) high-definition camera. We're all set."

Gillespie told Discovery News that if further analysis of the Bevington photo continues to support TIGHAR's theory, the group will seek to recover the objects from the ocean’s depths.

I watched the documentary last night. It was very interesting, but most of the debris that they found was from a british shipwreck of the SS Norwich City. Interestingly, when a few of her radio distress signals were heard, they were interpreted as saying something about "new york city". They also found cosmetics vials, some of which were unique and used by her, a womans shoe, and several other items seen on her in old photos. It is all circumstantial evidence, but put all together, it is pretty compelling.

His nose lined up perfectly too. I've seen plenty of Japanese men with a rather bushy short cut, like seen here. Not sure if it was popular in 1937 though.

The fact that the person is looking at the plane (clearly a plane) convinces me it's them.

It just ended. They definitely milked it to stretch across two hours, but they made a pretty strong case that she was taken prisoner by the Japanese and either died in captivity or was executed. Worth watching.

The most disturbing part is how many people in our own government apparently knew about it, and perhaps even recovered her and Noonan's remains, but never said anything. Perhaps they felt it would needlessly stoke anti-Japanese sentiment after the war. Who knows?

In some article I saw a pretty notable comment. The person said (about the sitting person), "It's a Japanese guy. If you look at the person on his left, they're wearing the same clothing as a uniform." When you look at that, you can flip back and conclude that it's just a Japanese guy who's kind of skinny.

A Japanese military person would not be relaxed dangling their legs off a dock, nor would they have long hair.

I think it's pretty clear based on this informatiom that she survived and landed there. Everything fits and adds up without you having to really make any leaps of faith. Even the reason she was so off track seems incredibly logical and the fact that her own alleged radio message mentions that specific island where the witnesses put her is just too coincidental to not be true.

Haven't seen the program yet so maybe my opinion will change but I'm not so sure.

"Noonan" just looks like some asian dude to me. He was pretty fair-skinned, too. That guy looks like he has darker skin but it could be the lighting/camera I suppose. I think Noonan's head was a little blockier. Hairline doesn't quite match either. Its close but a bit different. I'm not so sure "Amelia" can even see the plane from where she's crouching. Angle of her head makes it look like she's looking directly to her right, too.

This article pretty much debunks the japanese capture:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/amelia-earhart-captured-and-killed-new-evidence-debunks-history-channels-crazy-theory

That article's main theme is to take down the picture link theory. I only was able to get through about half of the show on History Channel last night but I did see enough to know that they have a lot more evidence than just the pic.

But speaking of the pic, they had an expert do a bone structure analysis on Frank Noonan. It matched up. They used an expert to make sure the the pic had not been altered (Re: Photoshopped) and it hadn't been. The even used known specs for that ship to estimate the size of the plane on the back of it and it came out to about 38 feet long. The plane Earhart flew was 38.5 feet.

They also found a strip of rolled metal on the island that was made of aluminum that was likely aircraft. Not to mention the 3 sets of wheels from the carts the Japanese used back then. The wheels are still laying there. Their theory is that the carts were used to transfer the plane to the other side of the island to where they could load it onto the ship.

There were also witnesses on that island that confirm seeing a Caucasian male and female. What makes this writer's witness any more legit than multiple witnesses on the island?

I also like how he uses the claim that the Japanese didn't want to go to war with the US to suggest that they wouldn't harm Earhart. I guess a lot changed in 4 years when they decided to attack Pearl Harbor, huh? The theory is that the Japanese thought she was a spy. That would actually make sense considering what was happening at the time.

That piece is just a bunch of theories, as well. But from what I've seen on the History Channel documentary, it appears that her landing on the Marshall Islands is much more plausible.

After reading all the theories I think the most likely occurence is they crashed in the ocean not far from their destination. She reported being low on fuel 2 hours before her last radio communication. Radio communication & coordinates she voiced put her very very close to Howland Island. This is the major problem with the japanese capture theory:

reporter Fukiko Aoki, who researched and wrote a 1982 book, "Looking for Amelia," located an elderly officer, part of the 1937 crew of the Koshu Maru. He denied the ship's involvement. Aoki read the actual ship's log which showed it as having been 1,500 miles away at the time of Earhart's disappearance. To reach and somehow land on the remote atoll where she purportedly crashed would have required Earhart, though low on fuel, to change her northeast course as she neared Howland Island and instead fly hundreds of miles northwest. Those with a financial interest in promoting alternative and untenable theories about Earhart's fate have an incentive to keep the speculation alive.

The Gardner Island theory doesn't hold up because that island was searched in the immediate aftermath. It's a very small island but no survivors or planes were seen.

The wikipedia page covers all the various theories:

I would hope that the "CONSPIRACY!" people in this thread would learn a valuable lesson from this, but they wont. Dumb and gullible people are eternally dumb and gullible. Their own stupidity conspires against them.
Thanks CNN.

A Japanese military history buff has found library records showing a photo supposedly depicting Amelia Earhart survived a crash landing in 1937 was actually published two years before the famous aviator vanished.

This creates a much bigger mystery now. If Earhart and Noonan were captured in 1935, who were those people flying the plane in 1937?

They should rename their channel Fake History Channel. This might explain why for the most part they stopped broadcasting about History long ago. They suck it it.

This is just like 9/11 with the remote controlled fake planes with no windows and no passengers. :tinfoil:

I always have to laugh when people say History Channel doesn't show history shows. They have been doing a lot of interesting original shows about historical figures or times. Most recently was the two part special on Hamilton. There are plenty of other examples as well. Some shows are just used more often for repeats than others, such as pickers and pawn stars, I assume because they are popular and easily consumed.

That was shown due to the popularity of the NYC play.

So odd they put all this stock in what would always be a disputed photo, even without this new info, as a key piece of evidence when they had much more compelling evidence in the show....
