Amelia Earhart May Have Survived Crash-Landing, Newly Discovered Photo Suggests



Quote:
A newly discovered photograph suggests legendary aviator Amelia Earhart, who vanished 80 years ago on a round-the-world flight, survived a crash-landing in the Marshall Islands.

The photo, found in a long-forgotten file in the National Archives, shows a woman who resembles Earhart and a man who appears to be her navigator, Fred Noonan, on a dock. The discovery is featured in a new History channel special, "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence," that airs Sunday.

Independent analysts told History the photo appears legitimate and undoctored. Shawn Henry, former executive assistant director for the FBI and an NBC News analyst, has studied the photo and feels confident it shows the famed pilot and her navigator.

Inconclusive photo. (BTW, is that the Loch Ness monster in the background, way in the distance?)

It's just more speculation about Earhart's disappearance...we may never know for sure.

I prefer pilots who didn't crash.

It's actually far worse if she didn't die in a crash. If this is true, she was likely captured and tortured to death by the Japanese.

Many experts don't agree. Pretty inconclusive photo. I actually think that's Danny Noonan from Caddyshack.

The tone isn't as somber as you would expect. If she was caught by the Japanese, she would've also been raped over and over again. It's actually more of a horror story now.

Sorry if we aren't as somber as you'd prefer over the fate over a women who died a long long time ago.

I watched a little bit of the History Channel show on this last night. Pretty interesting info and conclusions, but as you might imagine, it was pretty one-sided.

Does the History Channel normally have a pro or anti-Earhart bias?

I hope you'll excuse me for saying so, but I'm not going to believe anything until I see a YouTube video from gneiss rocks telling me exactly what happened.

The ship in the documentary is the Koshu Maru, surviving crew member says they were told to look out for Earhart when she went missing, if seen, rescue her. They never saw her or her airplane.
In 1937, Japan didn't want to antagonize the US, they had bigger problems at the time [China and Russia]; the Pueblo incident happened later in the year, the Japanese paid the US for damages. When Charles Lindbergh got lost in fog on his way from Alaska to Japan, he was rescued by the Japanese and treated like a hero. The allegation that the airplane she was flying is being towed on a barge is absurd, the Electra had no intelligence value to the Japanese. When the Japanese wanted advanced American aircraft at that time period, they just bought one or the rights to make one. The DC2 or 3[both technologically superior] were licensed to almost every nation capable of building it, the Japanese copies were called the Shōwa L2D and Nakajima L2D; Fokker built copies for the Germans. Both the Rolls Royce Merlin that powered the Spitfire and the Messerschmidt 109 DB 601 were derived from the US Allison, both planes also used Hamilton Standard variable pitch propellers . Our aircraft industry would sell to anyone, they needed the money.
The picture itself has several problems, Noonan parted his hair from the left and Earhart had shorter hair as shown in the picture from Lae where they last took off. The hairstyle shown wasn't uncommon among Japanese woman of that time period. Another problem is that the photo is not dated

As it turns out this photo was published in Japan in 1935, two years before Earhart was lost.

oops.
