I'd probably have better luck spotting Nessie.

Ancient Aliens teamed up with Big Foot to hide all evidence of the plane :alien:

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

Love the Earhart mystery ever since my parent told me stories of her landing in a village near by in (south) Wales...

She may have lived for years on one of those pacific islands. You would assume considering her career that she would oh had at least some survival knowledge.

If the island had a source of fresh water, it's perfecty feasable.

It's sobering to think that Glen Miller's plane went down in the English Channel, a much, much smaller body of water, yet has never been found.

This assumes she survived the crash without being seriously injured.

Its a pity its too expensive and complex to haul special cameras and high resolution cameras over the entire sea bed. I think a lot of mysteries would be solved plus a few more discovered. As for how long the aluminium would last in salt water I don't know. Engines would last longer I would have thought. To be quite honest I reckon the only thing that would be left of that plane now would be the window glass and teeth. However, whilst writing this I found myself wondering if the US military had already covered the area with radar and cameras and won't say anything to keep what they have a secret.

If the rivet pattern matches, It would surely be from her aircraft. But where is the rest of the plane? I mean maybe this was a piece that broke loose during a water landing, then washed ashore.

Those that mistake my meekness for weakness, suddenly find themselves destroyed.

I would think other parts of the plane could be found in surrounding waters, but it's been allot of years.   I think if the rivet pattern matched, then paired with other evidence found on the island, we could safely declare this island the last place Emilia lived.

Guess those TIGHAR guys are about to launch another funding push.

No, really, we're gonna find her THIS time.
