One Too Many
The Real Search
This is of far more interest then the TIGHAR expedition! This group has been working with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the ones that found the Titanic. They have opened all their survey work for any one that is interested. There is another team that will take up where they left off. I would say they are getting closer. This quote will give you an idea why it is so hard to find Amelia and her Electra! "Locating the wreckage of Earhart’s Lockheed Electra is no easy task. The Electra 10E had a 55-foot wingspan, an overall length of 38 feet, seven inches and height of 10 feet, one inch. Most of the Pacific Ocean surrounding Howland Island is extremely deep, up to 18,000 feet in many areas. Also, considering the aircraft was traveling at 150 knots at the last transmission, the potential search area spans approximately 2,000 square miles. By contrast, the RMS Titanic was a massive target over 882 feet long and 175 feet tall with a last reported position broadcast from a stationary ship. The Titanic wreckage was located September 1, 1985 at a depth of 12,500 feet within a search area of roughly 100 square miles." http://searchforamelia.org/
