    It looks like they finally figured it out.

    As usual the CSM is a day late and a dollar short. The same recovery group claimed that a piece of aircraft metal was definitely from Earhart's plane and later it was proved that it was from different plane. Scraping tools and bird bones prove nothing.

    Interesting theory. Now, if they find the plane or whatever's left of it in the nearby waters...

    It is an interesting story.

    Did they not also find remains on that atoll??

    If so I wonder if there is any way to prove the remains are either Earhart or Noonan??

    It's interesting...and I love mysteries like this.
    It's too bad she never was able to complete her quest...of course, if she had, we wouldn't be reading stories such as this.

    Thats probably just what happened.

    Earhart and the drunk co-pilot missed Howland Island just barely (heartbreaking when you think about it) , got dis-oriented, ran out of fuel, made a forced landing on an atoll, survived for a while , then died of malnutrition.

    End of story.

    There Is nothing new,these stories by TIGHAR finding Amilia Earhast is not definitely,true at all. do you know how long this story and old it is? we are still in 1937,no proof of Amilia . but I did read on facebook ,someone stated there is a new piece of the puzzle, the first in 76, years, I myself think she had a plan,she did not die in 1937, you might like to read, a man who states he found the plane by David BILLINGS, very intreating reading

    That article is over a year old, but it's a great story. I've been keeping track of the visits to the atoll for several years and it looks like this is the best theory to what happened to her.
