Don't know what to think about the conclusions in this story but, it's always great to be reminded of a different time in history.

"There are three kinds of men. Those who learn by reading, the few who learn by observation and the rest of them, who just have to pee on that electrical fence for themselves. "

Priceless!

Though we know more now about aviation then we did in 1935, I doubt that anything will ever clear this up. Amelia you ask?

Here is one that happened on this date in history:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TWA_Flight_599

Then, this coming Tuesday will be the anniversary of the C5-A crash in Saigon in 1975. An event that has significant personal connection to my family. Also on Tuesday will be the anniversary of the day in 1943 when the Lady Be Good took off on her fateful mission. A very understandable error that lead to the death of the crew.
