Time for a new History Channel special.

He's 99% sure it's her. Of course, his theory is based on measurements of bones, which no longer exist.

This is not directed at you Fitz but enough already with Amelia Earhart. How many movies and documentaries have we already had about her? I've lost count.

And when you objectively look at it, she's not even a very important historical figure.

The last series I watched about her a couple years back was just like every other freaking "discovery" type reality TV crap.

Oh, we have three weeks (just an example) to do some diving and exploring of uncharted islands...but the water is too rough or cloudy to dive...or, we damaged some equipment so we're SOL...

It's about like that Oak Island show that's been on for what seems like 10 years (because all it does is drags), and every year they get close to something...but something messes up...so wait for next season. Bleh.

There's other evidence too - some navigation equipment known to be carried by the navigator.

Sounds like she came to a miserable end frown

Yep. I think she and Noonan died on Gardner island and those bones were indeed hers.

" Amelia Earhart found again."

Can we stop losing her?

Earhart has turned into another "Al Capone's vault". I'm surprised Geraldo Rivera hasn't hosted an Amelia Earhart special yet.

At this point she has fewer secrets to reveal than Victoria...

Yeah...never watched that show but I remember it from "In Search Of" In Search Of - The Money Pit

I loved that show as a kid. About the only thing that was ever possibly "legit" from that show was the one about the Coral Castle. That one is still an interesting mystery.

I watched a couple episodes of Curse of Oak Island. Repitive them finding “ interesting” clues that wind up going nowhere. Got boring quickly.



I’ve been to Coral Castle. Pretty impressive building by one man.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.
