Earhart Project Bulletin #74

2-2-V-1As detailed in The Window, The Patch, and The Artifact, Project Bulletin #73, TIGHAR research has, to a high degree of certainty, identified a piece of aircraft debris found on Nikumaroro in 1991 as the patch installed on Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Electra Model 10E Special during her stop in Miami at the beginning of her second world flight attempt. Earhart researcher and author Elgen Long disagrees. He has publicly asserted that the artifact is a perfect match to an area on the upper wing surface of a Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina. Is TIGHAR Artifact 2-2-V-1 from a PBY?
