Didn't the "white bird hauled 1974" discussion previously in this group address that?

Re-reading the TIGHAR Tracks article it seems that several people claimed to have seen the show but nobody could find a reference to it anywhere.  That's the problem with anecdotal recollections.  You never know whether somebody is remembering something correctly. It may be that there was a show that made that claim but it is certainly not true that the White Bird's engine was ever hauled out of the woods and identified.

There are no documents relating to Maine.  That was the problem with Maine.  No documents, just stories. 
We have thousands of photographs from our expeditions in Maine.

Post the transcript of the letter so that I can check to make sure you got it right.

Seeing as how the original subject of this thread was the fate of the artifact TIGHAR found in Canada, can we get back to that?

If Capt. Andy is so enthusiastic about plowing through all the White Bird materials that TIGHAR has amassed, perhaps Ric could make the materials available for a day so Andy could dive in to his heart's content.

You're correct that this thread has strayed far from its original topic - so far that you have forgotten that the "stick" you referred to when starting this thread was found in Maine, not Canada. I love Maine and I'll always treasure the time we spent in Machias and the Round Lake Hills. It's where we learned our trade.   But after many years and many expeditions in Maine we decided that there is no reason to think the White Bird was ever there.   

If Capt. Andy is so enthusiastic about plowing through all the White Bird materials that TIGHAR has amassed, perhaps Ric could make the materials available for a day so Andy could dive in to his heart's content.

If Andy or you or anyone else disagrees with our conclusion that Newfoundland, not Maine, is where we should focus our efforts, and if you're willing to pick up that thread and re-test the Maine Hypothesis with real research at your own expense, I'll be happy to do as you suggest - but I don't have time to indulge idle curiosity or posturing for the sake of appearing thorough.

Because the topic of this thread is an artifact which does not appear to have any bearing on the disappearance of the White Bird I'm going to lock the topic.  Feel free to start another topic that relates to TIGHAR's investigations in Newfoundland.
