The drop tank looks like it could be from a Zero. 

Here are a couple of photos and the links where I found them.

Website Inaction?   Earlier this week we added The Glenn Miller Project to the TIGHAR website. On the day you posted this question, 830 people visited the TIGHAR website.  300 people have visited the website so far today, and it's 9:30 in the morning.

There is lots of traffic in the background year 'round.

. . . and that tube coming out at 90 degrees at the bottom of the first picture could be the fuel line.

Yep.

Good job Bill.

The fairing on the Hellcat belly tank looks right.
The tank also appears to have a detachable nose cap that might be the open hole in the second photo.

Belly tank from P-38 or F-6F?

Too skinny and that fairing with lightening holes looks like a permanent installation.  How about the radar pod from a P-38M night fighter?  A few serve in the Pacific before the introduction of the P-63 Black Widow.

About once a week somebody in New Guinea finds a piece of Earhart's plane.

"A Engine part believed to be of Amelia Earhart's aircraft, have found ( location, Papua New Guinea.) The engine part No:325. Photographs attached below.
Please confirm it ,and hence need your response as soon as possible."

 Anybody have an idea what his might actually be?

Is TIGHAR dead in the water?

You seem to be judging TIGHAR solely by activity on this Forum.  The Forum is a power-house research tool that we call on as the need arises.  In August, research by Forum members caused us to change the post-loss radio messages reported by Nina Paxton from "credible" to " not credible."  Last month the Forum produced information that eliminated the missing French sailor as the castaway whose remains were found on Gardner Island.  If we haven't needed to call on the Forum in the last couple weeks it does not mean that TIGHAR is "dead in the water."

This year, so far, we have published four full-size issues of TIGHAR Tracks containing five major research papers - more than in any year since the organization's founding. We're currently working on another issue of Tracks to be published in late November or early December.

Website Inaction?   Earlier this week we added The Glenn Miller Project to the TIGHAR website. On the day you posted this question, 830 people visited the TIGHAR website.  300 people have visited the website so far today, and it's 9:30 in the morning.

 TIGHAR's Facebook page now has over 8,800 followers.  The last two postings have, so far, reached 5,523 and 3,235 respectively.

We've just launched a campaign to raise $25,000 for a Glenn Miller Project research expedition to England in December.  Please go to https://tighar.wisdomfilters.com and make a donation.
