Results: Solved. Since the segment, most of the craft and partial remains of the craft was located in the thick Maine wilderness on November 13, 2011. An analysis reveals that the pilots ran out of fuel and were forced to crash the plane.
What happened November 13, 2011? Any information?
I'm pretty skeptical. Right now I'm reading a new book published in 2012, "Atlantic Fever" by Joe Jackson. (Which I recommend, by the way.) In the Nungesser section it says:
1. There are witness accounts saying that at the time the White Bird was leaving Newfoundland, over water, a bootlegger's rum boat in heavy fog heard an airplane overhead and feared it was US Treasury agents. They fired their guns blindly upward toward the sound, and heard a loud "bang".
2. Coming down in the water is somewhat corroborated by a recently discovered Coast Guard message from 8/18/1927 saying that remains of a "white aircraft" were spotted roughly 200 miles off New York. That is approximately where it could have drifted in the prevailing currents.
I can offer no opinion as to whether any of that is true, but my point is that this 2012 book mentions some "recent" findings but says nothing about the supposed event in November 2011 or the mystery being "solved".
