2019  Jan 21.

Beware!  The travel channel has a special 'mysteries at the museum' episode coming up in the next 3 days (Pacific time).  Something about, if you can believe it, "Is Earhart alive?"

I didn't know where else to put this warning so here it is. Please move as you think best.  This show has such lengthy intros and out-tros that recording it and fast forwarding through it might yield 10 or 15 minutes of actual nonsense on topic.  If she's alive we might ask her where the plane is . . .

Moved to its own thread.

The old thread was about some show in 2017.

If AE was born in 1897, she would be ... uh ... around 121 years old.

Not totally impossible, I suppose. 

Not very likely, in my view.

Well, it's pretty clear that I didn't create "the correct thread."

Now I've hooked it up to Ric's thread and changed the title to incorporate all the relevant information--I hope!

Not me.  Of course, I have all kinds of excuses, but even if I were in a house with the Travel Channel on the TVs, I would not have tuned it in. 

Some people might say that I don't have an open mind.  They would be right.  More power to them!

“Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.”

I recorded and watched the Travel Channel Documentary.

I thought it was well conceived, because it didn't subscribe to any particular theory, but shared most of them and let the viewer decide.

I worked with Linda Finch in Hawaii during her "round-the-world" flight in the mid 90's. She used our FBO for her Electra, and I actually worked on the Starboard engine. That...was the beginning of my passion for the Search for Amelia.

I came into the room where my wife had it on. I had overheard the television and correctly guessed what she was watching. Saw 7-10 seconds of it and explained to my wife that Amelia would be 121 years old, so "NO" she wasn't alive. Exited the room.

Just to let everybody know, we've stopped doing debates, come-one-come-all symposiums, or participating in TV shows or podcast series that present multiple solutions to the Earhart mystery.  They create a false equivalency that only exploits and perpetuates poor methodology and misinformation.
