Thanks for the welcome, Ric.  Will I be assigned a Tighar researcher number?  Perhaps I already have been and am not aware of it.  Also, I presume I will now receive the 2015 Tighar Tracks, which I would prefer in PDF.  I'll be glad to assist in anyway that may be useful to Tighar, although I have no aviation background.  Thanks.

Yes. You'll even receive a cheap-ass card board membership card.  We'd really like to do fancy plastic cards like the EAA but the machines cost a thousand bucks.

All will be revealed.

  Also, I presume I will now receive the 2015 Tighar Tracks, which I would prefer in PDF.

Bless you.  Send me an email at ric@tighar.org and I'll send you the link to the PDF.

No problem.  Sometimes an aviation background seems to be a detriment.

I am not really interested in the ultimate fate of miss Earhart. I simply do not care about her fate. She is dead, so let her be dead in peace respectfully. But I often find many errors about the islands discussed regarding her. Therefor I suggest https://www.scribd.com/doc/294530963/The-Nantucket-Connection.
I do not like the modern tendency/fact that people are so gullible and eager to believe wikipedia stories. My essay shows that even writers of old can be mistaken...i.e..: are mistaken quite often.

Hi Everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself here ...
My name is Ryan Carrier, I've always been compelled and intrigued by mystery..
The Earhart legend has always interested me and have been following TIGHAR research and resources for a while behind the scenes, and now thought it was just time to step forward and join the circle ..

Much respect for this organization and its members for their dedication, presented resources and findings and determination for resolve.

Cheers!

My name is Douglas and I am from Toronto, Canada. I have always been interested in mysteries like the Earhart disappearance and am impressed with the work that Tighar has done.

I would like to help out if I can, in the way of networking, potential fund raising and social media.

Amelia's Toronto connection is kind of special as it was here where she really first got the flying bug.

Hello ,
Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Tom Snider and I have had a lifelong interest in Amelia Earhart. I have joined TIGHAR and want to be involved as much as possible.
 My experience that may be of value other than my passion is that I have extensive metal detecting experience dating back to over 25 years ago from local colonial sites to battlefields. The amazing clues and history that can be uncovered are endless. I look forward to all interaction and wish to be involved with an expedition.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
Thank you
Tom Snider

Hello, my name is ‘Tree’ and I am looking forward to learning more about her fate.
I crewed on Mira Nair’s movie AMELIA doing camera work , mostly the scenes of the Vega landing in Ireland and the Fokker floatplane in Newfoundland and Wales. ( all were shot here in Nova Scotia ).

In 1976 the Electra 10E # 1042 was in Zephyrhills , I was lucky to make ten skydives from it with a helmet camera. ( The reason people here post that it was gutted is because most jump planes were stripped before our big boots put dents in the airframe , that was often standard procedure at the large drop zones. )

Lately I am helping to restore a 1950s RCN Beech 18 Expeditor at our Shearwater naval museum. ( It was also abused as a jump ship . . .  lots of dents to smooth out lol ). Work there as a volunteer machinist / trying to fix more than I break.  Some days we even succeed
