My question is how/why did Elgen Long have Itasca radio dispatches?  I thought those would be at Purdue, or in an archive somewhere?

From The Daily Beast article:
"... (a) book by Joe Klaas that claimed Amelia Earhart was alive and living in Monroe, New Jersey, as Mrs. Guy Bolam: Her life had been bartered by Japan so Emperor Hirohito would not be tried as a war criminal. A photo of Amelia in a kimono was included as part of Klaas's evidence, captioned: 'Amelia Earhart being served in a Japanese tearoom.' "

Watched the episode and enjoyed it. Of all the "mystery" shows I think the Expedition Unknown crew tries to portray an honest discussion of the topics (and seldom seriously delves into the paranormal, aliens, and conspiracy theories). I am wondering how any of the crash/explosion debris could be under those large rocks. You'd think that the engine would just be laying other there somewhere unless it sunk into the muck. I wish I had some time to come help. This sounds like quite the adventure!
Good luck,
Don...

I believe Denise let a bit of sarcasm slip through with her description of the kimono. Visit the link for a more appropriate description of it, and the other items. Quite interesting! But I won't be bidding just yet......

I wonder if any of the conspiracy wackadoodles ever Questioned how her kimono got back to the United States.

Looks like we'll need extra immersion suits with hoods and face masks.  :)

Here is hoping that the magnetic anomalies pan out to be something when you can finally investigate them all.

We'll check them, but I don't have much confidence in them. The survey was flown with the sensor 5 meters over the water surface and the transects were 5 meters apart.  That's not tight enough to see something as small as an engine in a magnetic environment that active.  When the survey company gave us their final report they had changed their mind about the location of the anomalies, and when we had the geologists at Memorial University in St. John's review the data they were pretty dubious.
The bottom line is magnetometry is just not a good way to search that pond.  Sonar is not practical because the pond is too shallow.  It's down to Mark One Eyeball and hand-held pulse induction metal detectors.

I caught the rebroadcast of the show last night and thought it was very well done with minimal "drama" added. It was good to see you Ric, having not had the chance since 2015! Here is hoping that the magnetic anomalies pan out to be something when you can finally investigate them all.

Don - Sorry for your loss.  Thank you for the nice recap about your father's service.  Always nice to hear another story about the greatest generation.
