Science Channel, “Conspiracies Decoded”
« on: December 14, 2020, 08:58:06 AM »

The website mentions an upcoming episode on AE’s disappearance but has not released a date yet, the blurb is not especially encouraging
“  Also this season, a possible conclusion to the decades long mystery behind the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. While many believe Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan were shot down in Japanese waters during their flight, new analysis and the re-discovery of human remains found on a Pacific Island suggest it’s possible to piece together Earhart’s final days, painting a much different story than what’s in the history books.”

This sounds like it might be about the National Geographic fragmented skull bullshit.

I don't think Nat Geo would be sharing anything they developed with Science Channel or Discovery, so whatever it is, it is probably some other theory or source.

I found remains just yesterday via Google Earth that I'm sure are hers.....

"While many believe Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan were shot down..." -well I do recall hearing that as a proposed theory, but what quantity of people have to subscribe to a theory to qualify as "many"?

Oh well- more stirring of the pot I guess!

As we all know, Amelia was going to spy on the Japanese. That is why she:
   1) Planned a route that crossed the Pacific such that it avoided Japan and Japanese 1930's expansion into China and Indochina.
   2) Used a southern route that took the flight over the immensely spread out Japan Mandated territory of 1920 that could more easily have been surveyed by ship and would have been impossible to cover in 100 aircraft over-flights.
   3) Flew the southern route Pacific area in one leg so half of the flight time would be in the dark when they couldn't see anything below anyway.
   4) Covered over the one window in the aircraft before she left Miami that might have been even remotely useful for photography.
   5) Didn't carry any extensive map set for pinpointing and documenting exact locations of anything they might see.
   6) Didn't train extensively in use of her radio directional aids that would be helpful in finding fixed radio stations near Japanese installations.
   7) Didn't carry Morse Code transmitting equipment which has greater transmitting range to communicate findings.
   8 ) Didn't train in sending Morse Code which would have been useful for sending encrypted messages with discovered information.

Look up the definitions of facetious and sarcasm.

Very well said, James.

Everyone should memorize this and feed it back to those who espouse this bogus theory.

This is the first I've read that "shot down" was part of the Japanese Capture theory, since that theory postulates that they were captured alive, held for a time and killed later. Surviving being shot down renders the theory even more unlikely than it already is. Japanese Capture is a seductive theory when one is not in possession of the facts -- as is Crashed and Sank.

Some of you may have read Robert Heinlein's theorizing on that same subject (pilot surviving being shot down) with reference to Gary Powers and his U-2. RAH thought there had been a forced landing due to mechanical failure, rather than the shoot-down the Soviets claimed (and the USA let stand as the acknowledged cause).

LTM,
Don
