Are you absolutley sure that the "Electra" of Papua New Guinea isn't "THE ELECTRA"?
The New Britain jungle-Electra of the Aussies an old story, as we know. Never believed it. (Distance!!!)

If you don't believe the New Britain jungle airplane can be the Electra because of distance, why would you wonder about the Papua New Guinea airplane which is even further away from Earhart's last known position?

You're right, Ric, but I never said I could imagine that the Papua New Guinea-Electra is the right one. The distance is too far and there could have been no radio messages after the crash if it was in deep water. (And I'm sure there were distress-calls coming from AE) I only wanted to know just your opinion, because you know a little bit more about the subject.  :D
If we would hear a clear message from Papua officials that it wasn't AE plane, we could stop thinking about for good.
