The author and many of her allies used to participate in the Forum when it was conducted via e-mail.

I believe we lost some of them when the Forum was closed to those who were not dues-paying members of TIGHAR.

You may search TIGHAR for their names.

Search result for "Carol Dow."

Carol is a piece of work. There's an on-going debate about cause and effect. Does the Earhart mystery attract nut cases or does puzzling over the mystery make you crazy?

.....to which one?  ;D

You are asking nature or nurture?   I belive it is both.

At any rate, my friends agree, "He is hopeless case."

For all I know, Carol Dows arguments were made in good faith and she just might be a brilliant aviator, however, her provocative posting in the forum on 1 January 1999,
"How does one become an Earhart Scholar?" fits the profile of a troll.

Quoting Dow in her post "I happen to be a Bonanza Pilot and have some time behind the controls, and I well know what it is to have sweat on your face and a look of fear in you fear in your eyes. Any pilot who was in the predicament AE was in would  have doubled back and headed for the island chain they just flew over." 

Those comments just do not sound like something that any experienced aviator that I know would say. Generally speaking, the more experience that you accumulate in flying, the less boasting and bragging that is done especially if one has made it through a few scrapes.

You're all wrong - there is, however, a direct correlation with how many times you've viewed Monty Python and the Holy Grail ...

If you ask me it is a little of both. But you all need to be honest about this. With all the theories out there about the crash of AE it is gonna happen, your are going to get the "crazies". Both people and the state of mind yourself. It is sad really because most people label even the "stable" ones as nut jobs. When all we want to know is the truth.

Her Pilot's License needed to be yanked if she thought Niku was 600 miles away from Howland instead of about 300.  And if AE was south of Howland when she turn on the LOP even less.  She 'shoots herself in the foot' on the first line!  Wonder how many times she got lost with navigation skills like that?  Maybe she feel a connection to AE because she gets lost regularly?

I haven't read Carol Dow's book, but in her defense, she does not describe herself as a competent pilot. See Paragraph 3, I think, in this piece. Carol Dow. I am doing this as much to practice inserting links as to providing any pertinent information.

It (inserting links) takes a bit of practice, David.  Even Ric's links have to be surrepticiously corrected by He Who Must Be Obeyed sometimes.  ;)    For this one, you clipped off the last two characters of the URL so the link doesn't work properly.  You (as the author) can fix that by editing your posting and inserting the last two letters ("ml") that belong at the end of the URL.   

Oh, as soon as I posted this originally, I found your follow-up post with a corrected link.
