Earhart Wreckage Discovered in Saipan
« on: March 31, 2013, 10:08:02 PM »

DATELINE - SAIPAN - Partial wreckage from the aircraft flown by famed Aviatrix Emilia Earhart in 1937 on her ill-fated Lost Flight has been discovered on a remote shore of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Island of Saipan.

The announcement was made today including photographic evidence by Dick Gillette, President of the Conservation of Aircraft Technology Symposium.

"What we have before us here today in Saipan is what we like to call the 'Smoking Gun,'” Gillette explained,  “that's to describe something that, well any April fool would understand to be proof of the actuality of an historic event . . . in this case that of the tragic last flight of one of America's true aviation pioneers."

Island local aviation experts and/or enthusiasts have promptly stepped forward and have visually confirmed that the artifact in the photo (below) indeed, “looks like a bolt-for-bolt exact match” of the landing gear of a Lockheed Electra 10E, the Earhart aircraft.   

That Earhart could possibly have wound up on the Island of Saipan, which lies some 2,700 miles from the crew's intended target of tiny Howland Island near the Equator, seemed less clear.

That Earhart and Noonan did indeed find themselves on the militarily strategic island during pre-World War II has been the earnest, now confirmed, surmise of a myriad of Lost Flight aficionados.  It has long been understood on good authority from eye witness accounts that Earhardt, but probably not Noonan, was captured by the at-the-time enemy Japanese military. 

One local observer stated that his personal conviction in confirming the artifact in the photo was derived from the fact that, as a young boy, he had actually constructed a plastic scale-model of the Electra 10E aircraft.  He said he could particularly recall one afternoon after school carefully examining the undercarriage and the landing gear mechanism before dousing the plane with lighter fluid and setting it on fire.  “That was cool,” he sighed, gazing off into the distant breakers.

When confronted with the inconvenient fact that the photo is in reality a blatant, wretchedly poorly electronically manipulated image perpetrating a shameless and disreputable HOAX inelegantly lampooning a significant scientific process and endeavor, Gillette replied, “Ahhhh . . . ahem . . . our investigators have seen what they need in order to begin to draw some very important, ah, conclusions.  Ah, er . . . we have no further comment at this time.”

That was hilarious Dave.
My favorite part:
“He said he could particularly recall one afternoon after school carefully examining the undercarriage and the landing gear mechanism before dousing the plane with lighter fluid and setting it on fire.  “That was cool,” he sighed, gazing off into the distant breakers” LOL

And the Link Marty posted was equally hilarious.
