"No one knew [after the plane disappeared], and to this day no one knows, what emergency equipment was aboard the plane when it left Lae. An army inventory taken of the Electra in Hawaii after the crash that ended the first attempt to fly to Howland included life preserver vests but not a boat. Dowell acknowledged that the plane’s 'normal radio power supply was so located that it would not have been used with plane on the water.' But he also stated as 'known fact' that 'the plane was equipped with an orange box kite to be flown as distress signal, and by means of which an emergency antenna might be carried to a moderate height'" (Finding Amelia, p.242).
