    That was a really good documentary from the History Channel. I sure miss that part of t.v. Thanks Bill.

    I'd like to add that after having watched that documentary, taking into account the experts and the eyewitness testimony, I believe that photo was of Amelia and her navigator and whoever debunked it was either lying about the date deliberately or believed it out of manipulated ignorance.

    I believe she did die on that island.

    And to add more controversy or a definitive answer to the discussion about the photo claiming to show Earhart and Noonan on the dock at Jaluit Atoll in the Marshall Islands, see the article and links below.


    Amelia Earhart mystery: Photo appears taken 2 years before pilot vanished

    Quote:
    "Kota Yamano, a Japanese military history blogger, was skeptical about the photo as well. Shortly after learning about it, he searched the term "Jaluit" in the National Diet Library and quickly found the photo in a 1935 book. The whole thing took about 30 minutes..."

    "The book is shown in a digital photo in Japan's National Diet Library, the country's largest collection of books. The site says it is from Showa 10, the 10th year of the Showa emperor, also known as 1935." See the "Date of Publication" at the link below.
