    Those 777 pieces were removed from aircraft and then dumped into ocean so as to mislead people from the real thing---that 777 was flown west and landed in Somlia, Yeman, Ethiopia-------

    The picture was taken TWO years before her attempted flight.

    how many times have they found her ? last time they survived for a few months . i dont really think we will ever know unless they find that plane . which is doubtful since they have no idea where it went down. flying into that huge storm would have put her hundreds of miles off course plus she would have been burning way more fuel than thought .if she had made it the world would have known 50 years ago .

    And any military commander would have been court martialed for allowing "her" plane to be thrown on the scrap heap and burned. There are too many of us old farts around to dispute obvious BS when we see or hear it and we haven't been "indoctrinated" either like so many of the young-uns have.
    Word to the wise: I would think twice about posting something controversial that hasn't or can't be proven and from dubious source(s). Or as Fletcher said in The Outlaw Josey Wales " Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining."
    I have followed Amelia's story since I was in grade school and that was in the 50's.

    I was thinking more that Ryan was getting into the arena of trying to make a point when the opposition is willing to continue the discussion simply because they enjoy the exercise. My analogy, which some seem not to care for so much, is that after arguing with a pig rolling around in the mud, after a while one realizes that the pig simply likes the mud, and will say anything to prolong the romp. There is no other way for Ryan to end the discussion than to say, "I'm done."

    I've stayed off this thread, 'cause I simply don't care about a lost plane & crew from "back in the day".. But I'd be curious as to your opinion, if you've a mind to.

    If it takes rolling around in the mud to get to the truth, then so be it, but I will not be intimidated, bullied or BS'ed by somebody half my age or you either. Like I said "don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining."

    that area of the ocean is vast and treacherous . in 1930's there was no navigation on planes other than site or sexton . with the storms she was flying into her fuel consumption would be way high and the crosswinds would have pushed her off course . she is said to have 4.5 hr of fuel left when she should circle back . i dont see her chances of turning into the storm and finding land . i watched the same show and the conclusion was really nothing. they found nothing. talked with an 90 year old woman and some old guy recalling what his dad had said. i would think in all these years some kind of proof would have come out of japan or our own military about her. the pacific is full of planes with empty fuel tanks.

    And Howland Island is a spot in the middle of the ocean and if you haven't been on the ocean you have no idea.

    Who is bullying you or BSing? I gave links to places that showed facts through research they have done for 20-30 years. If you have been following this story for 50 years, than you would have already knew that. I opted to be done because I could see that nothing anyone would say would change your mind and I could care less as I was just sharing it in case others hadn't seen it. Then Jerry comes in here talking about how "someone" unbolted parts off of a 777 and that that plane really landed some where else and wasn't truly lost. There's no arguing with someone who's mind is made up. Even if I am half your age it doesn't mean I'm stupid so don't treat people like they are. You have your mind made up what happened to her. Great. To me it is still unsolved. And why don't you contact those Marines and tell them their interviews are BS!

    The video is here and their interviews are towards the end.
