This is fascinating reading. It's a little lengthy to quote here, but this CNN story gives tantalizing details that indicate we might finally have discovered what happened to her. The thing that interests me most is the cavalier treatment given back then to people who offered up clues, such as radio messages they believe they received from Earhart. But that sounds typical for the time. The Titanic didn't have a lookout on-deck, and after the collision they didn't have nearly enough lifeboats, because they were so confident the ship could not be sunk. And at Pearl Harbor, the lone guy who reported radar contacts was told it was probably nothing important.
