The Legend of Amelia Earhart

An interesting post on The National Air and Space Museum blog on the many theories surrounding Amelia Earhart’s disappearance.

Personally, I hope a definitive answer isn’t found. Not every mystery needs to be solved.

    It’s not blasphemy! It’s an appreciation of the mystery and the romance of her disappearance. But you still get big money for being the first ever commenter.

    If I was the one missing, I’d want people to keep looking and remembering.
    If they ditched, and Earhart was any kind of good pilot, that plane is still out there, probably in one piece and in deep water, where it would be preserved. I can’t think of a better way to memorialize her than putting the Lockheed on display in a museum.

      I don’t think there’s any danger of Earhart being forgotten, but I understand your point, Mike. Though I’m not sure how feasible raising the plane might be — somewhere this weekend I read a piece about the Titantic and the bacteria that are slowly eating away at the hull.
