Part one of my interview with author Mike Campbell, a researcher who has written the definitive book about Amelia Earhart’s disappearance “Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last” and also writes a blog at earharttruth.com that contains articles full of pictures and reference materials about Earhart and her final flight. We discuss Amelia Earhart’s flying career and how she got to the point where she attempted her fateful flight in 1937, a world record attempt to fly around the globe.
We then get into the evidence that exists of what became to Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan after they took off from Lae, New Guinea and disappeared according to the mainstream account. These include witnesses who saw Earhart come down near Mili Atoll in the Marshall Islands, witnesses on Saipan which had been occupied by the Japanese until the end of World War II and where Earhart was said by witnesses to have kept as a prisoner, and military personnel involved in the U.S. takeover of Saipan in 1944 who saw evidence of Earhart’s presence on Saipan including seeing her plane which was destroyed by the U.S. military and her briefcase and other personal effects.
Part two of this series examines other ideas that continue to be propagated by the mainstream media of what happened to Earhart and Noonan and will be released next Monday. Mike Campbell and I talk about the crash-and-sank theory and the Nikumaroro or Gardner Island theory both of which have been thoroughly debunked as well as the recent History documentary about a photo that is alleged to depict Earhart and Noonan on a dock in Saipan that was apparently recently discovered.
