Let’s break up the posts a bit and start talking about some theories on what happened to Amelia Earhart.  One of the more widely accepted theories is that Earhart landed in the ocean and sank.  At 7:42 a.m. the morning of her disappearance Earhart radioed “We must be on you, but cannot see you—but gas is running low. Have been unable to reach you by radio. We are flying at 1,000 feet.” Many researchers do believe that she ran out of gas before reaching Howland Island.  In fact, British aviation historian Roy Nesbit thinks that Earhart’s plane was not fully fueled at Lae.
