This book analyzes what might have happened to Amelia Earhart and Frederick Noonan in July 1937. It presents all the facts we know and compares them to proposed theories. It analyzes her World Flight, her final flight, and details all of the facts that we have to define what probably happened to her. It defines a reasonable scenario of what probably happened and shows how facts are associated. It also shows why the US Military search did not find her in the face of many clues to where she was. The book separately handles facts and theories on Amelia Earhart's having come down in Japanese-held territory, showing the facts actually point to a completely different (although associated) event. The facts show that the US Military could have used Earhart's final flight to cover one of their own. It also points out that the US Military's search was far from comprehensive and that she might have been rescued if the US Coast Guard cutter in the area had acted fast enough. Along with an analysis, it presents a set of tables of calculated data based on previous flights in her Electra. It shows an hour-by-hour analysis of the Electra's status, including position, fuel used, aircraft weight, etc. It shows the status of the aircraft when Earhart sent her radio messages. It includes a table of distances between many sites in the Pacific area, an analysis of all the Electra's previous legs in the World Flight, tide data, and It compares data from a similar flight to Earhart's last. The tables were calculated using high precision mathematics and all data is given, ensuring anyone can calculate figures for themselves. Although it does not define precisely were to find Earhart and her aircraft, it does explain why no one has yet found them and where to look. Happy hunting!
