Amelia Earhart reality check: The Japanese helped the U.S. look for the famed aviator
On July 5, 1937, as the United States was searching the Pacific Ocean for Amelia Earhart’s missing airplane, the State Department got a phone call from the Japanese Embassy in Washington.

Tokyo, the embassy said, wanted to know whether it could help out. Relations between the two countries had been deteriorating since Japan had attacked China in 1931, and were destined to end up with the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor and the calamity of World War II.

But Greg Bradsher, senior archivist at the National Archives, noted in a new blog post that the Earhart tragedy offered both countries a brief moment of cordiality, which each hoped might lead to better relations.

They may have found her plane, and this time TIGHAR isn't involved, LOL. If it's true this time, looks like she likely died in the crash. So much for the Saipan story, and all the other theories.


Wreckage off the coast off Buka Island, Papua New Guinea, may offer a vital clue to the decades-long mystery, according to investigators from Project Blue Angel. The Project’s members have been studying the site for 13 years and say that wreckage off Buka Island could be from Earhart’s Lockheed Electra 10E.
