  1. Lots of “news” about the fate of AE in the South Pacific. What do you think about the photo controversy and latest theories of her imprisoonment by the Japanese?


    1. The theories include the recent History channel publicizing the “captured” with death as prisoner, and there has long been the approach of Ric Gillespie an the notion that she landed on a small atoll and castaway. The research is fascinating. There are problems and critics of all. The sad truth might be she smiply ran out of fuel and ditched in the ocean. Any road, she lead an inspirational life.
