Description

On July 2nd 1937 Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan vanished into the South Pacific, presumed dead. Years of speculation surrounding the official version of their disappearance have provided no satisfactory answers to the mystery. Randall Brink, a pilot experienced in the ways of Washington bureaucracy was determined the answers lay somewhere in classified military and government files. This book is the result of ten years of research. Brink's search involved many dead-ends, suits against the US government, interviews with witnesses willing to talk for the first time, and expeditions into the equatorial islands of the Pacific. The author has pieced together the solution to the mystery from previously classified documents. Using his aviation background to reinterpret photos and technical data previously misunderstood, Brink reveals the Roosevelt administration's plan to turn Earhart's last flight into an espionage mission.show more
