    The U.S. govt announced funding last week to help solve Earhart mystery. Why now, not earlier?

    TIGHAR is taking another look at the 1937 photo of landing gear on the reef near Gardner Island, Pacific atoll. It may be from Earhart's Lockheed Electra. Gillespie of UH will try to find the aircraft in July.

    There were also reports at the time of the disappearance by two separate ham radio operators who heard conversation which sounded like Earhart and Noonan clinging to the plane. The conversation was publicized verbatim.  If it was them, Noonan was panicking.

    Why at all there are plenty of poverty stricken people, who could use the financial support.

    It sounds like a distraction of some sort.  Maybe they want the media to focus on this issue more than another.

    That's just my opinion.
