The riddle of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance has only grown more complex in the 73 years since the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic went missing attempting to fly around the equator.

One theory had it that she crashed into the sea after running out of fuel during her expedition over the Pacific Ocean. Others claimed that Earhart was executed by the Japanese for spying, was pressed into making propaganda broadcasts from Tokyo during the war, or that she secretly returned to the US under an assumed identity.

But now an array of artefacts from the 1930s and bones found on the uninhabited Pacific atoll of Nikumaroro suggest that Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, endured lingering deaths as castaways on a desert island and were eventually eaten by crabs.

Researchers from The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (Tighar) found what appears to be a phalanx from a finger and two other bones, one of them from the neck, alongside a host of other clues after two decades and 10 expeditions attempting to solve the mystery.

The suspected finger is being tested for human DNA. It may turn out to be from a turtle

“Finger may point to solution…...”

I’m tempted to make a joke of that.

OK. Here goes.

How dare you say Amelia’s finger “may point to a solution”? My good man, don’t you know proper women of Amelia’s upbringing knew better than be so vulgar as to point?

More likely said finger was displaying an unconscious Freudian gesture mirroring her emotional desire to communicate to the World her love of aviation. This Freudian gesture could only come across as a mirror of the forms of flight found in nature that have captured our imaginations for generations, i.e. giving us “the bird” as it were.

Sorry, that’s my piece of silliness for now.
