Dozens of people from around the world heard help from Amelia Earhart and her navigator Freed Noonan Radio after they were dumped in the Pacific Ocean and stranded on a remote island, researchers said.
The International Historical Aircraft Recovery Group (19659004) TIGHAR) assumes that Earhart and Noonan were able to deploy their radio in the crashed Lockheed Electra, also known in recent days on the then abandoned Gardner Island as Nikumaroro, asking for help, the Washington Post reported. 19659005] "I have to get out of here," Earhart said in one passage, according to the newspaper quoting TIGHAR. Research. "We can not stay here long."
A woman in Toronto heard the pilot say, "We have taken water … we can not last much longer."
Earhart and Noonan could only use the radio for a few hours when the tide was low, not to flood the engine while the plane was resting on the island's reef Post
Authorities have asked public help to listen to radio frequencies Earhart on her journey after her disappearance on July 2, 1937 during a flight from Papua New Guinea to Howland Island When It Attempted to Become the First Women (19659009) While most seekers heard nothing, some listeners scattered throughout North America heard Earnhardt's cries for help, The Post reported, citing research from TIGHAR.
The day after the crash, a Kentucky woman claimed she heard the pilot say "KHAQQ's appeal" before she said she was "close to or near a small island at a point". , , and "something about a storm and that the wind blew," according to The Post.
The ancient mystery continues to astonish the scientific community, while some are convinced that Gardner Island is Earharts resting place, suggesting another theory that it ended at Mili Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
As far as the theory of burial is concerned, three human bones were found three years after Earhart's disappearance on the island of Gardner, but their bones were later lost.
Ric Gillespie, Director of TIGHAR, told the Post that the news was sent out over a six-day period, and it is evidence that Earhart and Noonan have died as shipwrecked, instead of the US Navy's claim that they died after the plane crashed somewhere in the Pacific.
"These active vs. silent phases and the fact that the message changes on July 5 and starts worrying about water and then constantly worries about water – there is a story," Gillespie told The Post ,
Four bones sniffing dogs were recently brought to Nikumaroro under an expedition sponsored by TIGHAR and the National Geographic Society.
National Geographic reported on July 7 that the dogs found the spot where Earhart died. However, no bones were found although it was planned to send soil samples from the site for DNA analysis in Germany.
Gillespie also told The Post, he understands he needs more data to support his theory.
