To me the Earhart search is great. Not that I care for Earhart but I am interested in navigation. There are a large number of web sites and blogs the discuss navigation ie. sunrise LOP, DR, sighting lights at sea, etc. Gary LaPook has a great web site about Fred Noonan and that lady pilot. Nav regulations, charts, old Air Corps books, etc. are available for download. Even the dumb ( IMHO ) TIGAR site has great info.
I flew in the Pacific during my C-141 days and finding small islands like Canton using sextant and Loran was a challange.The Earhart search is a good exercise for an old landlubber.
