    Gosh, it's about 300 miles from Howland to Nikumaroro. Could they have made it that far? From what I've read they didn't have a lot of fuel left when they arrived at Noonan's sunline through Howland. Then they spent a fair amount of time tracking back and forth along it searching.

    I have attached the ONE high resolution photo shown of the "debris field" on the TV show and available on the TIGHAR website.

    Here are some of the comments I posted on the TIGHAR forum:

    "I made the same point earlier. Let's see the frames before and after the posted frame.  Other frames should show the objects from other angles and make it possible to discern whether what is indicated in the one posted frame are natural or man-made. Being a lawyer, I get suspicious when a party doesn't produce stronger evidence (such as views from different sides and aspects) that should help his case and instead offers weaker evidence (like just one image.) So in this case, as in the Betty notebook case, I'm still sticking with standard jury instruction 203."


    I invite everyone to read the comments about this claim on the TIGHAR forum at:


    The entire forum is also interesting at:


    I have posted over 1400 messages there in the last year, only one person has posted more and he is the administrator and he has been posting for three years.
