    I transcribed the Cugle´s paragraph of my 1940 edition on your request , upon which you yourself replied that it was deleted after 1934 if I well remember it .


    Yes I do remember, we were discussing Dutton's not Cugle you said:


    "You p.e. have mentioned that the paragraph on sunrise fix for aircraft has been deleted from ´Dutton´ since 1934 . F,"


    see his TIGHAR post here:

    I responded:


    "1. There never was a "sunrise" paragraph in any edition of Dutton, you only cited to a sentence within one paragraph that you found in the 1928 edition that recommended using a marine sextant, nothing about a "sunrise" fix and this sentence was removed from the 1934 and subsequent editions."


    See my post:

    That the 0718 GMT fixed coordinates are for Nukumanu is nonsense , the listings for the island are 159-30-E / 04-33-S , check with Norie´s , or with the H.O.Publ. on harbor coordinates . During my career I worked in the sciences (be it Economy) and we learned to give up our own theories immediately , as soon as a better one appeared . I have up to now not seen any , let go a better one on the subject of your hand , whereas with many words you invite people to read "oddball" calculations that I would have committed . Why would I , per example , "conveniently" partly leave out quotes contradicting my points ? I simply delivered a first quantitative research on the Earhart incident , anything wrong with this ?


    In case anybody is interested here is a link to my lively debate with van Asten on the TIGHAR forum, just follow the thread to the end.
