Some Military expert said today that picture looks to be from the early 20's, not 1937. Who knows. Makes for some good TV I guess.

That photo looks exactly like Noonan, Earhart, and the Electra. Noonan's hairline (widow's peak).
Earhart's hairstyle. The fact they're both light-skinned in Japanese held territory where white people were forbidden.

The fact that its the Koshu (Japanese ship), towing a Lockheed Electra (37') on the barge. Yep.

Koshu Maru wasn't there in the Marshalls in the 1920's.
Koshu Maru was built in 1937.
The ship in the picture was positively identified as the Koshu Maru.
Its clearly in this picture as part of the Japanese invasion.

If the 150 + bones unearthed in 1968 hadn't 'disappeared', we might have gotten an answer. The ninety year old woman, and several other locals in the film were believable, but it still seemed too 'Geraldo'ish overall.

The Japanese were ceded several of the German Empire's colonies in the Pacific after WWI. They had several naval bases. Truk was one.

It's nonsense; made for TV to try to cash in on the more legit interest generated by the more serious and reputable TIGHAR work now in the news. Really cheap and dishonest in my opinion.

The photo is vague enough to read anything in to it. Japanese researchers who've looked into the actual records and movements of the ship debunked this years ago. Of course, that was in Japanese so these researchers didn't bother to read it or check beyond their narrow goal of proving what they wanted. In fact, the IJN had put out an all stations alert to RESCUE and return Earhart and Noonan to the USN. The picture's attention now is anti-historical cashing in at the worst.

This thread is about the Marshal Islands theory, based on a lot of witnesses and other forensic evidence.
All three theories are presented here: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/07/amelia-earhart-disappearance-theories-spd/

I'm from Kansas and my predicting was that she survived and was killed by the Japanese. I cant prove it but its been my guess for years.
