First Edition. octavo, red cloth in pictorial dust jacket. 176pp. SunShine House, Inc., Item #16008
Part of the "Aviation Heritage Library Series." The author interviewed almost 100 people directly and indirectly involved with Earhart's last flight. During his five years of research he discovered two government documents establishing the fact the Earhart survived the flight. He claims the Earhart incident was strikingly similiar to the U-2 incident in Russia 20 years later. Both involved the most sophisticated Lockheed planes of their day in a flight over enemy territory and a cover lie. Illustrations include black and white photographs, flight charts, maps, and a sequence of events from final takeoff to final signoff. Fine copy.
