Discussion about wrecks and losses as well as historic sites in the Pacific.
Posting now to see if all my images can be uploaded directly rather than via photobucket. Photobucket begins charging users June 1 st. All photos are blurred on June 1 if user doesn't pay. Test<br> [img]http://OronaL10E.jpg_aquariusradar.com/OronaSaipanTheory.html[/img] <br>End test.
When I worked on Canton (Kanton) -1973-the Musick memorial was still in good shape. The Pan Am employees put up the little lighthouse and bronze plaque during the short time that Pan Am used Canton for Pacific flights to Australia/ New Zealand. I bring this up as I just read that Dr. Ballard's RV Nautilus is going to deep search for Musick's downed S42 Samoan Clipper off the Tututilla point at American Samoa. And later this summer the research vessel will do bottom survey research around the Howland/Baker Islands. Not advertised as a search for Amelia Earhart's plane, but I'm sure they will be keeping watch for any clues in the sonar/photo data.
