Fix on the Rising Sun
The Clipper Hi-jacking of 1938-and the Ultimate M.I.A.'s

by Charles N. Hill,

1st Books Library.

Copyright 2000

This is the story of the Pan AM Clipper hi-jacking of 1938 by officers of the IJN.
The charge of piracy is well documented and supported by evidence transmitted from the Clipper during her final flight under American colors-Westbound, out of Guam.
An exhaustive analysis of the flying boat's last five reported positions demonstrates that her flight reports were deceptive and that her falsely reported approach to Manila was in conflict with Pan American Airways usual flight policies. Most important, the analysis clearly indicates Japanese involvement in priacy by radio-deception and suggests, not only the Clippers's destination, but her true position at the instant that her radio signals ended abruptly-on approach to an Imperial Japanese Navy seaplane base, at Ulithi.

Yes it is and what allot of ppl do not realize is that Japanese agents were cought by the FBI several times sabotageing the Pan-Am clippers.
Also there were a couple of other clippers that were deystroyed under suspicsious circumstances in the pacific.

Hi,

Do you have any URLs with info about the other clippers that were deystroyed?
You gotta think, if they could send agents to deystroy and even capture a cliper. they could have had a hand with Amelia Earhart..

When I get the cash handy, I gotta get Fix on the Rising Sun.
