Is This Woman Amelia Earhart In 1970 a sensational book, Amelia Earhart Lives, was published by McGraw-Hill. Its author, Joe Klaas, claimed the woman in this photograph, Irene Bolan, was actually missing aviator Amelia Earhart! Klaas claimed that Earhart's attempted round-the-world flight and disappearance was part of an elaborate pre-Second World War spy mission orchestrated by the U.S. government. Klaas' tale was based on information received by Major Joseph Gervais. Gervais had a chance encounter with Bolan at a 1965 air show and was surprised by the resemblance between Bolan and Earhart (who had vanished over the Pacific Ocean in 1937). Klass further asserted that modern photographic analysis techniques proved that Bolan and Earhart had identical facial features--right down to the tear ducts. Bolan was a pilot too, but skeptics doubted Klass' claim. An outraged Bolan sued McGraw-Hill for $1.5 million. The book was pulled and the parties settled out of court. Still, there are some people who think Klaas was right...

Ever since Kennedy's assassination the distrust on our government increased tremendously. Who really knows from Amerlia Earhart to UFOs, what is really the truth?

Ciffy, I agree with you totally. Ever since the JFK assassination and all the nonsense in the Warren Commission's report, I'm highly suspicious of anything 'official' that comes from any level of government. I question everything now. There are so many stories about Amelia Earhart's disappearnce that I'm tempted to believe she was indeed on a secret spy mission for FDR.

an indigenous woman in a japanese occupied pacific island was filmed as saying she saw a female flyer being taken away by japanese soldiers.

The Japanese know what happened but of course would be too embarrassed to admit to her probable execution as a suspected spy.

The authorities are upset Earhart didn't try to communicate when she went down. He radio was working at last reports.

The scenario that hasn't been explored is that she may have been forced down by a japanese fighter.

Yes, that's one common theory Wikiriwhi. It's certainly as plausible as any theory about the fate of Amelia Earhart.
