This year marked the 71st anniversary of one of the greatest unsolved aviation mysteries of all time.
It intimately involves Papua New Guinea as Lae was her last port of call before she disappeared somewhere over the vast Pacific for the longest stretch of her around-the-world flight.
The mystery and a long fruitless search -costing many millions of US dollars - had begun.
The search for Amelia continues to this day, in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, and because of this interest I have created a blog called Amelia Earhart and Papua New Guinea http://ameliaearhartandpng.blogspot.com/.
Have a look and I'd love to hear from you.
