Amelia Earhart Conspiracy

Introduction

Amelia Earhart was one of the most celebrated women aviators, breaking about fifteen different flying records. On June 1,1937 Earhart and Fred Noona, her navigator, began their round the world flight. If completed she would be the second person to finish this flight and the first women to ever accomplish the trip. On July 1,1937, with only 7,000 miles left on their trip, Earhart and Noona took off from Lae, New Guinea and flew 2,556 miles to Howland Island, but they would never reach their destination. After an extensive search party, there was no sign of Amelia or her plane, making the disappearance open for the worlds conspiracy theories. With analyzation of two conspiracy websites, they both tried to explain what really happened to Amelia Earhart. The International Ground for Historic Aircraft Recovery, the site better suited for an academic research paper, is a nonprofit foundation dedicating itself to promoting responsible aviation archaeology and historic preservation. Their web address is www.tighar.org. The CNMI guide is an information, travel guide website with the history of Northern Mariana Island. Their link to their Amelia Earhart page is www.cnim-guide.com/history/ww2/.

Part I: Similarities

The TIGHAR website and the CNMI Guide website both provide information on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. First, both websites have a nice clean look to them. The font is an appropriate size and color for each of their color schemes. Second, both pages keep a nice balance with visuals and information throughout the site. Also, some of the authors were noted for some information, but the websites failed to update for most of their information. In addition, at first glance both websites seem unreliable due to the visuals. Either the color scheme or the pictures were to childish, for it to feel like an educational site.
