This is Douglas Westfall, and I publish books on America's History. I look for the treasures of America's History, real treasures found between the pages of the letters written by Americans. In this book you'll find 65 year-old interviews by the author. These are from two dozen men who were there at the 30 stops Amelia Earhart made around the world, and they tell a much different story. You'll find these and much more within this book:

How this book came to be.

I gave a lecture on California Ranchos in the Los Angeles area in 1997, where I met a man who provided the letters used in my first book. He had been a member of the 73rd Bomb Wing in WWII, and introduced me to other members of the 73rd. Later, I published our first book on Amelia Earhart with a member of the 73rd. The preface for that book was written by Paul Rafford, Jr., a former Pan Am radio engineer. Over time, Paul showed me the vast amount of information that he had collected on Earhart's World Flight which became the foundation for this publication.

The interviews, research, and testing that Paul had done over the past six decades, overwhelmingly convinced me that he was correct, Earhart had deliberately made changes to her aircraft, engines, and radio; but why? This book tells of the exchange of airplanes in Miami, replacement of engines in Bandoeng, and significant modifications of her radio, in order to allow her to fly under the radio-network that existed in 1937.

Rafford built a model of the Electra and outfitted it with a miniture radio. Using the same antennas that Earhart had used, he shows how modifications prevented anyone from tracking her around the world. This alone is ground-breaking work on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan.

In Bandoeng for example, special engines were flown to that airport which replaced those on her Electra 10E. This was surprising as the engines she had were the most powerful available for that aircraft at that time.

Amelia Earhart's Around-The-World flight



Earhart and Noonan disappeared in 1937, Paul Rafford, Jr. has proven they did it with Amelia Earhart's Radio.

While most people wonder what happened to Amelia Earhart, we Pan Am'ers wonder what happened to one of our greatest navigators. We know very well, he didn't just get lost. Fred Noonan had flown the Pacific more times than any other navigator in history and the navigational demands on Noonan during the world flight, were no greater than when he navigated the Pacific in the Pan Am Clippers.
