Photo Gallery > What Really Happened to Amelia Earhart?

What really happened to Amelia Earhart? Mark Allen, retired Marine Corps Lt. Colonel who flew jet fighters for more than 27 years, will present his answer at 7 p.m., Wednesday, June 25 at the Shipman Mansion in Edgewater Park. Allen’s fascination with Amelia Earhart’s story began when he was a child, well before he began flying F-4 Phantoms, in which he was a command navigator. He concluded his military career as Commanding Officer of the 150th Air Refueling Squadron at McGuire Air Force Base. “There are countless theories, books and movies on the subject” of the loss of Amelia Earhart, Allen says. “Was she really captured by the Japanese and spent the war broadcasting as Tokyo Rose? How about the claim that she survived and ended up living in New Jersey? Who was Fred Noonan and what role did he play? Was she really in radio contact for hours before she was lost? Did Amelia simply get lost and disappear into the vast Pacific without a trace?” Allen’s presentation, which includes a discussion of the role of celestial navigation in Earhart’s loss, will use a well researched theory, supported by circumstantial evidence, to answer these questions. The Shipman Mansion, home to the Red Dragon Canoe Club, is at 221 Edgewater Avenue, Edgewater Park. Admission to Allen’s talk is free and is part of an on-going series of monthly educational events at the Mansion. As always, desert will be served.
