The Lost Flight of Amelia Earhart

A Novel Based on Historical Evidence
By Author, Carol Linn Dow

Carol Linn Dow, screenwriter for the movie project, "The Lost Flight of Amelia Earhart," spent ten years intensely researching the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan. Dow’s compelling screenplay paved the way for her to write the book, "The Lost Flight of Amelia Earhart." Now the untold secrets of Earhart’s disappearance veiled by the controversial multitude of theories over the years, can be told through the dedicated efforts of Dow, revealing at last the story behind the story with supporting details and evidence that only a published work can provide.

As author, Carol Linn Dow describes it, "Lost Flight" is the presentation of what a hard nosed newspaper editor by the name of Mack Brown believed happened at Howland Island in the Central Pacific on Amelia Earhart’s final and tragic round-the-world flight. However, Mack Brown couldn’t print what he believed, and he was lacking in the final proof. There were no dead bodies or aircraft debris. The hard facts were missing, and they are still missing even today.

For editor Brown to print a story that Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan were captured by the Japanese and executed as spies would edge America that much closer to a war with Japan. In 1937, the year in which the novel is set, a charge that Amelia Earhart had been captured by the Japanese would have exploded international relations. It would have been enough, some people believe, to have started a war.

In the book the reader will see the documentation behind the "Lost Flight" including the e-mails and the testimony of experts such as the late Navy Captain Almon Gray, and Pan American Airways radio operator Paul Rafford, two radio experts who set the record straight on the Earhart loss. You’ll read several of the letters that were written by CBS radio reporter Fred Goerner who was, we believe, the best of the Earhart researchers. In fact, there is a long list of researchers involved with this mystery, and they all have their individual stories to tell. "Lost Flight" goes further then the typical Amelia Earhart book and refutes the "crashed and sank" theories, the Irene Bolam stories, as well as those theories that Earhart flew south to the Phoenix Islands and perished on a deserted Pacific Island.

Screenwriter/author, Carol Linn Dow started her career as the editor-publisher of a stock market magazine called The Dow Digest. In its day, Dow Digest left a lasting impression on the moguls of Wall Street and was famous for innovative concepts some of which are used, extensively, in today’s world of high finance. Tired of writing stock market stories, Ms. Dow sold the magazine and began studying screenwriting. The subject matter she picked was Amelia Earhart. As a licensed pilot and well acquainted with her own V-tail Beechcraft Bonanza, Carol became fast friends with Amelia Earhart’s sister, Muriel Earhart Morrissey. She felt the Amelia Earhart story had all the elements a screenwriter needed to produce a great motion picture. To top it all off, the so-called "experts" on the subject matter were, for the most part, practicing the subtle art of "quackery" (in her opinion) on the ultimate fate of Amelia Earhart. Buoyed by researchers from the Lost Flight Group such as Paul Rafford, Mike Campbell, Ron Bright, Alex Mandel, Lily Gelb, Cam Warren, and others, Carol wrote the screenplay for "The Lost Flight of Amelia Earhart."
