The Phoenix rises from the ashes of the WIX Tighar thread smiles

Scott gave those of us debating about Tighar a fair room to move and to be fair some of the content was "playing the man rather than the ball" a bit too much, and so when legal threats starting arriving it was understandable for Scott to pull the pin.


But all is not lost, the debate and critical review of Tighars operations and activities continues at a new home where the owners are less likely to be intimidated and more resourced to respond to any such legal threats.

Hence there is no need to place Scott or WIX at any risk.

For those interested in reading some of the past WIX posts there is a small selection of those recovered from the TECTIC archive smiles, while the debate continues over current Earhart project activities in light of a poorly planned and managed Niku VIII expedition.


There is also critical review of other "current" projects such as the TBD Devastator at Jaluit Lagoon, the P-38 "Maid of Harlech" in Wales and of course the oldest and most successful Tighar aircraft recovery project --"The Agaiambo E" / (The Lady in Waiting).

In fact the only aircraft recovery targeted by Tighar that has actually been recovered! Billed at the time as "the largest and most ambitious aviation archaeological operation in History"!

Again thanks to Scott for his past support at WIX to provide a place to openly discuss and critique the claims and activities of Tighar, The International Group for Historical Aircraft Recovery~!

Please don't post comments back to this thread or commence further debate on the topic here, this is simply to help those seeking the Tighar and Earhart debate to find its new home.

Great new forum....hope you get a lot of traffic there.

I found the chemical composition analysis of the supposed window patch to be very telling. It basically compared levels of chromium, nickel and zinc from the patch and compared to samples from other Lockheeds of the period and samples from American WWII aircraft (namely the Shoo Shoo Baby B-17 at Wright Patterson) and found that chemically, it has more in common with later metals than pre-war material.

If you're interested in the latest TIGHAR goings-on...check the Aviation Mysteries website.
It reports the group has started banning members/posters to its site if they don't follow the company line.
