Both of your let­ters cast­ing doubt on the au­then­tic­ity of the dis­cov­ery of Amelia Earhart’s plane en­gine by Aus­tralian soldiers in the jun­gle of New Bri­tain in 1945 (In­box, Aug 18-19) fail to ex­plain one un­de­ni­able fact. How did the en­gine and frame iden­ti­fi­ca­tion plates they found (con­firmed by the man­u­fac­tur­ers as be­long­ing to her plane) end up in the jun­gle? I would back any day David Billings’ find as be­ing the re­mains of her miss­ing plane over any other un­sus­tain­able the­ory. Jim Man­gle­son Ocean Drive, NSW
