A number of theories exist regarding what became of Amelia Earhart on the planned flight leg to Howland Island. This page includes links to information regarding the search for Earhart's plane, including the 2002 expedition undertaken by Nauticos, with Rockwell Collins and other contributors.

A momento from the spring 2002 search expedition is shown below.
This is an 8 oz styrofoam cup that was attached to the sonar sled on the expedition,
and subjected to an ocean depth of over 3 miles.
Note the comparison with an original-sized cup.
Facilities at the Rockwell Collins "Comm Central" site were valuable
in maintaining communications with the expedition.
A sample of the antennas available at this
facility are shown below.
The Collins designs include log periodics and billboard antennas.
