Just saw the movie "Amelia", didn't realize it was the Coast Guard's fault that she couldn't find the island. ( The battery went dead in their radio direction finder, so they could not give her a compass bearing to fly in on) Her navigator, Noonan, couldn't get a celestial position due to poor visability... 20:37, 24 October 2009 (EDT)S.W.
