Along with Earhart,was Fred Noonan, her navigator, who is also missing. All available men,ships,and planes took part in the biggest sea search in history. In the days that followed the search committee grew until it included a battleship,four destroyers, a minesweeper, a seaplane,and planes of the aircraft carrier Lexington. In all, ships and planes searched 250,000 miles of the Pacific.
