Janet Sprintall is heard in The Oceanic Six: A Conspiracy of Lies. She comments on the ocean currents in the area where the Oceanic 6 are alleged to have crashed. She states that in September 2004, when the crash occurred, the currents were moving strongly to the west, meaning that it would have been "impossible" to float to the east. This contradicts the official story of the Oceanic 6, which was that they floated northeast from the crash site to Membata.

The real life Janet Sprintall is an Oceanographer with Scripps Institution of Oceanography.[1]

Quote about herself... "My PhD in Physical Oceanography is from the University of Sydney, NSW, Australia under the supervision of Prof. Matthias Tomczak. I am an observational physical oceanographer who is primarily interested in the mean and variability of large-scale circulation of the ocean. As a sea-going oceanographer I have managed to work in some fairly remote and exotic places, such as the Indonesian seas, the Philippine Seas, and in the Southern Ocean. You can find links below to web pages that describe these projects. My tropical work has mainly consisted of mooring deployments in the narrow passages of the Indonesian and Philippine archipelagos. The moorings consist of ADCPs and current meters that measure velocity, and microcat CTDs that measure temperature and salinity. The moorings are typically deployed for 2-3 years. From these data I study the variability of the flow from intraseasonal to annual time scales. My Southern Ocean work is varied: from a long-term high resolution XBT transect across the Antarctic Circumpolar Current in Drake Passage to analysis of remotely-sensed sea surface height and SST measurements and their relationship to annual and climate modes of variability."
