So many people know what Amelia Earhart accomplished in her short life. She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. However, during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe on a trip with co-pilot Fred Noon, her plane went missing and she disappeared on July 2, 1937. Her remains were never found. She was declared dead in absentia January 5, 1939. Now, there is a chance part of the mystery will be solved.
The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) believes they have evidence that Earhart’s plane did not crash into the Pacific Ocean as most people believe but rather they landed the plane on a remote uninhabited island where they died as castaways. Their evidence for this is stunning!
From the History Channel:
Researchers from TIGHAR have previously recovered a number of artifacts on and around Nikumaroro, which lies some 350 miles southeast of Earhart’s target destination on Howland Island, including aluminum metal sheetsthat match the dimensions and features of Earhart’s plane as well as personal items such as a women’s mirror, flight jacket buttons and an anti-freckle facial cream they believe Earhart was known to have used.
Doesn’t that kind of news fascinate you? Tell others about it because if they’re able to confirm it is her, it would solve one of the greatest aviation mysteries of all time!
