The mystery of Amelia Earhart‘s disappearance is one of the great unsolved mysteries. Now, there is a recently-discovered photo that is being publicized as a vital clue to the aviation pioneer’s fate.
The photograph suggests that Earhart survived the plane crash at sea. The famous female aviator vanished from the sky right after sending several troubling transmissions.
Earhart was attempting to fly around the world when she vanished on July 2, 1937, during a flight from Papua New Guinea to the Howland Island in the Pacific.
Researchers insisted that the new evidence from U.S Government archives can finally answer the mystery of Amelia Earhart disappearance.
A two-hour documentary entitled “Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence” will disclose the paperwork when it airs on the History channel July 9.
The investigators will present the conjecture that Amelia Earhart survived her flight after a crash-landing within the Marshall Islands. The pilot that they were referring to was then captured by the Japanese Navy and died in their custody on the island of Saipan.
They also declared that the U.S. authorities might have lined up Earhart’s destiny, noting the chance that she was on a spying mission.
Searching for Amelia Earhart’s Bones
An image which allegedly shows Amelia, Fred Noonan her navigator, and their doomed plane after the accident, is presented as a critical piece of evidence in the documentary.
It was discovered in the U.S. National Archives by a former U.S. Treasury Agent, Les Kinney.
“The photograph came out of a Navy file, a formerly top secret file in the National Archives,” says Kinney, during the documentary. “It was misfiled and that was the only reason I found it,” he added.
According to Kinney, it was a photograph of a group of people on a Marshall Island dock which showed Earhart sitting with her back to the camera.
“Look at the body, the build, the short hair, the fact that she’s Caucasian,
he explained, adding that the tall man on the left of the group is Noonan.
New Proof that Signifies Amelia Earhart Survived the Crash
Amelia Earhart’s plane is said to be on a barge in the far right of the picture, it was tested with recognition and proportional comparison technology.
Still, a curator in the Aeronautics Department of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Dorothy Cochrane said that there is no evidence that Earhart was sent out on a spying mission.
Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. A number of theories since then have emerged about her fate.
