Amelia Earhart was a Famous American aviation pioneer and author. Amelia Earhart was the fist female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. But Amelia Earhart's daring round the world flight together with her navigator Fred Noonan was cut short when her Lockheed Electra disappeared from thin air over the Pacific Ocean on June 2, 1937.
But what do you think really happened to her? Some Researchers say that they know where Amelia Earhart have died, some say she survived her crash-landing. In this Newly discovered photo, proves that Earhart and Noonan did not die in a crash-landing.
A photo was found in the National Archives that historians and researchers believe shows Amelia Earhart (sitting on the dock) and Fred Noonan )standing at left) in the Marshall Islands after their plane crashed nearby in the Pacific Ocean 1937. In the new documentary, historians argue that the photograph proves Earhart and Noonan were picked up by the Japanese Military and they wee taken as prisoners.
In History channel's new documentary Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence that airs July 9, researchers explain how they identified Earhart and Noonan in the latest photo. In the photo, Noonan (Earhart's navigator), thought to be the Caucasian man facing camera on the left side of the photo, it's very sharp receding hairline, prominent nose and teeth are very convincing pieces of evidence that it is Noonan.
For Earhart, a figure of a woman with similar to Earhart'ss haircut and approximate body type sits on the dock, facing away from the camera.
Though they can't be sure of when the photo was taken and there is no record of Earhart being in the Marshall Island.
After her crash-landing, Earhart used the radio from her damaged plane to call for help for nearly a week before te tide pulled the craft into the sea.
But the residents in Marshall Island have previously claimed they saw the plane crash near the island and that with Earhart and Noonan lived taken away by the Japanese on the island of Saipan where she eventually died.
