In 1937 Amelia Earhart boarded her Lockheed Model 10 Electra airplane in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe. She mysteriously disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Attmpts to find her downed Electra have never ceased, and now, 75 years later, Discovery News is reporting that a team of researchers may have located her.


The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery mounted a $2 million expedition to recover Amelia's wreckage near Howland Island. The expedition was called off, but luckily the team went back and examined all of the underwater footage and think they may have found her.

The group says they have photographic evidence of what appears to be "the fender, possibly the wheel and possibly some portions of the strut" of Earhart's Electra.

It isn't definitive, but this is very promising news.
