Amelia Earhart May Have Survived Crash-Landing, Newly Discovered Photo Suggests

The photo, according to experts, could be the first convincing evidence that Earhart survived a crash-landing in the Marshall Islands.

"This absolutely changes history", he added of his team's investigation. For years, she continued to amaze people with her flying skill and stamina.

Henry worked on the upcoming History Channel special Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence, which discovered the photo in question.

Earhart appears to be sitting down in the photograph, her short hair appears to match pictures of Earhart from the time, and perhaps more telling, is that the woman is wearing trousers - something Earhart was known to do despite being unusual for the era. The man believed to be Noonan is facing the camera, so his face could be carefully analyzed by experts. He then used Earhart's torso measurements to compare her with the other figure. He believes the plane on the barge is the Electra, and that two of the people on the dock are Earhart and Noonan.

Secondly. based on where Earhart took flight in New Guinea, Ric says she would not have had enough fuel to get to the Marshall Islands, where the photo was allegedly taken. The documentary alleges that the pilot and navigator died at some point as Japanese prisoners in Saipan.

This Japanese military theory has been in discussion since the 1960s, and is backed by witnesses who apparently saw their aircraft land and saw the two in Japanese custody.

The government's official story, however, is that that her plane ran out of gas and crashed into the Pacific Ocean somewhere near her destination, Howland Island.

"If in fact she was spying on the Japanese, the government may not have wanted the American public to know they put "America's sweetheart" in that situation and she was captured". "It's not the attention grabber", she said. First, the woman in the photo is wearing clothing similar to Amelia's button down shirt and pant style, her posture, slightly curved shoulders and all, looks like most photos of the aviatrix. "(That's just) wishing her a speedy end rather than a nasty one". It's still unclear whether the US government knew who was in the photo and who took it. Did she die a castaway?

The black-and-white photo was marked "Jaluit Atoll" in the National Archives. "I don't believe there is legitimacy to this", he told CNN. According to Shawn Henry, who served as FBI Executive Assistant Director, a recently discovered picture from archives shows Earhart and Noonan after they supposedly crash landed.
