Many people are still interested in what happened to her? Where did she die? How did she perish?
The Time article “Could New Clues Solve Amelia Earhart Disappearance?”, authored by Erica Ho, states that the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) have come upon some exciting evidence that once and for all my solve the mystery surrounding Earhart’s death.
The TIGHAR website states, “The Earhart Project is testing the hypothesis that Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan landed, and eventually died, on Gardner Island, now Nikumaroro in the Republic of Kiribati. Now in its 23rd year, a major underwater search is planned for July 2012, the 75th anniversary of the flight.”
Further, the Time article states, “Last week, [TIGHAR] researchers studying the disappearance of aviator Amelia Earhart revealed that they had stumbled upon a possible anti-freckle cream jar that could have belonged to Earhart herself on a remote island in the western Pacific.”
And, “Since then, more evidence has surfaced, suggesting that radio distress calls from Earhart’s plane may have been dismissed in the days after her disappearance as search and rescue operations waned.”
From this and other evidence recently uncovered, it is now believed that Earhart and her navigator Frederick "Fred" Noonan crashed on Nikumaroro Island in the western Pacific.
