Will Amelia Earhart’s Plane Be Found in Kiribati?

The Pacific Island nation of Kiribati  may be the key to finally settling the 75-year-old mystery of what happened to aviatrix Amelia Earhart.

Earhart disappeared in 1936 over the Pacific Ocean.  High tech photos may have relevaled the final resting place of her plane in the island-chain nation of Kiribati (pronounced Kure-a-biss).

Enhanced analysis of a photograph taken just months after Earhart’s Lockheed Electra plane vanished shows what experts think may be the landing gear of the aircraft protruding from the waters off the remote island of Nikumaroro, in what is now the Pacific nation of Kiribati, they said.

Armed with that analysis by the State Department, historians, scientists and salvagers from the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, are returning to the island in July in the hope of finding the wreckage of Earhart’s plane and perhaps even the remains of the pilot and her navigator Fred Noonan.
