Amelia Earhart Plane Fragment Identified

A fragment of Amelia Earhart’s lost aircraft has been identified to a high degree of certainty for the first time ever since her plane vanished over the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937, in a record attempt to fly around the world at the equator.

New research strongly suggests that a piece of aluminum aircraft debris recovered in 1991 from Nikumaroro, an uninhabited atoll in the southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati, does belong to Earhart’s twin-engined Lockheed Electra.

Well, you can judge for yourself. Thus far, none of the evidence has convinced me of anything much. They’ll have to find a more definitive link such as the actual plane or identifying remains (human or personal).
