Research Group Says Amelia Earhart Crash Evidence Found in Underwater Footage


After 75 years, one group is convinced it's hot on the trail of missing aviator Amelia Earhart.

The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery originally called off their $2.2 million hunt for Earhart's aircraft off Nikumaroro Island in July, admitting they hadn't found any real evidence supporting their theory that the female pilot and her navigator had made a crash landing there.

But after reviewing underwater camera footage, the researchers now believe they may have found a debris field with multiple objects "in a location where we had previously reasoned where airplane wreckage should be" including "the fender, possibly the wheel and possibly some portions of the strut."
