Research Group Says Amelia Earhart Crash Evidence Found in Underwater Footage

• www.slate.com

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."
