A Newly Discovered Photograph Might Prove That Amelia Earhart Survived Her Flight

A Newly Discovered Photograph Might Prove That Amelia Earhart Survived Her Flight

A newly discovered photograph may solve the mystery of Amelia Earhart's disappearance, NBC's Tom Costello reported Wednesday morning on Today.

Taken about 1937, in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific.

Les Kinney, a retired government investigator who has spent 15 years looking for Earhart clues, told NBC that the photo "clearly indicates that Earhart was captured by the Japanese". Photographic experts in the documentary compared the man to file photos of Noonan and say it looks very similar.

The discovery will be featured in a new History Channel special, "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence", which airs Sunday. On June 1, 1937, she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, took off from Miami, Florida.

Earhart was the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and disappeared over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to fly around the globe.

"The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Itasca did receive several strong voice transmissions from Earhart as she approached the area, the last at 8:43 a.m. stating: "We are on the line of position 156-137". "I would prefer to think that she had more of a quick exit via a crash in the ocean rather than capture by the Japanese. but that's neither here nor there". Some point to similarities between the man's receding hairline and Noonan's actual appearance.

Days after their alleged crash landing, Henry believes Earhart and Noonan, along with their plane, were picked up by the Japanese military and taken roughly 200 miles to Jaluit Island, where Kinney's photograph - which contains the caption: "MARSHALL ISLANDS, JALUIT ATOLL, JALUIT ISLAND. The nose is very prominent", Gibson said. He argues that the Japanese may have thought the aviators were spies, and since American searchers weren't allowed into the Marshall Islands, they never found a trace of the plane.

Locals have long claimed to have seen Earhart's plane go down, though it would have to have been quite a bit off course to have reached the Marshal Islands.

Independent analysts have informed History that the photo may in fact be legitimate. Anything further than that is largely unproven theorizing, she said. "We don't know when".

However, it is uncertain whether the person who took the photograph or the USA government was aware that the person in the photograph might have been Earhart.

But experts now believe the pair appear in the photo - proving they were captured by the Japanese and held as prisoners of war.
