Bones of Amelia Earhart Found

March 14, 2018

Bones found on a remote island in the South Pacific almost certainly belong to lost aviation pioneer Ameila Earhart, an anthropologist has claimed.

Ms Earhart disappeared in July 1937 whilst trying to become the first woman to fly around the globe. She and her navigator Fred Noonan were last seen when they left Papua New Guinea.

The bones were found in 1940, but they were thought to belong to a man..

But now using modern techniques, it’s been determined they belonged to a woman. They’re also 100 times more likely to belong to Ms Earhart than any randomly selected other person.

As well as the bones, the 1940 search party found a woman’s shoe, a navigational instrument called a sextant and a bottle of Benadictine, which Ms Earhart was known to carry.

Who was Amelia Earhart?

Amelia Earhart was an American aviator (pilot) who set many flying records.
She became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, and the first person ever to fly solo from Hawaii to the U.S. mainland.
During a flight to circumnavigate the globe, Earhart disappeared somewhere over the Pacific in July 1937. Her plane wreckage was never found, and she was officially declared lost at sea. Her disappearance remains one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the twentieth century.
