Discovery at Sea: Divers Believe They’ve Unearthed Amelia Earhart’s Long-Lost Plane

via ABC News (Australia)

A team searching the Pacific Ocean may have found the plane of famous aviator Amelia Earhart, who disappeared in 1937.

After scanning 5,200 miles of seabed, the team believes they located her Lockheed 10-E Electra near Howland Island.

CEO Tony Romeo highlighted Earhart’s pioneering role in aviation and plans to return to the area to investigate further.

“Amelia’s story is probably one of the most endearing true American stories. She broke barriers for women, she was a pioneer in aviation, and she was trying to do things that most people, many people wouldn’t even try today. There’s been a lot of wild, crazy theories about what happened to her,” Romeo said.

“But in the end, I think she was tantalizingly close to the island. She was a terrific pilot and I think we’re gonna prove that.”

The discovery marks the first time in nearly 87 years that anyone has seen Earhart’s aircraft.

“It was a surreal moment,” Romeo said.

“And then there was kind of this somber element to it because obviously two people passed away here. And the thought crossed my mind, ‘We’re the first ones in 86 years, 87 years, to see Amelia Earhart’s aircraft.”
