Researchers scouring a remote, uninhabited South Pacific island believed to be the final resting place of Amelia Earhart have discovered clues that the aviatrix may have struggled to survive there after an emergency landing.

Three pieces of a pocket knife and parts of what may be a broken cosmetic glass jar provide new evidence that the legendary Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan landed and ultimately died as castaways on the secluded island of Nikumaroro.

The tiny island, located in the southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati, is roughly 300 miles southeast of Howland Island – the target destination of Earhart’s fatal flight on July 2, 1937.

It would be great if they found her remains, so we could bring her home. She was an extremely brave woman who inspired adventurism in others.

You obviously did. BTW, they should make a movie about a castaway that survives a plane crash and befriends a ball. I should right that screenplay.

Definitely agree. I would love to know that her story finally has an ending and some
closure. I wonder if she still has relatives living? It would be as big a story almost as
finding the Titanic was.

And of course Hollywood had to adjust her looks as they did casting Amy Adams as her in the Night at the Museum sequel:

Of those above. Sharon Lawrence looks the most like her.
Her cheek bones and facial structure is very similar.

She was an outstanding woman aviator and should be seen as such. Hollywood (and people today) forget that women of that era were simply women of that era who dared to push the "envelope" for the actual endeavor - not to make a lesbian/political/victim statement.

If we could find her and her companion, they should both be brought home with honor.

I agree... Women of that era were hero's many helped push for and gain the right to vote, get into the work force and start pushing for equality, and they meant EQUAL not special. Plus they understood that Men and Women are fundamentally different and they didn't want identical rights/privileges, just equal.

on the other hand it was Women that pushed Prohibition, damn women for getting rid of our beer :p LOL

nope...even if my church promotes temperance, it's not the Governments role to legislate morality and nor should they try.

Not to mention that Prohibition led to the biggest rise in crime this country ever saw until the crack down on drugs. How we didn't learn from that is beyond me.
