    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.

    Interesting if turns out true.

    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.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    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.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    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:


    and Diane Keaton:


    and Sharon Lawrence:


    Of course Amelia really wasn't an ugly woman...

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