The stories of The Lost Hawaii Clipper and Amelia Earhart have criss-crossed for decades and our research have verified this. Sightings of Amelia Earhart have been seen all over the Pacific since her disappearance in 1937. That said, we wanted to pass on these interesting articles released this week…
NEW YORK (AP) — The photo is haunting. Among a number of figures gathered on a dock, the fuzzy image seems to be that of a woman, her back to the camera, gazing at what may be her crippled aircraft loaded on a barge, and perhaps wondering what her future might hold.
Is this Amelia Earhart, the world-famous aviator, witnessed after her mysterious disappearance while attempting the first round-the-world flight 80 years ago this month?
That is the theory put forth in “Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence,” a two-hour documentary airing Sunday at 9 p.m. EDT on the History channel. It uncovers records, including this newly revealed photograph that shows what may be a healthy Earhart along with her navigator Fred Noonan, after they were last heard from.
The film also argues that after the pair crash-landed in the Japanese-held Marshall Islands, they were picked up by the Japanese military and that Earhart, perhaps presumed to be a U.S. spy, was held prisoner.
And there’s more: The United States government knew of her whereabouts and did nothing to rescue her, according to the film.

The discovery is featured in a new History channel special, “Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence,” that airs Sunday July 9, 2017.

There are problems with this theory, to put it kindly. First, the MSN article claims that “Shortly after midnight on July 2, 1937, Earhart climbed into her Lockheed Electra at an airfield in Papua New Guinea and took off into the dark, muggy night.” The writer made the mistake of assuming that Earhart’s takeoff time of 0000 GMT translated into midnight in Papau New Guinea. As the video below shows, Earhart didn’t take off into the dark muggy night; she took off at 10 AM in the morning.
