New Apple Maps satellite images might just reveal Amelia’s lost Lockheed Electra 10E for the first time since disappearing on “Round The World Flight” July 2, 1937.

Formerly known as Gardner Island and believed to be the final resting place of the aviatrix. This slightly murky image found in 2021, may hold the location of the wreckage that’s been hidden away in its watery grave for more than eight decades.
