Amelia Earhart has been in the news again lately due to a 2 hour special recently aired by the History Channel, revolving around a photo purported to show Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, on a dock on Saipan around the time they disappeared.
Turns out, the photo was actually published in a Japanese travel book in 1935, two full years before Earhart disappeared. ::sad trombone::
Also, according to The International Group for Historical Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), most of the other evidence in the special was old, previously debunked theories and inaccurate information. ::bigger sad trombone::
Despite all that, we thought this would be an excellent time to go over the facts of the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, her navigator, Fred Noonan and her Lockheed Electra Model 10E. Enjoy!
