Results of Amelia Earhart Search

Further to my blog post on More On Ameilia Earhart Search, comes this from Heritage Daily:
Earhart, who was the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic in 1932, was en route to Howland Island on the 2nd July 1937 when the Electra 10E aircraft she and Noonan were in disappeared. Many experts believe that a navigational error which led to the pair running out of fuel over the sea was the cause of their disappearance.

Though disappointed by initial findings the group leading the project, The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIHGAR), still believe that Earhart and her navigator Noonan crashed onto a reef off the Kiribati atoll Nikumaroro, in the Pacific Ocean and died soon after.
