[ # ] Discover Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence tonight
July 9th, 2017 under History Channel


Ever since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with Amelia Earhart. So much so, out of all of the celebrities that have lived/live in my town, I am most proud and excited to say that she lived here. Therefore, when I head the History Channel was doing a special called Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence, I knew I had to watch it. The 2-hour special that airs tonight at 9p is must watch for people who are interested in some of the biggest mysteries of the 20th Century including her unsolved mystery.

On July 2, 1937, Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan went missing as she tried to be the first woman to circumvent the world in a plane. She was supposed to refuel at Howland Island, but she never made it there. The US Government believed that her plane went down in the Ocean and declared her dead nearly two year later. Since neither she nor her plane were ever found, their have been plenty of theories of what happened.

Tonight, Former FBI Executive Assistant Director, Shawn Henry, uncovers new evidence that seems to prove that she survived and what might have happened to her after she made her final landing.

His first stop is talking to a man that has uncovered a photo that seems to show Earhart and Noonan on the Marshall Islands which was controlled by the Japanese Government at the time. He takes the photo to a man to verify that it has not been photoshopped and it is declared authentic. Then, he shows it to a man for facial recognition. He is able to show us that Noonan’s face and Earhart’s back appear to be a match.

Now that he has photographic evidence, it is time to talk to the son of a man who reportedly witnessed Earhart’s plane go down. Something that was documented in stamps from the Islands back in the ’60s. Everything seems to prove that a man and a woman did indeed crash land there 80 years and a week ago.

Not only has their landing been documented, a few years ago part of a plane was found on the Island. Henry gets it tested, and it seems to be from a plane like the one that Earhart flew. Henry takes the man who found the part back to Island and he shows us some wheels from dollies that he believes transported the plane to the Japanese ship that captured the pilot and her navigator.

Reports have suggested that were captured by the Japanese because they were believed to have been American spies. At the time the Japanese had made Saipan Island a makeshift prison and that is where it is believed to be where they were taken to. Henry speaks to a 90-year-old woman, who is believed to be the last person to see them alive. The woman was just 12 at the time and she remembers seeing them because she had never seen White people before. She describes what she saw to Ryan.

Now Ryan goes to Saipan to see if he can go by what she said to find any evidence that Earhart was there. What does he find? You will just have to tune in to find out. Also to learn how and why her plane never made to Howland Island.

This special is like a history book of what might have happened to Amelia Earhart after that fateful day she was never heard from again. Nothing could steer my attention away from the television as I watched it because I wanted to absorb every single word, interview some of which were archival and photo that were shared in this documentary. It was that compelling and you do not want to miss it if you want to know what most likely happened to the infamous woman. It truly leaves you feeling like this mystery has finally been solved.
