We all know the story of Amelia Earhart and how she was the first women to fly an airplane, However, what we don’t know is how or why she disappered. In 1937, Amelia Earhart mysteriously disappeared. This has been one of the most famous unsolved mysteries in American history to date. A new documentary, from HISTORY, will air a special that may help answer a lot of questions people have had on Earhart’s story. The special claims that Earhart survived the crash in the Marshall Islands. It then says that she was captured by the Japanese military and died in their custody.
This documentary revolves around former FBI executive assistant director, Shawn Henry, who has investigated U.S. archives and uncovered long lost information about Earhart’s story. The special says that there has been a new photo of Earhart that has been discovered. The photo is of Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, in the Marshall Islands, alive after the crash. Until now, this photo was mislabeled and hidden, which is why the mystery was always so hard to understand.
This possibility was always a common conspiracy theory about Earhart’s disappearance, but now that the photo has been found more people are starting to believe it. Henry suggests that the Japanese might have thought that Earhart and her navigator were spies for America, which is why they kidnapped them. American searchers were not allowed on the Marshall Islands, so no one was ever able to find traces of the plane.
