A woman who swayed the hearts of millions by winning numerous awards in every field and by becoming first woman aviatrix had disappeared in 1937. The mysteries behind her disappearance have not yet been unveiled as researchers are still battling to find as to where Amelia Earhart got disappeared.
It has been revealed that an expedition by the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) would be carried out on the waters off Nikumaroro in the search of Amelia Earhart. The expedition is being supported by the Discovery Channel.
The researchers are hopeful that some of their answers might be answered during the expedition. The Nikumaroro is located on the uninhabited island of Kiribati. The researchers are of the view that Amelia Earhart might have succumbed to death after meeting a crash.
It has been informed that the advanced equipments would be used in the expedition. Amelia Earhart disappeared on 2nd of July, 1937. At that time, Amelia Earhart was flying at the equators of the world.
It is believed that while flying her aircraft might have run out of fuel. Because of it, her aircraft might have crashed in the Pacific Ocean. TIGHAR's Executive Director, Ric Gillespie holds a different view. He said, ‚ÄúThe navigation line Amelia described in her final in-flight radio transmission passed through not only Howland Island, her intended destination, but also Gardner Island, now called Nikumaroro‚ÄĚ.
There are a few who are of the view that Amelia Earhart might have survived from the crash. She might not have been able to get help needed which might have led to her death. On 2nd of July, the 75th anniversary of Earhart's disappearance would be celebrated. The whole area would be surveyed by the researchers during the expedition.
