History TV18 Presents Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence
MUMBAI: Amelia Earhart, American aviation pioneer and author was the first pilot aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic. On July 2, 1937, during an attempt to circumnavigate the world, Earhart and her fellow navigator mysteriously vanished over the Central Pacific Ocean. All search efforts made during the period were unable to locate the pair or their airplane. HISTORY TV18’s upcoming show ‘Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence’ airing 1st July, 2018 at 9 PM will unfold this mystery, as the two hour special documentary reveals some shocking evidence.
In 1937, famous aviator Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan embarked upon a planned circumnavigation of the Earth via largely equatorial routes. Departing from Miami on June 1, Earhart and Noonan completed multiple legs of their journey without incident. On July 2, the pair took off on the longest and most dangerous leg of the trip en route to Howland Island from Lae, Papua New Guinea. However, they never reached their destination.
Former FBI official Shawn Henry investigates new, shocking evidence that Amelia Earhart was actually captured by the Japanese military and includes a photograph that goes to show Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan were alive after their disappearance. Evidence includes documents containing new information indicating that the U.S. government knew that she was in the custody of a foreign power, and may have covered it up.
The fate of Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan has remained an enigma for 80 years, but the discovery of the evidence might change it all!
