Researchers say that a site in Papua New Guinea may contain the long-lost remains of Amelia Earhart’s plane.

Wreckage off the coast of Buka Island may offer a vital clue in the decades-long mystery, according to investigators from Project Blue Angel. The project’s members have been studying the site for 13 years and say that wreckage off Buka Island could be from Earhart’s Lockheed Electra 10E.

If those modifications were unique to her plane, then it sounds like they have indeed found it.

Wondering why they don't hoover it up, clean, and then report the results.

That's a long ways from Nikumaroro or the Marshall Islands.    I think that those were the most popular theories out there.

I couldn’t find it reported anywhere but Fox News and the Daily Mail, neither of which strike me as particularly trustworthy. Has anyone tracked down the origin of this story?

Only 149 Electras has been build... it's not a thousand build type WWII airplane with hundreds lost in the pacific.

If it's a verified electra 10 with Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Wasp S3H1, with just 15 produced, it's probably the good one. But they need more than a light lenses...

I'm not sure if this site is legit or not.

Featured image NOTE: The photo above is not the actual plane of Amelia Earhart. It is used to illustrate the story.

The disappearance of famous pilot Amelia Earhart as she tried to circumnavigate the world in 1937 has obsessed many for years, with theories ranging from Earhart and her navigator dying on an island after they crashed in the ocean to being imprisoned by the Japanese military, suspected of spying.

Now a group of researchers say they’ve found a wreck off Buka Island, Papua New Guinea, that could provide the longed-for answers.

Divers from Project Blue Angel say they first located the wreckage in August 2018, and identified several characteristics of Earhart’s plane, most significantly a glass disc that could be a light lens from the plane.

I realize there is another thread mentioning this film, but I thought I'd post here as well since this is more of an ongoing thread.

There seems to be decent evidence of her crashing/landing is 3 different locations.   Hopefully one of them can be proven solid.

They need to find convincing proof... this pacific region his littered by WWII planes. Cool that they continue to find new information but it look more like money grabbing for fun search in tropical weather.

I agree the researchers, people who reported this info needs convincing proof.  What specificallt distinguishes this plane from the other airplanes of the same era and location.  What is the specific evidence?
