Claims have surfaced of aviator Amelia Earhart's plane wreckage being found in Papua New Guinea.
The wreck was reportedly found off the coast of Bougainville and is said to be filled with gold bullion and guarded by a large snake, experts however have downplayed the find as "silly beyond description". Local businessman Cletus Harepa has been paying to have divers inspect the wreckage and claims that they've recovered two skulls from the plane's cockpit.
There are claims that one of the world's great aviation mysteries - the disappearance of 1930s airwoman Amelia Earhart - has been solved in Papua New Guinea. Locals believe a plane wreck could be the final resting place of Earhart who disappeared somewhere over the Pacific in 1937.

I really like the snake part. It all sounds so exciting, makes me want to pack my bags and go explore. Who doesn't love a lost treasure story, specially a historical treasure.... Sighhhh... Seriously it should be checked out though tho, who knows what they may find, it can't hurt. Especially if they are guarding it to that extent, there must be something there. Unless they are just trying to make a fortune off the media.

Two skulls recoverd. She must've grown another head! Incredible. She was accompanied by her engineer, Fred Noonan. (I have done some work on the Amelia Earhart story - I'll dig it out this afternoon.)

In the early 70's I was lucky enough to go to Howland Is and PNG. While there I heard all kind of stories about Earhart. Some made sense, some were so weird there was no way possible in them being true. I would really like to see it solved some day. But the plane off PNG. Well it sounds too much like a fish story to me.

I've always been a fan of the Gardner Island theory or the Crash and Sink theory (but that one doesn't appeal to me and there would be pretty much no evidence or clues)
