New photo suggests Amelia Earhart survived crash, lived in Japan

Amelia Earhart May Have Survived Crash-Landing, Newly Discovered Photo Suggests

The History investigators also concluded that the woman's body proportions match those of Earhart.

Legendary pilot Amelia Earhart may have survived the 1937 disappearance of her plane, a television documentary says, basing its theory on a recently found photograph.

We all remember the story: Earhart attempted to become the first woman pilot to fly around the globe, but was last heard from on July 2, 1937.

A Dallas man is skeptical of new evidence which suggests missing aviator Amelia Earhart survived an island landing in the South Pacific 80 years ago.

She has the short hair style and men's-style trousers Earhart was known to favor.

The photograph appears to show Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan on a dock. Sean Henry, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation executive assistant director, told Today that in light of the new image, he believes Earhart survived the crash. All that was known for certain was that the plane the world famous female aviator and Noonan were flying in vanished and all communication ceased while over the #Pacific on a round the world flight,.

He said, "The photograph came out of a Navy file, a formerly top secret file in the National Archives". But a new picture discovered in the National Archives in 2012 by former U.S. Treasury Agent Les Kinney, may be a breakthrough clue in uncovering what happened to the two flyers. But Japanese authorities have claimed they do not have any record of her being in their custody.

The photo has been analyzed by numerous experts.

Josephine Blanco Akiyama, who lived on Saipan as a child, has long claimed she saw Earhart in Japanese custody.

"The hairline is the most distinctive characteristic, the nose is very prominent".

The first step for Henry was to determine if the photograph is possibly Earhart and Noonan, and toward that end, he enlists the aid of photo recognition expert Kent Gibson, who rated the photo "very likely" to be Earhart and Noonan.

NBC analyst Shawn Henri, who was part of the History Channel's team, said the photo leaves "no doubt" that it's Earhart and Noonan.

They say that may be the reason why the United States hastened to give up looking for Earhart and Noonan. The evidence will appear in a History Channel documentary which airs Sunday night at 9 p.m.

The photo shows a woman with a similar haircut to Earhart sitting with her back turned on the dock with a man that looks like Noonan nearby.
