What Really Happened to Amelia Earhart?

The Delaware Public archives has an interesting sounding talk on March 3, 10:30 a.m. - What Really Happened to Amelia Earhart?

Presenter: Richard E. Gillespie, Executive Director of TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery)


In 1937, Amelia Earhart set out to be the first person to circle the globe by air in the area close to the equator. On July 2, Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan failed to arrive as planned on Howland Island in the Central Pacific. Since that time, their disappearance has become one of the most baffling mysteries of the 20th century. At the time of her disappearance, Amelia Earhart was arguably the most famous woman of her generation and is, even today, certainly the most well-known woman aviator of all time.
