Mystery solved? A look at Amelia Earhart’s life and disappearance

American pioneering pilot and aviator Amelia Earhart was a national treasure when she seemingly fell off the face of the earth. Her disappearance has consumed historians, scientists, conspiracy theorists, and regular Americans alike. However, one man believes he is close to solving the mystery. Tony Romero, a former U.S. Air Force intelligence officer and CEO of Deep Sea Vision, recently went on a US$11 million expedition in the Pacific Ocean. During this mission, Romero believes that he detected the wreckage of a plane 16,000 feet (4.9 kilometers) underwater using sonar technology. He captured blurry images of a large object shaped like Earhart's twin-engine Lockheed plane. "You'd be hard pressed to convince me that's anything but an aircraft, for one," he said on the TODAY show on January 29, "and two, that it's not Amelia's aircraft." Romero captured the images around 100 miles (160 kilometers) away from Howland Island, where Earhart was supposed to stop off for fuel but never arrived. The location further bolsters his conviction that he has found the trailblazing aviator's plane. What's more, there have been no other crashes reported in the area that could explain his findings. Romerero and his team plan to take another deep dive in late 2024 or early 2025 to take more photos of the wreckage, in the hopes of getting even closer to the truth. In the meantime, here is a tribute to one of America’s most iconic heroines.
