Washington: US The mystery surrounding the disappearance of female pilot Amelia Earhart continues. The clue to Earhart’s disappearance came from the plane wreckage found on the deserted island of Nikumaro in the Pacific Ocean. The numbers D24, XRO and 335 written on the aluminum panel gave clues about the aircraft.
Investigators say the aluminum plate may have belonged to the plane Amelia was on. The help of aviation experts and forensic experts was sought to ascertain this.
Amelia returned in 1937 in a Lockheed 10 Electra to become the first woman to circumnavigate the world. The plane disappeared 14 hours and 56 minutes after the start of the journey.
They got lost on their way to Howland in the Pacific Ocean. There was a search for them for 17 days but no trace was found. Using the technology of that time, the inspection was conducted in an area of four lakh square kilometers.
Researchers get clues about Amelia’s flight from plane wreckage found off Nikumaroro Island in 1991. The paint and notes on the plate indicate that it is the remains of a Lockheed 10 Electra, Radiation and Engineering Center Prof. Kenan Anlu said. Now we need to make sure this is the plane Amelia was on.
It was concluded that Amelia’s plane had crashed into the sea after running out of fuel.
But conspiracy theorists doubted this.
One argument was that Amelia was imprisoned by the Japanese army. Others argued that they failed the mission and returned to the United States under a different name.
