Did Amelia Earhart Survive Her Plane Crash?

A recently discovered photograph proves that Amelia Earhart did not die in a plane crash but was captured by the Japanese, experts have claimed 80 years after her disappearance.

In the photo there are two people who it’s claimed are Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan. Earhart is sat down with her back to the camera, while Noonan is to the left.

A new documentary, Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence on the History channel, however, argues that the photograph proves Earhart and Noonan were picked up by the Japanese military, who believed they were spies, and taken prisoner.

According to the experts in the documentary, the hairline and nose of the man seem to match Noonan’s, and the woman’s short hair along with the clothes she has on, seem to match Earhart. Also, at the back of the photo a Japanese warship seems to be dragging something that could be Earhart’s plane.

The documentary tells of “a world-famous aviator who got caught up in an international dispute, was abandoned by her own government, and made the ultimate sacrifice,” Mr Henry said. “She may very well be the first casualty of World War Two.”

However, all is not quite what it seems when it comes to the photo. Because not only do NBC News report that the Japanese authorities told them they “have no record of Earhart being in their custody.” But a Japanese blogger completely debunked the photo, and it didn’t take them long to do either.

According to the blogger the pic was actually taken for a Japanese-language travel book about the South Seas which was published nearly two years before Earhart went missing. The book says it was published in Palau, an island in the western Pacific Ocean then held by the Japanese, on 10 October 1935. Amelia Earhart disappeared on 2 June 1937 so unless she’s a time traveler too, the claim made by the History channel doc that it’s her and Noonan can’t possibly be true.
