Earhart Survived Crash, History Channel

Earhart Survived Crash, History Channel

The discovery was made as part of a History Channel special called "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence" that airs Sunday, and the documentary will examine the mystery of her disappearance and introduce testimony regarding the photograph.

Earhart tried to become the first woman pilot to circumnavigate the globe when she disappeared 80 years ago. Believed to have been taken in 1937, the photo includes a caption indicating it was taken on the Jaluit Atoll, one of the islands comprising the Marshall Islands in the Pacific.

The woman in the photo has short hair and broad shoulders that appear to match earlier photos taken of Earhart. She is wearing long trousers, something Earhart was known for, and is standing near a man who resembles Noonan down to the hairline. He believes the plane on the barge is the Electra, and that two of the people on the dock are Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan.

Did Amelia Earhart, who famously vanished, actually survive a plane crash in the Pacific?

The History Channel investigative team found the photograph amongst a series of declassified information.

The photo was discovered in 2012 by Les Kinney, a retired U.S. Treasury agent. Search YouTube for "Amelia Earhart newsreel" and watch the old news reports about Earhart's flight, her disappearance and the search for her plane. Photographic experts in the documentary compared the man to file photos of Noonan and say it looks very similar.

But according to an upcoming documentary from the History Channel, a previously unseen photo from the National Archives may shed light on the fate of the pioneering aviators.

Japanese authorities said that they did not have any record of Earhart having been captured.

Josephine Blanco Akiyama, who lived on the island of Saipan as a child, has said for years that she saw Earhart in Japanese custody.

According to former Federal Bureau of Investigation executive assistant director Shawn Henry, who led a team of investigators that examined evidence surrounding Earhart's fate, the photo's discovery "absolutely changes history". Some point to similarities between the man's receding hairline and Noonan's actual appearance.

The film argues that Earhart and Noonan were picked up by the Japanese military after they crashed in the Japanese-held Marshall Islands and that Earhart may have been held prisoner after she was presumed to be a spy, according to The AP. There's also the notion that if an American spy took the photo of Earhart and Noonan, the US government wouldn't be at liberty to say one way or the other.
