Amelia Earhart: Has The Mystery Been Solved At Last?

As part of their on-going investigation into the strange disappearance of aviator Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan, the International Group Of Historic Aircraft Recovery (Tighar) is recovering DNA evidence that they hope will prove that Earhart may have been stranded on Nikumaroro Island where she allegedly died.

Tighar has been exploring the island since 2001. They plan to launch a new expedition at a cost of $500,000 sometime in late spring or early summer of 2010.
