The Earhart mys­tery

Paradise - - Departure Lounge | News, Briefings, Local Knowledg -

Anew study claims it may have solved the mys­tery of missing US avi­a­tion pi­o­neer Amelia Earhart, who was last seen tak­ing off from Lae in 1937. The study, which adds to the bound­less the­o­ries of what hap­pened to the avi­a­trix, claims that bones found on Niku­maroro Is­land in the Pa­cific in 1940 are those of Earhart.

Anal­y­sis in 1941 con­cluded that the bones were of a male; how­ever, new sci­ence now chal­lenges that the­ory.

The study was re­cently pub­lished in the jour­nal, Foren­sic An­thro­pol­ogy.

The Earhart mys­tery was ex­ten­sively cov­ered by Par­adise last year. To see the full ar­ti­cle go to the Septem­ber/Oc­to­ber 2017 is­sue at airni­ug­ini­par­ ■
