Amelia Earhart’s Lost Plane May Have Been Found in the South Pacific

Amelia Earhart was the first female of her kind; in fact, she set records for it. As the first female aviator to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean alone, she made the headlines of the 1920’s. And now, almost a century later, she’s still making news as the mystery of her disappearance comes more into light.
