After Using Underwater Sonar, Explorers Believe They Found the Long-Lost Airplane Of Amelia Earhart

Deep Sea Vision

The enduring enigma of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance over the vast example of the Pacific Ocean has held sway over the public imagination for nearly nine decades. However, recent developments stemming from a deep-sea sonar survey hint at the possibility of finally unraveling the mystery that has shrouded the final chapter of her life.

Deep Sea Vision, an ocean exploration company headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, has made a bold claim that could potentially shed light on Earhart’s fate. Their deep-sea sonar survey, conducted 87 years after her disappearance, has unearthed a compelling anomaly buried 16,000 feet (4,877 meters) beneath the ocean surface. This anomaly, the company believes, bears striking resemblance to the wreckage of the Lockheed 10-E Electra aircraft Earhart was piloting on her ill-fated journey.

The company’s CEO, Tony Romeo, who also happens to be a pilot and former US Air Force intelligence officer, said, “Some people call it one of the greatest mysteries of all time, I think it actually is the greatest mystery of all time. We have an opportunity to bring closure to one of the greatest American stories ever.”

The discovery of this anomaly marks a significant breakthrough in the ongoing quest to uncover the truth behind Earhart’s disappearance. Employing state-of-the-art sonar technology, the exploration team utilized a machine capable of emitting soundwaves into the oceanic depths.

These soundwaves, upon encountering objects in their path, produced distinct echoes, effectively mapping the underwater terrain. Facilitating this endeavor was the autonomous underwater vehicle known as the Hugin 6000, which played a pivotal role in capturing crucial data from the ocean floor.

The announcement was first shared on Instagram.

Deep Sea Vision conducted a survey covering an expanse of 5,200 square miles (13,468 square kilometers) of ocean, successfully identifying the anomaly located approximately 100 miles (161 kilometers) from Howland Island.

According to CNN, this location coincides with the anticipated route Amelia Earhart was expected to traverse after departing from Papua New Guinea.

“We always felt that Earhart would have made every attempt to land the aircraft gently on the water… the sonar image suggests that may be the case,” said David Romeo, a representative of Deep Sea Vision.

Romeo also expressed the company’s intention to further investigate the anomaly in hopes of obtaining visual confirmation. Specifically, they aim to locate the serial number “NR16020,” believed to be printed underneath the wing of the Lockheed 10-E Electra.

Given the depth at which the anomaly was detected, there exists the tantalizing prospect of preserving objects for extended periods, potentially facilitating the identification process.

Should the team succeed in confirming the wreckage’s identify, their aspiration extend beyond mere discovery. They envision a future where the recovered plane finds its rightful place in history, perhaps gracing the halls of the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History.

Such an exhibit would not only honor Earhart’s legacy but also serve as a testament to the resilience of human endeavor and the pursuit of knowledge.
