Have They Found Amelia Earhart's Plane?

Short answer: we don't know yet.


This past Saturday, January 27th, 2024, Tony Romeo, CEO of Deep Sea Vision, made an unexpected announcement: the company's recent expedition believes they have taken a sonar image of what may be Amelia Earhart's missing Lockheed Electra.


The image is not a photograph, but rather an image created by scanning the sea floor with sound waves. It was taken roughly 100 miles off the coast of Howland Island, which is the island that Fred and Amelia were aiming for when they disappeared. The sonar image is grainy and unfocused, and whatever the subject of the image is lies 16,000 feet underwater (for reference, the Titanic is about 12,500 feet underwater). This means that properly identifying the object will be difficult, but Deep Sea Vision is currently working on plans to return to the site as soon as they can to further explore. Many people are cautiously optimistic about this news, but many others point to other theories that they believe explain what happened to Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan on July 2nd, 1937.


While this is an exciting news story, there is much more research needed before anyone can say conclusively if the image shows Amelia Earhart's long lost plane.
