Debris Found Possibly Linked To Amelia Earhart

This is very significant news. A coral atoll in the South Pacific has yielded pieces of women's cosmetics jars and cases. They have even identified the specific products and manufacturers, all American and all from the 1930's. The tiny island lies between Australia and Hawaii more or less on Earhart's projected flight path. According to the report (read it here) skeletal human remains were found there around 1940. Unfortunately they have since been lost. Experts are now scouring the waters around the island looking for any evidence of a plane wreck.
