Growing Interest in Amelia Earhart’s Last Voyage

Interest in a long-standing mystery has been rekindled by an ambiguous sonar image captured by a private pilot: What became of Amelia Earhart, the pilot who vanished with her aircraft in 1937? Numerous searches turned up nothing. But Tony Romeo now thinks he has a partial photograph of Amelia Earhart’s fabled plane thanks to his new maritime exploration business in South Carolina. Explorers and researchers have hope. It’s unclear, though, if Amelia Earhart’s plane is indeed 4,800 meters below the surface of the water. Romeo claimed to have been fascinated by the Earhart mystery for a long time. Thus, he paid a Norwegian business $9 million for an underwater drone. The Hugin 6000 is the name of the drone. It has the most recent technologies in it. It is capable of diving to 6,000 meters.

 

In September 2023, a 16-person crew started their hunt in the western Pacific Ocean. More than 13,400 square kilometers of the seafloor were examined. Between Hawaii and Papua New Guinea, on Howland Island, the crew conducted a search. But the researchers did not notice the hazy yellow outline of what appeared to be a jet until they examined the sonar data in December. Ultimately, we were able to produce a picture of what we firmly think is Amelia’s plane, Romeo told the Associated Press. To further investigate the mysterious object, the next step is to take a camera underwater. Romeo stated that the aim would be to lift Amelia Earhart’s aircraft if the explorers’ aspirations are validated by camera images.

 

While traveling to Howland Island from New Guinea, Amelia Earhart and Amelia Noonan vanished. She was attempting to become the first female pilot to complete a round-the-world flight with that expedition. She had communicated via radio that her gasoline supply was low. The Navy searched, but they came up empty. The official line of the US government has been that Noonan and Amelia Earhart perished along with their aircraft. Numerous theories have been proposed since then. Among them are the claims that Amelia Earhart was abducted by aliens, lived in New Jersey under a false identity, perished on an island, or was murdered by the Japanese. Romeo declared, “Amelia is America’s favorite missing person.”
