One investigator thinks that a metal fragment could solve the mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance. The aviatrix disappeared in 1937 over the Pacific; the aircraft fragment was found on Gardner Island, 300 kms SE of her destination. I have my doubts, as she had a habit of being off-course to the NORTH. In a previous flight, she missed her target by 200 km North (but landed anyway because she was aiming for Africa - hard to miss). bg
