Shocking Pictures Prove That Amelia Earhart, The Famous Aviator Who Vanished 80 Years Ago, Survived Her Crash

The fate of the famous aviator Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan remained as one of the biggest mysteries of our time. However, a recently found picture may just hold the key to unlocking the truth regarding what actually happened on the final leg of her effort to become the first female pilot to circumnavigate the globe.

Around 80 years ago, while flying over the South Pacific on the 2nd of July in 1937, Earhart and Noonan disappeared as they were heading east from Papua New Guinea. In her final radio communication, Earhart said that they were running low on gas. That led people to think that the duo probably crashed into the sea.

Nevertheless, former FBI official Shawn Henry claims that the photograph below, discovered by retired US Treasury Agent Les Kinney five years ago, proves that Earhart and Noonan managed to land safely but were then captured by the Japanese. It's not the first time that this particular theory has been put forward, but, still, it's the first time that a picture has emerged that apparently supports such a claim.

Take a look at the following photographs and the video, and you'll get a full picture of the story:
