Earhart disappearance
Born on July 24th 1897 was Amelia Earhart. She was a fantastic flyer. But what really did happen to her? Did she run out of gas? Did she crash into the ocean? Or did she crash onto a deserted island and not want to tell anyone where she was? Many people have different ideas about what exactly happened to her. Still nobody knows what happened to the great pilot. People are fascinated by the mystery of Amelia Earhart.
I believe that Amelia purposely did not want to be found. I think she crashed on to Marshall Island. She probably wanted to live peacefully, without any distractions. But the one thing I do not get is where her body went. Was it eaten by a shark, covered by rocks or dirt, or just deep in the ocean? Lots of search parties looked for Amelia. They searched the ocean for months. Looking underneath the deep blue sea. They looked for signs of her body and her plane. There was no luck what so ever. Even thought she will probably never be found people still wonder what happened to the famous flyer. Still to this day the mystery of Amelia Earhart remains a secret.
