The Smoking Gun

Amelia Earhart
I was pleased to learn today that a fragment of Amelia Earhart's lost aircraft has been identified to a high degree of certainty for the first time since her plane vanished over the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937, in a record attempt to fly around the world at the equator.

The fragment was found by the search group, TIGHAR (The Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) an organization that I have supported for several years, confidant that their hypothesis was correct and it was only a matter of time before they were vindicated.

I'm personally pleased that my "instincts" are still pretty sharp as well.

Fragment from Earhart's Plane
 I've posted this video here before, but in case you missed it, here is the story I did about TIGHAR and Amelia Earhart a few years ago, in July of 2011.  At that time, I felt that the only thing still missing from the final resolution of the 77 year old mystery was the "smoking gun."

I believe that has finally been confirmed.

If you have a few minutes to spare, I think you'll enjoy the show we did for Fairfax Cable in Fairfax, Virginia.
