From the History Channel
In the first flight of its kind, American aviatrix Amelia Earhart departs Wheeler Field in Honolulu, Hawaii, on a solo flight to the North American mainland 88 years ago on January 11, 1935. Hawaiian commercial interests offered a $10,000 award to whoever accomplished the flight first. The next day, after traveling 2,400 miles in 18 hours, she safely landed at Oakland Airport in Oakland, California.
Two years after her Hawaii to California flight, she attempted with navigator Frederick J. Noonan to fly around the world, but contact with her plane was lost on July 2, 1937, somewhere between New Guinea and Howland Island in the South Pacific. Radio operators picked up a signal that she was low on fuel.
As many readers of this blog have seen here previously, ALL evidence points to Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan being captured and taken to the Pacific island of Saipan where they were eventually executed and buried in shallow graves there.
