This episode investigates the life and mysterious death of Amelia Earhart, one of the most famous women aviators who disappeared while trying to become the first woman to fly around the world. After compiling records as the first woman to solo across the Atlantic, the first woman to fly across the United States, and from Hawaii to California, she set her sights on a trip around the world. Tragically, she disappeared, along with her navigator, Fred Noonan, on one of the last legs of her flight, in the South Pacific, somewhere near her destination of Howland Island. Or did she? Theories abound that she was really a spy for the U.S. and was on a spy mission of Japanese bases and the build up leading to World War II. Others say she was just as she appeared, a woman aviator trying to be the first woman to fly around the world, and died in the effort. Others claim there is evidence that she was captured and killed by the Japanese as a spy. Strange and mysterious occurrences along the way could lead to either conclusion.moreless
