Un explorador afirma haber encontrado el avión de Amelia Earhart

By Jordi Bou

February 1, 2024 - Los restos del avión de Amelia Earhart, que se perdió hace décadas, habrían sido hallados en el fondo del Océano Pacífico, a unos 5.000 metros bajo la superficie, según investigadores.

The announced is the latest to claim a breakthrough in the decades-old mystery. Founder of underwater exploration company Deep Sea Vision, Tony Romeo, a former U.S. Air Force intelligence officer, said a 16-person crew captured the image late last year during a 90-day expedition in search of Earhart’s aircraft

Over roughly three months, DSV’s HUGIN 6000 autonomous underwater submersible combed across a cumulative 13,400 square km of Pacific Ocean floor using a modified side scan sonar capable of imaging 1,600-metre-wide chunks at a time. Normal side scan sonars, by comparison, only handle 450 metres per scan.

Romeo said the images showed what appeared to be a plane matching the size of Earhart's Lockheed Model 10-E Electra.

Hoping to solve an 87-year-old mystery, explorer Tony Romeo plans to launch a mission later this year or next to find the long-lost plane, which a massive U.S. search failed to do in 1937.
