Amelia Earhart disappeared in 1937 while attempting to fly around the world with her co-pilot Fred Noonan. Her story continues to captivate people more than eight decades later, and has been the subject of numerous investigations, theories, and speculations. The Disney+ documentary “In Search of Amelia” sheds light on her tragic end and mysterious disappearance.

Directed by Chad Cohen, the film follows Earhart’s attempt to circumnavigate the globe, which ended in her disappearance. The documentary also reveals the efforts of oceanographer Robert Ballard, famous for discovering the remains of the Titanic, in the search for clues about Earhart’s fate.

Earhart was a trailblazer for women in aviation and beyond. She became an icon after becoming the first woman to cross the Atlantic in 1932, and used her fame to advocate for women’s rights and promote the profession among them. She even founded the organization of women aviators The Ninety-Nines.

One theory suggests that her plane crashed in the Pacific Ocean near Howland Island, a planned refueling stop point. Recent efforts to solve the mystery have been made by the company Deep Sea Vision, led by former United States Air Force officer Tony Romero. They believe they have found the plane more than 5,000 meters deep in the Pacific Ocean.

The discovery, if confirmed, could put an end to one of the most enduring and fascinating mysteries of the 20th century. “In Search of Amelia” is available on Disney+ and delves deeper into Earhart’s story, making her one of the most intriguing and inspiring characters in history.

In addition to being an aviator, Amelia Earhart was a columnist for Cosmopolitan magazine and an activist affiliated with the National Women’s Party, in favor of women’s rights. Her legacy continues to inspire people around the world, and her story remains an enduring mystery.
