Amelia Earhart Freckle Cream, A new study has found that dozens of previously dismissed radio signals and a jar of anti-freckle cream could hold clues to one of the great aviation mysteries of the twentieth century. Pilot Amelia Earhart set off in 1937 from Papua New Guinea in a Lockheed Electra aircraft to circumnavigate the globe over the equator, its longest route. But she and her navigator Fred Noonan were never seen again, despite a massive search mounted by United States authorities in the midst of the Great Depression.
Historians have long hoped to answer the question of whether Earhart and Noonan died quickly or – as generations of history buffs have imagined – they lived as castaways. Now, the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery says transmissions were picked up for days after she sent her last inflight message. At the time, the radio distress calls were dismissed as fakes, but the experts say the transmissions prove Earhart did not die in a plane crash.
The researchers also say a jar of anti-freckle cream found in pieces on Nikumaroro Island in the South Pacific – near where Earhart disappeared in 1937 – could provide clues. The late pilot was known to conceal her freckles, and two years ago researchers on the same island found buttons and a zip.
