Not the kind post I normally make. But, just for fun smile

This was found relatively near to where her aircraft was said to be lost.

Sonar imagery may have revealed Amelia Earhart’s long-lost plane, researchers say

With sonar imaging, a company has spotted an anomaly 16,000 feet deep in the Pacific Ocean that could be Amelia Earhart's aircraft.

“While it is possible that this could be a plane and maybe even Amelia’s plane, it is too premature to say that definitively. It could also be noise in the sonar data, something geologic, or some other plane,” said Andrew Pietruszka, an underwater archaeologist

I will be very interested if/when her aircraft or some other evidence of her fate is definitively found.... until then I'm a skeptic.

She disappeared in 1937. Will any aircraft still be intact enough in salt water after so many years to still show as an outline of an aircraft on sonar?

Some of it will be. But less and less as time and corrosion do their work.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

The article said words to the effect that:

At that depth, corrosion, paint damage and other factors that destroy crashed aircraft over time are very, very slow.

Thus, if they actually recover the craft or get cameras close and photograph it, they they believe they are likely to see its markings. Her aircraft had a very distinctive/unique marking on the wing.

They plan to try and get that close -- eventually. But, the article cautions that until they do, we just don't know anything for sure -- i.e. we can't even be sure its an aircraft.
