(Reuters) – A team of researchers trying to solve the mystery of aviator
Amelia Earhart’s 1937 disappearance said on Friday that underwater
video from a Pacific island has revealed a field of man-made debris
that could be remnants of her plane.

The footage was collected in July by The International Group for Historic
Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) during a $2.2 million expedition to Nikumaroro
in the Republic of Kiribati.
