On July 2nd, 1937 Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the Pacific Ocean without a trace. They had been circumnavigating the globe, making successful flights across South America, Africa, and so many of the places that Amelia had dreamed of as a little girl spinning her globe and wishing to one day travel to all these exotic lands.
On the final major leg of their journey Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan lost radio contact while struggling to get a bearing on Howland Island, their final refueling stop before Hawaii. They never reached their destination and famously vanished in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Eighty years later investigators are still trying to piece together the mystery behind their tragic disappearance.
