Search for Amelia Earhart’s Lost Aircraft

Start

Deep Sea Vision, a Charleston-based exploration team, has made a groundbreaking discovery in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Using state-of-the-art technology and a relentless pursuit of the truth, they claim to have found a sonar image that may be the long-lost Lockheed 10-E Electra aircraft of the legendary aviator Amelia Earhart. This remarkable find comes 87 years after Earhart’s disappearance, offering a glimmer of hope in unraveling the enigma that has captivated the world for decades.

Funded by Tony Romeo, a pilot and former U.S. Air Force intelligence officer, Deep Sea Vision embarked on an $11 million search, driven by Romeo’s unwavering determination and a deep passion for aviation history. Romeo sold his commercial real estate properties to finance the expedition, fully committed to shedding light on Earhart’s mysterious fate.

The sonar image was discovered approximately 16,000 feet below the Pacific Ocean’s surface, just shy of 100 miles from Howland Island, the intended stop for Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, before they vanished without a trace. While experts urge caution and emphasize the need for a closer examination to provide definitive proof, Romeo and his team firmly believe that this may finally be the breakthrough they have been tirelessly seeking.
