An expedition is heading for a remote South Pacific island the group believes could be the key to the riddle that began when Earhart disappeared as she neared the end of a round-the-world flight in 1937, The Telegraph reported Saturday.
The 15-member International Group for Historic Aircraft, which flew from Los Angeles to Fiji Thursday, will hunt for 17 days for some evidence Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, crash-landed on the long-uninhabited atoll of Nikumaroro, the British newspaper said.
The official version of Earhart's whereabouts is that she ran out of fuel and crashed into the sea.
