Photo helps researchers close in on Amelia Earhart’s plane

They believe there’s compelling evidence Earhart may have landed in shallow waters near Nikumarro island, and an analysis of a photo taken in 1937 — showing what could be a piece of mangled landing gear sticking from the surf — could be the best spot to search.
During past searches, they’ve found other clues, including an eye-witness account of someone who saw wreckage as a little girl, bones that seem to be those of a woman castaway, bits of makeup and a camp site littered with the bones of countless birds, turtles and fish.
But the newly enhanced picture may lead them to the remains of the plane.
