One of the most enduring mysteries of American history – what happened to Amelia Earhart – may be that much closer to being solved.
An aircraft recovery group says new testing on a piece of metal found on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean has them feeling more and more confident that the evidence is indeed a part of Earhart's plane, an aircraft that mysteriously disappeared as she tried to circle the globe in 1937.
In this web exclusive, Anderson Cooper speaks to Ric Gillespie, the executive director of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, and the author of “Finding Amelia: the True Story of the Earhart Disappearance.”
Watch the above video for Gillespie and Cooper's conversation.
