A statue honoring the aviation pioneer is now part of the U.S. Capitol's National Statuary Hall. Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
Richard Jantz, a forensics expert at the University of Tennessee, reanalyzed measurements from the bones. He says they are female and the right size to be Earhart's. But questions linger.
An undated photo in the U.S. National Archives ignited speculation that Amelia Earhart survived a 1937 crash. But the same photo appears in a book published two years before Earhart disappeared.
The question American women often asked Earhart was what she ate during her long flights. She said she used three rules for her in-flight menu. Once on the ground, she relied on people's generosity.
If the photo does show the missing pilot and her navigator, it would lend support to the theory that they went down in the Marshall Islands and were imprisoned. But the evidence isn't crystal clear.
