Amelia Earhart Possibly Found – level 2

16-03-2018 07:00

In 1932, Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly alone over the Atlantic Ocean. She had to land partway through her flight in Northern Ireland as she had trouble with her plane.

In 1937, the American pilot and her navigator disappeared while flying over the Pacific Ocean; no one knew what had happened to them until now. In 1940, people found a female skeleton on a South Pacific island, and now people believe that this is likely Earhart. Forensic analysis suggests that she may have crash-landed and died.

Difficult words: navigator (a person who guides a ship or an aeroplane pilot), disappear (go missing), forensic analysis (getting and analysing all information of an event to find out what happened).
