Example text

Amelia Earhart had vanished. 30 W here was the Lockheed Electra? Amelia must have missed the island and come down in the sea somewhere nearby. So, during the next two weeks, 10 ships and 65 aircraft made a desperate search of the area. They found nothing. 31 Since then, no trace has ever been found of Amelia. And nobody knows exactly what happened. Some people said that she ran out of fuel and crashed. Some said that she floated for days in her life raft. Some said she was eaten by sharks. Some even thought that she had been kidnapped by the Japanese!

29 Several times during that day, Amelia’s voice came over the radio. Everything seemed to be all right. Hours passed. The radio calls became less regular. Faintly, Amelia could be heard saying that fuel was low and they could not see land. Then the calls stopped altogether. Amelia Earhart had vanished. 30 W here was the Lockheed Electra? Amelia must have missed the island and come down in the sea somewhere nearby. So, during the next two weeks, 10 ships and 65 aircraft made a desperate search of the area.

She had to land there for more fuel. It would be very easy to miss. On the morning of July 2, Amelia set out from New Guinea. People watching saw the Electra roar off the end of the runway and then drop away toward the sea below. But it had just enough speed to climb above the waves and up to safety. After a few minutes, it disappeared from view. This was the last sight anyone had of Amelia, or Fred, or their aircraft. 29 Several times during that day, Amelia’s voice came over the radio. Everything seemed to be all right.
