Argumentative Essay On Amelia Earhart

Some people believe Amelia Earhart didn’t die because she made a perfect landing allowing her to land on a nearby island. While others believe Amelia was a secret agent working the U.S government which points to her close relationship with the Roosevelts. People suggest that the plane crashed after she intentionally deviated from her course to spy on Japanese-occupied islands in the Pacific. They also believe that Earhart and Noonan could have landed on one of the islands and were taken as prisoner. Another theory holds that Earhart returned safely to the United States and changed her name. They say she lived a long life in obscurity, but I believe the real reason and most accurate reason is Amelia Earhart ran out of fuel and crashed into the ocean and died of impact. This reason sounds the most accurate because they never found any body remains. She was flying across some of the deepest and longest parts of the ocean, which can lead to them not finding any plane remains or body remains. They also can’t say she landed on a island because when they found remains they were of an man.

To prove her skills as an aviator, she piloted a tiny, single-engine Lockheed Electra from Newfoundland, Canada, to Ireland. Then, on May 20-21, 1932, and five years after Lindbergh, Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic.” (Encyclopedia of World
