Rare Amelia Earhart footage emerges
Rare footage of Amelia Earhart taken just before her attempt to fly around the world and not long before she dissapeared has emerged.
The footage shows a happy and smiling Earhart stood infront of and climbing over her plane, the Electra L-10E, at an airfield in Oakland, California.
Shortly after the footage was taken Earhart made her first attempt at flying round the world in the March of 1937 a feat that was aborted after she crashed her plane after a stop off in Hawaii.
Earhart made a second attempt three months later-only to vanish over the Pacific Ocean. To this day no trace of the aviator nor her plane has been found.
The footage is believed to have been shot by John Bresnik, the brother of Earharts personal photographer Albert Bresnik, and remained sat on a shelf in his home for over 50 years until his death in 1992.
The footage was then discovered by Bresnik's son and will be fully realeased in July under the name Amelia Earhart’s Last Photo Shoot.
