The black-and-white photo captures a group of people standing on a dock on Jaluit Atoll in the Marshall Islands, including one who seems to be a slim woman with her back to the camera. A new documentary claims the figure is the famed aviator who disappeared 80 years ago this month.Experts on the show claim the subjects are likely Earhart and Noonan.Dorothy Cochrane, a curator at the National Air and Space Museum and an expert on women in aviation, said Thursday the blurry image isn't conclusive.The disappearance of Earhart and Noonan on July 2, 1937, in the Western Pacific Ocean has been the subject of continuing searches, research and debate.The National Archives verified Thursday that the image is from its holdings and was in a file "unrelated to Earhart".While the photo is undated, Kinney strongly believes it was taken in July 1937, and is convinced it shows Earhart and Noonan, based on other evidence including physical landmarks and islanders' recollections.
