Amelia Earhart plane part identified

Talk about finding a needle in a damn haystack.  Researches have identified a piece of a aluminum aircraft debris which was discovered on the island Nikumaroro (yea say that 3 times fast), where they believe Amelia Earhart may have crashed.  The piece was discovered back in 1991 and after many many years or research, they have been able to determine that its most likely from her plane.  Another interesting fact, they have found an anomaly on sonar data which they believe may be her plane.  In June of 2015 they will be returning to the island to search for the plane.  After 77 years, the mystery surrounding her disappearance may finally be solved.
