Amelia Earhart landing site found?

It was a rare event to walk into a lesbian household in the 1970s and not see a picture of the lost aviator Amelia Earhart displayed somewhere. It's not that we really thought she had been "one of us," but she just looked so good in her soft helmet and pilot's leather jacket.

Now the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) believes they've turned up artifacts from an emergency landing on her trans-Pacific route in 1937. I can't judge the authenticity of the find, but the images in this news clip sure remind me why the woman always seemed such an attractive figure. (Sorry about the embedded ad.)
