With a last name like “Airheart” you kind of are just destined to do something with a plane.
Amelia may have worn shoes too big because your feet swell when you fly at high altitudes

You guys should next do a series called "Buzzfeed unsolved- Roadtrip" and self-sufficiently road trip in a camper van around America to different states' random scariest crime/mystery destinations (like camp near Area-51 and do a paranormal episode)

After watching captain marvel.. she probably got abducted by Kree and ended up by the name Hart 🤣🤣
Amelia Earhart : I'm out of fuel and plummeting into the water. Goodbye I am about to die.

Ryan : Although she said she was about to die and her body was found she may still be alive living in Cuba with a secret lover called Javier

the scary thing is that Earhart and Noonan are the only people on the planet who actually knows what happened.

If the plane crashes under water, they would have found it...

it's not an unsolved episode without Ryan's wheeze
Interestingly, the Japanese Navy worked with the US Navy for the searching mission for Earhart.

So Amelia Earhart is the Krabby Patty’s secret ingredient.

Shane really hits the nose on the head (for once) when he points out how many "unsolved mysteries" are marked by carelessly lost or discarded evidence.
I love how these two are always completely at odds but seem to have such great chemistry and seem to GENUINELY like each other 😊

i love how shane and ryan are like an old married couple who always disagree but still love each other
So Amelia Earhart could had been eaten by the same crabs in Crab Rave?
They try so hard to be funny is just clingy cute couple tho 😂
Why is this a mystery? It’s a tragedy.

"New-phin-land" not "new-found-lind". "Phin" is like "fin" but subtly softer on the F sound.
Actually Michael Jordan disappeared when Looney Tunes kiddnaped him. So yeaah...

Omg I was on tick Tock and someone said they found Amelia missing airplane in the water wtf
Was that absolutely terrifying mannequin in the background really necessary?
I think she somehow went to a parallel universe and the radio I guess made a connection between universes.

I can't hear a story about Amelia Earhart with out recalling another woman pilot. My great aunt Gayle Burns.
I mentioned that I wanted to learn to fly, off hand, to her when I was 9 or so.
She had a delighted reaction, but I made the mistake of mentioning Amelia Earhart.
Suddenly my usually jolly favorite great aunt got very serious and started waggling her finger in my face, delivering a stern lecture about learning instrumentation.
In the middle of all that I learned that she personally knew Amelia, was a pilot, was a member of The 99 when it was a much smaller number (12?)... and mostly I had better be better than Amelia Earhart!

I did have a chance to get my pilot license when I was attending NWMSU, but I made a mistake of mentioning the plan to the grandfather (Gayle's brother in law) that was paying for my college education at the time.
My allotment for the semester was cut off just that quickly, until I promised I would not take the course. (Seriously, it was a steal at $500, vs the $1500 regular source at that time... listed as a science course...sheesh! And my rationale was for when the family wanted to fly... Well... considering my other grandparents were more likely to benefit, and his quirks in that realm... 😣 Soup opera stupidity...)

Any rate, you didn't mention her instrumentation short comings...

Please do an episode about the Hash Slinging Slasher. He is so creepy and has commited many murders. He likes to sneak into local restaurants and terrorize the employees. And the scary thing is... He's never been caught. I get the chills just writing this.

*the watcher*
I know it’s just to have some movement on the screen, but the propellers shouldn’t be spinning at 2:54 while they’re up there checking things out lol
I think the most shocking and craziest thing about this video... Is finding out that Ryan is 5'10!!! I was dead sure he was like 5'4 or 5'5 !!!! LOLLLL
