How old was Amelia Earhart when she was last seen?
She was 39 years and 11 months old when last seen at Lae Island, New Guinea on July 1st 1937
Amelia Earhart was born on July 24th, 1897, but as recently as 1963 it was thought that she was born in 1898. She disappeared on July 2nd, 1937, when she was 39 years old. It's my opinion the she died at the hands of an Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force pilot sometime in September 1937, when she was 40.
Amelia Earhart (born 1897) was 39, almost 40 when she went missing in July 1937. At the time of her disappearance, July 02, l937, Amelia Earhart was 39 years old. She would have turned forty on July 24. By a strange coincidence the fatal accident that claimed Harriet Quimby in l9l2 also occurred on the second of July! ( In Boston area harbor.)
