In 1937, Amelia Earhart made two attempts to fly around the world — on the second of which she famously vanished over the Pacific Ocean.

Now, footage (below) that is believed to have been never-before-seen was unearthed and it shows the famous pilot before she took flight!

The newly discovered film — recorded at an airfield in Oakland, CA — shows a joyful Earhart posing for photos with her plane, the Lockheed Electra L-10E!

Also shown is the aviator’s husband George Putman, her navigator Fred Noonan, and personal photographer Albert Bresnik.

The footage is thought to be recorded by Albert’s brother John Bresnik, whose son John discovered the grainy 16 mm film in his late father’s office. Bresnik said:

“I didn’t even know what was on the film until my dad died and I took it home and watched it. It just always sat it in a plain box on a shelf in his office, and on the outside it said, ‘Amelia Earhart, Burbank Airport, 1937.'”

The film is now titled Amelia Earhart’s Last Photo Shoot, and it will be released in July with an 80-page book, written by Nicole Swinford, who believes the footage was shot before the pilot’s fatal flight in May!

Though other historians believe the recording was shot in March before Earhart’s first unsuccessful attempt after she crashed during her first stop in Hawaii.

Either way, this newly discovered film (below) could very well be the last surviving footage of the historic figure!
