Digital Composite Dissolves

The videos on this page show the discovered forensic reality of Amelia Earhart surviving her 1937 world flight outcome, and later changing her name to ‘Irene Craigmile.’ (Amelia knew the original Irene Craigmile in the 1930s.) The ‘former’ Amelia went on to marry Guy Bolam of England in 1958, to be further known as ‘Irene Bolam.’ She died in 1982 just shy of her 85th birthday.

What you observe when you watch the dissolve videos is Irene Bolam and her former Amelia self superimposed with each other. This website has much information to offer on how this came to be. The superimposed video dissolves here are fully copyrighted.
