She's one of history's most famous missing persons, gone for almost 80 years.

No, Amelia Earhart hasn't been found, but some long-lost footage of Earhart prepping for her fateful final flight in 1937 has been found, and more importantly, released to the public.

From CNN:

The footage is being released in conjunction with a new e-book, "Amelia Earhart's Last Photo Shoot," with text by Nicole Swinford.

Swinford believes the footage was taken at Burbank Airport (now Bob Hope Airport) in May 1937, though others believe the footage dates from March 1937.

Photographer Albert Bresnik was on hand to take photographs of Earhart at Burbank, preparing for the around-the-world flight. The shooter of the film footage remains unknown. The film was discovered by Bresnik's nephew, John Bresnik, who had inherited it from his father, Bresnik's brother. 

A pretty amazing find.
