Location of Amelia Earhart's lost plane could be revealed by a small mark on a black and white photo taken in 1937 - and the 77-year-old explorer who found the Titanic is on an expedition to find it

A small smudge on an black and white photo taken in 1937 is leading the man who discovered the Titanic on a mission to find the remains of Amelia Earhart's plane.

The image was taken by British colonial officer Eric Bevington after his freighter ran aground on Gardner Island, now Nikumaroro Island, in the Pacific Ocean three months after Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan went missing on their attempt to circumnavigate the globe.

In the far-left corner on the photo was a minuscule mark, measuring one-millimeter, which decades later could hold the secret to where the plane went down.

After digital enhancement in 2010, experts said the smudge is likely the landing gear of a Lockheed Model 10-E Electra - Earhart's plane.
