Newly released film footage shows Amelia Earhart hanging out on top of an airplane, walking around a tarmac, and basically just being Amelia Earhart.

The footage had been lost since 1937, the year it was taken, and is now being released along with an e-book called Amelia Earhart's Last Photo Shoot. The subtitle could be, but is not, That's Because Right After This She Disappeared Mysteriously And No One Really Knows What Happened But People Have Their Theories. The author, Nicole Swinford, thinks the footage was taken at Burbank Airport in May 1937, just a few days before Earhart attempted her around-the-world trip.

Almost 80 years after Earhart's disappearance, a lot of questions remain. Like, what exactly happened after she departed New Guinea in her Lockheed Electra L-10E? Did changes to the plane's antenna interfere with her ability to communicate? And could Amelia Earhart be any cooler? We may never know.
