Expedition Underway to Search for Amelia Earhart’s Plane


A group of ocean explorers left Honolulu February 18 and will be at sea 30 to 45 days on an expedition to the equatorial Pacific Ocean to search a wide area of ocean floor that may be the resting place of Amelia Earhart’s aircraft.  This discovery would end one of the world’s greatest mysteries and locate a priceless piece of aviation history.

The Eustace Earhart Discovery Expedition is led by the explorer Alan Eustace and managed by Nauticos LLC.  The oceanographic systems laboratory from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is using the Hydroid REMUS 6000 AUV for the search.
