Discovery Channel to air TIGHAR’s Amelia Earhart Expedition Special this Sunday

In July, I posted a series of posts about the expedition led by The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) in search of  Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Electra. After spending two weeks scanning the ocean floor and overcoming a variety of technical issues, the group of researchers headed back to Hawaii to go through the sonar and ROV images. TIGHAR has not shared the final results of their search on their website because the Discovery Channel filmed the expedition.

Discovery Channel will air the results of the expedition this Sunday, August 19, at 10PM ET/9PM CT. The special, entitled Finding Amelia,” will explore Earhart’s disappearance, the theories of the expedition’s leader Ric Gillespie, and the final results of the Niku VII expedition. Check your local listings and be sure to tune for what could prove to be a historic event.
