The Earhart Project: Film Scanning Fund
The Earhart Project
After ten years of negotiations, TIGHAR has succeeded in acquiring imagery that may finally prove whether TIGHAR Artifact 2-2-V-1 is the aluminum patch installed on the Electra in Miami prior to Earhart’s departure on her second and fatal world flight attempt. The next step is to get the brittle, nearly 82 year-old, acetate film scanned at high resolution – a delicate and expensive operation that must be done on special equipment. Once the imagery is safely rendered in digital format, we can start the painstaking process of forensic analysis. The end product should be a seeing-is-believing comparison between the patch and the artifact that will prove – or disprove – that they are one and the same.
