Help TIGHAR Find Amelia

You can help TIGHAR complete the investigation that is finding the answers to aviation’s greatest historical riddle: what really happened to Amelia Earhart?

Thirty years of science-based research and a dozen archaeological expeditions by The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery have established that Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, landed on the reef at Gardner Island (now Nikumaroro) and sent radio distress calls for five nights before their Lockheed Electra was washed into the ocean by rising tides and surf, leaving them cast away on the uninhabited, waterless atoll. Earhart’s partial skeleton was found in 1940 but misidentified. Noonan’s fate is still unknown.

Much remains to be discovered.
