You Did It Again

Once more, TIGHAR members and Facebook followers have exceeded our interim fundraising goal. The $20,000 by February 1st Campaign raised $23,520 cash in-hand by the deadline. Pledges, when fulfilled, will add quite a bit more. THANK YOU to everyone who helped.

Donate to TIGHAR

The summer of 2017 will be the 80th anniversary of the Earhart disappearance. Niku IX will put a TIGHAR expedition on site equipped sonar and ROVs to search the main passage and lagoon for aircraft wreckage.

The Engine is Gone

A Digital Globe satellite image taken on November 15, 2016 reveals that the 140 ton steam engine of SS Norwich City has finally been claimed by the sea. A new Research Bulletin, The Long Farewell of the Norwich City, traces the breakdown of the shipwreck with a gallery of historical photos, pictures taken during TIGHAR Expeditions, and satellite imagery. The ship’s deterioration over the years provides a model for what happens to a man-made structure exposed to the elements on that reef.
