Wednesday June 15 (tomorrow) at 8pm Eastern, the Discovery Channel series Expedition Unknown will air the episode they shot with me in Newfoundland last September.  They're calling it "Lindbergh's Missing Rivals"
Thursday morning I'm headed back to Newfoundland with a small TIGHAR team for a few days of data collecting, systems testing, and logistics coordination for the search expedition in September.

I caught the rebroadcast of the show last night and thought it was very well done with minimal "drama" added. It was good to see you Ric, having not had the chance since 2015! Here is hoping that the magnetic anomalies pan out to be something when you can finally investigate them all.

We'll check them, but I don't have much confidence in them. The survey was flown with the sensor 5 meters over the water surface and the transects were 5 meters apart.  That's not tight enough to see something as small as an engine in a magnetic environment that active.  When the survey company gave us their final report they had changed their mind about the location of the anomalies, and when we had the geologists at Memorial University in St. John's review the data they were pretty dubious.
The bottom line is magnetometry is just not a good way to search that pond.  Sonar is not practical because the pond is too shallow.  It's down to Mark One Eyeball and hand-held pulse induction metal detectors.

Looks like we'll need extra immersion suits with hoods and face masks.  :)

Watched the episode and enjoyed it. Of all the "mystery" shows I think the Expedition Unknown crew tries to portray an honest discussion of the topics (and seldom seriously delves into the paranormal, aliens, and conspiracy theories). I am wondering how any of the crash/explosion debris could be under those large rocks. You'd think that the engine would just be laying other there somewhere unless it sunk into the muck. I wish I had some time to come help. This sounds like quite the adventure!
Good luck,
Don...
