Ric Gillespie, executive director of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, has shown aircraft debris that washed up on Nikumaroro, an uninhabited South Pacific atoll where Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan are believed to have landed and ultimately perished as castaways.
The debris is the subject of new materials analysis that may result in conclusive proof that the wreckage came from Amelia Earhart´s aircraft.
Twenty-five years of research and ten archaeological expeditions to the South Pacific have brought TIGHAR to the brink of conclusive proof of Earhart´s fate. Its website is at www.tighar.org
