"Finding Amelia Earhart: Mystery Solved?" Premieres Sunday, August 19th at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery
On July 3rd, 2012, Discovery Channel and TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) departed from Honolulu on a mission to search for evidence of Earhart's long-lost Lockheed Electra aircraft. Over the course of the 26-day expedition, the eighteen-person research crew aimed to locate, identify, and photograph any and all surviving aircraft wreckage that they believed to be in the deep waters surrounding Nikumaroro, an uninhabited coral atoll in the southwestern-Pacific Republic of Kiribati.
The on-board activities and underwater findings of the Niku VII7 expedition were captured exclusively by Discovery and will be broadcast as a documentary on August 19th at 10PM.
"This is when Discovery truly embodies its namesake. We are excited and proud to be working with TIGHAR, paying tribute to an American icon and hero while developing new technologies to reach back into the past and solve one of the last great mysteries of the 20th century," said Eileen O'Neill, group president of Discovery Channel and TLC Networks.
