"Legends" piece on two men's quest to uncover what really happened to aviator Am
"Legends" piece on two men's quest to uncover what really happened to aviator Amelia Earhart during her 1937 flight around the world. Ric Gillespie, founder of The International Group for History Aircraft Recovery, was part of the mid-1980s and early 1990s search for L'Oiseau Blanc, or White Bird, a French biplane that disappeared in 1927, possibly in Maine. He has led expeditions seven times to the island of Nikumaroro in the Pacific in search of conclusive evidence that could prove Earhart's presence there. David Jourdan, currently a resident of Cape Porpoise, is also pursuing Earhart, although unlike Gillespie, he believes that Earhart's plane crashed and sank before reaching land.
