Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart

Researchers are still trying to figure out what happened to aviator Amelia Earhart, who disappeared while flying over the South Pacific in 1937.

The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery — that’s TIGHAR for short — is run out of a converted garage in Rick Gillespie’s split level home in suburban Wilmington, Del. Gillespie’s khaki shirt has epaulets and the words “Search Crew” stitched on the front.

The TIGHAR office is crammed with documents and artifacts from downed aircraft found all over the world. The most precious artifact is wrapped in plastic in a blue tub that might ordinarily hold laundry.
