Photo Collection: Search for Captain Ulm

Description

In 1934, Captain Charles Ulm and his fellow crew members were flying from California to Hawaii, when they disappeared over the ocean. They had radioed in to report they were having problems and landing in the ocean, not exactly sure where they were. Not long after communication was lost, and the crew was never found.

Because of their proximity to Hawaii, and it was unclear how far off course they might be, Palmyra was searched by officials as a possible location for the crew members, though no evidence they made it that far was found.
