TIGHAR Expedition to Kanton

Description

In 1998, TIGHAR sent a team to Kanton Island, as part of their research into possible alternative explanations for the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. The photos in this collection are from their stopover on Palmyra to refuel, and include pictures from around the island, as well as of the atolls caretaker at the time, Roger Lextrait.

From the organization's website:

"TIGHAR (pronounced “tiger”) is the acronym for The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, a non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting responsible aviation archaeology and historic preservation. "
