The Search Is On to Find 15 Missing Passengers and Crew of Pan Am Airways Flight 229 that Disappeared Without a Trace While on a Rescue Mission to Bring Home Amelia Earhart.
LEESBURG, Va., Oct. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Lost Clipper Expedition 5 announced plans today to send an International Expedition to a small remote Micronesian island in the Pacific Ocean where the team believes the bodies of 9 crew and 6 passengers of Pan Am Airways flight 229 are located. Flight 229 disappeared without a trace in July 1938 and is thought to be the world’s first mid-air hijacking. The massive flying boat, called the Hawaii Clipper, was built near Baltimore Maryland and mysteriously vanished between Guam and the Philippines despite one of the largest naval searches of its day.
Guy Noffsinger, a retired Naval Intelligence Officer, has researched the mystery for over 20 years and gathered evidence from four previous visits to the tiny island with the goal of recovering and repatriating the victims’ remains. Together with retired DEA Agents Steve Murphy and Javier Pena of Netflix TV Narcos fame, they intend to reveal the true history of this 80-year-old cold-case. They also intend to uncover how the Hawaii Clipper was on a secret government ransom mission to rescue aviatrix Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan, who also vanished in the same region a year earlier under similar circumstances.
