This summer the Air/Sea Heritage Foundation will launch an expedition to locate, identify, and document the wreckage of Samoan Clipper (NC16734), a Pan American Airways Sikorsky S-42B flying boat that went down near Pago Pago, American Samoa, on 11 January 1938 with its entire crew, including the airline’s Chief Pilot, Edwin C. Musick. More than five years of research and planning has been devoted to the mission in collaboration with SEARCH, INC. and Ocean Exploration Trust (OET), with invaluable support from numerous other dedicated individuals and organizations. If successful, the survey will characterize a site of major archaeological importance and determine the last resting place of seven aviation pioneers while collecting conclusive evidence as to what lead to their fate.

Our project team will base out of Apia, Samoa and conduct search operations off the northwest coast of Tutuila Island (American Samoa) for six days aboard OET’s state-of-the-art science ship E/V Nautilus from 15-20 July 2019 (GMT +13). Sonar and video data will stream directly from the ship via satellite, allowing anyone with an internet connection to follow the investigation in real time by logging onto ...


The Pan Am Historical Foundation has graciously hosted a more in-depth article that can be found on their website ...


I encourage you all to follow along and be a part of the search for Samoan Clipper.
