During the week-long search for the Samoan Clipper, a Pan American Airways flying boat lost in 1938 off of American Samoa, several guests joined the expedition by calling into the control van and connecting with the Nautilus team on watch. In this video the team is joined via audio by maritime archaeologist Dr. Jim Delgado, Senior Vice President of archaeology consulting firm SEARCH, Inc., followed by aviation historian and author John Hill. Hear about the historical impact of this expedition in this conversation with Russ Matthews and team from the Air/Sea Heritage Foundation.
