Search for Samoan Clipper Joined by Pan Am Foundation Chairman Ed Trippe

During the week-long search for 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 Ed Trippe, Chairman of the Pan Am Historical Foundation and son of Pan Am's Founder Juan Trippe. Hear about the historical impact of this expedition in this conversation with Russ Matthews and team from the Air/Sea Heritage Foundation.
