Maine Company Looking for Lost Aviator

Nauticos—a deep-ocean exploration company based in Cape Porpoise—is looking for the plane of Amelia Earhart in the South Pacific.
What happened to Earhart, who was trying to become the first woman to fly around the world, and her navigator, Fred Noonan, is one of aviation's greatest mysteries.

The task of finding the lost plane is formidable. David Jourdan, president and science officer for Nauticos, the company planning the search, likens the quest to "looking for a contact lens on a basketball court in the dark with only a penlight for illumination." [Link]
