raque writes "Following up on an earlier story, a group of aviation archaeologists will use underwater robots along with submersibles and sonar to search for Amelia Earhart's plane. The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery will search this July for the aircraft, which went down 75 years ago. 'If there's wreckage there that can be recovered, we need to know what it is, how big it is, what it looks like, and what it's made of so we can prepare a recovery expedition that has equipment to raise whatever's there,' said Richard Gillespie, the group's executive director."

    A little skepticism kicks in for me, is this an attempt to raise donations for an otherwise non-funded archaeological expedition ?
    Given the letters from little girls with $2 donation being displayed in their "most important sponsors page".
    I am not making the expedition wrong, just throwing what came to my head, after all this is the Internet, where I can say what ever I want and get away.

Man will never fly. Space travel is merely a dream. All aspirin is alike.
