What's coming at the Women's International Air and Space Museum

What Happened to Amelia Earhart? It's a question people have been asking for decades. Join the IWASM on Tuesday, August 25 at 7:00 pm as we welcome Ric Gillespie, Executive Director of TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) for a free lecture at IWASM. TIGHAR has conducted several expeditions to the Central Pacific in search of answers to the disappearance and will be heading back to Nikumaroro for DNA evidence in May 2010. Gillespie has recently been featured on ABC News and CNN.

Gillespie is the author of the book, Finding Amelia: The True Story of the Earhart Disappearance. Copies of the book will be available at the museum store for purchase.

For reservations and more information contact the museum office at (216) 623-111.
