All posts for the month June, 2022

This past week, you you have seen Newfoundland on the Discovery Channel show Expedition Unknown. Josh Gates was here with TIGHAR looking for the Oiseau Blanc on the Cape Shore.

Tomorrow, 18 June 2022, I’ll be back at Gull Pond to gather some information for a later expedition this year. Later on tomorrow, at 7pm, I’ll be at St. Luke’s in Placentia where TIGHAR will talk about the search and I’ll be available for questions, and hopefully to hear stories about Gull Pond.

The “plane in the pond” has been an enduring mystery for the area, and the more information people are willing to share, the greater chance we have at solving this!
