Lost Clipper Expedition 5: Help Us. Help Them.


(dramatic music) Who doesn’t love a good story? Being in Navy intelligence,
that’s what lead me to find a story about Amelia Earhart that no one had ever heard about. This is Amelia Earhart meets Lost. My name is Guy Noffsinger. I’m am a 22-year veteran of the U.S. Navy. (soft clicking) [Steve] Here’s an opportunity
to set the record straight. [Javier] It’s critical
that we get to the truth and that we rewrite the history books. (dramatic music) [Guy] If you guys can
take down Pablo Escobar, you can solve this mystery, too. This is a new adventure This is something I
think we can accomplish with the skills that we
have, joined with you. This just parallels what we did back then. We’re gonna have to unravel
all the secrets that exist. (plane engine roaring) (dramatic music) [Guy] President Roosevelt
was known for being a massive collector of intelligence. Vincent Astor, Charles
Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart. He had them out there using
their own cover stories to find intelligence that he
couldn’t get from anyone else. (dramatic music) There are articles
published with her at Kodak looking at cameras that were going to be installed on her airplane. Now why would you put a
camera on your airplane? There is evidence that her plan all along was to photograph secret
Japanese facilities. (plane engine roaring) (soft clicking) (dramatic music) (soft clicking) The Hawaii Clipper was
Pan Am’s gem of the sky. On July 29th, 1938, the Hawaii Clipper was taxiing out into the bay. Inside the plane were $3
million in gold bank notes. [Guy] We have everything we need to prove that FDR sent the Hawaii Clipper with $3 million onboard
to bring her back home. So that’s equivalent to how
much in today’s currency? $56 million. 56 million, was on that plane?
– 56. That’s a lot of money! [Guy] Members of the
crew told their family, we’re on a secret mission
to get “the flying lady.” [Javier] One of the pilots,
his daughter, told me that they were on a
mission to rescue “A.E.,” …to rescue Amelia Earhart. I did 30 years with the Drug
Enforcement Administration and we can tell who’s
lying, who’s not lying. There’s no doubt in my mind
that she’s telling the truth. (dramatic music) There were supposedly two guys
that were hiding in the tail. To me, that is really important. Two men, who they thought were
Filipino flight mechanics, stowed away in the back of the plane. Now, they believe they were
actually Japanese agents and those two men took it over
halfway through its flight at gunpoint and flew it to Truk Lagoon. [Steve] And now, we’ve got
two guys hijacking the plane. Why? (soft clicking) (dramatic music) At the time, the Japanese
were building the A6M Zero. It doesn’t have the speed or the capacity to carry a full bomb load from a carrier attack to Pearl Harbor. This engine can get them there. You know, the fact that two of aviation’s greatest mysteries could be connected, this could be monumental. This is an angle we haven’t
even considered until now. (soft clicking)
(low thudding) [Guy] My investigation shows that the Hawaii Clipper was hijacked and flown to Truk Lagoon,
Micronesia, where the passengers and crew were murdered and buried underneath a slab of concrete. [Steve] We interviewed
some folks that said they heard American-style
songs being sung in English. They also discussed seeing the 15 Americans march through the island. (dramatic music) [Guy] This is a story of air
piracy, murder, and corruption. (soft clicking) We need to go back to this island to conduct a archeological dig. We’re gonna have to bring
in two cadaver dogs. These are dogs that can smell
a body under 50 feet of water. We’re going to have to
go find bone samples, so we can pull DNA evidence and if we have that,
we’ve got a smoking gun. If we find their remains in this location, all of this is true. [Steve] It’s a murder
site, a mass murder site. We can bring closure to the 15 families that lost their loved ones over there. And on top of everything else, this can bring a definitive answer; what really happened to Amelia Earhart? Who knows where this is going to take us?
