Search on for Amelia Earhart Plane

In honor of the iconic pilot's 115th birthday Tuesday, the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery is headed to Hawaii in hopes of discovering the wreckage from the plane that crashed on Amelia Earhart's final flight. The group believes that 75 years ago this month, Earhart crashed her navigator plane into a reef near an island in the Pacific. The group has already collected a large amount of video and sonar footage of the area and will use it for their voyage this week. Another trip is in the works for next year to search the land where Earhart is believed to have survived after her plane went down.
