Although we are in the midst of our Titanic Photographic Series, I would like to tell you about another very exciting wreck project that we led this summer. We had many diverse diving expeditions and projects in 2005 (see Updated News section of our corporate web site) but the most unique expedition of the year was the huge diving operation that we had in collaboration with the Naval Historical Center and NBC News. There will be more web log articles about this project later this month but I don't want to give away any of our discoveries just yet. As a sneak preview, visit this website that was recently created by the NBC News/Sci Fi Channel announcing the exciting documentary that will air on November 27th.
As part of the recognition of the 27 lost airmen, a resolution was introduced in Congress that would memorialize these brave Navy aviators. This congressional resolution has received formal approval and will be officially unveiled as part of a ceremony on Capitol Hill on Thursday November 17th. A global news conference has been scheduled up on the Hill to introduce this new exciting documentary and I will be one of the guests of honor with Florida Congressman Clay Shaw; NBC News Anchor Lester Holt; Bonnie Hammer, president of USA Networks and the Sci Fi Channel; and Dave Howe, Executive Vice President and GM of the Sci Fi Channel. This scientific research expedition was undertaken like no other previous expedition before to discover and explore the mysteries behind the disappearance of these Naval aircraft. This SPECIAL two-hour documentary will premiere on the Sci Fi Channel on November 27th at 9 pm EST/8 pm Central. Check your local listings for this show outside of the United States and out West.
