DINGAR (Palauan Name - reborn/arisen)
Stockbridge High School’s Advanced Underwater Robotics class has been asked to return to Palau in March of 2013 to continue their work assisting the BentProp Project recover aircrews missing in action (MIA) since World War II. This years mission is to search for the last missing B-24 “Liberator” bomber and her crew. Based on our students’ success last year, the BentProp Project asked that we return with our improved Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle or ROV and our towed camera array to help search for and record images of downed aircraft in Republic of Palau. When obtained, the images will be used to identify the aircraft and then her crew. The BentProp Project is a non-profit organization that travels to the Island Nation of Palau each year in search of downed aircraft and missing aircrews from World War II.
