2.2  Terms and preconditions

In the autumn of 2002, new information was published in the press that, when
 compared with previously established facts, might serve to shed new light on the
disappearance of the “Latham 47” and provide the basis for a search for the
aircraft wreckage. In the light of this, the Norwegian Aviation Museum, in
collaboration with the Polar Museum, arranged a hearing in Tromsø on September
30, 2002. Representatives from various professional communities were invited to
participate in a special expert group.
 

The project’s main objective was to:

                                     -
Collect and analyze validated background material in
                              order to  carve out hypotheses about what happened,
                              and arrive at a conclusion with regard to the cause of
                              the accident in 1928.
                       
                            - Submit recommendations with regard to a possible
                              search operation for the “Latham 47” or its remains.

 

Project duration:
The work will be concluded with a preliminary report on June 18, 2003, 75 years
after the “Latham” took off from Tromsø on course for Ny-Ålesund. The final report
will be published in August 2003.
