Tim has this to say abolut being on the project- “You enter the water and begin to your decent to verify a plane with an MIA that had been lost for over 70 years. Then there it is directly below you and you realize that you are the first person to see it since it went down. There was an emotion that I felt that cannot be described. Being involved of this project is one of the most honourable endeavours I will ever participate in.”
