Full Story & Expedition Video (Opens in New Window)
In October 2009, Sharky was one of the deep mixed gas divers and medical officer for the Gertrude Tomkins P51D Search Expedition.
“Gertrude `Tommy’ Tompkins Silver was one of 38 Women Air-force Service Pilots (WASP) who died while serving her country during WWII. She is `The Last Missing WASP.’ In October 2009 the Missing Aircraft Search Team (MAST) enlisted the help of expert divers from across the country to search the murky waters of Santa Monica Bay where Gertrude was last seen after taking off from LAX October 26th 1944.” (Dan Crowell of Digital Media Productions)
