Falling victim to powerful gale force winds, the Edmund Fitzgerald was lost in 1975, along with its entire crew of 29 men on Lake Superior, where it remains today – more than 550 feet below the surface.
Producer and diver Ric Mixter investigates the shipwreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
The dive investigations on the Fitzgerald will have to wait until enough years have past that any distant family members left won’t care. I think they are important for the shipping industry to determine why this ship went down and what factors led to it. I mean aren’t these ships on the Great Lakes built to withstand these incredible storms and waves?
Hi…..I’m trying to find Ric Mixter’s latest book,
