It’s frustrating. It’s maddening," says TIGHAR of the blurry image (pictured in the inset above), which displays an "anomaly" on the bottom of the ocean floor. This could be huge; after all these years and false starts, we're super close to finding out what happened to a badass woman. But if you're finding it hard to put it into words what you're feeling, pilot Wolfgang Burnside – who flew TIGHAR around the area – sums it up thusly: "Bloody Hell!"
