Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, best known for his pioneering visit to the South Pole and sailing through the Northwest Passage, disappeared in 1928 when his plane went down during a mission to rescue Italian explorer Umberto Nobile. Only a wing float and a fuel tank from his aircraft, the French twin-engine flying boat Latham 47, were recovered.


More than 80 years later, National Geographic follows an expedition setting out to uncover the truth behind the legendary explorer's disappearance.
