Amelia Earhart Redux
Denver traffic reporter Amelia Rose Earhart plans to recreate the ill-fated 1937 around-the-world flight of her famous namesake next June in a Pilatus PC-12NG. Rose Earhart has been a pilot since 2004 and plans to use the flight to motivate teenage girls to consider aviation careers through her Fly With Amelia foundation. Rose Earhart’s flight is expected to last 100 flight hours and make 14 stops. She will be assisted by copilot Patrick Carter. The flight was announced Wednesday at AirVenture. The original Amelia Earhart perished on her famous 1937 flight. Her body and the wreckage were never found.
