On the 2nd of June, 1937, Amelia Earhart began her journey around the world – the one that would end somewhere over the Pacific. Â On June 26, 2014, Amelia Rose Earhart began her journey around the world to recreate that famousÂ flight. Â However, this Amelia completed that journey successfully, touching down after 19 days in Oakland, California.
Piloting a Pilatus PC-12NG, Amelia and her co-pilot Shane Jordan circumnavigated the globe, visitingÂ 14Â countries along the way and sealing her fate as the youngest woman to circleÂ the globe in a single-engine aircraft.
Almost a year ago, I was present for Ameliaâ€™s announcement of the flight at Oshkosh 2013. Â Since then, I’veÂ followed along like so many others on Twitter and other social media. Â Now that Amelia is back, I was given the chance to talk to her and ask her about her amazing journey.
