        I sincerely hope this young woman is planning to use a twin-engined aircraft & experienced crew, and not the expensive trainer-type low-wing mono-plane she is shown with. Even with modern PD navigation, just ggetting air-space & landing clearances from many of the nations over which they need fly and refuke at, is a major undertaking… sponsership is understandibly easier….

          Filo, she has been in the news quite a bit lately. Also, A TV weather reporter in California is also going to re-create Amelia’s flight around the world soon. The adventurer’s name is Amelia Earhart. When she first announced her plans, she claimed to be a distant relative of the “authentic” Amelia, but later recanted that claim. Amy for Bob
