Travel Website of the Week: The Amelia Project

AmeliaHow about this story: A 31-year-old pilot named Amelia Earhart (no relation to her famous namesake) took off last week from Oakland, California in a single-engine plane (a Pilatus PC-12 NG) hoping to make history. She is planning to recreate the same around-the-world flight as the original Amelia Earhart, only hers will have 17 stops and cover approximately 24,300 nautical miles. The trip is expected to take close to three weeks and she’s already made it to South America and Africa. Check out the Amelia Project to learn more!
