MId-Mornings with Eric Holcomb


Amelia Rose Earhart

It was 1937 when Kansas' own Amelia Earhart set forth to make history and fly around the world. She did not finish her journey, her flight disappearing over the South Pacific.  But her legacy lives on in those who find inspiration in her life and adventures. This includes Amelia Rose Earhart, a pilot who just completed a round-the-world flight in honor of her namesake. We talked to her about her name, her plane, her trip around the world along the very same path, and her ongoing efforts to get more young women into aviation through the Fly With Amelia Foundation. She also has a Lawrence connection! Give it a quick listen!
