Finishing for Amelia

audio icon Listen to the show

March 17, 1997 -- An American female pilot is attempting to go down in the history books starting today. Linda Finch is trying to finish Amelia Earhart's flight around the world. Earhart's journey, which ended in our death, began 60 years ago today. Finch takes off from Oakland, California in a plane almost identical to Earhart's. We get details from NPR's Alex Chadwick in the latest installment of our National Geographic Radio Expeditions series.
