Amelia Rose Earhart, a former Denver traffic reporter and namesake of the famous aviator, is embarking on the journey of her lifetime.
The 31-year old pilot is set to retrace Amelia Earhart's first adventure.
Tuesday morning, in a symbolic farewell, she and her co-pilot departed from the same hangar in Oakland, used by Amelia Mary Earhart 77 years ago.
On this trip, Earhart will have all sorts of electronic gadgets on board, from GPS to an i-Pad.
She plans to travel some 28,000 miles, with her co-pilot.
