Amelia Earhart's Global Flight Attempt
You can catch up on your history and download Amelia Earhart's Last Flight Lockheed Electra L-10E at http://members.lycos.co.uk/Berlin_flightsim. If it's not available then you can get it here in our aircraft downloads.
Unfortunatly this model does not have the extra 1000 gallon fuel tank to extend the range
even though it does have the windows blocked off to show that it is there.
Please fly the route with Amelia's L-10E only. This is for serious pilots only so free flying is not allowed. You may only fly with others if they are on the same hop as you or if you have completed the hops.
The trip failed when they were not able to find Howland Island in the Pacific. No wonder, I couldn't find it either. It's in FS but the island is now deserted and is just an undefined fly speck in the ocean.
If you want to finish the trip, you need to get howland.zip from AvSim or Surclaro. This will add the scenery, runways and an NDB as it was in 1937. This also makes it a little too easy as it will show up on the GPS.
NEW! - More scenery for Howland Island - Howland-2.zip - Not required but it's fun.
If the airfield is not there then you will have no place to land and you will surely join Amelia and Fred in a very deep watery grave.

INFORMATION: Pioneering Woman Aviator, Lost on Flight over the Pacific
Her first attempt at the world flight began on March 17, 1937, in Oakland, California, but ended abruptly with a runway crash in Honolulu, Hawaii, after a tire blew and a shock absorber on the landing gear failed. Earhart decided to repair the damaged plane and try again.
No evidence has ever been found to support either one of these ideas.
