A 31-year-old pilot took off from Oakland, California, Thursday, flying a single-engine plane and hoping to make history. And her name just happens to be Amelia Earhart (no relation to her famous namesake).
The modern-day Earhart is planning to recreate the same journey; an around-the-world flight that's expected to take nearly three weeks.
"When I think about the feelings of opening up the hangar door on the morning of the flight and seeing the same view that Amelia saw, it's really special to me," she said.
