US Aviator landed at Canefield Thursday; recreating Amelia Earhart’s historic solo Cross-Atlantic flight
A US Aviator has embarked on a historic journey to recreate the flight of Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
Aviator, Brian Lloyd, said he decided to celebrate the efforts of Earhart on the 80th anniversary of this historic mission.
During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island, in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10 Electra.
Lloyd landed at Dominica's Canefield Airport on Thursday, in his attempt to recreate this flight. He will leave the island this afternoon, and go on to Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago.
