In 1937 Amelia Earhart made her second attempt at an around-the-world flight. Flying a custom-built Lockheed Model 10E Electra equipped with extra-large gas tanks, she would follow a 'close to the Equator' route, thus going one better than Wiley Post's northern, mid-latitude route. In her first attempt in March of 1937, she tried a Westerly route, but a crash on takeoff in Hawaii ended that trip. Below are the bulletins from the press as she made her way around the world.
