In less than a month, local pilot Shane Jordan of Log Hill will fly around the world, retracing the journey of legendary aviator Ameila Earhart along with a younger pilot of the same famous name.

Amelia Rose Earhart, a 9News traffic reporter in Denver, organized the flight to symbolically honor her namesake and fulfill a lifetime dream.
The younger Earhart shares a distant relative with the well-known flyer, who disappeared in 1937 somewhere in the mid-Pacific on her own circumnavigation attempt.
