"1933 Lockheed Vega was the choice of aviation pioneers like Amelia Earhart and Wiley Post."

Amazing that after almost eight decades, Amelia's name still resonates so loudly with the public at large. Just one of the reasons we have to find Amelia and Fred's final stop.

Outstanding - my favorite make and model airplane of all time (in wood or metal) - thanks for sharing this, Russ.  Very cool to see a rare old bird like this airworthy again.
