Ran across this awesome documentary of Linda Finch and her restoration of the Lockheed Electra and re-enacting Amelia's Around the World Flight. In this documentary it shows part of the Lae takeoff that I've never seen before. For those of you who watch this correct me on this if this isnt something new. I was also amazed by the cockpit filming of Amelia on the start of her journey. Overall, it was an awesome piece of filming!

Decent documentary. I didn't see any "new" footage. The take off they show at 22:40 as they speak about Lae, is NOT Lae, as it had no paved runways. Ric could probably tell us where that was shot.

It's the take off at Miami.  You get a quick look at the patch over the missing lavatory window as the Electra flashes by.

Thanks Bill. I was thinking it was probably Miami, but was too lazy to track it down. ;)
