Nine Days Left

Amelia Earhart has only a few days left before she disappears from public view but never from public imagination and speculation.  On this date seventy-five years ago she remains in Bandoeng while the mechanics continue servicing her airplane by now almost but not quite as famous as she.  In But This Is Different Amelia knows exactly where she is going as does the woman who waits for her and both know she will never land on the tiny speck called Howland Island.  Neither woman knows that forty years later Amelia must decide whether or not to resume that unfinished flight to Oakland and beyond.
Below is the maintenance report on the even now very famous Lockheed Electra.
