No More Days To Go

Seventy-five years ago today Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Electra took off from Lae, New Guinea, headed to Howland Island two thousand five hundred fifty six miles east northeast across the South Pacific Ocean.  The airplane was loaded with 1,100 gallons of gasoline -- enough for at least 27 hours of flying time.  They were never seen again except in But This Is Different

The photograph is one of a few capturing the Lockheed Electra as it pulls away for its last take off.
