My home is filled with books about Amelia Earhart, aviation related tokens and artwork… but there is one thing in particular that has been a source of constant inspiration to me as a pilot, a woman and as an adventurer.
A large print of this photo hangs in my home, I see it as I come and go, as I daydream of flights to far away places. This is a photo of Amelia Earhart that was taken over Oakland, CA in 1937 during her flight to Honolulu. It is my goal to recreate this photo in the Cirrus.
This has to be possible, right? Of course, anything is possible! I can just imagine the clean, smooth lines of the Cirrus flying level over the water and the bridges… it gives me goosebumps just thinking about it!
How will I pull this off? I have a few ideas but I also need your help. Do you know of any aerial photographers, helicopter pilots, airplane pilots, enthusiasts in Oakland, CA that would be able to help me out? It would mean so much to me if you could pass the blog on and perhaps help me recreate this gorgeous image.
