From ChasingEarhart: View Ann Holtgren Pellegrenoâ€™s lecture, using color slides, about her 1967 Earhart Commemorative Flight on the 30th anniversary of Amelia Earhartâ€™s last flight in 1937. Ann presented this lecture in 2017, the 50th anniversary of her world flight on the Earhart Trail, during the Earhart Festival weekend in Atchison, Kansas. Ameliaâ€™s 120th birthday and the 80th anniversary of her last flight were also celebrated that weekend.
Chris Williamson, who will be producing a documentary on Amelia Earhart, has been collecting and preserving information on reams of paper and miles of film footage to prepare his extraordinary film. The research of Chris and his team is worldwide.
