In honor of her world-famous accomplishments, a modern-day Amelia Earhart (with no familial relation) recently took to the skies for her very own around-the-globe journey. She landed back in California a few weeks ago after successfully completing her circumnavigation, tallying up more than 24,000 nautical miles throughout the journey.
