In 1928, after her first transatlantic flight, famed flier Amelia Earhart made her first of many visits to Michigan to promote the aviation industry and opportunities for women in the field. While here, she set three women’s speed records at the National Air Races at Grosse Isle, crashed at the Michigan State Fair grounds, christened new model cars for the Hudson Motor Company, and cut the ribbon for the new Continental Airport. Al & Dave Eicher of Program Source International will share these stories and more of the aviation pioneer’s adventures in Michigan.
