Chelsea Olson, a volunteer at the Museum of Flight, waves to spectators as Ted Huetter, the museum's public relations manager, snaps a photo at Boeing Field for the last flight of the 1935 Lockheed Electra, identical to the plane Amelia Earhart was flying when she disappeared, Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013. The plane flew from Reno to the Museum of Flight Saturday morning, where it was greeted by spectators in period and modern dress alike. It will be the centerpiece of a permanent Earhart exhibit opening in October, and is one of only two Lockheed Model 10-E Electras left in existence.
