A piece of history takes wing


LINDSEY WASSON / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Chelsea Olson, a volunteer at the Museum of Flight, waves Saturday to spectators from a 1935 Lockheed Electra as Ted Huetter, with the museum, snaps a photo at Boeing Field. The plane flew from Reno, Nev., to the museum Saturday morning. It is identical to the plane Amelia Earhart was flying when she disappeared over the Pacific, and it will be the centerpiece of a permanent Earhart exhibit opening at the museum in October.
