Google Map of Jerrie Mock's Record Setting Flight

I recently posted about Jerrie Mock's record-setting flight around the world. When she completed her 29 1/2 day flight that covered over 23,000 miles she became the first woman to fly solo around the world. I have been captivated by this story. Since I prefer pictures over words I decided to make a Google Map that shows the route she flew and lists each checkpoint along the route. I also provide the time it took to fly the leg and the miles flown per leg. I hope the map and my recent post drives you to your nearest library to check out the book about her flight - Three-Eight Charlie.

I am the guy that runs Av8rdan's World of Flying and the Three-Eight Charlie sites. Just want to let you know this map is very cool, but in the copy above it you tell the folks to get the library book Three-Six Charlie, and it is indeed Three-Eight Charlie - dan

Awesome work.
