Amelia Earhart's Landing in Eureka, Utah
By Annie Feidt
Anchorage, Alaska – It's not everyday a worldwide celebrity drops in unannounced in a small town on the west desert. But that's exactly what happened eighty years ago in Eureka, Utah. The celebrity was Amelia Earhart- the pioneering aviator who's daring life is recounted in a new movie. The renewed interest in Earhart convinced public radio reporter Annie Feidt to look into her own family's history hosting the pilot during Earhart's unexpected Utah layover.
