An ambitious plan to build a massive statue of Amelia Earhart on the island of Saipan appears to be gaining momentum.
When the proposal for a twelve-foot-tall statue of the famed aviatrix, believed by some to have crash landed on the island, was first announced in September, it was met with considerable skepticism.
However an update from the group behind the plan indicates that not only are they moving ahead with the concept, it's actually becoming even bigger.
At a meeting of the Saipan Rotary Club this week, the Amelia Earhart Memorial Committee revealed that they now hope to construct a statue of the lost pilot that will stand an astounding 18 feet tall!
