Controversial campaign to US Northern Mariana Islands to honor Earhart



(MENAFN) A notorious campaign is on the way to US Northern Mariana Islands in order to honor the pioneering pilot Amelia Earhart.

Amelia Earhart is a pilot who vanished over the Pacific 80 years ago while trying to fly around the world.

In a step to put a statue on the Western Pacific island of Saipan, The Amelia Earhart Committee asked local legislators for USD150.000

"I strongly believe that Saipan should acknowledge the important historical event dating back to 1937," said Committee member representative Marie Soledad Camacho Castro.
