To help celebrate Jerrie Mock’s 50th anniversary as the first woman to fly solo around the world, you can follow her “progress” on Twitter and Facebook. From March 19 to April 17, the folks behind Fly 38Charlie, a book about Mock’s adventures, will post updates of where Jerrie was, 50 years ago, on her record setting flight around the world. The celebrations conclude the morning of April 17 with the unveiling of a statue of Mock at the Port Columbus Airport in Ohio.
