Wearing a jumpsuit and a mouthful of braces, 11-year-old Victoria Van Meter made aviation history Thursday by becoming the youngest female pilot to fly from one edge of the continental United States to the other. Her nearly 3,000-mile journey began Monday in Augusta, Me., and ended amid shouts of "Amelia!"--as in Amelia Earhart--as Victoria, assisted by her flight instructor, banked over a steep mountain and smoothly landed her single-engine Cessna 172 at a small airstrip.
