One young woman is striving to make her mark in the record books.
Kimberly Anyadike is flying across the country and she's only 15 years old.
Anyadike says she wants to be the youngest African American female pilot to tackle this feat.
And to make her journey even more memorable, she's flying with a very special passenger.
He's 86-year-old Levi Thornhill.
Thornhill was one of the Tuskegee Airmen. They were the first African Americans to fly for the U.S. military back in World War II.
"It's so, so cool, because I know I have to make the perfect landings. I know I have to make it super smooth to his liking, so whenever he says I make a good landing, I'm like yes!" Anyadike said.
Thornhill said, "Hey, age has no bearing on it. It's all about desire."
Anyadike says she's embarking on this coast-to-coast flight to honor those first African American airmen who made flight history years ago.
