WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Two Purdue University students are preparing for a four-day cross-country air race that's for only women.
Seniors Rachel Borsa of Erie, Pennsylvania, and Haley Myers of North Branford, Connecticut, were scheduled to set out Monday morning from the Purdue University Airport in the women-only Air Race Classic.
Borsa was Purdue's co-pilot in last year's event and will serve as pilot this year. Myers led the ground crew last year and is Borsa's co-pilot this year.
A ground crew will monitor weather conditions and help guide the team.
The 2,700-mile Air Race Classic begins in Concord, California, and ends in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania.
The event began in 1929 and traces its origins to women's-only races started by Amelia Earhart and other female pilots who were banned from competing against men.
The man mistaken for a carjacking suspect who was shot by an IMPD officer is speaking out for the first time about the incident.
