Just clicked the second link (Mashable). The aeroplane is a Pilatus PC-12 a single engine turboprop that has been modified with extra fuel tanks and probably high end navigation equipment for those long ocean crossing legs. This a bit bolder than the original Amelia. who flew a twin engine Lockheed Electra. Of course, her single engine is far more advanced and reliable than the early engines on the ancient Electra.

Godspeed Amelia.
