After a plane ride at an air show, Amelia Earhart decided she would learn to fly. After becoming the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, she embarked on her flight around the world and disappeared over the Pacific Ocean.
After a plane ride at an air show, Amelia Earhart decided she would learn to fly. In 1928, she was invited to be the first female to fly across the Atlantic, but only as a passenger. With Pilot Bill Stultz and mechanic Louis E. Gordon, Earhart landed in the United Kingdom on June 17, 1928. Amelia was an instant sensation. After the flight, promoter George P. Putnam began managing Amelia’s career. After several more successful flights, including a solo trip across the Atlantic, Earhart decided to fly around the world. Amelia and navigator Fred Noonan took off from Oakland, California on June 1st, 1937 and made it 22,000 miles to Lae, New Guinea. The next leg to Howland Island was problematic. Overcast skies hindered celestial navigation and it was discovered later they were using inaccurate maps. At 8:43 am, on July 3, US Coast Guard Vessel, Itsaca received the last communication from Earhart and launched an immediate search. However, the plane was never found and her mystery is still researched today.
