AMELIA EARHART - CONQUESTOR OF THE AIR

In 1928 Amelia Earhart became famous as the first woman to fly from America to Europe. On that occasion she was a passenger but in 1932 at the age of thirty-five, she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. Amelia Earhart was a university graduate, could speak five languages and was married to a wealthy publisher, but she was also an expert pilot who was determined to fly long-distance routes that had not been attempted before.

In 1935 she began a round-the-world flight, starting in California and heading west, but she crashed on take-off in Honolulu and had to give up the attempt. However, in 1937 she decided to try again, this time in the opposite direction. A month after leaving California, she was in New Guinea, preparing for the flight to Howland Island, a tiny Pacific island where no aircraft had ever landed. The distance between these two points was over 4,000 kilometres, further than any­one had flown non-stop before. Amelia and her navigator, Fred Noonan, knew that if they failed to find Howland Island they would run out of fuel somewhere over the Pacific.

Ships positioned near the island picked up radio signals from Amelia's aircraft, but it never landed and, after a time, it became clear that it could no longer be in the air. For two weeks, there was a thorough search of the area, but nothing was ever found and to this day no one knows exactly what happened to Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan.
