Amelia Earhart Solo Flight

Amelia Earhart Solo Flight

A crowd cheers for aviatrix Amelia Earhart as she boards her single-engine Lockheed Vega airplane in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, for the trip back to London on May 22, 1932. Earhart became the first woman to fly solo nonstop across the Atlantic Ocean when she finished her 2,026 mile journey on May 21, 1932 in under 15 hours after departing from Harbour Grace, Newfoundland. Earhart vanished mysteriously over the Pacific during her attempted round-the-world flight in 1937. (AP Photo)
