Amelia Earhart Flies Solo Across The Pacific

There’s more to life than being a passenger.” –  Amelia Earhart 

Who was Amelia Earhart?
Born in Atchison, Kansas, 1897, Amelia Earhart was an American pilot who broke many records and is considered a female icon. 

January 11, 1935:
✈️ Amelia Earhart took off for Oakland, California, from Honolulu, in her Lockheed Vega 5B airplane.
✈️This trip made her the first person to fly anywhere across the Pacific Ocean. Many others tried to do the same, yet failed.
✈️The flight took 18 hours. Even though Honolulu was having some heavy rains, the flight took off without trouble and there were no mechanical problems along the way.

Final Voyage:
🛫In 1937, Amelia Earhart took off from Oakland to try and fly across the world with her navigator, Fred Noonan.
🛬On their trip, they went from Lae, New Guinea, to the tiny Howland Island, their next refuelling stop.
🛫One theory states they they ran out of gas and crashed into the ocean near the island.
🛬President Franklin Roosevelt organised a two week-long search for the pair, but they had no luck.
🛫On July 19, 1937, Amelia Earhart was declared dead.
