Lost But Not Forgotten

Amelia Mary Earhart disappeared  83 years ago on July 2, 1937. She was an American aviator, author, and the second person–after Charles Lindbergh–and the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.  Earhart was also a best-selling author. She wrote about her flying experiences (such as, 20 hrs. 40 min. : our flight in the Friendship), and started an international group of female pilots, the Ninety-Nines,  becoming a feminist icon.

Earhart and her crew member Fred Noonan famously disappeared during an attempted round-the-world flight in 1937.
