Biography | show moreshow less
Amelia Earhart (1897-1937?), with Wilman Stutz and Louis Gordon, flew from Trepassy Bay, Newfoundland to Burry Port, Wales (June 17-18, 1928) to become the first woman to cross the Atlantic by air. On June 19, she flew a private plane (which she later purchased) to Southampton, England, and an enthusiastic welcome. That same day, she received a telegram from her uncle, Clarence W. Bates, who was briefly in London, congratulating her and inquiring where they could meet. (The above letter is her reply.) The reaction in American was equally enthusiastic. Earhart would be honored there with a ticker tape parade in New York City and a White House dinner with President Coolidge. Four years later, Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic when she flew from Harbor Grace, Newfoundland to Londonderry, Ireland on May 20-21, 1932, exactly five years after Lindbergh accomplished a similar feat from New York to Paris. She established other aviation records that did not include "woman", such as first Hawaii-to-mainland solo (1935) and first Mexico City-to-New York flight (1935). The unexplained disappearance of Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan (July 1, 1937) over the Pacific on their attempted round the world flight remains a topic of intense debate and speculation.
