The Flying LadyHonoring Amelia Earhart’s solo transatlantic flight
The rumble of the engine. Outside the cockpit, thickening gray clouds.
On ice-coated wings, she flies with determination over the Atlantic’s choppy waters. It was May 21, 1932—five years to the day after Charles Lindbergh crossed the ocean solo—when aviator Amelia Earhart became the first woman to achieve the same. With courage and willpower, she faced down poor weather and mechanical problems, and soared into international fame. So take off into a collection celebrating that history-making flight.
