For those of you who don’t know about Amelia Earhart, here is a little history lesson. Something of a pioneer, Earhart was the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Managing the feat way back in 1932, she received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross for her unbelievable solo effort.
On top of her outstanding flying abilities, Earhart was also a member of the National Woman’s Party and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment. A beacon of hope for women at the time, her disappearance in 1937 still sparks intrigue and speculation to this very day.
Earhart was attempting to circumnavigate the globe when her plane went missing over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Various rumours have circulated in the years since Amelia’s disappearance, but nothing has ever been proven – adding even more mystery to her story. Now however, researchers are suggesting that they have worked out exactly what happened to the darling of the aviation industry.
