Born in 1897, Amelia Earhart was a record-breaking American pilot, who in 1932 became the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic. The flight was difficult and dangerous. She flew trought strong winds and a lightning storm, and once almost crashed into the ocean. It took her 13 ½ hours to make the trip from Newfoundland to Ireland, where she had to make emergency landing in a field. But she had completed the crossing - and set a new world record. Earhart was also the first person to fly solo asrocc the Pacific Ocean, when she flew from Hawaii to California in 1935. Every previous attempt had failed , not least because the distance is greater than a transatlantic crossing.
Her most daring journey was in 1937, when the attempted to fly round the world with navigator Frederick Noonan. But after they had completed three-quarters of the trip their, their plane disappeared during the flight from New Guinea to tiny Howland Island in the Pacific. No trace of the aircraft or Earhart and Noonan was ever found.
What could have happened to them? There has been a great deal of speculation. Many believe the plane must have run out of fuel and crashed into the Pacific Ocean - Eaehart had reported over the radio that they were short of fuel. But there was a massive search operation, so why wasn't the plane found? It can't have blown up in mid-air because it had used up most of its fuel. Some people think that Earhart and Noonan may have been US spies on a secret mission, and the Japanese might have shot down their plane. Others think that they could have ended up on a desert island, or even that aliens might have abducted them. Or did Earhart and Noonan simply get lost? Neither of them knew much about using the radio equipment on the aircraft.
Their disappearance remains a mystery. Whatever happened, Earhart may have died as she had wished "When I go." she often said, "I'd like best go in my plane."
