A trip to the last century!

1928: Amelia Earhart with airplane

Five years after Charles Lindbergh’s transatlantic flight, Amelia Earhart became the second person to make the voyage. She was also the first woman to attempt the journey, flying from Newfoundland, Canada to Londonderry in Northern Ireland. In 1937, just five years after her historic journey, the intrepid aviator disappeared over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to fly around the world. Her plane was never found, and the mystery continues to intrigue history and aviation fans. In this photo from Getty Images, Earhart poses in front of her bi-plane.
