What Is National Amelia Earhart Day?

Amelia Mary Earhart was born on July 24, 1897 and became a famous author and pioneer of the aviation industry. Her most impressive achievement, by far, was her attempt to replicate Charles Lindbergh’s flight across the Atlantic, which he completed in 33 hours and 30 minutes. Earhart aimed to fly from Newfoundland to Paris, but faced very many technical difficulties leading to her landing in Derry after 14 hours and 16 minutes. She was the first woman to complete such a long and treacherous journey and received the United States Flying Cross for her efforts. In 1937, Earhart attempted another solo flight to circumnavigate the globe. Sadly, her place disappeared, and is presumed to have crashed, somewhere near Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean. Amelia Earhart was an inspiration to young women and girls throughout her life and continues to inspire, teach, and fascinate even this many years after her death.
