Amelia Earhart gained fame and success when she became the first woman aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia Earhart also became infamous in death. She was attempting a flight around the world in 1937 when her plane vanished. Neither Ms. Earhart nor her plane were ever found. To this day, there has never been any conclusive evidence as to what happened to her.
Amelia was the older sister to Muriel Earhart. Muriel's nickname was Pidge. One thing I know they did as girls was have their uncle help them build a home-made sled, and Amelia used it on the roof of the shed. She flew off the roof and crash-landed, but came up with a bruised lip and torn dress exclaiming "Oh, Pidge, it's just like flying!" I know this because I did a HUGE project on Amelia…
Amelia was born in Atchison, Kansas City. (Grandparents' house) She spent her winters with her grandparents and the summers with her parents. When Amelia was seven years old, she made a roller coaster in the yard. One winter, Amelia was riding a sled when there was a horse-drawn wagon on the other side, Amelia quickly ducked and avoided the huge accident that she could have been very hurt.
Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans solo. She also won many aviation trophies and set many records. During an attempt to circumnavigate the earth, AE's plane went down somewhere in the South Pacific and the whereabouts of the plane and her body are still unknown. Some believe that they have just found her bones on some small island. See the Earhart link to the right for more…
