Amelia Earhart never flew to either the Arctic or Antarctic regions. you may be thinking of the sub-arctic San Rafael expedition which had a female observer- the Princess Anne Loewenstein. That"s another MIA case and unlike Earhart, has never been popular with the mass media. The San Rafael got underway on July 4, l927 maybe the idea was to make the northern run in summer and beat the weather hazards.
