Best Answer

Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic solo.

And she was a great role model to all other women. Her message was that you can do anything if you put your mind and heart to it. its also because when she flew over the Atlantic Ocean, her plane had run out of fuel. she had kept calling for help and no one would answer. some people say that she crashed and sank in the ocean, others say they found her bones on an island. but to this day no one really knows. (i know becuase i had to do a report on her)

Did Amelia Earhart ever make it to Howland Island?

Ok here's what happened to Amelia Earhart people say she crashed in the pacific that's true but here is the story behind that. Amelia Earhart was sent on a mission to fly across the pacific. She didn't want to turn that chance down so she toke it. She was an amazing flier also Amelia Earhart had a navigator named Fred Noonan. Amelia Earhart had a piece of paper Fred Noonan wrote on and it said to fly left but she taught it was wrong so she flew right. After a while she knew it was wrong. Ok why she crashed is because she didn't want any extra weight on the plane so she barley filled the gas tank half way and that is how she crashed.
