Amelia Earhart, feminist icon with short, tousled hair and dressed as an aviator, an iconic image together with her Lockheed Electra, the plane in which she attempted to fly around the world and in which she disappeared in the Pacific in 1937.

Amelia decided she would become a pilot in 1920, after her first flying experience in Long Beach, California. “When I reached two or three hundred feet (between 60 and 90 meters), I knew I had to fly,” she would later recall. On January 3, 1921, she took her first lesson and two years later she obtained her flying license. In the 1920s and 1930s, she achieved numerous records: she was the woman who flew at the highest altitude and speed then reached, to cross the Atlantic Ocean and to pilot, alone, between Oakland and Honolulu, and between Los Angeles and Mexico City.

The last flight

Amelia Earhart was a celebrity when she, in 1937, she planned to go around the world. Hers was not the first air crossing around the globe but it was certainly the longest: a grueling 47,000 km route near the equator.
