The Ill-Fated Flight Of Amelia Earhart

The Oakland Aviation Museum has many stories, including one of the ill-fated flight that Amelia Earhart, a friend of Elanor Roosevelt, took after deciding on embarking on a long distance flight. As a kind gesture, Amelia actually offered to give Elanor flight classes after her plane ride overseas. However, that flight ended up with her crashing into an island she and her copilot would die in, due to the fact rescuers did not reach them until they had passed.

The legacy of Amelia has pass on well after her death, with the various airborne records she broke as a female pilot.
