Google doodle honors Amelia Earhart’s115th birthday

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google is celebrating the 115th birth anniversary of Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, with a doodle showing an image of a Lockheed Vega 5b with a woman standing atop it.

Lockheed Vega 5b, was the one that Earhart flew from Newfoundland in Canada to Culmore in Northern Ireland and become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic in 1932 for which she received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross, rediff.com reminds.

Earhart was born in Kansas on July 24, 1897 but it was only in 1920 that she began to fly in Long Beach, California. In less than two years however, Amelia Earhart was already setting records.

She wrote about her flying experiences in 20 Hrs., 40 Min and The Fun of It and was also responsible for forming The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots and was a visiting faculty at the Purdue University's aviation department in 1935.

In two years' time however, as she attempted to circumnavigate the world along with her navigator Fred Noonan, Amelia Earhart's aircraft, a Lockheed Model 10 Electra, disappeared over the Pacific Ocean never to be found again.

75 years after the crash, a $2.2 million expedition launched by the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery has recently returned without any conclusive evidence.
