The year is 1932. On May 20th, five years to the day after Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic in the Spirit Of St. Louis, Amelia Earhart took off from Harbor Grace, Newfoundland, bound for Paris, France. Due to poor weather conditions and plagued by mechanical problems, Amelia was forced to land in a farmer’s pasture near Londonderry, Ireland. But she had successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean – for which Congress awarded her the Distinguished Flying Cross. Then in July 1937, on an attempted flight around the world, Amelia’s plane vanished in the clouds somewhere near Howland Island in the mid-Pacific. Her plane was never found.
