now it is time to talk about leading ladies. Did you know a lady named Amelia Earhart?
Amelia Earhart was an American Aviation pioneer and author. Born on July 24, 1987, Amelia
is known around the world as the first female aviator to fly by herself across the Atlantic
Ocean. Although she was known for her success in the world of aviation she worked many odd
jobs as a telephone operator, nurse and even a tutor. A funny thing about Amelia is that
the first time she saw an airplane she was not impressed. After she died her diaries
were released and one entry in her diary Amelia described the airplane as, “a thing of rusty
wire and wood.” But all that wouldn’t stop Amelia because on December 28, 1920. Amelia
rode with Frank Hawks on a plane ride that that inspired Earhart. In her diary she wrote,
“By the time I had got two or three hundred feet off the ground,” she said, “I knew I
had to fly.” In the early 1900’s, pilots and aircrafts were legally required to be licensed.
Earhart was the sixteenth woman to get licensed by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale.
She had to get this license so that she could have a chance to break flight records. Amelia
was the first civilian to be awarded with the United States Distinguished Flying Cross.
This award was typically given to officers or enlisted members of the United States Armed
Forces who distinguished himself or herself in support of operations by “heroism or extraordinary
achievement while participating in an aerial flight.” Another fun fact about Amelia was
she had the support of another leading lady Neta Snook. Neta Snook was the first woman
to own an aviation business and she gave Amelia Earhart flying lessons at Kinner Field near
Long Beach, California in 1921. Not wasting anytime, 6 months later Amelia was so determined
to fly she bought her first airplane. The type of airplane she purchased was Kinner
Airster that she nicknamed, “The Canary.” Not only was Amelia a pilot but she also loved
fashion. Amelia was one of the first big time celebrities to start her own clothing line.
Here clothes were sold exclusively at Macy’s and Marshall Field’s. The line’s dresses,
blouses, pants, suits, and hats were made of cotton and parachute silk. During an attempt
to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937, Earhart disappeared over the
Central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascinated with her life, career and disappearance
continues to this day and that was one of our leading ladies Amelia Earhart right here
on, “Welcome to Fresberg.”
