Quote of the Day

By: Rebecca Melton, Spring Editor & Reporter

Amelia Earhart (1897-1939) was the first woman to fly alone across the Atlantic Ocean. For many years after, Earhart was constantly airborne. Earhart loved flying and broke many records due to her flying, as she was the first women to pilot planes many places. Earhart wanted to be the first woman to pilot around the world, and in 1937 she took off in her plane with navigator Fred Noonan with plans to be the first woman to pilot around the world. However, things did not go as planned and Earhart, Noonan, and their plane all went missing on the trip. To this day, no one has discovered their bodies or the plane. Many theories are passed around about what truly happened, but none of these theories are concrete.
