Amelia Earhart
In 1932, in a small field in northern Ireland, a man watched an airplane land. He walked to the airplane and the pilot jumped out. The pilot was a young woman! With a big smile the woman asked, “Where am I?” “InGallegher’s pasture,” he said. “Have you come far?” “From America,” she said.The pilot was Amelia Earhart. Amelia was a member of a famous group of women pilots called the “Ninety- Nines.” The Ninety-Nines began with 99 members in 1930. By 1935, there were over 600 women in the group.Amelia Earhart was the first woman pilot to fly over the Atlantic by herself. She became a national heroine. Next, she wanted a bigger challenge. She wanted to fly around the world.On June 1, 1937, she started her journey around the world from Miami, Florida. She stopped in Puerto Rico,Karachi, Calcutta, Bangkok, Singapore, and Bandoeng.
