Flying Around The Word
Amelia wanted to fly around the world. She wouldfly near the equator so her trip would be longer.Her navigator was Fred Noonan. The trip startedon March 17, 1937. They flew to Hawaii but theplane was damaged after the crash so they had tofix it. On June 1, 1937, they continued to fly.South America, India, Africa, Thailand, Singapore,Indonesia, Australia, Burma and New Guinea werethe places that they stopped by for fuel.The last message they got from Amelia was thatthe plane was running low on fuel and that theyneeded to land. She and her navigator was unableto locate Howland island, where they were supposeto land so people said that they crashed into theocean somewhere near Howland Island.There was a huge search for her. It cost 4million dollars. Unfortunately, after the sixteenthday of the search, they never found her or Fred sothe search was abandoned in July.
