Amelia Earhart

Amelia Mary Earhart, of course,  was a noted American aviation pioneer and the first woman to receive the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross for her solo flight across the Atlantic.

She set many other records, and wrote best-selling books about her flying. During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.  She has never been found (though we are working now on an alternative theory).  Out film is reenacted in a surviving model of her actual Electra.
