Amelia Earhart was a fiesty 11 year old when she saw her first airshow. Little did she know that a passing fancy for airplanes would develop into a full-throttled passion. As a committed social worker, feminist, and record-breaking female pilot, Amelia flew right into American hearts-and her disappearance remains one of our greatest mysteries.
