Happy Birthday Amelia Earhart!

My family has a couple of pilots and Amelia is definitely a star among aviators, especially women. As most people know, Amelia was the first woman to be honored with the U.S Distinguished Flying Cross award for, or course, being the first woman to fly the Atlantic alone. Everyone remembers her for her disappearance along with Fred Noonan, but she is also known with adoration for her bravery in paving the way for women to explore new fields of work that ladies had never been considered for before.
