Amelia Earhart

I started learning about her when we learned about Kansas.
I wanted to learn more.

She loved roller coasters when she was a kid. She loved planes.

She had 3 different planes. One of them floated on the water. It was called Friendship.

She had a partner when she flew to Hawaii.
Her last plane was the Electra. The cockpit was only 5 feet in every direction. There were 2 people in the cockpit.
In one of the planes, they took out all the radio equipment because they didn’t know how to use it.

She was probably within 500 miles from an island. She crashed.

They found 1/2 of her plane and they found bones on an island they think were her.
They think that coconut crabs took some of their bones.

  4. I didn’t know she loved roller coasters. That’s neat! Have you heard about Zac Sunderland, a teenager who sailed around the world by himself last year? There are still plenty of adventures out there to be had. I wonder what adventures God has in store for YOUR life?! It will be exciting to see, won’t it?

  7. When I graduated high school I wanted to be a pilot and almost went to school for that. I’d still like to get my pilot’s license at some point. So I love reading about Amelia Earhart. She sounds like a really spunky gal. Thanks for sharing! Hope you are doing well!

  10. Those are some interesting things I never knew about her.
    There is footage of her at my local airport, when she stopped here…and did you know you’ve met someone she’s related to?
