The Disappearance of Amelia Earhart
In July 1937 the female flyer disappeared in her plane somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.
She was attempting to fly around the world following the Equator.
With her record breaking solo fights and her striking looks she had become an international celebrity by the time she died.
